Indians are now 4-8 vs left-handed pitching this year. As much as it pains me to say it, it may be time to make that phone call to Columbus...

I think mom wants a nap
 
2012-05-13 03:44:40 PM  
I'm a big fan of mothers in general, but the pink bats I can do without.
 
2012-05-13 03:47:02 PM  
Come on M's, hold off the yankees.

They even have the pink magnet necklaces now too.
 
2012-05-13 03:51:40 PM  
Well...at least we're still in first.

:sigh:
 
2012-05-13 03:59:01 PM  
Bases loaded, top 9, tie game, Justin Turner coming up against Heath Bell. Last time they faced each other it was a very similar situation, Turner had an epic AB, ended up on base, and the Mets won. Let's hope for the same.

Also...Justin Turner: Ginger Bro.

Brendan Ryan got his money's worth on that At Bat, 10 pitches to draw the walk.

[csb alert]

Back when I was about 13 or so I saved up the money from my paper route & took my mom to an A's game for Mother's Day ('81 I think). We rode BART over & sat out in the bleachers. She still talks about it as the best Mother's Day that she's had (to be fair, these days M'sD is usually a phone call to say hi & an email with recent pictures of the grandkids (something she gets a couple times every week anyway...)).

Years later when Billy Martin was out schlepping his book, Mom ran into him at a signing & told him the Mother's Day story. He liked it so much that he gave her another copy inscribed to me thanking me for taking her to the game.

Goddamnit Cardinals, why do you suck against the Braves?
 
2012-05-13 04:03:10 PM  
Double down the line by Turner! Mets go up 4-2. Heath Bell can't do shiat against the Mets.

And now to our wonderful closer.
 
2012-05-13 04:04:29 PM  
Yankees pitcher with a HUGE error with 2 outs and bases loaded. Screws up fielding a ground ball (should have left it for Jeter) then tosses it away trying to go to first.

6-2.
 
2012-05-13 04:05:13 PM  
Great work, Rapada. Really great stuff.
 
2012-05-13 04:06:23 PM  
Okay M's, 3 more outs.
 
2012-05-13 04:06:55 PM  

Mrtraveler01: Goddamnit Cardinals, why do you suck against the Braves?


They swept them in September last year, when it mattered. They'll be okay. Anyway, a true Cardinals fan would know that they want their team to be pretty much mediocre in the regular season. The Cards have two of the worst regular season teams that have won the World Series in my lifetime.
 
2012-05-13 04:09:46 PM  
Dammit, Francisco. Leadoff triple for Bonifacio. Still up 2 though.
 
2012-05-13 04:09:55 PM  
Ahahaha Swish gets thrown out trying to turn a double into a triple.

You need baserunners you idiot.
 
2012-05-13 04:10:36 PM  
Why to run, Swisher
 
2012-05-13 04:11:31 PM  
Francisco just threw 3 pitches to the same spot. 2 were called balls, 1 a strike. I don't get it.
 
2012-05-13 04:12:01 PM  
And that's that. Greaaaaat.
 
2012-05-13 04:12:16 PM  
M's win!
 
2012-05-13 04:12:33 PM  
Annnnd Buck walked. Runners on the corners, no outs, tying run on first. Damn it all.

Harv72b: I'm a big fan of mothers in general, but the pink bats I can do without.


I'm a mom, and I hate the pink bats, wrist bands et al.

Man, can't we change the schedule to have the Sox play the Tribe every game? This is great.
 
2012-05-13 04:15:16 PM  
And the other New York team is about to lose a 9th inning lead
 
2012-05-13 04:15:35 PM  
Base hit Dobbs. Marlins get 1 run in, the tying run is now on 3rd, and the winning run is on 1st with no outs. And the Mets are bringing in Manny Acosta of all farking people. I'm not happy. This isn't fun.
 
2012-05-13 04:17:28 PM  

robsul82: And that's that. Greaaaaat.


Meh - they still took 2 of 3. And they have Nova and Sabathia on Monday and Tuesday against the FIRST PLACE ORIOLES
 
2012-05-13 04:17:38 PM  
Francisco went after the ump after he got pulled. No contact (except with Terry Collins) but he'll probably get fined.
 
2012-05-13 04:18:52 PM  
Reyes ties it with a sac fly. It's so weird to be unhappy about Jose Reyes doing something good.
 
2012-05-13 04:20:25 PM  

Rex_Banner: Meh - they still took 2 of 3.


Against the Mariners in NY, they should sweep.

I'm okay with the matchups. Hammel and Chen have both been playing solid ball.

Recoil Therapy: [csb alert]

She still talks about it as the best Mother's Day that she's had (to be fair, these days M'sD is usually a phone call to say hi & an email with recent pictures of the grandkids (something she gets a couple times every week anyway...)).

Not-so-csb: Back when I was 16 or so I sold my 1982 Topps Traded Set Cal Ripken, Jr. card to buy a mother's day gift. This was before grading was common, but the card was so flawless that the dealer gave me full book value for it--$85 at the time. A quick search just now found a graded 10 card which just sold for $2,938.11 in January; at the very least that card would've graded at 9.5 (perfect corners, flawless color, dead centered cut).

I've never told my mother that story.

The three dingbats in the FO presented Lowe with another 2004 ring, the first classy thing they have done since last June. He had no idea about it.
 
2012-05-13 04:24:55 PM  
The Orioles' perfect record in games where they score 5 or more runs is in jeopardy. Trailing 9-6 in the 8th now.
 
2012-05-13 04:28:32 PM  
And Stanton goes walk-off grand slam. That was horrendous. Bye.
 
2012-05-13 04:29:22 PM  
Giancarlo Stanton with the walk-off grand slam against the Mets

Baltimore definitely has the edge in Monday's game but CC's been in beast mode recently.

Welcome back Andy Pettite, you can leave now.
 
2012-05-13 04:38:28 PM  
My mom is awesome and i sent her a bonzai tree & had Black Forrest restaurant bring breakfast to her door. I love my mom. I will not "cuddle" with my mom.
Your mom, however...
 
2012-05-13 05:06:05 PM  
Just one run to get jays....
 
2012-05-13 05:11:09 PM  
Willingham with a great catch in the corner, but the runner advances to second. One on 2 out in the top of the ninth in MN.
 
2012-05-13 05:14:11 PM  
Capps K's Kelly Johnson to pick up the save for the Twins
 
2012-05-13 05:20:42 PM  
Gameday says that Matt Kemp was replaced by Bobby Abreu in the 4th inning. Anyone know what happened to Kemp?

Irritated his hamstring and was pulled. He was...not happy about it.

Ahh. Thanks. Sounds like their being kinda careful with that hamstring. Makes sense
 
2012-05-13 05:37:07 PM  
It looks like Addison Reed exploded. I have absolutely zero luck this year with closers. Even Brett Myers finally blew a save today.
 
2012-05-13 06:40:08 PM  
Padres still in last place?

Yup.
 
2012-05-13 06:43:28 PM  
Braves broom the Cardinals. This Atlanta team may not be half bad.

Walk-off Grand Slam!
Doesn't get any better than that!

He killed it today. That asshole.
