How will Led Zeppelin lose today
   2. Man o' Schwar Posted: October 25, 2017 at 02:06 PM (#5561946)
For tonight's game, I'm going to choose 2 Omnichatter threads, and then give a JD Powers Award to the one that's more dependable.
   3. Pat Rapper's Delight (as quoted on MLB Network) Posted: October 25, 2017 at 02:21 PM (#5561959)
But before Man o' Schwar presents the award, let's take time out for this brief message from one of our sponsors.
   4. Lassus Posted: October 25, 2017 at 02:26 PM (#5561963)
- applause -
   5. Batman Posted: October 25, 2017 at 02:27 PM (#5561964)
Tonight's JD Powers Award-eligible Omnichatter is brought to you by Orville. What happens when the Family Guy guy gets tired of drawing and wants more people to recognize him when he goes to the Olive Garden? Orville happens. Only on Fox.
   6. PreservedFish Posted: October 25, 2017 at 02:28 PM (#5561968)
The LA organist keeps playing the Game of Thrones theme. I don't really get it, just sounds weird.

I hate these so much. And I have to say, Joe Buck doesn't sound thrilled about them either. There's an edge in his voice. I feel like there's a FOX executive threatening him in his earpiece.

I picture the scene from the Simpsons where Burns monetizes the church and Lovejoy is relucant to introduce the Noid to give a sermon about deliciousness. "Trust me, he'll say it or I'll bust him down to Thursday night vespers!"

I must say that I would enjoy FOX advertising a lot more if I knew for certain it involved physical threats against Joe Buck.

That's THE Orville to you, buddy. In the end there can be only one. One hopes.

How long before we have layers of sponsors attached to everything, "Now, the Miss Jessie's Chicken Ranch player of the inning presented by Acticin sponsored by Joe's Crab Shack.
   10. Batman Posted: October 25, 2017 at 04:15 PM (#5562087)
This word from our sponsor, Burger King, is brought to you by Nike.

Well, Infinite Jest "predicted" that we'd be naming the years by now. In its universe, the Yankees would have been your Year of the Depends Adult Undergarment World Champs.

The year the Cubs won will always be the Year of Glad for me.

I'm a huge Dodger fan, but even if they win the World Series, 2017 still sucks.
   14. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 25, 2017 at 07:32 PM (#5562192)
This whole Westeros Series is a joke... just unlikable Martin characters !
Let's see who will die tonight !
   15. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 25, 2017 at 07:47 PM (#5562197)
Hot as bloody #### today, even with the AC going since 10 ... ball should be jumping tonight.
   16. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 25, 2017 at 07:55 PM (#5562199)
Wait ... Showing "A Christmas Story" is now ... a THING?

ON FOX???

AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!

   17. Lassus Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:03 PM (#5562200)
Brad Paisley?

I need to look this dude up.

More or less in tune so far.

ehhhhh..... maybe not.

OW OW OW

Oh well.

I liked the guitar. Peaceful.
   18. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:05 PM (#5562202)
Having watched endured that anthem ... I'm almost glad the Yankees lost and I didn't buy that ticket to this game ...
   19. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:05 PM (#5562203)
Paisley is one of those big truck, cold beer, hot girl and awesome guitar dudes ?

Priceless anthem !
   20. JJ1986 Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:08 PM (#5562204)
Man, Fox really loves its incredibly tiny sample size statistics.
   21. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:08 PM (#5562205)
Oh no, grandpa Vince Scully !

*incoming*

haha, that is funny as hell !
   22. Lassus Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:08 PM (#5562206)
I think I'm going to cry.
   23. The_Ex Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:10 PM (#5562207)
Its LA so everything has to be a production
   24. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:10 PM (#5562208)
This is getting a bit...contrived.
   25. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:10 PM (#5562209)
Vin is getting Tommy John !
Westeros Series suspended !
   26. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:12 PM (#5562210)
Vin should be calling this entire series.

EVERY moment of it.

FERNANDO!!!
   27. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:12 PM (#5562211)
The funny thing is, this pitch is still not going to take as long as some of them during the game.
   28. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:12 PM (#5562212)
Vin should be calling this entire series.

Seconded.

Yup.

Totally.

I don't care ... it's ####### Vin Scully and Fernando Valenzuela!!!
   30. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:13 PM (#5562215)
Oh, for a second there I thought Bill Murray was going to come out and sing Take me out !
   31. Voodoo Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:13 PM (#5562216)
That was wonderful.
   32. What did Billy Ripken have against ElRoy Face? Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:15 PM (#5562217)
it's ####### Vin Scully and Fernando Valenzuela!!!

And Steve Yeager. Can't forget Steve Yeager.

Is Piazza not on speaking terms with the Dodgers or something?
   33. Tony S Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:15 PM (#5562218)
Fernando looks great.

Steve Yeager doesn't look bad, but given that I hadn't laid eyes on him since he was an active ballplayer, he's aged a lot.

As have I.

Go Astros! Let's try not to swing at so many first pitches this time...
   34. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:15 PM (#5562219)
Vin ####### Scully!

[edit] I'm getting old ... or, it's getting really dusty in here ...
   35. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:17 PM (#5562220)
That's a balk ?
Oh, a ball !

Let's go Yankees !
   36. Jack Keefe Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:19 PM (#5562222)
I am here Al to offer Collar Commentation but I warn you that Bed Time at the Keefe Manse is 11pm and Sum Thing tells me that tonite we are back to our usul 4 Hour Ball Games so if I turn into a Pomp Kin along about the Sixth Inning you will know Y.
   37. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:19 PM (#5562223)
For some weird reason I thought Rich Hill was a pitcher for the Angels.
   38. Gazizza, my Dilznoofuses! Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:19 PM (#5562224)
Well, Infinite Jest "predicted" that we'd be naming the years by now.


Shouldn't BBTF refer to the years by the associated failed FOX TV shows? "The Year of Girl's Bluc" or "The Year His Father Was the District Attorney."

You didn't see Major League? (Or Major League II or III, apparently.)
   40. Jack Keefe Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:22 PM (#5562230)
Ha ha the catcher fell on his Keister.
   41. Tony S Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:22 PM (#5562231)
Just the first Major League, a long time ago...
   42. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:22 PM (#5562232)
Austin Barnes... lookin' good !

Popped one out of his glove and caught it, landed on his arse catching that pop-out.
Welcome to the City of Angels !
   43. winnipegwhip Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:23 PM (#5562233)
MLB International feed has a Miller Lite ad behind home plate to the left of screen instead of youtube.
   44. Bote Man Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:25 PM (#5562235)
Rich Hill has his blistering fastball working tonight.
   45. Jack Keefe Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:26 PM (#5562236)
This pitcher Hill looks like some 1 punched his face whilst he was wearing Snowmobile Googles.
   46. Tony S Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:26 PM (#5562237)
Well, that inning died quickly after a promising start...
   47. AT-AT at bat@AT&T Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:28 PM (#5562238)
Groundscrew Worker 1 : We need to fix up this pitching Hill !
Groundscrew Chief : Just punch it hard !
Groundscrew Worker 1 : I did, should be ok for Game 2 !
Groundscrew Chief : Good job ! Here is your Paisley autographed card.
   48. Jack Keefe Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:28 PM (#5562239)
Hey that Galaxy Note8 looks like a way to send dirty pictures over your phone Al have they no Shame.
   49. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:29 PM (#5562240)
Houston hasn't hit anything on the road in a while.
   50. Lassus Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:32 PM (#5562241)
Maybe this game will be 2 hours.
   51. Jack Keefe Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:34 PM (#5562244)
Uhlaender mode them down Al.
   52. Bote Man Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:35 PM (#5562245)
If a ball gets past the catcher and hits that YouTube play icon, what video will we see?
   53. Lassus Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:35 PM (#5562246)
I might have bought that Google phone maybe if it wasn't such an unbelievable snore, design-wise.
   54. Count Vorror Rairol Mencoon (CoB) Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:35 PM (#5562247)
Think this is going to be a GREAT one ...
   55. winnipegwhip Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:36 PM (#5562248)

Maybe they should bring back Cesar Cedeno to hit on the road.

Baseball Reference @baseball_ref
Two players have done that 7x in a series, including Gil Hodges in 1952, Vin Scully's first WS as announcer.

The more you know...
   66. Lassus Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:45 PM (#5562263)
Somehow, I don't think ALL the TV I love is going to be on YOUTUBE TV.
   67. Jack Keefe Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:46 PM (#5562265)
All the TV I love is the Hampster Dance and I am sure that is on You Tube.
   68. PreservedFish Posted: October 25, 2017 at 08:47 PM (#5562266)
A moment of unusual candor and clarity from Mr. Keefe.

I guess Verlander wasn't washed up, was he?

seven games of this, please

Man, these teams stink. No one can hit the ball!

Oh no, not a bunt into your own face !

This. Is. A. Brilliant. Idea.

The Year His Father Was the District Attorney was 2003, right?

Am I wrong in thinking that Arrested Development was also advertised incessantly during the playoffs one year? I remember being very turned off initially because of it.

   91. JJ1986 Posted: October 25, 2017 at 09:13 PM (#5562294)
I think AD was also in 2003. They kept showing "you're doing time." "I'm doing the time of my life."

Puig's arm. So great.

Suddenly Mary Hart has turned into a big, burly black-haired man next to Larry King. Hollywood technology, huh???

At least McCann holds onto the ball when a runner is within 90 feet of him and trying to score.
Of course a large part of your argument quoted the ever reliable framing stats in small sample size also so there was that....
