Yes, a very sad story. Right now, I don't think that words could do it justice.

I turned on the game in the fourth so I missed it, but it's one of the more awful things I've heard in a long time. Crazy to think how one tiny difference in the pitch, swing, or toss could have changed things. Hopefully Hamilton doesn't take it too hard.

Suppose he could just as easily blame it on the glare from the AL Championship trophy.

If that didn't make me laugh so much, it would have just been sad. At least the Mavs have a real trophy, so you finally know what it feels like.

A top 2 prospect just got called up for the Halos. Though I despise them as a team, I'm actually rooting for Trout in particular because I like awesome young players who will likely be better than their number 1 overall selection compatriots (poor Strasburg).

I thought the Reds were supposed to have the most pitching dept of the MLB? Not so much, it seems.

Again, I hope you enjoy Jason Vargas.

The giants proved if your pitching is good enough you don't need to hit. I'm sure if Seattle's pitching is as good as you say it is that we'll be seeing the mariners in the post season this year.

Cause they're so fucking good, and Jason Vargas is the second coming of Sandy Fucking Koufax.

SR, Hewson, Phanan.....question for you.....

Where do you think the Rice/Lynn/Evans outfield ranks all-time? I know you're not going to be able to immediately spit out something like "7th, right behind blah blah blah", but, I'd love to hear your take on it. We were talking about the Sox at work the other day and it turned into best trio of OF's in our lifetimes, and I tossed that group out there.....I think they played together for the better part of 6 years, which isn't Whitaker/Trammel but is still pretty long for the same 3 cats.

Anyway, in my lifetime, when I think of great OF trios, I recall them, as well as:

Bell, Barfield, Moseby

Henderson, Murphy, Armas (just 3 years together)

Jones, Jones, Sheffield (2 years but pretty awesome)

Greenwell, Burks, Evans (2 years?)

Alou, Grissom, Walker (3 years, I think, including the strike shortened season where Montreal had a juggernaut) (Oh, and....Larry fucking Walker, good god)

Belle, Lofton, Ramirez (Yikes)

I'm sure I'm forgetting many from '77 or so on, but, these are the ones that leap to mind immediately. If the Yanks had a consistent LF in the 90's, Bernie, Oneill and a 3rd would have been there.....same with Griffey, Buhner, etc.....

So, anyway, yeah.

When did I ever say this? Someone's feathers sure are in a ruffle. He's a solid 3+ WAR pitcher. Add that to the ton of WAR we've gotten out of Gutierrez (the other dude we were targeting in the trade), and it's been pretty spectacular. Turning broken things (Putz, Reed) into things that are producing (Vargas, Guti).

The Mariners pitching has been phenomenal.

Some things in baseball don't make sense. ala Marlins.

Now that's how you collect your 3000th hit.
