I went to bed safe in the knowledge that they were leading the Twins in the 8th.

But kudos to the Jays for representing the Leafs season in one game.

And somehow, Carlos Marmol was not involved.

That was just awful. I was utterly confounded at santos using the slider for every single pitch.

/thought the plan was to keep Cecil in

Glad not the Brewers...but give it time

When the eighth was all said and done, the Twins scored six runs on eight walks and just one hit.

good job guys.

Thank you, Toronto, for sparing Washington the shame of yesterday's worst performance.

To be fair to the Twins, it is kinda hard to get hits when the pitches are coming nowhere near the plate.

Funny, that was my first thought too

Did you not watch last night's game?

Only difference here is that the bats didn't wake up enough to win the game even if Wooten and Wang hadn't shiat the bed.
 
2014-04-18 10:55:13 AM  
Was it the Mets?  Goes to check article.  Okay, I was wrong.  It was the Blue Jays.

I saw the lowlights....just happy wasnt the worst bullpen performance of the night. You would think after so many years of a crappy bullpen they would fix the issues.

And yet it didn't involve Burke Badenhop or Edward Mujica.

\seriously, they suuuuuuuck
\\Doubront's not much better right now either

Trainspotr: And somehow, Carlos Marmol was not involved.


Right now CBS Chicago/670 The Score's website has a fun article about the most maddening Cubs' closers of all time. That was a nice trip down memory lane.

Marmol could have been dominant if he'd been able to throw the fastball for a strike.

Speaking of closers, my favorite Onion headline to this day is "Antonio Alfonseca still leads NL in fingers."
 
2014-04-18 11:38:59 AM  
One hit? One goddamn hit?!?!
 
2014-04-18 11:49:54 AM  
Thought it was going to be Edwin Jackson.
 
2014-04-18 12:09:21 PM  
And that's why you don't bunt after two straight walks.  Worked out here, but one bunt in the middle of (I think) seven straight walks looks silly.
 
2014-04-18 12:11:09 PM  
Angels?


No? Amazing!
 
2014-04-18 12:11:43 PM  
Could have sworn Rick Ankiel retired in the off season.
 
2014-04-18 12:13:21 PM  
Well, it was fun leading the division. Down to the basement now.

/go Jays go

Baseball sucks.

Always has, always will.

Not Rangers either! - Their bullpen actually managed to save ANOTHER Tanner Schleppers failed start
 
2014-04-18 12:57:53 PM  
Man. I thought nothing could top the 9th inning meltdown by the MAriners the other day.
 
2014-04-18 12:58:05 PM  

47 is the new 42: Was it the Mets?  Goes to check article.  Okay, I was wrong.  It was the Blue Jays.


And it took multiple pitchers. I've seen Billy Wagner do far worse all by himself.
 
2014-04-18 01:09:56 PM  
Didn't know Rick Ankiel got picked up.
 
2014-04-18 01:23:19 PM  
So nice to see the Al East having an Epic melt down, Rays losing 40% of its starters, Boston having an epic failure and now Toronto.
 
2014-04-18 01:24:08 PM  
Here is the worst ninth inning I've ever seen in person. Marmol came in to the ninth with a 2-0 lead. Walks the bases loaded on 13 pitches. Starts throwing strikes for the next batter, eventually gives up a bases loaded double. Walks the next guy on four pitches. Quade, who for some reason didn't have the bullpen up when Marmol went 3-0 on the leadoff guy, finally, mercifully yanks him for Wood, who walks the next batter. Cubs lose 6-2 when it's all said and done.

Ricky Vaughn's always a little shaky at the beginning of the season.

You can't say "goddamn" on Fark!

The MLB is just doing what the NBA is doing to the Raptors. Pretending that Canadian markets don't exist. It's almost like they regret giving Canada teams since it drains their viewership whenever they contend. After watching Canadian teams choke/crash/collapse and fold since '94 I no longer think it's a coincidence that the officials never give canadian teams the calls.


It was a cold night, tough to pitch in, Santos will bounce back, Happ is Crapp and should never pitch in the majors again. Too bad nobody wants to play on the Blue Jays(see the two 1st round picks in a row that refused to play), so we have to take him. AA/Gibby will be fired before Dickey/Morrow gets traded, so we're stuck with this clusterfark.


It's early, plenty of time to rebound and shut up the haters. Last years memories and innings like last night should help motivate this ballclub.


On to Cleveland and their star catcher who we rejected in favor of Arencibia. I wonder how that'll turn out...
 
2014-04-18 06:03:08 PM  
I had to check to make sure it wasn't the White Sox. Their bullpen has been monumentally bad so far.

/the Cubs 'pen isn't much better either
 
2014-04-18 08:35:30 PM  
Thank goodness the Twins were not on the bad end of that mess.
 
2014-04-18 10:10:09 PM  
meh.. looks like the Yankees are in the middle of their own bullpen implosion
