    April Game Thread

    Joe Musgrove of the Padres just threw the first no-hitter of the season, beating the Rangers 3-0. 0 hits, 0 walks, 0 errors, 1 hbp, 10 Ks. 112 pitches, 77 strikes. First no-hitter in Padres franchise history. Might not be the only time this terrible Rangers team gets no-hit this year.

    MLB free game of the day is blacked out. That happening to anyone else?

    Thanks for that reminder. I thought there was a subluxation issue from back then, but couldn’t remember who.

    Carson Smith had shoulder subluxation in 2018 (https://www.sportingnews.com/us/mlb/news/red-sox-carson-smith-surgery-shoulder-injured-throws-glove-dl-stats-mlb-news/y65jkj33ggrs145g9q2kbdl0u). He hasn't pitched in the big leagues since. Incredible Padres would sign Tatis to that contract with...

    4/6- 7:10 PM ET vs TB: One Good Turn

    Unp's been calling that inside pitch a strike all night. Doesn't make it right. Can't wait for the robot ump revolution.

    The Red Sox will be wearing yellow and blue uniforms on Patriots' Day weekend

    And yellow. When I pick my kid up from high school, 75% of the kids walking out of the school are wearing black. None are wearing yellow. My 12 year-old's reaction was "Yuck!" My 15 year-old's reaction was, "They're kind of cool. Look like the Brewers." My reaction is, "WTF??? Why are we using...

    So a rule meant to “speed up the game” — the three batter rule — is quite possibly responsible for games going into extra innings; that is, for making games go longer. F*ck Manfred and his stupid new rules.

    I’m ready! Will be listening to Joe on my WorkTunes headphones/earmuffs while my chainsaw buzzes.

    MLB Spring Training News and Notes 2021

    Begs the question, what path to the majors? Dobnak grew up outside Pittsburgh in South Park Township. Big Pirates fan. Graduated South Park HS in 2013 (his team, ranked 7th in PA that year, lost in the quarterfinals of the state tournament). Attended D2 Alderson Broaddus University in Phillippi...

    Spring Training 2021

    On the game broadcast today, Dave Flemming said Vasquez was hit in the face with a throw during practice yesterday. Shattered his sunglasses, several lacerations, needed some stitches. And he’s gone home to deal with a personal issue (sounds like unrelated to the injury). Flemming intimated Vaz...

    MLB Spring Training News and Notes 2021

    Nick Anderson, Eloy Jimenez, Kirby Yates, George Springer... that's a bunch of long-term injuries piling up at the end of ST. Feels like the Sox should bubble wrap the 26 and send them up to Boston for the start of the season before anybody gets hurt.

    Spring Training 2021

    I for one am excited for the start of the new season. I'll miss JBJ catching everything in center (the pitchers will, too) and getting on a hot streak, just like I missed Mookie last year. Players leave all the time. Few retire with the team they start with, or even become identified with (like...
