No Tom, that should have been told before.

Bad bunt - a trend?
   103. puck Posted: October 22, 2019 at 09:38 PM (#5893160)
So they are mostly pitching Alvarez away? Interesting after seeing the Rays and Yankees were busting him up and in.

Maldonado is NOT a good bunter

Great hitters hit the other way.

Maldonado is NOT a good bunter



He laid down a damn good one the other night for a hit.
   108. bunyon Posted: October 22, 2019 at 09:47 PM (#5893166)
So “not reviewable “ blown calls break even. And rightly so. Both calls were technical errors but really ticky tack.

So, Max. That is some hard work action

Did the Nats have someone up in the pen?
   111. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: October 22, 2019 at 09:58 PM (#5893170)
There are a lot of empty seats behind home plate? What's up with that?
   112. Misirlou gave her his Vincent to ride Posted: October 22, 2019 at 10:00 PM (#5893171)
Not too many people want to cough up $15,000 to see a baseball game?
   113. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: October 22, 2019 at 10:04 PM (#5893172)
Cole looking quite average and hittable....
   114. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: October 22, 2019 at 10:05 PM (#5893173)
This is the worst game Cole's pitched since .... July? June?
   115. puck Posted: October 22, 2019 at 10:09 PM (#5893175)
Wow, interesting game! Soto is big time!
   116. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: October 22, 2019 at 10:10 PM (#5893176)
That is just super hitting by Soto
   117. Esoteric Posted: October 22, 2019 at 10:10 PM (#5893177)
There's extra space on Mount Rushmore. Let's give it to Juan Soto.
   118. Baldrick Posted: October 22, 2019 at 10:11 PM (#5893178)
Cole looking quite average and hittable....

I wouldn't go that far. He's made plenty of guys look foolish in addition to giving up some solid hits. I expect we'll probably get a game with 30 strikeouts and one run, and that will be okay, but I'm glad the first game didn't end up that way.
   119. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: October 22, 2019 at 10:12 PM (#5893179)
Nice play by Correa to save another possible run.
   120. Hey - you and Tommy Lasorda...I hate Tommy Lasorda Posted: October 22, 2019 at 10:12 PM (#5893180)
As good as Soto has looked tonight, he looked lost against the Cards.
   121. Jeremy Renner App is Dead and I killed it Posted: October 22, 2019 at 10:15 PM (#5893181)
Craig Counsell thinks this game management is really stupid
   122. The Yankee Clapper Posted: October 22, 2019 at 10:15 PM (#5893182)
Just a reminder, the only players with as much of a presence as Juan Soto in significant categories on the MLB Age-20 Leaderboard are Inner Circle Hall of Famers.

What a pickup by Zimmerman

Why does Gurriel constantly have the elephant ear?
   126. Srul Itza Posted: October 22, 2019 at 10:23 PM (#5893186)
Scherzer at 112 pitches.

In the 5th

Time for the Nats Bullpen to step up.
   127. snapper (history's 42nd greatest monster) Posted: October 22, 2019 at 10:30 PM (#5893188)
Nationals say "Bullpen? We ain't got no bullpen. We don't need no bullpen. I don't got to show you no stinking bullpen!"
   128. puck Posted: October 22, 2019 at 10:33 PM (#5893190)
Is this basically Corbin's bullpen day, and he'll just be in for a inning or two?

Who knows how the Nats are going to play this?

Is there any evidence throwing 40 pitches on your throw day is bad for your performance? Pitchers have done crazy things in the World Series.

I don't think so, it seems pretty common in the playoffs. So I assumed that's what they're doing instead of going with Scherzer, Strasburg, Sanchez and a bullpen day.

Probably just 1 inning, unless there is a left-handed hitter leading off the next inning, He’s pitched 1 and a third in that scenario this postseason. The Nationals would strongly prefer that Tanner Rainey only face right-handers.
   132. puck Posted: October 22, 2019 at 10:55 PM (#5893197)
Springer.
   133. Baldrick Posted: October 22, 2019 at 10:56 PM (#5893198)
First batter faced by a reliever is a 700 foot home run.

PF, I understand this. I have a personal hierarchy that prevents me from rooting for the AL against the NL, which is why I'm irritated the Cards lost


- i'm with him

cole looks terrible - last time he looked this bad was like 5 months ago

and i'm 39 with kidz too. no idea how i am suddenly this old

We have to at least assume you know how the kidz got there, so there is that.

   137. JJ1986 Posted: October 22, 2019 at 11:10 PM (#5893202)
I think I'd have Hudson and Doolittle platoon the rest of the game. Especially since after this year teams won't ever get to do that again.
   138. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: October 22, 2019 at 11:11 PM (#5893203)
Hudson does the job. Fire put out.

David Schoenfield, ESPN Senior Writer

Youngest to hit a World Series home run: Andruw Jones, 19 years, 180 days; Miguel Cabrera, 20 years, 187 days; Mickey Mantle, 20 years, 352 days; Juan Soto, 20 years, 362 days.
Good company.

- well, we stayed home from work on 9/11/2001 because it seemed like a fun thing to do at the time and we, uh, um, didn't turn on phones until like late4 afternoon and by that time, well, uh, things happened in tejas

and we took in another 2, so i Do remember that

but it sure seems like yesterday i was blogging and taking mah 2 year olds to the ballpark bout every game and now that seems like yesterday and a million years ago

In his first career World Series game: Juan Soto is 3-for-4 with three RBI. He’s a triple shy of the cycle.

astros might could have to rethink their policy of never IBB when soto comes up

I have to admit that I do love how BBC pretends not to still root for the Astros because of the league-switch when, c'mon, obviously she does.

EDIT: Let me be clear that I am being 100% sincere here.

no pretense, esoteric

the divorce was, in fact, final. i do not have makeup sex with the ex. i will confess to rooting for altuve, but he was pre-divorce

i root for all NL teams except c*bs over any AL team except y*nkees and r*dsx

WARNING: BYPASS IF GAME ITSELF IS PARAMOUNT; JUST A TV-RELATED RAMBLE

after having access to every single postseason game thanks to my Mesozoic Era-cable TV plan, I got bounced off Fox in the 4th inning at 2-2.

same problem yesterday, but that's just kept me from watching a bad Giants-Cardinals game - so I watched Red Zone instead. screen would freeze for a few seconds, then dive herky-jerky forward - and then worse. Only Channel 4 (NBC) and Channel 5 (Fox), as far as I could tell.

but geesh this is the World Series. after 40 minutes on the phone with an inept tech (usually Charles Dolan's Cablevision people are excellent, no kidding), we go from crappy service on two channels to zero service on four channels - adding 2 (CBS) and 7 (ABC) to the mix.

I surmised that the exact missing channels being over-the-air should be a nice clue (which reminds me, my 'Green and Peacock starting that NYY-HOU game Clue reference' seemed to fall on deaf ears). but no light bulb clicking on the other end of the phone. 20 minutes with another tech, same standstill.

finally called back after the company website's FAQ got "no results found" for "supervisor" "customer service" and "complaint."

am still reaping the benefits from, back in the day, bouncing from one girlfriend who was the "Snuggle the Fabric Softener Bear" phone rep to "The Ragu Lady." learned a lot about how to reap the rewards of combining very polite and very relentless.

third guy offers me 3 months of Showtime free. strikes me as kind of useless, but I chalk it up as a W anyway. then when I noted the oddity of their tech arriving Thursday (after Game 2) to fix a problem tht is liable to be of their making - but they may charge me 80 bucks anyway - guy says he's made a note that if that somehow happens, just call back and they'll refund it immediately. plus I won't be charged for 4 days without getting my full complement of channels, he says - but that's not a big number.

it's interesting to think about a walk of a mile in these rep's shoes - how many nasty people there are out there. so expressing appreciation for their fine efforts and their patience goes a long way, it turns out.

we now resume your originally-scheduled programming, and Go Nats!


   148. puck Posted: October 22, 2019 at 11:32 PM (#5893214)
Springer's unbelievable in the post season.

Edit: or in the World Series anyway.

Tough chance, probably should've been caught. It hit the glove...

I applaud the Nats for doing what many have been clamoring for teams to do for year: Use your best reliever in the most critical situation and not robotically wait to bring him into the 9th with a small lead which might not happen if you use a lesser reliever in said critical situation.

DraftKings offering me +170 on Nationals tonight and +192 - almost 2 to 1 against - for the Series.

so I can bet $100 tonight and if Nats win I have $270 (I keep my $100 and win $170).
or $100 for Series and if Nats win I have $292 (I keep my $100 and win $192).

.............

UPDATE: risked nowhere near that cash - but a nice start. a real pro would now have lots of angles in playing that 'longshot Nats win Series payout' throughout.

Having Strasburg start helps the Nationals, too, although the bullpen may be a bit tuckered. Not sure they’ll use Corbin again, or Anibal Sanchez. Might need 7 innings from Stras.

Since it'ts baseball, wasn't that really the most likely outcome?

By the way, the D.C. sports stations--both of them--have actually been covering baseball this October. They even did a little bit over the summer. The [Washington football team] situation has everybody looking for something else to talk about.

If the Hawks can win the Series, that'll make five Japan Series championships in the last six seasons for Fukuoka SoftBank. By any definition, that's a dynasty.
   177. PreservedFish Posted: October 23, 2019 at 12:58 AM (#5893248)
So I just looked up the recent Japan Series game and two things jumped out at me.

First, the profoundly non-Japanese names that starred in this game:

Alfredo Despaigne drove in three runs, Yurisbel Gracial homered and Rick van den Hurk did his job on the mound as the Hawks moved within one win of a three-peat


And then...

Nineteen-year-old pitcher Shosei Togo, making the fourth start of his career, was charged with the loss...


What? The 4th start of his career was the 3rd game of the Japan Series? What's the story there?
   178. The Yankee Clapper Posted: October 23, 2019 at 01:20 AM (#5893250)
Tough chance, probably should've been caught. It hit the glove..
That would have been quite a catch by Adam Eaton. However, Springer thinking it was a HR & not making it to 3rd base with 1 out on the play may be of greater significance. Might have tied the game.
   179. Khrushin it bro Posted: October 23, 2019 at 01:26 AM (#5893252)
Springer blew it prancing all the way to 1st.

That must have been a typo or mistranslation. Togo didn't actually start - he relieved in a 2-2 tie in the fourth inning after the Giants pitcher was removed for a pinch hitter. It was the fourth game of his NPB career. He went 1-0, 2.08 in two games for the Giants in the regular season, and then started one game against Hanshin in the previous round, and lasted three innings in that one. He was a sixth round draft pick, and went 4-1, 3.00 in 11 games for the Giants minor league team this year.

Unfortunately, aside from that - I don't know anything about him. Tonight's the first time I've heard of him. But yes, that's a heck of a situation to put a rookie in his fourth game in to...
   182. bunyon Posted: October 23, 2019 at 06:17 AM (#5893265)
I recorded the game which was good because I fell asleep in the 7th. Got up and watched the end. I came precisely to gripe about Springer. And Tucker. Springer makes third easy if he’s running hard. Except he probably wouldn’t have because he’d have had to slow up because Tucker was perched on the base. Terrible base running all around. If things play out exactly as it did (hard to say) he scores on Altuve’s fly ball.
   183. TomH Posted: October 23, 2019 at 07:02 AM (#5893267)

Springer blew it prancing all the way to 1st.


I was surprised that they didn't make a big deal out of this on the broadcast last night. As soon as the ball came off the bat and Springer started dancing I began to think about what would happen if the ball didn't go out.
   185. bunyon Posted: October 23, 2019 at 08:39 AM (#5893278)
Fish, no kidding. They jump all over that usually. And it was a textbook example of what bad can happen. It's not hard to imagine that 90 feet is important. But "double" is assumed today. If you get to second, the view is that you didn't cost yourself anything. With Houston's weird wall, there should be more triples and those guys should bust it out of the box.

I'm really annoyed this morning.
   186. Rennie's Tenet Posted: October 23, 2019 at 08:46 AM (#5893282)

I just find it incomprehensible. George Springer certainly works harder on his body and his craft than I have ever worked on anything in my entire life. But I'm smart enough to hustle at the right times. Why would he jeopardize that hard work by peacocking in such an exquisitely important moment? That was no moonshot, it was a drifty fly ball to the deep opposite field, and everyone has observed that drifty fly balls ain't drifting the same way in October that they did all year long.

Thinking about Acuna again - I don't understand how the acute embarrassment the first time he made this mistake wouldn't permanently alter his behavior. But I guess he was not actually embarrassed. That type of inane confidence is totally unnatural to me. To be sure, it's probably an extremely productive mindset most of the time.

Do you think the teammates actually care? Are they let down? Or do they just think, "yeah, that can happen to anyone"?

I remarked that the only way the Nationals would get to Cole was if his fielders let him down with errors or just poor judgment. I had not noticed Springer doing the Acuña Watch Party thing at the time, but I never thought Astros hitters would contribute to their loss. And Bregman was neutralized.

Everybody talks about the Nationals' starting rotation, but their hitting lineup is not too shabby itself. I think Juan Soto has announced his presence in the Bigs, for those who were somehow unaware up to now. And it's a passage out of a story book that Ryan Zimmerman smacked the first home run in the World Series for the Nats after playing through the dark ages of 2007-2011 and the near-miss playoff years after then. He has been a living archive of pretty much everything this team has gone through so this payoff (so far) has got to be sweet for him.

Thanks for all the well wishes. I hesitate to say that the Nats are playing with house money, but I have been remarkably calm once the Nats dispatched the 106-win Dodgers because they just seem to have "it" (somebody here made a similar remark during the NLCS). This is magical.

Wow, what a ride. The first inning looked about like the worst case scenario, but, at least so far, the baseball gods are still favoring the Nats. What a close game.

What? The 4th start of his career was the 3rd game of the Japan Series? What's the story there?


Shosei Togo is Japanese for Marty Bystrom.

Bystrom at least had a terrific very short season before his playoffs turn. 36 innings.

Francisco Rodriguez had 5 unhittable innings.

Matt Moore had 9 dominant innings, and was one of the best pitching prospects in baseball, when he started Game 1 of the playoffs.

There must be a story behind Togo.

Semi-related, I live in rural Maine, the only "ethnic" food anywhere nearby is generally boring or actually vile. The Thai restaurants are actually Chinese restaurants with Pad Thai on the menu. The Chinese restaurants serve that nasty hyper-Americanized semi-polynesian stuff that was popular in the 50s. And yet not too far away a man from Togo has opened a Togolese restaurant! Haven't visited yet.

The Doosan Bears rallied with three in the 9th to defeat the Kiwoom Heroes, 6-5. Doosan leads the Korean Series, 2-0.

and I'm too old to be yanking cables out of walls and don't have rabbit ears handy.


Howie, if the signal is strong enough in your area, you might be able to stick the end of a paper clip into the coax jack of your TV and do a channel scan. A metal clothes hanger might work too.

Another option is Locast, a service that re-streams OTA signals in some markets:

Let us know if you still have this trouble tonight.

Agreed - I'd be interested in finding out myself. I'll update if I can find out any more.

Just really enjoyed the game last night. Please keep doing games like this nats/astros, thanks.

And Bregman was neutralized.

I think I'm remembering this right, but I saw a tweet that said that was the first time he's struck out 3 times in a game since May 2018.

Frank Coonelly out as Pirate team president. Replacement to be revealed Monday.

Before the series I was joking with a friend that the real question is, as well as they have been playing, would the Nationals lose another game this year. Now I'm really starting to wonder.

"That would have been quite a catch by Adam Eaton. However, Springer thinking it was a HR & not making it to 3rd base with 1 out on the play may be of greater significance. Might have tied the game"

Also Brantley not hustling on Gurriel's blood double earlier in the game.


By contrast, Rendon busted his ass to beat out the double play in front of Soto's double. That was the game right there and it was mighty close. The length of Donald Trump's dick
