Kimbrel's last five appearances: Three blown saves and a fourth where he had to be removed before he blew the lead. The guy is toast.

There’s nothing on earth that elicits collective empathy - at least among males - like a guy getting hit hard in the junk. We can look away at war, poverty, and injustice, hate others for their beliefs or origins or skin colors, but a man getting hit in the dick, is always just a man getting hit in the dick.
There are limits. If Manny smoked a ball to short that took a bad hop and hit Jeter square in the nuts, I would still be laughing about it today.

I will always appreciate what the Astros did in 2015 (play in game) and 2017, 2019 and 2022 (ALCS) to stop the barbarians at the gate.

But this, this is just abysmal now.

Not often you see a guy with 1 hit and 5 rbi without hitting a home run – Manuel Margot has a bases-loaded double, a run-scoring groundout and a run-scoring error/ground ball.

Just wait until MFY, Rangers, Knicks, & Jets all win their respective championships this current postseason and this next upcoming postseason. :mad::mad::mad::mad:

I was next door last night at an outdoor Social Distortion concert. When we first got the tickets a few months ago, we were considering staying overnight and seeing the Pirates today, but with it being Mother's Day weekend and other things going on, we decided it didn't make sense. There was enough rain to cause a delay last night, but fortunately, we were in a restaurant for most of it and the rain had completely stopped by the time the concert started. This would be a cool game to see though, despite it turning cold and rainy the past couple of days.

Got to 0-2 on Bellinger, then walked him.

What's pitch count today?

EDIT: long F-8 to end inning.

Sorry, I realized that after I posted.

He was way out of the zone on his balls, but given his good command in AAA I wonder how much he might benefit if he gets a bigger zone than he's used to.
I watched one of the AAA games with the roboumps and, to me, it looked like a bigger zone than I was used to seeing. Balls above the belt being called strikes.

Love to see it. Gets into a bases-loaded no-outs jam and gets out of it unscathed.

Andres Gimenez fouled a ball off his foot and was down on the ground for a few minutes. Then he got back up and hit the next pitch into the right field bleachers. I guess he didn't want to run on the sore foot.
