30 Results for month: 06/2018

Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 7/1/18

Weekend blog mode continues. I'm on three games for Sunday as of now and will pst one of them here as the daily free play. Brand new month gets underway, and that's more than play with me. My season to date numbers are still pretty good, but June was a dreary exercise that resulted in a net loss following two excellent months to start the season. I'll have ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Saturday 6/30/18

Weekend blog mode. Thrilled to see June come to an end, as following two excellent months to start the season, this one was not very good. I'll hope the final day of the month gives me some positive momentum heading into July. I've got a pair of full game sides on Saturday, and will also be making a First Half selection on the Twins-Cubs game. I'll use ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Friday 6/29/18

Heading into weekend blog mode early due to some time constraints tonight. So let's just head directly to the Friday free play, and this one will be north of the border in the CFL. WINNIPEG at HAMILTON TAKE: OVER 58 First things first, there's no longer any value to be had in this cash between the Blue Bombers and the Ti-Cats, at least as far as ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Thursday 6/28/18

Chris Bosio is out as pitching coach of the Detroit Tigers. Bosio was let go after making what was deemed to be an insensitive comment to a team employee. The organization made it clear they have a zero tolerance policy as far as this behavior is concerned. I don't have any idea what Bosio said nor who he said it to. It doesn't really matter as it's none ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Wednesday 6/27/18

Rookie managers are supposed to get a bit of a honeymoon grace period. Mistakes are going to get made and that's just something to be expected. So while it is looking to me like Dave Martinez is in over his head as the manager of the Washington Nationals, I guess I'll reluctantly give him some room to improve. But make no mistake, Martinez has completely ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Tuesday 6/26/18

I don't even remember which radio host I worked with came up with the term, just that whenever I started ranting about something, it was referred to as "Mount Cokin exploding" and that was a pretty accurate description. The lava was definitely spewing on Monday night as I watched Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo go the reactive, rather than the proactive ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Monday 6/25/18

Staying in weekend blog mode for one more day. I played just one game on Sunday but got a nice result as the Cardinals blew up Jhoulys Chacin and paid a decent plus money return in the win against the Brewers. Solid weekend and a full head of steam once again heading to a new week. Quick note on Monday's The Las Vegas Sportsline (2-3PDT, ESPN Las Vegas, ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Sunday 6/24/18

Weekend blog mode continues. I ended up playing just one game on Saturday, and admittedly got pretty lucky. Daniel Mengden was terrible for Oakland, with the White Sox putting up a first inning five-spot. Still a 5-2 game in the fifth and Chisox starter Dylan Covey, who was getting grounders galore with his hard sinker, went down with an injury. The White ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Saturday 6/23/18

Weekend blog mode. Friday was okay. Easy winner with Oakland Game One, although I bucked the doubleheader split trend and lost with the A's in Game Two. CFL 2-0 with really easy wins by Winnipeg and Hamilton. Watch out for the Ti-Cats. June Jones can still coach football and he's going to get whatever the max is out of that team. Quick plug for the personal ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Friday 6/22/18

The Giants were 3-0 winners against the Padres on Thursday night. This piece won't be about the result of the game, which I happened to lose. It's about how too many managers are largely no longer anything more than caretakers who are in charge of strategy but not much else. Here's what took place that got my blood boiling, and that's not an exaggerati... More

Cokin’s Corner, Thursday 6/21/18

In case you missed it, the Philly Phanatic injured a fan in Wednesday's game against the Cardinals. The popular mascot was launching hot dogs to fans during the game when the mishap occurred. He fired one off using the launcher like he always does. But this time it headed straight toward a female fan in the stands who was somewhat incapacitated due to an ... More

Cokin’s Corner, Wednesday 6/20/18

Mark down Tuesday as one of those days I know are going to take place, but they simply aren't much fun when they happen. I've included bullpen analysis as a pretty important factor when putting together my line projections and plays this season. This has worked out pretty well as I've been fortunate enough to avoid bullpenitis for the most part. But not ... More
