    And forgive me here Pugs, but the Cubs lead the Pirates 6-0 in the bottom of the 1st.

    I am hoping that Jose Martinez is dealt at the trade deadline. I am tired of his antics and his defense. As I’ve stated before, if he was hitting .340 with 25 hrs he would be easier to tolerate.

    FYI here,
    Will Smith blew his 1st save last night in Milwaukee. Mention that he might be traded to the Cardinals and all of a sudden he does bad. Must be something in the air.

    Speaking of Will Smith and a possible trade, he blew his 1st save last night in Milwaukee. He was 23/23 but now he’s 23/24. Gave up a leadoff triple in the bottom of the 9th to Yelich and he eventually scored to tie the game.

    And whats the odds that the Cardinals score at least three runs today?

    4-1 Arizona now on a Marte 2-run dinger off of Gant.

    Cards with 1 run and 2 hits through 7 innings. Same old team. Back to under .500.

    Pugs,
    I forgot about the banana cream pie I got at the amish restaurant yesterday. I’ll have a big piece of it for dessert.

    And sorry to report the Cubs plate a run in the bottom of the 8th to take a 4-3 lead on the Pirates heading to the 9th. But, on the flip side, that means Kimbrel is probably coming in so this could get interesting.

    r/Esteemed Rat

    EDIT: Kimbrel gets the save and the Cubs hang on 4-3. Sorry Pugs, no more Cubs updates today.

    Cubs now a 3-0 lead on the Pirates in the top of the 8th. Both Archer and Darvish were on their games today.

    I am going to water my landscaping after while and then make me a couple of cheeseburgers on the grill just before game time. Have some bar-b-q chips with the cheeseburgers as well, and a Mt. Dew. Then a cigar to cap it all off. I am sure Whitey Herdog will want a bite or two of the cheeseburgers.

    r/Esteemed Rat

    EDIT: Starling Marte a 3-run homer in the top of the 8th to tie the game 3-3.

    Cubs a 1-0 lead in the 7th over Pittsburgh. Bryant a homer in the bottom of the 7th to break the scoreless tie. Cubs now threatening to score more.

    I don’t know what the lineup is going to be tonight. But if Carpenter and Goldschmidt are in the lineup – and I assume they will be – I hope they don’t strikeout their first time at bat tonight.

    A sweep to start the 2nd half would sure be a good thing. Arizona is no slouch as they are still in the middle of the wild card race.

    Bader needs to sit. He’s hitting what, .205? At this point O’Neill, Fowler, and Martinez with Harry being a late inning replacement.

    By the way, do you know what Bader’s butler called him when he was growing up?

    On the lunch menu today is a center cut rib chop in the Air Fryer. Some mashed potatoes, gravy, bar-b-q chips, a piece of chocolate cake and a Klondike ice cream bar along with some 7-Up.

    Hoping Fletcher finally gives us a good outing so we don’t lose another game going into the ASB. And just remember, this will be our last game in San Francisco where Bruce Bochy will be managing the Giants.

    Pugs,
    I’ve been trying to post but I keep getting that error message that I cant post at this time. Not sure if this will make it through or not.

    And speaking of The Streets Of San Francisco, I always notice the “Ghiradeli’s” sign down in the LF corner in San Francisco. Always reminds me of Karl Malden and Michael Douglas.

    Bullpens: Is ‘Oracle’ (formerly AT&T) now the only park in the majors that does not have enclosed bullpens. The old story that the architects ‘forgot’ to incorporate bull pens doesn’t really hold water. Surely if Wrigley can create enclosed pens the Giants can match them.

    MM3,
    I believe the Giants are going to eliminate triples alley next year and put their bullpens out there. They will have a two-tiered bullpen like some stadiums have.

    I hope they don’t myself. I like to watch games in SF because of its nuances.

    Looking forward to the game tonight. Wish I could tune in to the Giants announcers, Kuiper and Krukow, they are really good. But, of course, the Giants broadcast will be blacked out. Either way, we SHOULD win two of three this weekend in SF.

    And for lunch I had a center cut pork rib chop in the Air Fryer, a couple of ears of corn-on-the-cob, mashed potatoes/gravy, a piece of banana cream pie from the Amish restaurant, a Klondike ice cream bar, and some 7-Up. Tonight for my late night snack it will probably be baloney and another piece of banana cream pie and a cigar or two during the game.

    The Dubois County Bombers and Hoptown squad played historically bad tonight. At last count the radio announcer said the error totals had reached 17. Yep, you read that right, 17 errors committed.

    Plus the future Missus Rat failed to materialize. Although there was a hot tall redhead a few rows in front of me.

    Pugs,

    I am about to leave for the Dubois County Bombers game tonight. I’ll keep checking the iPhone for the score.

    And the Reds down the Brewers 1-0. But the Cubs lead the Pirates 7-3 currently.

    Two observances from last night in regards to the Cubs.

    First, it was obvious Kimbrel didn’t have the same “Stuff” that he had in Boston. He might come around but last night wasn’t very good.

    Second, on the Cubs Post Game Show the one announcer – not Pena, the bald guy – was really honked at the Cubs. He talked about their players only meeting, Maddon’s meeting, playing smarter as a result of their meetings, and how the loss to Pittsburgh last night was bad. He even used the term “Freaking Pi$$ed” in reference to Maddon on the show.

    And now Epstein says there could be some BIG changes coming?

    Might there be some internal problems with the Cubs?

    The Pirates got two in the last of the 9th and beat the Cubs 6-5. Contreras, playing RF, went from the hero in the 8th when he threw out a runner at the plate to the goat in the 9th when he couldn’t catch a flyball after a fairly long run. Kimbrel a blown save.

    Also, Russell tried to throw out a runner at home on a grounder when he should have taken the out at first.

    Is there any doubt that Mike Leake will shut us down? We might see a no-hitter tonight as poor as the Cardinal hitters are.

    But we did catch a break last night. The Pirates down the Cubs 5-1 and the Reds beat the Brewers 5-4 in 11 innings. The Reds won on a little league play by the Brewers in the last of the 11th.

    Its time for this hot prospect of ours to step up and start performing. I’ll be tuning in after my late supper of hamburgers on the grill, corn on the cob, mashed potatoes/gravy, Mt. Dew, and a cigar. Maybe two cigars to keep me awake during the late innings.
