    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    I don't know how this season will end for the Nats, because of the 'Bullpen from He!!' I expect disaster everytime the Nats lead by less than 4. But what the team has done since bottoming out at...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    Yep. O's have drawn about 17,500 per game this year, down by about 2500 per game from last year, but considering the product, it's not awful attendance, just not what the O's would like to see. O's...

    And there it is. In the 3rd inning of the very next game, the Rays have gone deep and the O's now own the MLB record for Hrs allowed in a season, 259. Congratulations, boys. Still plenty of season...

    Re: 2019 Baseball season

    With this blown save, the Nats have reached the 24 blown saves plateau. Doolittle has converted 28 of 34 chances, the rest of the 'Bullpen from He!!' has converted 6 of 24 chances. What a joke, only...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
