Hinch needs to have the intentional walk(s) ready to go for Soto


You know how many intentional walks Hinch did all year? Zero. Don't think he will start now.
but he should after what Soto did to Cole last night.

don't be stubborn

Anyone have a single ticket they are looking to sell for tonight? On a related note, would it be weird if I went to the game by myself?

Just no high fastballs for Soto. Seems they were game planning on those

How about instead he tell pitchers to stop throwing 2 strike meatballs to Soto.

Because he made him look silly his first AB then IIRC both hits were with 2 strikes. Had him dead to rights and gifted him pitches to hit.

Always making excuses and passing the buck. Damnit, Bregman.


If you read more he mentioned "sleeping with his bat".

Is that code for being a homosexual? Or is he just really proud of what god gave him?

the WS gear is not overly impressive

Did they have the gameday hats with the WS patch on the side?
my advice is go to Lids or any hat store and do your shopping there for your hat instead of at the field unless you get there super early.....all of the stores at MMP were a giant cluster F

I've heard him on some different podcasts and he has a great sense of humor.

He understands how and why fans react the way they do to him and he takes it in stride.

Joe Buck isn't as bad as everyone thinks he is. He's a good guy and yes he is good at what he does or he wouldn't keep getting the call to broadcast the biggest sporting events in the world.
Yes, while it's fun to rib Joe, he is one of the better national broadcast guys out there. Another thing he does well is let the moment happen and doesn't try too much to insert himself into it.



And yes he's a very self aware human. He also has an interesting story about how he almost lost his career to hair implants.

I go to games by myself all the time. It's why I'm always talking to y'all.

So, who's pitching the first inning as an opener tonight before JV takes over? No first inning long balls!


Kidding, but not really.

Also, Joe Buck's autobiography is pretty entertaining.

We are spoiled by TK and Blummer, but all things considered, Joe isn't bad. When both sides are annoyed by him, he's doing it right.

There ain't nothing wrong with that. I do it several times a year.

I was thinking this thread was kind of dead today compared to the rest of the playoffs.

Probably passed a half dozen homeless encampments on the way to lunch.

I'll leave my politics out of the baseball thread beyond this post.

Wow Philip thats pretty rude. They are not "homeless" they are just currently residential challenged individuals.

You guys going to the game need to rep this thread well.

The crowd last night was a huge letdown. From TV I honestly couldn't tell the difference between last nights crowd and a random weekend crowd during the normal 162.

Completely inexcusable

Pretty sure Fox mutes the crowd. Sounded insanely loud to me.

So how do we attack Strasburg tonight? I haven't watched him a bunch but it looks like he throws a 95-98 mph 4-seam along with a 91 change. He's only allowed 4 ER in 22 innings this postseason with 33 SO and 1 BB. I'm having images of our righties flailing on changeups low and inside.

Just reading that again makes me mad that we didn't do more damage against their bullpen last night.

Going to have to foul off a lot of pitches and defend the zone. This ump likes to call borderline pitches strikes.
