This is where all that depth they keep bragging about comes into play?? Maybe?? ::paranoid::

Greg, if they hold true to form the Rangers have scored all the runs they're gonna score tonight. And the bullpen is in, so it's up to the Braves to catch them, which they just might do, given the bullpen's past performances.

Edit: The reliever the Rangers used tonight to finish the game was Nick Martinez. He's in the starting rotation! You should file a protest! :lol:

While Irma devastates the Keys and South Florida, the Brewers are devastating the Cubs 14-0 at the end of the 6th. ::facepalm:: I tell ya folks, it's nothing but death and destruction.

I turned it off after the 3rd inning.

We just don't have the pitching we had last year.

I'd take a drubbing like that any day over what happened to the Rangers today. They took a 1-0 lead over the damnYankees into the 8th inning, and ended up losing the game 3-1. Cashner left the game after the 7th with a shutout, but once again the Rangers' bullpen blew the lead. ::paranoid:: ::dang::

Congratulations to the Nationals. First team to clinch their division this year. It's quite an achievement even though it's a weak Division.

Cubs were first to clinch last year but they didn't do it until 9/15. Portents of things to come??

Time will tell, Jerry. The Nats don't have a good track record as far as October is concerned. Maybe things will be different this year? ::pray::

Apropro of nothing. Just noticed Trevor Cahill is pitching out of the bull pen for Kansas City.

The Phillies aren't going anywhere but

Rhys Hoskins hit #15 and #16 last night and #17 tonight. He's played in 32 games now. Wonder if he needs an agent? He has made a crappy season somewhat memorable.

Hoskins mashed last year (2016) in the minors and mashed in the minors this year (2017) before he was called up. Hoskins is also 24 years old (i.e., not a young minor league player). My only guess is the Phillies were trying to delay arbitration, but Hoskins clearly deserved to be playing in the big leagues prior to August 2017. He's a very advanced hitter - power, average, low strikeouts, works the count, takes walks.

I turned it off 20 minutes ago. It was the top of the 8th and the score was Cubs 10 - Mets 2. Just checked before going to bed and it's the top of the 9th and it's Cubs 17 - Mets 5

The Phillies seem to have that habit of keeping young prospects in the minors Jerry. They kept Ryan Howard down as well and others. There are a few more down there in AAA that should have been called up but weren't. I don't know their thinking on this. The arbitration thing may be it, keeping control longer. Hoskins is MLB ready for sure. My only reservation, slight as it is, he is facing AAA pitching this part of the season.

What a cluster **** yesterday's game was against the Cardinals. Lacky went into one of his little hissy fits over a strike that was called a ball. Instead of walking it off and just getting the batter out on the next pitch (he got a hit and a run scored), he threw a tantrum and ended up getting himself and Contreras ejected. ::facepalm:: That boy needs some anger management classes or a solid rap up-side his cranial cavity. At least the Cubs won the game, 8-2.
