Sorry for no thread yesterday guys, early game on a getaway day for me made it tough.  Won’t let it slip again.

On to baseball…that three game winning streak was fun…let’s try it again.

    Detroit News passing on Buster Olney report that Inge and Damon are on waivers.

    Freep reporting that Weinhardt goes down to Toledo and Figaro comes back up.

      Isn’t everyone (well, everyone not named Justin or Miguel) on waivers this time of year?

        pretty much, yeah. Teams want to know who gets through and can be traded. I remember reading somewhere that most teams put nearly all of their 40-man roster on waivers (even the star players) and simply pull back anyone that gets claimed if they don’t want to lose them.

    Apparently there were Inge to St Louis rumors, then they went and signed Pedro Feliz instead (who is somewhat the same guy).

    Oh, and hey, I just noticed if you hit a bunch of singles you can still score runs that way; weird.

    how about this Rymes kid…he can play!

    Singles and bunts and singles and runs.

    Now it’s time for Cabrera to go long

    And is it just me or do we seem to get more guys thrown out at home this season than ever before?

      It’s not like we actually saw that many players cross home plate.

    Wow, I think Boesch is on pace to have worst second half by an AL regular EVER.
    Seriously, .128 has to be the worse ever for a starter.

    • Jud

      August 20, 2010 at 8:39 pm

      if he had a manager that knew how to handle young players (actually any playerds) this second half would not be happening like it is…..

      • Jud

        a good manager would have sat him down a few times and let him let the basball life catch up to him..instead Mumbles throws him in the 5 and 3 spots daily!….

          A good manager would have sent him to Toledo 6 weeks ago til he got his mojo back.

    how about Battlestar tonight …wow!

    • Coleman

      August 20, 2010 at 9:08 pm

      I didn’t want to jinx him or anything but the first 5 innings I was thinking he looked an awful lot like he did on one other infamous night…

    Laird catching him tonight and I wondered if he’d have a fit when Kelly didn’t catch that ball.

    the BOBS have a month load of hits and runs and RBI today!

    • Coleman

      August 20, 2010 at 9:22 pm

      If Inge-Kelly-Laird combine for at least 8 hits and you don’t win, you have a serious problem.

  10. Coleman

    August 20, 2010 at 9:20 pm

    Inge with a walk, single, double, triple–isn’t that some sort of poor man’s cycle?

  11. Coleman

    August 20, 2010 at 9:23 pm

    Since Inge is actually, lilterally, the player of the game, does that mean Kelly will get the vote?

    • Mark in Chicago

      August 20, 2010 at 9:28 pm

      Armando pitched 7 shutout innings, he should get POG. But Inge fans ARE persistent…

      • Coleman

        August 20, 2010 at 9:34 pm

        Normally I would agree, but since we could have won tonight with a Bonderman-meltdown performance, I would expect an offensive player to get the award.

    Tigers > Indians = Yankees > Tigers

    Jim Price says “Inge and Kelly have lead the way!” first time ever to be uttered by a human voice

    • Coleman

      August 20, 2010 at 9:32 pm

      Anything Price says that doesn’t include “art of pitching” is fine by me

    I would give anything to have every game like this…

      2 1/2 hours. Over and out.

        I don’t always like Mario and Rod–did I seriously just hear them mention Boesch as a Rookie of the Year candidate??–but I like how they have really been riding the Yankees for their ridiculously slow play.

        • kathy

          August 20, 2010 at 10:09 pm

          They play slow, imo, as a way to control the game. The pitchers are slow, the batters take forever fiddling before at-bats and between pitches. I don’t like it. Much prefer a faster pace.

          • kathy

            August 20, 2010 at 10:11 pm

            fiddling with their gloves, etc.

          • Coleman

            August 20, 2010 at 10:44 pm

            And when Posada is catching he goes out to the mound seemingly a couple times per inning

    nice to break up a 4 or 5 game losing streak to the AA Cleveland Indians

    • Coleman

      August 20, 2010 at 9:59 pm

      AAA > AA

      • kathy

        August 20, 2010 at 10:15 pm

        did you see the highlights from the AA game last night? FSN D showed the 5 errors made. OMG, it was hilarious. Not for them, but it looked like a clown show.

    MLB network is talking about Huff. He is mashing!

    • Coleman

      August 20, 2010 at 10:45 pm

      Aaaaaghh, not Huff! In SF they call him “Huff Daddy,” if they make the playoffs with Huff it will be incredibly annoying.

    EVEN THOUGH DON KELLY HAD HIS FIRST FOUR HIT GAME HE COULD HAVE TOPPED IT OFF WITH MAKING THAT CATCH.

    HOW MANY OF YOU WANT INGE BACK NEXT SEASON AND THE REMAINDER OF THIS SEANSON? HOW MANY OF YOU THINK THAT MAGGLIO WILL BE BACK NEXT SEASON? HOW MANY OF YOU WANT HIM TO BE BACK?
