Red Sox Fan: " I wonder who Farrell will use as his closer tonight?"

Me: "They don't use a closer when they are down by ten runs."

By the way, an article that I read recapping last night's game reminded of a point that myself and Paul Folk have brought up several times in regard to the cause and effect relationship of a baseball game.

THE QUOTE:

"A 55-foot wild pitch in front of the plate to Manny Machado tied the game at 5 with two out and the bases loaded, although the blast Machado followed with to left for a three-run shot one pitch later made the wild pitch seem inconsequential."

Well, Manny-3 run homer may have made that wild pitch seem inconsequential to disheartened Red Sox fans, but I (and Paul) would make the argument that it certainly wasn't. The fact is that when Manny hit his clutch 3-run bomb, we had already tied the game. Had the wild pitch not occurred, then we would have still been down by a run, and Machado would have had more pressure on him, plus Hanrahan's pitch-selection very well may have been different than what he actually threw to Machado at that point.

Would Manny have hit the home run anyway ??? Possibly. Or, he may have hit a bases-clearing double, or he may have hit a 2-RBI single, or he may have flied out or grounded out. But in my rat's ass of an opinion, we'll never know ...... which is fine with me. :)

Another evening of looking = and probably hearing - at all those annoying d-bags behind home plate.

I'm hoping they do the "Davis, Davis, Davis" chant again. Especially while we have people on base.

I think that the wild pitch pretty much guaranteed that Hanrahan wasn't going to throw a slider there. That enabled Manny to sit dead red.

Yuck, I forgot to set the correct broadcast channel on MLB.TV and had to watch 12 seconds of the Boston network.

I'm so sorry you had to go through that. It must have been wicked awful.

Except for Top of the 9th last night! I would have loved to hear that

    • Lets look at both Santander and Nunez offensively at 26 years old Season WOBA WOBACON Barrel % Hard Hit % Exit Velo XBA XSLG XWOBA XWOBACON Renato Nunez .341 .453 12.1 36.4 86.3 .228 .433 .301 .388 Anthony Santander .358 .404 10.2 36.7 88.6 .286 .510 .338 .378 MLB AVG .317 .370 6.4 34.9 88.3 .250 .414 .321 .376 They are not significantly different though Santander is ahead in the most important OBA and especially XWOBA categories.  The key here is defensively value and cost. Santander is a switch hitting plus defensive RFer while Nunez is a DH. If Nunez played any position effectively, he'd be offered arbitration. Santander's issues have been staying healthy and he doesn't walk much, but then again, he doesn't strike out all that much either. Overall, Santander is a more valuable player than Nunez and this is coming from a guy who think Nunez is worth more than obviously the rest of baseball does.
    • Late to this thread but here's mine. Santander I don't expect any more than he gave us this year before he got hurt. But that's ok. A whole healthy year, that's a solid MLer. Hays... health is the biggest question. Total wrench in the gears. In a full year I would expect BIG things from him. He's not going to hit 30 HRs, but he might hit 30+ doubles and steal 30 bases. Play a stellar CF. I like Austin a lot! For a CFer he's what you want, a take charge guy. If there's a Bermuda Triangle pop up, and he can get to it, he will scream out and call everyone off. I noticed that from his first few games up. Not intimidated when he hit the bigs.
    • The original recording has a girl speaking Spanish in the background in a sexy voice. Like 40% the volume of Burdon. At one point she says in English "Are you listening to this?" Right after 3 minutes in. This 45... on the MGM label!  
    • YouTube came up with another of my favorites. That I have history with. 40 years ago my sisters and my cousins would listen to this 45 record endlessly! I was blown away by this song at 11 or 12 years old. Then 20ish years ago I found this live video online and was blown away a second time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3i0DMbCKnAg click it
    • I don't know how other folks classify this... avant garde? To me this is Punk. Like Devo. An influence on Devo!  
    • Then what makes you think another team would give us value for him?
