The next game Ryan Zimmerman plays for the Nats will be his 1768 game played for the franchise (yes this time we are including Montreal)

That will make him the all time games played leader for the franchise (he is currently tied with Tim Wallach)

Fernando Tatis Jr is doing his rehab as an OF

It is pretty much acknowledged that he will need shoulder surgery this offseason. San Diego is hoping that if he plays the OF the rest of the season he can make it to the offseason since they believe there will be less wear and tear on his shoulder if he is in the OF instead of SS

Of course - the question is now raised of do they decide to keep him their next season (assuming the transition goes well)

Jake Arrieta is beyond done. 7 run first inning vs Milwaukee. Meanwhile the Brewers starter manages to strike out 10 scrub Cubs in a row. Rippa could probably strike out the side of these scrub Cubs. Man they’re so bad.

Corbin Burnes became the third person (and 2nd this season) to strike out 10 consecutive batters in a game.

Quote

Burnes finished the night with a career-high 15 strikeouts over eight scoreless innings, the second-most strikeouts in franchise history, behind Ben Sheets' 18 in 2004. The Brewers' director of team travel told Burnes that Sheets had texted him during the game, joking that he was getting nervous that Burnes was going to break his record.

"That's pretty cool he was watching it," Burnes said.

Miggy hit his 499 HR last night in Baltimore. The Tigers already said he is playing today as to not anger the baseball gods (Today is the last game of the Tigers road trip).

He is also up to 2950 hits (so he will need another season to reach 3000)

Lets anyone thought it was just Bobby Bonilla, this thread got RT'd on my feed this morning and shows all of the players that are getting deferred pay.

The highlight, IMO, is that the Braves made their final payment to Bruce Sutter this year. Bruce Sutter is now 68 years old.

All 10 guys struck out swinging.  Even in this "nobody ever makes contact" era, that's seriously impressive.

Bruce should send his agent a case of champagne every year.  $1.12m a year for 35+ years *AND* he gets a fat $9m additional check this year as final payment.

With Chris Davis retiring, from one of the weirdest games I've ever seen:

 

Man, that's great.  Has to be one of the very, very few times a position player has thrown more than one inning in at least the last 50 years.  And he hit 90 on the gun!  And had movement!  He legit looked good enough to be used in that role in the future*.

* - he was used one more time, 7 years later and gave up 2 runs in an inning.  He retires with a career 3.00 ERA, lower than that of Roger Clemens, Randy Johnson, Steve Carlton, and Nolan Ryan, to name just a few.

The Cubs are releasing Jake Arrieta

Never understood why they signed him.  He's been terrible since the second half of 2018.

Fun fact, Davis is only the third player to hit 50+ HR's and record a MLB pitching win.  

The other two are Babe Ruth and Jimmie Foxx.  

So, clearly, next stop, Cooperstown.

Speaking of Davis - the Os will pay him the remaining $23 million on his contract. He already had $6 million in deferrals and the Os agreed to pay him the rest of the $17 million over the next three years

That  tells me Ohtani hasn’t hit 50 yet.

Yeah - he has been in a slump

His HR last night was his first since July 28 and he has a grand total of 4 hits in the month of August

The Cubs are so incredibly fucking bad. This is barely a AA team at this point. Even today they gave up 5 runs in the 2nd inning. After the trades were made I said they would only win 20 games from that point on. That now feels overly generous.
