I know that there's a lot of Reds fans here and you'll disappointed to know that Cueto isn't even close to throwing the ball.

He looked fat, not surprised that he's having more health issues this year.

I got to watch the Pirates on TV for the first time this year, and boy was it enjoyable. I'm jealous of you that get the Pittsburgh broadcast daily.

Based on NH's comments yesterday, my guess is yes.

well, if lambo replaces alex pressley, that means fewer cheesey hound dog/elvis/all shook up remarks. so it might be a push.

Instead of regressing, they’ve maintained their early season performance almost exactly. Their offensive wOBA went from .306 to .307 and their wOBA against — the part of their team that looked to be the most “flukey” — actually went down from .288 to .286. Basically, the Pirates have spent the last two months winning the exact same way they won the first two months: elite run prevention and a good enough offense.


For the Diamondbacks to pass the Pirates and capture the final wild card spot, Arizona would have to outplay Pittsburgh by 200 points of winning percentage, which is about the difference between the Braves and Marlins thus far. If you expect the Pirates to begin to play like the worst team in baseball starting today, then the D’Backs just need to play like the best team in baseball in order to run them down.

As you suggested in an earlier post, I think entering September at 82 wins would be huge. That's all the media will be talking about until it happens. 17-11 would be a solid 5th month of the season and allow them to focus on playoffs and division for the final month.

Agreed.

Until the last couple days, I didn't think they had a shot at the division, but they certainly do now. I really, really, really do not want to end up in a one game playoff, especially against the Reds.

that being said, the fact I can even wish for the above is pretty damned nice.

I like Greg Brown, but he has some positively cringeworthy moments.
