King Felix is getting hammered. He's given up a pair of home runs and the Angels have plated four with only one out in the 1st inning.

Kid just has not been the same since the injury.

Uh oh, A-Rod's done it again.

He yelled something at the Jays 3rd baseman as the ball was in the air, causing him to back off and the ball fell in for a hit. The Blue Jays were furious (the home plate umpire was caught on live television telling the Jays catcher to "shut the **** up and catch") and did plenty of chirping at A-Rod before the game was resumed.

I've never seen that happen in a game before (Willie Mays Hayes did it in Major League 2), but for all I know, it's something that happens all the time. I guess not, though, as the Blue Jays were livid about it.

Nahhhh, he's just toying with everyone. One rusty start, one good start, one great start, and then tonight. Just make sure you don't trade him for Chone Figgins, or whatever you got him for...heh.

His stuff looks great. He got behind to a hitter that owns him, with runners on. More power to HGH and Kotchman.

Weaver ain't lookin' to hot either.

Damn. Hernandez hadn't allowed a HR this season, he's allowed three tonight.

The matchup of young star pitchers never materialized tonight, as both have had their respective asses handed to them.

Well, all good things must come to an end. The Rockies 7 game winning streak is history.

Ah well, start a new one tomorrow, boys.

You sure as hell don't grow up doing that. Its bush league really, you just don't do that. I mean, heck, a 3B looking up for the ball has no idea if its ARod or his SS really.

I disagree. I think it's bush league that a third baseman can be scared off of a pop up by a guy yelling "ha" when he passes him.

Well, how do you know he just said ha? I think he screamed something other than that. No way a team will react like the Jays did if he just said "ha".

Gamesmanship is good for baseball. The players have too much respect for one another these days. If you don't like what ARod did, spike him high when you get a chance. Don't cry about it.

I was watching the game when it happened, they showed a shot of A-Rod as he was passing him. Unless A-Rod is a ventriloquist, all he said was "ha."

I'm sure there'll be retribution the next time these two teams get together. Hell, I'm surprised Gibbons didn't challenge A-Rod to a fight right there on the field. I guess he just reserves that for his own players.

Though, I don't know if the Jays really want to go down that road since the Yankees have Kyle Farnsworth hanging out in their bullpen.

The White Sox need a spark. Josh Fields is just what they need. Keep Crede at third, but get Fields' bat in the lineup. Give him a shot out in left. He's a good athlete being a former Oklahoma State QB.

Thank you. I'm so tired of cretins like Schilling babbling on about the rules of the game. Bring back the bench jockeys, too.

I think what ARod did was kinda minor. I think its funny how it happened personally, but also feel that a player shouldn't do that.
Some things I hold more personal, like not "running up the score". For instance, stealing a base when up by 7 in the late innings. Or standing at home plate, flipping your bat or whatever after a homerun. That really irritates me, seeing these guys after hitting one flipping their bats 15 feet and watching it for a couple seconds before starting to round the bases. Just go to first base for crying out loud.

The reason why hitters are showing up pitchers more and more these days is because today's laxed culture has allowed it to get out of hand.

As for the running up the score, mercy rules are for the weak. Baseball is the one sport where it doesn't matter how much you are down, you can always comeback.

I hate to side with the Jays here, but it was a bush league move by A-Rod (if indeed the accusation is true) It's called Professional baseball for a reason and he should act accordingly.

I just think running up the score is a show of weak sportsmanship. In baseball its really hard to define whats "running up the score" though. I remember in Little League, I was on a team that was killing this other team. I had a virtually free pass to 3rd and stole it. Then, a wild pitch, and my instinct was to score, so I took off and scored. I probably should've just stayed at second, but I was in game mode. Their coach even said to my coach "Come on coach, don't you guys have enough runs?" My coach simply replied "I'm not telling them what to do, they are doing it on instinct."

And I remember Ben Davis breaking up the no-no with that bunt single. Schilling and Brenly went beserk after that. I thought it was funny. Hey, the Padres needed baserunners, so why not try it?

I love Fantasy sports after dissing it for years. You learn alot about guys that might have slept from ESPN and such, but this thread is about baseball not what geek picked up who or what he is doing for you. Im not geeking it this year but have for the last 5 geeky years. Just make a FB thread to separate those who want to talk about baseball. Now, how about the Angels? Nothing like going to the Ducks game then off to the Angels game across the street by the 4th inning. Sorry TJ, but 3rd place might be your spot this year.

I remember that. Bob Brenly called it "chicken****" afterwards.
