Tracy Ringolsby had Bumgarner fifth on his MVP ballot, Scherzer ninth.

I wonder how he figures that?

These games the last two nights are Exhibits A and B on why they should keep the wildcard game a sudden death matchup. Each year you get to start the playoffs with two Game 7-type games.

Sadly, MLB will soon make it best-of-three or best-of-five, I'm sure.

If anyone here has pull with the league, please tell them not to do that.

Hit a grand slam off of me, will you?

Bumgarner answered with a two-run shot of his own in the bottom of the fourth to put the Giants back on top, 5-4, against the Mets.

They didn't dare pinch hit for him in the bottom of the fifth with a runner on second, two outs, and an 8-4 lead; he was called out on strikes; and then he was taken out.

Didn't pitch well last night against the Frightins, but it looked like he was going to collect a lucky W when the Jints stormed back from a 6-1 deficit to tie the game in the fifth, then rallied again the sixth with a pair of runs to take an 8-7 lead.

Bumgarner issued a 3-2 walk leading off the bottom of the sixth, and his owners knew, just knew, the run score.

First time in a regular season game since the last game of the 1972 season.

Right. Much of the rule (5.11) is devoted to when changes in the lineup lead to the elimination of the DH for the rest of that game.

It seems as if they want the DH, but don't want to hassle with managers making too many moves to maximize DH at bats or something.

Rereading 5.11.10 again, what does that mean that the pitcher can pinch hit or pinch run for the DH? That in the sixth inning the pitcher could pinch hit or pinch run for a DH who has been playing the game up to that point?

I would like to see that situation come up. (I would assume it would be injury related.)

Actually, re-read what you posted, "once the pitcher hits or runs for the DH, the DH rule is terminated."

So once he appears as a batter at all, there can be no DH.

He can't continue to hit since that would make him a DH at that point.

The story says that when he comes out of the game he won't be able to be replaced by a DH, but why couldn't he stay in the game himself as DH? And just be replaced as a pitcher?

This seems to be the rule, though it isn't exact:

(10) Once the game pitcher bats or runs for the Designated
Hitter, such move shall terminate the Designated Hitter
role for that club for the remainder of the game. The
game pitcher may pinch-hit or pinch-run only for the
Designated Hitter.

Another first in a long time tonight, Mad-Bum will hit for himself in an AL park.

Per ESPN, the first time a team will purposefully let their pitcher hit instead of have a DH.

I suggest we go out for beers again, and you let me explain how Pitcher Wins are the stat that least correlates to actual achievement.

Bring Kate Upton along.

And Brian Cashman.

Thai or Egyptian, I don't care.

Thanks.
