Hamels intentionally beaned Arenado up high. Arendao had to leave the game.
Buzzed the tower on Blackmon too.
Stopped watching after 8-0 but that doesn't sound like something Cole would do intentionally. Would like to see the video
Edit: Just saw the pitch... meh hit him in the elbow
Hamels just got plucked now.
Buncha Tony Sopranos in the cubs dugout
I can’t believe the guy who beaned rookie Bryce Harper for shits and giggles would throw at someone, either
Sorry if I haven't followed every bean ball in MLB history. Thanks for the info!
Apparently... I find the entire bean ball shit to be annoying and unnecessary. I don't belive Colorado tried to hit Kris Bryant in the head last year. I don't belive they tried to hit him twice last night. I didn't think they tried to hit Baez today either. Shit happens. But hitting Nolan and then hitting Cole back is some stupid fucking shit.
You should probably know Hamels' history before making that comment.
They drilled Bryant twice yesterday. Fuck em
I know his history as a Cub. Forgive me for not following him his prior 15 years in baseball. I'll do better and make sure to hold you to this standard on all players moving forward.
They also buzzed Baez near his head earlier in the game.
Just hate to see support of this kind of thuggery.
And Marquez drilled Bryant and Contreras at Wrigley last Thursday as well.
lol... Shitty ass Brach just hit Wolters
Wolters then steals 2nd and 3rd down 10-0 in the 9th. This is good stuff. Take that Cubs
Speaking of Cubs getting hit - this is pretty funny
I don't think any sane cub fans would ever complain if Rizzo got hit. He sits on the plate.
Seems more like "limit service time" to me
Double A call up for the #Miami Marlins, Jordan Yamamoto
The real vlad jr.
Looked like a slider to me
Yeah I'm not sure what the announcers called it. Just saw some clips during the MIL/HOU game. He had a few nasty looking off speed pitches ...
Not too bad kid
Yea good looking pitch, tight bite. Change up just wouldn't move that way. Itd go down or down and away.
whoa missed this earlier. i imagine this is a 10 day option and bring him back but
Could have just put him on 10 day IL and not cost him service time.
Verlander with a career high 15 K's through 7 IP. No walks
Astros and Brewers tied 3-3 in T8 on ESPN
baseball was a crazy sport back in the day
Oakland council backs state legislation to streamline approvals for A’s waterfront ballpark
The Oakland City Council unanimously voted Wednesday to support two state bills essential to the A’s plans to build a new stadium at Howard Terminal at the Port of Oakland.
The bills — SB293 and AB1191 — would streamline the process for the A’s to start building a privately financed ballpark, which would include affordable housing and commercial buildings.
The resolution was introduced by City Council members Loren Taylor and Nikki Fortunato Bas to ensure the city is part of the process as plans take form. It was passed by a 7-0 vote. Councilwoman Lynette Gibson McElhaney was excused.
“I think one thing is very true about Oakland: We all love our sports team,” Bas said at the meeting. “We want to make sure we make decisions that are in the best interest of Oakland today, as well as in the future.”
AB1191, written by Assemblyman Rob Bonta, D-Alameda, streamlines the permitting process for the new ballpark. The bill is expected to be voted on June 25 by the Senate’s Natural Resources and Water Committee.
SB293, written by Sen. Nancy Skinner, D-Berkeley, allows the creation of a new tax district in Oakland to cover millions of dollars in infrastructure costs. The bill will next be voted on by the Assembly’s Local Government Committee. A date has not been set yet.
More than 60 people spoke about the resolution at the City Council meeting. Some people encouraged the council to support the legislation, saying that the new ballpark would create housing and more jobs and ensure that the A’s would remain in Oakland.
“The A’s have been here when everybody else has jumped ship,” one woman said. “We have somebody here that wants to stay, invest in the community, continue being here. We need this baseball team.”
Others expressed concerns that a new ballpark would spur gentrification and displacement in West Oakland. Maritime industry representatives, who have been loud opponents of the new ballpark plans, spoke before the meeting on the steps of City Hall and said they would continue fighting against plans at Howard Terminal.
“We are not going to take this lying down and we are not going to take this without a fight,” said Keith Shanklin, the president at Local 34, which represents pile drivers. “This is our port.”
Dave Kaval, the president of the A’s, called the vote an important step in moving forward with plans for the 35,000-seat stadium that includes nearby housing and commercial developments on the Oakland Estuary near Jack London Square.
“We greatly appreciate the feedback of the council and members of the public who spoke” Wednesday, Kaval said. “We are grateful for the support of Sen. Nancy Skinner and Assemblyman Rob Bonta for our effort to build a new ballpark district at Howard Terminal that will be a model of green design, sustainable development and environmental justice reform.”
The City Council’s approval of the project, its infrastructure and financing plan will come at a later undetermined date. An informational report is scheduled for July 2 at the city’s Community and Economic Development Committee that will include preliminary information on the transportation plans for the project.
In April, Mayor Libby Schaaf told Kaval in an email that she hasn’t committed any tax dollars to the project. She said it is reasonable that the city would do a $200 million infrastructure deal for the A’s, as they did for the Raiders at the Coliseum in 2017. The deal would help cover costs for road and utility improvements.
In May, the Port Commission voted unanimously to approve a tentative exclusive negotiation agreement for the A’s that gives the baseball team four years to conclude an environmental impact report. The environmental impact report is expected to be completed by the end of the year, and then presented to the City Council and the port commission by early 2020. Kaval said the team hopes to be playing at the new stadium at Howard Terminal by 2023.
Cardinals are terrible and it's great
At least they won a Stanley Cup to take their mind off of it
Seeing a Giants starting lineup that bad is kind of a....drag.
Moustakas with a 2-run HR in T14 to put the Brewers up 5-3 on the Astros
his 21st HR of the year I believe they said
Astros only have 1 hit since the 4th, but still managed to hit into a few DPs since then.
Braves walk off on the Pittsburgh Pirates just before 1 AM ET
I'm biased cause he came through for me in fantasy yesterday, but the stuff looks real good. Check out the change up around the 40 sec mark ...
Also christened by PitchingNinja. What a debut!
He’s been the best prospect we got for yelich despite Harrison being ranked higher
I'm stashing him too. And have Caleb Smith
If/when we call up Gallen id suggest you jump on him ASAP
I wanted him but he got scooped a while ago. Basically take any MIA pitcher in that stadium it seems ....
The Glasnow/archer trade is still up for debate but we definitely won the cutch/Reynolds trade
Top 9 Giants hitters per FanGraphs WAR
Shaun Anderson (he's another pitcher)
Vogt (with 0.1 WAR)
What a talented group
That's a fun stat, but he probably needs to starting hitting for some kind of power to be a good MLB hitter, and that's probably going to come at the expense of that lovely percentage.
