Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

You got the bullpen platoon start today Tres. Our #4 starter went on the dl so with no choice Andy Green sent in his string of 2 inning guys and the boys were up to the task. A well pitched game on both sides with our closer Hand (great name!) whiffing 5 in the last 2 innings with his nasty slider. He reminds me of Hoffman-usually nails. Best homestand of the season so far, winning each series and getting the Bravos 2/3 was icing! Good luck for your team on the rest of the road trip. They’re good!

Ps, did you see the beer cup catch of the foul by that gal yesterday? It was a feature replay all over. I’m in love. Cooly snags it on the fly in her lap without spilling the beer, stands and salutes the crowd with the raised cup, and takes a chug-a-lug with the ball in the cup! My kind of lady and a good looker to boot. Classic.

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

I got to see the last 3 innings of it, Hand does have a great slider that could almost be called a slurve. I was a little upset with some of the plate umps calls there at the end, but fact is he was missing calls for both teams. The 3rd strike to Dansby Swannson was high and outside, would have given us first and 2nd with no outs ............ shoulda, coulda, woulda ......... hehe, is what it is
I did see the cup catch, amazing but I am not drinking that beer, just get a new one honey

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

OK Rick, we have the series rematch this time at Suntrust starting Thursday and going through Sunday, play four y'all. We get the Mets at home for two tomorrow and Wed, looking forward to not having that late west coast start time. We didn't do you any favors at the Doyers, lost 2 of 3 including our best pitcher Newcomb who lost yesterday

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

The platoon of castoffs notched another W vs the Redbirds and it looks like they will be getting another start.
Seeya on Thursday, they’re not fooling me though. AAA level for the most part.

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

Sanchez made a great start last night and the Bravos managed just enough runs, but I like the look of this Padres team ........ on to game 2 tonight, McCarthy vs Richard on the mound. Richard killed us last time at SD, he is tough despite the mediocre ERA

The game turned on that “hit batsman call”. Even the batter admitted he wasn’t hit. We’ll get ya tonight. They’re playing above their talent level, that’s for sure.

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

Nice night by Galvis. 5 for 5 and on fire! Richards didn’t get much support early while they booted the ball around, and no favors from Joe West’s crew either, but hung tough long enough for his mates to make up for it with some timely hitting.  Our excellent BP closed it out.
Rubber match coming so good luck.
Play ball!

Edit, why your guys are 1st and mine are last. Good games other than the expanded zones and weird calls.

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

Well, a few glimmers among the ashes. Our rookie starter Lauer is settling in. He came within an out of a complete game shutout of the Dodgers last night. We have two very legit closers on the BP staff and the kids down in the minors are all getting a look.
We’ll gettem next year.

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

A massive hat tip to a Padre icon.
Trevor Hoffman was inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame over the weekend. We long suffering Padre fans have had few high points, but when that ACDC theme Hells Bells came on with a 1 run lead in the last innings and Trevor sprinted in from the bullpen to take the mound, it was a done deal. There would be no last minute come back. His devastating and mystifying change up was unhittable even when everyone including the batter knew it was coming. He was nails!
As a fellow inductee, Brave’s slugger Chipper Jones said about Hoffman in his speech, “I hated facing you bro. Hated it. You had the most devastating change up I’ve ever seen in my life.”
A bronze statue of the legend will be placed near his late teammate Tony Gwynn’s in the ballpark.

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

Well, the rookie pitchers are all getting a shot. Our lagging starters were released and El Paso’s Chihuahuas have been brought up. Baptism of fire time. The Padre’s farm system has a ton of raw talent, said by many to be the envy of the majors.
Go gettem kids!

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

I was tuckered out from 4 days in Nashville and turned the Cubs/Nats game off after the 8th inning.
Great surprise to wake up this morning and see that Cubs rookie David Bote (he's been great so far) hit a walk-off grand slam to give the Cubs a 4-3 win!

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

I was up at 5AM watching Quick Pitch and saw that, thanks very much to he and the Cubs for giving them another loss .......... Congrats to Braves Ronald Acuna who made history last night at home vs the fish, first rookie EVER, let that soak in, ever to hit a home run in 5 consecutive games. And he had two dingers last night so doing the complicated math that is 6 HR in 5 games
He will try it again tonight as ATL goes for a sweep of Miami

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

and typical of Donnie Baseball's fish they had enough of the HRs and beaned Ronald on the elbow, he had to come out of the game and we don't know yet how much damage was done ............ they also beaned Freddie Freeman but he is AOK
Bravos sweep the fish and now lead the division by two over Philly

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

bad timing for the Braves to not show up at home vs the Rockies, swept in four. The series turned on Sat night when we took a 3-0 lead to the bottom of the ninth, and even Minter our best reliever could not close them out. And this after Folty gave up just 2 hits and zero earned runs through 7. I will say this, the Rockies are a very good club and pretty hot right now, was very impressed with their hitting vs our bullpen, made all the difference .............. off to the Pirates, maybe we can make some noise on the road

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

We got rolled by the Halos who are making a serious run for a pennant. The team seems  out of phase right now. When a starter does well, the bats go silent and vise versa.

Re: 2019 Major League Baseball season

Here’s some Kismet.
Padres brought up their young rising star Urias from AAA to play out the rest of the season. He’s a SS/2B who has hit a ton wherever he’s played and fields like a master.
So, you’re a fan and got his jersey to wear at the game, brought your glove and got a seat out in right field. Young Urias hits his first major league dinger and, of course, you catch it on the fly. The usher brings you down after the game to meet him and you hand him the ball.

How cool is that!?
Rick
edit: All the rookie starting pitchers have been brought up as well. The Pads are 5-0 since the kids came up. Maybe the plan is working?
