    WOW the Giants won last night!?! I was really surprised. I'm not a big fan of the Rangers or Giants, so after the third inning, when the Rangers were leading, I stopped watching, expecting them to win. Next morning, I was watching ESPN, and I found out the Giants won by a lot. I'm sure no one was expecting this kind of offense against Tim and Clifford.

    I think the Giants are gonna win again tonight and the series. Although, I can't be too sure until I see them play in Texas.

    YUM YUM JIMMY JOHN'S!

    The Giants won again. It was close until the bottom of the 8th where the Giants just got the big hits when they needed them. Both pitchers were really good but once again the Rangers' bullpen collapsed like they did against the Yankees in the ALCS. At least they have a day off today and are heading back home.

    Last night's win was exactly how the Rangers used to play. If they keep this up, no doubt they will win the WS. For now it looks like the Giants will win the World Series though.

    The Giants aren't going to win tonight is what I predict but I think that they will win in 6. Bumgarner was amazing last night with 8-innings of shut out baseball. Huff hits a 2-run homer and that's all that was needed to win the game. Sanchez played awesome defense in the game as did the Giants as a whole. Anyway, shutting the Rangers out at home and only giving them 3 hits in the gamer is amazing.

    Trouble for Texas now. I don't know about tonight, but I think the Giants have an advantage.

    The Giants won just like I thought they would except a game earlier than I predicted. Still, I'm happy that they won since they haven't won since the 50's. Well, the Rangers have never won a World Series if I remember correctly but they eliminated the Yankees so I'm biased I guess.

    I didn't think the Rangers would win a series where they were losing 3-1. Renteria was the MVP, and he deserved it, I guess. It could have also gone to Matt Cain, though. This World Series wasn't as exciting as the last two. Maybe because it wasn't as close, or because the Phillies didn't play in it.

    So, the thread does still exist in some form...

    I guess all I can say is.... WHOA. Were did this start come from? Completely surprised by the Indians and Royals good start. I'm partial to the royals of course. I was thinking about if they continued doing better and maybe made the playoffs. The thought of the royals being in the playoffs seems ridiculous. Guess I'm just used to the losing.

    Also stunning, Red sox suck so far. Don't expect that to continue, but who knows....

    What does anyone think about the play where Hamilton broke his arm, stupid or agressive?

    They've got a great bunch of starters this year. I'm expecting them to go to the world series (big stretch). Halladay got hammered in his last start at home though; pretty surprising.

    Bah, royals starting to tank. Maybe we'll be able to pick up some wins at home soon.

    Yeah, he's definitely up there. I don't know that I could specifically point out anyone better.

    Anyone see that red sox-angels game last night? I've never seen a stadium that empty (even at a royals game). I guess there was a rain delay of like 2.5 hrs, though. That would have been cool to have stayed to see the whole thing. You'd know you were among the elite.

    Did anyone see that groundskeeper get swallowed up by the tarp? That was funny

    Oh, almost forget.... WOO!! First no-hitter! Definately what you would call an 'ugly' no-hitter, but still awesome. What's your opinion of the missed call at first? I'm thinking that it might have been ruled an error, so I'd still called the no-hitter legit.

    Is that the divison where everyone's within like 2 or 3 games of .500?

    I'm not giving up just yet. They really sucked on their last road trip, but they play well enough at home that I'm still hopefull. Well, hopefull that they'll be close to .500 in the end. Not totally sure about the playoffs; pretty small chance right now.

    And yes I've been hearing for years that we'll never get anywhere until the owner starts putting out more money.

    Wow, lee with 16 strikeouts in 7 innings. Is that more impressive then a no-hitter? I'm not sure; you've got to have some pretty sick pitches to strike out 16 guys.

    Then yes, that should be a tight race.

    On the other hand, the AL central division doesn't look like it will be very close at all. The twins, tigers and white sox are in the basement, and the indians have the best record in baseball. Unless they start sucking and the royals or somone else catch fire, they'll probably walk away with it.

    Dont start assuming so early in the season, its only May and even though the indians are beasting it wont make it true that they will win...baseball is that kind of game that surprises you...and a no-hitter is more impressive than a 16 strike out game at least in my honest opinion. It shows you kept yourself mentally and physically in the game not to mention the entire team has to be into it also to make great plays...essentially a no hitter is the full team while a 16 strike out masterpiece (such as Lee's) is more of a personal or battery type of game. Thats my two cents at least...
    Almost there...

    I just hope the Cubs start scoring more runs...they are horrible with their hitting with RISP.

    Two no-hitters for Verlander is pretty impressive. I could tell he asn't going to get a perfect game since he seemingly lost the strike zone for a while in the 8th and was battling a hitter, whose name escapes me, for 8+ pitches at the point I started watching.

    The one walk was the end result of a 12-pitch AB in which Arencibia fouled off at least eight strikes before finally taking ball four. You don't throw a one-walk no-hitter if you've "lost the strike zone" at any point.

    Wow another no hitter today. For some reason I'm not as hyped about this one as I usually am. And I think another pitcher, gallardo, went through 8 innings without allowing a hit. Isn't that the guy that threw the 'imperfect game' last year? Wait, no, that was gallaraga. What was the reason they never reversed that call anyway?

    Yeah, that's true I guess. I mean, the mets lost a 7 game division lead 2 or 3 years ago with only a couple weeks left, so I shouldn't be giving up so soon.

    I suppose I'm looking at it considering only the pitcher. If lee had stayed in the whole game, got the win and had 16K or more, I'd find his accomplishment more impressive. But given that all that didn't happen, I can't decide.

    Because you simply can't go around reversing safe/out calls after the game ends, no matter how blatantly inaccurate they are. It opens up a can of worms in the worst way about the people who run the sport what can and can't be done with game outcomes and results after the fact. The right decision was to simply not start down that road.

    Galarraga got more attention for throwing a not-perfect game than he would have had he actually gotten the perfect game anyway.
