Paul Goldschmidt - beast

that is all

oh and MLB has a hard on for the Dodgers, those fines (Hinke, Mattingly, Mcguire are a joke, Puiga, Kershaw)

If a guy punches another he gets a fine. But if you get sucker punched you get suspended 5 games.....right

So you're telling me that Justin 'Smoak' on the Water is not going to pan out?

He was supposed to be a 'can't miss' prospect....not a 'can't hit' prospect.

Wow I saw this live and it was very scary. I feel awful for Alex Cobb.

https://vine.co/v/hBK9l9XY6vn

I hope he's okay. They said that the comeback hit him at around 102 mph.

Prayers.

Cardinals win a slugfest in Miami, 13-7. Lance Lynn had a poor start but moved his record to 9-1 anyway. Carlos Beltran hit numbers 15 & 16. He's quietly having a very good season.


44-24

Yesterday Miami won in Jake Westbrook's first start after coming off the DL. Jake wasn't good, and the scored was 5-4.

Poor Cardinals taking a beatdown for the 2nd time in 3 days in Miami. Rookie Tyler Lyons with his 3rd consecutive bad start.

Yeah. Lyons is a total stopgap. They really don't want to keep last year's number 1 pick, Michael Wacha, up. He'd be better right now, but he's only 21, they don't want to start the clock, etc. I think they believe they can survive the occasional bad start. The problem is, innings are piling up on Wainwright, Lynn, and Miller. Lynn and Miller probably aren't quite ready for 200 inning loads. Westbrook was poor in his 1st start off the DL, and Jaime Garcia is a ways off from coming back. They will probably be looking for a vet at the deadline.

Dodgers down 3 to 5 bases loaded and Cruz a .132 hitter strikes out to end thing inning. Then Donnie dum dum replaces Cruz at third to start the very next inning. Why not pinch hit for him you worthless piece of ****!!!!

MINNEAPOLIS -- Doug Fister held Minnesota hitless until the sixth inning and Torii Hunter connected for his 300th career home run, leading the Detroit Tigers over the Twins 5-2 Sunday.

Hunter is making the Angels look bad by spending more money and getting a .216 hitter out of it. While I laugh at guys like Figgins and Lackey going for the big money and dying a slow death for their careers in Seattle and Boston, I am sure St. Louis and Arlington do the same for Pujols and Hamilton.

BTW, I knew when Seattle traded Fister to the Tigers that it would be a horrible mistake. Fister was one of those pitchers that never got run support but was a good pitcher. Tigers obviously knew that and went and got him.

I think everybody had a feeling Pujols signing was a drastic overspend, but who would've thought he would be this terrible really? I mean, could've predicted a dip in numbers, as his 2011 season indicated but damn, he's turned into an above average at best hitter. Far cry from the 3 time MVP he used to be.
Hamilton is so inconsistent, one month he could be a super MVP type, next month the worst hitter in the league. To spend money on him, is silly.

As for Hunter, his production has dipped tremendously since his April start, as I predicted.
He has been horrible in May and June

You're a regular Nostradamus....I'm sure everyone else figured he'd keep batting at a .370 clip for the entire season.

Yeah, look, in May these are his numbers:
.255 AVG, .313 OBP, .353 SLG
7 doubles, 1 homerun, 13 runs scored and 11 RBI's

June:
.200, .259 OBP, slugging below .300
2 doubles, 1 homerun, 4 runs scored, 4 RBI's

So keep on praising Hunter, but he has been terrible since April.

If pasting a snippet of information about him hitting his 300th career HR is praising him, then I'll keep praising him when he reaches a milestone....before that I hadn't mentioned him in a post since April 11th.

Not that it's the only factor in his decline, but to me it seems it might add some credence to the rumors that he is actually up to 3 years older than claimed.

Two years ago, with free agency approaching and hundreds of millions of dollars coming his way, he applied for citizenship. That review process is more thorough than a teenager applying for a visa (as when he first came to the country). It also carries consequences. He faced deportation with no ability to return for falsifying information on a citizenship application. All so he could vote, he risked all that money. Nobody is that crazy to take on that risk. No lawyer would let him.

After his dad died last year he went into the toilet. He wasn't a "can't miss" prospect -- he was never going to have an awesome batting average, but .250 to .275 with plus power potential was expected. He doesn't bat anywhere near .250 and hasn't shown his power at all in the MLB. Safeco isn't a hitters field, but it is a tragedy.

Ackley has reverted back to his crappy habits and can't formulate a sound swing and Montero got sent down with him to AAA -- they are doing fine there, but they have a long ways. Atleast Kyle Seager is legit and Nick Franklin have tools. Bringing up Zunino was a big mistake. I can only hope that the two guys they drafted 1 and 2 this year can be contributors. Sounds like they are "can't miss" bats as well, but who knows.

If all those guys panned out, we would have an All-Star infield. I look forward to us sending away our insane pitching talent to get another player who craps the bed.

The Tigers beat the Twins 5-1 as Max Scherzer is now off to a 10-0 start on the season.

Miggy with 3 hits, including his 19th HR on the season.

.358 on the season with 19 HRs and 71 RBIs in 68 games.

Wainwright gave up 4 runs in the 1st, and the Cardinals never recovered. Cubs win, 4-2.

45-26? Maybe. I've lost track.

Jake Westbrook pitched 7 two hit shutout innings in his 2nd game off the DL. Cardinals beat the cubs, 4-1. Mujica gets his 21st save in 21 opportunities.

Jhonny Peralta with a 2 run walk off HR in the bottom of the 9th to give the Tigers a 4-3 win over the Red Sox.

It's great to see your team win on a walk off HR....one of the most enjoyable moments in baseball.
