I'm still amazed these guys went through 10 days of Spring Training and then straight to the playoffs.

Wow!!!


Yeah. They come off a long break and are just thrown in to a playoff.

Announcers are asking why Bard was left in so long. Seems like the answer is, DeRosa didn't have anyone warmed up.

Yeah, can't just bring a TV commentator to come manage a baseball team. Doesn't work like that.

Maybe we can still lose and advance due to some tiebreaker rules? Let me check on that....

Alright top of the lineup. We need a rally here.

Betts
Trout
Goldschmidt

That is scary for any pitchers.

Yeah he is. I was surprised he wasn't in this tournament.

Edit: Just googled it and he also has insurance issues.

I'm impressed by our new LF David Peralta. Dude plays good defense and he's had good ABs.

Luis Arraez just hit his 2nd HR of the game.

A reminder that this dude won the batting title last yr and then got traded in the offseason by the Twins:

Quote:
The Minnesota Twins have traded the reigning American League batting champion Luis Arraez to the Maimi Marlins for right-handed starting pitcher Pablo Lopez and two prospects.

The stunning news was confirmed by the Twins, who send their fan favorite infielder to Miami for Lopez, shortstop Jose Salas and a 17-year-old prospect. Salas is rated the No. 93 prospect in all of baseball in the latest Baseball Prospectus rankings. He's 19 years old and was the No. 5 prospect in the Marlins' organization, per MLB Pipeline.

No worries. These are high scoring games with a potent lineup. These last 6 outs will be hard for Venezuela to get.
