So far Goldys the only one that can hit the ball. Hope Arrenado starts doing something soon. Maybe need to scatter in some bunting to move some if these guys over. Hate to see those lob’s when we get someone on.July 21, 2021 at 8:02 pm #167279jj-cf-stlParticipantPaid - Annual
That’s good rundown fundamentals by Arenado. He ran at the runner BEFORE receiving the ball.July 21, 2021 at 8:10 pm #167280blingboyParticipantPaid - Annual
Bader tried to be the hero but instead is the goat.July 21, 2021 at 8:10 pm #167281
Yep jj that was nice. Baders had a great catch and a sure single that didn’t quite make it to a double. Hes definitely not asleep out there.July 21, 2021 at 8:11 pm #167282

Bader would’ve been on 2nd with the sac bunt coming next. Oh well.July 21, 2021 at 8:22 pm #167284
Arrenado with a smooth single! Lets move him over!July 21, 2021 at 8:23 pm #167285
Pffft- whats with the sky balls?July 21, 2021 at 8:35 pm #167286
Wainos curve is awesome, wish we had more guys that can do thatJuly 21, 2021 at 8:47 pm #167287
Well maybe the thought should have been maybe have bader steal second, then waino can drive in a run.. I guess stealing just is a lost art.July 21, 2021 at 8:51 pm #167288
That was a horrible call, bring on the machines. I’m tired of either incompetent or cheating umpires. A ball three inches off the plate being called a strike.July 21, 2021 at 8:54 pm #167289
Agree Willie. That pitch was clearly wide.July 21, 2021 at 8:54 pm #167290
Well good for shildt. The only better thing would have been if shildt would have decked him. The ball wasn’t close.July 21, 2021 at 8:59 pm #167291
Great play by arenado.July 21, 2021 at 9:00 pm #167292
Is “Scrabble” still pitching somewhere?
Excellent thinking, Pugs. I hope Mo is tuning in. Scrabble last pitched in May/June of this year in the Americas Qualifying Event, helping propel the US National Team into the Tokyo Olympics. So obviously, he’s still got it.
Perhaps “Eyechart” would’ve been a better nickname for Scrabble. Reminds me of another Polish MLBer named Gwosdz, who was nicknamed Eyechart.
Zdsowg is Gwosdz spelled backwards, which I think is actually a better looking name.July 21, 2021 at 9:02 pm #167293
Hard for both teams to score tonight! Arrenado doing great on defense. First one to 2 runs wins!July 21, 2021 at 9:10 pm #167294
O’Neill’s plate discipline has improved significantly this season.July 21, 2021 at 9:11 pm #167295

I don’t get it when people say they like the human element provided by umpires calling balls/strikes, but they are certainly entitled to that opinion. Plate umps are inconsistent and often wrong. What people are actually saying is they also are willing to tolerate a lot of human incompetence that has a huge impact on the game. Nobody ever says I’ve got to go to the game tonight because Joe Schmoe is behind the plate and that guy always gives a must-see performance.
Frank Drebin is the only guy I’d pay money to watch make a fool of himself behind the plate, and unfortunately he is dead.July 21, 2021 at 9:13 pm #167296LACardFanParticipantFree

The umpires’ have not.July 21, 2021 at 9:13 pm #167297
Well everybody just waiting for a big fly. Had oneil on, perfect time for a steal, maybe a hit n run.July 21, 2021 at 9:19 pm #167298
Another great play by Arenado!July 21, 2021 at 9:20 pm #167299
Euro dandy, I used to be one of those old fashioned guys but not anymore. If the commissioner really was concerned about the state of the game and lack of offense, he would tell these umpires Everytime they call a strike on a ball totally off the plate, that’s one game check they lose. I do want the machines but I want the balls and strikes to be seen by all not just known by umpire cause I don’t trust them to do the right thing.July 21, 2021 at 9:21 pm #167300
Yeah Willie. I don’t want to see machine umpires myself.How we gonna see managers get thrown out. Besides Euro then you’re gonna have to deal with the umpires union!July 21, 2021 at 9:23 pm #167301
Wooster, point us to their leader and one of our guys will make him an offer he can’t refuse.July 21, 2021 at 9:29 pm #167303
The bunt turns out to be a big waste.
