Felix has been a shell of his former self for two years now. Too bad. In his prime, he was fun to watch.

True. Too many miles in that arm. He won't return to the form that made him the Cy Young pitcher, the #1 hurler, the
best in the game. Gone!

I saw the injury, but his whole season? Wow. Actually, that looks like a season-ender. I don't know why I was surprised.

I wonder if this is going to possibly lower hos price for CHC or the MFY.

Apparently he suffered a bonebruise. There is no ligament damage, so he's expected back this season.

the play looked so similar to the injury Manny Machado suffered a season or two ago. how did Bryce not tear
up his knee is a miracle? when i saw the play i also thought maybe he busted his ankle like
Jason Kendall did from the Pirates so many years ago.

suddenly there is a call for the bases to be upgraded or fixed or made safer.
here's an idea, stop changing the bases multiple times per game so that the clubs
can sell them to fans as "game used". maybe that will solve the problem :roll:

Bone bruise is nothing to sneeze about. Yes, it beats a torn up knee, but depending on how bad the bruise is the guy
is looking to be out for a couple of months.
Larry Nance of Lakers had the same thing & he was gone for a decent amount of time.
If not mistaken, Kevin Durant had the same injury, and he was out for at least 2 months.
In other news... Dodgers won...............again.

Judge is going to be fine. The kid is a rookie. This season might not even be the best season of his career.
I watch almost all Yankee games and he does hit some bombs. He does seem to always be smiling. Difficult
to tell he is riding high or slumping.
The kid will make the adjustments, eventually. As long as he has a great attitude, there is nothing to worry about.

Now what about the long HR he hit the other night into the 3rd deck vs Mets? WOW!!!

I think it's a little bit of a slump. Baseball is a game of adjustments and he hasn't learned to make them yet, although I think he'll be fine in the long run. He has considerably dropped his lead for ROY and possible MVP the second half.

Homeruns and strikeouts are up with batting acerages down now because the young hitters are just swinging for the fences. Homeruns are cool, but it seems to have taken over lately.

Yes, Judge is slumping. Has been since the all-star break. There are games he might go 2-4, with great contact, but will follow that up with
0-4 and 3 k's. Since he's a rookie and not a 10 year veteran, it is very easy to be patient with the kid. Plus, MLB fans seem to like him a lot, despite
playing in The Bronx.

He's very un-Harper/Puig, that's for sure. In fact I can't think of an MFY I didn't dislike since the Core-4 and Cano ( even then I'm not the biggest fan of Posada ).

*ETA

Albert Pujols hits HR #609, tying Sammy Sosa for the most hit by a Domican born player.

*ETA II

Curtis Granderson traded to Dodgers for PTBNL or cash.

I saw that shot from the get go. Followed it straight up to the 3rd deck. It was unfreaking believable. Was sitting in front row of RF right behind Conforto. I called 3rd deck as soon as it left his bat. I asked the Yankee fan if he saw it and he said he just looked at Cespedes and how he didn't move. No one in the stadium moved really because it went out that fast. I'm a Mets fan but Judge is very likable. He would run over to a fan and place the ball in the glove after he stopped tossing with the ball boy. Conforto would toss it to a young fan as well. Both are extremely likeable guys. I'm glad Conforto got to play with a class act like Curtis Granderson.

Kevin Maas?! I remember that craze here in NY. They wanted him to replace Mattingly. I don't think Judge will be anything like Maas. He's much more talented and it's such a hitters era too with the small parks and watered down pitching. And a lot of guys who don't know how to pitch. No one pitches inside anymore!

LAD's Rich Hill becomes first pitcher to lose a perfect game on an error in the 9th inning, bummer, but his no-hitter is still intact.

Not anymore. Rich Hill becomes first pitcher to lose a no-hitter on a walk off HR in the *10th. Talk about a shitty day.

Rajai Davis traded from Oakland to Boston. Details coming.

I just saw all of this and watched Pedro Martinez make a great case that the HBP on Sanchez was intentional.

I believe it was and the brawl that ensued was awesome. That's good for baseball. You can't throw inside, can't block the plate, can't go out of your way to break up a double play, etc.

This is like the old school. I want more of this.

I agree with you. But also let's not forget how badly the umpires screwed up this mess. Could have been prevented after Sanchez was hit but
noooooooooooo, the umpires lack awareness and things got out of hand.
I read that Pedro and Dallas Braden criticized Sanchez for throwing "sucker punches" during the brawl. Since when were punches during a brawl
being graded or approved/disapproved? Both Miggy and Romine got into a fight and someone just might get punched or stepped on or injured.

Did you see the incident w/Ausmus and Gardner at the end of the game? Oh yeah, Ausmus is a big pussy. Whining and complaining all game.
He told Garnder to eff off and that set of Gardner big time.
Maybe Ausmus should worry about Miggy's .250 average instead of the other team.

I only saw a little of the highlights, but both sides were in the wrong with the emphasis on Detroit for trying to "cool off" Sanchez.

Still glad it happened though.

Fight!
