I know Koji has always been a very good reliever, but this season he's having, especially the 2nd half has been absolutely unbelievable.

He hasn't allowed a run since July 6th and hasn't allowed and earned run since June 30th. That is a span of 31.2 innings and has allowed a total of 10 base runners during that span. He hasn't even allowed a single base runner the past 10 innings he's pitched, he has just been amazing.

Thanks to the Pirates for sweeping Texas. The A's have a great opportunity this week to put some major space between themselves and Texas if they can take care of Minny before a 3 game set at Arlington.

As for the Sox, not only are they running away with the East but they have a solid lead for HFA throughout the playoffs as of now. They might just be the most complete team in the AL and I think their consistency all season has shown proof of that fact.

The thing I love the most about the Sox is its a different guy every single night coming up huge. Tonight, Mike Carp with the pinch hit grand slam in the 10th to win it. The amount of depth this team has is really amazing.

MLB Now cut to Detroit this afternoon and there was Leyland showing Johnny Roids how to play left field.

Not sure how I feel about that. He can't be any worse than the revolving door of corpses that have been out there the past few years; right?

He has a Red Sox relief pitcher Record for most batters retired in a row with 34, after pitching another perfect inning and picking up a W last night. I believe MLB record for most consecutive hitters retired by reliever is Bobby Jenks with 40, if I remember correctly.

Rangers refuse to give runs to darvish and are now 5.5 out of the divsion

Quote:
The only other American League pitcher with three 1-0 losses in a season since the advent of the designated hitter in 1973 was Dave McNally for Baltimore, in the initial season with the DH.

Darvish now has 4 1-0 losses and hasn't had a run scored while on the mound for 16 consecutive innings

There's two ways to look at this, and I have a foot on both sides, even as a Braves fan.

First, you try to play the game the right way. You especially try to do so when you're a) a rookie and b) are 30+ games under .500. Redmond said it best; who are you showing up? You're one of the worst teams in baseball and you're acting like that? Give me a break. You aren't showing up anyone but yourselves.

Conversely, what Fernandez did was pretty tame IMO, and I understand it. When you get the kind of familiarity divisional opponents get, play them 4 nights in a row, get owned by them all year, AND you're a super competitive young man, OF COURSE emotion is gonna get the better of you sometimes. Not only that, but Justin Upton has strutted probably 10 more HR this year worse than that, you don't hear anything about that because the Braves are a winning team and Upton has presumably "earned" the right to show up opposing pitchers. Similar situation happened earlier this year when Harper admired a bomb then got drilled next AB (another situation where I didn't think Harper was in the wrong at all). So it's obvious the Braves are very touchy about this sort of thing.

To me this was a totally overblown issue. Both sides have a point; move on.

I get acting like you've been there before but I don't understand when pitchers get pissed after giving up a HR and drill the guy. How about you ****ing strike him out next time. It's one thing like the Grienke-Kennedy situation when it's retaliation for a purposeful hit though.

Rangers are not a terrible offense in general but what is it that turns an average to above average offense into an historically bad one when Darvish is on the mound???
