Meme Sunday 10/24: Cross ‘Em Out and Put a ‘K’

The Atlanta Braves have defeated evil and saved baseball Last night in game 6 of the NLCS the Atlanta Braves were up 4-1 over the Dodgers in the 5th. My cell was already buzzing with messages like, ‘it’s over’, and ‘Braves will win it.’ But I was compelled to not respond with glee or confirmation. My superstitions got the best of me. After all, The Dodgers have been known to be a good team that can come back from such a deficit and bring sadness and tears to us all. But then the game was over. Just like that the Braves won game 6 of the NLCS and advanced to the WS. It...

Happy Birthday Chris Colabello

Happy Birthday Chris Colabello

Chris Colabello turns 38 today. The Blue Jays picked up Chris off waivers from the Twins before the 2015 season. In two seasons with the Twins, he hit .214/.284/.364, with 13 home runs in 114 games. So we can be excused for not being excited about a 31-year-old who could play first or DH but who couldn’t hit well enough to make anyone want to give him time at either spot. Chris had an excellent spring training. And Michael Saunders wrecked his knee on a sprinkler head in Dunedin’s training fields, and we suddenly needed someone for the outfield. Also, Dalton Pompey didn’t...

These Yankees pitchers can take the next step in 2022

Wendell Cruz-USA TODAY Sports Improving control, developing a third pitch, or just staying healthy: these hurlers only need a couple of things to break out. The Yankees had a strong pitching season overall in 2021. They finished fourth in Wins Above Replacement (WAR) with 22.3, and had the sixth-lowest ERA with 3.76 even though they experienced many significant injuries. However, there were still some disappointing performers, and others who impressed but couldn’t contribute more for one reason or another. These five hurlers have the tools to succeed, but need one or...

Today in Blue Jays History: Jays win their first World Series

Steve Russell/Toronto Star via 29 years ago today The Blue Jays won their first World Series. It always seems that our first World Series win isn’t as celebrated as our second one, likely because it didn’t end in a walk-off homer. But it did end with Joe Carter jumping up and down. Game 6 was a 4-3 win 11 inning win. We were up 2-1 going into the bottom of the 9th, and Cito brought Tom Henke into the game. We had high hopes. Henke had pitched in 8 playoff games that year and hadn’t given up a run. This time he gave up a leadoff single to Jeff Blauser. Damon...

Bettmann Archive This photo caught it in the middle of being changed. This will be a different kind of historical photo article. In this case I don’t need to sleuth the date, because it came with the caption supplied with the photo: When the umpire yells “play ball” to open Chicago Cubs’ 1961 season here 4/14. the famed green vines clinging to Wrigley Field’s outfield fence will add their color to the occasion. Here, veteran ground keeper Albert Gargulo carefully prunes the greenery in left field 4/3, as other workmen paint huge scoreboard (background). At the...
