You suck at hitting on mmogo

You suck at hitting on mmogo Submitted by Rskingdom on March 21, 2019 - 12:27am. If most of your choices mattered, it could be MLB stubs a match that is great. But it programmed. The majority of your games become shutouts. I played 20 of my first 50 games and a year were shutouts for me or from me. I turned each of the sliders in my favor and the game ended 1-0. It's horrible. And also the rtts seems repeative with no true purpose to your carreer. They want more off area choices and...

Dodgers’ Corey Seager finds ‘adrenaline, excitement’ and a test in Cactus League debut

GLENDALE, Ariz. — Day after day from the start of spring training, Dodgers coach Dino Ebel wielded his fungo bat, directing ground balls first directly at Corey Seager then progressively to each side, challenging Seager’s surgically-repaired hip and – eventually – his surgically-repaired elbow. But there were some things Ebel couldn’t simulate. In the first inning of Seager’s first game against fellow major-leaguers since last April 29, the Chicago Cubs had a runner on first with one out and Ant...

THE GAME: Corey Seager hit a home run in his second at-bat against major-league pitching and the Dodgers tied the Chicago Cubs 4-4 on Wednesday night in Mesa, Ariz.

Tyler Skaggs shakes off rough first inning in Angels’ loss to Indians

THE GAME: The Angels lost 4-2 to the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night in Goodyear, Ariz. PITCHING REPORT: Left-hander Tyler Skaggs returned to a Cactus League game for the first time since he was scratched from a start because of forearm fatigue from working on a new pitch.

Angels make Mike Trout’s 12-year, $426.5-million deal official

TEMPE, Ariz. — Maybe all the mystery about Mike Trout’s future shouldn’t have been such a concern after all. “This is where I wanted to be all along,” Trout said in a statement included in the Angels’ official announcement of their 12-year, $426.5-million deal with their superstar. A day after the news broke, the Angels finalized the deal on Wednesday night, completing the largest contract in the history of North American sports.

Dodgers’ Clayton Kershaw accepts delay in start of his season

GLENDALE, Ariz. — For the first time since 2010, Clayton Kershaw will watch the pageantry of Opening Day from the dugout and he knows how that will make him feel. “Disappointed,” the Dodgers left-hander said after throwing to hitters for the first time this spring Wednesday. “Being out there on Opening Day is special and I don’t take that for granted. I love being out there – just what it signifies, being part of Dodgers history. All that stuff, it’s not lost on me. I love doing that. But when y...

Five spring training trends you might have missed

Spring training doesn’t count, right? The wins, losses and ties sure don’t, but every now and then something happens on a back field in Florida or Arizona that baseball hasn’t seen before.

Here are five interesting wrinkles you might have missed from the past month. 1. SLOW PLAYS The Red Sox brought back eight of the 10 pitchers who contributed...

Cross another potential free agent off your 2020-21 wish list.

Why most pro athletes — including Mike Trout — are worth every penny of their big money salaries

Angels center fielder Mike Trout has succeeded as a low-key player in a low-key market, and he obviously has decided the stability and the lifestyle were worth agreeing to a 12-year, $426.5 million deal now and staying in Orange County, rather than waiting for 2020 and shooting for a $500 million-plus contract. (Photo by Kyusung Gong, Orange County Register/SCNG) Angels shortstop Andrelton Simmons is greeted by teammate Mike Trout as he returns to the dugout after hitting a home run in a 2017...

TOKYO — Ichiro drew all the cheers. Most everyone else on the Seattle Mariners did all the hitting.

Defending World Series champion Red Sox on repeat for 2018

BOSTON (AP) — Somehow, Boston Red Sox manager Alex Cora looked at Mookie Betts’ MVP season and saw room for improvement. Not the .346 batting average that was the highest in the major leagues. Not the career-high 32 homers, either. But Betts drove in just 80 runs last year while spending almost all of his […]

Dodgers’ Walker Buehler looks strong in late spring debut

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Dodgers ace-in-waiting has done more waiting than pitching this spring. But right-hander Walker Buehler finally got in a game Tuesday night, throwing 46 pitches over 2-2/3 innings (many traveling a healthy 98 mph). He gave up three singles, struck out two and was charged with a run when his last baserunner eventually scored. “It was good – a little erratic, a little all over the place,” Buehler said. “But that’s what these games are for.” It might have been Buehler’s first ...
