I LOVE THIS ONE. KRAMER Vs KRAMER! Is there a doppelganger Chris Tillman?

Chris Tillman served up three home runs for the second straight start as he was saddled with a no-decision against the Yankees on Friday.

Tillman gave up five runs in total on eight hits and a pair of walks over 5 2/3 innings, striking out five in the process. Carlos Beltran and Alex Rodriguez tagged him for back-to-back shots in the fourth inning, and Austin Romine added another the following frame. Even with his propensity to give up the big fly lately, Tillman still sits at 7-1 on the season with a 3.33 ERA and 1.18 WHIP. He'll look to get back in the win column on Wednesday against the Orioles.

Giancarlo Stanton homered twice Wednesday in the Mets' loss to the Marlins.

Stanton hit a monster drive to left-center in the top of the fourth inning and then went even longer with a bomb to the top deck in the sixth. Both homers came off Jacob deGrom, but they were solo shots and New York won the game 4-2. Stanton has tallied four home runs in under 24 hours and finally appears to be coming alive after a sluggish May and June.
 
Mets are setting new levels for futility as they lose to themselves!!

Drew Pomeranz recent update:
 
o Union-Tribune's Dennis Lin reports that "about 10 teams" have asked the Padres about the availability of Drew Pomeranz.
FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal relayed on Tuesday that the Rangers were showing interest in Pomeranz. On that front, Lin notes that the Padres could be eyeing the versatile Jurickson Profar as a return, though they would probably need a bigger package than the pitcher alone if they wanted to swing for that deal. Pomeranz made it to Tuesday's All-Star Game on the strength of a 2.47 ERA and 115/41 K/BB ratio (102 innings). Of note for any team considering a trade for the 27-year-old southpaw -- he has already surpassed his previous career-high for innings pitched. Prior to the 2016 season, he had never thrown more than 96 2/3 innings. Jul 13 - 7:19 PM
 
 
This couldn't be more wrong,  in his 5 year professional career he has surpassed this year's 102 IP in every year but 1...
 
2011: 119.1
2012: 147.1
2013: 112.2
2014: 115.1
2015: 88.0
 
No idea what the writer was looking at, as his total doesn't match any MLB or minor league total in his career....  but his career high is 50 IP higher than stated.

Writer was clearly looking at MLB only. Career high in just the majors was 96 2/3 in 2012. Definitely misleading, and he could've clarified, but this is the most innings he's ever pitched in the majors in a season.

Couple good ones I noticed tonight...The late "Jackass" star has apparently been reincarnated as a pitcher for the A's.  And Nimmo is back with the Mets.

Albert Pujols went 3-for-5 and hit a walkoff homer in the bottom of the ninth to give the Angels an 8-6 win over the A's on Wednesday.

Pujols took Ryan Dunn deep after Mike Trout reached on an error to start the inning. It was Pujols' 12th career walkoff homer. Thanks to the top of the Angels' order presenting him with so many opportunities of late, he's up to 84 RBI for the season.
 

Mets manager Terry Collins said that Yoenis Cespedes (quad) will be placed on the 15-day disabled list.

Cespedes did homer in Wednesday's loss to the Yankees, but he said that he felt discomfort in his quad during his last at-bat. This has been something of a lingering injury and placing the slugger on the disabled list is probably the Mets' most logical move for a healthy stretch run. Brandon Nimmo is expected to be called up to take his spot on the roster.

Nimmo never got traded.  The trade with him going for Bruce got nixed and they redid it with another Mets prospect.

Angel Pagan per rotoworld - 

 

"Pagan finished the game 1-for-4 and is now hitting .282/.327/.433 for the year. That slash line is pretty good but the counting stats won't impress fantasy owners. He has eight homers, 43 runs, 40 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 77 games."

 

So that's a 162 game avg of 17 HR, 90 R, 84 RBI and 21 SB which is basically 2015 Mookie Betts... Apparently they just mean lazy fantasy owners that don't pay attention to their daily lineup.

  • New Player Note Thu, Aug 11 Gerardo Parra

  • While his teammates were combining on 15 hits and 12 runs, Gerardo Parra went 0-for-5 against the Rangers on Thursday.

    Advice: With Carlos Gonzalez banged up, Parra has started five straight games since coming off the disabled list. Ideally, his playing time will be greatly reduced once Gonzalez returns to the lineup. The Rockies shouldn't use his salary as an excuse to justify playing him when his performance hasn't warranted it. He's hitting .257 with a 46/4 K/BB ratio in 265 at-bats.

    (Rotoworld.com)

 

rockies executive 1: "parra's really been struggling lately, and part of me thinks that we're using his salary as an excuse to justify playing him when his performance hasn't warranted it.  what do you think?"

 

rockies executive 2: "I'm not sure.  let me take a look at his fantasy blurb on rotoworld."

 

rockies executive 1: "whatever."

I mean really, who writes this s**t. Codgy 80 year old men?

 

Jake Odorizzi improved to 7-5 in Sunday's win over the Yankees, yielding three runs on five hits over six innings.

Quality start for Odorizzi, who struck out six and walked one on the afternoon. All three runs on his line scored via the home run, with young whippersnapper Aaron Judge swatting an opposite field solo shot off Odrizzi in the third and fellow young gentleman Gary Sanchez cracking a two-run dinger in the fourth. Otherwise, it was a smooth six frames for the 26-year-old right-hander. He will carry a 3.72 ERA and 1.21 WHIP into a home start against the Rangers next time he toes the rubber.

noticed this one earlier this eveing.  Bourn hasn't played for the Indians since 2014

 

Michael Bourn went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two total RBI in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.
Bourn cranked a solo homer in the fourth inning to put the Indians on the scoreboard. They trailed 9-1 after that dinger. He would later come through with an RBI single in the eighth. They trailed 16-2 after that RBI knock. It was that kind of an afternoon for the Indians. Bourn is slashing .256/.306/.359 with three homers and 28 RBI for the season as a whole. He holds little fantasy intrigue outside of deeper NL-only formats. Aug 14 - 5:37 PM

Was that the sole problem with the write-up?

 

Pretty much.  They didn't mention how Shoemaker was flip-flopping between his fastball and sinker to keep hitters off balance, instead of just pumping fastballs in there.  His fastball tends to be a bit flat, and you don't want hitters just loafing around in the box waiting to turn on one.  They also could have mentioned that Scioscia, who often plays the heel by leaving Shoemaker in there too long, gave him the boot after 6 with the team comfortably on top.

Bravo!

 

This post really lifts my spirits.

Yankees manager Joe Girardi named Masahiro Tanaka as his probable Opening Day starter.

 

Girardi didn't make that announcement until just before the end of spring training last year, but he got it out of the way early this time. Of course, it's not a big surprise. Tanaka owns a 3.12 ERA over 75 starts over his first three starts in the majors.

Dude just take the deal!

 

Brad Brach had his arbitration hearing Thursday.

The decision is expected to come Friday. Brach filed for $3.05 million and the O's filed at $5.525 million when arbitration figures were exchanged in early January. The right-hander posted an excellent 2.05 ERA with 92 strikeouts in 79 innings last season out of the Baltimore bullpen.
