stros in 4

Pulling for the Sox but looking forward to blank-faced TLR reaction shots after each base an Astro swipes off an inattentive pitcher.

Andy K, Wednesday, 6 October 2021 16:27 (eight months ago) link

i am nervous about this series, it feels like the closest matchup outside of dodgers/giants

na (NA), Thursday, 7 October 2021 17:00 (eight months ago) link

No in-game interviews with managers, players, team personnel, or any other lifeform, when I'm commissioner.

Andy K, Thursday, 7 October 2021 20:39 (eight months ago) link

Hey @MLB @MLBTV can we maybe talk about this "Get a 40 acre field full of 'em" comment by the announcer? pic.twitter.com/BWDmkbCFI8

out of nowhere i was thinking "wait what happened to yermin mercedes" and then i looked it up and was like "oh yeah tony larussa completely demolished his self-confidence and desire to play baseball"

na (NA), Friday, 8 October 2021 19:04 (eight months ago) link

nice to have a game on while working...

Bee OK, Friday, 8 October 2021 20:03 (eight months ago) link

back and forth games are always good.

Bee OK, Friday, 8 October 2021 20:35 (eight months ago) link

goodbye White Sox, we hardly knew you

Bee OK, Friday, 8 October 2021 21:26 (eight months ago) link

well this has gone poorly

mookieproof, Monday, 11 October 2021 01:00 (eight months ago) link

Getting weird.

Andy K, Monday, 11 October 2021 02:22 (eight months ago) link

I don't get this rule either

Bee OK, Monday, 11 October 2021 02:25 (eight months ago) link

So you can be like a defensive lineman and bat away the ball with no penalties?

Bee OK, Monday, 11 October 2021 02:28 (eight months ago) link

I love these kinds of games

frogbs, Monday, 11 October 2021 02:40 (eight months ago) link

as a Scorer, it is insulting to me that kopech got the win in this game

do your fucking job and reward tepera

mookieproof, Monday, 11 October 2021 05:38 (eight months ago) link

To answer my own question, as long as its not intentional

Bee OK, Monday, 11 October 2021 05:44 (eight months ago) link

He ran out of the baseline, he should be out

Bee OK, Monday, 11 October 2021 05:44 (eight months ago) link

Reminiscent of this?

i don't know the letter of the law but grandal was obviously not intentionally trying to deflect the ball or change his path to the base so i'm glad he/the team was not penalized

big ups to ryan tepera for implying that the astros are still cheating at home somehow in his post-game interview

na (NA), Monday, 11 October 2021 14:52 (eight months ago) link

Would love a revamp of how to qualify for a win. Would also fuck up 140 years of record keeping tho.

lol wut

Re sign stealing: Tony's idea to the league was to require the runner on second base turn towards CF when the sign is given to the catcher. Then turn back.

The idea was ignored

it's on the second baseman to cover the runner's eyes

"[My left arm is dangling like a noodle but] I most definitely would not be a liability to the team, do not take me out of this game, god damn it."

Andy K, Tuesday, 12 October 2021 18:51 (eight months ago) link

poor rodon : /

mookieproof, Tuesday, 12 October 2021 19:58 (eight months ago) link

No point in holding runners now, apparently.

Andy K, Tuesday, 12 October 2021 21:52 (eight months ago) link

fucking trashcans

FRAUDULENT STEAKS (The Cursed Return of the Dastardly Thermo Thinwall), Tuesday, 12 October 2021 21:59 (eight months ago) link

Wrap it up, Tony.

Andy K, Tuesday, 12 October 2021 22:12 (eight months ago) link

that's a paddlin'

mookieproof, Tuesday, 12 October 2021 22:27 (eight months ago) link

whatever one wants to claim about the efficacy of baseball managers, it's hard to overlook dusty

if only he hadn't let russ ortiz keep that ball
