Watching the Yanks/O's game. Yanks up 4-2 bottom 5th. Tanaka might not even get out of this inning.

Sanchez left the game in the top of the 5th after hurting his arm on a swing & a miss. Official word is a strained right bicep.

 

Tanaka just loaded the bases with no one out. This could get ugly real quick.

Sounds like a good game

Ok. One of the volunteers today is from Kentucky. I have met her there before but we got to talking about her home state today. She is from Prestonburg, KY. Very nice person. People from IN and KY are very nice.

Prestonburg is the heart of Appalachia quite a bit away from here in the Tri-State

 

 I have strong ties with Kentucky Coal Country

I hear you loud and clear , think we all have players or pitchers in particular on our teams like that.

 

For me it is the hitters. 

 

Ugh. Mets are already down 2-0. The Marlins can hit. The Mets can't.

Betances gave up the lead. I shut it off. I've lost interest already.

 

Sorry about that.

 

I probably should turn mine off too. haha  Mets now down 3-0. I don't see them coming back against this pitcher.

 

What a difference between the Marlins hitters and the Mets hitters!  The Marlins can hit well and they have speed. 

 

Washington is down to the Phillies 10-0 in the 1st inning. Phils still batting.

Wow. How many pitchers has Washington used already in that one? Is that game in Philly? My daughter went to Philly's opener. She said it was bitter cold.

It is in Philly. Washington used one pitcher for the first 10 runs. He left with a guy on base and that run came in. Philly scored another run. So it is 12-0.

 

(I know this because the Mets announcers were talking about it.)

Gonna hurt his ERA. Are the Phillies that good this year or is this an anomaly?

His ERA is a whopping 135.0.

 

This is an anomaly.  They are not that good.  

 

They scored another run in the second.

    • I read that .... then reread it.......   Are you saying that he is a guaranteed starter?   Or there is no chance that he is the starter?   Its early, I havent finished my coffee.....  It might be my denseness       Goncalves would seem to have a real chance at RG.... IMHO  
    • A couple things that took place last year and throughout the off-season that I think will pay dividends this year on the defensive side of the ball.   Brents and Jones showed, in spurts, that they have the chops to play CB in this league and with a full season under their belt plus this off-season I think they will be a very solid tandem on the outside. Add in Flowers and his growth potential and a versatile rookie in Simpson I think the CB room is just fine and ready for the next step. Will they end up with more INT's and PBU's - I certainly think so.   Another coverage area that I think has improved is a full season and off-season of learning the LB spot for Ronnie Harrison and then the drafting of Jaylon Carlies and the singing of the UDFA Craig Young. All are former Safety's that have or had made the transition to LB and bring coverage skills with them and LONG arms - all three have 33" arms or longer which means wingspan and shutting down passing lanes. If the coaching staff isn't married to playing Zaire (Contract) and Speed (Veteran) on passing downs, then 2-3 of those fella's could play in sub packages and clog up passing lanes. They did cut bait with Shaq last year so I would hope that they play the kids that can actually cover versus the highest paid fella.   The addition of Latu, though he is just one man should also help speed up the QB's eyes and lead to more errant throws that could be picked off!??!   All three of those things tied together create a perfect storm of improvement in the weakest areas of our D last year.   As for Safety - I have mixed feelings about the FS spot and there are several 'what if' scenarios:   Cross could have something click and then the mental game meets up with his physical ability - which I feel like he played decent down the stretch last year (last 2-3 games)?   Thomas could return to his rookie form.   Daniel Scott could be a pretty good option but is also technically a rookie after sitting out all last year - though mental reps and walk throughs do help from time to time.   A really off the wall thought - perhaps they move Harrison back to SS and slide Blackmon to FS if the kids (Carlies & Young) prove capable as nickel and dime coverage backers?   Denbow is not the answer....... Dabo will be on year three of using the International Roster Exception..... Maybe they try Ameer Speed at FS with his size and speed combination? Maybe his college teammate Kendall Brooks earns a spot? Maybe Abraham or Simpson take FS and run with it? Both played that spot in college. Maybe Abraham proves he can play the NB and they slide Moore back to FS like he played in college?   Lots and lots of ifs and buts.........
    • Good question    Wiki simply says he's nicknamed AD, I wonder if it had to do with Hebrew pronunciation of the word Adonai, which means Lord.. maybe, it's just that his family or friends started calling him AD  
    • Fever get their 1st win over the Sparks. Clark hit a couple of 3s from real deep. 1 sealed the game late in the 4th.
    • Turner was afraid he was going to commit a 4th foul, so he couldn't be aggressive. He had 2 fouls within the 1st 4 minutes of the game. Questionable fouls.
