On Tuesday, the D-Backs, winners of seven in a row, travel to Denver take on the Rox, winners of five in a row and currently 13-4 in June.

LET THE SNAKE HUNT COMMENCE.

And Correa just hit a blistering rocket off Price.

Never mind the odd year/even year stuff, the Giants flat out suck this year. They've powerful sucked since the All Star Break last year and I say that as a Giants fan. Even worse, three teams in their division are loaded this year.
Nerts.

That is odd, the Orioles played the Cardinals today. Subby has an odd sense of humor.

Kris Bryant did no such thing.
 
2017-06-18 11:22:35 PM  
I was listening on the radio and just had a feeling they'd come back.  Previous Rockies teams would have caved in after giving up the lead in the 9th.

indybill23: Kris Bryant did no such thing.


was gonna say, I thought he had the day off. last year I had a hell of a time explaining to my autistic (and otherwise disabled) brother why it was that Bryant got MVP but not Silver Slugger, Gold Glove, etc. my brother had a hard time wrapping his head around the idea that playing plus defense at several positions increased KB's overall value but at the same time made it more difficult for him to win position-specific awards.

/not that Arenado isn't a beast, and his team is certainly much better than Bryant's this year, so he's got that going for him, which is nice

Unbelievable finish today!  Just flew in this afternoon and got tickets for Wednesday's game.

Josh Donaldson was facing the Giants today?

/Sorry, had to

 Enjoy your stay in Colorado.  Go Rockies.

I was at the game, Father's day gift. My SO is a Giants fan. It was a hell of a game!

In that one swing he won the game, completed the series sweep, hit for the cycle, and got us Tacos (7 runs and Taco Bell runs a free taco deal).

It's cool because it's rare, if it's not your thing there are MANY dumber fake things invented and your favorite band sucks.

No, it's kind of stupid and pretty meaningless. But it's kind of a fun thing to see and root for in person.

 It's a statistical anomaly, it doesn't happen very often and it is very difficult to do since getting a triple is much harder than getting a home run.

Today was the first time the Rockies swept the Giants in a 4 game series.

So you have to get the runs before you get Taco Bell?

 The Rockies get the runs, then you get Taco Bell, then you get the runs.

 So are the Rockies a top 20 team yet?

orangehat: So are the Rockies a top 20 team yet?


At the current rate the top 3 teams in the NL are in the West and there will be tears at the end of the season when we hit playoff time.

Also hard to believe this is the Rockies, we are normally very very average except for the 2007 World Series run which was pretty crazy, still seems like something is wrong but won't complain.

I hear you there.  As a Rockies fan I'm waiting for everything to fall apart since that is how things go but this is fun for right now.
And as a a Rockies fan I saw the Red Sox win a World Series in person, I saw them blow the playoffs against the Phillies in person, I saw a lot of failure.  That series against the Phillies was horrible.  I took the train home and every time someone talked everyone glared at them until they stopped talking.

Lots of injuries. Not gonna be a good year. Still fun to watch, still jealous of those who can go to PacBell on a whim.

Also, I don't get Melancon. Maybe I should tack a "yet" on there, but that's just being hopeful.

Triples are harder than homers.

"In doing so he completed hitting for the cycle" might be one of the worst sentences I've ever read, and that's saying something.

Question: What was with all the powder blue crap in the numbers and caps on all the teams yesterday? Just another holiday cash grab for MLB?

yep. well, technically it's for prostate cancer awareness for Father's Day weekend, the counterpart to the baby pink shiat they wear for breast cancer over Mother's Day. but in the end (heh), it's just more merch money.

it's a statistical oddity, which is pretty much baseball in a nutshell.

It's like an immaculate inning. It's rare. It's a nice stat line (at least 4 hits in a game, or 3 Ks in an inning with only 9 pitches thrown), but in the grand scheme of things, there's far better feats (i.e. 3 or 4 HR in a game or throwing a perfect game).

Oh good, one of these teams therefore has to lose, helping the Dodgers.

/how did three out of the best four teams in the entire MLB end up in the same division?

Good Q. The NL West is dildos. I'm glad there are wild-card spots for postseason play as all three need to be playing in October.

shiat happens. in 2015 the three best records were in the NL Central. two years later and their division leader is only five games over .500.

jesus christ almighty the Giants are terrible this year.  i mean my god.
