The Mets on the 24th win knocked the the Brewers out of the ranks of the undefeated... and down to 5th place and 2nd favorite. The undefeated Phil's (4-0 25%) are the new 1st&favs. Up today: the defending SDDC champion Reds, and this preseason's favs, the D'backs, attempt to stay relevant in this season's race.

Next up: the Cubs, Pirates, and Mighty Rangers attempt to get back in the thick of the SDDC race... kinda like the D'backs just did by beating the defending champ Reds. OTOH the Marlins, Mariners, and Sabo's Padres will certainly retain the dreaded "~0"... win -or- lose.

Yesterday the Twins lost their dog game debut, and became the 3rd team to bite the dust in the SDDC race. The Phil's (4-0 25%) remain 1st&fav. Next up: Miami finishes their yearly visit to the Barkyard. This is an elimination game for the Marlins. Then defending SDDC champ Cincinnati start their yearly Barkyard visit.

The top five favorites are rounded out with the 1st place Phillies (4-0 21%), Brewers (5-1 21%), Rockies, and D'backs (4-3 9%). OTOH the Pirates were hung with the dreaded "~0"... while the defending SDDC champion Reds were eliminated. Today: Sabo's Padres try to hang the dreaded "~0" upon the Braves.

Yesterday: In the proxy war... Sabo's Padres high-A Storm lost a few leads, the last one in the 9th, and got beat by the hated Dodgers high-A Quakes. This was Sabo's 2nd trip to The Diamond... and his 44th pro game overall. Cost: free parking (we got waved in the employee lot for no reason), my tix $13, Sabo's tix $1. Next up: Sunday the Mets have an elimination game in Phoenix.

Today: The Mets (only for now and just mathematically) stayed alive by beating the D'backs. Next up Tuesday: Milwaukee plays in front of the Pittsburgh dogs. A Brewers win would eliminate the Indians, Mets, and World Series champion Astros... and proly make Milwaukee All-Star Sabo-Metric favorites. Also on Tuesday: the A's, tied for 2nd and the 6th fav, start a critical stretch where they play in three of the next four dog games.

Sabo's never seen the A's before... but he'll be seeing them two of these three games. The first is his Padres yearly Dog Days of Summer... their general dog day in The Park at the Park. This is Sabo's second biggest day of the year (second to May Day... he is Sabo, of course).

Yesterday: the Brewers win in Pittsburgh tied them for 4th with, and made them co-favorites with, the Dodgers... while also causing our first mass extinction event of 2018. The Indians (0-1), Mets (5-4), Yankees, World Series champion Astros (1-1), and my Mighty Red Sox all dined on that dirt sandwich. Yesterday & today: the A's moved into undisputed 2nd place, and are now 5th favorite, by sweeping Sabo's Padres in the Barkyard. Saturday: A win by the 1st place and 3rd favorite Phillies would proly make them the new All-Star Sabo-Metric favorite... while also hanging the Nationals with that dreaded "~0".

Projections by All-Star Sabo-Metrics. Not even a gratuitous sports post.

Last week the 1st place Phillies hung the dreaded "~0" on the Nationals, and were made All-Star Sabo-Metric favorites to win the SDDC championship. The Dodgers (6-1 26%) and Brewers (6-1 25%) are now close 2nd & 3rd favorites.
  • Today: For most dogs, our St.Louis-Chicago-Indianapolis-Cincinnati trip last month would be their big trip for the year... but not for Sabo. That trip starts today. @@Earlier Sabo & JQ & me spent the afternoon in Coronado. Then I picked up my rental car at the Hotel Del. Now Sabo & me are off to Valencia to visit our friend C, and spend the night.

  • Tomorrow: We head over the Grapevine, and then up CA-99 through Visalia (start new mileage for Sabo), through Fresno and Manteca, over to a short stretch of I-5 south, to I-205 (end new mileage), to our hotel in Oakland. Then we're going to walk over to the Oakland-Alameda Co Coliseum and join our friend J, who we went to the Giants game back in 2015, for the A's game. An Indians win would hang the dreaded "~0" on the 2nd place A's.

  • June 30th: Three years ago Sabo & me drove to the Giants game, then spent three days cruising the coast southbound, stopping at (pretty much) every dog beach on the way. This year, after going to the A's game, we're going to spend six days cruising the coast northbound, and stopping at (hopefully) every dog beach on the way. We'll spend this night in Ft.Bragg. Meantime back in San Diego... the Pirates begin their yearly visit to the Barkyard. They'll need to win this three game series to avoid being eliminated.

  • July 1st: We'll spend this night in Arcata. We're also going to visit with another J, who is actually our friends D & C son attending Humboldt State. Meanwhile... in Phoenix, the Giants play in the first of two "dog box" games.

  • July 2nd: We'll spend this night in Lincoln City, Oregon. Meanwhile... in Phoenix, the Card's need a win to avoid elimination.

  • July 3rd: We'll spend this night in Ocean Shore, Washington.

  • The 4th of July: We'll celebrate our country's birthday by visiting to estreem north-west corner: Pt.Flattery Washington. Our cruise up the coast then completed, we'll head inland to Bremerton, Washington to spend the night (and prolly hide from the fireworks).

  • July 5th: Sabo will take his first ferry ride to Seattle, where we'll see the Angels-Mariners game. After the game we're driving to Olympia, WA for the evening. The Mariners need to win to avoid elimination.

  • July 6th: Long drive south on I-5 to Redding CA for the evening.

  • July 7th: Another long drive south on I-5 back to Valencia.

  • July 8th: We are going to spend the morning in LA. Then back home to the Sabotat... and back over to the Hotel Del to return my rental car.

Next up: In game #84 yesterday, Sabo's Padres hung the dreaded '~0' on the pre-season favorite D'backs. However, the big news in the SDDC world is the Dodgers organization... whose season turns on this stretch of 5/9 next dog games. That hated team from LA invades the Barkyard for four games... as co-favorites with the first place Phillies (5-0 27%).
  • Padres Sweep !!!1!

    Honestly, the Padres announced they weren't going to compete in 2017 and 2018. To a die hard Padres fan, like Sabo, that makes this series, the last and longest visit by the hated Dodgers, akin to the post-season. A sweep would be likened to winning the World Series. A sweep would eliminates the hated Dodgers from the SDDC race.

  • Padres win 3-1:... hangs the '~0' on the hated Dodgers.
  • Split Series:... makes the hated Dodgers ~5th-fav at ~10%.

  • Dodgers win 3-1:

    Makes the hated Dodgers sole favorites at ~39%. Eliminates the Braves (2-2 ~0), White Sox (1-1 ~0), Card's, Angels, Mariners, Orioles, and the survivor of the Nationals-Pirates game.

  • Dodgers sweep:

    This might well make Sabo despondent. It would also make the hated Dodgers odds-on favorites at ~73%. The Tigers (1-0 ~0), Royals (1-1 ~0) and Giants would be eliminated, in addition to the teams listed above. Nobody wan't to see a despondent little dog.

Well... we have a pretty bummed out doggie. The hated Dodgers won the series 3-1, and are now the sole favorite to win the SDDC. Also we had a mass extinction event... as the Pirates, then the Card's (4-2), Nationals (5-4), Braves (2-2), White Sox (1-1), Mariners (1-3), Angels (0-2), and my Mighty zombie Red Sox were eliminated. In a correction, the Orioles (~0) were not eliminated.

Next up: heading into the MLB All-Star break, the Cubs make their yearly pilgrimage to the Barkyard. They need a sweep to avoid elimination. Also tomorrow, first place Philadelphia plays in Miami. A Phillies win proly makes them favorites once again.

The Cubs stayed alive by sweeping Sabo's Padres... while the former first place Phillies faltered from the ranks of the undefeated. Next up: even though that MLB season is on it's all-star hiatus, doesn't mean the SDDC season must needs pause. This season it doesn't, as Sabo will be making his third annual trip to Loanmart Field (fka The Epicenter). A RC Quakes win would make the Dodgers organization odds-on favorites at ~60%, and eliminating the Giants (both San Francisco & San Jose), as well as the Tigers (1-0 ~0), Royals (1-1 ~0), and Orioles (~0). Also... with this game Sabo will have attended games of all eight members of the A California League.
