My favorite headline/byline on the Cubs thing:

Wrigley Field Beset By Wealthy Man Looking For A Handout

Another sad story about how a wealthy person needs all of our help.

crisco. Bardahl. Vagisil. Any one of them will give you another 2 to 3 inches drop on your curveball.

If the Cubs move out of Wrigley, where would they play? http://espn.go.com/c...umburg-boomers' class='bbc_url' title='External link' rel='nofollow external'>Right here.

Man, Nats fans are in a HUGE tizzy over Harper's ejection. And anyone who understands why he was ejected is a Nats hater/Orioles troll.

Not a Nats or Orioles fan (don't own him in any fantasy leagues, either), and that ejection was garbage.

I'd like to see what Harper was doing. The camera showed the umpire, who (a) was wearing his emotions on his sleeve (I despise Harper, but it was evident that Hirschbeck couldn't wait to throw him out of the game) and (b) should show a bit more discretion/hesitancy to throw someone out from 120 feet away.

It's hard to say one way or another without seeing what Harper did, but Hirschbeck is sorely lacking in professional decorum from where I see it.

Harper threw his hands up in the hair (showing the umpire up) and then he tossed his helmet and bat (further showing up the umpire). He was wrong, but shouldn't have been tossed from the game. Some umps just seem to be on power trips these days.

Players have been thrown out for being less showy arguing balls and strikes.

Halladay to the DL, fucking finally. He can stop costing us games now, especially against shit teams.

Angel Hernandez has long had a reputation for his hair trigger on tossing dudes from games.

In a classic moment, if you haven't seen this, it's brilliant. If you have, it's worth watching again:



"You're here for one goddamn specific reason!"
"What's that, Earl?"
"TO Fuck US!"

Halladay has been a great thoroughbred, but its time to put that horse out to pasture.

Much as I have complained I was thinking of buying MLB.tv. So I see there is Premium and plain MLB.tv. Premium includes At Bat, but I already have At Bat. If I buy plain MLB.tv will I still have At Bat or do I lose it? Anyone done this?

I think the regular sub is just to watch on your PC.

You should still have the app even if you buy the plain plan.

I don't see why you'd lose it, but I can't say for sure.

As someone who had basic for a few years and then switched to Premium, I do feel it's worth the extra $20. Not just the ability to stream on PS3/360, but being able to watch home/away feeds.

Definitely agree with this.

If the Cubs trot Marmol out to pitch one more time in a close game I think I'm going to scream.

Joel Hanrahan is such a useless piece of crap. Coughs up the lead and then conveniently he's "hurt" again. If he never pitches another inning in a Red Sox uniform, it'll be too soon.

Oooh. I didn't realize there was a difference (aside from At Bat). I guess that answers that question. Thanks!

Perhaps Pirates and Red Sox can work something out...

It's too bad Bailey got hurt. He was pretty effective until then.

That's Bailey's career in a nutshell.

Dammit, as a Giants fan it's in my blood not to like Matt Kemp, but after this article and video that is completely gone. I can't hate him anymore.

Hopefully the Mets will score in their half of the 9th. He's at 105 pitches, so I can't see him coming back out in the 10th. He's pitched way too well for them to hang him with a ND.

Ugh. Craig Kimbrel just got his third blown save in his last five save chances. Three blown saves is what he had all of last season.

Braves are too good, couldn't bring myself to watch the game tonight (esp. after they scored three runs in the top of the first).

Reds win in the bottom of the night offa back to back homers from Devin Mesoraco and Shin Soo Choo.

We gotta keep Choo next year, get rid of Bruce, and bring up Billy Hamilton.

Who's the third outfielder in that scenario? Ludwick, Heisey, Paul?

Harvey doesn't deserve a ND.

Hope Happ is OK. Was he unconsicous at any point?
