Maybe this belongs in a new thread, Baseball Players in trouble.


bit of an odd story. Tbh I’ve watched him a couple times on his YouTube channel. He seems a bit of an odd character. Does seem like he may be in trouble though.

Milwaukee Brewers on an 11 game winning run, second-best in club ("franchise") history. That includes a comeback win against the Cubs last week when they were 7-0 after first inning (debutant pitcher lasted less than that one inning) and still won 15-7. Early days still but looking good this year!

Cubs haven't won since they no-hit The Dodgers, eight losses in a row.

Make that nine.

dont. Turned into an absolute embarrassment. I think in about 6 of those we’ve taken the lead also.
One game we were 7-0 up and still lost 15-7 or something.
Last night 1-0 up lost 2-1

don’t know what’s happened to the Cubbies but a shake up is needed if we want to compete

It was close until the top of the eighth inning.

The new owners have bought on the cheap. The whole thing has gone tits up! I mean look at Schrawber, we let him go and he just hit 15HRs in 18 games or something? and signed Sogard and Joc Pederson :(

Pederson's alright.
I was sorry to see him leave The Dodgers.

Cubs lose their 11th straight game.

Jake Arrieta gives up a Grand Slam in the first inning without getting an out. He goes 1.2 innings with 55 pitches.

We lose 15-10.

good. Lord.

You know the good thing about having the games overnight is that when i wake up, i close my left eye and navigate onto my phone to the MLB "at bat" app and find the "videos" from the game and then watch the highlights without knowing the result.

This morning, after watching the first 45 seconds, i turned it off :D

I knew that quite recently no Padre had done it but Matt Kemp was the first Padre to hit for the cycle in 2015, They certainly took their time to do it the first time. Myers did it in 2017 so Cronenworth is their 3rd but they have yet to do it at Petco Park

These Baseball players are so sensitive.

I went to a fight and a baseball game broke out.

Very interesting youtube vid on the Montreal Expos.
That players strike really killed their best season. We went the season before in 93 but it was a poor crowd that night vs the Reds, however that was mainly due to it coinciding with part of the Canadiens successful Stanley Cup win.
I certainly recall that darned mascot leaping on us 🤣

Max Scherzer?

Yes please.

Dustin May out for the season.
Kershaw on the IL
Bauer out indefinitely, because of alleged off field antics.

Just worried what we'd have to give up.

I've got to admit that I've got mixed feelings about this. But it surely hurts a bit.

Yankees pitcher Domingo German threw a no-hitter through 7 innings, against The Red Sox, but Boston score 5 runs in the eighth to win 5-4.

12 straight defeats for my beloved Texas Rangers! .. worst losing streak for 39 years 😟
BTW - If the "Indians" to rename themselves for an "offensive" name, shouldn't be a team renamed as well, that shares a name with a native American slaughtering special unit from the 19th cent. ? Just asking for a friend... :unsure:

Rizzos gone. My favourite Cubs player forever. Been a fan since approx 2013 and this is the first year we’ve been a “selling” team on trade deadline. Man it’s sucks.

Feels like a Ron Noades asset stripping kind of 24hrs. Look. I know baseball works differently but Imagine losing Norgaard, Toney, Canos, Jensen and Pinnock within 24hrs for some B teamers. Urgh.

Don't even get it. A rebuild was not neccessary for the Cubs.

Since the WS win we have been regressing pretty badly. Some of this makes sense to get the prospects but not bloody literally everyone. Rizzo should have been a Cub for the rest of his life.

Phillies on fire at the moment, currently on an eight game winning streak, and on top of the NLE.

Tyler Gilbert of the Arizona Diamondbacks threw a no hitter against the San Diego Padres, in his first Major League start.

The Cubs’ losing streak hit 11 games Sunday, marking their second 11-game skid this season. It’s the first time that’s happened in franchise history.

Jake Arrieta has finally been released.

The new owners better know what they're doing.

Signed with The Padres, are they that desperate for pitching?

WHAT?!! Are they mad. He’s terrible.
We’ve given him so many chances and the last game for us he gave up 7 in the first inning.

Orioles snapped their 19 game losing streak by beating The Angels.


Padres and Dodgers involved in the longest game of the season so far, which took sixteen innings and nearly 6 hours.

Dodgers and Giants tied at the top of the NL West, and open up a three game series in SF tonight, the last time they will meet this season.

The Milwaukee Brewers throw a combined No-Hitter, against Cleveland, the Ninth this season, and the third time The Indians have been No Hit this season.

The Brewers are setting all kinds of franchise records this year. The pitching has been superb all year, the offense more of a slow burn but now looking like real prospects to go deep in October.
