hahaha.

DeRosa just did "The Fifty Shades of Sonny Gray". He mentioned a "dominating" fastball, a changeup that "handcuffs" hitters and check out Sonny's "WHIP".

Gray made a tthrowing error last night that cost him 4 unearned runs, and the Jays won the game 4-1.

I'm watching the Red Sox vs Seattle on MLB Network.

Did you know that Chris Sale has struck out at least 10 batters in 13 of 20 starts?  That's impressive.

I think he's a pretty easy Cy Young winner this year. He's completely dominated almost every team.

The Jays won 3-2 in a walkoff. Once again, they made a rookie who was making his first start look like an All-Star. It took until the ninth-inning off Oakland's closer before they scored a run.

Yeah I saw that. WTH, he's been doing it for 20 years and suddenly it's a problem?

Cardinals completed a sweep of the Rockies last night. Paul DeJong hit his 14th homer. The only player in Cardinal history to hit his first 14 homers in less time is Pujols. DeJong has played in 49 games with 183AB. He's hitting .290 with the 14HR, 31 RBI, a .590 slugging pct and a .893 OBP. Good luck getting your job back Aledmys Diaz.

It's a problem because some umpire wants to be a superstar.

Thumbs down


14 homers in your first 49 games is pretty darn good!

The Jays are down 3-1 in the top of 5. Gibbons just got tossed for complaining about balls and strikes. I knew it was a matter of time. The Jays, both teams actually, have been qquestioning and complaining about the balls and strikes today.

HOLY CRAP! just before I click Send, the stupid prick just tossed Stroman and Martin on the following pitch. That's friggin' ridiculous! Same old 'king ump show! I couldn't even see Stroman do anything. I've said it before and I'll say it again, fans do not go to games to watch umpires!

I just went back and re-watched that whole thing using the A's broadcast. Even their announcers were saying there was absolutely no reason for the umpire to do that and it was just brutal. He took off his mask and stared Stroman down and then tossed him. As soon as Martin turned around, he tossed him too.

This comment I just read on a game thread is pure gold:
Thankfully Stroman and Martin have been tossed so that I can sit back and properly enjoy this umpiring performance without the distraction of good players.

Well, it must have really lit a fire under the boys! the Jays came back and won the game 8-4 in 10 innings. Oakland's reliever walked 3 runners and then gave up a walkoff grand slam after going 3-2 on Steve Pierce with 2 outs. It's the first time in franchise history of the Jays have one back-to-back games on walkoff home runs.

Never heard of him.  Good song BTW.  I'm a big fan of Sweet.

OK, first of all based on the box that looked like a ball.  But although I'm no lip reader it looked like all Stroman said was "Are you kidding me?" which obviously is NOT a case for ejection.  And it looked like all Martin did was turn around and ask what happened.

I'll need to keep my eyes out for this Will Little character.  Looks like we can add him to the list of self-important umpires.  You know, guys like Angel Hernandez, CB Bucknor, Laz Diaz, Joe West, etc. 

I definitely think the old adage is true; you know an umpire has done a good job in a game when you don't even know his name.

It didn't look like anything that warranted an ejection. Stroman didn't even look like he was paying attention to the umpire at the time.

Apparently he is one of the youngest umpires in the league.

You forgot to mention the ump from the Texas game last night, Gerry Davis.

Certainly nothing to be ejected for.  Unlike this also from last night:

Odd. It's just a Twitter link. I don't have a Twitter account, but I can see them.

This sums up what I though; the ump was looking to toss people.

DeRosa just went off on that umpire on MLB Central

He yelled "Get some feel behind the dish!" Then under his breath he said "Are we on live TV now? OK then I can't say any more."

In the audio I posted before, you can clearly hear Gibbons say "Were you out all f'king night?!"

I'm surprised more people don't get injured in some of those celebrations. I remember this one from Kenrys Morales several years ago.
