I love the haul the Indians got for Trevor Bauer yesterday.

https://www.mlb.com/news/trevor-bauer-trade-reds

Puig is a solid rental and Reyes is under team control for 3 more years.  Indians did a heck of a job in lengthening their window of contention.

Not sure how I feel about this.  I have a bet with a guy at work that Puig will hit more homers this season than Bryce Harper.  In part, I made that bet based on Puig playing in Cincinnati, but I'm concerned about his playing time and also whether Jacob's Field is is as conducive to homers as is the Reds' stadium.  So far, Puig is up 22-18, but it'd suck of this trade causes Puig to have a less than stellar last third of the season.

The Jake is a hitter's park.  Not quite the bandbox that Great American Ballpark is, but it's still hitter friendly.  Puig should do well there.  Remember, Albert Belle and Manny Ramirez used to mash there back in the day.

Dodgers needed relief pitching and got mostly infielders.  Wow.  I understand not wanting to give up big names or good prospects, but come on man, that's weak.  So much for a world series win this year. We'll be lucky to even get there.

As a Reds STH, I'm not that happy with this on the surface. Granted, the Reds are trying to extend Woods, and with Bauer, Castillo, and Gray in the rotation next year that staff will be pretty damn formidable. But Puig fell in nicely here with the city, and in the clubhouse. My son was at the game last night, and when the brawl broke out and he stood up for his teammates, he said several Pirates players were yelling at him to calm down as he'd just been traded. Puig yelled back, "I don't give a fuck. Today, I'm a Cincinnati Red, and I wear this uniform and this is my team. Fuck you!"

 Gotta love that attitude. Hate to see him go. 

But he was going to be a rental anyway.

Besides, the Reds tried to make a play for Bauer last winter, but the Indians wanted 2 of our top 3 prospects at the time.

I'm sure Bauers passion will play here well too.

Some guy got on the Petros & Money Show yesterday and blasted the Dodgers for being so unwilling to trade prospects.  He said something like, "Great!  The Dodgers will once again win the World Series of prospects!"

That's a misguided point of view.  In 2017, we traded Willie Calhoun (who was talked about the same way as Alex Verdugo) as part of the package to get Yu Darvish.  While that trade obviously didn't work out in the end, it was a universally hailed move at the time it was made.

From what I heard, the Dodgers were willing to trade Ruiz (the catching prospect) but weren't willing to trade Gavin Lux (SS) or Dustin May (P).  I'm ok with that, mostly because there was no big name that changed teams.  Trevor Bauer and Zack Grienke being the two biggest names, and I wouldn't have wanted either of them.  Do we need relief help?  Yeah, but we did get a reliever (Adam Kolarek).  I've never heard of him, but who knows.  And it's not like the Pirates traded Vasquez to someone else.

I don't see anyone in the NL challenging the Dodgers this year.  The Brewers could, but they're down from last year.  The Astros and Yankees are the class of the AL, so this reminds me of 2017, and I think if the 2019 Dodgers had played in the 2017 WS, they win.  Hope springs eternal.


But Puig fell in nicely here with the city, and in the clubhouse.

Sounds about right.  He had a real nice tweet to the people of Cincinnati and his teammates yesterday.  I would not have been at all sad if he had stayed in LA.

What is everyone's opinion on bench clearing brawls in Baseball?


I just don't understand what they were trying to achieve with any part of the song, either individually or as a whole. You know what? It's the Platypus of Dream Theater songs. That bill doesn't go with that tail, or that strange little furry body, or those webbed feet, and oh god why does it have venomous spurs!? And then you find out it lays eggs too. The difference is that the Platypus is somehow functional despite being a crazy mishmash or leftover animal pieces

Largely pointless.  I don't remember where I saw it, but I saw a stat that said the Pirates have the most bench clearing incidents since 2015 or something like that.  The Indians had the fewest.  Speaking of the Pirates, that was the second bench clearing incident between them and the Reds this year.

I won't say I don't occasionally find them interesting, but my position for a while has been as follows:

1. Charge the mound (as a batter) or leave the mound (as a pitcher) for the purpose of fighting and you get automatically and immediately suspended and fined.
2. Leave your defensive position for the purpose of becoming involved in a brawl and get automatically and immediately suspended and fined.
3. Leave the dugout or bullpen for the purpose of becoming involved in a brawl and get automatically and immediately suspended and fined.

Can't field a team tomorrow because your whole active roster got suspended?  Too bad.  These "brawls" where everyone feels some sort of compulsion to jog in from the bullpen, etc. are an utter waste of time.  If the pitcher and batter want to duke it out, let 'em.

Several times the Dodgers defense saved Jansen's ass.  Several times he was a base hit or HR away from a blown save.  Yes a win is a win, but I doubt they will get that lucky against a playoff team.  But then they could come in and blow dudes away.  That's the problem.  You never know what the pen's gonna do each game.

A couple months ago, a guy at my office brought in a box from his garage with a bunch of old (70s to 80s) baseball cards.  Nothing apparently special, but earlier this week, he dug through it and found an unopened pack of Topps 1975 cards.  I did some googling and found that he probably could sell it for maybe $50 but that some cards in the 1975 set were worth a lot of money (in particular, George Brett and Robin Yount rookie cards), so someone else here was saying that he should open it.

Today, they came into my office and said that, if I agreed to eat the gum, I could open it.  Mind you that I wasn't advocating either way.  Nevertheless, I agreed.  The card with the most apparent value is the Cubs team card.  The gum was about what you'd expect.  It had already broken into several pieces, and it was a lot like chewing chalk.  After about a minute, I spit it out in the trash can and was left with a slightly dirty feel in my mouth until I had lunch.

Just in case y'all were wondering what 44 year old baseball card pack gum tastes like!

I went to Cincinnati to see the Cubs play today. It's been a long time since I've been to a pro sporting event of any kind, and I had a great time. Kris Bryant hit a 3 run homer in the later inning to put the Cubs into the lead. Seeing a player with that sweet of a stroke hit a long ball on tv is one thing, but seeing it in person is on a whole different level.

That was a great weekend from the Indians.  Went into Minnesota 2 games down and took 3 of 4 to end the weekend tied for first in the AL Central.  Twins had an 11.5 game lead on June 3rd, and the Indians have won 47 of 59 games in that time span, with their number 1 and number 1.A starters sidelined for all of that run.  Shane Bieber and Mike Clevinger have stepped up in a big way, and Zack Plesac and Aaron Civale look like the latest gems in the current run of Indians' starting pitching.  The stretch run is going to be sweet!

Not a fan of brawls.  Big waste of time I agree.

After getting blown out their last two games, the Marlins beat Dodgers 13-7.  That's a David v. Goliath style win.

Today I learned of some unwritten rules in baseball.

During the Twins game in the 9th inning, they were leading 13-5. Jake Cave was up to bat and the count was 3-0. Pitch is thrown and he swings at it, gets a hit and gets a single. Commentators started talking about how Cave needed to apologize to the pitcher for swinging on a 3-0 pitch. He hit his chest towards the pitcher to apologize.

Max Kepler is up next, he gets a 2-0 count, pitch is thrown and he gets beaned with a fastball. Commentary states that it was retaliation for the 3-0 swing.

How stupid. Because the pitcher can't throw a strike, the batter needs to hold back and not swing to get on base. I googled other unwritten rules and one of them is that if you get hit by a pitch, you shouldn't rub the spot you got hit because it's an insult to the pitcher.  :huh:

. . .

How stupid.

That pretty much sums up my opinion about most, if not all, of the so-called "unwritten rules" of baseball.  It's one thing, with a big lead late in the game and you've got a guy on first and the batter hits a double, for the third base coach to hold the runner at third and not try and score him.  But there's reason for a batter to give the pitcher a gimme strike.  And to plunk a DIFFERENT batter in retaliation is even worse (especially in the AL where the pitchers only play half of the game and won't face reprisal themselves).  The other one that's supremely dumb is not trying to break up a no-hitter by bunting (especially if it's a close game).

Went to Petco Park on Wednesday. What a beautiful facility. Just drives home what a fucking dump Fenway is.

My only complaint is that Petco needs escalators. You have to walk a mile to go up or down a level. Elevators not withstanding..

Is it simply an age issue as far as your enjoyment of the park vs. Fenway?

The reason that I ask is because I've been in a few "modern" stadiums (Jacobs Field (Indians), Great American (Reds) and Hines Field (Steelers)), and I'd know/expect them to be better than some of the older places that I've visited in the past (Municipal (Indians old stadium) and Riverfront (Reds/Bengals old stadium)). However, I'm going to be making my first visit to Wrigley Field next month in Chicago to see the Cubs and Cardinals play. I don't expect Wrigley to have some of the modern amenities that the newer places have, but considering the history of the place I'm really pumped up about finally making my first visit to the place. I'd almost expect Fenway to hold that same kind of reverence to a Red Sox fan.

Well, I've never been, but you should be excited to go to Wrigley, and Fenway for that matter.

There's nothing like coming up the tunnel and seeing the Fenway field for the first time. Iconic for sure.

At Petco, all of the seats are angled towards the infield. At Fenway, the seats are angled whatever way the row is facing. Down the right field foul line, your seats are literally angled towards the outfield!

I like the nice open air feel of the new stadiums. At Fenway, you literally feel like you're in a tunnel moving around the ballpark.


Current ownership has actually done as well of a job as they can trying to create a much better atmosphere though. There are some open spaces in the upper deck down the right field line.

I just looked at the standings for the first time in a long time.

Dodgers with an 18.5 game lead -- and that's after dropping 2 of 3 to the Braves.  I hope whoever wins the central can at least take the Braves to 5 games int he NLDS.

Dodgers are on pace for a +270 run differential, which would be the greatest differential since at least 2003.

The Rays are 21 "games above .500" but still 9.5 games behind the Yankees (it feels like this has happened to them multiple times over the last decade or so).

The NL Central and the NL wild card are going to be messy down to the last day.

The Twins and Indians battle in the AL Central looks like it'll be a fun one.

It's SOOOOO bad. Just mediocre at best baseball. Were the Cubs, Brewers or Cards really any good at all they could have ran away with the division two months ago. It really does not matter. None of those (3) teams has a chance in  :censored of winning a series....they're that bad. It's not even fun to watch.

I wouldn't say that. Any team can get hot at the right time, and become unstoppable. The chances probably aren't that great, though. I do agree with you guys that the division looks bad, though.

And in other news, the Dodgers beat the Blue Jays yesterday.  The score was the same as that of Super Bowl 3.

At one point, the Dodgers' organist was playing Subdivisions by Rush.  He's VERY aware of what's going on in the park and on the TV broadcast, and it made me wonder if Geddy Lee was in the house (or if he just played it because Toronto was the opponent).


NL MVP Watch:

Bellinger:  .320 BA (6th), 42 HR (1st), 100 RBI (tied for 2nd), 1.091 OPS (2nd)

Yelich:  .333 (1st), 41 (2nd), 89 (9th), 1.117 (1st)

Alonso:  .271 (<30th), 40 (3rd), 97 (6th), .997 (5th)

Rendon:  .322 (5th), 27 (tied for 19th), 98 (tied for 4th), 1.007 (3rd)


Is anyone other than Trout being talked about for AL MVP (even though his team is likely to miss the playoffs for the eighth time in his nine seasons)?

I'm so confident that the Cardinals have zero chance of making any type of noise that I told my buddy that if the Cardinals made it to the NLCS I'd eat a piece of dried dog poo. It's the safest bet I've ever made.

Same goes with the hideous black ones.  I tuned in for two pitches the past two nights, and just couldn't take it.

You nailed it. It took me several innings of the first Cubs game to figure out what Lester's nickname was, and he's pitching! The camera is on his back the most!
