Yeah, that play at the plate was exciting, stupid, and brutal all at the same time. Exciting because, of course, the tying run got cut down at home plate on a great throw. Stupid, because there were NO OUTS so I don't know what he was thinking risking trying to score there. And Brutal because, yeah...bad collisions, bad break for Lin. He'll be out for a while and he's one of the Brothers' best players.
   203. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 26, 2020 at 05:58 PM (#5944698)
Also, NO GAMES ON MONDAY!! See y'all Tuesday at 6:30 EST.
   204. Howie Menckel Posted: April 28, 2020 at 07:10 AM (#5945311)
in linking hell with this league

any easy way in?

Eleven Sports Taiwan is all in on basketball
   205. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 28, 2020 at 07:47 AM (#5945317)
Just go to the Fubon Guardians official Twitter account. they're streaming Monkeys Vs Guardians.
   206. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 28, 2020 at 07:48 AM (#5945318)
Great pitching duel in progress.
   207. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 28, 2020 at 07:49 AM (#5945319)
I think K.C. Fan should get a contract offer from the Royals...just because.
   208. Howie Menckel Posted: April 28, 2020 at 08:10 AM (#5945329)
the feed

wasn't working for me before on Firefox, looks like it's ok now

I'll shoot for tomorrow's game instead

but I have half a premier beer on Guardians -1.5 runs today, so go blowout!
   209. Howie Menckel Posted: April 28, 2020 at 12:47 PM (#5945446)
hah, turns out I actually bet the MONKEYS -1.5 runs and a 3-0 shutout paid out $10.30 for me.

tomorrow I hope to actually be able to watch the game I bet on. got too busy after trouble with my original feed.
   210. Howie Menckel Posted: April 28, 2020 at 06:31 PM (#5945623)
so what sayeth the peanut gallery - who do we like tomorrow?

the Monkeys are a stronger "bet $155 to win $100" favorite on DraftKings even giving 1.5 runs to the Guardians - or $255 to win $100 that the Monkeys win, period.

the over/under is 9.5 runs. if I roll the dice that the Guardians pull off the upset, my $100 turns into $190.*

(* - for illustration purposes only. I think the second-biggest bet of my life was 20 bucks.)

rounding out the 4-team league's schedule tomorrow, the Brothers are even money to beat the Lions by more than a run. in this one, the over/under is 10.5 runs.
   211. Howie Menckel Posted: April 29, 2020 at 01:31 AM (#5945728)
the line has shifted - and damn the torpedoes, I am now going Monkeys at -2.5 runs at a mere 100 to win 107 (aka 3 to win $6.21. and if I have buyer's remorse, I can "cash out" immediately and only lose 15 cents lol).

if I hit another one, I'd be happy to "bankroll" the collective BBTF play of the day
:)

gets everyone a tiny speck of 'skin in the game' when the real world to some extent doesn't exist anymore
   212. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 08:50 AM (#5945762)
Monkeys looking good so far for Howie.

Over on the other game the Lions are about to overtake the Brothers, perhaps.

Gulf in announcing quality between Wayne/Dick and the guys on Eleven Sports is wide.
   213. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 08:52 AM (#5945763)
uh oh.... trouble brewing for the Monkeys.
   214. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 08:56 AM (#5945766)
Ooh...I just noticed that Eleven Sports has English graphics now and MPH for the radar gun. That's new!
   215. Howie Menckel Posted: April 29, 2020 at 09:08 AM (#5945770)
some of us idiots here not finding the direct links to the games....

still scrambling with no luck on Monkeys Twitter feed

links would be our friend
   216. Howie Menckel Posted: April 29, 2020 at 09:26 AM (#5945775)
my kingdom for a link to audio/video

looks like I lead not enough 5-3 in the 8th
   217. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 09:29 AM (#5945776)
Howie, it's right on the Fubon Guardians twitter account!

https://twitter.com/FubonGuardians
   218. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 09:29 AM (#5945777)
BOTTOM NINTH STARTING! HURRY HOWIE!!
   219. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 09:31 AM (#5945779)
Wait, I just realized you're already screwed. Man the Monkeys flied out to the wall to end the top of the ninth. I guess your only hope now is for Fubon to tie it.
   220. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 09:31 AM (#5945780)
BTW, the other game is on Eleven Sports Taiwan twitter.

Also, if you have Twitch, you can also get the Brothers' Mandarin feed.
   221. Howie Menckel Posted: April 29, 2020 at 09:33 AM (#5945781)
found this too late. yes, I presumably lost.

https://twitter.com/i/broadcasts/1RDGlQNgmjjJL

if we can provide links before each game, that might increase our audience here. I kept looking for Monkeys feeds.

lurkers presumably have even less incentive to fish around.

any games on Thursday?

and if so, links would be great
   222. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 09:45 AM (#5945783)
I'll try to post links before games. When the Guardians are home, the games will always be on the Fubon Guardians official twitter page.

https://twitter.com/FubonGuardians


Most other games will be on the Eleven Sports Taiwan twitter page:

https://twitter.com/ElevenSportsTW

The day's game will usually be pinned to the top of the feed. You can watch the end of the Lion/Brothers right now! Although the brothers just put up a barrage to make a close game 9-4.

   223. Howie Menckel Posted: April 29, 2020 at 09:49 AM (#5945784)
The day's game will usually be pinned to the top of the feed.

not sure what that means, WJ
   224. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 09:49 AM (#5945785)
And here's a link to the schedule! Monday is always an off day.

https://twitter.com/ElevenSportsTW/status/1249345288663207937/photo/1

Tomorrow just one game: the Brothers vs. The Lionsat 6:30 am EST. The game will be on Eleven Sports Taiwan twitter.
   225. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 09:50 AM (#5945786)

not sure what that means, WJ


This is like trying to teach my grandfather to program his VCR in 1991.
   226. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 09:51 AM (#5945787)
anyway, sorry, pinned to the top of the feed means it will always be the first post on the twitter page. They keep it "pinned" to the top so it's the very first post for the duration of the game.
   227. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 09:52 AM (#5945788)
Lions still scratching and clawing....get a run back to make it 9-5. Come on Uni Presidents!!
   228. Howie Menckel Posted: April 29, 2020 at 09:52 AM (#5945789)
This is like trying to teach my grandfather to program his VCR in 1991.

pretty much

but plenty of lurkers here who will check in occasionally, but not watch, without a direct link posted

the customer is always right!
   229. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 09:54 AM (#5945790)
Maybe I could get qle to put the links up top.
   230. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 10:02 AM (#5945796)
Last licks for the Lions coming up....long shot but, hey, it's the last chance to watch baseball for 24 hours.
   231. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 10:04 AM (#5945799)
It may also interest you to know, Howie and other lurkers, that the Korean league starts on Tuesday. I have no idea about the streaming situation yet, though.
   232. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 10:10 AM (#5945801)
Lions have something cooking here....need one more baserunner.
   233. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 10:19 AM (#5945805)
tying run to the plate for the Lions!

"In a coat of gold or a coat of red...."
   234. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 10:22 AM (#5945808)
BAse hit!!! two runs in and it's 9-7!! Tying runs on base with one out.
   235. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 10:25 AM (#5945809)
Huge K for out number two, but boy pitcher got away with one.

Last out for the Lions.
   236. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 10:27 AM (#5945810)
DOUBLE OFF THE WALL!! 9-8....oh man hard not to send him there but probably the right decision.
   237. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 10:28 AM (#5945811)
ooh...Brothers hold on. Sheesh...what a finish.
   238. The Yankee Clapper Posted: April 29, 2020 at 02:20 PM (#5945889)
If the Chinese Professional Baseball League isn’t already exciting enough, Manny Ramirez is looking to land a roster spot. Wants to be a player-coach. Could be a useful teaching tool - nobody does the cut-off play like Manny.
   239. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 29, 2020 at 05:30 PM (#5945959)
I know Manny is an all time great but this league is not so full of jabronies that he would actually be able to earn a spot at 48.
   240. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 30, 2020 at 07:32 AM (#5946062)
Link for today's game. Lions out to an early lead.

https://twitter.com/ElevenSportsTW/status/1255508166055530502
   241. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 30, 2020 at 07:44 AM (#5946064)
Don't these Taiwanese clubs know that blowouts do us no good!!
   242. bunyon Posted: April 30, 2020 at 07:51 AM (#5946065)
The announcers are very like US announcers in that their goto blowout chatter is food.

But they seem to disagree with each other more.
   243. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 30, 2020 at 08:07 AM (#5946067)
These eleven sports announcers are getting better...it can't be easy to call a game in your second language without a Wayne McNeil to hold things steady.
   244. bunyon Posted: April 30, 2020 at 08:34 AM (#5946072)
Yeah, they're good. It really seems like two guys watching a game together instead of a "show".

Shame it's not a better game.
   245. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 30, 2020 at 09:10 AM (#5946082)
OOOF....jsut when the Brothers had come back to make a game of it, the Lions ice it with a grand salami
   246. Jefferson Manship (Dan Lee) Posted: April 30, 2020 at 10:17 AM (#5946105)
I can't decide whether I love or hate these Brothers uniforms. I'm getting early 80s Pirates vibes.

BTW, I've added the KBO to EveryBaseballScore.com and - I don't remember whether I've already said this - I've got the Romanization of player names up and running for the CPBL.
   247. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 30, 2020 at 01:58 PM (#5946236)
Truly the best Romanization since the Romanization of Gaul.
   248. Howie Menckel Posted: April 30, 2020 at 06:16 PM (#5946347)
I might get back on the Monkeys bandwagon tomorrow....
   249. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 30, 2020 at 07:11 PM (#5946370)
Good choice Howie...Chu Yu-Hsien and Lin Li are a devastating duo.
   250. Howie Menckel Posted: April 30, 2020 at 09:06 PM (#5946396)
6:30 am again?

and can I find it on the Monkeys' Twitter account?

ok, 6:35 am

and I guess the rival Brothers are decent - I just put 3 shekels on the Monkeys at even-money to win by at least 2 runs
   251. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: April 30, 2020 at 10:54 PM (#5946405)
I believe the Brothers vs. Monkeys will be on Eleven Sports Taiwan twitter account.

The Lions vs. the Guardians should be on the Guardians twitter account (I think)
   252. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 06:50 AM (#5946422)
BOTH GAMES ON ELEVEN SPORTS TAIWAN
   253. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 07:11 AM (#5946423)
Wayne and Richard finally got some food!!
   254. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 07:12 AM (#5946424)
Dude the food looks amazing
   255. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 07:15 AM (#5946425)
bring out the Lions Heads
   256. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 07:20 AM (#5946426)
wow how was he safe at home
   257. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 07:29 AM (#5946428)
ah he wasn't
   258. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 07:33 AM (#5946429)
What the hell was that. Atrocious attempt to steal home leads to a balk.
   259. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 07:56 AM (#5946431)
where's the monkey mascot??
   260. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 08:58 AM (#5946440)
Wow, perfectly executed hit and run there.
   261. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 09:07 AM (#5946444)
Monkeys up against it here: Bonilla is out of the game and their atocious bullpen is tying to put out the fire. Bases loaded no outs.
   262. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 09:11 AM (#5946445)
4-3 Brothers now. Man this is hard to watch.
   263. bunyon Posted: May 01, 2020 at 09:15 AM (#5946446)
This fell apart in a hurry.
   264. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 09:15 AM (#5946447)
Ok so bringing in the guy with the 9 era and the 3 home runs allowed in 4 innings and a 3 whip predictably did not work out. Another RBI single and a close play at the plate makes it 5-3. Can't complain about the action today!
   265. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 09:17 AM (#5946449)
263. Yeah, the Monkeys look unstoppable UNLESS they have to lean on their bullpen when their foreign horses falter.
   266. bunyon Posted: May 01, 2020 at 09:19 AM (#5946450)
Brutal error.
   267. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 09:20 AM (#5946451)
Nightmare inning here.
   268. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 09:25 AM (#5946454)
FINALLY. That innning was like 40 minutes long.
   269. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 09:25 AM (#5946455)
I fully expect the Monkeys to rally. To become rally MONKEYS if you will.
   270. bunyon Posted: May 01, 2020 at 09:26 AM (#5946456)
It was a nice metaphor for April.
   271. bunyon Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:09 AM (#5946465)
Runners on.
   272. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:09 AM (#5946466)
This could turn into an exciting finish...
   273. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:13 AM (#5946467)
you know one thing about all the teams having trash bullpens is that you should never turn off a game
   274. bunyon Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:16 AM (#5946468)
Tying run to the plate
   275. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:17 AM (#5946469)
welp....here we go. How long until Chu is up
   276. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:19 AM (#5946471)
this is pitiful
   277. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:23 AM (#5946472)
time for the Chu Yu-Hisen walkoff.

OHHH! Why STEAL THERE? You just took the bat out of his hands.
   278. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:23 AM (#5946473)
They're not walking him?? Madness.
   279. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:25 AM (#5946474)
Well now the calculus changes....Chen just needs to put the bat on the ball.
   280. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:25 AM (#5946475)
WOW. They get Chu swinging and I look dumb.
   281. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:26 AM (#5946476)
Wow! Clutch!! tie game
   282. bunyon Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:26 AM (#5946477)
New ball game.
   283. bunyon Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:31 AM (#5946480)
New ball game.
   284. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:44 AM (#5946490)
Remember that games are ties after 12. Hopefully someone gets a win.
   285. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:48 AM (#5946492)
For some reason the Monkeys took Chu Yu-Hsien out of the game for defense. Seems like an odd move in a tie game.

NICE 1-4-3 double play there.
   286. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:53 AM (#5946494)
92 mph "gas" for the K there. That seems to be about where the Taiwanese homegrown pitchers top out.
   287. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:57 AM (#5946498)
THE BALLSY TWO STRIKE BUNT
   288. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 10:59 AM (#5946499)
Why not walk Lin Li?
   289. Howie Menckel Posted: May 01, 2020 at 11:12 AM (#5946503)
so the Monkeys trail 9-8 in the 12th.

I need to win by 3 runs, so need a walkoff 3-run HR or grand slam in the bottom of the 12th or I'm cooked (again).
   290. bunyon Posted: May 01, 2020 at 11:15 AM (#5946505)
Squeeze!
   291. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 11:17 AM (#5946508)
wow...when was the last time you saw a suicide squeeze in MLB??
   292. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 11:20 AM (#5946511)
Howie is the Monkey's jinx
   293. Howie Menckel Posted: May 01, 2020 at 11:27 AM (#5946516)
line was 8 to 1 against the Monkeys on DraftKings once down 9-8.

now 10-8, and it's walkoff slam or bust
   294. bunyon Posted: May 01, 2020 at 11:35 AM (#5946518)
Amazing
   295. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 11:35 AM (#5946519)
holy crap!!! what an ending!!
   296. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 11:36 AM (#5946521)
I've been watching baseball 30+ years...never seen a last out like that.


   297. Howie Menckel Posted: May 01, 2020 at 11:38 AM (#5946524)
had hopes of a "Cinderella story" there - but no, alas

line dropped to 5 to 1 on money line once 2 runners got aboard
   298. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 01, 2020 at 11:42 AM (#5946529)
last out

https://mobile.twitter.com/michaelsclair/status/1256246226732888065
   299. Howie Menckel Posted: May 02, 2020 at 01:43 AM (#5946852)
a few more coins on the Monkeys again on Sat - but I'll wake up and find out if they won by the needed 2 runs
   300. Weekly Journalist_ Posted: May 02, 2020 at 06:39 AM (#5946854)
Esmil Rogers did NOT have it today
