If the trajectory of the Brewers follows that of the Cubs then it's their turn for a ring. Which I wouldn't pissed about. There's a rivalry which keeps getting better but I don't hate 'em like I do the Cards.

You already know how I'd feel about a Brewers championship!

This won't be the Braves' year, but locking up Ronald Acuna, Jr. for through his 20s is a great cornerstone (along with Freddie Freeman) to a pennant-winning team. Today was a good day for the Braves and their fans.

The Twins are alone in 1st place. Not sure I'll be able to say that many times this season.

Tip of the hat to Laureano. Two nights in a row, both throws to nab Bogaerts. I watched both live and was stunned both times. What an arm...:

This one from two nights ago at the plate...looked like a tie to me:

Nice to see both Chicago teams playing decent ball, as of late. Also, great to see Tim Anderson winning the AL Player of the Month.

 

Hopefully the White Sox will get over the .500 hump this weekend.

Well, I was hoping for a far better weekend for the White Sox...  over the three games - 30 runs for the Red Sox and 5 for the White ones -- horrible.

That sure was a weird game at Wrigley today. 15 innings, 5+ hours, it never stopped drizzling rain  but never enough to roll the tarps out. I guess you could call it a pitchers duel but not in the classic sense of the word. Both teams had A LOT of chances to win all through the last 6 innings - bases loaded, guys on third with 1 out, etc. It was like nobody WANTED to win the game. The Mrs. was yelling to just hit a HR and win the damn game. The last time she said it was when Contreras came up in the 15th and I was like, "Nobody's going yard at this point, dear. It's so wet and cold out there it's like the Dead Ball Era". I swear to God 30 seconds later Willie hit the ball out to the street. So don't EVER listen to me. LOL.

RIP Bill Buckner

I hope that the Red Sox & fans give him a nice send off on this short 3 day homestand.

Sad news.

I was at the game in 1990 when he returned to the Sox and got a standing ovation - which was a nice touch.

Apparently while I got busy the Rockies swept the Diamondbacks and took their place in the NL West standings. Maybe I should always be busy and forget to check in.

3 and 1/2 months since there's been a post. I just punched myself in the face with my fist (after I looked at my watch and my wrist).

 

Christ, there have been SO many insane, spectacular things happen this year I can't even begin to list them all! Just today Nico Hoerner (who got called up Monday from AA ball - not for the 40-man, but when both Baez and Russell went down) hits a home run ON THE VERY FIRST PITCH HE SEES AT WRIGLEY. Some stat nerd should figure the odds of that one out.  :blink

 

Anyone feel free to chip in on anything amazing you saw happen.

Also THIS from 5.5 months ago - they were ridiculous last September if I recall. But not unlike Chicago they were pretty battered most of the year. What happened this week was fucking tragic, though. Yelich was right at the top for another  MVP award. The dude was MONEY. And well on a path to be the first player IN MLB HISTORY to be a 50 HR 30 SB guy. Think about that one. It makes me sad even though he kills my team.. That said, they still could very easily sneak in the playoffs if the Cubs continue their sporadic play
