Nats finally figured out how to hit.
Nats showing some power!
Tribe better get it done this time!
Last year we were hurt a bit and bullpen wasn't like this year's.
We've got all the pieces in place, and the Cubbies broke their curse last year (if Indians had to lose the series to any team I'm glad it was them).
It was looking grim for the Nats but it's going to be best two out of three now. Good for Harper to get that big ding but for me Zim getting his homer was even better. He's been with the Nats when they would lose 100 games and made a successful move to first when his shoulder couldn't take the throws from third any longer. Plus he's from VB too so there's the local angle too
Red Sox look like they are going through their whole pitching staff today trying to win one game anyway.
All hands on deck!
They've come to life! Finally decided to play.
I was a little surprised (just a little bit, not very much) by some (not all!) Yankees fans responses to what turned out to be a bad call in game 2. Anyone who knows anything at all about baseball knows how quirky and subject to luck (be it good luck or bad luck) the game of baseball is. If you've ever played the game your self, you are even more aware of the quirks and the "luck" factor. You may have even experienced a bit of humiliation or elation yourself depending on how your luck or the quirks played out in any given game. Maybe you might have even needed a reminder that in spite of skill and athletic ability etc. etc., it is after all, just a game.
Umpires on the field have a split second to observe any given play, and they only see it one time - in real time. Always a quirky situation.
Managers in the dugout are constantly receiving and processing information; the greatest part of that info has always been real-time, and now with the advent of challenges based on slow-motion replay, we have added quirks. Especially considering that the manager depends on a "replay specialist" for the information that he bases his judgement call on.
I realize that Joe Girardi is not Joe Torre, and he isn't Terry Francona either. But, the Yankees fans seemed to like him pretty well when the team wins.
I suppose there is always the very real possibility that I don't understand the average Yankees fan. After all, I was born in Cleveland Ohio, a city that I watched make the transition from "the best location in the nation" to "the mistake on the lake". Yeah, I'll admit I left Cleveland as soon as I could, when I was 17, but I'm like a bad penny and I turn back up every now and then. But there is one characteristic thing I've noticed about Cleveland people - they don't have a sense of entitlement or the expectation that their every desire is going to be met. They roll with the punches that they can't duck, and they take their luck where they find it. They are scrappy mofo's who don't ever feel like they are out of the game. Maybe a little of that has rubbed off on the Indians?
A lot of folks here in Houston knew better than to think the Astros would be able to sweep Boston. Series is now 2-1 after three lopsided games. Game four tomorrow with another terrible start time.
Not sure why the Sox/Stros keep getting these early afternoon games.
Because they're not the Yankees!
Game is 1pm today but will be played in showery weather. There is some talk about postponing until tomorrow
due to the weather. Will see how it all shakes out...
I have to give credit where it is do, I watched a bit of the Indians/Yankees game last night, while I had the Texans/Chiefs game on. That baseball game was an instant classic.
You are right though, the Yankees tend to get the primetime games.
Cubs/Nats is at 3pm CST on TBS. I'm happy that I don't have to stay up late - 5am comes very early during the playoffs.
Heard they were going with an expanded umpiring crew at Fenway. Sounds like they have about 37,000 making the calls today.
Hoping the Tribe goes all the way...yeah, I’m a Chicagoan. But I am a White Sox fan and the Cubs got theirs last year. I was happy for the Cubs and their fans, but it’s Cleveland’s turn.
Congrats to the Houston Astro fans.
Today's game wore me out!
Am I the only person that thinks that the chanting Yankees fans are annoying?
Man. Cubs squeak one out against Scherzer. Four errors yikes.
Nats stole game 2, Cubs turn around and steal game 3. Glad to see the Cubs bounce back, the 8th inning of game 2 had that all too familiar feel of 108 years...
