    Wait, the team that’s all about “bat flipping fun” doesn’t like it when it happens to them? For shame,

    GOATest pitcher ever vs the GOATest catcher ever. Satch straight up walked the bases loaded because he wanted to face and beat Josh Gibson. What a legend:

    Wow padres walked it off in San Francisco last night?!? Turned the game off in disgust after pomeranz gave up his first runs of the year in the 6th and just woke up to see the score. That’s cool. Yesterday still sucked though with Lamet going down with bicep tightness, although the hope he can still go next week.

    Statcast didn't even register it when it happened. It was like Acuña had statcast questioning itself with the results it was spitting out. Eventually though statcast was like yep that actually happened.

    He can only pitch once in the first series and maybe he doesn't like 8 days rest? He'll go game 2 on normal rest right?

    -edit im an idiot for not realizing they aren't in the playoffs. Shows how much I've followed the regular season.

    I'm guessing that discussion was everyone telling other people to tell Max he can't pitch today and no one wanting to do it.

    we’re fighting for the #2 pick. Fortunately he’s facing DeGrom and has given up two runs, so I feel good about this one being in the bag despite his efforts.

    It feels ridiculous that the Brewers could make the playoffs and would have a roughly 40% chance at beating one of the top seeds.

    why not? id argue the cards don't for not playing a full schedule. the cards might end up playing the missed games so this might be premature.

    Marcell Ozuna is a couple more hits (and some luck) away from the quietest Triple Crown season in MLB history.

    The Brewers are a living breathing example of why the playoffs should not include 16 teams. The fact that they would have a legit chance at beating the Dodgers/Braves in a 3 game series despite being 0-9 in games with a chance to go above.500 is a crime.

    The playoffs and qualification for it this year are completely arbitrary. It’s kinda dumb to argue about who does and doesn’t deserve to get it. Especially w silo’d schedules.

    That said all the NL central teams range from not very good to very bad.
    If the cards get in without having to play the 2 games w Detroit, it won’t matter. It’s not like they could have fallen out of the playoffs by playing those games.

    If they win, they’re the 5 seed. If they lose there’s a bajillion scenarios that puts them anywhere from 5-out

    Essentially all the craziness rests on the cards losing. If they lose then there is a chance they have to make up games if SF wins etc...if SF loses and Cards lose MIL is in

    It may not matter to getting in or not but it matters for seeding if you played those two games and lose both and cinci wins today.

    Now you’re pulling a dbl and shifting goal posts because we are discussing deserving to get in, not seeding.
