Thomas Boswell Newsbeat

Thursday, October 31, 2019

A baseball miracle or a deal with the devil? Nah, it was just Nationals baseball.

Boswell rises to the occasion, including this burn:

Next, Soto walked, and Greinke was removed from the game. Don’t ask why, after just 80 pitches, a former Cy Young Award winner with a 2.98 ERA this season would get the hook. But the Astros think they are smart — very, very smart — and that they have the mathematically perfect player for every situation and matchup.

Heh.
