This game is starting on TNT
Sorry Phantom Menace fans
What's with the neon blue stripe on the dbacks unis?
feeling Dodgers in 5. would be fun to see a true NL West rivalry be born in this series
for a rivalry, each team has to have fans. dbacks have very few true fans
I may be the one person who doesn’t mind the dark grey unis for Arizona.
Ooo that's a weird look. Think I like it too.
These ones don't look quite so crawled out of a coal mine-y.
18% gray uniforms:
Wow, Dodgers aren't messing around.
Big Red go BOOM
The Dodgers are razing Arizona
This post season and big home runs early!
Hey, the Red Sox haven't given up 3 runs in the first inning yet this season...
Greinke not getting out of the fourth inning did a lot of bad to the D-Backs,
Why? Walker was always starting this game
It did, but that's sort of the appropriate disadvantage of being in the WC game, I guess.
I thought it was going to be Ray
Yeah, I think Ray definitely would have started this game, he was awesome against LA this year.
Wow, 33 pitches, 4 runs and nobody out.
I miss Eck
Don't get Orsillo'd now, Clayton.
Guess Louvullo is as bad at preparing his starters as Farrell is
48 pitch 1st inning
Kershaw not fazed by sitting for the long inning.
Wow, the DBacks are making the sox look good.
I can never get used to Kershaw’s delivery.
And a meatball pitch.
Edit: actually the pitch wasn’t bad.
I've always been amazed that it's as repeatable as it must be.
I can’t believe Jeff Mathis is still in the MLB. I never thought he was a good catcher when he came up with the Angels so it’s amazing to see him in a playoff game now.
Long way to go but the Dodgers are looking pretty dominant.
"Endeavour to be Adequate"
And the Diamondbacks are imploding. I blame Lovullo.
The best is the enemy of “good enough.” I guess they think he’s been good enough.
I hear Farrell was his mentor. Fake news?
Man, I miss being able to hear Vin Scully.
He had one hell of a run.
Please be next year's Red Sox DH. Please be next year's Red Sox DH.
Kershaw allows 4 solo HR's out of 5 hits allowed in 6.1 IP.
This is a series that is far from over with Robbie Ray and Greinke going in games 2 and 3 for ARI. Ray's three starts in LA this season were all dominant:
6 3 2 1 4 10
6 5 1 1 4 13
7.2 3 0 0 0 14 (Sept. 4)
First year since 1900 that neither Connie Mack was managing nor Vin Scully was announcing.
That pretty much blows my mind.
Find someone who was old in 1900 but still in baseball and you can take this to the beginning of the game in 3 steps.
Mack's first job as a major league manager came late in the 1894 National League season, but he was managing the minor league Milwaukee Brewers from 1897-1900. Harry Wright, manager of the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings, was let go by the Philadelphia Phillies after the 1893 season, so Mack missed managing against him by less than a year. The National League did create a token job of "Chief of Umpires" for Wright for the 1894-95 seasons (he died in October 1895), so he was technically still in the game... not to mention, as a player, Mack played against Wright-managed teams for several years.
Another way to look at it is that in Mack's rookie year as a player (1886), he was a teammate of 43-year-old Joe Start, who began his career in baseball's amateur era, and led the National Association in games played in its inaugural 1871 season. Later on he was a teammate of Deacon White, who also played in the 1871 NA season. The problem with all of this is you'd have to ignore the 1897-1900 seasons that Mack spent managing in the minors.
Hill has a ridiculous reverse split this year:
Well, guess it doesn't matter.
Have the Red Sox even hit the outfield wall on the fly versus Houston? Some of these home runs are just crushed.
That reverse split is crazy. I would love to hear someone explain that, because he surely didn't have one last year. Or in 2007
the no hitter is still alive
