The Padres look like they have exciting times on the horizon. How long has it been since they were a playoff team?

2006.

It’s pretty amazing in this day and age to hear something like that on a local broadcast. With him and Palmer you don’t know what is going to come out of their mouths. 

I really like it.

Two bungled defensive plays this inning. In and out of Mancini's glove and Martin can't get one out on that play.

IIRC, that's the stuff that would have gotten Jon Miller fired.

Gary was saying what anyone who has been paying any kind of attention has been thinking.  However, as bad as it is for us to have to watch it, we can turn it off or not pay attention to it.  Gary's gotta be around it all day and talk about it.  And probably pretend to sound upbeat about it.  Which is not hard for the company man, Hunter...but I don't detect any BS in Gary.  

And I think it's grating on him.  Probably because, as he insinuated, Davis is a good guy.  And it sucks to have to watch this on a professional and personal level.

Mancini did not break his wrist. So there is that.  I actually thought Nunez could have saved that later one.

There's always that. Looked like the ball was completely in the glove and came out from hitting the ground.

@justD asked if Gary had had a personal loss with the way he sounds today.

Not sure of Joe Angel's age, but I'm sure the way things were going were a factor in his retirement.  He was not built like Hunter to spout BS.

Yeah. Why I was wondering how he was last night.  

Sounds sick.

Bases loaded for Davis.   Just following GameDay because I'm at work, but I'm on the edge of my seat.

He took a "Ball in dirt".   Great job Chris!

    • Just got through the DVR, and here's the lead.  My goodness - that mustache.  It goes right to the childhood McGregor Flanagan reptilian brain stem.  It's hard to see almost anything else. At one look, I'd say it's maybe an interesting call between him and Cobb for Game 5 next year, while whatever shenanigans/surgeries with Baumann, Hall, Rodriguez (and to a lesser extent Smith/Lowther) are waited out. I heard the Driveline last offseason report, but that hits me wrong for 4-pitch mix guys.  I think I think the devil's bargain of the Driveline-type proposition is you give feel and get dominance.  I see Savant had him at 30 FB, 10 SL, 10 CH, so will be curious to see if a 4th pitch comes out in Turn 2. Great story, and could certainly be a once through order or up/down guy for peak Rutschman teams but would hazard a guess that his IP count medium to long term is probably negatively correlated with team success.  Akin has splashed the pool to grow the group to 6 of "SP's I hope make 150+ starts/OpenerFollows for the 2021 Orioles", but I think Lopez, Smith and Lowther are more my 7/8/9 guys, never mind the Fulmers and Stewarts of the waiver wire. I do hope Zimmermann and all those others have somewhere to continue hot (warm, at least) games in October, whether in Bowie, or at some Super Arizona Fall League to be named later.  October/November Super Arizona Fall League could be like the Futures Game every day if anything could be concocted after the World Series.  Darn tootin I want to see Grayson Rodriguez trying to get Wander Franco out then.  
    • Not an impressive debut. Zimmermann's command was bad. I hope he settles down for his next appearance. Smith is a good prospect, but he only pitched 30 innings in AA last year and that was the highest he's gotten in the minors. Zimmermann, Akin, and Kremer all logged at least 150 innings between AA and AAA before this year.  Plus, 40 man roster considerations are always a factor. Zimmermann and Kremer both needed to be added this winter anyway to avoid getting picked in the Rule 5 draft. Smith does not till next winter.
    • Zimmerman's stuff, I was impressed enough. Command, quite another conversation. If he can command that stuff, I think he's okay. Good stuff, no command, see, Cabrera, D.
    • I thought Wojo looked like a hard rocker, lead singer of something like "Ancient Leviticus Ceremonies" or such. Also, today was my first look at Zimmerman, and I was thinking "why is an actor from a 70's cop show throwing out the first pitch?"
