Warning - do not watch MLB network now

Recommended Posts

When i turned on MLB,聽it was when Rich Dauer hit a homer to go up 1-0, so that was nice, and then I was smart enough to turn to another channel and warn all of you to stay away, unless you are masochists聽

Both the 1969 and 1979 WS losses were to teams that have taken on an almost legendary status in the history of the game.聽 Hard to think about the years 1969 and 1979 in sports and not think about the Mets and Pirates.聽 But at least with both of those losses, we redeemed ourselves with championships shortly thereafter.聽 They both would have been a lot more painful without 1970 and 1983.聽 Kind of like how I think of 1997 and 2014.....years where we should have been champions but they are super painful because no title followed.聽

Exactly.

I did see the 1965 LA v Minnesota game 7 before that, and man, they sure did call a high strike back then.

1979		2019		Game
03:18.00	03:43.00	1
03:13.00	04:01.00	2
02:51.00	04:03.00	3
03:48.00	03:48.00	4
02:54.00	03:19.00	5
02:30.00	03:37.00	6
02:54.00	03:42.00	7
21:28.00	26:13.00	Sum
03:04.00	03:44.71	Average

Those are game times.聽 An extra 40 minutes a game this past year, which is almost 25% longer.聽 But a 50% increase in three true outcome at bats (K/BB/HR).聽 25% longer, 50% more PAs with the fielders picking dandelions.

I suppose the other side of that coin is five extra free hours of World Series!聽 (Actually the baseball probably didn't take much more or less time, it was the standing around).聽 Looks like game 1 of the 2017 series was the last one played in under 3:00.

Hitters need to get in the box and stay there until their ABs are over.聽 No stepping out, fidgeting with batting gloves, staring at the bat, thinking about everything under the sun between pitches.聽 Take or swing at a pitch, then get ready to do it again.聽 And pitchers should get the ball back from the catcher and be ready to take signs and throw quickly.聽 That would speed up the game a lot and is much needed.

I thought Eddie hit a Grand Slam in the 8th when I saw it live.聽 I still can't believe we lost that series.聽 I will always cringe when I hear We Are Family.聽聽

Once back in the late 80s/early 90s I walked into the Baja Beach Club on the corner of Lombard and Market Place.聽 聽That was the first song they played.聽 聽I turned around and walked out the door immediately and went somewhere else.
