Yost said he needed more "versatility" mean.gif

I've never seen Scherzer get rocked like this. We should be getting no hit, but luckily the Reds played a shift on Harper for some reason and his pop up fell in.

Reds vs Nats is easy money laugh.gif. As I said, so odd

Singleton is a bust of a prospect.

His pitch recognition is so bad, he doesn't even give himself a chance.

Denard Span will be hitting the DL soon. This Nats team is made of glass. Span, Rendon, Werth, Zimmerman, and Strasburg all have been hurt this year. Can't survive with Dan Uggla or Matt den Dekkker in the lineup on a consistent basis.

Gotta upgrade at minimum one spot in the rotation. I never thought I'd say this, but the Astros need Scott Feldman to comeback and just be average laugh.gif

Velazquez was sent down after his start tonight to limit his innings. His overall numbers aren't that bad, but it's pathetic watching him pitch laugh.gif his command of all of his pitches needs to improve or he's just gonna be another bullpen arm.

McCullers has also been pushed back to limit his innings.

Today in Baseball History
July 8th


1912 At Chicago's West Side Grounds, Giants southpaw Rube Marquard's consecutive winning streak is stopped at 19 when the Cubs defeat New York, 7-2. The future Hall of Famer will finish the season with a league-leading 26 victories for the eventual NL champs.

1935 The American League's winning streak reaches three as the Junior Circuit beats the NL in All Star action at Municipal Stadium in Cleveland, 4-1. The rule that no pitcher can throw more than three innings unless the game goes extra innings will be instituted after Yankee Lefty Gomez pitches six outstanding innings in the Midsummer Classic.

1939 Prior to the first game of a doubleheader with the Red Sox at Yankee Stadium, a wall of Japanese beetles forms in front of the home dugout. Although over 5000 insects will be captured, the problem will return later in the month.

1941 Thanks to a dramatic two-out, bottom of the ninth inning, three-run home run by Red Sox outfielder Ted Williams, the American League All-Stars beat the NL in Detroit, 7-5. The "Splendid Splinter's" dramatic drive on a 1-1 pitch thrown by Claude Passeau off the right field press box makes the Briggs Stadium contest the first Mid-Summer Classic to be decided in the final inning.

1947 Yankee right-hander Spec Shea becomes the first rookie to win an All-Star game. The 26-year old 'Naugatuck Nugget' tosses three solid innings in the American League's 2-1 victory at Wrigley Field, but his appearance in the Mid-Summer Classic leads to a sore arm limiting his effectiveness as a starter for the Bronx Bombers.

1949 Hank Thompson, who broke in to the majors as a member of the St. Louis Browns twelve days after Larry Doby's American League debut with the Indians in 1947, becomes the first African-American to play for the Giants. When the former Kansas City Monarchs' standout faces Dodger right-hander Don Newcombe it marks the first time a pitcher-batter confrontation takes place between black players in the major leagues.

1950 In the bottom of the ninth inning at Forbes Field, Jack Phillips, pinch-hitting for Murry Dickson, erases a three-run deficit with a walk-off grand slam off Harry Brecheen. The 28 year-old utility infielder, who will go deep only nine times in 892 major league at-bats, gives the Pirates a dramatic 7-6 victory over the Cardinals.

1951 After Joe DiMaggio commits an error in center field, Yankee manager Casey Stengel replaces the aging superstar with rookie Jackie Jensen. The skipper's decision to make the move in the middle of the game strains an already acrimonious relationship.

1952 At Philadelphia, the National League squeaks by the AL in a shortened five-inning All-Star contest, 3-2. The Shibe Park contest is the first Mid-Summer Classic to be called early due to rain.

1956 In an 11-1 rout of the Pirates at the Polo Grounds, the Giants go deep for a franchise record seven home runs. Willie Mays, Daryl Spencer and Wes Westrum each connect for a pair and Hank Thompson adds another.

1958 At Baltimore's Memorial Stadium, in a contest which features no extra-base hits (13 singles), the American League edges the Senior Circuit, 4-3. Giants hurler Billy O’Dell pitched a perfect final three innings of the Silver Anniversary of the All Star game.

1959 During the All-Star break, the Reds fire manager Mayo Smith (35-45) and replaced him with Fred Hutchinson (39-35), the skipper of the Seattle team in the PCL. 'Hutch', who will become a mainstay in the Cincinnati dugout, is the team's fourth manager in less than a year.

1962 With the help of Stan Musial's three home runs, the Cardinals soundly defeat the Mets at the Polo Grounds, 15-1. 'The Man', who at the age of 41 becomes the oldest major leaguer ever to accomplish the feat, misses an opportunity for another at-bat in the ninth inning, when he is replaced by pinch-runner Bobby Gene Smith in the previous frame.

1965 At Milwaukee's County Stadium, Joe Morgan sets an Astro record by going 6-for-6. The rookie second baseman's stellar performance doesn't stop the Braves from beating Houston, 9-8.

1969 At Shea Stadium, Don Young is roundly criticized by Cubs' teammate Ron Santo for his two misplays in center field that help the Mets score three ninth-inning runs, resulting in a 4-3 walk-off victory and cutting Chicago's division lead to four-games over the surging New York team. The emotional third baseman will apologize for his remarks tomorrow, but will be soundly booed by the hometown fans in his first game back at Wrigley Field.

1970 Jim Ray Hart completes the cycle and becomes the first player in fifty-nine years to have six RBIs in one inning when he hits a a three-run homer and a three-run triple in the Giants' 13-0 rout of Atlanta. The San Francisco third baseman had already stroked a double in the second and added a single in the third before his three-base hit and round-tripper in the fifth frame.

1973 Bob Watson's hard slide into second base in an effort to break up a double play fractures Expos shortstop Tim Foli's jaw. When the Houston outfielder returns to left field, the Montreal fans at Jarry Park begin hurling debris at him to show their displeasure about his treatment of their popular infielder.

1974 Oakland outfielder Claudell Washington, making his first start in the major leagues, strokes a single in the tenth inning to give the A's a 4-3 victory over the Indians. Gaylord Perry's attempt to get his record-tying 16th consecutive victory this season is spoiled with the 19-year old rookie's walk-off hit.

1976 Randy Jones posts the most victories at the All-Star break in National League history, winning his 16th game of the season in the Padres' 6-3 defeat of the Cubs at Wrigley Field. In the second half of the season, the 26-year old southpaw's good fortune runs out when he will lose seven games by a run, including two 1–0 loses.

1987 Gerald Young becomes the first player from Honduras to appear in the majors. In his big league debut, the Tela native plays the outfield for the Astros and goes 0-for-4 in a 1-0 loss to the Expos at the Astrodome.

1994 Red Sox shortstop John Valentin snares Marc Newfield's sixth inning line drive, steps on second retiring Mike Blowers and then tags the runner coming from first, Kevin Mitchell, to turn an unassisted triple play against the Mariners.

1995 After matching solo tallies with their opponents in the 1st and 16th inning, the Astros score in the bottom of the 17th inning for a 3-2 victory over San Diego. Craig Biggio singles off Brian Williams to score Doug Brocail, who becomes the winning pitcher in the Astrodome contest when he steps on home plate.

2000 The Yankees sweep their cross-town rivals in the first double-ballpark doubleheader since 1903 with identical scores, 4-2 in an afternoon tilt at Shea and 4-2 in an evening contest at Yankee Stadium. It proves to be quite an interesting day in New York as Mike Piazza is hospitalized after being beaned by Roger Clemens, Dwight Gooden gets his first win at the Flushing Meadow ballpark since 1994, and a bizarre obstruction call on Mets' first baseman Todd Zeile causes the first game to be played under protest.
2000 When Jose Cruz Jr. hits his 20th round-tripper in a 6-3 win over the Expos, the Blue Jays become the first team in major league history to have four batters to hit twenty or more homers before the All-Star break. The 26 year-old Toronto outfielder joins teammates Tony Batista, Carlos Delgado, and Raúl Mondesí in reaching the milestone.

2002 The Charleston Riverdogs, the Class A minor league affiliate of the Devil Rays, padlock the gates of Joseph P. Riley, Jr. Park and hold a party outside the ballpark in an attempt to set the record for the lowest attendance at a professional baseball game. When the 'Nobody Night' contest becomes official in the fifth inning, and the attendance is recorded as zero, patrons are allowed through the gates to watch the South Atlantic League contest against the Columbus RedStixx.

2003 Indians' southpaw Billy Traber one-hits the Yankees, retiring 27 of 28 batters, including 21 in a row after allowing John Flaherty to reach first base with a single in the third inning. The 4-0 blanking of the Bronx Bombers is the 23-year old rookie's first complete game.

2005 In Singapore, the International Olympic Committee takes a secret vote on the approval of the 28 current summer Olympic events scheduled to be played at the 2012 Summer Games in London. Baseball and softball are eliminated, making it the first time since polo was dropped in 1936 that sports have been cut.

2005 In a 7-6 defeat to the Rangers, Blue Jays' ace Roy Halladay suffers a broken leg as a result of being hit by a Kevin Mench third inning line drive. 'Doc', who was slated to be the AL starter in the All-Star game to be played in Detroit this week, will miss the rest of the season.

2008 The Cubs bolster their pitching staff, obtaining starter Rich Harden and reliever Chad Gaudin from the A’s in exchange for right-hander Sean Gallagher, second baseman/outfielder Eric Patterson, outfielder Matt Murton, and minor league backstop prospect Josh Donaldson. Chicago’s dealing may be in anticipation of the trade rumors of the Brewers getting Indians' ace, C.C. Sabathia.

2010 With the Rockies’ 4-3 victory over St. Louis, Ubaldo Jimenez became the first pitcher in ten years to record 15 wins prior to the All-Star break. The Colorado right-hander, who has compiled a 15-1 mark, is the first hurler to reach the plateau since David Wells posted a 15-2 record with the Blue Jays in 2000.

2010 Using an on-line ballot, fans select Nick Swisher of the Yankees and Reds' first baseman Joey Votto to fill the last two roster spots in this year’s All-Star game. The New York outfielder, who edged Red Sox first baseman Kevin Youkilis for the final AL spot, used his Twitter account to campaign for votes and to thank his fans for their support.
