Dyson Said He Doesn't Expect Series To Return To Baltimore

Recommended Posts

Nice guys finish last.

Guys who sacrifice original thought for stale platitudes don't survive long enough to compete in the first place.

"One good thing for us," the Royals' Jarrod Dyson said after Game 5, "we don't have to worry about Bumgarner no more."

Thoroughly enjoyed seeing Dyson's stunned mug in the dugout after Bumgarner took KC down for the third time. Schadenfreude, you better believe it.

Me too. Part time pinch hitters shouldn't run theirs.

If you take out the double negative, doesn't that read...

we DO have to worry about Bumbarner SOME more?

Deep down he knew this was coming ;)

Hahaha yes that is literally what he said, which is just icing on the cake. His quote sounds colloquially correct, but it was completely opposite per his intention.

We'll call the Giants win a fine dose of grammar karma.

So happy to see Dyson, the horse duo (Hosmer/Moustakis) and KC lose. If it wasn't for their shenanigans when playing us, I would have been for them. However, I am glad SF won.

    • I don’t think we saw enough of Valaika defensively at 2B (73 innings total) to draw any conclusions about whether he’s better than Alberto.    I tend to doubt he is, but I don’t really have a strong view about it.     I thought Valaika did a nice job with the bat, and in particular, showed more power than I would have expected.   I’m not sold that he’s a .791 hitter, but he showed enough to hold his 40-man spot this winter.    
    • my takeaway from 2020 is Mountcastle, Hays, Akin, Kremer, and to lesser extent Mullins.   Santander and Iglesias did good things.  Means finished strong.  Hope.
    • Joe West and Angel Hernandez asked me to say hello for them.
    • Thanks for sharing that.  Don’t believe I’ve heard Martyn before.  Now, I’d like to hear the Foo Fighters cover it.
    • The great increases in homers and strikeouts have occurred in the last few years. I think it may be because the players are practicing putting backspin on the balls when they hit them. The backspin will make the balls travel farther, but it's also harder to put backspin on a baseball by hitting it. If you watch Sports Center when they are showing highlights of homeruns, they usually show in slow motion some of the batters' swings. If you see this from the camera angle that is near the dugout facing the batter, you can see that the batters are swinging using a downward angle. The downward angle will put backspin on the ball(if it is hit just right). It's also harder to hit the ball when your swing has that angle. So if the batters hit the pitches just right, the balls will have backspin and if those balls are in the air they will have more of a chance of going over the fence. But it is also harder to make contact with the pitch, which makes an increase in strikeouts inevitable.  Analytics have made the old idea of the level swing just something in the memories of us old-timers.
    • I like games when balls are put in play.  Mountcastle puts balls in play.  I like Ryan Mountcastle. 😉
    • DJ LeMahieu is a free agent at the end of the year
