Real shame that the Yankees got blown out on national TV last night, you really hate to see that

Ya hate to see it. Real shame. Also Derek Jeter on the cusp of ruining his reputation/legend,,,folks, ya hate to see it..

side note I'm giving up on the Reds until they fire Brian Price and promote Barry Larkin to GM. (wishful thinking). What team should I root for now?
It's too bad about the reds, I'm not a guy to cheer for guys just cause their Canadian or cheer for Canadian teams (I hate the Jays almost as much as the yankees,) but man do I love Votto, it would be nice to see him and the reds get competitive again and for him to get an extra base hit but he's usually a slow starter.

As far as other teams the Rockies are always fun to watch

Unless you have to listen to their home town announcers.  Drew Goodman makes Harry Carey seem objective.

Watching the Dodgers-A's last night. Announcer had a great point

Top of the 9th, Dodgers up 4-0.  No outs and A's have a runner on 1st. I cant remember who was at bat for the A's, but the Dodgers had a shift on. Only player on the left side of the infield was maybe two steps left of 2nd base.  His question was, why at that point, will nobody drop a bunt down the line, or just inside out a ground ball towards 3rd?  They won't do it, continue to swing for the fences. I guess thinking he'll hit a four run homer with one man on base.

I so much miss small ball baseball.

People should be trying it more but the idea that it's an easy hit just isn't true, but at the very worst it may cause teams to rethink their positioning against you. Infrequent bunters bunt the ball in play about 46% of the time, and if you took out pure sacrifices I'd expect that number would drop a couple points further, BA when bunting against the shift in 2016 was .467 so obviously if you trust the guy to get it in play you would take that average and should attempt it, but you have to remember that average won't account for the guy that is down 0-2 because he bunted it foul twice and now has to swing away.

As far as other teams the Rockies are always fun to watch

Joey Votto is the only character this team has. Just no semblance of a winning mentality on one of histories winning-est (and first ever) baseball teams. Nepotism at its finest. Did you catch what he did to the Phillies Fans a couple games ago? Just hilarious, I don't know anyone in this town that does adore the guy. He got absolutely robbed of the MVP last year. Giancarlo (MIKE) Stanton edged him out bc of the team's success. It left a sour taste in my mouth which is why I smile now that Giancarlo (MIKE) sucks. I just wish the Reds had some sort of culture/tradition. I miss the days of B. Phillips swagging all over the middle infield, Aroldis throwing gas, Dusty Baker's wristbands/toothpick, Scott Rolen halfway in the retirement village at 3rd, and a healthy Homer Bailey. Not to mention all of the baseball talent the city has been producing lately. My HS alma mater has about ~10 players in the MiLB/MLB none of which play for their hometown team, rather they play for winning programs.

My best friend just moved to Denver, maybe I should pull for them.

Bartolo had a perfect game into the 8th last night. Twins could have probably re-signed him for a box of crackerjacks. lol

Rizzo (I think) talking about shortening the season and taking a pay-cut.


24 games have been cancelled and pushed forward into double-headers. The players union wanted more days off but what they are getting apparently is a big headache.

Man the yanks pitching is awful. Stanton is slumping, just a hard start of the season. Started out slow last year as well but ended better. Hopefully they will turn it around soon cause the Sox are on fiiiiiiiiiire
