  • Well, they've done it. Corbin Burnes and Josh Hader combined to notch this year's record-breaking 9th no-hitter (and 8th official). Against the Indians... who are the first team get no-hit three times in one season (ouch), and in their final season under the Indians name.

    They don’t think it be like it is, but it do.

    • Yesterday's 9-11 game was incredible! It was like it was scripted. My game-of-the-year to-date.

          He also joins Sandy Koufax and Chris Sale as the only pitchers to throw an immaculate inning (9 strikes, 3 outs) three times in his career.

          • The Phillies announced they’ve released Vince Velasquez. That was the anticipated outcome once Philadelphia designated him for assignment over the weekend.

            • I think that if the Dodgers finish with the second-best record in baseball yet have to play in the Wild Card Game, MLB will have to reconsider how it seeds the playoff teams for future seasons. This would show that division winners don't always deserve seeding priority. And it prevents the Dodgers and Giants from meeting in the NLCS, instead they would have to meet for the right to advance there.

              The NBA has realized the problems with seeding priority for division winners, twice in fact, and currently NBA seeds their playoff teams solely by record. Hopefully the other major sports leagues will fall in line soon.
              The playoffs should expand eventually, but only if MLB itself expands.

              • The Cardinals announced Monday that they’ve designated right-hander Daniel Ponce de Leon for assignment. His spot on the roster will go to lefty Brandon Waddell, who has been recalled from Triple-A Memphis.

                • Is there anything worse than a “bullpen game?” Seriously the Phillies and Orioles are in a “pitching duel” and no one is having a stand out game because there have already been about 5 pitchers combined and all of them are nameless, faceless, totally forgettable. This is what analytics replaced starting pitchers for. This is a mockery. I mean holy hell if I wasn’t a fan of one of these teams directly who could ever watch this?
                  "No matter how great you were once upon a time — the years go by, and men forget,” - W. A. Phelon in Baseball Magazine in 1915. “Ross Barnes, forty years ago, was as great as Cobb or Wagner ever dared to be. Had scores been kept then as now, he would have seemed incomparably marvelous.”

                  • The Padres announced they’ve designated Jake Arrieta for assignment. The move clears active and 40-man roster space for reliever Javy Guerra, who has been reinstated from the 60-day injured list.

                      This is not new. On October 2, 1949, the St. Louis Browns used one pitcher per inning.

                        Arrieta. Talk about rags to riches to rags.

                            It'll be no surprise when the Mets pick him up.
