    ALL TIME RECORD REACHED Most PITCHERS Used in a Season

    On September 24, 2021, the Baltimore Orioles tied the 2019 Seattle Mariners by playing their 42nd pitcher during a single season, tying the American League and Major League records. The Orioles claimed Joey Krehbiel on waivers off of the Tampa Bay Rays, and called him up before the game last night. Joey entered the game in the bottom of the seventh, with the Orioles clinging to a 4-3 lead. Joey gave up a single to right field by Isiah Kiner-Falefa before retiring Andy Ibanez to end the inning. Joey retired Adolis Garcia on a ground out to third to start the eighth inning before being replaced by Cole Sulser, earning a hold for the evening, The Orioles ended up scoring one in the eighth for a 5-3 lead, before giving up 5 runs in the top of the 9th to lose 8-5. The Los Angeles Angels and Chicago Cubs crept one game closer to the record. Joe Madden brought in AJ Ramos for his first Major League appearance of the season., AJ was called up on Thursday, and pitched the final two innings of the Angels 6-5 loss, recording a strikeout and not allowing a baserunner during his 18 pitch outing. Meanwhile, Joe's former player David Ross brought in shortstop Sergio Alcantara to record the Cubs final out in their 12-4 Game 2 loss to the Cardinals. Those are the three updates since Wednesday. Number of Hitters used (1 + plate appearance) 53 MLB Record - Tied (Current NL Record 53 (2006 Washington Nationals) & Current AL Record 53 (1915 Philadelphia Athletics)) (50) Four way 2021 Tie: Chicago Cubs, Miami Marlins, New York Mets, Los Angeles Dodgers Pitching Standings through September 24th (All teams 2021 except for the 2019 Seattle Mariners): (42) 2021 Baltimore Orioles & 2019 Seattle Mariners (All time MLB and AL record) (41) Arizona Diamondbacks & New York Mets (Co-Current NL Recordholders) & Tampa Bay Rays (40) Los Angeles Angels (39) Chicago Cubs & Los Angeles Dodgers (38) Toronto Blue Jays

    Cease leaves game after comebacker hits pitching arm

    Hope it doesn't bruise too much. I would guess all the treatments will attack bruising quickly in MLB.

    Blackout is Back for Soxtober

    Thought it was cool how Kenny called for the blackout the first time. Felt like word spread on the streets and spread fast. It was organic. Pure badass. KW was God. Then he called for a second blackout some other time and nobody did it- I can’t remember when that was cuz it sucked ass. And now I feel like that’s what I remember more, the second one sucking ass. Even though I don’t remember when it was. That’s how much it sucked ass. Forced. Not sure anybody has or will ever forgive the second one. BUT…this is a new era of dominance we are entering, maybe playoffs for a decade. We have a chance to take over baseball. All black would be a badass tradition for playoff games. Black towels too. It would be intense. Hope it happens. I forgive, I think.

    The Jarred Kelenic Appreciation Thread

    It’s much too early to speak definitively on either career, but jumping on player promoted at age 21 (post service time manipulation), when most of his peers are in college or low minors, is a bit short sighted. Kelenic’s OPS the past 28 days (baseball reference default split date (also 7, 14 days) is .809. Jarred is 2 1/2 years younger than Madrigal, still a huge difference / factor at this stage of their respective development. https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/split.fcgi?id=kelenja01&year=2021&t=b

    COVID Thread Part Deux

    Should we even discuss Covid anymore? Lets get consistent, USA. 15 people in a restaurant in NYC a problem. 100,000 in Vegas for Eilish last week, ah no problem. Border with thousands of unvaxxed immigrants, no problem. One big LOL at the inconsistencies. Skim this video to the crowd shots. Not one mask. Oh it was outside, I forgot. No wonder parents get mad when they tell kids to vax and yet these things happen. Hilarious. By the way a thread on Reddit has several people saying yes they have tested positive since the 3 day festival in Vegas.

    Blackout is Back for Soxtober

    Ok, thanks for the info. I guess I'll find out next Wednesday what's left. Lucky for me I prefer to sit in the upperdeck anyway (Section 531 directly behind home), so even if only the upper deck remains, that's fine with me.

    Blackout is Back for Soxtober

    I remember walking down to the ticket gate in the bottom of the 8th inning. Was like the second or third person in line at the window I was at. I don't remember if they announced it, or if we just assumed that's when they would do it, but it didn't seem like people knew until the game basically ended that they were going on sale then. Either way, game 163 was still one of the best games I've ever been at live. The atmosphere was amazing.

    Terry was just on Dan McNeil's podcast, and he looked and sounded great. McNeil's podcast is so much better than the garbage on 670 now a days. McNeil was yet another unfortunate victim of PC culture.

    The Jarred Kelenic Appreciation Thread

    Now at .172, had a big chance to break the game wide open but just flew out. Got to feel for Mariners and Blue Jays fans. (Not that anyone predicted Seattle would be in this position without Lewis and Paxton for most of the year, and Kelenic struggling to get his OPS up over .600)

    Giants/Dodgers final 12 games

    You have to be more confident of the Dodgers fending off the Cardinals in a one game do or die situation due to the strength of their starting pitching. Padres now get to play spoiler. Next manager (Bochy, Glenn Hoffman, Francona) yet to be determined.

    BUT WHAT ABOUT THE BALLS!!!!
  18. https://www.baseball-reference.com/players/r/roberlu01.shtml Some pretty eye popping numbers, other than RBI’s…which is due as much as anything due to his spot in the order. Looking at 25-35 homers per season, probably not the huge stolen base numbers (for injury reasons alone) but roughly 15-25 could reasonably be expected. Mid 800’s OPS.

    COVID Thread Part Deux

    I work in the injury compensation field, and have pretty extensive experience with my agency of people (literally more than a thousand) who have been sick and filed injury claims because they have had COVID-19. I am not aware of any who have missed more than a day or two of work and filed claims because of a bad reaction to the vaccine. And I’d venture to say most who missed work because of a vaccine reaction only took time off because it was offered in advance as part of a liberal leave policy to encourage people to get vaccinated.

    Blackout is Back for Soxtober

    Yeah, somehow our fanbase has already reached the point where we complain about everything the team does. I think we’re supposed to wait a season or two after a World Series win to turn on the team, but this is the first time in my life I’ve rooted for a playoff team two years in a row. I guess I don’t know how it works.

    Cubs 2021

    Cardinals tied their all time consecutive win streak at fourteen today, after their doubleheader sweep of the Cubs at Wrigley Field. The Cardinals will attempt their 15th straight win tomorrow at 1:20 PM.

    Engel hurt again, Tepera progressing

    Probably more likely we see tonight’s configuration than Goodwin. Honestly with a 26 man roster that is healthy I don’t see how Goodwin makes the playoff roster. Bench will be Leury, Collins, Sheets and Hamilton IMO.
