Nick Pivetta is a little biatch

/still hope he wins

Sox bats are mashing right now and Houston doesn't have anybody to change that.

Greinke had to leave to catch the early bird special at Sizzler.

swankywanky: Greinke had to leave to catch the early bird special at Sizzler.


I didn't even know he was that old. I mean, I hadn't heard his name in a few minutes, but my memory of him being a dominant pitcher doesn't seem that long ago.

Also, this ump is pretty good with his strike zone. A couple that could go either way, but not a "close enough" strike-caller.

Turned that one off to watch this one, buddy told me a few minutes ago dodgers came back, wish I would've stayed on it.

Mookie ftw

No way that's a strike.

The Braves blew it.

I don't think they win another game.

This statement aged poorly very quickly.

Just turned the game on. I guess the stolen base is the make-up call for the bad strike determination.
 
2021-10-19 9:32:54 PM  
BS strike
 
2021-10-19 9:33:00 PM  
Between that call on JD Martinez, and the Walker Buehler pitch against Joc Pederson, they've gotta have robot umps ready to go next year.

Well that called third strike on JD goes against this.

soopey: This statement aged poorly very quickly.


Yes.

Last I checked the score it was 2-0 Dodgers.

2-0, tied 2-2. Braves tacked on the other three fairly quickly and it stayed loke that until the 8th (?)

151: I love JD. No way I believe that wasn't intentional.


He thought it was a ball. He thought the catcher didn't need to throw it because second base was awarded automatically to Verdugo.

The patience and strike zone intelligence of this team tells me he knew that was a ball. The ump called it a strike, but all these umps love to take their time on called strikes to wind up and make an emphatic call.

I'd love to see an ump who called strike three the same way he called ball two.

Braves had a 4-run 4th and tacked on another in the 5th, but a 3-run Bellinger bomb tied it in the 8th, then Mookie drove in the go-ahead double after

Wow that takes me back. In 1988 I worked in Boston, literally across the street from Fenway. Cask & Flagon was a frequent after-work watering hole.  They had a great jukebox.  We were in the bar watching the bloody sock game. Fun times.

Quick hook on Pivetta this inning hopefully.

He knew it was a ball until he heard the strike call, at which time he pretended to try to get out of the way. He knew exactly what he was doing and why. fark, I don't even blame him for it. Just pointing out what I saw.

It's been remodeled a few times since.

Also, if the Braves and Red Sox do happen to win the series, the Braves have homefield over the Sox because they're division winners, is that correct?

No. World Series is determined by record.

Earguy: In 1988


It would be slightly more than a decade after that when I started going down there for punk and hardcore shows at Axis and Avalon as a teenager. I'm glad I was able to enjoy the tail end of the Boston hardcore scene. Only got one concussion!

Oh good. I wasn't sure about that because I was like, "Wait, how are the Dodgers with their 100+ wins on the road in game 3." Then realized they were the wild card.

I'd go to the all ages shows at The Channel. And hell yes I just carbon dated myself.

Yeah. We've had.. discussions with some opinionated Dodgers fans about that.

You ever see Nowhere U.S.A.?

I think that was the name, but I'm not really into hardcore.
