    Nice acquisition M’s.

    Last time Leake was traded, the Giants got 9 starts in return for Adam Duvall and another good prospect, which would be like if we had traded Addison Russell for only Jason Hammel.

    Mulder said it’s awesome that Koch had 11 wins as a closer in 2002.
    I don’t think Hudson would agree.

    Why is Joyce facing a lefty in the 8th inning now that rosters have expanded?

        I had to drive to Sunnyvale and back this morning, giving me the chance to enjoy Joe Starkey and his unique perspectives (i.e. not what anyone else is seeing). Also five separate times he welcomed me to Durham, home of the University of North Carolina.

          He is so embarrassing, but he’ll probably try for 50 years (8 more counting 2017).

          • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Sep 2,2017 2:55 pm || Up

            The man has been misdescribing Cal football since the day I was born. It’s impressive, really.

    As the clock ticked down to zeroes, the representative from the Bad Boy Mowers Gasparilla Bowl was seen walking out of Kenan Stadium, shaking her head sadly.

    I will update my forecast for Cal from 2-10 to 3-9.

    • FreeSeatUpgrade FreeSeatUpgrade Sep 2,2017 12:52 pm || Up

      Maybe Cal is actually good? I’m clinging to that hope.

        My specific prediction is that the Bears will be 3-0 (Weber State at home, Ole Miss at home) before the commencement of the 0-9 Pac-12 campaign.

  10. Soaker Soaker Sep 2,2017 8:22 pm

    Matt Joyce was the starting center fielder tonight? Really, Bob?

    Argh. Treinen almost got out of that. With his slider diving like that all inning there’s no excuse for Maxwell to let that one through.

    Barreto batting second, playing second today. Also Jed has looked awful at plate lately.

    I watched Star Wars Ep. 2 last night for the first time since its release. I remembered it being very bad, but it is so much worse than that. I think it is the worst movie I have ever seen. And I’ve seen Ep. 1.

    • Future Ed Future Ed Sep 3,2017 1:31 pm || Up

      ep. 1 was the first movie I walked out of

      also 2 wa so bad when I showed it to the boys, I didn’t bother getting 3

        It’s bad on so many dimensions. Ewan McGregor is the only non terrible thing.

      • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Sep 3,2017 1:45 pm || Up

        Relatedly, I recently watched the “enhanced” Return of the Jedi and George Lucas is a monster.

    • dmoas Sep 4,2017 6:57 pm || Up

      I’ve always felt that 2 was the worst of the series. It literally was if they made shit up as they went along. 1 wasn’t good, but it at least had something resembling a plot to work with.

    I’m gonna guess Goseett’s game plan for Cano did not include waist-high meatballs.

      If Gossett misses location even a little bit his pitches look like beachballs.

    I know the Rangers don’t have enough pitching, but with 7 of their final 10 against the A’s, including the final 4 in Arlington, they would seem positioned to be the team that could make a late charge to the wild card.

      I saw the early 3rd quarter score in the sports bar last night and hadn’t even bothered to follow up this morning. Another overrated Fucla team going to an early demise. Thanks for pointing it out.
