Tigers stadium?? Edit: I might be thinking of a roof ball
He hit one to Center at Fenway that was more than halfway up the wall…BEHIND the CF bleachers. I think it officially logged like 496, but I call BS.

The algorithm made it so.

Baseball is stupid now. Same shit as the Rays/Dodgers when they pulled Snell. Ignoring the hot hand because the computer says so.
When you put 2 of the first 3 on to start the 6th inning in front of one of the best hitters in baseball with a 1 run lead in an elimination game do you still have "the hot hand"?

When one is a bullshit HBP and the other is a ground ball single? I'm gonna go with 'yes'.

Ken Rosenthal embarrassing himself there. A Houston win validates this team, not that they really needed it.

MLB hacks will trip over themselves rather than admit the reaction to trashcangate was overblown.

Phillies looking like they know that they are done. Would love to see some fight out of them for the next two innings.
They need to keep some energy in reserve to defend themselves and their families against their fans

He threw 2 sinkers that missed up and in on the HBP at bat and then gave up a hard hit single. Even on the out he got in between the baserunners he was missing badly.
