In part, you can thank performances like Jon Lester giving up 10 runs in the 1st inning for that. That was very difficult to watch.

Yeah....the Central has been pretty weak this year. Realistically they should be 10 or 12 games ahead. The fact they are within striking distance for the Cards and Cubs....two teams that are VERY capable of going on a tear due to the Cubs being stacked and the Cards having the history and pride not to suck.....I wouldn't feel too safe with that lead.

But...then again....maybe the Brew can do it this year. what's that saying about a squirrel and a nut?  :biggrin:   ;)

Makes me sad that Pirates management sucks, if they could have put a half decent team on the field, they actually might have had a shot at the division this year. I didn't expect it to be so weak.

It went from a very competitive division to pretty meh very quickly.

No question, I really thought it would look different at this point in the season.

Anyone else watching the All Star Game? I love it and try and watch it every year. Reminds me of being a kid. I watched the highlights on the 1977 game on MLB Network this afternoon. I loved all of those players as a kid.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related

I've pretty much given up hope on them doing anything of significance with ownership/management as it is. Their methods briefly resulted in a competitive team, but it will never be consistent without actually spending some money.

Agreed, but the reason they aren't out of it is because their division happens to be terrible, they aren't a very good team.

Yup. Their attendance is set to drop significantly for the second season in a row, maybe that will send a message? Ah, who are we kidding, probably not...

It'll be a good move that will come into play next season. I'm afraid that this year is a lost cause. The starting pitching era is a full 2 points above last season, and the batting averages are down at almost every spot. Things could turn around, and it's a weak division, but if it's going to happen then it needs to happen quickly.

I think the Brewers magic has worn off.  still impressed they've hung on for this long considering they are in year two of a complete rebuild.

Rich Hill  :facepalm:


Ironically, last night, the Sox' Doug Fister gives up a leadoff home run, then proceeds to no hit the Indians the rest of the way.

I definitely feel for Hill. First he loses the perfect game on an error, and then loses the no hitter in the 10th since his offense couldn't get anything done. And I'm a Pirates fan!

Crazy! What are the odds of that happening right after what Hill did? Their games are palindromes of each other  :lol

So the Sox are throwing Doug Fister. We go to one game a year and we get Doug f'n Fister?? Actually, he's been their best pitcher the last two times through the rotation.

No talk about the Indians winning 14 straight?  It's about time this team came together.  Jose Ramirez has been solid all season, and Corey Kluber has been lights out since returning from his injury earlier this year.  If they stay healthy through the postseason, I can easily see them taking care of the championship they should have won last year.

My World Series prediction before the season was Dodgers vs Indians.  I still feel pretty confident saying that.

The Dodgers were on their way to set a record for number of wins for a season, now they have lost 7 straight and 12 out of 13.  WTF???  S.I. put them on the cover and their losing streaks started.

Brewers sweep Cubs at Wrigley.  I put them out to pasture a few weeks ago but the Central is wide open now.  Cards are tied with the Brewers 2 games back.  The three teams play each other a lot over the next couple of weeks.
