    Enjoy it while you can. They have a weekend series starting on the 23rd against my Reds. The Card Killers!

    The Mets finally are starting to show some signs of life as they sweep the Phillies in a Double Header. Taijuan Walker and Marcus Stroman put on pitching clinics, but it's the Brandon Nimmo show in New York right now. Nimmo got on base 5 times tonight out of 7 plate appearances and drove in 3 runs.

    For some reason they either play really well or really badly against the Reds whenever they play...and it's a long season...

    Yeah, definitely a bad night for my Phillies who are 1-4 on their first road trip of the season.

    And now the Angels will need to all get drunk. Though I'm not sure it will help. Still, that ending...

    Oh I will agree with this. I enjoy talking smack to Cards fans. but truth is it could really go either way. The way our pitching has been on this west coast road trip makes me worry about things going forward.

    But even if The Reds go 2-15 against the Cards I am still going to talk mass crap on those two games lol.

    Right now the Cards are hanging on to a few players that they really need to get rid of so they don't help in games against the Reds and others...I just laugh at people who thought that the Cubs were going to be a dynasty after they won it all, and as for the Cards a year or two from now the roster could look VERY different in a guy or two doesn't stay like Arenado and a few others retire like Wainwright and Molina...then again the guys that we have in our minors seem to be pretty darn good...

    I am impressed by you alls farm system. I wish ours was that good. or that when we do get a great prospect we stop trading them after a year or two for more prospects.

    There was a period where I thought the Reds were doing nothing but shuffling prospects in trades. Like three years all they did was trade our prospects for others. Then trade those away.

    Well the Cards do tend to hold on to guys longer than they should...I'm just hoping that history repeats itself, the last time that the Cards got a player from Colorado in Holliday, we won the World Series while he was on the team...

    After that disastrous three game opening to the season for the Red Sox, I don't think anyone thought these guys would do anything.

    A little more than a week later, Sox fans have to be sitting around wondering what the heck they put in the water for the team because they are playing some damn good ball. If they keep this up, they are going to get our hopes up or something.

    White Sox Pitcher Rondon is just 3 outs away from a perfect game!

    Well they went on to sweep the double-header against the Twins, making them only the 2nd team in MLB to reach 9 wins this year (the Dodgers being the other). It still way too early to get excited though. Nobody else in the AL East is over .500 right now, but what is promising is how good the starting rotation has looked. During their nine-game winning streak, the Red Sox's starting rotation is 6-0 with a 3.19 ERA. The starters have gone at least five innings in 11 of the 12 games this season (Garrett Richards first start in that opening Orioles series being the lone exception, that was a stinker). The pitching staff has allowed three earned runs or fewer in nine games. That's the biggest difference so far between this season and last. If the rotation and bullpen hold up, they will be competitive and maybe even be in the wild card hunt all year. If the staff comes back to earth, well, not so much.

    Well he got the no-no, and that's nothing to sneeze at.

    Kind of ironic two no-nos this season lost perfect games with HBP (Musgrove lost his perfect game the same way)

    I wasn't really getting excited. My response was more on the sarcastic side of things. I saw that Garrett Richards stinker and that was when I threw up my hands in complete frustration. He was pathetic. But it is nice to see them playing well. Always better than them stinking up the joint.
