He hadn't completely jobbed the Astros since... the previous plate appearance.

Not defending him — he's been terrible — but I'm not sure there's a slant to it.
He has been overcalling strikes all night and suddenly misses one well over the plate out of fucking nowhere.

anyway ... if Pivetta could have stolen the sixth inning, we might not be here ... Taylor could face the Brantley-Bregman-Alvarez lane now, or in the 8th before ...

Imagine if humans just decided that even though we have the technology to make ice, we should keep making our fattest fucks lug bricks of it from the pond in the dead of winter just because the fat fuck iceluggers have a good union and it seems quaint.
Isn’t that the beginning of Frozen?

Sawamura in game 1 in a 1 run game and now Perez here, Does Cora know how to manage from behind in the postseason?

Just what everybody tuned in to see - fucking ump
the guy standing directly behind the plate can't see if the ball crosses the plate..it's ridiculous. I've said it before, when the ump sets up looking directly over the inside corner, they always seem to miss the outside corner.

Welp this loss will be brutal. Houston got to kinda reset their bullpen as weird as that sounds and Boston used its aside from Houck and Sale won’t last 2 innings tomorrow I doubt so he’ll be used up for a game 6. Worst-case scenario basically.
