    Rich Hill will be okay. He can take a year off and then become an adjunct Poli Sci professor / pitching coach at Berkeley.

    Wouldn't wish Berkeley on Rich Hill.

    Mostly referring to that shithole of a city.

    I'm thinking he couldn't get into Fresno St, hence he chose Cal.

    Who notices foreheads? The TOP of her head, maybe. If it's flat, you can put your beer there ...

    Berkeley is pretty cool. Second choice to Fresno St of course!

    Goes without saying. Fresno St, aka the Harvard of the West.

    That's no shit. I work with FIVE FSU grads.

    My best friend on our faculty is one - he teaches Classics, primarily Latin, but also History of Warfare/Tactics. He's close with Victor Davis Hanson. Hanson was his undergrad and masters advisor there. They speak often. I've walked into this guy's classroom and seen VDH conducting a video lesson with students. Pretty unreal.

    • Atlanta Braves infielder Charlie Culberson was carted off the field Saturday after being hit in the face by a 91 MPH pitch from Washington Nationals reliever Fernando Rodney.

    https://sports.yahoo.com/giants-ace-madison-bumgarner-listed-002440830.html

    I know I was the biggest Bumgarner supporter before the deadline, but I've since seen come to my senses. I still think Madbum could be an effective back end <homo starter for some other team, but I think it's pretty irresponsible to call him the 4th best Free Agent after Cole, Rendon and Strasburg.

    Rich Hill threw a bullpen without incident and may find a way to pitch through it all. My guess is if he is forcing himself to play through an injury that killed a month + of his season already, then this could be Hill’s swan song. Cortisone shot before the game, pitch through it and try to win one final WS. We will see how the club goes about it, but 3-4 IP from Hill with another 2-3 of Gonsolin could be one hell of an interesting plan.

    I love it! Could be our version of a bullpen game. Maybe have Julio and May ready to follow Tony G.

    Here in Colorado, there is talk the Rockies may enter into a rebuild. Players have been openly critical of the FO and ownership group in recent months and there is frustration brewing as the Rockies organization is being viewed as one the most backwards and ineptly run teams in the sport. Apparently the Rockies owner and GM are against a lot of the newer trends and their game day preparation is a joke according to former players and new acquisitions. Their 3 stars are all lead by example guys and have no interest in being mentors to the young kids. The explosion by DJ LeMahieu after leaving and his reporting back to former teammates about just what a difference there is between the Yanks and Rox analytics departments have been a major factor of that frustration and also giving other teams the comfortability to say internally that they could be willing to pay up to acquire Arenado, Story or Blackmon from the club.

    Another determining factor is the Rockies are considered to have one of the worst farm systems in baseball. This is also a growing frustration among the team’s stars as there is a good chance that every other NL West club will be a Top 10 farm entering next season with young star studded teams like the Dodgers and Padres leading the way. The franchise seems to be in a tailspin and there are no fun pieces on the way that seem to have the abilities to take them out of it.

    With how stubborn Rockies ownership is, many are having a hard time seeing the club go through with a rebuild, but there are growing concerns that Nolan Arenado will be demanding a trade in the offseason. With a full no trade clause at his disposal, it will be interesting to see how that goes.

    Mike Trout also now out for the remainder of the season. Angels have some soul searching to do. May have another star OF’er on the way, but they’ve still got a multitude of problems.

    Olney is reporting that word is the Dodgers are planning on making a formidable run after Anthony Rendon in the offseason. This is not new as that has been speculated for over a year now. Initially I had heard that the Dodgers plan for the 2019-2020 offseason was to walk away with either Rendon or Arenado.

    I was surprised Arenado agreed to an extension in the first place. Sure the money was good, but did he really think the Rockies would be willing to spend more cash to compete? Also a little difficult for me to believe he and others were that naive or didn't have friends on other teams telling them long before LeMahieu dropped the bomb.
