What is this Pittsburg?
Wish I could watch this on TV but 3:00 is just too early.
Or else he just made a mistake.
That is a Sign. That is a capital-"S" sign, no doubt.
there both ex-Dodgers too, that's pretty weird.
Its the '93 World Series all over again ...
It looks normal, the ump is being pretty consistent, SO FAR.
Curve, curve, fastball
Curve, fastball, Curve. He's yet to throw a 1st pitch fastball from what I've seen, I could be wrong.
Francis looks awesome so far.
ABC would have "America's Funniest Groin Surgeries" (with an occasional nod to ABC Family), while Fox would have "When Groin Surgeries Attack!"
I don't know how it looks on TV, but on Gameday, there have been some awful "Called Strikes" - including the second pitch to Victorino, which Gameday has over the righty batter's box. Shocking, I know.
That's the way some people see it, but I really feel the Rox have the competitive edge BECAUSE THERE SHARPER right now then the Phills. People don't realize how much your timing goes off when you get 2 days off specially for major leaguers WHO PLAY NEARLY EVERYDAY.
Mark, what were you saying about Francis losing his command?
I liked how Chad pitched against the Padres, I hope he will become the Padre's nemesis.
57 - Depends on how much $$ the Chitown teams throw at him, but the Flyin' Hawaiian may not be a bad replacement...
79 - Nope! One more year like this would be just fine, thank you!
Clint played pretty well for the Sky Sox, but he's not going to the big club as long as Tulo's around.
Serious, the times I've seen him he looks pretty slick PERIOD.
Much better than his last start at philly.
Hurdle is a strange duck ...
but I believe "Clint Hurdle sucks tactically" answers your question.
I didn't think that type of mistake made it to the major leagues...obviously I haven't been following the Rockies....just inexplicable....
Also, seriously, there's an on-field graphic showing the lead of a runner at first? Who thought that up?
Gordon-Myers vs Fuentes-Corpas. How could anyone ever take Gordon-Myers?
oh my .... then we could be in for a real 3-ring circus ....
Is his nickname Clint "my mind can't get over that" Hurdle or something Manuel-esque like that?
What is Fuentes doing?
Utley is not having a good day. 4 Ks in 4 ABs, ouch.
This year, he was not.
They don't make gods like they used to.
Most Angel fans like Mike Scioscia a lot. If managers were polled like politicians, I think Angel fans would give Scioscia a lot of high ratings and very few negatives.
Wait, something's wrong. Fuentes has contravened a baseball law of nature.
I also can't recall any complaints of Bud Black, but again, I don't know many Padres fans.
There are diehards at Dodger Thoughts who think Scioscia has an Angels team that spends much of its time running into outs.
Mostly, Dodger fans regret the team not signing Vladimir Guerrero.
MTRD, enjoy this game because I have a feeling Utley will not be picking up any more Golden Sombreros in this series..
If that joke is making fun of Brett Myers's victim: yes, and always, too soon.
For a while ...
Man, by Gameday, Dale Scott is horrible, and has only gotten worse as the game went on. The umpiring needs to be fixed.
And what Bob said in 178 . I would've liked Scioscia as manager but definitely don't think he's perfect. Most managers are only as smart as the talent they have around them.
However, a lot of people there think he should be traded so the Tigers can pick up... something.
That was WAY too easy.
OK, over to the Red Sox/Angels thread!
Now it's off to Cardboard Gods for the Angels-Red Sox chat.
At this juncture, it would seem prudent to relocate to the blog hosting the Los Angeles of Anaheim-Boston game chat.
(did anyone else think that strike zone got a LOT bigger in the 9th than it was in, say, the top of the 2nd?)
