Pirates @ Padres with younger brother last night.

5.2 IP with 1 ER is about as good of an outing as you’re going to see from Eric Lauer. A start nearly wasted by the Padres only coming up with 5 hits. For as much as that lineup is paid they’ve gotta start hitting better. Ironically, the of two batters who were most booed last night - Greg Garcia & Ian Kinsler - it was Kinsler’s 3 run shot that gave the Padres the steam they needed to win 4-3.

Why don't they retroactively make runs earned?  Last night Oakland guy scored on an error, so it was unearned, but even without the error, he would have been on second base.  Then the next guy hit a HR, so he would have scored either way.

Carlos Carrasco out indefinitely with a blood condition.  Nothing going the Tribe's way health wise this year, which was already looking to be just about the last year of their window.

I don't know if it's THE reason, but I can think of A reason.  The situation is different, and the pitcher may be pitching differently because of it.

Yeah, theoretical runs and stats would be a shark-nado.  Nuh uh.




Got treated to good seats at the Dodgers-Diamondbacks game last night for my birthday from a lady friend.  Dodgers won 9-0.  Couple of Brits sitting next to us, attending their first baseball game, so I got to explain everything to them.  That made it fun.

The things they focused on, with fresh eyes, was interesting.  One was that the infielders seemed to be pretty busy, so they were earning their pay, but the outfielders were just standing around the whole time, making millions.  The outrage!  I thought it was funny to differentiate the players that way.  Also, they thought it unfortunate for players to hit long pop fly outs and get nothing for them.  
Let's see, what else....they noticed the absence of cheerleaders.  They liked the idea of having the pool there, for a party of 30.  They had trouble with one runner tagging up on a deep fly and the other runner not.  They were impressed with how casual the infielders are making the play and holding the ball before firing across the diamond to get the runner out by half a step over and over.

That's an interesting story, OAM.

Sometimes you don't realize what things you take for granted until you have to explain them to someone else.

Went to an MLB game tonight, latest I can remember going to my first game.   I have to say it is glorious to have a Brandy Old Fashioned at the ballpark.  Too bad the Crew is making the Marlins look like the 27 Yanks.

Tonight Tigers-Royals on ESPN from the site of the College World Series.

I'm sure they are stoked for this epic matchup, although KC is fairly local, and with UM making it, there might be a decent Tiger fan base there anyway.  As for ratings, up against Game 6 of the NBA Finals?  Going to be dismal.

It will be a return of Matthew Boyd to the site of his 2013 CWS, complete game, 11 K shut out of Indiana.
