  • MLB GDT: Week 24

    Your leaders.

    AL East: Tampa Bay (now only 1.5 over Boston after a bad week)
    AL Central: White Sox 2.5 over Twins (but Quentin out)
    AL West: Anaheim (magic number 3)

    NL East: Mets (2.0 over Philly)
    NL Central: Cubs (zzzzzzzz)
    NL West: Dodgers (1.5 over Douchebags)

    AL Wild Card: Boston 6.5 over Minnesota
    NL Wild Card: Brewers 4.0 over Phillies

    It would appear that Anaheim, Tampa and Boston are all guaranteed spots, with the unknowns being who will win the AL Central and which team, Tampa or Boston, will have to settle for the WC and face the Angels in the first round. The NL is more unsettled but it looks like the Cubs and Brewers are in.

      Given the consistent bitch-slapping that has been the Cubs and Cardinals for four years running, I wouldn't count on it. Plus, realistically the best we can do is knock you into the Wild Card, and as we all know there is not a goddamn bit of difference between winning the division and winning the WC.

      But it would be cool.

        Hyoooooooooge Tampa-Boston series kicking off today. Or at least it would be huge if they weren't both virtually guaranteed postseasons spots thanks to the goddamn fucking wild card.

          Whoever wins this series is irrelevant to me, so long as the end result is the Yankees being even more unlikely to get a playoff berth.

            Yankees are on life support. 8.5 back of Boston.

            Imagine it. No Derek Jeter in October. No "Cotton-Eyed Joe". No dipshit singing "God Bless America" for 15 minutes in the seventh inning.

            Isn't it glorious?

              Hasn't happened yet. I am reserving my celebration until the cold hard reality of mathematical elimination sets in.

                And the BlueJays have leap-frogged them in the standings, with a nice 2.-something ERA this month so far...

                  Right Wing FOX will still mandate the singing of God Bless America.

                    After surgery, Wagner to miss rest of season, most of '09

                    Billy Wagner will miss the rest of this season -- and most of next season as well.


                    Wagner


                    The New York Mets have confirmed that their All-Star closer will have surgery this week to repair the MCL ligament in his left throwing elbow and will be out for the rest of this season and likely all of next year.
                    "It is a tear of the flexor pronator," Mets VP of public relations Jay Horwitz told 1050 ESPN New York's Andrew Marchand. "He will have surgery and is expected to be out a year."

                    GM Omar Minaya will be holding a conference call with reporters at 4 p.m. today.

                    Wagner has been sidelined since Aug. 3 because of a tender pitching elbow. He has tried several times to work his way back but hasn't been able to shake the pain.

                    Wearing a protective sleeve on his left elbow, Wagner tested his arm Sunday with disappointing results. Between games of a day-night doubleheader against Philadelphia, he went to the mound in a virtually empty Shea Stadium and faced teammate Gustavo Molina.

                    A wild Wagner hit the reserve catcher on the left foot with his 13th pitch and walked off the field to consult with a trainer and the Mets' coaching staff.

                    The 37-year-old Wagner is 0-1 with a 2.30 ERA and 27 saves in 34 chances. He is in the third season of a four-year, $43 million contract and ranks sixth on the career saves list with 385.

                    "He was trying to get us to activate him today," Mets general manager Omar Minaya said Sunday. "The last pitch he threw, he really felt some discomfort in the elbow area. He didn't want to risk it. ... We are going to be conservative."

                    New York leads the second-place Phillies by two games with 19 to play. Surprisingly, the Mets are 22-11 since Wagner went down.

                    Luis Ayala, acquired from Washington last month in a trade, has quickly become manager Jerry Manuel's closer. Ayala, who struggled with the Nationals most of the season, is 5-for-6 in save opportunities for the Mets.
                    Ayala allowed an unearned run in the ninth Sunday night. Before that, Mets relievers had not allowed a run in 23 innings since Aug. 31.

                    Still, Wagner's loss is a huge one for a bullpen that has been unreliable much of the year. Manuel has mixed and matched as much as possible with his relievers during the past month.

                    "Anytime you have a guy such as him and you lose him, it becomes a big challenge," Manuel said. "I think they have matured somewhat down there very well. We have some candidates down there to get outs. We just have to continue matching them up."

                          Phillies defeat the Marlins 8-6.

                          I'm surprised that the Marlins faded so badly.

                            When the Cardinals played them they really bad at fundamentals like base running and defense. I'm not surprised.

                              They played defense like it was strange concept.
