Where the fuck is Toro?
« on: November 09, 2019, 08:02:31 pm »
One of my top 10 favorite moments of the season.

The combined no-no was special too.

Two motherfucking no hitters in one season. So many great moments.  23 to 2!!!! 21 to 1!!!

The Corbin Martin Mother's Day debut

Yordan's first homer

Yordan's upper deck shot

Reddick's catch to rob Pence

Combined no hitter

Verlander's no hitter

Grienke's near no hitter


Yep.   Great season with many great moments.  I'm sure others will have some more that I'd add to my list.

I was keeping it to regular season.

The ALCS walkoff is the uber highlight.

Ah, cool.

We were in the stands for Gurriel's 10th inning walkoff HR in June.  First time to see a walkoff in person, so that was a highlight for me.

Also, I'll add Yordan's blast 3-4 rows deep in the restaurant seats next to the batter's eye.  Yet another entry in the "never seen a homer hit there" database.

I'll add Yordan breaking the Jumbotron during batting practice.  It wasn't in game action, but I'll sure as hell remember it.

I love defense, so Reddick's catch is absolutely up there.  Correa made some spectacular plays too, and he made some throws that left me speechless.  Of course, the no-nos were special too.  Overall, lots of great baseball. 
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.
