44 year old Bartolo Colon perfect through 7 innings... against the ASTROS at that....

 

The best part of near perfect games is glancing at the all time perfect game list. And seeing Philip f***ing Humber still on that list. Forever.

Or Joe Cowley...one of the "worst" no-hitters of all-time.

 

Melido Perez, rain-shorted no-hitter.

Worst pitcher in baseball to throw a perfect game. At least his name is cemented in baseball history.

The teams in the south would never allow you to selectively stick their games in times of year when school is in session/when it's harder for them to sell tickets.

 

So what? Why do they have a say here? Tell them it's just how it works.

I just think it’s a bad year. Early on, you want to load up on division games because there’s more opportunities to make them up. Outside the division, sure, try to play in domes and warmer places. There’s just way too much freaking out over a freak year.

Ohtani 93-95 MPH out of the gate at home against the Red Sox...down from the upper 90's last time out (pitching on 8 day's rest).

 

And Betts homers on a 97.4 MPH fastball.

According to Buster Olney, Mike Trout is going to go down as one of the greatest players ever. That's why he's considered an expert ladies and gentlemen.

Brewers are playing now, but if I was there, all I would be thinking about is how bad the roads are when the game is over.

Pretty impressive,  the Red Sox have been hitting. 

Oakland is far from a title, but they have some talent.  Beane has done an amazing job there

I've said it in the past but Jeter is gonna be more disliked than A Rod within the next year or so, it's already happening, especially with how well A Rod has taken to the TV gig. Funny how the world works
