Bottom of the 8th, 2 on, 2 out, Brewers losing 5-2 to the Dodgers. Jansen gets the call for the 4-out save, Thames gets the call to pinch hit. Thames goes yard on a 3-2 pitch and ties it at 5.

Cody Bellinger returns the favor with a 2-out solo home run in the 9th off Josh Hader. 6-5 Dodgers.

Just a quick thought on the early part of the season, I've been surprised by the start of five teams so far:

Mariners -- Tore apart a team that won 89 games last year. Traded off most of their best players...yet seems to be better than before (and they were pretty good), leading the league in most categories.

Yankees-- A dozen guys on the injured list, just about all of their big guns out of action and yet they are over .500 on the year. That's what depth, a minor league system and a **** load of money will do for you.

Rangers -- Expected to stink yet they are 12-8 (I think) at this point. Pretty impressive given the talent.

Padres -- Guess the Machado / Tatis situations have jump started these guys.

Tigers-- Rebuilding, have canned a lot of guys, yet they are right at .500. Interesting in how they are approaching 'rebuilding" / "tanking" compared to some other clubs.

Tonight in Pittsburgh Zach Burdi's brother Nick appeared to suffer a serious arm injury after getting hammered by Diamondback batters, it kind of reminded me of what happened to Sox relief pitcher Jim Kern in Texas the second game of the 1983 season.

The arm looked literally like it blew apart.

Hope the kid is OK but he was in tears.

I believe he had a TJ already, this time looks like a bicep blow up.

Sucks for the kid.

Just saw the video, as he released the pitch the arm seemed to "buckle" (the best word I could think of) and he immediately bent over and fell to the ground in a lot of pain.

The way he was getting hit around by Arizona something may have been wrong for awhile with him and it finally gave out.

Arrieta's take on their mini-spin down: https://www.mlb.com/news/bryce-harpe...-at-citi-field


He's a nice leader. There other interesting tidbits involving this incident too.

They sold their 2 top relievers for top dollars. Their current guys in the BP are doing well, including Brennan whom Rick Hahn took a nap on AGAIN (when will he ever be held accountable).
They brought in Narvaez who is hitting at a .913 OPS.
They lose Segura but replaced him with the solid average Tim Beckham...but they essentially added Edwin Encarnacion in that trade too.
They got Domingo Santana for a 4th OF (Where was Hahn when the Brewers were peddling him?).
And the Mariners pocketed prospects in the process.
And they didn't trade any prospects for 33 year old veterans.
They did a lot of selling high.
That's how you retool a team.
Now compare that to Rick Hahn's offseason...

Some good news for Burdi apparently it is not a torn bicep or UCL.

In fairness to Rick and you know I'm not his biggest fan, who did the Sox have that frankly other teams would actually want and would be willing to pay a good / high price for in return?

Basically the Sox roster has been a bunch of one dimensional four A stiffs. outside of the rebuild pieces and they weren't going anywhere (nor should they have been).

Perhaps you could offer up some examples.

Jayson Stark on the death of the no-hitter. Last year set a record for pitchers pulled with a no-hitter going, and this year has been no different.

Corey Kluber fractures his arm after being hit by a line drive.
http://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/2...ctures-forearm


He's 33 and has a 5.80 ERA in seven starts this season. Are we still mad that the Indians didn't pull the trigger on trading him this past offseason for top prospects?

I thought this was the Non-Chicago In Game Discussion thread, not yet another Sox management-bashing/Rick Hahn is the WORST.GM.EVER thread. Silly me.

Mike Fiers throws the 300th no-hitter.

A couple of nice defensive plays in this one including a leaping catch to rob Votto of a HR.
