So, yeah... the sputtering Dodger offense just managed to win 1-0 on a walk-off balk in the bottom of the ninth.

Someone want to give Mr. Seager a call? Please?

Well, things in Boston sure aren't going well.

Haha, this is pretty much exactly why the Giants didn't wanna go COMPLETELY nuts on Panda. Sure, this is a minor thing, but this is nothing new with him either. He pulled this same kinda dumb s**t in San Francisco. It's easy to overlook when he's playing well, but considering he's been just short of total dog crap this season it just stands out like a sore thumb.

The Sox do NOT look good this season, and this petty off the field stuff doesn't help.

There's also word that Sandoval has gained 33 pounds since Spring Training.

Bryce Harper got hurt. :oops:

Is it Abandon Ship time yet? Or will the other 11 batsmen on our roster figure out how to hit with men in scoring position sometime before mid-September? The Nats have been fortunate enough to be playing in a laughable farce of a division and they STILL can't get over the hump.

Ned Yost is only the winningest Manager in Royals history because Dick Howser died.

Nah, I'm fine with the current system. Just toss out "this time it counts".

Ned Yost is now the winningest manager in Royals history.

Four losses away from having lost the most games, too (I refuse to acknowledge that winningest and losingest are valid words). I didn't realize he was in his sixth year there already. Hey, why not, I guess.

si.com reporting that MLB is cancelling more than 60 million ASG votes.

Good. Unique users & IPs makes not an honest rabid fan base electing one's entire team. If MLB had any sense they'd announce the day after the World Series that 2016 will be fans-players-& managers equalized voting.

Arbitrarily throwing out 60 million votes is stupid and the kind of thing you'd expect from Bettman. You might as well just announce that fan voting is off the table at this point and that the managers will vote instead or something. Who cares if a bunch of Royals players start in a meaningless exhibition game anyway?

Unfortunately, it isn't a meaningless exhibition game to the two world series participants in October.

Alex Rodriguez 3rd person in MLB history who's 3,000 hit was a home run. Boggs, Jeter, A-Rod.

Loved the lack of reaction from the Tigers.

And that dude who catches foul balls for a living was the fan who caught it.

A-Rod,coming back from his suspension,has been on a bomb this year,lifting the Bronx Bombers to 2nd now in the AL East.

There is doubt that he will make the Hall in the future,but there is no doubt he is on the 3,000 list.

to a Rays team that traded away half of their decent players this offseason. Finally, the 2 year drought will be over

Fitting that A-Rod's 3,000th hit was caught by an a$$hole who should grow up.

Max Scherzer throws a no-hitter against the Pirates.

Would have been a perfect game if Tabata doesn't lean into a pitch with 2 outs in the ninth. He definetely leaned into it but I don't think it was so blatant that you don't give him the base there.
