Cubs #1: lose 54
Cubs #2: Win 54
Cubs #3: Other 54 (loss)

Dodgers #1: Lose 54
Dodgers #2: Lose 54
Dodgers #3: Lose 54

D-Backs #1: Win 54
D-Backs #2: Other 54 (win: Fluky play to start a big inning and wheel play reaction by McDonald. great win)
D-Backs #3: Lose 54

Reds #1: Win 54
Reds #2: Other 54 (win: Wild card of getting Cueto out of the game on his way to his 13th PNC win on another three hitter)
Reds #3: Other 54!!!!

With two or three exclamation points. This game defines "what you do with the other 54 that count." It all looked like a "lose 54." Sunday game, rookie pitcher, lifeless offense against another Red that just needs to throw his glove on the mound. McKenry got it started, Marte kept it going, Snider should have homered (Jerry Lane's umpiring crew did their best impression of the Marx Brothers), Cutch makes up for it, Gaby with a big pinch hit, McKenry second homer, Marte and Walker apply the coup de grace.

Way to get off the deck and keep fighting guys. :D

Season so far

Win 54: 3
Lose 54: 5
Other 54: 3-1

Fun stuff. It will be interesting to see how this develops as the season goes along. If either the Win or Lose buckets reach 54 before the end of the season, do you stop adding to them or recategorize earlier games into Other as needed?

One observation on the 54-54-54 theme ...

Is Jonathan Sanchez really slated to start 54 games for the Pirates? :D

Burghermeister:

There are two ways of looking at it:

1. Once you reach 54 wins and 54 losses every game by default becomes a "another 54"

or

2. (Which is what I am doing here) Categorizing them all the way to the end. For instance Win #55 may still be a "other 54" win or loss.

Beat me to it. What a colossally horrendous outing by McDonald. Pathetic. Sad that it took bonehead base running by Cardinals to limit it to 8 runs.

Calling this a Win 54. Our ace beat their pitcher. Timely hitting to add insurance runs. Any dispute?

I would have put this loss in the"other 54" category. Definitely a game that was there for the taking.

I agree. Tie game in the 7th inning -- anybody's ball game. Last night's game was an "other 54" loss.

I am calling today another "other 54."

1. McDonald escapes with one run in what could have been a total meltdown inning.
2. Bucs bats scratch and claw against the hottest pitcher in the League.

Any objections?

The premise is in the first post. Unless you're disagreeing with his evaluation of the Saturday game.

I can't tell which "TF" you are "W"ing about.
