3 mets bought in and have pictures of their dogs sitting together in the right field stands. Matz just gave up a home run, hit conforto's dog right in the snout.

I was listening to the Braves Radio Network when he hit that one. Didn’t realize he hit the cutout

My bad, jeff mcneals dog was hit. Poor willow.

I turned on the sound, they are talking about the dog cutouts

But even they don't shut up. It goes back to an inbred fear of "dead air," I guess, which in radio could be deadly to listenership. We can see what's going on , guys, it's okay.

Not only that, they could switch to a mic picking up ambient sound. It's perfectly possible to put a parabolic mic behind home plate and get the sound from the on-field action: the crack of a solid hit, the dull whump of a strike, and the cheering from the bleachers when the ball is in play.

Folks are just picking up covid in this league. Atlanta’s top 2 catchers have it. I wonder at what point the league just says “well folks, we tried”. And shuts back down

No, but we're 11.7% through the season and the Orioles are have second place in August. Wha? And if they'd held on in the ninth and beaten NYY the other night they'd be tied for first. Nobody can expect a team that's 225-1 to win the WS to do much... but in 2020who knows? With a shortened season and bunches of players testing positive weird shit sure can happen. Maybe it becomes a battle of attrition, the teams which keep their rosters in tact can luck out? Which city has the best medical? Baltimore has John Hopkins. Top notch. OTOH, the Orioles just traded away a good pitcher. Guess the management has tossed in the towel, as per usual. So the players have to overcome that too.

Odd/funny baseball news from the Florida Men:

Writing for the AP, Steven Wine wrote:MIAMI (AP) — Scrambling for replacements following a coronavirus outbreak, the Miami Marlins added a Moran, a Morin, two pitchers named Josh Smith and a former Olympic medalist in speedskating.
[...]
With more than half the team needing to be replaced, newcomers included infielder Eddy Alvarez a 30-year-old Miami native who won a silver medal in speedskating at the 2014 Winter Olympics and had yet to play in the majors.
[...]
The Marlins will try to keep doing so with a revamped pitching staff that includes right-hander Mike Morin and left-hander Brian Moran, and right-hander Josh A. Smith and left-hander Josh D. Smith, all recently acquired veterans.

Smith, Smith, Moran, and Morin sounds like a hell of a way to keep sports writers on their toes, and I have to admire Alvarez for managing to both win a silver in olympic speedskating and play major league baseball. He's probably earned a footnote in baseball history for that alone.
