Nice! Mariners take the first game of the series with the Phlllies, and finally brought up our best prospect. Now if the Rangers would just lose a game or two so we can take the lead in the division...
Hopefully getting Hafner back can help the lineup score some fucking runs. Im not banking on it. They need to trade for a third baseman who can hit.
I still like the pitching.
Look eye, always look eye.
A crappy minor league team owned by kevin costner losing to a team owned by jose canseco who took the mound. pitchers playing field positions. batters pitching. lol you couldn't make this up.Minor League Baseball Play By Play Man Quits On Air

The Lake County Fielders are a minor league baseball team that plays their baseball in Lake County just north of Chicago in the North American League. The Fielders are partially owned by actor Kevin Costner, known for his own Minor League baseball exploits in Bull Durham. The Fielders also happen to be the worst run organization in professional sports. Yes, even worse than the LA Clippers, Dodgers, or Mets. Earlier this month, former MLB manager Tim Johnson and LCF players quit over not being payed by deadbeat managing partner Rich Ehrenreich. Acting manager Pete LaCock (bwahaha) then produced one of the most ridiculous baseball games known to mankind against Jose Canseco's Yuma Scorpions earlier this month. I'll let Matt Lindner (who also sent in the clip) of Bloguin's great baseball blog The Outside Corner explain...
What unfolded after was one of the most bizarre baseball games on any level. Acting Fielders manager Pete LaCock put out a sort of opposite day lineup, with pitchers playing in the field and position players pitching. Canseco responded in kind, wanting to level the playing field and leaving his team with a battery consisting of himself on the hill and former Rays outfield prospect Joey Gathright playing catcher for the first time in his life. LaCock's debut as Fielders manager would prove to be his swan song as well, as he wound up quitting himself following the game due to the payroll dispute.
In a testament to just how strange this game actually was, Canseco pitched more like former teammate Dave Stewart than he did when he made his Major League pitching debut for the Texas Rangers, a start that ended in an arm injury requiring Tommy John surgery. Canseco used a knuckleball to hold the Fielders' makeshift lineup to one run en route to an 8-3 victory before a reported crowd of several thousand surely bewildered fans.
Last week, the Fielders made minor adjustments to the roster, trading nine players and releasing fourteen more. The Fielders play in a makeshift temporary stadium outside Chicago and there's no word on if the new roster of players are actually getting paid or not (they have lost 5 straight but remain 25-20 on the season). To add to all of the insanity, Fielders play by play man Qumar Zaman (seen here trying out for the Wrigley Field PA job) then took it upon himself to quit his job on air after a recent game. Listen and be thankful that you don't work for the Lake County Fielders...
CC came damn close tonight and I really think the 30 minute rain delay hurt his perfect game but still a damn good performance and the best pitcher in the league remains on top of his game with his 15th win. Didn't win that until August last year I think he's 20 bound for sure and maybe a few more, this dude is on a fucking mission to show NY he's worth everything. David Cone was in the house for the game it's a shame CC couldn't join him in Perfect Gameville.
Pirates are playing really fucking good for...well..the Pirates...and right now are in the 19th inning vs Atlanta..wow.
Lol @ Obama's exchange with Brian Wilson at the white house

i haven't lost sleep over a pirate game since that 1992 nlcs game... until last night. fucking umpire
I think he tagged him. Ump blew that call. I can't believe the Pirates are only 1 game out of first.
My White Sox are 3.5 games back out of first in a weak division. We just dealt our expiring contract Edwin Jackson to the Jays for a reliever and a decent pitching prospect. We also unloaded 3B Teahen's contract for much needed cap space.
Alex Rios and Adam Dunn are BUMS. Alex Rios has been benched for a rookie De Aza playing CF for us who just hit a HR in his first AB for us since being called up from AAA Charlotte. We pay Adam Dunn and Rios over $20 Million per year and neither of them can hit .200 for us.
Ervin Santana pitched a no hitter against Cleveland, but they still got a run? How did that happen?
At my age, I got sid bream's knees
Of course, the very minute I post about that game.. the Buccos get screwed. Bleh. Sorry Art.
White Sox win first of 3 game series vs. the red sox. 3 games behind Detroit for first place and gained a game on Cleveland who apparently just resorted to throwing at the batters when they were down 7-0 in the 4th before eventually losing 12-0. Indians are falling apart:
White Sox go up against Lester tomorrow. Going to be a tough game.
