    Good 2-1 ballgame, tough loss.

    Bauer deserved better and the fans deserved better than to have to watch the game on you tube. I don't have you tube Tv so I had to watch the game on my laptop. If MLB is going to do this they should make the game also available on the teams TV outlets. END RANT

    I assume you mean a smart tv or a settop box like appletv or Roku? Because you just needed YouTube not YouTube tv.

    uhhh, successful sac bunt? I know you hate 'em, but there are times when they're necessary--very few times, mind you, but times nonetheless

    Hand has been spectacular this season, but an all-star closer can not give up a home run in the 9th inning with a one run lead...he just can't.

    They may be successful, but I’ll argue till I’m dead they are still the wrong play. And I’ll have math and 100+ years of data on my side to back me up.

    Giving the other team a free out is just never going to be the right move. Ever.

    Lol, I see where your passion lies, but I'll take a MLB coaches decision to sac over yours every time. Every. Single. Time.

    Only if they are “new school”. I mean we are talking about guys who are so stubborn they thought the fastest guy had to lead off for 150 years. They hate the new numbers game of baseball, because it shows most of them are idiots in certain respects. Bunting being chief among them.

    I just looked up the Phillies prospects. Gross. Especially if Brohm is off the table as reported.

    11 innings in a row with no runs

    B4 tied

    I'm not a metrics guy, given my general disdain (not every instance) for PFF, but you're 100% correct and I'd consider myself pretty old school.

    Bieber dealing, so far....

    Wed, Jul 24, 2019 8:54 PM

    How can the ball clearly come off the knob of the bat, yet still be a hbp? Fix the rules 

    Wed, Jul 24, 2019 8:59 PM

    Bieber doing really well. Will he go the distance?

    Meanwhile, the offense has now scored 2 runs in the last 18 innings.

    Not many old school left. Even guys if guess old school are huge on the analytics and the new waves of thinking

    Wed, Jul 24, 2019 9:30 PM

    And the Tribe has now scored 3 runs in the last two innings!

    Bieber comes out for the 9th with a 4-0 lead.

    Wow!

    One hit CG shutout.
