Shitty fucking game. I was hoping Rondon was going to come in to face Adames in the 4th, but whatever. Springer, Brantley and Correa 0-13. Miley proved himself playoff dispensable. Altuve came to play and there's life in Alvarez. CFM showed up. Go get 'em tomorrow.

Springer is 0-for the series.

Adames on the top step yelling "Fuck you!" to someone after his home run.

Probably Ty.

It makes sense that they wouldn’t be able to handle more than a couple thousand people on the cellular network around the park.

I thought WiFi was an MLB requirement.

I hope Correa comes around soon.

2 highpoints of the broadcast:

1. An ump texted Girardi saying the reason Pierzynski never got a concussion was there was nothing to concuss

2. Girardi said Steinbrenner complained about him dropping foul tips and wanted them to practice catching them


Otherwise it's been a garbage dump.

Girardi sends the runner on 3-2. AJ doesn't.

Is Tucker that much of a threat to run?

30 bags at RR

Let's not start sucking each others' dicks just yet.  It's the 5th inning of a 1-run game.

I'm gonna follow your lead on this.

My oldest son was watching a game with me last season and told me I would hate Bregman if he was on another team... don't care, he is an Astro and I love his strut.

I was just thinking the same thing.

Whenever I see Poche, I think of Ponche!

Same

After hearing the tomahawk chop chant all game long I've decided to root for the shit birds. I'm still undecided about the Dodgers and Nats. I guess the Nats.

That button. That button right there is easy. Try harder.

Alanis is playing now. She's unmoved.

The co-ard fan next to me says that "What's Up?" Is her favorite song in the whole world.

"I told them I'd never done anything in business without setting goals," McLane said. "I wanted them to tell me how many games we were going to win that season. They looked real strangely at me and finally Bill said, `Drayton, we don't do that in baseball.'

"I asked what we did in baseball. They said we play them one at a time."

There was an awkward pause as Wood and Howe apparently considered how best to deal with this new boss.

"Well, Drayton, how many games do you think we're going to win?" Wood asked.

"I've been thinking about that," he replied. "Why don't we try for 130? Bill looked at me like I was crazy. He said, `Drayton, this is going to be the 124th year of major league baseball, and if we win 130 games, we'll do something that hasn't been done in 124 years.'

No doubt.  I was thinking as much as anything about the insanity of offering such a deal.  They need multiple pitchers. Not just one. That contract would put them on the hook for so much money over just 4 players I can't imagine how they'd put together much more a team.

That would break my heart.

That would be beyond the pale. They have got to find a way to do better than that. Like switching to the later game in the territories of the two teams. Or putting the late game on an alternate FOX network until the big FOX can pick it up. But since it is already on FOX1 I suppose there isn't an alternate network and it is a college football gameday. This has the possibility of being really fucked up.

They've put them on FX before.

Hopefully if you're on a plane it allows or denies you access to a game depending on if you're flying over a given team's airspace.

Absolutely. The mlb.tv app utilizes the location function and I have to use the ‘in market streaming’ option when flying out of Texas because mlb.tv is blacked out.

If the stream is started it doesn’t check again, so i’m good on the way in tonight with mlb.tv.

Doors are closing on the plane in 5 minutes. Hoping to hear Miley’s first batter.

I have been consistently able to stream mlb.tv on the airplane WiFi this season.

Correa not in the lineup again. I wonder if he will be on the playoff roster?



Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

I was told Sunday that the starting lineup we saw in that game was the starting lineup for the ALDS. I was also told that day that Carlos was not hurt. Not sure which statement was conjecture.

I think Correa's defense alone makes the team better. I would be surprised to not see him starting in the ALDS assuming he is even marginally healthy.

7 out of the last 15 games are against the Angels.  Ohtani is getting surgery and is out for the rest of the season. 


Trout injured, too

Upton out, too.
