    And, apropos of nothing, the goddamn Pirates that always play their ass off against St. Louis have lost ten in a row.

      What a strange month August was in the NL Central. Milwaukee went 20-7 (9-1 at home, 11-6 on the road). The Cubs were 20-8 (12-7 at home and 8-1 on the road; yes the Cubs 8-1 on the road last month). And then Houston's sweep of the Cards made them 21-9 for August (13-3 at home, 8-6 on the road).

      The Cards were 13-13 last month and lost at least six games in the standings to three different teams in their division.

      Pittsburgh's 7-21 month - as kah points out - includes 10 straight losses. The last nine of them in consecutive series againt Milwaukee, the Cubs, and Milwaukee again. Thanks, guys. Way to play spoilers. I mean, look, a team that's intent on playing .500 ball while the contenders in its division are playing .700 ball doesn't have any real right to complain. But if the fags from Pittsburgh had even shown up occasionally against the Brewers/Cubs, this might still be something of a race.

        The guys calling the game yesterday joked around by saying the good news is the Astros had the third best winning percentage in the league during August. The bad news is the Cubs and Brewers were and the best and second best.

        They say you can't win it all in June but you sure as shit can lose it. That terrible month has cost the Astros.

        Of course the Pirates are going to stink. It is after the trading deadline so they've traded all their good players away.

          I give props to the Cubs and Brewers for putting their foot on the necks of the weaker opponents, whereas the Cards have just screwed around. But what they hey, they've played way better that what I thought they would before the season started. It's just a bit dissapointing that upper management decided to stand pat at the trading deadline.

              Milwaukee's out to an early 1-0 lead - against Santana.

              Sheets pitching for Milwaukee.

              Should be a good day for MLB.TV, with 3 NL Central-relevant games this afternoon.

                Sheets out after 5 innings and ~50 pitches. No word on what happened.

                Villanueva in, and Reyes is on and probably moving.

                  You might wanna sit down for this one - The Washington Nationals have won 6 games in a row. And they're leading Philly 2-0 today.

                    Mets pick up a run in the 7th on a bases-loaded wild pitch, but that's all they get. 2-1 Milwaukee.

                    Delgado goes yard off Gagne! 3-2 Pondscum.

                    4-2 now, Church RBI double. The wheels are coming off.

                      Wow. That may have been the worst played ball by Soriano I have ever seen (leadoff 'triple' in the 4th). And that's saying a lot.

                        What happened? I was watching weather people get tossed around in 90 MPH winds.

                          Line drive down the LF line, hit just under the basket, and started rolling back along the line towards the infield. Soriano didn't exactly 'hustle' to get the ball, and thus it turned into a triple - with the ball rolling right along the line towards third base, mind you - instead of a double.

                          It's now 2-0 Houston, top 4, 1 on, 2 out.

                            Bounced hard off the left field wall and started rolling back toward the infield and eventually into the bullpen. Alfonso didn't exactly run after it.

                            Hell if Tejada didn't slide he might have been able to come home.

                              Awesome. Can't wait for the in-game highlight on that one.
