Last night we witnessed BASEBALL in Chicago where the KC Royals and the White Sox finally had at it after bad blood had been flowing between both teams. The lid finally blew-off when Jordano Ventura quick-pitched Adam Eaton, who bounced back to the box. Eaton had some words for Ventura, Ventura fired back, and it was on! Five players were thrown out of the game. I have to say, even though Harold Reynolds pointed out that...
In a rather light newsworthy day yesterday, the New York Mets did win their ninth straight game yesterday, with rookie catcher Kevin Plawecki, who was just called up to replace the injured Travis D’Arnaud, getting two hits and scoring 2 runs.
Yasmani Tomas, in place of the injured Jake Lamb, placed 2 hits and plated a run in the D-Backs loss to the Texas Rangers last night.
Not only is Chicago Cubs phenom 3rd baseman KRIS BRYANT being called up today, and being put in the Cubbies starting line-up, but, by the way---HE’S BATTING CLEAN UP! Hope you hopped on him in your draft. Mike Trout potential impact!
Injuries starting to pile up—CARLOS GOMEZ hits the DL with hammy, JOSE REYES has a fractured rib cage, and VICTOR MARTINEZ is STILL nursing his surgically repaired knee.
Even though Rafael Betancourt racked up the save in place of LaTroy Hawkins for the rockies against the Giants yesterday, don’t expect him to be the primary guy who gets the ball in the 9th. Adam Ottavino had pictched 2 1/3 innings over Saturday & Sunday, so he needing a day off may have prevented manager Walt Weiss from calling on him to finish the game.
Both Brett Gardner and Hanley Ramirez both escaped injury, whe...
On today's edition of Who's on First, Vince goes on a rant on one of his league competitors for stealing TWO CLOSERS out from under his nose, calls out Blue Jay manager John Gibbons and makes a BOLD PREDICTION concerning the 2015 New York Yankees.
Brett Cecil has been removed from his duties as closer in favor of 20 year-old rookie phenom Miguel Castro. The door has been left open for Cecil to get his job back if he straightens out his early season woes, but if Castro’s lights-out in the 9th---that ain’t happenin’!
Ian Kennedy of the Pads was pulled from his start against the Giants last night due to a mild hamstring strain. Kennedy may require a trip to the DL...
