I wonder if Evvie felt any compassion with the Nats humiliation of the Mets last night.



I died.

I mean, I've complained about our pitching, but that was just too much!

I was glad I wasn't there.

JOSH -

Just a heads up....

This account, and others that end with "phome" and all listed as "Male, Age 39" in their profiles, are spambots.  Don't know if you have the power to delete them, but you might save a lot of mopping up down the road if you can.  I'm a web admin elsewhere on the web, and am familiar with these.  Also, if you want to pass this along:  threads that were inactive for years, and are now empty, are spam magnets.  If they are thinned a bit, or just locked, it will save some grief.  Or we can keep waiting for that magical day that Latin American Literature and Pets comes back to glorious life.  "My dog has no nose..."

I will be cleaning up the threads regularly. If/when I get the ability to ban them and their IPs, I will do that, too, but thus far it is not an option.

Porcello with a gem.

brings to mind Pedro's 1-hitter (Chili Davis dinger) of '99

I don't remember the earlier game, but Pedro was Pedro and when he threw a game like that, while it was appreciated it was not quite as surprising as seeing "Cy" Porcello do it.

A lovely game to see. I wonder what tomorrow will bring.

The Pedro game was the best game I've ever seen a pitcher pitch, with the Chili Davis hr (RF-yankee stadium) the only hit Pedro gave up that night.
17ks no walks.plunked Knobby.

Porcello not nearly as overpowering, but very efficient, and just throwing strikes.

real nice game.

The New York Daily News made this observation about Chase Adams' start tomorrow at Fenway:
Quote
The Red Sox’ powerful lineup, which leads the majors in OPS (.796) is a tough first assignment in the big leagues for any pitcher, let alone one making his big league debut.

Their editors must work in the Department of Redundancy Department.

I've seen lots of no-hitters, but I've never seen a better pitched game, nor a more dominant performance, than Pedro's when he pitched against the Ys in '99.

This is probably the most amazing pitching performance I can remember having seen. It wasn't a complete game or close to it, because it was a relief appearance in the 4th, but it was the guttiest and most dominating, especially under the circumstances.

I've probably seen better complete games - the no-hitter against the Red Sox this season was mighty dominant.

But Pedro, with nothing over 90mph available, with those 6 innings of no hit ball just sticks in a way few other games ever have stuck with my feeble memory.

Yanks need to do everything now to set up for the wild card game, including figuring out who they want to pitch

Right now without any doubt it is TANAKA, if they are thinking straight

I'm excited to see ADAMS, who I would have taken as a Met - today.
