Also, I was listening to the game on the radio today and Mike Shannon was talking about Twitter and he called it a twat... I just about died.

I think neitzche is the other one.

And I was at Saturday's game with the Adams home run (with curtain call) and the walk-off error. :mrgreen:

That error was unreal...you NEVER see that kind of a play in the Major Leagues.

Seriously? Did he even seem to catch on to what he said?

No, I don't think he realized at all. He was probably drinking.

Now you have me imagining pitcher wind ups and deliveries
made like Cricket Bowlers.

In the Rangers/Astros game the other day there were 2 outs, bases empty and a routine infield pop up towards right field. The Houston first baseman backs up about three steps, reaches up with one hand to make the easy catch and the ball bounces out of his glove. Beltre steps up to the plate and rips a two run shot into the right field seats.

As of last night, the Phillies were hitting .189 with the bases loaded... last in baseball. First in baseball? The Atlanta Braves at .390.

As of last night, the Phillies, Nationals, and Braves all had the same record in the last 43 (?) games. What's that saying about pennants can't be won in April but they can be lost in April. Not that I have an illusions about the Phillies doing anything, but still...

However, the Phillies are batting .302 as a team in the month of July and hit at a .274 pace in June. So they're definitely doing far better of late than they were early on.

The Braves are still gonna take it to the NL East. Gattis returns soon, and he is a beast in the limited amount of time he plays. If only they got rid of BJ or Heyward and pulled him into the OF permanently. Trade Heyward away for some promising 3B help, and let him wilt away somewhere else. Maybe Texas can send Olt over for him. That'd be nice.

Seems unlikely... More likely scenario: Chipper comes out of retirement.

Freeman beat Puig in the final vote thing.

A lot of hate for Puig only because the fans wanted him in the All-Star game, not his fault. But he actually cooled off a bit, the one who is batting over .400 now is Hanley Ramirez (who was also in my fantasy team).

Maybe part of the Puig hate is because he's kind of a douchebag too...
