Did Chapman not fully warm up again? If so, need to have a legit talk with him about this, absolutely no reason this should still be happening.
This is way past that, I bet his worst velocity ever.

But somehow he got out of it. and DJ gets his first AB of the night this inning. What a wild game!!

DJ and then Didi to lead off this inning, so I am going with walk/walk/3 run HR by Austin Romine.

5.1ip, 4er out of the bullpen.

This was a pretty mismanaged game. German left in too long, Ottavino should have come in last inning, sat DJL but brought him in anyway.

Fuck, I have really early meetings tomorrow but how can you stop watching this one

Also since I am just caught up now, that call on Voit on 3-2 for a walk was bullshit, right on the corner and you can't reward constantly guessing and taking on 3-2. Hicks enjoyed it though.

Yikes, the grounder off the pitcher was at 108 MPH.

What a game for Didi.

That was an unexpected bloop by Romine.

You know, how about we just take a 3 run lead this time? Please?

Vlad Sr. style on that one, can’t believe those both were knocks. Savant claims I sit on a throne of lies, however: xBAs of .920 and .610, respectively.

My cable never crashes, but evidently it couldn't take it after DIdi's 5th hit and just stopped.

So funny if Chapman gets the 'win', it is incredible how often literally the worst pitcher for either team gets the 'win'. German was terrible but at least he got some outs.

This reminds me of the PawSox’ Longest Game in 1981. Luis Aponte came home at 5 a.m. and his wife wouldn’t let him in the house.

Cool, now Adam loses the zone. This just has all the feelings of leaving a hanger over the plate. Come on man!

Longest game notes, from a Dave Borges story, circa 2001.

There was PawSox manager Joe Morgan getting ejected from the game in the 22nd inning and watching the rest of the action from a small hole cut out behind the backstop. There was Morgan’s wife calling the stadium at 3 a.m. and getting her husband on the other end.

"We’re still playing!" Morgan told his irate wife.

"How the hell can you still be playing if you’re answering the phone?" she very wisely retorted.

There was poor Luis Aponte, the PawSox pitcher who got a ride home from teammate Mike Smithson around 5 a.m.. Smithson waited in the car to make sure Aponte got in O.K. and heard a banging on the door, followed by a loud argument in Spanish. A few minutes later, Aponte was back in Smithson’s car, banished from his apartment because his wife thought he was out drinking all night.

Aponte wound up sleeping on the trainer’s table inside the PawSox clubhouse.
