Red Socked in the 7th

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on October 28, 2018

Our idiot Liar in Chief decided to chime in on baseball last night:

Look, fans always want to have it both ways. And if Trump is saying it you know it’s a fools take. But when a guy has pitched 10 innings in 4 weeks you don’t just leave him out there until it all falls apart. Cora took a ton of shit for leaving Rodriguez in TOO LONG. And Roberts literally just watched that blow up in his face. Hill had thrown more than 100 pitches 3 times all season. They had a commanding lead. To top it off, Hill literally told Roberts he was nearly done. And while the bullpen was gassed from the night before, if you had told Roberts before the game he was going to get Hill into the 7th inning he would have thanked God and confidently gone to his bullpen. Now, you can argue with his bullpen choices I guess, but that’s lame. The bullpen is there for a reason. You have to use it and these guys either perform or they don’t. That’s not totally on the manager.

Ugh, defending Roberts just took a lot out of me. Time to wrap this thread up (as well as the series later tonight).

My favorite image from last night:

    What about Pearce for MVP, Kat?

    • Flavor said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:08 pm

      that seems like a guarantee

      • zumiee said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:12 pm

        Not Price?

      • Flavor said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:15 pm

        i’m calling Pearce but Price wouldn’t shock me

  2. zumiee said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:05 pm

    Kelly was actually considered a bit of a bust initially for the Red Sox.

  3. Flavor said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:08 pm

    let’s go. Time to choke the life out of these fuckers. Whatever life they once had in them, anyway

    • zumiee said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:11 pm

      Squeeze the juice out of them, so to speak.
      I know, I know, there’s no proof.

  4. zumiee said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:09 pm

    A dramatic Pederson AB going on, and they do a Taco Bell commercial. It’s an insult to baseball fans. MLB needs to eliminate that “innovation.”

  5. Lurker John said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:16 pm

    Hernandez completely fooled on that slider.

  6. blade3colorado said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:16 pm

    Price will get it.

    • alleykat69 said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:19 pm

      Easy Blade!!
      Price was dominant!!

      • blade3colorado said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:21 pm

        I think so AK. Could also be a tie between Pearce and Price.

    Bye Dodgers.

  13. willedav said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:19 pm

    wow what a way to finish them off, nicely done by Sox pitching.
    Made a lot of Dodger hitters looked bad this Series.

  14. xoot said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:20 pm

    Been awhile since dodger stadium hosted such a joyful celebration

    • Macdog said, on October 28, 2018 at 9:01 pm

      Yeah, one year.

  15. Flavor said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:21 pm

    What a great series. It should have been a sweep but this is fine, too. LA was completely embarrassed in this series and that makes this entire season worth it for me.

    • djloo27 said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:22 pm

  16. alleykat69 said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:24 pm

    Boston you just won the World Series where are you going to go?
    Party all night long
    at Disneyland!!

    • blade3colorado said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:27 pm

      I hope they wear their Sox gear. lulz

    Kinsler is a very happy dude.

  18. Macdog said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:25 pm

    Losers Again!

  19. Lurker John said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:27 pm

    Dominant performance. This Red Sox team is going to be scary for awhile. The Giants seem so far away from this level of play. We’ll always have 3 in 5.

    • djloo27 said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:29 pm

      Or 3 in 65, depending on your outlook…

  20. Bozo said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:29 pm

    Does Manny Machado win the MLB Ty Cobb award for spiking the most players?

  21. alleykat69 said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:31 pm

    Price will win MVP I guarantee it!!

  22. gianthead said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:31 pm

    We never had enemy fans in our stadium during the WS at these numbers..I would be embarrassed if I were a Fodger fan…this is another winning season for us Flappers!!!

    • djloo27 said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:38 pm

      I don’t agree, GH. We had a wretched season and the outlook is dismal.
      This is just a temporary relief of the nausea…

      • Lurker John said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:42 pm

        Better than no relief at all!

      • gianthead said, on October 28, 2018 at 9:29 pm

        I am in the camp that a successful season equals Fodger misery…we have 3 WS while they have had 0-30….hoping for 0-60…

    Bosstown.

    Last six outs for the modern-game Dodgers: K-K-K-K-K-K.

  25. blade3colorado said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:35 pm

    Looks like a lot of Dodger fans will be doing this again . . .

    Kershaw is one of the biggest chokers in postseason history. Age and innings have caught up to him. Injuries as well. Analytics are a great tool, if used in moderation. But the team and organization can’t win a championship. They’ve reached the postseason six consecutive seasons and choke every year. They are the Buffalo Bills of baseball. It’s pathetic.

  27. Flavor said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:40 pm

    Pearce. As I guaranteed.

  28. alleykat69 said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:40 pm

    My guarantee is revoked!
    Steve Pearce congratulations!
    You look 👀 more like a trucker then Price anyway!!

  29. Lurker John said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:41 pm

    So much for Price winning MVP! Good for Pearce!

    • blade3colorado said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:42 pm

      Pearce definitely was deserving of the award.

  30. blade3colorado said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:42 pm

    I miss the Chevy guy that presented the award to Madbum. He was hilarious.

  31. xoot said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:42 pm

    I didn’t even notice the mvp award got named for Willie Mays last year. The trophy looks like a backyard statue sort of thing

    • djloo27 said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:47 pm

      It should be named for Reggie Jackson…

  32. Lurker John said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:47 pm

    Now we get to see what the Giants dream up for an off-season. A lot of work to do…

  33. Lurker John said, on October 28, 2018 at 8:48 pm

    Sorry, Blade, had to borrow your pic. I’m friends with a few Dodgers fans on FB and I can’t resist posting it there. That one will go over real well. ROFL!

      The VHS tape? By all means . . .

    I think that Dave, Farhan, and Andrew were saving their collective mental energies for the 12 dimensional tiddlywinks tournament next weekend.

  35. Macdog said, on October 28, 2018 at 9:07 pm

    Today in L.A.:

    Rams win
    Kings win
    Clippers win
    Dodgers . . . didn’t win.

    • blade3colorado said, on October 28, 2018 at 9:14 pm

      I’m curious about what Kershaw decides on free agency. At some point this week, he must decide whether to exercise the opt-out clause in his contract, which is scheduled to pay him $65 million over the next two seasons. I can’t believe how many articles are saying that he will opt out of his contract . . . His mediocre performance in the playoffs tells me that he’s crazy to opt out of that contract. Wait and see . . .

      • Macdog said, on October 28, 2018 at 9:19 pm

        Yeah, it’d be lunacy to not take that money.

      • PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 28, 2018 at 9:20 pm

        Agree that he’d be nuts to opt out, unless he’s looking for more longer term security than 2 years, because 2 years from now, his bad back could prevent him from getting a new contract at that time. Maybe a team that needs more wins in the regular season but feels well-built for the post-season would want him, but certainly not at the price that he’d want. Heck, Giants could use him during the regular season to help get back to the post-season…. just don’t use him in the post-season….

      • djloo27 said, on October 28, 2018 at 9:22 pm

        As long as he takes his Social Security at 62, he’ll be fine…

      • blade3colorado said, on October 28, 2018 at 9:30 pm

        What Paul said makes sense – a longer term contract at a reduced annual salary. However, doesn’t the Player’s Union monitor this shit? I thought there was some rule against a player and club taking a significant pay cut???

  36. zumiee said, on October 28, 2018 at 9:26 pm

  37. PaulinAsia Banh Bao said, on October 28, 2018 at 9:37 pm

    Haha, Loo, yeah, somehow I don’t think Kershaw needs to worry about when to collect Social Security…

  38. djloo27 said, on October 28, 2018 at 9:37 pm

    There is absolutely no chance that he opts out.
    ZERO
