Not many players ever played every game.

Lou Gehrig and Cal Ripken are famous for their durability for a reason.

I could see Walker coming in and replacing Harrison if he has another poor at bat.

They played every game except when injured or sick. I don't remember hearing about scheduled days off too much for the teams best players back in the day...I could be wrong though.

Okay, let's look at some players "back in the day":

Henry Aaron - between 1964 and 1972, during his prime, he played 1333 games in 9 seasons, an average of 148 per year, not 162.

Willie Stargell - between 1965 and 1975 in his prime (11 seasons), he played a total of 1518 games, an average of 138 per season.

Willie Mays - between 1962 and 1968 (7 seasons) during his prime, he played 1074 games, an average of 153 per season.

I just pulled some names from random, and avoided Mantle (lot of injuries). I suspect that your recollection of star players playing 160 games per season is inaccurate.

Hey, you may be right man, that's why I said "I may be wrong"...

I just remember collecting baseball cards that there were many players that that had the " * " beside the 162 in "italics", meaning they were tied for most games played that year.

To his credit Correia rebounded from a bad first two batters and had a quality start.

Agreed. He threw a solid game. The HR is his bugaboo. He just cannot seem to avoid giving up a bomb.

Twins beat the reds. Pirates can tie for first with a win today.

Chapman has really struggled since the Pirates pushed his first ER across.

Freak'n walks by relievers. Nothing irritates me more.

Why is your mop-up guy even in with that situation? Is the bullpen short?

I thought they would pull him after the walk. A classic example of losing by not putting your best out there.

No doubt...8 ER including 3 homeruns in 6 1/3 innings since (and including) the Pirates loss a couple of weeks ago.

Sometimes you have to look at the bigger picture for a game like this. Sell-out crowd, chance to be in first place, you come back to tie the game against the best pitcher in then AL. I agree. Need to put your best out there.

I wonder if Clint would have went with Resop to start that half inning and if he did, would he have had a shorter chain?

Give Cutch credit. He gave it a ride.

Casey. WHAT ARE YOU THINKING? 3-2 pitch and he has thrown three straight fast balls and you leave the bat on your shoulder?

And F-U Resop.
