Nick Tropeano pitched 6.1 innings of 1 hit ball last night so it makes sense that he just got put on the DL with shoulder soreness and knowing the Angels he'll be done for the year.

Cincinnati are going to lose 110 games at least. Also, holy hell is the AL Central bad.

I love that the Tigers are in second place with a .448 win%. They're the only second place team that's under .500. The Tigers are terrible and so is the AL Central.

On pace for 75 wins if I did that math right?

Yeah that seems like a reasonable to good bet to get you second in this year's AL Central.

Every team in the AL Central is below .500 against teams outside their division.

Cleveland is above .500 only because it's the tallest midget.

He isn't a legit PBA player like Betts but I remember an interview he did he said he was a pretty consistent high 200s guy. Don't think hes ever bowled a 300 though.


If Betts has ever said 1 interesting thing in an interview before he's got Trout beat there too.

drat this sucks, I thought him getting pulled last night when he did was incredibly dumb and was hoping it wasn't health related. Barria will probably be the replacement, he's pitched well when he wasn't gassing himself out against Brandon Belt.

Angels starting pitching situation is a mess.

So, in a few weeks, i'm going on a little midwest baseball vacation, trying to get to a bunch of cities and stadiums i've still never been to. I'm getting to a game in Cleveland, Chicago, and Minneapolis. I'm sadly going to miss out on the Tigers and Brewers, but it sounds like I don't really want to go to those stadiums anyway.

So, what things should I be doing and what places should I be eating at in and around the Progressive/Wrigley/Target fields.

It's a long season, and this will all average out. That being said, we have to play the Astros like 30 more times and Cleveland gets a division with Minnesota, ChiSox, Detroit, and KC, so they may end up with a better record than us anyway.

The Nelson Cruz contract has been so so sooooooooo good for the Mariners.

Having experienced terrible offense from 2004 through about 2015, I have to say I vastly prefer rooting for a team with bad pitching and good offense instead of the other way around. This is fun, we're gonna lose a lot of games 10-6 but it's going to be a good time anyway.

And the Angels, don't forget them.

I guess the cold comfort is that we only have to play the Red Sox 6 times, right?

We're going to the Sunday night game, so we'll probably have to eat somewhere around or in the stadium. I'd say we're probably going to be looking at either pizza or some kind of meat place (that's the only two types of food Chicago has, right?)

Iím a fan of Pick Me Up cafe on Clark just south of Wrigley. Chicago Diner is a bit east and also has some good vegetarian options. A friend from my climbing gym manages Two-Hearted Queen, if youíre looking for local coffee options.

No see you don't understand, that's just part of the game and we need to run the risk of pitchers getting hurt while hitting because gently caress the DH.
