FYI, every time I see or hear Urquidy’s name, I think of the single word in the Jawa vocabulary. 
Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.

Swinging at slop in the dirt is unlikely to precipitate a fly ball.

Corbin got out of a bases loaded jam by throwing four straight balls in the dirt, and getting two outs.

He should have taken that.  93 on the bottom inside corner is not a hitter's pitch.

I've come to accept that Redon is going to get a hit every time he goes to the plate, so just keep that cocksucker behind him from hitting the ball out of the park and maybe you can survive this thing.

I've seen worse at-bats.

Also, Springer obviously does not know that you rush right up to the plate and swing at the first fucking pitch when you pitcher has just had an at bat. What the fuck is wrong with these millennials?

Altuve back to hack mode.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

That's what he was trying to do. And almost did. He beats out that bunt, he steals, maybe Mike drives HIM in with an easy single, etc.

That is beating the odds. She is blessed.
One of the very rare cases where they found it in stage 1A, almost by accident. Treatment has been hell on earth, and there is a higher risk of relapse, but it’s a miracle she’s made it this far.

I haven't spoken to my contempt for DC area sports fans, they are in sort of an unassuming manner some of the worst fans in the country. But I have enormous respect for the Nationals because they for some reason have managed to put together a team that plays really good defense. I commend Suzuki especially, but there are plenty of other guys that I'm getting tired of.

My mom had lung cancer a few years ago and everywhere we went they asked, How the hell did you catch it this early? Well, the answer is, both of her sons are assholes and got tired of her relentless coughing which turned out to have nothing to do with the cancer. Got a scan, saw the tumor, lopped it off, here we are.

Better to be lucky than...well, just better to be lucky.  👍

Yeah, you know, for years she'd been coughing like a homeless guy who lives under a bridge. She'd had a scan a few years before that came back fine. In her mind, there was no reason to keep looking. She though it was allergies. That's what everyone told her. She came to visit me a few years ago and her cough was so fucking annoying that I told her, Look, your doctors aren't doing shit about this. I need you to find someone who will. I don't know what's wrong with you, but something is wrong, figure it out. This shit is unbearable.

She found a doctor who took thirty seconds to think about it, scheduled another scan, the one that found the tumor, prescribed her some acid reflux medication, so we ended up getting rid of the cancer AND the fucking coughing two for one.

I'll admit, it is harder to find her in Target now, but these are the sacrifices we make.

My mom fucked up her shoulder one morning when she was moving chairs around for her Sunday school class. She had to have it operated on and they found a small cancerous tumor in her right lung looking a pre-op x-ray. She had recently just been declared cancer free the previous year from breast cancer. That was after a lot of chemo. Anyway the lung cancer was very early and they got it all. She has one kidbney, hell she's been operated on 20 some odd times in her life. She's tougher than most.

I'll admit, it is harder to find her in Target now, but these are the sacrifices we make.

That’s awesome. 

I, sadly, omitted a number of people from my list.  One was a guy who’s been my friend for about 20 years and was one of the biggest hypochondriacs the world has ever produced.  He was always at the doctor’s for the merest things.  Then one day, his doctor visit returned the verdict of multiple stage 4 cancers.  He passed about 6 weeks ago. 

I still can’t get my head around it.  How the fuck does a guy who spends half his life in the doctor’s office get all the way to stage 4 without anyone noticing?  That’s why your story is so uplifting, because it’s the happy opposite.

Sounds like Smith is up next. They can extend him if he is successful, but a bunch of runs would help things tremendously.

But at least they do it quickly. I guess with robot umps, the call won’t be made as quickly, so they’ll just play those things out and sort it out later.

Sparks has this hang up about how teams will look at their feet when they are down. He notes the Nats players are now looking at their feet.

He's in the game now, he would not be a pinch hitter.

Well this inning is not without drama...
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Rondon can't get out of the inning with a 7-run lead...Peacock in with two on, two out...

He was a closer.

And for a good team. What the Astros have now is not exactly Lidge to Dotel to Wagner, but the guys they have at the back of the pen you'd put up against anyone.

Yuli is a good dude. I'm starting to warm to that guy.
