Well shiver-me-timbers, the Pirates got scuppered!

That'll please Weave.  :claphappy:

RedSox got another win tonight, back home to Fenway, hopefully some home wins on the cards.

It looks like the Orioles had some fun, I half wished I'd watched that game.

 :D

Yay, finally sunk their ship  :claphappy:

And the Brewers beat Colorado  :claphappy: and the brewers in this country made a bit more money  :claphappy::hmmm::confused1::worried::claphappy:

Not forgetting LA lost too  :claphappy:  Love this game!

Come on Washington @ Arizona. Got to go to bed but will be willing you on.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Well the Weekend started badly for SF but got so much better  :claphappy:

Just behind the Rockies now and with Arizona in meltdown it's all looking good.

Found some hot dogs I like as well so happy bunny.

The only problem with baseball is that I listen to music and drink while watching it on the virtual reality so nothing gets done on the layout  :doh:.

Hope you all had a good Weekend.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Apologies for my abscence...

...does it really make the heart grow fonder?

I digress.

Sorry, been mad busy/stressful with work, had to deal with a vomiting wife [bleurgh] {the bug, not the wife}, and trying to come to terms with a good friend who recently took his own life.  :(

There's been lots of win some/lose some going on, we're staying ahead of the Yankees, but I'm accutely aware they've played four less games than us! "The Laser Show" (Dustin Pedroia) is back on the field which is great news, good timing as well, Mookie got scratched yesterday. Chris Sale got beaten up last night, while Folty kept us off the board. I suspect Chetcombe is equally happy with the way things are shaping up for the evil empire.

Scottmitchell74 on the other hand is probably NOT enjoying the season quite as much as others. Cheer up bloke.

Hopefully Weave is happy enough, the Giants are holding their own and are still in contention even if they aren't leading the charge, and they're just about keeping the Dodgers at bay.

Still a long way to go, no-ones out of contention yet.

 :beers:

Hi Michael,

So sorry to hear about your friend. Don't really know what it's like personally but a great female friend of mine's brother did that and know it's very hard.

Hope your wife's feeling better as well.

I did miss you. Felt I was talking to myself. SF aren't doing great but have potential with the likes of Crawford, Belt, Posey, McCutchen, Tomlinson and the like, and the Panda of course. Luckily the others in the NLW aren't doing that well either.

Have got 3 games at the Rockies next so that might see where the league's going  :worried:. Phillies and then Arizona at home so hopefully the fantastic home crowd will inspire us on.

Glad you're back.

Cheers weave  :beers:

@emjaybee so sorry to hear about your friend. It puts everything else in life into perspective when you hear things like that. It must be a tough time, I hope that knowing that a few of us on the forum are thinking of you helps a little.

As far as the games in hand we have on you - well, let's see what happens when we catch up those 4 games (not a good start this afternoon!).

Hi all,

Well last night I nearly went to bed in the 8th inning. Very tired and didn't see much hope. Forced myself to stay up a bit longer. Nearly went to bed again 4 - 2 down with 2 out, bottom of the 9th.

 Soooo glad I didn't  :)

Adrenaline kicked in and stayed for the tenth  :claphappy:

What a great game baseball is.

Cheers weave  :beers:

Sorry for the lack of posting, my laptop is away for repair so I'm limited with my access to games.

I watched the last half of the RedSox - WhiteSox game, which didn't end well.

Could've been worse, I wouldn't want to have been watching the Orioles game, oooh.

 :doh:

The Yankees are waaaaay behind on played games, thats really going to eat into their off time to play catch up, hopefully that'll wear them out a bit.

Weave...

...I'm saying nothing.

I thought "he'll be watching the Giants/National's game', I thought if I mention anything and they lose I shall get the blame for jinxing them!

Games just finished.

 :D

Meant to say thank you Michael for your non jinxing. Good man!

Also Brandon Crawford for his Home Run, my wife for being tolerant of this great, sometimes late (although not too bad today), sport and the dogs for not barking too much when daddy gets excited.

Saying that, the whole NLW are slightly  :censored: when it comes to Wild Card options at the mo. Long way to go though.

Cheers weave  :beers:

 Way behind on games played, but the Yankees have finally gone from a game behind to a game up on the Red Sox. Not sure how our bull pen will hold up as we have a ridiculous schedule for the next month...

Well, managed to watch the RedSox/Orioles game yesterday evening. Seemed to be going quite well 'til the ninth, Orioles got  a couple on bases, RedSox had to start warming up Kimbrel!

Managed to shut it down tho'. Phew!

I see the Giants are having a bit of a rough trip. Sorry Weave, you're only 4.5 back so you're still in the running.

Can't wait to get my laptop back, got a headache this morning from watching 9 innings on a Samsung galaxy S7!

All star game soon!

Off to see my second team in a couple of weeks. We have a place in Colorado so we try and get to a Rockies game when we go out there in the summer. Giants at Rockies on July 3rd... should be of interest to Weave!
