Thought Cora blew it when he lifted Houck.

The Rays sticking to the analytics killed them last year and this year. Should have walked Hernandez.

Sure. Doesnt change the fact that the Rays getting deep into the playoffs is disastrous for baseball

Max dealing and getting cocky throwing an 0-2 pitch with a lot of plate for a HR is so Max...

Was there any explanation for that decision?

That 106.9 mph exit velo, 22 degree launch angle, .890 xBA, fly out that dies near or at the warning track look.

Dude still looked perplexed five minutes later in the dugout.

Reminded me of Will Smith’s fly ball in game 5 of 2019 NLDS

Didn't the hardest hit ball of the 2021 regular season go for a double play?

Yea, because it was hit on the ground. This was in the air. This was in the air with a great launch angle. That ball was flat out murdered. On any other night, in every major league park, thats an extra base hit. And it barely got to the warning track

Dusty squashed Tepera like a bug:

Ryan Tepera says he has never heard of Eric Clapton, but he loves country music:


Dusty is a clown. Never won a WS in 24 tries despite superior teams. Main talent: Knowing what a** to kiss.
Example of his managerial skills: Has Moldanado bunting. Luckily he fouled it off, so with 2 strikes he singles in a run. It took just a couple years to the Nats to win a WS after his ineptness.

Have to give the Giants credit. Shutouts in 2 games against the vaunted Dodgers lineup.

Starting Rondon over Lynn isn't looking like the best move.

Fox announcers making excuses for Houston cheaters. They got their marching orders from the commish.

Fox announcers sounded sad in the 6th as they described Houston's "workmanlike" play. I remember the way Dusty seemed to settle the Nats after Standard Decision.

The Fox announcers are miserably bad. Bob and FP are professionals and these guys seem like amateurs.

Kimbrel has been awful in the playoffs.

So the White Sox go down with their two best starters sitting on the bench.
