When I'm watching a game with cardboard cutouts in the background, I find it hard to be too offended by the new extra inning rules.A’s win. Overtime rules are bullshit. Fuck Rob Manfred.
Joe West 1 - Rays 0 to start the season. Some things stay the same regardless of apocalypses. Rays win 4-1 today behind good start from Yarbrough and big hits from Lowe and Ji-Man.Joe West squeezing Charlie Morton and costing him a couple runs, 3-0 Toronto.
I'm rooting for "the world".The Astros have scored 15 runs in two games. That lineup is still stacked, with or without trash cans. They probably have the whole “Us against the world” thing going on in the clubhouse too. Still a dangerous team.
Seattle being awful helps too.
Yeah their top 15 or so guys are still superb, but their depth behind them is pretty thin. They are still the favorites in the West though.The Astros have scored 15 runs in two games. That lineup is still stacked, with or without trash cans. They probably have the whole “Us against the world” thing going on in the clubhouse too. Still a dangerous team.
As exceedingly happy as I am to have baseball back, I couldn't hate that damn rule more.In two innings pitched, James Karinchak allows one baserunner who was promptly thrown out trying to steal second... but Karinchak could lose the game because of fake extra innings.
Agreed. Velocity is a concern if he wasn’t intentionally holding some of it back to try to get better control. We’ll see what he shows next Sunday but clearly going to be a mixed bag this year.Yeah, I also saw his start and it's troubling he was only at 92-94. That level of velocity will not keep him in the rotation.
