Last night they finally figured out how to beat last year's AL Rookie of the year Michael Fulmer,
throw a one hit shut-out against the Tigers

Well, we can't do much worse than that, so  
 
I see tomorrow's game is a national broadcast with Costas et al, so I might go to my Dad's and watch with him. He'll root for whoever hits a homer, which is uncomfortable, but you can at least raise a toast to BuzzFromWyoming if the Cubs hit one out.

Same here. First time i heard of it. Reminds of the NHL Edmonton Oilers during the Gretzky years. They were such a speedy team that playing 4-on-4 was like a power play for them. So they tweaked the rules and off-setting penalties often resulted with the continuity 5-on-5 play.

And yes, the designated hitter sucks.

 
{#Lol}  Yeah, I can imaging the Oilers back then trying to figure out how to play 2 on 2.

Now back to your regular sport.

 As things stand now when the Giants come to Wrigley this Monday it will be the first regular season game they have played there that I have not attended since 2014.  Part of me wants to turn around and go back to do the whole series again this year just to keep the streak going, but then I would be under even more pressure to keep doing it in the future.  It might become an addiction.  I did look.  Tickets are still available for the whole series.

I was unaware they had ever done that.  That is almost as stupid as the designated hitter.  At least they had the good sense to go back to playing baseball and never speak of it again after just one season unlike that other sacrilege.

Picked up this used book today, "The Biographical History of Baseball". I opened it and read this as I debated buying yet another baseball book:

"MATT KILROY: In his rookie season of 1886, Kilroy established an all-but-invulnerable record by striking out 513 batters for the American Association Baltimore Orioles. The next year, with the number of strikes for an out raised from three to four, his total dropped to 217, but he established a second major league record: 46 wins by a left-handed pitcher."

I debated no more.

Tigers played their 40th game of the season last night and the local press is full of Sparky Anderson stories about how he always said "wait until we play 40 games before you judge my team".
So a lot of prediction type stories have been written.
When Sparky used to say that I always thought, so? 40 games is like 25% of the season you should know by then.
Years later after he retired Sparky admitted that his "40 game" statements were just bs to get the press off his back until he could figure something out, he was the best.

So anyway they are doing better than my pre-season prediction of 78-84 @ .481
they are 20-20 @.500 
Bless You Boys! {#Biggrin}
 
 
  When my kid brother was working in Cincinnati he was at a Reds event where Sparky was doing a Q&A.   Someone asked him as someone who had managed in both leagues what his opinion of the DH was.  Ted said he thought he was the only person he had ever met who actually hated it more than I did.  And this is from someone who has had to listen to my not to mention his father's rants on the subject since he was twelve years old.
