housebrew:

Zack Greinke, filling in as the Dodgers’ ace in the absence of Clayton Kershaw, has worked at least five innings and permitted no more than two runs in each of his last 15 starts, the longest such streak in the majors since Greg Madduxwent 16 straight from July 31, 1993, through…

Although I don’t like to see people matching and exceeding Maddux records, Greinke is a good guy. I thought he wouldn’t like LA but maybe he found a house in a quiet part of town, didn’t sign up for the newspaper, and isn’t getting criticized anyway since he’s throwing like a monster.

Maldonado knocks cover off ball -- literally

housebrew:

Uecker: [10 seconds of silence] I have never seen that in my entire life.  Alvarez fielded that ground ball hit to third, he picked it up, and as he picked it up—I don’t know if he, yeah I think he did—the cover started coming off the ball. That’s a new one for me.  He threw it over there anyway, and it rolled over there like a napkin.  Man, you talk about the power and topspin put on that by Maldonado…I have never ever seen that in my lifetime.  I don’t care what level you’re talking about.  Must have been a bad cow…or a horse.  Too much time out in the sun, or something.  Boy, there’s a cow who used too much moisturizer or something.  I’m telling you…every time I look at it I laugh.  I tell you, everytime I see it I think Alvarez is pulling something out of his glove, like a paper.

Remember that name, Martin Maldonado, the guy who literally knocked the cover off the ball. Someone call the guy who wrote “Physics of Baseball” so we can find out what happened. I want to see a slo-mo replay of the bat making contact with the ball. It’s a good strategy for turning a hard hit to 3rd base into a single.
