They really need to re-evaluate how they hand out errors in Major League Baseball. Between Viciedo, Beckham and Konerko, Viciedo is the last one that should've received an error on that play, but it by default goes to him.

Actually, no, quite the opposite. But I still put all my energy and passion into it - which is draining.

It was supposed to be a day off tomorrow. I'd have said get Deduno out of there, put in your long reliever (Swarzak presumably) and think about whether to DL Samuel or what. But the Mets makeup game probably means Samuel has to gut it out a while longer.

Maybe we need to focus more on the reverse standings?


It's something to look at, but I'm not personally a fan of teams tanking, like they do in the lesser sports, somewhat in the NFL and quite openly in the NBA. Nor of rooting for that as an effect.

There is no tanking or crying in baseball.

Just got home and saw this on the box score: . Plouffe walked, R. Doumit to second, J. Willingham out at home

How did Willingham get out on a walk?

Wild-pitch-type play.

Ball 4 was a wild pitch - Willingham tried to come home.

Ah - thanks. I take it he probably did not break any speed records.

Woulda been, had anybody reached an extra base. :)
