Some swear words in it as one would guess, so careful kids, but the jomboy breakdown has a good amount of detail on the exchange.

I saw Eduardo Perez on the Sunday Night countdown show, and A-Rod in booth with favorable takes on Machado's conduct in this one.

 

Our Manny has grown up.  I'm impressed.

Freddy Galvis ice cold, struck out in a big spot to end 2-1 loss putting the Dombrowskis close to the edge.

A scuffling Will Smith walked Bryce to lead off top 9 defending a 2-0 lead, then yielded three hard hit balls (99/105/100) including a fielding error to bring Galvis up two out, man on 3rd.

At start of at-bat, announcers had that Galvis on an 0-for-17.

Tingler may or may not be fired today, but Gausman has needed just 23 pitches first time through the order as the Giants look to clinch while Dodgers digest tough Kershaw (impending free agent?!?!) news.

Wildcard wise, I think Buehler is Scherzer's reliever, and that's it.   Counting chickens a little early, Cardinals Devil Magic worth 200 runs of differential?

Gausman was great in Game 162 to secure our last berth 5 years back.

Ken Singleton, filling in the 4th inning of a 7-1 game, just announced tomorrow he's retiring after 37 years of broadcasting.

Michael Kay seemed genuinely surprised.

Singleton has been broadcasting for 37 years?   Man I’m old!

Jace Peterson, Milwaukee Brewers utility player--and pitcher of 3 career innings with three different teams including the Orioles--walked both times he batted in the playoffs against the Braves. He had 302 plate appearances for the Brewers during the 162. Interesting note: Jace has walked all three of his career playoff PAs.

Evan Phillips, cut by the Orioles in August, just pitched the 7th inning for the Dodgers in the critical Game 3 of the NLCS.

Scoreless inning.  1 hit and 2 Ks.

They tried to get another inning out of him, he retired the first two Braves but then walked two and is out.  Still a chance for 1.2 scoreless in the NLCS if his runners are stranded, not bad for a guy who got cut by the worst team in baseball 2 months ago.

Another fine turn just now, firing up Kershaw and Scherzer, and trying to keep the season alive.   He's taking to this October relief thing like Mike Mussina or something.

Turn of the juju picking up steam as Pollock gets Fried to halve the deficit coming off Phillips' good work?

    • First of all, the current state of the program absolutely matters and it matters a hell of a lot more than MDs title in 2002. Would those schools out hire?  Maybe..money is important and the Terps haven’t had any. BTw, I meant Texas Tech, not Texas A&M.  Now, we will see what TT does after losing Beard but that’s been a really good program recently. FSU has been a far better program than MD for a solid 5-10 years.  It’s not close.  They have had several first round picks, highly ranked recruiting classes and lots of tourney success, not to mention being one of the winningest programs in the ACC. Your last sentence is just wrong.  The idea that you think it’s clear is absurd. They have limited recent success(especially in March), not much national appeal, no money and no real high end picks to point to in the league recently.     Like I said, the right coach can elevate the program back to what you are saying…but as we talk now, as the job is looked at by recruits, etc…it’s not there anymore.  Things can change.  
    • I'm pretty sure these guys call the Summer Eve's Douche Bowl. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=522H44ddePQ
    • Being the number one destination by a long shot in an area with top 5 amateur talent still matters. Being in an attractive major urban area still matters. Having top notch facilities and fan base still matters. Leaving the ACC hurt the programs standing.  But there's a reason the school has had such sustained stretches of success in the past.  Even under Turgeon the team was generally a top 25ish team. If you get fired for being generally top 25ish, that's because people have higher expectations for the program.  And they should.  Because the school has all the advantages to be a top 20 team annually.   Now, that's not saying this hire will end up well for MD.  They could conceivably get worse.  But that won't be because of the program's potential.
    • I think you're looking at it the wrong way by placing too much emphasis on the current state of the program.  I of course don't think thry are currently a top-25 program.  But Maryland was able to lure away P5 coaches from schools that are on your list for their last 2 coaching hires, including during a time when they were facing NCAA sanctions.  On top of that, they were really close to luring away a coach (Sean Miller) from a program that I had listed as better than us.  That's fact, not theory.  I don't believe for a second that Turgeon's tenure here dropped the desirability of this job down to where we aren't still close to that level, nor do I think that the other schools closed the gap so significantly that we are worse than all of them.   Let's look at it another way.  If Iowa lost its coach and were looking for a coach this offseason, would they beat us out in terms of hires?  Would TAMU?   Would Alabama?  Would USC?  With Iowa and TAMU I feel very strongly thay they wouldn't. Especially since we already poached one coach from TAMU.  Alabama?  Maybe depending on how much a coach values environment over Benjamin's, but I also don't think Alabama would pay a coach top dollar unless it's someone like Nate Oats and has proven success with the program.  USC?  Only for someone who wants to be in LA.  FSU?  Absolutely not.  Auburn?  similar to Alabama IMO but maybe more tilted in favor of Auburn.  Arkansas?  Debatable as well.   Regardless there are enough schools on this list where I think Maryland comes out clearly ahead in this exercise that I feel comfortable putting this HC position as a top-25 job.
    • Well, Westry is out.  Smith hurt his ankle And Young was sick.  It could mean they just want more depth and that none of them are out. The McCrary thing is interesting.  Wonder if they give him carries tomorrow?
    • 2022 MLB Draft - Top 200 Prospects — Prospects Live   I posted this a month ago.  Check out his swing at No. 7.    
    • Apparently Enfield has some local ties…maybe that’s a big help. Odom, the coach at UMBC when they beat UvA figures to be on the list too.
