    57 year old* Bartolo Colon close to signing a minor league deal with Detroit apparently.

    *may or may not be his age.

    A week or two too late. Could've seen him vs. the Mets!

    Poor old Bill Buckner died today. If you haven't seen it, watch the ESPN film 'Catching Hell' and see the awful stuff he had to go through after the '86 World Series. And he put up with all the crap with such dignity. Sorry to hear he has passed away.

    Yes, he made that error, but the Sawx should've won that game. Calvin Schiraldi and Bob Stanley were the real villains there. 2 outs no one on, and couldn't get another out. Pathetic bullpen.

    And it was both the worst and best inning in my life to that point :)

    Check out the throw by Bellinger last night. Amazing.

    I think he was in a few episodes - very funny and hats off to him for doing it.

    Do you mean "Behind the Bag?" https://youtu.be/4CR9kKGeE5Q

    I think "Catching Hell" was about Steve Bartman.

    Lots of praise for Buckner today, all deserved. One comment mentioned Bob Stanley got a real late break from the pitcher's mound and likely would not have beaten Wilson to 1st base had Buckner fielded the ball cleanly and tried to throw him out.

    But, we'll never know. Baseball's great that way.

    While Catching Hell is primarily about Bartman, the second half does go into the Buckner play and the crap he had to deal with in detail too.

    Great comeback from the Dodgers last night. Down by 5 in the 7th, and won it on a walkoff in the 9th.
    1 run in the 7th
    2 in the 8th
    3 in the 9th

    Actually got up at 6 to watch the end of this and thought it was in the bag. Diaz had a nightmare. Awful start to the day.

    So this Franmil Reyes, Chris Paddack 'I will always love you remix' is a thing now i guess.

    Most home runs in a month ever last month (1,135)

    Juiced ball?

    Seems like it, especially if you listen to the Met's announcers. Lots of non-power hitters hitting homeruns. Pitchers, 'defense-first' infielders, ...

    Jay Bruce and his 14 HRs close to getting traded to Philly.

    Will be interesting to see how much of his salary the Phillies will take - the Bruce salary was always the downside to the Mariners of the Cano/Diaz trade, offloading it would be huge.

    Good bit of business by the Mariners. Dump Cano and Bruce's salaries and take on some great young prospects.

    Been very impressed with the Dodgers so far this season. 2 months in, and apart from one poor series against the Cards, I think they haven't lost another series.

    I know, it's only June 2nd, but everything is clicking at the moment. Long may it continue

    Deal is done with Phillies taking most of his salary apparently. Not sure who Mariners are getting in return but I doubt they will care.

    I hope he's a renter and doesn't get too settled wherever he lives as this is the 4th season in a row he's been traded mid season.

    Bruce hit 2 HRs tonight vs. Padres including a grand slam.

    Sympathies too to Big Papi who’s been shot in the DR. Injuries not life threatening apparently so at least that’s good to hear.
