Beltran to the DL. Are the Giants the new Mets?

A soft-tossing RHP pitcher who has a good changeup that the Phils haven't seen before? Phils' offensive kryptonite!

Well, it wasn't like Mayberry had shown anything.

I've never really tracked it, but I swear everytime Kendrick gets demoted or sent back to the bullpen, somebody gets injured. They might want to check his locker for voodoo dolls...

From TTI's post on the previous thread regarding boilerplate language in MLB contracts, it seems like Heather might be right on LoMo. If the team has an issue with a player's citizenship or whatever, it can terminate his contract (or in Zambrano's case, suspend him without pay. The contract doesn't say anything regarding demotion to AAA (and the salary implications of that are pretty huge).

What people seem to be missing here is that MLB is a monopoly. LoMo has no option to join another team, because he hasn't been fired, just given a massive demotion that he can't reject and find a new employer in his field.

Mayberry:

I understand why Cholly wants to play Ibanez at home vs RHP tonight. What I don't understand is why he continues to start Ibanez vs LHP despite his .209/.235/.382 line in 110 ABs. Case of Cholly just being a mule & going with a veteran despite having a clearly superior option.

MLB isn't a monopoly. Riversharks would sign LoMo in a heartbeat.

George Herman Ruth, Jr. died on this day in 1948. Bless the Babe.

I'd expect a pitcher to recalled, with Polly's DL stint.

I'll say its time to see one of the 3 kids in the LV bullpen. Schwimer should be first up.

Aumont will be next by September 1st.

Herndon becomes the long-man for the next week.

George Herman Ruth was the first man to hit a ball over the roof of old Comiskey Park on this date in 1927.

Harry Kalas's voice was the sound of summer for my childhood. RIP Harry.

Also thinking ahead to next week...

Phils have the Mets for 3 games starting Monday. With the way Cole has struggled against the New Yorkers this year, it would make sense to push him back to the Florida series.

Here is how the rotation for next week could look...

METS-

Monday- Lee
Tuesday- Worley
Wednesday- Oswalt

MARLINS-

Friday- Hamels
Saturday- Halladay
Sunday- Lee

denny - How are Schwimer's platoon splits these days?

In re: the line-up
Good to see Chollie getting creative with the LaRussa switch - putting the better hitter ninth and sliding the worse one to 8th.

The last round of draft picks, IMO, made this a pretty good draft. Not so much that tall kid they drafted 49th, mind you. But Having both Walding and T. Greene in the system doubles the meagre chances that we'll have a shortstop prospect in, like, four years. From, like, a bajillion to one all the way to a gazillion to one. Much better odds.

Andy: I always considered gazillion to be bigger than bajillion

Halladay made look Upton look foolish.

Rollins wasn't exactly bustin' down the line there.

Game = over.

I feel a good performance from Doc coming tonight... hopefully the rest did good things for Utley and the rest of the lineup...

Can't lay off 87 mph high cheese. Weak.

Is Jess on the Dominos commercial a boy or a girl?

sifl: So you didn't go read the contract then? Thanks for playing genius.

People are getting hung up on the verbiage. The team has the right to expel him from the team if he breaks those "rules." That falls under discipline. they also have the right to not cut ties with him and can demote someone who did what he did. It doesn't help his case that they can cherrypick certain stats and say, "We demoted him for performance."


I mean people are actually forming an argument that guys in MLB have free reign to speak negatively about their team. And this is the third time in 2 months he has done so.

Hard to see how this DBacks lineup is getting the Jon done with so many veteran stiffs in the lineup including Bloomquist, Burroughs, and Overbay.

Let's hope the second time thru the lineup is better. Collmenter has only throw 4 pitches off the plate so far.

The Giants got it done last year with a bunch of stiffs

Do you think they'll be asking Ramsey about Nutter's speech on the curfew and the flash mobs?

Mike - yeah. Straight as an arrow fastball that is topping at 88 and his changeup. Hasn't impressed me so far but I bet this is one of those games where the lineup doesn't wake up until the 7th.

It begins.

TTI: You know that they claimed to have sent him down because of his .249 batting average, right?

First two pitches to Rollins exactly alike according to Gameday -one a strike, one a ball - go figure.

It stalls.

the only solution with soft tossers like this dude is to fill the lineup with pitchers.

except for utley. let him hit.

It sputters back to life.

I hate T-Bag's "Safe and secure" call more than just about anything I hear him say. Ugh.

Chase Utley hits a double down the line ... pitcher running so he doesn't get an RBI.

But hey, RBIs are the best stat.

JACK: Yes, of course I do. You do know that the original discussion about this particular aspect came because someone said that it was impossible to send someone down for their conduct.

What I'm saying is that they have the right to do so.

Pitch around here.

It's up to Hunter.

Beltran goes to the DL - so glad Phils didn't get him.

It gathers momentum. Pence takes the wheel.

Good AB by Howard. Didn't get a fastball and didnt swing at crap.


hib to the jib

MG: Bad AB by Howard. He's paid to drive in runs, not to walk. Come on, you've read BL long enough.

Making Collmenter work this inning quite a bit.


Pence a streaky hacker? I am getting STEAMED

Pence ricochets it off the rocks by East River/Kelly Drive, loses control, and barrels it into the Schuylkill.

How does Pence battle that at bat and then flail at that pitch waaay outside?

Not a bad AB by pence but how many balls did he chase that AB? 3? 4?

Yea, i don't quite get why pence watches the first 3-2 pitch he probably should have swung at and then swings at the 2nd pitch he should have watched. I mean isn't it sort of 101 that you cut the plate in half when your in a count like that?

Watching Dbacks broadcast, Mark Grace is excruciating.

Sometimes McCarthy's unfailing glass-half-full-ism is really enervating.

WTF was that balk call? Replay showed nothing.

if it had been a hit would they have still called the hitter back to the box?

Pence doesn't impress with his plate disc. Kind of guy who will enter his 30s, lose a bit of bat speed, and really struggle to compensate for his poor swing mechanics and plate disc.

Nice hustle, Jimmy.

Valdez woulda had 'im.

Rollins seems kind of out of it tonight.

Halladay is passed over that balk call.

Sanchez left Giants game with an injured ankle. They are falling apart.

Why is Martinez so useless on offense?

The Phils are playing like they're having a really hard time dealing with gout flare-up.

How many teams have a rule5 player batting .213 taking up a spot on the roster. I know he's versatile.

Seems like more & more teams are starting to figure out that the Phillies don't defend the stolen base well.

Nice angry pitch from Roy.

I guess versatile means he is a switch hitter that sucks left and right handed.

Okay, Rollins, enough is f______ enough with this damn game. Pound one . . . sort of like that.

Emphasis on "sort of."

This feels like a win.

Boom!

SHANE FOR MVP!

MVP!MVP!MVP!

Shane Victorino is actively hurting this team!

See, it's like I just said to Old Phan: "This feels like a win."

Looks like I picked a good day to miss the first 4 innings.

Runnerish Jimmy at iB gets partial credit for that.

Not a strike.

yikes

Utley has raised his average from .278 to .286 tonight...so far.

Did I just heat T-Bag say it was the "top of the 6th?"

OK, he corrected himself. Sheesh.

Howard's ABs often make me feel the need to consume alcoholic beverages.

Did Vic hit a changeup out?

Pence needs a day off. He's pulling off of pitches.

Bake, I AM consuming alcoholic beverages.

Pence may get his first golden sombrero tonight.

Yo. Pence. WTF?

MG, yes, Shane hit a hanger. Really crushed it. The only question was whether it would stay up. It did.

Victorino putting together a stealth MVP campaign.

Of course, his candidacy is based a lot on positional value, defense, and baserunning, the exact things people have problems considering in stats like WAR. Interested to see if anyone on here has thoughts on that contradiction.

DBacks are working Pence away, away, away and then going after him inside. Usually teams attack him the opposite way.

Just saw a shot of Davey Johnson managing the Nats - he looks terrible, how hold is he? 90?

Braves called up 20-year old Randall Delgado to make his 2nd career start against the Giants tonight. He's got a no-no through 6.

Pence swings at everything between the dugouts and he takes THAT pitch? It's ok Hunter we (most of us) still love you.

I hate King of the Bop

Season = over

Done a beautiful job so far of making Upton look confused at the plate.

Chooch's kids just started crying.

Uh oh.

Ouch, right in the cooch.

Homer in Atlanta - Delgado's no-no is gone-gone.

bap: The Braves have an incredible amount of young pitching depth. Consider that Hanson, Jurrjens, Beachy, Minor, Teheran, Vizciano and Delgado have now all pitched in the majors this year and are all 25 or under.

"Season = over"

My thoughts exactly.
