CGrand is carrying my fantasy team right now.
SO.......... how is that turning out for the cards,
(Pity its so hard to multi quote with the app)
While we are assured 2 out of 3 we need to beat carpenter and sweep the cards to really send the statement that this is the REDS division!
And woop, Houston got lucky. Lol. They were desperate to not get swept.
Just like the cards will be tomorrow
Of course, Yankee Stadium (the old one)
At least your team is doing some winning. We're getting our asses handed to us by Boston. Baaaad slump for the Yanks right now. Kinda debating if I wanna sell my tickets for tonight's game or not lol.
Yea i just heard about the lightweight Jorge (that spelled right?) drama... he needed a 'mental day?' Sucks bro. Course, lets be honest, you KNOW they will bounce back.
And yea, just saw the discussion about me/reds while i was gone. LOVED seeing jwp talking smack about how cards were gonna take 2 outta 3: couldnt wait to respond to that last night, i asked my supervisor for a quick break just to respond, lol. I explained it to him and he got a kick outta it as well.... Oh yea, Albert who?????
Though like i said, the true test will be can they go in for the kill and sweep them whilst making a statement by finally beating carpenter, think its been a couple years since we've managed that.
Yeah, I know they will but I just HATE losing to Boston. The rivalry hits home! Lol. Jorge's playing god awful so honestly idc if he asked for a day off.
ESPN radio was making a big ol deal about on my drive home about an hour ago (jock and kate show or something like that??). Hitting like 165ish... yea sounds like he needs a day off, wish that was all gomes needed...
And trust me, I know just what you mean. Its why i'm so pumped that we ALREADY took 2 from cards...
Where's jwp at now?!?! LOL
We got swept by Boston and I went to the game last night . Didn't get home until 2 AM due to some freak auto accident. Closed off one of the highways here in NYC. Ridiculous.
Damn that sucks bro. How long were you stuck?? Game was over by 10ish wasn't it?
I watch some of that game last night before i left for work. Tied in the 4th or something...
Salty cause didn't get to see my Reds sweep the Cards. I'm 3rd shift so games were over before i got up all weekend
Chapman is... well i don't know..... lost??? We tried to give that last one away in the ninth....
Lol, 10!? The game finished at 12:02 AM. We were stuck in traffic for a good hour than we decided to make our own exit and took some interconnected backstreets to make our way around the closed section.
Hmm, could have sworn it was middle of the 4th when i left for work at 830pm.... thats what i get for thinking, lol. Or did it run long
Yankee/Red Sox games are always long. Minimum 3.5 hrs lol
The game started at 8:15 though (first pitch)
LOL. Guess i should lay off the crack and booze before i go to work. (watch out, i work in aircraft maintenance)
Was it tied at 4 at some point?
As long as you don't fall asleep, I think we'll be ok. Lmfao!
Yeah, the game was tied at 4 for about an inning.
No chance of sleeping after all the coke/coffee (i was kidding about the booze, drinking is nasty, lol)
Must have been early in game cause thats when i saw the score last....
Mr. Flaming throwing Chapman is heading to the DL. Uh oh Nightangel
BTW, hows Renteria working out for you guys over there? I kind of miss him considering Tejada has been playing like crap (both offensively and defensively)
DL?? I thought he was just getting sent down to AAA. Either way i think this will be good for him. He needs to get his head right.
Renteria been getting lots of playing time lately with Rolen and Janish out, though Rolen just came back. He's only hitting 254 but has been stellar defensively. All in all a very worthy cog. (hitting better than that damn gomes)He was series mvp last year wasn't he?
I read today he had soreness/stiffness in his throwing shoulder.
Yeah thats one thing I miss most about Edgar.. he is a defensive wiz. Compared to Tejada who damn near has more errors himself than the other 3 infielders combined (Miguel has 6 I believe.. and were not even a quarter of the way through the season -_-). Yeah, he was series MVP, so we tossed him another mill for 1 year. He didn't like it and thought it was "disrespect," which IMO is ridiculous. You're way past your prime buddy. 1 million for 1 year is very reasonable. But he thought otherwise, and jetted. They're talking about benching Tejada, and playing DeRosa and Fontenot at 3rd and SS. And when Kung Fu Panda Sandoval comes back, all 3 of those guys I'd assume would be fighting for that starting SS spot.
Well hopefully the competition does them some good. Yall are back in first also right? By a game and a half or something just like my reds?
And now i wonder what Renteria is making here, will have to look that up now. I love the fact that he's a vet and barely removed from a ring but lets not get a big head or anything. While he does have a career average of 290ish hes only hitting 250 and is def past his prime. Nothing against him still though. I'll take his defensive till janish is back
Nah we lost to the Rockies today. Back to .5 now. .. Timmy was on the mound today too. But his control was all over the place.
Lincecum (sp?) is a beast. How's he doing this year
Get em Rays I don't know what was more likely to happen last night....Burnett throwing a heater to the net behind the catcher and ump or him hanging curveballs over the plate....lol
Could say the same about Price and his lack of command of all his pitches last night. If you knew any real thing about Burnett or baseball, he doesn't leave hanging curveballs over the plate - his curveballs are in the dirt, his sliders are over the plate.
True Price had horrible control last night and that never bodes well with a lineup as powerful as yours and i was talking about his breaking balls last night not in general.....asking me to comment on your rotation is the same as me asking you about mine which i'd be enlightened if you could tell me repetitive locations of my starting rotation........but hey i know nothing of baseball so maybe you can.....(without the internet and scouting reports of course)
Before last night's game, he was awesome.
Looks like were about to get swept by the Rockies. Damn you Sanchez! Why did you have to throw that bunt into right field!!!
The Braves are my team, mainly because my cousin (Jason Heyward) plays for them. I don't even have a second favorite.
