St. Louis in town for just the two. They brought the baby blues for the occasion.

    Welcome back, Stephen.

    The A’s lawyerballing a pitcher with poor control is good for us, but kind of boring to watch.

      Three hours in, we are still in the seventh inning.

    The pointlessness of this broadcasting from LF thing makes it entertaining for me.

      I like they they both have their mitts with them just in case.

    That throw by Ozuna was real bad.

    The Mariners are about to get combined no-hit again.

      Congratulations to the Mariners on this extremely pathetic accomplishment.

      • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Aug 3,2019 7:36 pm || Up

        I just remembered that they signed their GM and manager to big extensions last summer because things were going so great. LOL.

          Scott Servais is #2 all-time in Mariners games managed. He’s one of only three (out of 20) with a winning record (Piniella and Lloyd McClendon), but after tonight he’s 300-299 and he’s not catching Lou in games managed so tonight is as good a time to be fired as any.

    Is anyone else using MLB.tv? I think I’m going insane after hearing that Jonas Brothers song during every commercial break.

    • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Aug 3,2019 8:37 pm || Up

      It’s “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” that is making me want to die.

      • lenscrafters Aug 3,2019 8:45 pm || Up

        Yes that too. If they’re going to show ads, cycling between 5 total ads is ridiculous.

        • 5Aces 5Aces Aug 3,2019 9:03 pm || Up

          So you guys arent getting the BofA commercial with the stupid vendor? Im ready to grab the hot dog out of his hand and shove it down his throat.

          • lenscrafters Aug 3,2019 9:07 pm || Up

            That’s one of the five. For me at least, it’s been easier to tune out ads without a song.

            • 5Aces 5Aces Aug 3,2019 9:30 pm || Up

              Thats funny. For me all the songs just blend into my ringing. But the bank commercial has closed captions which catches my eye and makes me pay attention.

              I don’t even mind the Jonas Brothers one (I am assuming the one I am thinking of is the Jonas Brothers song). There is just something about the isolated vocal on the Whitney Houston song that pierces my baseball zen in a way that only a Chris Townsend intrusion usually can.

    • Soaker Soaker Aug 3,2019 8:46 pm || Up

      Apparently you can listen to Tim McCarver between those annoying commercial breaks tonight, if you choose.

      The Jonas Bros/Whitney Houston ads are gone. Now every break has an ad where Charlize Theron walks into a bar, gets a fancy Budweiser from Bubbles from The Wire, and then kicks a bunch ass at pool and arm wrestling while Run DMC plays.

      • 5Aces 5Aces Sep 15,2019 12:28 pm || Up

        There are 2 versions of that one. 1 has an extra scene where you clearly see her shooting pool with 2 hands even though the gag is she is doing it all 1 handed.

        Yeah, seen it too much.

          I didn’t even pick up on the gag until it just came on again after your comment. Going to post that continuity error on her IMDB page.

      • lenscrafters Sep 15,2019 2:21 pm || Up

        Jonas Brothers/Whitney Houston has been replaced by Queen/Taylor Swift.

        • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Sep 15,2019 2:22 pm || Up

          I’m not getting that one! Thank god!

      My wife has completely given up on the Red Sox and is just waiting for college basketball.

      • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Aug 4,2019 11:32 am || Up

        They still have three with Cleveland, three with Minnesota, and four with Tampa Bay left to play. We may have to root for them.

    • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Aug 4,2019 6:24 pm || Up

      The Yankees are blasting them again.

  16. Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Aug 4,2019 1:29 pm

    I’m digging Roark’s whole vibe. The high socks, the body shape, it’s all good.

    • lenscrafters Aug 4,2019 1:32 pm || Up

      He has pretty good stuff.

      • 5Aces 5Aces Aug 4,2019 1:47 pm || Up

        I concur. Certainly liking him better than Mr. Bailey.

    I finally looked it up. A wainwright makes wagons.

  18. lenscrafters Aug 4,2019 1:51 pm

    This umpire is pretty terrible (same guy last night who couldn’t figure out what check swing strikes were), but it looks like Garneau is already the best pitch framer on the roster.

    • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Aug 4,2019 2:00 pm || Up

      Totally. The way Garneau received strike three to Carpenter is not something Phegley is capable of.

  19. andeux andeux Aug 4,2019 2:14 pm

    Lawyerball not as effective against a guy who can throw strikes.

  20. Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Aug 4,2019 2:33 pm

    I guess we know what the Cardinals’ plan is for pitching to Piscotty.

    Garneau knows baseball.

    I’m reaching the breaking point with Profar. They obviously tried to give Barreto his job, and that didn’t work out. Time to give Mateo a run? This AAAA Corban Joseph dude?

    • lenscrafters Aug 4,2019 2:48 pm || Up

      The Rangers recently released Asdrubal Cabrera. Not a great or even good option, but someone who’s probably still better than Profar right now.

    Agreed on Jurk store. He seems to have no plan or awareness at the plate and Im still in fear on anything but the most routine groundball.

    Petit only threw 11 pitches, I’m a little surprised they didn’t give him a second inning.

    • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Aug 4,2019 4:14 pm || Up

      Planning to use him a whole lot in Wrigley, probably.

  28. lenscrafters Aug 4,2019 3:55 pm

    Between wild pitches and walks, Diekman is a guy who exacerbates problems when there’s runners on. I wish BoMel would stop using him like he uses Petit, to put out other pitchers’ fires.

  29. Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Aug 4,2019 3:58 pm

    Gulp. More A’s runs please.
