Don’t have a show to recommend, but Gone in 60 Seconds seems apt today
The usual suspects because folks just like that it was gone.
hayley is risking it all
it’s insane that flaherty, giolito, and fried were high school teammates
Every team should have bought out a hotel for the season. Hell they could have just given free ads in exchange
Harvard-Westlake is probably the most popular west coast HS among college admissions counselors around the nation. Just an insane launching pad for talented young people
How many Astros’ pitchers came forward and revealed what their hitters were doing? Kelly did exactly what the Houston staff did. Kept his head down, did his thing, and decided not to narc on his teammates and organization. Plus, both scandals were giving hitters the advantage. Pitchers didn’t get any competitive advantage. So JK being on the 2018 Red Sox is irrelevant.
And the blame redirecting reminds me of my two little nephews. When one gets in trouble the first thing they do is point out what the other did too. MLB didn’t take away your WS title. So who cares. The least you can do as a player or fan of that team is deal with some bullshit while the trophy stays undisturbed in your case. Plus, the best way to handle it would be leaning hard into the skid. “Yeah my team got caught. But at least we did it better than all the other cheating teams before us.” That way you can claim two titles for that season. Not like you have to wear 95 to the ribs.
Where is the team vote? I thought that was part of the process
To be fair, JK didn't come forward and reveal what the Red Sox were doing.
Did you read literally the next sentence?
“Kelly did exactly what the Houston staff did. Kept his head down, did his thing, and decided not to narc on his teammates and organization.“
I understand that. Doesn't change that he's not really the guy that should be whining about it. He didn't whine when his teammates did it.
Your missing the point. I was making the case why an Astros fan can’t use the fact that JK was part of the 2018 Red Sox as a defense to those who think it’s unfair JK is being suspended and no Houston hitters were. Whether or not JK is the guy to be whining about it is a different discussion. We’re all just reacting to what happened between JK and Correa.
I know, I couldn’t believe the Mariners scored 8 runs, either
The point is Kelly is no better than anyone on the Houston staff which you just basically said.
On multiple occasions I have said the Astros got caught and deserve whatever punishment they get. Take the World Series trophy, I don’t care because I got to experience what it felt like to win it while beating the Red Sox, yankees and dodgers, all of whom were most likely cheating in some form or fashion as well because well, that’s how baseball works.
For one LA, Boston, or NYC baseball writer or fan to be somewhat introspective on what’s happening with their teams is what I would appreciate.
I don’t think that will be possible until more hard evidence comes out which it eventually will.
did you go there
Only thing to bring up to that is the division/separation of pitchers vs hitters in general. Regardless of team affiliation, just one profession vs another. The pitchers were the ones getting fucked over and having their livelihoods affected. Putting in all the work, study, and body maintenance just to have someone best you while taking a shortcut. I’m sure there were plenty of Astros pitchers that thought it was fucked up but kept their mouths shut. But other than that I’m with ya.
yeah, same year as obscure major leaguers Brennan Boesch and Josh Satin, which was the first year we were really any good at baseball. Also had a pitcher who got drafted out of college and briefly made it to AAA, which was awesome since he topped out at like 89.
damn you and mp_22 both went to duke AND harvard-westlake?
Don’t forget that he’s the biggest and most representative fan of both schools around
Damn Cardinals always find a way to ruin my life and dreams.
gonna need to see a pic of all 3 of you together wearing your "Seniors '87" t-shirts before I believe this
Without pants on.
have a few friends who went there, probably at least 5 years older than you. my kid applied there but will probably end up going to sierra canyon
they a 5* basketball recruit?
haha nah. she plays soccer
lol zoe played on tudela...some middling west la club. Look at me talking shit on girls soccer. My nieces probably know her bc they go to winward
oooo so tough, bobby. everyone knows you mean business now
manfred is taking it super seriously which is why he still hasn’t suspended mattingly for his role in this
these stupid fucks
Amazing how they didn’t mandate compliance officers (or something similar) earlier. Especially with traveling for games.
they should be fining ppl and/or strictly enforcing rule following in dugouts and on the field. And they aren’t.
Also, fuck Miami. Joke organization.
Pillar sucks badly
Judge doesn't. He just smacked a 2-run HR in B3 to put NYY up 2-1 on Boston
sad how bad the mets are
Every Yankees national broadcast just goes on and on about how big they are physically
everyone looks like a giant in a that little league park
JD Davis just K'd looking at 3 pitches. 1 was a strike.
The twins were clearly excited to face someone not named Shane Bieber.
seems all 3 were
56 pitches for Clevinger to get through 2 IP
Dansby drew a walk stop the presses
