99-72 AL DOMINATES NL

12 posts in this topic

The AL is once again showing it's not the "junior circuit",,, the AL simply has better baseball than what the hapless NL brings to the plate. Simple as 99-72. Look at the last few years of Interleague play-- just about the same winning %.

A guy can argue DH, but I don't buy it, for it forces AL teams to have better pitching and it really shows in head-to -head action in NL parks. also see All_star games.

The AL seems to have much better closers--- Rivera,K-ROD,Paplebon,Nathan,JEnks,Street,Percival-- I really think thats as big a differnce as any.

Once again--- the AL dominates in last nights games. 10-4.

Tally is now up to 109-76. This is like a team winning 96 games in the reg season. Nice to see Reyes for the Twins get the win on throwing ONE pitch!!!!!

Once again-- closer and long relief ruin it for the Nl. Hoffman for SD,, Arizona giving up 4 runs to the red sox in the 8th and on and on and on.... NL may have the starters, but they really lack in the late innings.

And this wk-end--- even being a HARDCORE Twins fan,,, GO WHite Sox agst the cubs. That town needs a dose of reality,, the best team in town plays on the south side, and has for over 100 years.

ABTC-- Anybody But The Cubs.

Whoaa check yourself Mudcutter my banged up Cards took care of Detroit after taking 2 of 3 from the Red Sox. Pujols is back today I hope. Kyle Lohse nickname is HUGE... No starter in the NL is hotter than Lohse, who is 6-0 with a 2.09 ERA over his past seven starts. Who da thunk it...

well,, Dumptroit got the best of the Cards on Wed night. Kyle Lohse proves once again he can't get it done in the MAJOR league-- the AL. That's why the Twins got rid of him--- he seems to do allright facing the pitcher every 9thAB, however.

And for this Wk-end,,, Go white sox over the only team in major league history to lose 3 consecutive games (and elimanated) in the playoffs in their last 4 playoff adventures--- 1984-1998-2003-2007 That's 4 MAJOR choke jobs,,, and another is on the way--- you can put that on the board.

Go Mud Go

Go Mud Go

Hey Chicago What Do you Say

Mud is going to lead the way!!!

Mud,

That is a little inside humor that Geno will appreciate. It is a take off on a Cubs song.

Got to love Mud's wisdom.

Windy

    • It was Trump who made the claim that the RNC was "crooked and rigged", and went on to get the nomination anyway. But it was the DNC and the RNC who made the 15 percent polling rule for third party candidates to enter the debates after Perot made both major party candidates look foolish in the 1992 debates. So obviously, "crooked and rigged" is only a problem for Trump when he perceives it not to be working in his favor.  
    • Yes it will, it's almost impossible to kill horseradish.
    • Haha! Can't find a loss on the schedule.
    • Lots of pressure in the Little Falls area. First time hunting in the area. Most of the "hunters" in the area seemed to subscribe to the show up right at shooting light and set up just up or down river from someone with decoys out, then call wildly and blindly while pass shooting birds. We pulled the plug on our Saturday sit only an hour in when our boat had steel shot hit it the second time.  We did enjoy ourselves though spending the rest of Saturday snooping around a hard to get to public slough. Then Sunday  we worked a 12-mile stretch of river and scouted up some new water for future hunting.  Lots of fun, can't wait to see how the rest of the season turns out. 
    • If I choose not to dig the horseradish, will it keep growing next year? 
    • That's funny, I was just looking at airplane tickets..... 
    • It could be said that Trump is actually a third party candidate, who is taking on the two establishment parties one at a time rather than both at once like Gary Johnson.      Sort of like a fight against two opponents.   Take out one first then fight the other.   Trump was pretty clearly not a part of the Republican Party establishment when he declared his candidacy.   He was opposed by all of the other candidates as well as the Party apparatus.    But now they have lost and are faced with losing their influence if they don't support the nominee.   Gary Johnson, on the other hand, chose to go the traditional third party route and take on the whole establishment at the same time, an endeavor that is doomed.  Even Ross Perot or Ralph Nader couldn't pull it off.   It was Trump who had the the insight to realize that he could inject himself into the cluster thing that was the Republican nominating process and with his money, media savvy, and recognition get the nomination.  That's how it has to be done these days.   And it may have been a unique opportunity.    Next time the Republicans will probably change their process to be rigged like the Dems did after the McGovern debacle, especially if Trump loses.    
    • that one got by me.  Missed the metasarcasm.
    • I have a couple of spots where scrapes are opened up every year by opening weekend bow in mid Sept, they aren't easy to find but they are out there.
    • I think it might would have worked better if that tree in the picture would have not fallen in front of the rub.   also I had a fair amount  of does and fawns check it and lick it.
