Bucs, there's a reason the Yankees paid YOU to take him...

The Bestest: bulldg4life: Talk about screwing the Pirates over if they have to go to the bullpen in the third inning of game 1
Is it really time to take him out? Damn...
I see you are unfamiliar with the joys of AJ Burnett...


Several years ago the Braves had a bunch of cash to burn and were looking at signing a big name free agent pitcher. The choices were Derek Lowe and AJ Burnett.

At the time, I think the Braves weren't too upset that AJ's wife didn't want to move that far south.

Then again, Lowe went speeding through Atlanta drunk when he wasn't pitching tons of worthless innings.

WOW.  Reminds me of Rick Ankiel.
 
2013-10-03 06:17:29 PM  
Holy balls..

Ok, you have to pull him

I'm rooting for my Cards but Clint's gotta pull AJ..

Unless Clint has already written this game off.

Considered the possibility. Playing against the opponents ace and just finished a one and done game. Might just let this one go if it goes south to fast. Keep the bullpen rested and play for taking game two away.
 
2013-10-03 06:17:57 PM  
Game. Blouses.
 
2013-10-03 06:18:13 PM  
Wow, the FAIL is strong in this one

Goodnight folks
 
2013-10-03 06:21:03 PM  
AJ, when we told you to put zeroes on the scoreboard, we didn't mean for you to hide them in tens.
 
2013-10-03 06:21:03 PM  
OK. You have my permission to pull Burnett.

/ game over, man.
 
2013-10-03 06:21:09 PM  
Man, what a low scoring game. Rams with the only touchdown in the game, up 7-0 on the Steelers in the 3rd.

Wait, this is a baseball game? Ouch.

/maybe you should leave Burnett in the game now. Bullpen going to be hurting now for the rest of the series
//however long that might be
 
2013-10-03 06:21:59 PM  
Are there any outs yet?
 
2013-10-03 06:22:13 PM  
And the close up of AJ looking old...
 
2013-10-03 06:25:39 PM  
A three-rbi single!
 
2013-10-03 06:25:47 PM  
Gomez was probably the only reliever in the bullpen that had his spikes on and was even remotely prepared to go in to the game.

Pirates fans are still just happy to be here.

Cardinals fans are pissed Jay on 2nd with no one out got stranded.
 
2013-10-03 06:33:13 PM  
What's going on in... Good Lord, they can't even beat the Rams?  Man, the Steelers suck this year!

So the Boston Beaneaters vs. the New York Trolly Dodgers game starts at 5:37 pm Pacific. 5:37. WTF is up with that? Was 5:18 all booked up? Couldn't schedule the game to start at 5:23?

Sin_City_Superhero: 5:37. WTF is up with that?


Three and a half hours after the first game?

Yep... that's about right. Still more pissed about the bottom of the 2nd.

No but it seems like TBS' old scheduling methods carried over to the MLB.

Coverage starts at 5:30... its 4 minutes for the pregame from the booth, two minutes for commercials, one minute back to give defensive alignment and line ups, then first pitch.

That makes no sense. A 4 minute pre-game? This is the post-season. If I've learned anything from the NFL it's that the pregame show for a post-season game must be at least twice as long as the game that follows it, with at least 26 former players, former coaches and analysts weighing in. And triple those numbers for the Superbowl Big Game TM.
 
2013-10-03 06:51:35 PM  
That was destroyed.
 
2013-10-03 06:52:30 PM  
Bucs on the board

Yeah... that one was hit hard. At least it was a solo.
 
2013-10-03 06:54:32 PM  
Alvarez has killed the Cards at the plate all season. Wow.

Don't give TBS any ideas. They'll have to preempt another Big Bang Theory rerun.

"Trolly dodger" was a pejorative term Manhattanites used to refer to Brooklynites.

So, what's Waino's pitch count? Gotta figure he's done after seven today, right? Especially if they're talking about him going on short rest for game four.

FYI, the pitch count is shown at the top of the right-hand graphic where the balls and strikes are being shown.
 
2013-10-03 07:03:11 PM  
Through the five hole and it's 8-1.
 
2013-10-03 07:03:34 PM  
Jeez, you'd think the Pirates have never been in a postse...oh.
 
2013-10-03 07:03:56 PM  
And no runner on 3rd.

One of the things I like about TBS's baseball coverage is the pitch count number in the infographic.

phyrkrakr: game four


If it even happens.

FOX and the MLB channel do it too, it's just in the upper-left graphic with the outs and score.

I think PNC Park will help the Pirates out.

And I say this as a Cardinals fan. This won't be easy. The relievers have plenty of time to screw this up for us.

I guess I just wasn't seeing it or something, but I'm only seeing speed and count on the graphic, not the total pitches.

Adams sounds fat.
 
2013-10-03 07:22:58 PM  
Ok, that was like watching a meat loaf round third base.

Adams is a big big boy.
He's not small...
 
2013-10-03 07:28:25 PM  

W.C.fields forever: Adams sounds fat.


He's just big boned!

/go cards
 
2013-10-03 07:33:29 PM  
Gotta be Waino's last inning
 
2013-10-03 07:39:44 PM  
OK, I'm sure someone's been watching the entire season and can tell me this:  Not mathematically, just your gut feeling, what are the chances we'll see the Rays and the Cardinals in the Series?  Being a born St. Louisian but a lifelong Floridian, that would be a unique Series for me -- I could root for both sides. Never, ever had that happen before.
 
2013-10-03 07:46:15 PM  
Cardinals have as good or better chance as any to make or win the WS
Rays would need a 69 type miracle...
