At the ML level, I'd be perfectly fine with .340/.570 OBP/SLG split

Yes, I could live with a 3rd baseman that has a .930 OPS

Haha I can't believe people actually call it footie. I turned on the game for a couple minutes and there was so many hipsters in the crowd. It was hilarious.

The Diamonbacks went completely classless tonight.

Ian Kennedy, who leads the league in HPB, hits Puig in the face.

Grienke then plunks Miguel Montero in the back.

Should have ended there.

Then Kennedy does and hits Grienke up in the shoulder, near the head and it goes off.

If you hit a star player in the face you should expect some retaliation.

Yeah, that's Seattle for ya.

Game was awesome. Great to see Jozy rolling now that they've finally figured out a way to get him the ball where it matters.

If they wanted to hit Grienke then fine, but they AGAIN threw at the head of a Dodger. That can't happen. I'm glad the Dodgers went after them.

Jozy is beasting right now. I am starting to like our attack with Jozy and Dempsey up top, Zusi and Fabian Johnson on the wings and Bradley and Cameron in the middle. Its a shame our back 4 is total dog crap.

The Chicago Cubs and Ian Stewart will try to find some common ground in ending their relationship, but in the meantime, Stewart will be suspended without pay for his critical tweets of the organization that included the third baseman claiming the team "might as well release" him. The two sides are talking about an agreement that would allow Stewart to leave the organization and give the Cubs some economic relief from over $1 million left on his contract that called for $2 million in 2013. "Sure, those conversations are taking place," Cubs president of baseball operations Theo Epstein said.

I know, never liked Stewart and noticed him being vocal about things before that I didn't agree with him speaking about, now this, just a complete WTF moment. Last contract like that he is gonna get, what a slug, see ya.

Sox have canceled tonight's game due to weather.

Hoping the Fire do as well. 2 buddies of mine and I would be going if there wasn't a game a million times more important on at the same time.

That's my biggest issue for sure.

They didn't need to hit Greinke, it was already 1 batter hit vs 1 batter hit.

But the fact that they threw up high again. Kennedy hit 2 guys in the head in 1 game, he should be gone for a month and better wear a football helmet next time he hits against the Dodgers.

Castro is hitting under .240 entering today? Damn, had no idea he was struggling that bad at the plate. That's pathetic.

How so? Is there really that large a difference between A and A+ ball?

Yes, probably the 2nd biggest leap in the minors (A+ to AA the biggest)

Ian Kennedy gets, 10 games, so basically 2 starts for inciting the brawl and throwing not once but twice at the heads of opposing players? Makes sense, did Shannahan help them figure out how long they should be?

You literally can't pitch a better or more dominant game and not at least pick up a win but actually lose. How does a pitcher not give up an earned run but lose?

Sale is 3rd in ERA, 3rd in Whip, top 10 in K and is 5-5

Cubs fans really need to just leave en masse when Marmol's put in. Enough of this nonsense, we're not getting a good trade offer for him and all he does is cost is games.
