He has been a fucking disaster the entire season, and still gets used in high leverage situations. That is on Lloyd. He should be pitching long relief and mop up duty until he unfucks himself. He has cost them 6 or 7 wins at least.

He hasn't been pitching high leverage situation. We put him in when we're either losing or winning by a lot. We put him in when we're tied only if we have no one else and/or are thinking we're going to be going into extra innings anyway. There is no good way to handle our relievers. We had to motherfucking put a starter in for relief at one point its so bad. If you think this is on Lloyd you don't have a clue about either how to manage pitchers or how bad shit is out there.

We can't put him in for long relief because his arm doesn't last that long. Two innings tops does not make a long reliever.

I'll be on the Jays bandwagon. Since my Cubs are actually competitive this year, I'll have to root for them first but after that, I'm good with the Jays or the Royals making some headway. The rest of the NL can go fuck itself, except for the Pirates, who have to be my fallback NL team.

No chance. The same dolts are doing the hiring, so they will fuck this up too. The Mariners are doomed until they get a real owner who actually wants to win.

So...the Blue Jays are back in the playoffs and looking like they may even end up1st overall in the AL.  Not that you would know that from all the "coverage" they're getting from the US sports media. Ohhhhh, I see.

OMG.  It's like you read my mind.  I was thinking about all the attention Papelbon has received lately compared to the almost zero mention of anything about the Jays not more than 2 mins ago and was going to post something to that effect.  Didn't know he choked out Harper today, though.  You know you're a douche bag when you make Bryce Harper into a sympathetic character.  I saw the play and it wasn't anything almost all major league players have done at some point, and a double "who gives a fuck?" because it was a completely meaningless game against the Phillies.

As tempting as it is to cry American bias, the Jays aren't a standout story. Both them and the Cubs have impressive playoff stories.  Then there's still a lot of race talk, like the Astros collapse, and the overall AL wild card situation.

There will be more focus on playoff teams once it starts.

Johnathan Papelbon needs to sit down and shut the fuck up. He gets a trade to a contender and makes almost no real impression other than to piss off the closer that they already had to the point where said closer busts his fist on a locker door. Oh and then he attacks the best player on their team for what amounts to fucking nothing. I'm not one to say Harper shouldn't leg out a fly ball but I'm not about to start talking shit to the dude who is obviously not happy about it when he comes back to the dugout. Especially when I then go out and throw a 2-run tater to a guy in a tie ballgame the very next fucking inning. Fuck Papelbon. I'm glad the Cubs didn't trade for him even though they could have used a closer. Too bad Harper didn't break his jaw - must not be a New York Jets fan.

As for the Blue Jays, if you watch MLB Network, they are getting a LOT of love there. It's just that their playoff return was a foregone conclusion after the trading deadline and there's other stories that have come up. The Rangers coming back from the dead to lead the AL West as the Astros collapse - also the Angels coming back to challenge for the wild card spot. The Twins charging for that AL Wild Card spot. The Mets finding an offense and winning a division. The utter failure of the Nats to live up to their potential and the ensuing soap opera.

This is my favorite part of a Braves fan with a shitty rebuilding team. Watching the Nats implode in real time while douchnozzle Bryce Harper has to stew on his "Where's my Ring" comment from the beginning of the season. Because that will live forever until he gets one. Just like Lebron's NOT ONE...

Papel-douche done for the season.

Since he was already facing a 3-game suspension for popping Manny Machado, the Nats suspended Papeldon for the other 4 games of the season because of the incident with Harper.

Story of their season might be encapsulated by last 10 days -- win 8 in a row, then lose to the hot ace (Arietta) who they're most likely going to face in the one-and-done wildcard game.

Unless they can catch the Cardinals - 3 games out, but starting a 3 game series tonight.

Papelbon's act was tired even on the Red Sox. As for people saying Harper should've hustled....Fuuuuuuuuckkkk offffffff. If that was the case Papelbon and David Ortiz would've fought ever night.

The whole 'respect the game', 'oh you pimped that home run/flipped your bat/stood in the batter's box exactly .1 seconds too long' shit is fucking bullshit. I'm especially looking at you Cardinals and Yankees (with a particular kick in the nuts for Brian McCann). Just fuck off and don't give up home runs if you don't like it.

How come no one gets pissed a pitcher for fist pumping when he gets an out?  Ohhhhh, I see.

You have a point. And I concur. Hit a home run, fuck it...you get to do whatever the hell you want, stand in the box till it bounces, watch it on the big screen, skip around the bases. Fuck prima donna pitchers getting their feelings hurt because a batter took them yard. Want to make a statement about it, strike his ass out next at bat, or intentionally walk him.

So I suppose Way has not commented on the new GM for the Mariners due to being drunk off his ass in celebration? Not sure if this is a good signing or not, with Dipoto's troubles with Mike Scioscia causing him to lose his job. But surely Lloyd McClendon is easy to work with?  why so serious?

See my comments above- the same shitheads that hired the last two GMs are still running the show, and still retarded, so anyone they pick I will take with a truckload of salt. I am optimistic because DiPoto was at odds with the cretinous Scioscia, so that is a good mark in his column. See Jonah Keri's column on Grantland about it from last summer for details.

The Jays in the 1992 ALCS didn't like the way Dennis Eckersley fist pumped towards the Toronto dugout after striking out Ed Sprague to end the 8th.  So when Roberto Alomar hit his home run off Eckersley to tie the game, the whole Blue Jay bench came out onto the field to celebrate and throw shit back at Eckersley.  It was beautiful.

Ok so it was one game, but it was a damn good game. And now we get the Cardinals, who are vulnerable IMO despite having won 100 games.

Also, Jake Arrieta is pitching pretty goddamn good.

Yeah he is... that isn't in question. The rest of that bullpen, however, is.

I am kinda thankful the Pirates lost. Given my chosen sports teams, I have no sympathy for these river people and their wailing and gnashing of teeth because the Pirates got bounced, AGAIN - but I do understand. That said, at least I won't have to deal with the baseball fans and everyone can turn back into Steeler/Pens loonies.

Yeah, the biggest weakness on the team is the bullpen. I have no faith in anyone in the Cubs pen. I still wish they hadn't pushed Arrieta to 9 innings last night though. We are going to need him in St. Louis.

I don't like the Cubs or the Astros. I hate clubs that as an attempt to win, purposefully tank for years to try and bounce back loaded with young talent. It's so disrespectful to fans, players, and abuses the good faith foundation of the modern (North American) sports concept of an entry draft where top picks go to bad teams to help them get competitive again. May as well go back to the pre-draft academy style systems if the draft is going to be abused like this.
