   1901. Chip Posted: October 18, 2018 at 12:54 AM (#5769920)
Yeah sure, pinch hit Leon, why not?
   1902. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 12:55 AM (#5769921)
THAT'S LITERALLY THE BEST YOU COULD HAVE HOPED FOR WITH LEON. THE ABSOLUTE BEST.
   1903. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 12:55 AM (#5769922)
Sac Fly! The paradigm of a 2018 Leon AB.

No worries, though, because JBJ is going to park it.
   1904. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 12:57 AM (#5769924)
MORE RUNS

SAVE US MOOKIE
   1905. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: October 18, 2018 at 12:57 AM (#5769925)
JBJ is going to park it.
Or vice versa.
   1906. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 12:57 AM (#5769926)
No one has any control in this series!

How dare you hit JBJ before he can mash a 3 run homer?!
   1907. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 12:58 AM (#5769927)
Yeah sure, pinch hit Leon, why not?


In fairness... Leon came in for Moreland after Moreland PH for Vasquez.
   1908. puck Posted: October 18, 2018 at 12:58 AM (#5769929)
That's a catch!
   1909. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: October 18, 2018 at 12:58 AM (#5769930)
What. A. Play.
   1910. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 12:58 AM (#5769931)
Wow, Reddick. That's a fantastic play.
   1911. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: October 18, 2018 at 12:58 AM (#5769932)
Wow. Hell of a catch by Crimsonpenis.
   1912. Chip Posted: October 18, 2018 at 12:58 AM (#5769933)
####.

Great play.
   1913. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 12:58 AM (#5769934)
####
   1914. puck Posted: October 18, 2018 at 12:59 AM (#5769935)
Now what? Kimbrel or Price?
   1915. Jay Seaver Posted: October 18, 2018 at 12:59 AM (#5769936)
Dang. I just got home at midnight and I've still gotten to see a good chunk of a great, crazy game.
   1916. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:00 AM (#5769937)
TE Jr. is like never gonna wake up for school tomorrow; this is the latest I've ever let him stay up to watch a game.
   1917. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:00 AM (#5769938)
Oh god Kimbrel.
   1918. The Piehole of David Wells Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:00 AM (#5769939)
As I get older, I think I prefer the finesse pitchers to these guys who throw 100 and hit the batter on 0-2.
   1919. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:00 AM (#5769940)
Here we go.
   1920. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:01 AM (#5769941)
TE: It's 1am, I'd gift him an off day. Especially if the Sox blow it.
   1921. Chip Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:02 AM (#5769942)
Huge out.
   1922. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:02 AM (#5769943)
Wow. Bailed out Kimbrel.
   1923. Jay Seaver Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:02 AM (#5769944)
If this goes to extra innings it'll probably kill people.
   1924. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:02 AM (#5769945)
THANK YOU YOURIEL
   1925. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:02 AM (#5769946)
Kimbrel out for another inning...that is seriously pushing the envelope...but there's 1 out!
   1926. puck Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:02 AM (#5769947)
Basket catch, is that easier than putting your glove up?
   1927. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:03 AM (#5769948)
TE: It's 1am, I'd gift him an off day. Especially if the Sox blow it.


He's got a test, a XC race, and soccer practice...
   1928. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:03 AM (#5769949)
As long as Springer doesn't set foot in the box this inning, then I'm confident. Well and our new overlord, Tony Kemp scares me also!
   1929. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:03 AM (#5769950)
THROW SOME ####### STRIKES, YOU WEIRDO.
   1930. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:04 AM (#5769951)
Kimbrel, I hate you.
   1931. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:05 AM (#5769952)
F**************ck. Throw strikes!
   1932. The Piehole of David Wells Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:05 AM (#5769953)
"Kimbrel just cannot lock it down." Forever.
   1933. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:05 AM (#5769954)
This is like waiting to get hit by a bus.
   1934. The Piehole of David Wells Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:05 AM (#5769955)
"Kimbrel has been flirting with disaster this entire postseason."
   1935. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:05 AM (#5769956)
This has to be Kimbrel's last batter, right?
   1936. The Ghost of Sox Fans Past Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:05 AM (#5769957)
Try a fastball.
   1937. Infinite Yost (Voxter) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:06 AM (#5769958)
Every time Kimbrel does that weird eagle pose I want to slap him.
   1938. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:06 AM (#5769959)
He's got a test, a XC race, and soccer practice...


Yeesh. Maybe just take the morning then. I hope his test isn't first period, nothing you can do about the race, but aren't you his danged soccer coach? You could go Mourinho on him and make him run suicides.

THROW A ####### STRIKE, #######.
   1939. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:06 AM (#5769960)
This is EXACTLY what watching Mitch Williams in 1993's postseason was like.
   1940. The Piehole of David Wells Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:07 AM (#5769963)
Altuve is gnawing on bone.
   1941. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:07 AM (#5769964)
BRING IN PRICE
   1942. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:08 AM (#5769965)
GRADY LITTLE ALERT
   1943. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:08 AM (#5769966)
OK, I'm getting another ####### beer. Thank ####### god tomorrow isn't a day when I'm in court.
   1944. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:08 AM (#5769967)
GRADY LITTLE HAS POSSESSED ALEX CORA
   1945. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:08 AM (#5769968)
I can't believe this. Kimbrel has money on Houston, right?

Just throw strikes, at least make them beat you like the limp d*ck noodle that you are....
   1946. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:08 AM (#5769969)
FREE DAVID PRICE!
   1947. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:09 AM (#5769970)
GRADY LITTLE RED ALERT
   1948. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:09 AM (#5769971)
Thank you McCann for the 1 pitch out.
   1949. The Piehole of David Wells Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:10 AM (#5769972)
Brian McCann trying to make the contract worth it with one at bat.
   1950. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:10 AM (#5769973)
See, this is crazy.

   1951. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:10 AM (#5769974)
Price would hold Correa!
   1952. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:10 AM (#5769975)
Today I've wanted to have Joe Kelly come into a game and have David Price come in with runners at the corners in the ninth. What the hell.
   1953. puck Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:10 AM (#5769976)
Is this guy fast?
   1954. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:10 AM (#5769977)
THIS IS CRAZY!
   1955. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:10 AM (#5769978)
NO WORRIES, WE'LL JUST LOAD THE BASES.
   1956. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:11 AM (#5769979)
How in the living hell did Correa not advance on that?
   1957. Infinite Yost (Voxter) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:11 AM (#5769980)
Tony . . . Kemp?
   1958. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:11 AM (#5769981)
WATCH HE'S GONNA WALK KEMP
   1959. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:11 AM (#5769982)
Kemp should not swing
   1960. Pat Rapper's Delight (as quoted on MLB Network) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:12 AM (#5769983)
"Hey Google, what the hell is going on out there?"
   1961. The Piehole of David Wells Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:12 AM (#5769984)
Kimbrel is either hurt or broken.
   1962. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:12 AM (#5769985)
OH #### YOU KIMBREL

AND #### YOU CORA
   1963. Ray (CTL) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:12 AM (#5769986)
Kimbrel... what an adventure he's been.
   1964. Jay Seaver Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:12 AM (#5769987)
Just. Throw. A. Freakin. Strike!
   1965. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:12 AM (#5769988)
Its Tony effing Kemp, just strike this punk out.
   1966. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:12 AM (#5769989)
What's Koji Uehara up to these days?
   1967. The Piehole of David Wells Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:12 AM (#5769990)
Ron Darling nailing it.
   1968. Chip Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:12 AM (#5769991)
Makes a good pitch, but won’t be able to repeat it.
   1969. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:12 AM (#5769992)
DYING
   1970. Chip Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:13 AM (#5769993)
Like I said.
   1971. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:13 AM (#5769994)
Well, no one can say this ain't exciting.
   1972. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:13 AM (#5769995)
I told you he'd do that. And I know we don't believe in being due here, but if anyone was ever due, it'd be Bregman.
   1973. Textbook Editor Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:13 AM (#5769996)
GRADY LITTLE. HOLY #### HE'S GOING FULL GRADY LITTLE
   1974. puck Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:13 AM (#5769997)
If he doesn't hit Bregman.
   1975. Jay Seaver Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5769998)
Geez, I hope Price hasn't warmed up enough tonight to mess with tomorrow, since it's clear Cora is going to live or die with Kimbrel here.
   1976. The Piehole of David Wells Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5769999)
Complete fail by Cora here.
   1977. Pat Rapper's Delight (as quoted on MLB Network) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770000)
OH MY GOD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
   1978. Chip Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770001)
HOLY ####.
   1979. Jay Seaver Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770002)
THANK YOU BENNY!!!!
   1980. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770003)
This is just brutal.
   1981. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770004)
WOWOWOWOWOWW
   1982. SoSH U at work Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770005)
Holy crap
   1983. The Ghost of Sox Fans Past Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770006)
OMG
   1984. Infinite Yost (Voxter) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770007)
Tony . . . Kemp?!

How on earth do you walk that dude with Alex Bregman on deck?
   1985. The Piehole of David Wells Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770008)
Holy ####### ####.
   1986. Fancy Crazy Town Banana Pants Handle Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770009)
EXHALE
   1987. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770010)
holy sh*t, it's over.
   1988. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770011)
Lame
   1989. The Anthony Kennedy of BBTF (Scott) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770012)
BENINTENDO!

UP 3-1!

NEVER LET PORCELLO OR KIMBREL PITCH IN A CLUTCH SITUATION AGAIN!
   1990. SteveF Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770013)
Cora has a horseshoe up his ass.
   1991. Benji Gil Gamesh VII - The Opt-Out Awakens Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770014)
OH.
MY.
#######.
GOD.
   1992. puck Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770015)
INcredible catch.
   1993. Chip Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770016)
It’s a loss if he doesn’t get that.
   1994. The Piehole of David Wells Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:14 AM (#5770017)
No review?
   1995. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:15 AM (#5770018)
Great call too.
   1996. Red Voodooin Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:15 AM (#5770019)
Wow! What a fantastic end. I thought the game was tied.
   1997. Chip Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:15 AM (#5770020)
But of course, if he plays it safe, it means at worst a tie and Springer wins it.
   1998. Ray (CTL) Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:15 AM (#5770021)
Jesus. I doubt most LFs try for that.
   1999. dave h Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:15 AM (#5770022)
3 centerfielders
   2000. A Dying Soul Posted: October 18, 2018 at 01:16 AM (#5770023)
HOLY HELL HOW DID THEY WIN??? Krimbrel got so lucky. He was just awful. What an amazing game. I don't know what Cora was thinking. Why not bring in Price??
