  1. maybe I am wrong, but it seems that Parkes previewed tonight’s NLCS game and not Stoeten, now he is not even writing these just regurgitation.

    • It’s a long story…. Stoeten is humoring his loyal readers so that we can continue posting comments on this site rather than at Getting Blanked.

  2. Man…Rosenthal is quite a force out of the pen.

  3. WTF where the hell is everyone…theis is the MLB plauoffs, letsw get this party started

  4. Trade Joey Bats

  5. This St.Louis – Detroit rematch of doom seems to be inevitably moving forward. Selig will be working the phones to the umps- hey, make sure you’re calling them fair, no bad calls against the Yanks, right?

    I do wonder how low the ratings could be if the World Series ends up a sweep. At this point, I think the best outcome we can hope for is a Detroit win so that the inhabitants can celebrate by using the cleansing power of flame on their city.

  6. So…. who heard PTS today? Leading off the 4 PM hour Brunt was on speaking about Beeston and his contract, and his relationship with Rogers. The discussion was quite interesting, and implied a bit of a rocky relationship with Keith Pelley and Rogers, though they admitted they weren’t entirely sure about it.

    4PM hour today, right off the top.

    • Very interesting. Thanks for pointing it out.

      I don’t think we’ve heard this speculation anywhere before.

      Maybe the reason why Beeston has seemed off message and confusing in the last few years, is that Beest is having trouble sorting that shit out with Rogers.

  7. Well, if Bautista brought back two pitchers that combined provide around 10 WAR, you should probably jump at it because it will take a lot more to get it otherwise.

  8. Thanks, Alli’ssauce.

  9. I had a function tonight so did the Cards win?

  10. I loathe rain delays, A-Rod and the neighbours ugly dog.

  11. Anyone read Drew’s article about Jack Morris? Thoughts?

  12. Fuck Radar, you to me posting over there now.

  13. Crap, postponed

    • We’ll always have tommorow and the memories of yesterday.
      Are we still talkin about baseball?

      • 4:00 start tomorrow, I’ll miss half the game

      • I’m too disheartened by the triumph of science over religion.

      • There are so many songs in me that won’t be sung
        I feel the bitter taste of tears upon my tongue
        The time has come for me to pay for yesterday when I was young.

        • I’ll sing one.Not directed at anyone I just like the lyrics.

          Well it’s 40 below and I don’t give a fuck
          Got a heater in my truck and I’m off to the rodeo
          And it’s allemande left and allemande right
          Come on ya fuckin’ dummy get your right step right
          Get off the stage ya god damn fool,y’know (you know)

          piss me off, fuckin’ jerk, get on my nerves

          Well here comes Johnny with his pecker in his hand
          He’s a one ball man and he’s off to the rodeo

          • geeze RADAR. That’s the kind of music you listen to?

          • First recorded by ‘Showdown’, but written by Edmonton’s own Gaye Delorme, guitarist extraordinaire. RIP big guy.

            + BILLIONS AND BILLIONS!!!

          • Radar, you brought the geezers out of the woodwork.

          • You sure that wasn’t directed at anyone? You know I had to stop going to watch football games cuasse I just knew they were talkin about me in the huddle.

          • Jeez SP and Carl Sagan, you guys are good, very good

            You’re breakin’ my heart

            You’re tearin’ it apart

            So fuck you

            All I want to do

            Is have a good time

            Now I’m blue

            You wanna boogaloo

            Run down to Tramps

            Have a dance or two–ooh!

            You’re breaking my heart

            You’re tearin’ it apart

            But fuck you

          • Harry’s one of my main guys, Radar.

          • I’d rather be dead, I’d rather be dead
            I’d rather be dead than wet my bed
            I’d rather be dead, I’d rather be dead
            I said, “Dead than wet my bed.”

            Oh, I’d rather be gone than carry on
            I’d rather go away than feel this way
            Oh, I’d rather be there, where you haven’t got a care
            And you’re better off dead, though it doesn’t seem fair.

          • Impressive SP
            I bow to you sir.

  14. Ok read the Morris article, Drew is reflect the same denceness that he accusses Morris of. Jack Morris wanted to deep in games always, it was his major beef with Steib too. Morris never talked about longevity, just staying deep into the game.
    Maybe Morris is old school, and I like that. Yes Drew old school pitchers flammed out from over-pitching, but maybe not any more so the the baby-caudeled youngsters today….you know the ones that amass over 125 innings over 25 starts. The modern day professional pitcher does not have the sterner stuff of his predecessors, so look for an end to the 20 game winner, the 200 inning a year man, the brush back pitch, and guys that had the intestinal fortitude to pitch on 3 days rest.

    • Hoorah!

      • I remember listening to the inaugrial year of the BJ’s – Tom Cheek and his colour man Early Wynn. Now there was a pitcher, but the fucking guy was horrible to listen to when calling the game.

        • I liked Early Wynn. He sounded like he was half in the bag, but some of his stories were great. It took me a while to warm up to Jerry because I missed Early.

  15. baseball is back

  16. Just went to thE tigers game. Fuck this motehrfucking shit. It hasnt rained barely at all in the last three hours. I have NEVER seen a fucking baseball game postponed with not a single fucking drop of rain falling before the call.

    • It was the only way MLB could ensure that the Skanks lived to fight another day.

    • ouch
      I’d be pissed too.
      Although from my experience, the Windsor/Detroit weather can change in a moment’s notice.
      My sympathy’s.
