Just stopping by to say Chapman was trying to decapitate that guy yesterday and as for the quotes after the game the Yankees acting like they’re the ones who were threatened is typical pansy ass cosmopolitan bullshit that is fitting of where they play.

The whining on both sides is a little blah, but there's 0 chance that pitch was intentional. It just doesn't make any sense.

Good grief, even Shemp is hitting game winning home runs against us. The curse of ex-Dodgers will live forever. Fuck our lives.

So much for having 2 days rest. I can already hear Dave Roberts' nonsensical excuses after the game.
"He needed a few days off to rest. Now he needs a few more days to get the rust out. Then, he'll be tired again...."

Fucking nerds. What the fuck is limiting exit velocity good for when you still give up 6 straight fucking hits?

Yeah, I know. It's still of no comfort to me knowing in a best-of-3 playoff round, he has almost no room for error or bad luck if he's incapable of missing bats.

The Dodgers are playing like they don't want the all-important #1 seed in the best-of-3 wildcard round.

So the Twins utility player, nicknamed Tortuga, is a 5’8” 250 pound dude that looks like Moana. He is officially my new favorite player. This fat fuck plays every position. There is a tape of him playing center and snagging what would have been a homerum ball. Love this guy.

Another opponent crying about giving up a home run.

If you don't want someone admiring a home run then throw better pitches.

If you want someone to be "professional" then quit your job playing a game for a living and go find an office job somewhere.

Trust me, it doesn't get any better there, either.

I don't understand the crying... that just makes it worse for the next one.

Only one thing makes a pitcher feel better... buzz their eyeballs and watch them hit the deck. If you hit them... oh well take your suspension like a man.

I don't believe in endangering the health of another human being just because you couldn't throw a good enough pitch to prevent a home run.

I'd rather they cry to the media, tbh. And I've already expressed my opinions on that.

A high hard one is not exactly 'endangering health' any more than throwing it as hard as you can which causes the same endangering every now and then. Helmet/face guards/elbow/wrist/ducking all prevent the worst things in most cases IMO. You have to pitch that way some times so the batter is not quite as comfortable and thinking a little more than on the previous at bat. Well... what I think anyway. If you could throw better pitches to prevent the homer you likely would have thrown it before. There is also the fact that watching one fly out is different than acting like you are the greatest thing ever and being a dick about it. Like sacks or tackles in football... or 7 yd receptions. Personally I always liked to act like I had done whatever before even tho I get fired up as anybody.

I have to disagree.

If every pitcher had pinpoint accuracy then sure, throwing at someone but not actually hitting them would be fine. But all it takes is a slip in control and dude is taking a fastball to the head. And we've already seen that helmets don't exactly save someone from that all the time.

I also take issue with the principle of the matter. The home run happened because the pitcher makes a bad pitch so his response is to throw a fastball at the guy the next time? How about he just throws better pitches next time?

I like a player who responds to failure by doing better the next time, not one that responds by being a baby about it and taking it out on the other team for having the audacity to be good.

Well, I knew you would. I was just stating my position. You hit a home run off me... I get you back. Baby or not.
