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.

Take the whitesox out of the AL this year and we REALLY dominate the NL.

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

    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
    • So that means you ALMOST caught a fish!!   Real bummer!
    • I never use soap to clean the racks. Just put them on a hot grill for a few minutes and use a brush to get the majority off.    Hmmm, Gin flavored ham, mmmmmmmm.     
    • My local meat market will sell you one. They did for a friend of mine about a year ago. If you want to take a trip to Belle Plaine I can hook you up, but you should be able to find it at a meat market near you also.
