MLB today had a discussion on Seaver and Brock, discussing how linked their careers were, noting among other things that nobody pitched to Brock more often than Seaver and nobody hit against Seaver more than Brock.

I could not quickly find what batter/pitcher combination had happened most frequently.

Anybody have a good way to find that?

there's a custom search function on baseballref.com but I think its subscription-based.

Ernie Broglio

My Macgregor "Ernie Broglio" glove was probably my most important possession from age 9-13
Mine was an inherited from my dad Bobby Shantz glove.

WTF is going on with the Ys?

I saw they were up 6-2 against the Buffalo BJs and figured game over.

But the BJS put up a 10 spot.

This last 3 weeks they can't get out of their own way.

They were huge favorites to meet the LADs in the WS, and they might, but WTF is going on?

I may have to start paying attention and swap the Sox for schadenfreude.

Far as I could tell, the point at which Judge's stay on the injury list got extended the team fell apart.

  A seven-game regular-season series between the Phillies and Marlins will be played over the next five days in Miami. Four of those games will be seven innings as part of double-headers.

According to Jayson Stark the last time there were teams engaged in a regular season 7-game series was in 1967 at Wrigley Field with the Cubs vs the Mets.

And the "Last Phillies 7-gamer with a winner in all 7 games: 8/2-6/1930 - in Boston vs. the Braves!"

Philly has played 54 games and led in 47 of them.

Clearly the problem has been in the pen. Once the injuries began to add up, you'd think they're dead. But, here they are. Marlins I predicted to compete.

I will agree with you banks if and only if the Indians do not win the series. If they do win it all than fuck you and your asterisk.

boz

Don't shoot the messenger, I was just an early adopter of what seemed obvious about a 60 game season, with so many other rule changes, as to dictate the use of an

*.

As to... "only if the Indians*..."

Who?

* Aren't they the team to be named later

best of luck in the tourney

The #Phillies (2 games under .500) have now scored first in 41 of their 59 games.

The Dodgers (24 games over .500) have scored first in 38.

Record when scoring first:

Dodgers 29-9
Phillies 21-19

A GM once told me: “When your bullpen stinks, your team stinks.”


End of story.

The pen is so leaky the entire crew needs to wear Depends.

It looks like Grady Little Syndrome has kicked in again at Fenway as Ron Roenicke is let go. Ron wasn't as good a cheater, it seems, as CHEATING CORA:

 

“As manager, he showed poise and leadership in navigating an extremely challenging year. We are grateful for all of his contributions in our uniform.”

Roenicke replaced Cora in February after Cora and Boston split following MLB’s report on the Astros’ cheating during the 2017 season, when Cora was Houston’s bench coach. Roenicke had previously served as bench coach under Cora. Cora was later banned by MLB for one season.

Multiple reporters added fuel to Cora’s potential return on Twitter Sunday. MLB Network’s Jon Heyman reports Red Sox ownership “was among [Cora’s] biggest supporters. So do not rule out a return.”
 

Yep. They love to cheat up there in New England.

Cora really should have been banned for life, but I guess his Boston connections saved his ass.
