It's bad when the Ump runs faster than your 1B.

If Meche doesnt get it together, that error isnt going to mean much. Without the error, we "should" be scoreless bases loaded 2 out.

We're really good at letting the other team score 2 in the first on us these days.

alnorth
05-25-2009, 12:26 PM
at this point, I think the inning should be over without any runs scored except for the error, so no runs should be earned no matter what happens. We'll have to wait to see if the official scorer wants to give him 1 run, though.

If Meche can go 6 today without giving up more runs, it will be a miracle and I will declare his outing a success.

It all depends on if you think Granderson would have taken second on Polanco's grounder to Teahen. If you think Teahen would have gotten the lead runner on that grounder (you cant assume a double play on an error) then the Tigers strand the bases loaded and no runs are earned. If you think Teahen would have thrown out the guy on first, Granderson comes home on the single before 3 outs and you have 1 earned run.

5 outs on 12 pitches for Verlander

This is really kind of a stupid argument. Verlander has been throwing strikes. He's going to be around the plate.

It's pretty much agreed around the league that in the early innings vs him, you have to get after him early in the count.

Quit being such a total dumbfuck. I'm used to your usual asshattery, but today you're going beyond your realm.

petegz28
05-25-2009, 12:48 PM

I love the Royals but they're performance as of late is the reason why I never put too much hope in them. No matter who they throw out on the field they never fail to sleepwalk through large portions of the season. Losing like they did to cleveland was inexcuseable and getting shutout back to back to the tards is enough to make me reach for the nearest cup of antifreeze.

petegz28
05-25-2009, 12:54 PM

So he can catch a minor league start in the mean. He has head issues. They can't be eliminated in the minors, but he needs to keep pitching.

That last 2-run homer didnt quite put us at 0%. We were at 1% for some strange reason, now we are at 0.3%, which basically means that in the huge database of games, when a home team was down 9 runs with 2 outs in the top of the 7th, they came back to win 0.3% of the time.
