When Trevor Story got off to that red-hot start last year, he kicked it off by hitting two homers off Zack Greinke in Arizona on Opening Day. For his career, he's hitting .333/.360/.875 off Greinke with four homers in 24 at bats. Bud Black has him hitting fifth tonight.

HOW WILL THE ROCKIES AND DIAMONDBACKS LOSE TODAY??!!
   3. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: October 04, 2017 at 06:10 PM (#5544593)
Who will get the honor of being swept by the Dodgers in the NLDS?
   4. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 04, 2017 at 07:13 PM (#5544621)
I'm not an expert if either of these teams, but I have questions about both lineups. Cargo 3rd? Marte 2nd?
   5. Tom Nawrocki Posted: October 04, 2017 at 07:20 PM (#5544623)
CarGo has been batting third against RHP through much of September, when he's been on fire: .377/.484/.766.
   6. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 07:32 PM (#5544626)
This must be the worst WC game ever ! Boring as hell.
Rockies vs. D-Backs... that's like Trump vs. Clinton.

I hope some Horror Clowns storm the field and get tackled !

And yes, GO my BELOVED yankees !

#### your Yankees, may they die in a river fire in Cleveland.
   8. bunyon Posted: October 04, 2017 at 07:37 PM (#5544630)
New rule for WC games: if game time is over three hours, both teams eliminated and first seed gets a bye.

Seems natural to bat Ketel One.

There. I got that out of my system.
   10. Phil Coorey. Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:08 PM (#5544639)
Jeff Mathis still plays?! Sheesh
   11. Bote Man Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:11 PM (#5544640)
If Jeff Mathis is Greinke's personal catcher, then I'd consider trading away Greinke.
   12. spycake Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:11 PM (#5544641)
Where's Marlins Man?
   13. Bote Man Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:11 PM (#5544642)
I have Ron Darling and Ernie Johnson(?) on the international TV stream, is that who's on the domestic US TBS broadcast?
   14. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:13 PM (#5544643)

Calm down, Mister Paddock !
   15. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:22 PM (#5544648)
I know that down 0:3 feeling.

I just hope the name Gray DOESNT go to #### now.

Fight back, Gray, get settled. And give us Yankee Heroes a Light in the Dark of Red SUCKS and ASStros evil times.
   16. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:27 PM (#5544650)
Do it for Blackmon , at least. The best Baseballer since Mike Pagliarulo

Damn !
   17. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:29 PM (#5544651)
Calm down, Mister Pollock !

Yes.
   19. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:32 PM (#5544653)
Bud Black ain't Joe Girardi. Yank him, if he sucks !
   20. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:34 PM (#5544655)
Ernie Johnson should never step off the "Inside the NBA" set. And Ron Darling should never do games without Gary Cohen.
   21. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:35 PM (#5544658)
Does Gray's cap say 'Tootblan' or 'Postseason', on the rim ?

FOX sports will find out !
   22. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:36 PM (#5544659)
Well, looks like another brisk, well-paced game that will showcase baseball at its finest in the postseason.
   23. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:38 PM (#5544660)

Haha. Shut the #### up, you Baseball Hater !

Go and suck Manny Machado's penis !
   24. Lance Reddick! Lance him! Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:38 PM (#5544661)
*cough*one-trickpony*cough*
   25. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:40 PM (#5544662)
Oh, you meant the longer commercial breaks... I take that Machado Dick-Sucking back.

Go Rockies !
   26. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:45 PM (#5544665)
#25, you need to up your dosage to control that serious case of Tourette's you have.
   27. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:46 PM (#5544666)
Greinke should lose this. I don't like him, and he is really not that good.
If he pitches a No-No , he should be traded to the Giants !
   28. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:47 PM (#5544667)
#25, you need to up your dosage to control that serious case of Tourette's you have.


Are you Jamie Lannister ?
   29. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:50 PM (#5544669)
Is Bud Black the new Matt Matheny ?
The always WRONG and TOO LATE and DUMB ?

Too late.

######' Idiot !
   30. PASTE, Now with Extra Pitch and Extra Stamina Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:54 PM (#5544671)
I don't usually advocate for this kind of thing, but even with the handy dandy ignore feature, at some point when my whole screen is filled with line after line of [ Ignored Comment ] it has to count as bannable spam.
   31. Bote Man Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:55 PM (#5544672)
Since this game is turning out to be a sh|tshow, I guess I'll work on this perl script some more and keep the D-backs' eventual victory on in the background.
   32. Nose army. Beef diaper? (CoB) Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:55 PM (#5544673)
#26 There's a simple solution for that ...

Black is bringing in Oberg?

With a 4.94 ERA?

At this point, in this game?
   33. Nose army. Beef diaper? (CoB) Posted: October 04, 2017 at 08:58 PM (#5544674)
#32 Well, shows what I know ...
   34. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:05 PM (#5544677)
I basically hate all the Dodgers' arseholes. SO, a walk is good. FU Greinke !

YES !!

NO !!!!
   35. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:12 PM (#5544678)
Really long commercial breaks... this sucks even more than the ALL-STAR GAME and HR DERBY !
   36. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:18 PM (#5544679)
It was about location ! *yeah, go stick one up your arse, scout and coach and manager !

Oh Daniel !
   37. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:19 PM (#5544680)
Not the Rockies night.
   38. The Yankee Clapper Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:19 PM (#5544681)
Yankees announced that Sonny Gray is starting Game 1 of the ALDS, Sabathia Game 2.
   39. puck Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:19 PM (#5544682)
Ouch. Done in by your ex-utility infielder.
   40. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:20 PM (#5544683)
Let's go Roarkeys !



   41. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:21 PM (#5544684)
So it looks like the Yankees rotation is gray, cc, Tanaka, then severino? Is that an overreaction to the WC game or is he hurt?
   42. Bote Man Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:22 PM (#5544685)
.

Classic burn.

   44. bunyon Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:25 PM (#5544687)
Diamond backs should consider pulling Greinke.
   45. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:27 PM (#5544688)
Greinke has the perfect ugly faced nerd jerk look... leave him in , and let him become the LOSER GREINKE !
   46. puck Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:35 PM (#5544690)
Change the channel back, it's 6-3!
   47. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:37 PM (#5544691)
Man he lost it quickly.
   48. Nose army. Beef diaper? (CoB) Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:37 PM (#5544692)
Well, this got interesting in a hurry ...
   49. PreservedFish Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:38 PM (#5544693)
Grienke strikes me as the type of guy that couldn't care less about what happens in October.
   50. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:40 PM (#5544694)
Only 50 comments tonight----273 last night!

EAST COAST BIAS!!!!
   51. LA Podcasting Hombre of Anaheim Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:42 PM (#5544695)
The Rockies don't really have much of a base on BTF. I do wanna say, I feel pretty smart about giving the DBacks all sorts of props before this season. DBacks-Dodgers should be epic.... if Arizona survives tonight.
   52. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:42 PM (#5544696)
Every time I hear 'Count on' I don't count on ! *word !
   53. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:44 PM (#5544697)
If the D Backs let Blackmon or Story kill them, they are dumber than HELL !
   54. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:45 PM (#5544699)
We are definitely back in Rodney epic blown save territory now.
   55. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:49 PM (#5544700)
Like I said, obviously marte should be hitting second.
   56. Nose army. Beef diaper? (CoB) Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:49 PM (#5544701)
Two triples ... that's impressive.
   57. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:51 PM (#5544702)
Ooo, Robbie Ray is warming up.
   58. Nose army. Beef diaper? (CoB) Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:53 PM (#5544703)
Wow ... HELL of a reaction play!
   59. Misirlou doesn't live in the restaurant Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:53 PM (#5544704)
I hate these D'bag unis. It looks like they have excessive sweaty back.
   60. LA Podcasting Hombre of Anaheim Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:53 PM (#5544705)
Oh, man. If he'd gone for home he would have made it. Safe baserunning and all, what with Arenado there, but still.
   61. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:53 PM (#5544706)
Let'S just pretend the Arenado never happened !
   62. Snowboy Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:54 PM (#5544707)
Arenado is a hell of a hitter...he also deserves his Gold Gloves. Heck of a play.
   63. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:54 PM (#5544708)
I hate these D'bag unis. It looks like they have excessive sweaty back.

To think, these are easily the best of their 57 uniform combos too.

Charles Moynihan, ESPN Producer

Ervin Santana. Luis Severino. Jon Gray. Zack Greinke. Your A.L. and N.L. Wild Card starting pitchers. The quartet lasted a grand total of 7 innings while allowing a combined 15 earned runs. Playoff baseball.

Will we ever see another Quality Start?
   65. Bote Man Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:57 PM (#5544710)
Speedy runner at 3B, you've GOT to bury the pitch in the dirt to make your catcher scramble for it. It is written.
   66. Misirlou doesn't live in the restaurant Posted: October 04, 2017 at 09:58 PM (#5544712)
It is written.


It is KNOWN!

Chase Headley will start GAME 1 of the Yankees vs. the Cubs in the 2017 World Series !

It has been Judged !
   68. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 04, 2017 at 10:04 PM (#5544714)
CarGo is the worst aggro Baseball player of all-time.
Just total retardedness and imbicility ! (Never mind the spelling)
What a total and utter ####### !

DIP shiite !
   69. Bourbon Samurai, what price fettucine? Posted: October 04, 2017 at 10:11 PM (#5544717)

   70. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 04, 2017 at 10:14 PM (#5544718)
It took you 2 hours to put your kids to bed? How many kids?
   71. Dr. Vaux Posted: October 04, 2017 at 10:15 PM (#5544719)
Well, the ball might be super juiced for the "postseason," but from what I saw, Grienke's fourth inning pitches were straight-up meatballs.
   72. Misirlou doesn't live in the restaurant Posted: October 04, 2017 at 10:15 PM (#5544720)
You apparently don't have kids.
   73. Bote Man Posted: October 04, 2017 at 10:17 PM (#5544721)
Dad would just give us a beer and we'd be out for the night. You're not doing it right.
   74. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 04, 2017 at 10:20 PM (#5544722)
You apparently don't have kids.

I was ####### superdad tonight. Wife was at a PTA meeting, both kids (6&3) were bathed, drank a cup of milk, and down within 30 minutes.

Maybe an hour and 10 minutes or so, but bath, getting dressed, stories, can take that long. I was fairly leisurely tonight because I don't have any conference calls, we can knock it out in half an hour if we need to.
   78. Dale Sams Posted: October 04, 2017 at 10:29 PM (#5544727)
Anyone else having a nightmare time with MLB.Com? Audio links not working Video links not working, all going to media error signs?

This one or this one?
   81. Bote Man Posted: October 04, 2017 at 10:46 PM (#5544736)
Prototypical Ian Desmond, swinging at a pitch that the catcher had to come up out of his crouch to snag.
   82. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 04, 2017 at 10:49 PM (#5544740)
Fernando Rodney blown save territory alert at full blast.
   83. Bote Man Posted: October 04, 2017 at 10:50 PM (#5544742)
This is complete and utter caca: the Indians have added seats *IN THE AISLE* thereby blocking the concrete steps up to the concourse. If you need to take a bathroom break, you'd better give yourself 15 minute lead time to squeeze across all 20-some seats to the other aisle, assuming they didn't do this to EVERY aisle.
   84. Tom Nawrocki Posted: October 04, 2017 at 10:53 PM (#5544743)
It's amazing that the Rockies are still in this while getting virtually nothing from the top of the order.

This is complete and utter caca: the Indians have added seats *IN THE AISLE* thereby blocking the concrete steps up to the concourse.

No Fire Code in Cleveland? You'd think they be more concerned about such things in a city where the river burns. Might not be ADA compliant, either.
   86. Tom Nawrocki Posted: October 04, 2017 at 10:59 PM (#5544746)
I hate Neshek against a lefty.
   87. Meatwad Posted: October 04, 2017 at 11:00 PM (#5544747)
Yc a link for that info?
   88. Tom Nawrocki Posted: October 04, 2017 at 11:00 PM (#5544748)
I love him against Jeff Mathis, though.

I have not been a fan of the way Cleveland handle the stadium since they were selling out routinely. I have a friend who is in a wheelchair, and visits Cleveland a couple of times a year, and would request handicap seats and would be told they were sold out, and then he would see that they would then sell them on day of game for an inflated price. (I know he talked to lawyers about a suit on it, not sure how far it ever got)

Not a franchise that I respect their business actions.
   90. Tom Nawrocki Posted: October 04, 2017 at 11:02 PM (#5544751)
I love him against Archie Bradley, too.
   91. Bote Man Posted: October 04, 2017 at 11:02 PM (#5544752)
Whaddaya expect from Rachel Phelps???
   92. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 04, 2017 at 11:04 PM (#5544753)
Wow.
   93. Tom Nawrocki Posted: October 04, 2017 at 11:04 PM (#5544754)
I'm guessing that's the first two-run triple by a relief pitcher in a wild card game.
   94. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: October 04, 2017 at 11:04 PM (#5544755)
I love him against Archie Bradley, too.

You, sir, are incorrect.
   95. Bote Man Posted: October 04, 2017 at 11:05 PM (#5544756)
I love him against Archie Bradley, too.

Bud Black doesn't.

Now.
   96. Snowboy Posted: October 04, 2017 at 11:05 PM (#5544757)
Who will look better against Neshek? Jeff Mathis or Archie Bradley? We'll see...
   97. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: October 04, 2017 at 11:06 PM (#5544758)
Bradley just made it a lot harder for Rodney to blow this one
   98. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: October 04, 2017 at 11:08 PM (#5544762)
Wait...have we addressed the question of why the hell the pitcher was batting for AZ with runners on base and a one-run lead to begin with?? Was he up there to bunt and didn't get it down? Sorry, I've been working and not really paying attention, obviously.
   99. The Ghost of Sox Fans Past Posted: October 04, 2017 at 11:09 PM (#5544763)
Bradley just made it a lot harder for Rodney to blow this one

Don't sell Fernando short.
   100. Bote Man Posted: October 04, 2017 at 11:09 PM (#5544764)
Jeff Passan @JeffPassan
Archie Bradley is the first relief pitcher in baseball history to triple in a postseason game.

Can we get CFB to verify this?
