The cup broke


This Monday at the Lidom stand, today there is no four-way tie. Now the tie is double per couple. Licey and Estrellas with 8-6 and Aguilas and Gigantes with 6-8 after yesterday’s results.

Licey made 3 runs in the ninth to win Gigantes 5-4, electrifying game decided by Colombian Jorge Alfaro’s hit against Fernando Rodney.

Junior Lake hit a pinch-hit two-run homer in the ninth, making it 4-1 as the Stars beat the Eagles. Very good individual performances, but things are getting tighter for Gigantes and Aguilas.

Will the final be between Licey and Estrellas? I wait a little longer, because there are still 4 games left per team.

THEY GO: It is not that they “leave”, like the political refrain of past and recent times. It is that Zoilo Almonte and Yoenis Céspedes, gardeners of the Aguilas Cibaeñas (among others), left. That is why we, the witnesses and workers of Dominican baseball, feel “sorry” for the manager and the manager of each club because the matter is not so easy. Zoilo leaves for other commitments in Asian baseball (Japan).

In the round robin, Zoilo was 12-for-46, with a .261 average, 2 home runs and 9 RBIs. Céspedes, on his side, had 12-3 without anything else. In the regular season he hit .239 with 4 Hrs, 11 RBIs. Generally speaking, his contribution was poor. He had no impact.

THE BLEACHED: The number of shutouts that have been taking place in the round robin is incredible. The Aguilas Cibaeñas lead with 5 applied and 3 received, then there is the case of the Giants, with one applied and 4 received, the Licey has received one and the Stars 3 applied and one received. The pitching, then, has been far superior to the offense. Licey is the team with the lowest collective batting rate at .227 and the Aguilas have the best ERA at 2.80.

ONE MORE: A few days ago in Listín we published a work by the forty-year-olds who have been performing in the round robin. Fernando Rodney and Raúl Valdés lead with 45 years, Yunesky Maya with 41 and Alfredo Simón with 40. But there is also the Mexican Oliver Pérez, from the Stars, with 40, with two relief starts so far. Another who is close is Emilio Bonifacio who is advancing towards 38, but now he is hitting like in his best days.

THE BONI: By the way, Emilio Bonifacio hit a terrific bases-loaded homer on Saturday to decide the blue victory over the Giants. And by dawn on Sunday he was the leader in everything: in runs scored with 9, RBIs with 12, extra-base hits with 7, in total bases with 28. And he is said to be an “old man.” How come he has rejuvenated, what is he eating? Yesterday, by the way, he scored from first (run and hit) in the 8th. inning, with a hit by Ronny Mauricio, to tie the shares at one. The man is like a little boy.


Left-handed reliever Gregory Soto was traded from Detroit to the Phillies in a 3-for-2 deal. Soto had been the team’s closer last year, with 30 saves and a 3.28 ERA, though an odd 2-11 win-and-loss record. lost. In 60 innings he had 60 strikeouts.

The Seattle Mariners signed outfielder AJ Pollock, formerly of the Chicago White Sox. Seattle bolsters their outfield even further as they recently added Teoscar Hernandez, acquired from Toronto.

A gossip arises in the networks. Recently, the president of the Baseball Federation Juan Núñez had declared that they would not count on Starling Marte because he will not have recovery time from a recent operation on a muscle in his abdomen, performed on November 3. But Mars would have issued an instagram message on Friday, denying such a version. And what does Juan the vegan say?

The Los Angeles Dodgers have listed Trevor Bauer for assignment because they don’t want him back. This gentleman comes from a legal mess accused of assault and forced sex and by 2023 he would earn 35.3 million dollars… Nothing simple… If no one takes it, he would be a free agent and would play for the minimum salary.

Dominican pitcher Oliver Ortega was claimed by Minnesota, as he had been placed on assignment by the Los Angeles Angels. Ortega, a native of Nagua, is 26 years old and has pitched in MLB in 2021 and 2022. This past year he had 27 appearances, a 1-3 record and a 3.71 ERA.
