Did I see correctly that it's the middle of the 2nd?  Feels like it should be at least the 3rd to me.

So far, Snell looks effective. Rays wated some chances for a 3 run lead.

Don't we all!  Liquor store is closed and I've been reduced to nursing what I have on hand, which is running dangerously low.

I didn't plan this out very well.  Neglected the 5 Ps  :smh:

I am probably calling it quits after 3 beers and a jack at CCSP.  Weird to be out on the porch near the open window and have no one around.

The  Chevy Suburban commercial showing old models back to the 70s reminds me of Gina Hernandez back in high school.  Her family had a Suburban back when no one had seen SUVs
 She said something like they used them out on oil drilling sites to transport crews.

Inexplicable call by Cash to yank Snell.  That's what the kids these days refer to as "pulling a dave".

He'd been pretty damn good all playoffs until that boneheaded move.

And when you make obviously bad moves, you get called garbage.

You know who was more stunned? Dave Robert's. He finally gets to be on the other side of a bone headed managerial decision

It really made me wonder what the manager's plan was to take Snell out

I'm waiting for the Mystery Machine to pull up and the Scooby Doo gang to pull off the the Kevin Cash mask to reveal Dave Roberts.  Afterwards, they'll remove the Dave Roberts mask to reveal Tommy Lasorda.

They'll find the real Kevin Cash tomorrow tied up in a janitor's closet.

They're likely to find Cash living in a van down by the river after this one...

No, this is what Cash has done all season.

But he had too. Glasnow is made of glass. Snell wasn't right until late September. His rotation was Charlie Morton and a bunch of 2-4 inning pitchers.

Cash should have recognized that Snell was good and he didn't need to play based solely on his analytics department.

Listened to the beginning of the game on radio. Dodgers broadcast. Charlie Steiner and Rick Monday. Monday had a great voice. He should do play by play and Steiner color.

Another case of over-managing.
