Urquidy is the 2nd Mexican pitcher in MLB to win a WS start, along with Fernandomania.  Jaime Garcia with the Cards is the only other to start one.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

According to Elias, Urquidy is the second pitcher since the LCS began in 1969 to have his first career postseason start be a scoreless outing in the World Series (also Jon Lester in 2007).

Wow!
Nothing worthwhile comes without pain, ask any Astros fan.

When Soto does his annoying back and forth dance in front of the box he reminds me of that weird Future Islands guy on Letterman.

Sam Herring. He is the younger brother of a college roommate of mine. He is a great guy and an amazing performer. His Future Islands persona is truly a character. His ex-girlfriend used to date the lead singer of Skinny Puppy.

That's what he was trying to do. And almost did. He beats out that bunt, he steals, maybe Mike drives HIM in with an easy single, etc.

This. Good idea. Bad execution. Too much toward the pitcher.
Often wrong, but never in doubt.

If Pressly is unusable, why not disable him and get somebody on the roster that might be able to contribute?

Who the fuck would that be?

That's an easy double play if Harris doesn't kick that ball.

Altuve was shifted left of second. Kicking it probably kept it in the infield.

Who the fuck would that be? You seemingly find criticism of everything easy.

Maybe 2018 Colin Moran is available via time warp.

Frank Howard had three or four great years. Not a HoFer but he was very good.

I saw Hondo play (one game) in that old shithole that was the stadium the Redskins played in before their new digs. Me and a couple of hundred of my closest friends. That was before they exited for Arlington.

I saw Howard play in Austin more than once with the Victoria Rosebuds of the Texas League. Disch Field (now gone) had a tall 400 foot deep CF fence, and Howard hit a bullet line drive which was still rising when it left the park.

He was a baaad man. But, I understand, a gentle giant and gentleman.

With all the shit rightly thrown at Joe Buck for being crap at his job, the thing at which he is empirically bad is describing the set up.  In an era when teams shift on a regular basis, we - the tv viewer - never know because the directors are obsessed with close-ups and reaction shots while Buck is just smug as a bug in a rug in the booth reading stats passed to him by a producer.

Then there's a ground ball that should go through a hole in the infield.  "Ground ball" Buck will helpfully note.  And then it's straight to an infielder you had no idea was fucking there and Buck describes it as a routine out.

Just completely fucking useless.

TBS's broadcasts showed "DEFENSIVE SHIFT IS ON" right underneath the score bug, so that the viewer knows even when looking at home plate.  I thought that was useful without being too intrusive.

Of course, I'd love a live Statcast plot of the fielders, but we're probably a ways away from that.
