Sound muted at the office.
They have been talking utter crap for most of the night… did you know that Joe Maddon invented the 'utility man' and Ben Zobrist was the first?

Easily four inches off the plate.

Maddux should channel his namesake and just throw it way out there all day.

BOT 7th - 8-1 Astros.  Austin Maddox relieves Reed, pitched yesterday and is Boston's 6th pitcher today.  Gurriel-Marwin-McCann due up

Yuli doing Yuli things, after nine pitches grounds to short and a Bogaerts double-clutch allows Yuli to reach.  Runner on 1st, 0 out, Marwin up
The feared Pomeranz 2017 post-season ERA: 18.000.
Which is not as good as 4 of his teammates who pitched today. He and Reed are tied.
Where the fuck is Toro?

On a full count, Altuve finally has mercy on the Red Sox and strikes out.

END 7th - 8-1 Astros

Only after Hernandez extended the at-bat.  Should've walked a couple of pitches prior.

I feel like Hyundai put that "Sweet Caroline" spot in the 8th inning as a nod to Red Sox fans.   Kinda plays like a troll job in the current game situation. 
60% of the time... it works everytime.

The punchabilty of Pierzinski's face is immensely ironic.

TOP 8th - 8-1 Astros.  Gregerson relieves Devo.  Pedroia-Benintendi-Betts due up

On the first pitch, Pedroia hits a weak grounder to third, Bregman tries to barehand but can't make the play.  Brock Holt pinch runs for him.
 Runner at 1st, 0 out, Benintendi up

I hate that fucking commercial.  I mean, I was always unlikely ever to buy a Hyundai, but now I most certainly won't.

I heard the pony in the fight remark and changed the audio to my small screen, not missing anything by not listening to them clowns.

I tried playing the radio feed from my phone but it is about 5 minutes behind the tv stream.

What about if you - and three friends - show up drunk, late and in golf gear?

Duh. You immediately get summoned to sit in seats with Bagwell, because PARTY.

Gregerson hasn't been paying attention.  To get outs, you don't have to fool the hitter...

Benintendi falls behind 1-2, works the count full, then whiffs.  Runner at 1st, 1 out, Betts up

Seemed to hurt himself on one, too. Poor guy not having the best game.
