In progress. Keuchel in trouble.
Bases loaded in the top of the first, now two outs.
Now 3-0. I don't like the Astros odds overall.
They might have to have Verlander pitch both game six and seven.
And now Kershaw!
Its going to be an amazing 9-0 comeback win for the Astros.
Well that was unexpected.
I like that you tempered all those exclamation points with a nice bit of Minnesota understatement.
I told my wife he was going to hit a bomb to tie it up. Of course, she is not a citizen, so she cannot back me up. However, 5 minutes after I told her I was rooting for Houston, she has become their biggest fan. So cute!
More fuel for how can Kershaw be good if he can't a Koufax in the playoffs people
Feels like for every Peacock-level outing from the Stros bullpen, there's at least a couple McHugh's waiting to happen.
Back-to-back great ab's to show CK the door. Jose makes 'em worthwhile?
What a bananas series.
I spooky'd the altuve home run. What a nutty game.
this game is crazy town banana pants
Man oh man. Hammer and tongs out there.
On the downside, it's ten o'clock.
I'm pretty sure the execs at T-mobile are asking if there is any chance they can back out of the 20k per HR pledge.
I'm shorting T-mobile stock, that's for sure.
I like Hinch, I do, but how much (McHugh) fire is he going to play with here?
Fucking Mark Kotsay
I'm missing something here ...
Oy vey ... your memory should be used for more pleasant things.
Too bad Torii didn't do that after his Kotsay moment
More of those"!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
This is fun baseball.
Did that ball explode when it landed?
Liriano for the save?
How are the Astros going to get 6 outs?
This postseason? Probably by using 4 different starters.
Morrow's current status
HOLY CHEESE AND RICE!!!!
cheapo home run lol
Just think less than 20 minutes ago the Dodgers were playing for one run. #neverbunt
Well, this is worth staying up for.
I'm with you there.
I still think he got to first base faster than Tom Lawless
Anderson should have had a triple if he didnt try to pull a Tom Lawless.
Haha, start running, you dope.
Is Billy Wagner available?
I think he already came into this game and gave up two home runs.
Pujols's homer still hasn't landed
....man. baseball, eh fellas?
Still have a hard time getting past the "McCann as the [Yankme] enforcer of the unwritten rules" though.
I don't know if I can take extra innings. At some point, I need to get some sleep.
You can sleep next week. You know, when Dodgers relievers can rest their arms.
It was either going to be a normal cocktail with a bit left on the bottle, or a /interrupted by a Puig chip-shot bomb: wow. Watching reply ... /
dude in the stands yanked the ball outta that lady's hand and threw it back ... what an asshole.
... so my drink ended up heavy on the bourbon.
The full story.
Conclusion: Everyone is an idiot.
(Also: mmm, Eagle Rare.)
Yea. I don't care that he's her brother-in-law. It wasn't his to throw back and he looked like a dick on national TV.
Totally agree. And I'll qualify my "everyone's an idiot" statement by saying she's only an idiot if she was actually planning on throwing it back as well.
There's a lot of pressure in those situations. The only HR ball I ever caught was hit by the visiting team.
Thankfully, it was in Baltimore and I was wearing my Twins jersey, so no one really expected me to toss it back.
The dude was all "you HAVE to throw it back" like doing so would affect the outcome of the game. Dude, get a grip.
Might be hard for him to do that, what with the different texture of the leather on World Series balls.
The vehemence on the thrower’s face is a bit unsettling.
That struck me as well on the first viewing. He was downright rabid.
Unbelievable. My goodness.
i hate sleep anyway
I'm helping Philosofette grade papers. I guess it's a good thing she has so many for me to go over?
I'm thankful that I'm just watching/shadowing a hearing the next 3 days, so my only requirement is to basically stay awake.
You and the judge.
Why you gotta be bringing up Dem Yanks!?!
I one of three true outcomes-ed into that one, didn't I?
To quote a guy I know... "/waggles eyebrows/"
Heh, my colleague handling the hearing was at the Arcade Fire show last night.
I went to bed, and woke up just now....
This is insane. Astros didn't make an adjustment that inning. Dodgers were sitting on changeups. All 3 hits were on changeups on the corner. Great hitting but bad pitch selection by Astros. Taylor took a fastball for a strike ahead in the count and then singled on a borderline changeup to tie it.
Jansen is the best reliever in this series, but he's been far from dominant.
Remember, Gurriel was suspended 5 games at the start of next season.
Fox apparently has run out of commercials
Joe Buck has been using recycled material for more than a decade.
Well, you know, recycled career, recycled material, etc., etc...
No complaints here.
edit: 'cept whut Phil said, of course.
Bellinger took the drama out of that swing with his reaction.
Ethier went into second like he thought there was just 1 out. Would someone actually lose track of outs in extra innings of a World Series game?
Bellinger's was a quick out.
For Dodgers to win, they'll have to use someone else to close or ask Jansen to pitch a third inning. I'm guessing the latter if the Dodgers take the lead in the 11th. Of course, have to get there first.
I recorded five freaking hours. It ran out with Chris Taylor up in the ninth. Now I am watching live in the 12th. Unbefreakinglievable.
Err. 10th. Just seems like 12th.
Taylor singled up the middle to tie it with 2 strikes. That's all you've missed.
Of course he did. I knew as soon as the recording ended that I would miss dramatics.
I know it's been said, but this game is crazy pants.
Has F-bomb pitched?
Nope, he and Giles (the closer they refuse to use) are the only people left
How crazy would it be for Giles to come in and get the win?
Hey, at least he won't close.
That's a nightmare for a manager, your catcher getting hit on a hand in extra innings of a postseason game.
When I fell asleep the first time blue was willing to call almost anything a strike. Now it seems that he's tightened the strike zone.
30+ pitches for Jansen. Will he be worth anything Tuesday?
Yup, $10.8M (and another $67M+ on the books).
Yea, yea, yea.
All three OFers at the track. That was crazy.
If this goes to the 11th, former Twin Juan Centeno will be catching. And he might be catching Liriano at some point.
sweet god in heaven, it' over.
That game will have taken a lot of juice out of everyone.
You think Houston does that thing where on Sundays, after the game, kids can run the bases?
It looked like a bunch of kids running on the field at the end of the game.
A 2-out hbp with no one on base leads to a loss for the Dodgers with Jansen pitching. Dodgers have lost 2 games in this series when they gave leads to both Kershaw and Jansen, and in this game Kershaw had a 4-run lead and Jansen came into a tie game and gave up a run. Those were supposed to be the Dodgers' 2 biggest ace cards. Now they face Verlander in an elimination game on Halloween.
Maybe they'll get lucky and it'll just be Rick Reed dressed up in a Verlander costume?
The Astros really need to win it tomorrow behind Verlander. And yet, I see this series going 7 with the Astros winning behind McCullers starting and Keuchel pitching the rest of the way for the save.
I wish I was capable of staying up past ten.
Try being an hour ahead! Even staying up until 11 doesn't help when the game lasts until 1 a.m.
That's definitely one more reason I will never move to the eastern time zone. Mydwest for lyfe.
