2012 World Series Game 1 OMNICHATTER

The National Pastime’s pinnacle event begins. It was once said that it was foretold by being written in the stars, a million miles away… hang on, stars are a lot farther than a million miles away! Weird.

AL Champion Detroit Tigers (Verlander)
@
NL Champion San Francisco Giants (Zito)

8 PM (more or less), FOX.

Holy lord, whatever Pablo ate for breakfast needs to become a regular part of my diet.

I'm pretty sure he ate Melky Cabrera. Enjoy!

Well, the first time that the Babe did it, the Yankees still lost the World Series, if that's any consolation to Jungaleer fans.
   303. Roger McDowell spit on me! Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:00 PM (#4282331)
I can't ever remember balls carrying to that part of the park like they are tonight.

Pablo Sandoval's World Series OPS is sitting pretty at 5.000 right now.

Ruth had a shot at it in 1926 G4, but he walked in his final AB. He was on-deck in the 9th when the third out was made.

-- MWE

And Pence looks like crap again.
   308. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:01 PM (#4282337)
So he should be the first to even have a chance at the four homer game right?

No, Ruth had a chance when he did it in 1926. (Wild Bill Hallahan walked him in the 8th.)
   309. toratoratora Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:02 PM (#4282338)

From the looks of him, you may just be right.
Take that, Taco Bell!

I was gonna say. His typical breakfast is probably half of the average Denny's pantry.

   313. Textbook Editor Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:03 PM (#4282342)
I owe several cokes.

Pence flailing at balls down and away reminds me of watching Soriano do the same for the Yankees in the 2003 ALCS.
   314. Slivers of Maranville descends into chaos (SdeB) Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:03 PM (#4282343)

Pence looks like crap always.

Pablo Sandoval is on pace for 21.6 homers this World Series, which would be a record.

The starting pitchers in the other 3 HR games in the Series:
Bill Sherdel
Flint Rhem
Burt Hooton
Matt Harrison

There are some perfectly decent pitchers in there, but nobody exactly in Verlander's class.
   319. Gamingboy Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:06 PM (#4282348)
The whole Stand Up to Cancer promotion is probably the classiest thing MLB has done in years.
   320. cardsfanboy Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:06 PM (#4282350)
Babe Ruth.
Reggie Jackson.
Albert Pujols.
Pablo Sandoval.


And Adam Kennedy, George Brett, Bob Robertson and Adrian Beltre if you expand it to post season play. (Not nearly as impressive list)
   321. Eric J can SABER all he wants to Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:06 PM (#4282351)
So does that commercial bother anyone else given that moving your chips forward then pulling them back is not allowed in poker?

He does bet with one chip; I'm given to the impression that you only have to bet something if you push forward. But I know virtually nothing about poker.
   322. Bhaakon Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:08 PM (#4282352)

I assume he's on the Ron Swanson diet: all the bacon and eggs.

No, all the bacon and eggs.

Yeah, you only have to call or min-bet if all you do is move a single chip forward.

Ah no. Adam Kennedy, Bob Robertson and Beltre definitely don't impress like Ruth, Jackson and Pujols. Though that Brett fellow could play a bit.
   328. Depressoteric feels Royally blue these days Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:09 PM (#4282358)

Oh no -- quite good. Just from an unexpected source!

The whole Stand Up to Cancer promotion is probably the classiest thing MLB has done in years.
Um, did you miss the part where they teamed up with Taco Bell to get us a free Dorito Taco if a player steals a base?
   330. Davo's Favorite Tacos Are Moose Tacos Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:11 PM (#4282361)
The last two balls have both been very solidly hit. I hope someone's in the bullpen.
   331. Rafael Bellylard: Built like a Panda. Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:11 PM (#4282362)
I almost hope the Tigers score one here just to take the onus off pulling Zito with a shutout.
   332. Eric J can SABER all he wants to Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:12 PM (#4282364)
barry zito, latter day howard ehmke?

Excellent reference. I don't think Zito was sent out as an advance scout before the Series, though.

Ah no. Adam Kennedy, Bob Robertson and Beltre definitely don't impress like Ruth, Jackson and Pujols. Though that Brett fellow could play a bit.

Beltre is actually fairly likely to end up with more career WAR than Reggie, for what it's worth.

Adam Kennedy, on the other hand, is not.

They should combine the two, and get us a free taco whenever someone stands up to cancer.

for the record i did not see howard ehmke pitch

   337. Lassus Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:14 PM (#4282370)
Ah well.

And that Dorito Taco giveaway reminds me of Halloween III. I am getting nowhere near one of those.

   354. VoodooR Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:17 PM (#4282387)
Excellent reference. I don't think Zito was sent out as an advance scout before the Series, though.


And maybe more to the point, Zito wasn't a surprise selection for the Game 1 nod. It was known days ago. Nobody knew (except for Mack, I guess) that Emhke was going to start in 1929.
   355. Gamingboy Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:17 PM (#4282388)
Fine, it isn't awesome. At least, not unless it is the start of a 6-run inning or something.

Bochy took Zito out so he could take the call from Kate Upton.

Bing Crosby rocks hard.

Well, not hard. But the dude was a true rock-and-roller for his era, and his voice and styling were amazing, beautiful, and groundbreaking.

Four total Cy Youngs have been on the mound so far, and counting.

Obviously that total has been matched (in any postseason game with Greg Maddux after '95, for instance), but has any playoff game ever had three separate Cy winners pitch?
   369. Harveys Wallbangers Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:20 PM (#4282402)

Touche, Harveys. It was a good comparison (Emhke/Zito). I just always have to take the opportunity to show everyone I know something. You know how that goes around here.

Likewise. Also, it serves as a chance to point out (1) how baseball is different these days, and (2) just how utterly crazy the Howard Ehmke thing was.
   385. Shooty Survived the Shutdown of '14! Posted: October 24, 2012 at 10:25 PM (#4282419)

Tell me a better singer of the '30s than Bing.

He truly took the normality as it was, picked it up, and changed it to fit his model. He was to the '30s what Sinatra would be to the '40s, and Elvis would be to the '50s. He was a hugely important talent in the development of American popular music as we came to know it.

In the 1974 World Series, the five games featured three, two, three, two and three Cy Young winners. Fingers hadn't won his yet, though, so in terms of existing Cy Young winners, there were never more than two.

There were four Cy Young winners pitching in that series, Blue, Hunter, Fingers and Mike Marshall, plus another Hall of Fame pitcher in Don Sutton.

Sam Cooke.
Cooke was an all-time great, but I feel like the argument here about non-R&B singers. Because once we open those floodgates we need to start talking about everyone from Marvin Gaye to Daryl Hall to Sam Cooke etc.

Game five of 2001 NLCS had Randy, Glavine and Smoltz.

Cooke was an all-time great, but I feel like the argument here about non-R&B singers. Because once we open those floodgates we need to start talking about everyone from Marvin Gaye to Daryl Hall to Sam Cooke etc.

He was versatile. But I digest...back to baseball!

Yep I looked there before realizing that Schilling hadn't won. (and for the fun of it I looked at 82 world series to see if Vuckovich, Fingers and Sutter all pitched in the same game, but that never happened.)

Oooh, everyone say your Fox local News Promo!

Ours was Chris Cooley back with the redskins, DC speed trap cameras are scandalous, and some kind of guy who has filmed a notorious video of some kind

Found one with three existing Cy Young winners: Game Three of the 1983 Series featured Mike Flanagan, Steve Carlton and Jim Palmer (pitching in relief).

So, I was listening to the Sirius 1940s station recently. Lots of Bing Crosby. What I'm wondering about is this: what age group decided what was popular back then? Obviously in the 60s it was teens that were going crazy about the Beatles, and teens in the 90s listening to the Backstreet Boys or whatever, but the 40s music does not sound like the sound of teenagers.

Probably people in their 20s. Teenagers didn't have any money in the 1930s.
