Can Verlander pitch his 2nd no-hitter of the season, he has 8 strikeouts but his pitch count is starting to get a little high.
OT: Verlander has a no-no through 5
DON'T JINX IT!!!!!
NEG-BANG WILL COME IF IT DOESN'T COME TO FRIUTON!!!!!!
Not cool, dude!
The jinx, not the negbang...that's warranted here
I didn't do it, the OP did because he brought it up when there's an unwritten rule not to mention it.
Jim Rome tomorrow. Should be a good show.
Thanks for jumping the gun.
You small minded man
Dont be that guy!
My first thought was "will some jackass have a thread up already about this on mgoblog?"
Either way there was no MgoCurse last time...
There was a half-mgocurse. The post knocked him down from a perfect game to a no hitter
IDK His stuff is nasty tonight.
Wow damn sorry I didn't realize people were so superstitious...
not to talk about it. It always never come to fruition. This is why you're neg-banged.
You have to realize that baseball players (and baseball fans) are probably the most superstitious people on the planet. Even more so than Stevie Wonder!
Hockey players/fans as well. Chelios wore the same shoulder pads from Wisconsin through the NHL. Roy talked to posts to help him.
Thats the SECOND TIME THIS YEAR! Just like the last guy, if he doesn't get his no-no I'm downvoting every other post you make.
this again??? shhhhtttt, come on!!
JINX JINX JINX JINX...
The 5th inning? Really? Come on man.
1. You don't say that, dude. C'mon.
2. His pitch count is anything but high.
3. He looks as good as ever tonight...
I'm more concerned that you thought it was a good idea to posbang your own post than that you posting this. You should be damned to eternal neg-nation for that alone.
Change the topic!!!
The appropriate thread title would have been: "You might want to turn on the Tiger's game" with the body: "Just sayin'. "
I wish I could reach through the screen and kick you in the nuts.
jinxes aren't real, right?
who ever lived would disagree with you. just saying.
If you believe you're playing well because you're getting laid, or because you're not getting laid, or because you wear women's underwear, then you ARE! And you should know that!
Anyone have a stream?
I believe you only aren't allowed to talk about it if you are actually playing the game or at the stadium.....I'm pretty sure hundreds of people are talking about it anyway...but what do I know I break mirrors and walk under ladders for fun.
Why can't we say it here? Also, I wish both teams would lose tonight.
And now he walked someone too. Brilliant bro.
I cant believe you posted it. I mean really, are you new to sports?
talking about no hitters causes Miguel Cabrera to turn double plays.
I hope to God you're talking about the one in the commercials and not Shannon Hogan. All the FSD chicks have been real hot. The Red Wings' girl as well.
Verlander is also on my fantasy team... I guess the excitement got the best of me
I missed his first one while on vacation. I hope I don't miss his second.
Thankfully Brantley was stranded.
He wasn't stranded, he was out at second.
Please do it Justin
LOL 38 downvotes, 2 upvotes -- and one of the upvotes is by the OP.
Base hit. It's over.
You're the worst, man
OP, I blame you for that single.
Oh well, just hold on and a win is a win and we're in first place.
It's over. You're horrible.
Seriously, what the hell is wrong with you
Ban-worthy if you ask me
Compulsively downvote you for a good while now
well I'll go get my pitchfork....
OP, you suck.
you burn in hell for this. do you know how good of a whip this would have been for my fantasy team. you are a bad bad man
OP, as punishment, you must write a 200-word apology. It must be posted to the MGoBoard by 11pm.
You sir have failed at life.
You had to jinx it
It's all your fault...
It's all your fault...
It's all your fault...
It's all your fault...
You made the baseball gods come down and fuck us solidly.
To the OP for jinxing it.
Broke #1 rule of a no no!
You are giving Josh Furman's dreadlocks a bad name.
Fuck you. Sorry but you ruined it
I think this entire page of posters adequately describes my feelings towards the OP..
Awful. Just awful
Can someone please post the FFFFF UUUUUU Paint picture. I cannot from my iPhone but it is needed!
Edit: Just a second or two late THANKS!
Verlander's a machine. That's three times this season he's at least taken a no-hit attempt deep into a game. How many no-hitters do you guys think he'll end up throwing in his career? I've got to think he's got a few more in him.
Not one...not two...not three...
He is a for sure All-Star along with Max. But shouldn't he be the AL started after this past month?
they didn't pull down the thread. Really surprised. JV should be an All Star, Avila should be an All Star, Sherzer should be in with his win total, Cabrera leads the AL in walks I believe, Martinez frightens me when he takes the plate and could get then nod, and Jhonny Peralta could be the best off season pickup we've had in a long long time. Very underrated, right up there with Polanco in my book. Wonder how many of our spots will go to the Stankiees, though.
Even worse is the fact that every team has to be represented. SO after the stupid New York fans vote in 4-5 starters (2-3 they don't deserve) every team has to be represented so guys like Jhonny Peralta and Victor Martinez might get left on the outside looking in.
Fan voting works so well. Joe Mauer has 1.5 million votes and has played in 9 games.
Avila is currently 2nd in voting, Cabrera 3rd, they should both get in for sure. Peralta is 5th in voting, probably won't get in.
JV's curve and change, are as good as his fastball. He sure was dealing today. The Indians never had a clue what was coming. They were just over powered.
-65 might be the lowest I have ever seen some get neg bombed! You deserve it though buddy!
If ever there has been an offence worthy of the banhammer, this is it
were some of the funniest I have seen in a long time -81 is pretty crazy. I hope you learned a valuable lesson here. Obvious but valuable
Of course I never see them until after the game because....
I also love that JV is such an animal that I can refer to this kind of thing as "these threads."
Do people do this on purpose? I am really glad the system still allows for a major negbang to the author of a post. I was happy to contribute.
YOU'RE DOING IT WRONG!
also, JV doesn't have a real pitch count. He is a freak. He can throw 130 and not get tired. Amazing pitcher man. Amazing. I love him.
like JV, pitch count is irrelevant IMO. However, bad mechanics, pitch counts become important because you don't want the pitcher to continue throwing with bad mechanics over and over until their arm explodes.
