In that case they don't look stoopid?

Thanks

Tip of the cap to Yuli. Those were great digs on 2 DPs and the Bregman spin throw.

4 innings into Cards v Braves. Has Acuna jogged on a liner to the wall and tap danced at 3B while rounding the bases yet?

The fact that Yuli is our 5th best player just speaks to how good we are

Hear them talking about how Cole is like the same pitcher as JV and they thought the Rays would be much better against Cole? What a load of crap!

I'm confused why they are talking up the Rays so much, I'd understand if against the Yankees or dodgers but Tampa?

I guess they are trying to keep interest in the series. I fully expect us to rough up Snell early and often tomorrow.

They gave this team, Verlander and Cole a lot of props. Cole/Verlander are similar, and they both dominate as well. Papi was just trying to bring some hope to Tampa and their fans -- that is that the pitching will be somewhat repetitive tomorrow -- and not really change of pace.

What do you want them to say? No need to watch, the series is over? They are there to drive interest and eyeballs moreso than insight.

Only thing I can figure is they are trying get/keep Tampa fans excited and get more than 4000 at their home game.

Couple of things:
- JV changed this entire franchise's history, and continues to.
- As always, we go as 27 goes.
- 10 more.

Because all of those ****s live and work on the east coast and are more familiar with them.

My gosh, it's the playoffs and people are going to score on you. The lead is protected and we probably won't have many shutouts throughout the postseason. Also, some of your players are going to have off days, and the other teams, have great players, too.

My gosh. This kind of thinking is not allowed here.

Would be awesome to see Cole put up the same numbers JV did today

They're pretty good. They won 96 and sent Oakland home. This will probably be the best pitching we will see until we get LA (if we both make it) in the WS.

Hopefully. I still have a little burn from 2018 when we expected Cole to come in and dominate and he crapped the bed.

Anything is possible but I think we can all agree he's a different pitcher than he was two years ago.

Yeah, but they play in the AL east. They actually watch their games.

He had 2 starts. Dominated 1 and didn't the other.

They did it last night with an actual Cherokee Indian on the mound. I don't he appreciated it.

I also seem to remember a little bit of bad luck for him at Fenway. Didn't he have a ball bounce up and roll on the ledge of the matting against the wall that went over the OFs head? I feel like it also let a run score.

My VPN+mlb.tv trick isn't working anymore. It worked yesterday and Tuesday. Is there anyone who actually likes traditional cable anymore?

You do not need the VPN trick for the postseason. There are not any blackout areas.

Good W
Glasnow looked great. Even Josie said postgame his FB is basically invisible.
As for the broadcast crew yeah they were slobbing his knob but I think that's because tomorrow is gonna be the Gerrit Cole show. They're gonna be all about Cole and Snell is aight. They can't be all over our Ds every game.

So I guess you need an all-team subscription on mlb.com to watch the Yankees tonight?
