22 games remaining. Only 4 against a team with a winning record (A's).

What in the world was that call? It wasn't a swing and it wasn't close to being a strike.

That's some bull**** stuff this inning.
The ump changed the outcome of the game today. Inning they scored all their runs in would have been over had he not had the phantom foul tip. Even the batter was laughing about the call.

His zone was definitely inconsistent.

That being said, Greinke has to recover and can't leave that on a tee like he did with two runners on. And I guess the offense psyches themselves out in NL hitters parks like Cincy and Milwaukee. They could only manage 5 runs over two games. I guess it doesn't help that two of our biggest weapons were riding the pine today, even with an off day tomorrow.

Earlier this year I was all for having human umps as that is part of the game. After the last few weeks I'm all in on robo umps

I was at the game tonight. Hard to tell but was the Brantley K a foul tip? Yuli K was a make up for Yellich last night. What is news on Springer? Miller park is nice but they show no replays.

Brantley didn't look like a foul tip at all. Springer sure looks like a concussion

Human umps were the best option until now, and they do their best, but there's no reason to keep getting so many calls wrong when there's such a great alternative that has been successful in other sports.

Yeah George's Amazing catch will end in a loss and Springer out a few games. Save your health in non playoff non must win games


Yet everyone craps on Brantley when he doesn't go balls to the wall in left field.

2000 was last time they had 3 (Bagwell, Alou & Hidalgo)

Yuli needs 3
Altuve needs 5
Yordan needs 8

should get to 4 players, outside shot at 5.

If Correa can hit 1 more we are almost certainly going to have 7 guys with 20 hr. Doubt that has been done in team history (8 if Chirinos can get hot and hit 5).

Crazy to think that 35 years ago Jose Cruz led the team with 12.

So with 22 games left, we have a possibility of ending up with 3-4 players with 30+ HRs and 7-8 players with 20+ HRS... that's insane!

Yankees actually have 3 guys with over 30 since Encarnacion is over 30 for the season, but stats only show his 10 with the NY.

Random question - what's the significance of this thing Bregman is doing this year with the arm extended with four fingers out?

Well he used to flash 3 fingers at the start of his career on his quest to hit .300 so I'm sure this just means he's ready to start shooting for .400 (last few games he's on pace!!)

my guess was he was saying "should've walked me"

Fair ball sign w/ 4 fingers for a 4-bagger?

Yeah, but I've noticed he does it after a double as well....

He is remembering a #4 that might have passed away?

He's signaling it to all the ladies out there. Go big or go home.

I always thought he was striking the pose of his bobblehead sans bat.
