  1. I have to say that they grew on me during this series. The team and the fans showed a lot of grit. Well done.
  2. I am sure there is nonzero error, but it must be much smaller than the human error. I did not know, or remember, that the strike zone is 3D. I have assumed that it was a 2D rectangle positioned at the front of home plate, as we see on the broadcast. How can the home plate umpire call a 3D strike zone when he doesn't have the perspective?
  3. I see that the thread has been bumped, and with good reason. This is what I posted three years ago and I still think exactly like that.
  4. Game 3 was really the pivotal game of the series for the Nationals. They allowed the Astros back in, who are feeling confident again. Nationals may still win but it will be very difficult.
  5. Answer to my own question: https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/mlb/playoffs/2019/10/25/nationals-baby-shark-song-world-series/2458499001/ A little too silly if you ask me.
  6. It was of course a generalization, but with not intent to offend.
  7. https://www.cnn.com/2019/10/24/sport/houston-astros-brandon-taubman/index.html Forget the bat flips, this whole episode, shows that they do not have good people on the field (Osuna) or in the FO (this guy and those initially covering up for him). Perhaps a sweep by the Nationals is an adequate result.

  9. They are in different leagues but the sport is the same. People do not root for two teams in the same sport. So if more people start following the Nationals, fewer will follow the Orioles. It is a zero-sum game, especially now that the overall number of baseball fans does not appear to be increasing. With that said, you are free to root for anyone you want, of course.
  10. Thanks, but I was referring to a hand sign that the fans and players are doing.
  11. Good point. But still a play that people will remember if Houston goes on to lose. It opened up the flood gates, as these kinds of errors often do.
  12. Argh, I thought it was Chris Davis.
  13. What's with this hand clap? Can someone enlighten me?
  14. If Bill Buckner gets all the ridicule for that error in the WS, Bregman should get some too. Easy play for a major league infielder.
