Pretty good welcoming committee waiting at home plate
How's this for some pitching? The #pirates have allowed 8 runs in their last 8 games, winning 7 of them. Back to back years in the playoffs
It's an October environment in late September at Dodger Stadium. Imagine what a playoff series between these two teams would be like.
Lance Lynn on the mound for the #cardinals on SNB. ERA since beginning of July is 1.89. reverse his call based on the replay. Oh boy. If all that is true, #royals have a beef.
According to on-field audio and @Ken_Rosenthal report, the play was not reviewable. But if I am understanding this, Larry Vanover seemed..
Replay shows #tigers did throw to 3rd for appeal. So they got it right. Still 1-1, 7th inning
Betcha this kind of play is covered more clearly in the 2015 replay guidelines.
Gotta assume Yost is arguing there was never an official appeal at 3rd. Ah, the nuances of replay….
Eugenio Suarez is the happiest guy in the ballpark after that call.
Justice is served. Perez called out. Run wiped out. Still 1-1. #tigers #royals
Never seen the 4 umps get together for another conversation after talking to New York
Why is this taking so long?
Good alertness by the #tigers dugout to notice Perez never went back to 3rd after the liner was caught. This should be a quick review
Uh oh, don't think Perez ever re-touched 3rd. We have a situation…. #royals #tigers
Wow, what a mistake by Suarez. Too casual on the exchange. E6 gives the #royals a 2-1 lead.
What in the world just happened? #tigers
Chris Sale is fantastic, but 58 fewer IP than Felix. He should get a ton of 2nd/3rd votes, but can't see putting him 1st. @metsmavs910
Great article by @jaysonst today on the NL MVP race.
Last Felix tweet - his ERA is his no-decisions this year is 1.89. That's insane. #thatsinsane
Not only should he win the Cy Young, it should be unanimous. He could easily have 21 or 22 wins, and be getting Kershaw-type recognition.
#royals will come up, as the home team, in bottom of 10th, trailing 4-2.
Also #royals still have to complete suspended game vs #indians. That will happen Mon in Clev before they play the regularly scheduled game..
So there is a real possibility that there could be games Mon after end of season in NL West, NL Central, and especially AL Central
Keep in mind if 2 teams tie for division championship, there is a one game playoff, whether loser would get in as wild card or not
Big one for us tonight in KC - #tigers and #royals, Verlander vs Vargas - monster game in the AL Central. 8 ET on espn2
Welcome back @gehrig38! Curt Schilling, who began his ML career with the #orioles in 1988, is back with us for our game in Baltimore tonight
In fact, the 6 best team ERA's post-ASB all belong to AL teams - #mariners, #rays, #orioles, #angels, #royals, #indians. Think about that.
the #orioles ERA since the ASB is 2.92, 3rd in the Majors, behind only the #mariners and #rays
The #orioles enter tonight's game with a magic number of 5. On verge of 1st AL East title since 1997.
ESPn research passes along that this Sun will be Derek Jeter's 71st appearance on Sunday Night Baseball, most by any player. A-Rod 2nd at 58
Chris Davis suspended 25 gms after reportedly testing positive for amphetamines. Will miss rest of reg season plus potentially 8 playoff gms
Great to hear @gehrig38 back on our conference call this morning. Schill will be back with me and Krukkie this Sunday in Baltimore
And I've goofed again - that's DET @ KC, not the other way around, next Friday.
The programming folks are picking up some extra games this month - we'll have KC@DET next Friday in addition to the Sunday nighted in STL
Congrats to Jose Altuve on hit #200. A guy who is truly worth the price of admission.
Heard this morning #jays starters have pitched 6+ IP in 17 straight starts.
Make that Wieters. Nice to get the daily typo out of the way early...
The #orioles deserve a ton of credit - Weiters out most of the season, CDavis having a down year, Machado out now, etc.
Alejandro De Aza launches a 2 run HR and the #orioles are up 2-0 in the 1st in Boston.
All those in favor of say, a 3 or 4-way tie for something at the end of the regular season, creating massive chaos….say aye #huntforoctober
The Dodgers are 20-4 in games Clayton Kershaw starts. Twenty and four.

My bad on Lobstein tweet - he struck out 10 Indians on Tuesday.
Get this: Buster Posey is 33/65 in his last 15 games with 7 home runs and 21 RBI.
Got a good graphic for tonight on Victor Martinez - players with 30+HR, fewer than 50 K's. Strong list.
Tim Hudson starts for SF tonight: 214-120 career, has never had a losing season, career #'s stack up well with some very impressive pitchers
We've got the #giants and #tigers tonight on SNB - SF is averaging > 8 runs/gm last 8 games.
I have no idea how it works, but the technology that shows whether the ball is in or out in tennis is really really awesome
