MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/23/15)

Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day!

5. Alcides Escobar (Kansas City Royals)

As soon as that was hit, we knew it was going to be a Texas hit. Well...except for Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar! It was a little bloop but Escobar chased it so well and times his elegant leap perfectly to catch the ball and get the out. The Royals beat the Mariners 4-3.

4. Lonnie Chisenhall (Cleveland Indians)

The ball was lifted to short right. Second baseman, Jason Kipnis was out and he had a very good reason for it. Lonnie Chisenhall calls for the ball and gets it on a diving catch. I am pretty sure he had one eye on the ball and the other on his second baseman to make everything so perfect. The Indians however fall to the Twins 4-2.

3. Cameron Maybin (Atlanta Braves)

We've seen a lot of elegant leaps today. But you have to give Maybin credit for his leap on the warning track, near the fence. The breaking ball was lined to center but he backed quickly and showed us that center field was his territory. Very nice play from the Braves centerfielder! The Braves beat the Mets 6-3.

2. Kyle Schwarber (Chicago Cubs)

It went high in the air but Schwarber never took his eyes off the ball as soon as it made contact with the bat. He had a quick start and times his dive perfectly to catch the ball on the warning track. I seriously don't know how he caught it. He went all out for it as you can see him slide all the way to the fence. Despite Schwarber's fantastic play, the Cubs fell to the Brewers 4-1.

1. Yogi Berra Tribute

Yes. Number one goes to Yogi Berra, as his life and career is celebrated around Major League Baseball. I would like to pay my respect to one of the greatest baseball players. He wasn't just a great baseball player though. He was a great man and he will truly be missed.

RIP Yogi Berra (1925 - 2015)

Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games!

I'm wearing my Mets hat proudly today
Am I sad? Yes. In fact, I'm heartbroken. But I'm also proud. The truth is, the Royals are the best team in baseball. And it's not close. They have all the pieces, and then some. They deserved this. I don't blame Terry Collins for leaving Matt Harvey in to start the 9th inning last night. As a matter of fact, I'm happy he did, even though it didn't work out. This was Harvey's game, Harvey's moment, and he had to have that chance to make it happen. He didn't, and I'll never forget it, but this is not Terry Collins' fault. It's not Harvey's fault, either. He pitched an absolutely masterful game. He was energetic and pumped up throughout, but he didn't let his emotions get in the way. He used them as fuel for 8 of the best innings I've seen anyone pitch, ever. He had the Royals completely on their heels throughout. It's not Murphy's fault, even though fingers will be pointed at the Mets' second baseman. He was a huge part of the reason the Mets were in the World Series in the first place. We have known for years what Murphy can do: he can get hot and make you love him, then make some bonehead plays that make you question everything. That's exactly what we saw in these playoffs. It's not Cespedes's fault. He was bad throughout the playoffs, but this is not one man's doing. I feel bad for the guy, because his performance in the playoffs is going to cost him millions and millions in potential contract money. I wish he could have stepped up more than he did - his baserunning, fielding and hitting were all detrimental to the team - but I'm still grateful for his presence on this team. My point is, this is no one's fault. Just like the Mets beat the snot out of the Cubs in the NLCS, the Royals outhustled, outsmarted and flat out outplayed the Mets in the World Series. I'm so happy for the ride these Mets gave me this season. I never expected to be still caring about baseball on November 1. Next year, the Mets will be coming for blood. I know that for a fact. This is just the beginning for this uber-talented young group. So say it with me. LET'S! GO! METS!
Blue Jays fight one back
Toronto needed one, and they got it. After dropping Games 1 and 2 to the Royals in Kansas City, the Blue Jays absolutely had to have Game 3 in order to save their season. Going down 3-0 would not have boded well for their chances. Early in the game, it looked like Kansas City was going to continue their hot streak - they scored in the top of the first to make it 1-0. However, the Blue Jays jumped on Johnny Cueto, scoring 3 runs in the second and putting up a six spot in the 3rd. Cueto has been all over the place recently. After being traded from the Reds to the Royals at the deadline in the summer, when he was one of the best pitchers in the league, the long-haired monster has struggled mightily since coming to Kansas City. He had a few good starts in earlier in the playoffs, but was rocked in Monday's game, putting up a line of 2.0 innings pitched, walking 4 and allowing 6 hits and 8 runs. Das not good. Blue Jays starter Marcus Strohman wasn't great - he allowed 11 hits over 6.1 innings - but he limited the damage to 4 runs allowed, which was enough on a night that the Blue Jays really had the bats going. So now the series is 2-1, still in favor of the Royals, with two more games in Toronto before the series heads back to Kansas City for Game 6 and Game 7. It's getting tighter, and tonight's game will go a long way to either watching Kansas City start to wrap things up or seeing Toronto level the thing at 2. Tonight, it's knuckeballer R.A. Dickey for Toronto vs. Chris Young for the Royals. I'm happy to see Dickey, an ex-Met, get a really key start in the playoffs. I'm rooting for the Royals in this series, but think Toronto gets the win tonight behind the veteran starter. What do you think? Will KC take a 3-1 lead tonight or can Toronto continue to fight? @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @SamuelRodriguez @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Link4TW @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @MalikLawary @KyleBerke
Back To The Future or the Curse of the Billy Goat?
Yes, the Cubs clinched a spot in the playoffs for the first time since 2008. Yes, They beat the Pirates in the National League wild card game. Yes, they clinched the NLDS against the St. Louis Cardinals. Now, they only have to beat the Mets to make it to the World Series. But there's something more to the Cubs' run for the World Series. As @LizArnone have mentioned in her card, "The Cubs Have Been Destined To Win The World Series Since 1989". In Back To The Future II time traveling Marty McFly ends up in 2015 with a holographic news story blaring the Cubs have just won the World Series. Thats something that hasn't happened since 1908! So can Back To The Future II beat break the famous Curse of the Billy Goat? The Curse of the Billy Goat was placed on the Chicago Cubs when Billy Goat Tavern owner, Billy Sianis was asked to leave the World Series game against the Detroit Tigers at Wrigley Field because his pet goat's odor was bothering other fans. As he was leaving the game, Sianis said, "Them Cubs, they ain't gonna win no more." And yes, the Cubs haven't won a World Series since 1908 nor have they been to one since 1945. The Cubs have been amazing this year so far under the leadership of manager, Joe Maddon. Even though they're two games down in the NLCS right now, they still have a chance to make a comeback and appear in their first World Series since 1945. But wait. Did you know that the goat that was forced to leave along with Billy Sianis was called Murphy? And.... Daniel Murphy, the hot-hitting Mets infielder, who was also the NLDS MVP when the Mets faced the Dodgers, hit a monster home run against Cubs' ace Jake Arrieta. Coincidence? Well, I'll leave it up to you to decide! Who do you think will come on top on this one? 1. Back To The Future II 2. The Murphy Brothers: Murphy the Goat and Daniel Murphy
Mets fans are calling for the heater
For the first two games of the series, it seemed as if the Mets outsmarted themselves. They got intimidated by the Royals' reputation for hitting fastballs, so Matt Harvey and Jacob deGrom - both of whom have outstanding fastballs that are difficult for anyone to hit - went away from their fastball. deGrom and Harvey were not beaten because the Royals attacked their fastballs. They were beaten because they hardly threw their best pitch in the first place. deGrom, who usually throws something like 65% fastballs, threw only about 35% heaters in his Game 2 loss. This is the World Series. You can't be too cute. You have to rely on what got you here. For the Mets, it's in large part their starters' fastballs. So now analysts and fans alike have been calling on Noah Syndergaard, Game 3's starter for the Mets, to do one thing early and often: PUMP THE HEATER ! It's better to go down swinging, being the team that we have been all season, rather than to limp out because we got outsmarted, right? I know Syndergaard doesn't ever look like he feels pressure, but tonight there's going to be lots of it. It's as simple as this: the Mets need Syndergaard to save their season. So, with that said, it's time for Terry Collins to advise his young starter to go in with the wheels already off. Syndergaard has one of the hardest and most brutalizing fastballs in baseball. Let him use it. Often. The Royals have attacked the Mets for the first two games of the series. Let's get them back in Game 3 and attack them with a crushing fastball and some good, old-fashioned HOME FIELD ADVANTAGE! Citi Field is ready. I'm ready. Are you? @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @DonnaMelton @jokes @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @SamuelRodriguez @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Link4TW @DannyMoses @ClaySharko @Ravenwing92 @FromBlue2U @LemissaNicole @BossDominata @MalikLawary @KyleBerke @DerekGumtow @Straightshooter @Kirooken @TravisManning
MLB Top 5 Plays of the Day (10/04/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Starlin Castro (Chicago Cubs) It was a fair ball down the first baseline. But after Anthony Rizzo fumbled the ball, it looked like it was going to be a base hit. But Castro beautifully went to cover for Rizzo and tossed the ball the Dan Haren to get the out! The Cubs beat the Brewers 3-1 in their final regular season game. 4. Nick Noonan (San Francisco Giants) This one was skied shallow to center field. We saw something similar the night before so when Nick Noonan went for it, we knew magic was going to happen once again. He followed the ball nicely to make the catch! The Giants however fell to the Rockies 7-3 in their final game of the season. 3. Jose Ramirez (Cleveland Indians) It was hit deep second base, but Jose Ramirez followed the ball perfectly and spun around to make a perfect throw to first. He not only got the out, he also made it to the Top 5 Plays of the Day! The Indians beat the Red Sox 3-1. 2. Kris Bryant (Chicago Cubs) The superstar rookie is still on fire as he preps for his first ever Major League post season. Bryant made that smooth backhand catch and made a jump toss all the way to first to get the out! What was even more incredible was the fact that it was a no hopper. He also got a standing ovation from the fans. Again, the Cubs beat the Brewers 3-1. 1. Nolan Reimold (Baltimore Orioles) The ball was hit high into left-center field. The wind was carrying the ball further and further away from Reimold, but he wasn't going to give up. Just as the ball was about to hit the ground, Reimold dived and caught the ball! What a play by Reimold! The Orioles beat the Yankees 9-2 for their final game of the season. Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games! What was your favorite play of the day? @christianmordi @jeff4122 @ljk901023 @TessStevens @ButterflyBlu @superiorsl @Starbell808 @jokes @DonnaMelton @BEAUTYgirlARIEL @David19Flo23 @karencorchado @SamuelRodriguez @xitlalicordova1 @AndrewMaldonado @Shippudenguy21 @RosePark *If you guys would like to be tagged every time I upload a Top 5 Plays of the Day card, please let me know by commenting on the comments section below!
MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/11/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Rougned Odor (Texas Rangers) What a catch by Odor! Of course, the shift definitely helped, but that's what stats are for, right? Even Shin Soo Choo thought Odor wasn't going to make that catch. Look at him backing up Odor and getting ready to jump for the bounce. The Rangers are on fire and looking to clinch the division title from the Astros. And they also beat the A's 4-0. 4. Kyle Schwarber (Chicago Cubs) A Top Play-worthy play from another hot team, the Chicago Cubs! No fence is going to stop Schwarber from making an amazing play. What a nice over-the-shoulder running catch from the Cubs left-fielder to rob a potential double from Ryan Howard. The Cubs beat the Phillies 7-3. 3. Daniel Castro (Atlanta Braves) Diving play and a perfect throw on his knees by Daniel Castro! The Braves rookie, who's been spectacular so far, robbed a hit from Tejada. Castro also showed some skills at the plate collecting two hits. His team however lost to the Mets 5-1. 2. Michael Bourn (Atlanta Braves) Another great play from the Atlanta Braves and possibly one of the best catches of the year as well. Conforto hits one deep center but Michael Bourn makes the catch! I personally thought that was going over the fence, but the Braves' center fielder certainly didn't think so. Not to piss off any Braves fans, but again, the Braves lost this one 5-1. 1. Angel Pagan (San Francisco Giants) It doesn't look like the Giants are going to make the playoffs this year but Pagan is still on his a-game. Kemp certainly thought he hit his 22nd home run of the season, but no! Pagan robs Kemp's homer and leads the Giants to a 9-1 victory over the Padres. Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games! What was your favorite play of the day? @christianmordi @jeff4122 @ljk901023 *If you guys would like to be tagged every time I upload a Top 5 Plays of the Day card, please let me know by commenting on the comments section below!
I'm Ashamed of My Hometown
San Diego, get your shit together. Each year at the Padres stadium, Petco Park, the LGBT society in SD holds an event called "Out at the Park" that is meant to bring the community together for an evening of baseball. This year, Petco Park really, really screwed up. The San Diego Men's Gay Chorus was meant to sing the national anthem before the game to represent the LGBT community for this event. Their voices were never heard. The stadium let them take the field, and then as they were about to sing, a recorded female voice instead sang the anthem (which, if you've been to a Padres game, isn't something that happens - we always have live singing) The men had to walk off the field hearing people shouting profane, homophobic things at them. The Padres said it was a mistake, a technical error, a third party contractor, and that they were sorry. But that doesn't explain the other examples of mistreatment. Days prior to the game, the Padres organization told the performers that the chorus would have to pay for their tickets in order to sing. This is not something that happens, ever. If you perform the national anthem, you get to enter the park for free, DUH. Why did the Padres suddenly want this now? That would have cost the small organization thousands of dollars, and after dispute they were finally allowed in as performers. You can listen to their great voices here when they performed in 2015. It's a pity their voices weren't heard this year. Get it together Padres, you're a disappointment in baseball but don't be a disappointment to your entire community.
MLB Top Plays of the Day (09/16/15)
Here are your Top 5 Plays of the Day! 5. Francisco Lindor (Cleveland Indians) What a stop by Francisco Lindor! And the throw was perfectly timed and he even gave it a couple of bounces to make sure it arrived safely at first. It did hit the grass but he grabbed it very nicely and the Indians beat the Royals 5-1. 4. Mike Aviles (Cleveland Indians) Now two top plays from a third basemen two nights in a row! This time, Mike Aviles showed what it takes to defend a hot corner. He dived for it, caught it, and threw sidearm from his knees to get the out! That's what you call a Gold Glove caliber play. Again, the Tribes beat the Royals 5-1. 3. Ryan Goins (Toronto Blue Jays) When the ball passed Josh Donaldson, we all thought it was going to split through the infielders and become a base hit. Ryan Goins however wasn't going to let it get passed by him. This play reminded me of Jeter for a sec. Well, the Blue Jays crushed the Atlanta Braves 9-1. 2. Starling Marte (Pittsburgh Pirates) You may see this kind of play from an infielder from time to time, but you certainly don't see this from an outfielder that often. He got on that ball nicely, used the wall to gather himself, and he fired that ball to second to get Tommy La Stella out at second. Now last night was the 14th annual Roberto Clemente Day, and Marte pulled off a Clemente-esque play right there. The Pirates however fell to the Cubs 3-2. 1. Starlin Castro (Chicago Cubs) Last night's number one play goes to Starlin Castro! The potential winning run was on first but Castro wasn't going to let their division rival take this one. Castro caught that ball to make an amazing 4-6-3 double play in the bottom of the ninth. Castro's incredible play led the game to extras and the Cubs eventually won 3-2. Now that was your Top 5 Plays of the Day from last night's games! What was your favorite play of the day? @christianmordi @jeff4122 @ljk901023 @TessStevens @ButterflyBlu *If you guys would like to be tagged every time I upload a Top 5 Plays of the Day card, please let me know by commenting on the comments section below!

The Most Unfortunate Baseball Player Ever
It's official. Shelby Miller is the most unfortunate baseball player in the world. He extended his winless streak to twenty three games. He hasn't won a single game since his two-hit shutout against the Miami Marlins on May 17th. And last night, he recorded his 16th loss of the season, placing him in the number one spot with the most losses. He is also the only starting pitcher in MLB history to record 16 or more losses in a season with an ERA of 3.00 or better. And you know what the sad part is? His teammates haven't been too cooperative when he was the starting pitcher. The stats below show Miller's basic stats the past twenty-three games he's started and run support he received. IP = Innings Pitched / RA = Run(s) Allowed / RS = Run Support 6.0 IP 2 RA (RS: 2) 7.0 IP 1 RA (RS: 0) 4.1 IP 4 RA (RS: 1) 7.0 IP 1 RA (RS: 3) 6.1 IP 3 RA (RS: 1) 5.2 IP 1 RA (RS: 0) 7.0 IP 1 RA (RS: 0) 5.0 IP 4 RA (RS: 0) 6.1 IP 0 RA (RS: 0) 5.0 IP 5 RA (RS: 0) 6.0 IP 1 RA (RS: 0) 7.1 IP 1 RA (RS: 0) 6.0 IP 4 RA (RS: 1) 7.0 IP 2 RA (RS: 3) 5.0 IP 2 RA (RS: 0) 7.0 IP 1 RA (RS: 1) 6.1 IP 3 RA (RS: 3) 6.2 IP 4 RA (RS: 3) 7.0 IP 1 RA (RS: 0) 4.1 IP 7 RA (RS: 0) 6.0 IP 3 RA (RS: 0) 3.2 IP 4 RA (RS: 1) 6.0 IP 2 RA (RS: 0) *Over the course of twenty three games, he recorded 15 losses, an ERA of 3.65 (138 IP 56 Earned Runs) Looks like Shelby Miller doesn't have any friends....I mean what are the hitters doing when Miller comes out to pitch! I really do hope Shelby Miller ends his unlucky streak next time he starts and I'm not even a Braves fan!
