  1. Speaking of losers, how ’bout that Shane Greene 9th yesterday. Can you spell b-l-o-w, boys and girls? I know you didn’t think we’d inch back up to .400. I love losing to the Chi-Sox after splitting a series with the Yanks. Speaking of, it looks like the AL Central decided to give some brutal losses to the AL Beast just because we can, even if we suck. I only wish we could play spoiler this season. R-E-S-P-E- sit down, child, you are embarrassing us.

    1. Aye, but the loss moves us ahead of the White Sox for draft positioning next spring. Got to think big picture my friend, and don’t tell me you don’t trust the Tigger front office to do good things with a higher pick. (Sarcasm font where are you….)

      Since Prof is letting the kids play, I’m picking relevant music today.

  2. In their never-ending quest to fail to escape the Strange Attractor, the Nats have made it to 69-69 (with a +68 run differential), a record that has prompted many “nice” comments on Twitter, where everyone is a twelve year old boy.

    Soon to be former (probably) Nat Bryce Harper managed to overcome his tuberculosis (seriously, he’s been battling some kind of nasty cough for a week or more) long enough to hit a game-tying home run in the ninth and a walk-off sac fly in the tenth, no doubt causing The Best Fans In Baseball to cry into their Budweisers and Busches.

    Harper’s heroics spared Max Scherzer (7IP, 3ER, 4H, 11K, 1BB) yet another ignominious defeat in a game where the Nats went 1-10 with RISP and managed to strand 15 baserunners, a number that would be considered eye-popping for most teams, but is just par for the course for the soon to be golfing Nats this year.

    1. So… serious q: for me, the race for NLCY is between Mad Max and deGrom. Both of them are battling some messed up shiz re: their teams. Max has the weight of mediocrity while deGrom is on a stinkburger. I think personally that deGrom is doing the Lord’s work in NY and his ERA is eye popping. But what say you? Does either one of these aces get snake bitten by their lame-o teams?


        1. He’s my number three, and if deGrom and Max split votes for team reasons, Nola can surge ahead. This feels very much like when Kershaw, Greinke, and Arrieta were neck and neck. I think y’all know I was Team ZG that year, but all candidates were worthy.


        1. I’m thinking with crusty musty bbwaa brain here. Nola is my solid third, and my dark horse who has no chance but deserves respect for his season is Patrick Corbin out in Arizona. Dude is killing it after a few years of injuries.

          Still giving my vote, if I had one, to deGrom


      1. Hey Prof, would you please email me – if you don’t have my personal email, please contact me through the Cormac McCarthy Society at info at cormacmccarthy dot com.
