Bad things happen when Saul Rivera is on the mound.

C'mon people...the umpire blew it on that last all.  Rivera didn't do awful, and he K'ed LaRoche to minimize the damage.  6-1 Nats.

Hey, is anybody else having trouble with MLB Gameday?

EDIT: Nevermind, it finally seems to be working again.

I know this is late...I was away from my desk.

Brian McCann singles on a soft line drive to right fielder Austin Kearns.    Edgar Renteria scores.

I don't at like all this talk about making Vidro a 1st baseman.  Sounds too much like they are entertaining trade offers for Nick-at-Nite.  Both homered tonight and Perez had 6 innings with only 1 hit, no walks, no runs?  Sounds...um...Christ-like...
And now a word from Nook-at-Night...

Okay, anyone want to take bets on when Nook Logan turns back into a pumpkin?  Nats 7, Cowards 1.

You may want to drop bumsfan4 (on the MLB board) a note.  Tell him I referred you so he knows how you found out about him.

I have just re-run the Monte Carlo simulation that predicts the probability of the Braves making the playoffs, and it is 0.00000000000000000000000001%  Not quite zero, but getting there....

What a feat it would be if a leadoff man (Soriano) hit 100 RBI's!

Soriano will only have 11 games after tonight to get three home runs to TIE Frank Howard's city record of 48.  I think Hondo's mark is going to stand.

"grounds out softly."  I love reading that on MLB Gameday.  It seems so...pathetic.

Many thanks for the tip.

By the way, Tom...WTF is going on with that troll on the MLB board?  Why in God's name has the (absentee) moderator not banned this schmoe?

Okay, we all know what this situation calls for: the lineup has to bat around and give Zim a chance to get RBIs #99 & 100.  

Hey, if the Dodgers can hit back-to-back-to-back-to-back home runs in the bottom of the ninth, then we can do this.

Why anybody still reads & posts from that "message board" when there are obvious alternatives escapes me.  But I suppose I am bias.   :D

It's almost certainly the troll who changes his name once a month - Donnie Fritz/Glen Burnie/Lester Craddock / etc.

I've reported him for impersonation, a bannable offense, but what would be done in 10 minutes here could take 10 weeks there.  Moderator(s) are absentee for sure.

There are still some quality posts to be found there, though obviously they've got nothing like the game threads here.  

I really like the fact that you can usually count on the same bunch of 'regulars' to make an appearance here every night...makes me feel like I've been remiss in not posting.  Okay, I'll be sure to kick it here for the next eleven games, unless it's absolutely impossible (read: unless my girlfriend is here...sadly she is not a baseball fan, though otherwise she's an angel).

Sens, sometimes I feel like I'm catching it on all sides.  Blasphemous imitators on the one board, and 'neer trolls on the other one.  It's tough to be just a humble terpin sometimes.   :wink:

Not as much as I've been missing the GUUUUUUZ this season!

Anybody want to speculate on what we're going to do with him?  Lopez seems like a keeper to me.
