Game day said he was out 4-3, not 9-3

That certainly is better. That's not worth complaining about.

Did Arcia just get thrown out at first from a hit to right field?

I know that happens, but... come on!


2nd baseman got it deep in the hole and made a great play, it was close.

Hawk is off sick, Chicago broadcast much more tolerable. I'd say get well soon......but I don't care.

I can't get mlb.tv for the game so am listening to the radio.

Just in case anyone has not noticed, we now have a new moderator. I won't mention any names, but her avatar looks like a sunset and she knows how to bake apple crisps.

Congrats CTTF.

How many game thread regulators are now moderators? Is this some sort of clique thing going on here?

I know it's not part of the game plan but the ability to strike out batters might have come in handy that last at bat.................just sayin.

There is no such thing as a game thread regulator and this is not a clique thing. ChiTown was selected based on her overall body of work, including posts in other threads.

I would add that people who are on TD a LOT tend to participate in game threads a lot, and a key factor in selecting moderators is that we look for people who spend a lot of time on TD in general, not just game threads.

I seem to accidentally struck a nerve here. I am aware that CTTF posts on other threads as well, and continues to add to the quality of this fine site that enjoy immensely.

Once again, my lighthearted attempt to make jokes has failed. I will try to work on this and improve in the future.

Burton! Two strike outs in a row to get out of the bottom of the 8th!

What a relief.
