I keep saying it but I guess I'll start to follow Oakland more. I was so proud to be a Giants fan when they lost Melky Cabrera to a drug suspension, then released him when his time was up... and still won the World Series. Now any time someone mentions the Giants, it'll be with a Bonds-era tone of disgust. Again.

Cole’s the real deal, 29 years old and probably looking at a $250 mil contract. That pretty well limits who can sign him. Going into the Series he was 19-0 in his last 26 starts, and Houston won 4 of the 7 he took a no decision in. Also threw down 326 K and a 2.50 ERA. I can see why Madbum is in his shadow LOL. FWIW, I’d love Bumgarner on my team... Also would love Jose Abreu at 1B.
 

It'll be interesting. I get that he's got an amazing run going, but my know-zero feeling is that he seems sort of mentally fragile. Would he have the same success somewhere else, or is the Houston club just right for him?

I don't know why but I keep reading websites, wondering if the Giants will make a play for Bumgarner or let him go. His star has lost some luster, and he's very much in the shadow of Gerrit Cole for some reason (I'm still not seeing Cole as the GOAT like the papers are trying to suggest) so maybe no one offers him top-tier money and the Giants are able to compete for him after all. Latest guess I read says he's going to Atlanta. Makes sense. Same article says Yasiel Puig is a good one-year fit for SF. So now I want to see Bumgarner stay a Giant and the Giants to sign Puig... the one guy who could get under Bum's skin and fire shit up... 

Offseason might not have actual baseball games but it's still a little bit fun...

He has a sort of interesting contract... he can get out any time if he wants to, the Sox can cut his salary if he's not healthy. It seems like if you're only great and not GOATrout they're making noises like no one's going to get a massive payday so he's probably smart to stay put.

There's talk of Bumgarner becoming a Twin. Guh.

Ok. This is my first Joe Buck moment.

Springer catches the ball to end the top of the 7th.

Joe Buck: "Springer...sends game 7...into the 7th inning stretch"

 Yup.

I couldn't get past the 5th inning last night. Even though I knew these Nats had no quit in them, down 2-0 did have something to do with my decision to hit the sack.

Anyways, I'm on Roku watching the game starting from the top of the 6th.

If there's one thing that makes me glad besides the fact that my ex-Expos won that game, it's that idiot behind the backstop waving his red flag. I hope he went home and cried in it.

So anyway, this is a pretty amazing game and the Nats are a pretty amazing gang of ball players. There isn’t an ounce of quit in them.
Stros still have their chance to walk away as champs, but the momentum is squarely with the visitors.
Crazy Series. In no 7 game series in any pro sport have the away teams won at least 6 games. 6 outs away from it being all 7.

While I can understand your frustration I have to take issue with this.  Other than start time there should be absolutely no clocks in baseball.
 
 
One minute is plenty of time for a crew to do a review. If they can’t figure shit out in a couple viewings whatever call was made stands. The obvious mistakes get caught on the first viewing, and right major wrongs, which is what replay was intended to do in the first place. Keep in mind we have a bozo who wants games to be shorter, and throws around absolute crap like a pitch clock, which is blasphemous. Untimed replays contribute to longer games and can have undesirable side effects.

And the delay by the umpires on a judgement call for interference that isn’t even reviewable was brutal. I‘ve about had it with reviews, pretty much every SB attempt ends in one, frame by frame under magnification  to determine if a loose glove string possibly grazed a stray hair on the runner’s arm prior to the tip of his oven mitt touching the bag. There needs to be a time limit for the umps and a limited amount of circumstances review is allowed for.
 

I shouted at the TV that they should just start playing because it's not reviewable then it went to review so Justine thinks I know shit about anything now.
