A lot of talk about Darvish pitch tipping on Mike and Mike just now. Olney said Aaron Boone mentioned it to him as a distinct possibility. Also, Eduardo Perez was apparently swearing up and down that it was happening. Finally, somebody (Greenberg?) said that in the Astros dugout was one of the pre-eminent pitch tipping spotting experts: Alex Cora. Some of the same people thought Darvish looked overly nervous. Who knows.
Edit: the mechanism one of those guys that “saw” the pitch tipping was that Darvish could be seen fidgeting with his fingers in his glove when it was a breaking ball vs. still fingers for a fastball.
Congrats to Houston. A very good & likeable team and an organization that was willing to bite the bullet, endure some awful years to win it all. I probably would have voted Bregman for MVP. Guy just did it all.
