Quoted from Captainhook:

6 hours 25 minutes later bottom of the 15th longest game in WS history, and still not over what a great game!

postseason extra innings are baseball at its finest.

#252 1 year ago

It’s almost 3:30am. It’s bascially time to make breakfast if this makes it to the 18th inning.

#253 1 year ago

18th inning Larry King looks like it's way past his bedtime.

-1
#254 1 year ago

I can only watch "games in 3" you get the best parts of the game in a half hour but for the most part I can't stand baseball anymore. A bunch of dickheads who point at the sky everytime they get a hit as if their imaginary friend has anything to do with it, then theres Boston and New york with massive payrolls, anyone else sick of those 2 cities? Oh you can throw Chicago in there as well. Enjoy the series

Larry King? Did somebody say "Larry King?"
I thought so.

#256 1 year ago

Anyway...
Great game!
One for the ages.

I was out in the garage shopping out one of my machines watching the game and drinking a few beers. As it went into extra innings I switched to Jack but kept watching as I finished my shop job. Classic how they used Kershaw as a pinch hitter and I had a feeling all along Muncy would be a hero.

It must have been after 4 AM on the east coast. Wouldn't you know I was out taking a leak when Muncie hit that blast to end it.

Hopefully, just like what happened in the series with the Brewers, that long game played right into the Dodgers hands as it looked to wear the other team down especially the pitching, perhaps for tonight's game and tomorrow's as well.

#258 1 year ago

I guarantee you Trevor story would have made that throw from second base game over!

Man, it's a shame the Dodgers couldn't get it done with an enormous payroll like the Red Sox have.... lol...

Congrats to the largest payroll in Baseball, membership definitely has its privileges.

Great season for the Sox... they earned it.

people keep saying "biggest payroll" stuff but stats show only a minor correlation indicating payroll is what wins games or WS.

Numerous people have run the numbers and year to year it accounts for around a poor regression (typically .05 to .1 and you want to be .70 before you can even say that it is a good indicator)

#269 1 year ago

Congrats to the World Champion Red Sox! 119 total wins including playoffs - a helluva season!

Until next year now. Go Cubs in 2019!

#270 1 year ago

Well congrats Red Sox. Big fan all my life growing up in Maine. They had a great team this year. Could be their best team ever. Dodgers were a damn good team also. Big win!

Since 2000, only two WS winners were below the league average in payroll. The other 16 were above the league average. The payroll average overall for the last 18 WS winners is 6th overall.

Does money gaurantee a WS? Nope. Does it improve your odds? I think it does....

Either way, my comment was a joke... no one should feel bad that their 198 million dollar franchise lost to a 230 million dollar franchise.

The only winners here are MLB. These gauranteed contracts are mind numbing.

#272 1 year ago

We have a great team here in Colorado! We can't compete with those big Market huge money teams.

#273 1 year ago

Congrats to the red sox. I really thought LA was going to turn things around after that 18 inning marathon.

Denver has a higher population than Boston. No?

#275 1 year ago

My mistake Denver population is higher than Boston. All these people coming here for the legal weed we don't want anymore stay away.

#276 1 year ago

Couldn't have ended any better than with a Machado strikeout! haha. He's a dick. So glad he's out of Baltimore. No hustle and cocky.

Guys like that are a poison and will fester.
Only a matter of time.
Dodgers would do well to say "adios muchacho!"

The Boston metropolitan area is considerably larger than the Denver metro area though (4.8 Mil vs 2.9 Mil).

#279 1 year ago

Congrats to the Red Sox..their best players were a lot better then the dodgers best players. Kershaw was mediocre at best again, and Roberts with a bunch of questionable calls..it’ll be interesting to see what changes in LA..Machado will be gone, as Segar will be healthy..Dozier was disappointing, as was a lot of player in the finals..
