I’ve been fixing stuff all day, so no analysis here. In case you missed them earlier, here are Thursday’s 1969 Revisited installment and morning recap.
I could really use a win tonight. Go Padres!
Nice situational usage by Melvin. Doesn’t he know that Cheo kills lefties?
Insult to injury. Byrnes gets a dbl hit in his corner.
99 … I guess Cruz has a rally cap!
101 … “Cheo”?
100: You didn’t see the Byrnes tyraid? He went off on the base coach and then threw a tantrum in the dugout.
C’mon boys, only chasing 3…
103: See 4sd.com/blog… Cheo is the nickname for guys named Jose
So much for that rally.
#100: Byrnes got a horrible jump on a stolen base attempt and was thrown out easily at second. As he came off the field, he had words for the third-base coach, slammed his helmet and punched a water cooler or two.
104 … I’m “watching” on yahoo … I’m in Oregon … haven’t the bandwidth &/or $ for mlb.tv …
103 … I s’pose “Cheo” is aka “Jose” … http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheo_Feliciano … as in, in this case, Cruz …
64 … Germano got the W tonight for the Beavers … with 7 nice IP …
Looks like Buddy is saving up middle relievers to go against L.A. this weekend.
Did Matty just say “The bottom of the top of the 9th?’
KG needs a base hit here for his streak.
Damn, another hitting streak dies in Arizona.
At least the Dodgers have let the Giants tie up the game.
Prediction: Blum flies to left.
Geoff “White Flag” Blum is up.
115: There’s no one on first so it won’t be a grounder to 2nd
#115: Dude, you’re scarin’ me.
Does this make me a Swami?
If the Giants win tonite, they take over first place by themselves.
How scary is that?
Ballgame. Seriously weak effort tonight.
Let’s get LA! Keep the faith.
122: Agreed, they looked really legarthic tonite. We needed some fire, and we got beat on.
We are now 12-10. Season runs 101-90.
125 … here’s the BP “Adjusted Standings” … http://www.baseballprospectus.com/statistics/standings.php … looks better than I expected …
126 … and, similarly, a BP Playoff Odds report … http://www.baseballprospectus.com/statistics/ps_odds.php … which seems a long ways away …
