Baseball 2018

Not sure how much use this thread will get but sometimes I feel like saying something that doesn’t fit in a thread or really isn’t worth starting a thread, now it maybe easy for fans stateside as you can turn to a friend, work colleague or family member and say something. If I turned to someone and said “how about those Marlins.” I’d get “girls game” “is he drunk” or . Also the nearest person who lives to me who likes baseball is 85 miles away, we used to meet up every couple of months at a baseball card shop and talk baseball sadly the shop closed down so we don’t meet as much.

Anyway reason I posted this thread, they may not win a ton of games but one thing this Marlins team as impressed me with is guts.

Oh, I do know the baseball kind of loneliness...

There was an unspoken pact I had with the apprentice that squatted in my office for three-plus years, that I would casually remark what bothered me in baseball, and she would speak what was on her mind in terms of whatever sport you can do on horseback. Over the years, you get a certain name recognition, I guess, be it Yoenis Cespedes or SŲnke Rothenberger. Or, heck, Nick Brown.

Well, we've both since fled that godforsaken office, so now I can only yell at the stuffed toy raccoon for baseball reasons anymore.

And I haven't seen the Marlins so far this year; on my third Mets game and I saw ... I already forgot who I saw on Friday.

Ok Iím watching the Twins @ Pirates and also watching Royals @ Tigers so not sure which game or commentator, anyway one of the players jams his hand into the bag sliding back to 1st. Now the sideline reporter, do they call them sideline reporters in baseball?

I digress the reporter said what his injury was but also said ďhe will not be returningĒ now like I say I was watching two games so he may have left the field after being out or end of the inning etc but just in case he left due to the injury he couldnít return could he? Iím pretty certain the answer is no but just wanted to be 100%.

Did the guy that said it, say the same thing over and over again? Maybe 4 times to make sure you understood what he said? If so you were watching the Tiger game.

Nah, it was the Pirates game. I watched that, and that happened.

And a player removed for another player is out of the game - period.

No think it was the other game, it teaches me not to watch 2 games at once, no idea how Elvis used to do it and he used to watch 3-4 football games didnít he.

I was pretty certain, I know thereís some sports that allow same player subs, basketball, football (NFL & college) and both rugby codes etc but not baseball.

Go figure, Padres Villanueva had 4 AB's in his only start of the season prior to tonight 0 hits, tonight he's got 3 HR's and a HBP.

For a second, I thought the Raccoons had sprung to life... Brewers up 2-1 in the ninth, and then... error, walk, error. Whoah. Rough.

For the first time ever Wheeler, Syndergaard, DeGrom, Harvey, and Matz had consecutive starts for the Mets. They went 5-0. How long has it taken for this to happen? 4 years.

Meanwhile in Toronto, the Blue Jays all wear #42 and the Royals don't. Neither team played on the 15th.

The #42 scam is bad enough in that I will never know any player that hasn't been a Met for a few decades, but at least make the teams match for crying out loud...

Oh sorry, my fault. If the team does not wear the #42 uniforms, they probably won't sell any, so less $$$. My fault, entirely mine.

I also remember a time when the Royals had vaguely successful pitching.

How quick three years pass.

Do you think there's a chance for this to happen again any time soon, Westheim? The lineup seems pretty bleak to me, at least at the moment.
