Ya gotta hand it to the Olde Towne Team: they did not wait until September to start truly sucking. Now I know how it feels to root for a team that turns into a doormat on Day 1. 

Hopefully Chaim Bloom will get the team turned around pretty soon.

There's a group of Phillies fans that gather outside the stadium to watch the home games through a gate and cheer on the Phillies. They have air horns and a drumline and make a lot of noise. The Yankees complained they were distracting.
They call themselves The Phandemic Krew. they sell t-shirts and other merch to raise money for Phillies Charities. So far, they've raised over $11,000.
Here they are behind the Phillie Fan cut-outs—which is also awesome. I think the entire 1st level and part of the 2nd is full
Management have decided to make a Phandemic Krew Bobblehead in appreciation for all they've done.

Surprised nobody mentioned Lou Brocks passing. IPad is on the fritz and I'm on my Fire which is so small.
 

In one of those can't-really-compare-different-eras questions, I always wondered how he'd do as a base stealer today. When he was playing, the pitcher was allowed to do a lot more trickery, and I think balks weren't the knee-twitch-squint that they are now. I think he'd do well. And back then, in the NL, stealing wasn't as revered as it came to be during Rickey's tenure, so I think he'd have stolen more in the 80s. 

I was always a Rickey fan, though, so Lou came to be sort of a caricature of "the guy to beat." Hit for average, not just singles. Would have been exciting to see.

Tom Seaver passed away today at 75


I'm a Phillies fan, but on my desk sits the baseball Mr. Seaver threw the pitch before his 1,000th strikeout.  Willie Montanez hit it (foul) to my father, before missing the next one.  

My first and only foul ball at my first baseball game, June 29, 1971.  Who knew it would take 5+ decades to get another (including several seasons of tickets)?  RIP Mr. Seaver.
 
That's sad, what a terrible disease.  He was a great for sure - a class act and a gentleman and beloved in NY and beyond.  I'm glad I got to see him pitch a few times.

“I would have liked to have had the opportunity to pitch an extended period of time with Tom. I give Tom a lot of credit for having an impact on my career. He was the first guy that I was around who was truly focused on his career and had goals and set out to achieve those goals. His work ethic and just being around and observing him had a very positive influence on me.’’ - Nolan Ryan

Was just talking about how I probably passed on the chance to see Tom pitch in Oakland when he was with the White Sox, but I had those Miracle Memories so why do anything that would take away from that?

I have some 1972 Topps cards of his, including the "In Action" card they filled out the end of the series with. I should dig out the cool ones from the one summer I bought baseball cards and frame 'em.

Earlier this year, as he was hitting a solid .219 after flirting with some records for a month or so last spring, one of the Giants announcers said of him, "He makes a GREAT first impression."

  Every year I usually get in one or two rants about the blackout rule, how MLB hates its fans, and reminiscing about the good old days when WGN would broadcast all of the games that weren't nationally broadcast.  At the end of last season though an amazing thing happened.  The Cubs ended their contract with WGN and the two or three other stations the they had divided the games between and formed their own Marquee Network to once again carry all of the non-national games.  Even more amazing Comcast got it onto basic cable by Opening Day.  Once again I am able to watch every single game as god intended.  This is of course greatly tempered by it being covidball instead of real baseball, but is was a multi year deal with Comcast so maybe we can get back to something close to normal before it ends.  The new network is even better than WGN was too.  Not only are they showing all the games, but they rebroadcast them two or three times before the next one.  They have more pre and post game analysis and when they're not showing a game the programming is heavily baseball in general and Cubs in particular oriented with no Walker, Texas Ranger or Xena: Warrior Princess.  Really the only thing WGN had that they don't was Harry.  Once again I can go back to being pissed off when the Cubs are on nationally and I have to endure announcers who know nothing about the team and little about baseball and are likely to cut away to other games or maybe even tennis or golf or the like if they feel like it.  It's a national broadcast tonight.  It's nice to finally be able to hate Fox as much as they truly deserve to be hated.  
 

So far this season the Cubs are 12-0 when they were broadcast on Marquee and 0-3 on the national broadcasts, but I'll probably watch it tonight anyway.

Pitching mixup in Astros’ favor

The mound took center stage again at the end of the seventh when reliever Josh James ran all the way from the bullpen to pitch to start the eighth, only to find out he couldn’t. That’s because Brooks Raley, who got the last two outs in the seventh, had already tried to come back out of the dugout and ran onto the field, which meant he had to face at least one hitter.

Brooks Raley forced to stay in

Raley, acquired Sunday in a trade from the Reds, wound up pitching a 1-2-3 eighth and retiring all five batters he faced on the night. Baker said he gave Raley “knuckles” in the dugout after the seventh, but Raley didn’t know that meant he was done for the day.

“He doesn’t know me,” Baker said. “Next thing I know I look out there and he was the first one on the field and I said, ‘Oh man, you’re done.’ The umpire came out and said he had to face one batter since he crossed the line. ... It worked out great because he closed out the eighth very well.”

Raley thought Baker was giving him congratulatory knuckles.

“That meant something else,” he said. “Having been here a couple of days, I know now knuckles means ‘Have a seat.’”

Baseball has a lot of oddities, but the NL East right now...

- is lead by a team with 5 wins...
- That is 1/2 a game ahead of a team with 8 wins...
- who are 2 games ahead of a team with 4 wins...
- Who are 1/2 a game ahead of a team with 2 wins...
- Who are 1/2 a game ahead of a team with 5 wins?

2 teams have played 6 games....and 2 have played 13... and one team has played 9?

I'm so confused
