Always nice to hear bootlicking fascist propaganda on the national baseball broadcast.

Should we start the what’s wrong with Raffi thread?
No need, really. He's spazzing out trying to hit 5-run HR's every swing. Now, we might need to start the "how do we get Raffi to chill the fuck out" thread.

I mean....yeah, I still care. It fucking sucked, bro.
I mean, it was 44 fucking years ago. Let's talk about David Ortiz, Mark Bellhorn, Pedro Martinez, and the historic 0-3 ALCS comeback. Why dwell on a regular season game from 1978? Recent history favors Boston in a big, big fucking way... as recently as 10 fucking months ago. Deal with it, Fox.

FOX only wants to talk about positives for the Yankees. The fact that they choked harder than any team in baseball history doesn't get brought up.

I always laugh whenever national broadcasters can't wait to mention 1978/the payoff game, as if nothing has happened since then. As if the MFY didn't lose a series they were up 3-0, or that the Sox have 4 WS titles, or even that the Red Sox have won every playoff series against the MFY since after 2003, including a one game payoff just last year.

But sure, keep dredging up something that happened 44 years ago.

When Raffy is hotter than a pistol he can hit anything. But when he's struggling he should really make more of an effore to lay off the non strike swings. He could at least be walking a bit. Pitchers don't like throwing him good stuff.

The latter. The charity guy ran out of things to say about the charity and the announcers laid out a little too long, so he kept talking about how people need to support law enforcement and blah blah blah.
You could almost hear them mute his mic, put the muzzle on him, and drag him away before he said "all lives matter."

GREAT start from Crawford, IKF HR1 notwithstanding. This is a good offense, and he kept a lid on them through six.

I really would like to like Crawford ... but I can't until he's eligible to pitch in Toronto

Will ESPN make it 3 for 3 in using too many words to say Hosmer kinda sucks? I like the dude at this money, but c'mon guys...

It's particularly preposterous when you stop to think that this would be like an announcer in the 1978 game bringing up something from a game in 1934.
