This will end up a no hitter.
looks like you were right.

Giants have holes in their bats. They can't hit anything and that one walk could've very well been an out. Giants deserve this. You can't continue to ignore bringing in offense. They have a pathetic lineup.

I heard the Giants might go after Alex Rios. He might help.

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.

This is what has happened. The wheels are off on Miller and Lynn, and Westbrook continues to suck. Cards have hit the skids, and when they finish losing to the Angels tonight, will only be 16 games over .500.

Well when you win 2 World Series Championships in what, 3 years? It kind of gets overlooked when a team barely treads .500.
Scutaro, Posey and Pence have been very solid this year.
Rest are meh, or tanking hard. Sandoval and Crawford are tanking hardcore after decent starts.
Before Lincecum tanked it, I was thinking they should've traded Bumgarner for some offensive help. Now their pitching is meh and they need him drastically.

Without Guillen getting busted for Roids Cody Ross doesn't see the field during that WS run. They've ignored offense for a while in hopes their pitching could save them. Now their pitching stinks added in a anemic offense and you get the worst team in baseball over the last month.

Going back to Torres is laughable. Glaring need in left field and they didnt seem to care. Now they have to swim in the filth that is below mediocrity.

Max Scherzer goes to 13-0 on the season with a 6-2 win over the Blue Jays.

13-0 with an ERA of 3.09 and 139 Ks in 116.2 innings pitched and WHIP of 0.92.

Opponents are batting .196 against him on the season.

The last couple of seasons, Max has really started to develop into a stud workhorse.

Max Scherzer is the first pitcher to begin the season with 13 wins and no losses since Roger Clemens won his first 14 decisions for the Boston Red Sox in 1986.

ARLINGTON, Texas -- The Texas Rangers took what general manager Jon Daniels called a "flier" on Wednesday, agreeing to terms on a minor-league deal with outfielder Manny Ramirez, who said he will donate his salary to charity.

"[My salary] is the minimum wage, but for me it's too much money," Ramirez told ESPNDeportes.com's Enrique Rojas.

Ramirez, 41, was assigned to Triple-A Round Rock and will report there on Thursday. He will work out with Round Rock before he plays in a game.

"I feel blessed spiritually; I have no words to describe how happy I am," Ramirez said.

Hanley Ramirez is just filthy good when healthy. He is batting .500 (27 for 54) with six HRs, four 2Bs, 16 RBI, 13 Rs scored during his 14-game hitting streak.

Kemp finally goes yard again! I know it is in Colorado, but I'll take it.

CC Sabathia got his 200th career win tonight.

Sabathia turns 33 later this month.

What are your odds for him reaching 300 career wins?

He's been durable enough to give himself a chance, but I see CC ending up with 270 to 280 wins for his career.

Scherzer is a very good pitcher, but that 13-0 is largely aided by the fact that he has the best run support in the AL. Regardless, probably top 3 in the AL.

Yep, Kershaw has a 1.93 ERA, 126 Ks, 130.1 innings and a .93 whip. His record 7-5. That is partly because he struggled some after his 132 pitch game though.

I don't disagree with any of that.

Kershaw gets run support of only 3.28 per game. Scherzer gets the most in MLB at 6.29.

That is just unreal. Hopefully now that LA is getting healthy that will change.

Basically, not very likely.
He will probably end up around 270, which is still pretty awesome.

Also, wins for a pitcher have finally begun to have a lot less effect on the true pitching ability by pitchers.
In the end, wins is one of the most meaningless stats for a pitcher. It was a truly historic win when Felix Hernandez won the CY going 13-12.

If Felix Hernandez played on a team that would get him more than 2 to 3 runs when he gets a win, he would have more wins since entering the MLB than any other pitcher by a mile. If you want to talk about ND's, L's and pitching performance not being adequately represented in the W-L column, look no further than him. Seriously.

Felix has 106 career wins, he'd probably have at least 150 career wins if he pitched for a team like the Yankees during that same time frame.

TheChamp24 do you still think the Dodgers doesn't need another pitcher? Cap just sucks, and he only gets worse the second half of the seasons. I like his heart and his fire that he has, but he isn't what LA needs. With his performance today probably means LA will give up prospects for Ricky Nolasco now. Lame.

The Dodgers aren't a serious contender, and given how much money they've dished out, and the need to keep their top prospects, they should stand pat.
They should try to be sellers of some guys to clear dead weight, and maybe get some depth in the organization while they are at it.
Either Ethier or Crawford needs to go, Beckett is another guy but doubtful he is moved, Lilly if he gets healthy, why they picked up Marmol and his $10mil salary I don't know. The Red Sox trade I still think was a bad move for them, well actually I don't know how much the Sox are paying for Crawford and Beckett. But paying $20 mil a year for the next 4 years for Crawford is ridiculous. Beckett at least only has 1 more year on his contract.
I mean, if you can move say Lilly and Crawford for some decent pitching prospects, do it.
Dodgers just need to groom their pitching and tie up some positions on the field and they will be a great club.

^You are crazy if you think LA can't contend when healthy. Crawford isn't going anywhere. That is why they have been batting Puig in the 2 spot, so he can get used to batting there. Crawford, Puig, Gonzo, Ramirez, Kemp/Ethier is a dangerous lineup against any team. Maybe you should just look at what the team has been doing over the last bit of the season.

Even if Kemp got hurt this game it doesn't change much IMO.
