• Hello Guest. We are upgrading the server's XenForo versions. This has to be done in stages. 1.5.18 ---> 1.5.23 ---> 2.0.0 ---> 2.0.12 ---> 2.1.0. I will likely upgrade each one and leave it for a day or so to see if there's any kinks. When moving from 1.x to 2.x, our add-ons will cease to work. Much of the functionality of said add-ons is now native within XenForo 2.x, so I don't think we'll miss much if anything. IF we are, we can try out new 2.x XF add-ons.

I didn't stay awake for the whole game, and thus missed when the teams each scored their second runs, but did awake on the couch to see Muncy's home run. I was so disoriented that I thought it was late news sports highlights for a minute until I looked and saw it was the 18th inning.

THANK YOU Dermott McHeshi
Watched the replay of the Kinsler throw. Wow. I cannot remember ever seeing a major leaguer botch such a simple play so badly.
huh? Simple play? He slipped before he got the ball, was totally off balance against someone coming fast down the line. That wasn't a simple play.

That said-- he had more time than he thought.

That's the point. He had plenty of time to set and make the throw. That's a routine play for a second basement. Yes, the throw he made was not that simple for the reasons you stated. But he had no reason to make that throw.

This was 4-0 like five outs ago

Just saw that the Dodgers tried to troll the Sox with a damage done thing. Ask Judge and Bergman how that worked out for them

Hint: they never won another game

I'm actually surprised at just how emotionally invested in Los Doyers I've been these last two World Series. I hardly ever watch any baseball games throughout the season.

So hungover. Made the mistake of going out for it like a young buck

Best team I’ve ever seen, although the playoff run was way less dramatic than 04 so I don’t think they’ll get the credit they deserve. I honestly think the AL playoffs, against two 100+ win teams, and losing a combined two games, was one of the most impressive feats I’ve ever seen in sports. Just rolled over the Dodgers too.

Anyways, Sox are the best team this century.
 
Is this the hot stove news thread too?

Saying I’m not a fan of this deal is the understatement of the year
Why?

The Mets get a major upgrade in the pen with Diaz and Cano still has a really good bat. Plus the Mariners seem to be sending 60 million over to the Mets in addition to taking on Bruce and Swarzak

Losing kelenic stings but Dunn is a 23 year old that struggled in AA last season and the Mets seem to be sending Gerson Bautista instead of McNeil which is great for New York.

I think New York came out on top here

Well Seattle retaining almost half of Cano’s Salary seems pretty solid. I don’t know, just felt like there were better uses of financial resources than a 36 year old 2B
