I've often heard the diagnosis of forearm strain, which sounds innocuous, but then it turns out TJ is required. Dusty Baker does sound optimistic, though.i mean, if it is serious surgery, that has to be the end of the road for him, no? Maybe they are just gonna let him sit for a bit and see if it gets better so he can have one last hurrah in the postseason?
Vlad Jr. could have ended it in the 9th if he knew how to play 1B, but instead he dove for the ball and so the pitcher had to cover.Ji-Man Choi had 735 MLB at bats coming into today, all left-handed. He used to switch hit in the minors and decided to pick that back up during Covid break and in his 2nd RH at bat today hit a 109.9 mph laser beam into the seats. Rays walked it off in the 10th.
He's said it at least one other time during a game. He claims Lou Piniella taught him that and that it's very smart.You want only an even number lead? How the fuck do you come to that conclusion, ARod? A team would prefer a 6 run lead to a 7? This is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard on a baseball broadcast, no hyperbole.
His descent feels somewhat like Bard's, though he had a longer history of success behind him.0.1 IP, 0 H, 4 BB, 1 HBP, 2 ER so far, 34 pitches for only 13 strikes, pulled, winning run on 2nd.
He reminds me of a right handed Big Unit when he’s dealing. He was touching 100 and just straight up nasty. He got pulled at 72 pitches after the Rays hung an 8 spot up in the bottom of the 4th. They’re going to manage his pitch counts pretty tightly. Oh what might have been last year if he wasn’t tipping pitches in game 5 against HOU.Glasnow with 9 K’s in 4 IP tonight. Electric stuff.
So that’s the pitch he was practicing when he broke his window at home.Joe Kelly just set off a benches-clearing situation in Houston. Threw a 96 mph heater behind Bregman's head, and then did this when the inning ended:
Here's the pitch to Bregman:
An every day player is much more valuable than a closer, maybe why he works at espn now instead of for an mlb team
I had the exact same thought. Here's the Jomboy review:So that’s the pitch he was practicing when he broke his window at home.
I’m fine with plunking them below the waist one time if a pitcher is capable of it (and most MLB pitchers should be). Correa especially has been defiant and not contrite at all. He didn’t learn his lesson.The throwing at the Astros stuff is beyond childish. They got caught, they've been punished. Throwing at them exacts what sort of "revenge?" It's only going to lead to someone getting injured.
