    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    Oh for the days of Marichal and Gibson. These guys finished everything. Marichal started 457 games in his career and completed 244 of them. His HoF career included 243 wins and 52 shutouts. Gibson...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    Well, thanks once again to the Nats 'Bullpen from He!!', the Nats suffered a bad loss to the Pirates last night. Strasburg was brilliant, handing a 1-0 lead to the pen after 7 innings. Before there...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    I see Al Jackson, former LHP and mainstay of the expansion Mets in the early/mid 60's, has passed away. I always liked him as a pitcher who took the ball on a regular basis for really bad teams and...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    Fun with numbers (or the Agony of numbers, if you are an O's fan): After their recent disastrous series against NY and Boston, the O's now stand at 37-87 after 124 games, only 2 wins ahead of the...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    It seems game after game that I watch, regardless of the teams involved, is decided by a bullpen failure, large or small. Bullpens are just completely overtaxed in this day of the 5 or 6 inning...

    Can't imagine John letting the error go uncorrected, especially knowing about it. The painted example is most likely the prototype, done before correction. -- Al

    Epic shootout between the Brewers and Nats last night with Brewers winning 15-14 in 14 innings. Back and forth all night. Brewers led 5-0... Nats tied it...Brewers regain lead 8-5...Nats take lead...

    The NFL...and it keeps getting worse, year after year. Used to rank right up there with baseball as my favorite sport, now it's not even Top 5 for me. At least it hasn't sunk to the level of the NBA,...

    If I had Jake Arrieta under contract, I would be worried about his number trends. After his breakout/Cy Young year in 2015 when he went 22-6 with a 1.77 ERA, his number of wins have gone down each...

    Harper's on a tear. He has 6 Hrs and 14 RBI's in his last 8 games, including a walk-off GS tonight against the Cubs. I thought the Cubs had this one locked with a 5-1 lead going into the 9th. Bullpen...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    Four titles in 15 years is impressive. The Sox will be back, as their recent history tells you. I wish one of my teams, Nats or O's, could even get into the playoffs and make a run, but it hasn't...

    Too true. And guess what? The 2020 schedule doesn't look much better as the O's open with 3 w/Yankees, 3 w/Boston, 3 w/St. Loo, and 4 more with the Yankees. How's that for the first 13 games? Ouch!...

    Jason, you are right. At the very least, the 2019 O's remain ahead of the pace of the 2018 O's, having won 3 more games at the 121 game mark. With the Yankees out of the way, maybe the O's can gain...
