Supply shortage


Supply shortage

Looks like the Astro's are going to the series , i hope everyone is stocked up on cheese and crackers because the "whine " party is about to begin lol !!! As a Mariner fan I am as sick of them as everyone else, they are the present day equivalent of the Yankees. However ,I do root for Dusty , but how will he lose it this time ?

Re: Supply shortage

If its against the Dodgers I am rooting for H-Town.
Hope the Braves pull it off tonight. Scherzer out with "arm fatigue". Dodgers have really not been smart in the use of their starters.
Tonights the Braves chance.

Re: Re: Supply shortage

Dodgers have 2 choices tonight, "Cat Man" Gonselin or Bueller on 3 days rest. I would bet on Roberts rolling the dice with Gonselin and saving Walker for a potential game 7. Also has Price available......

Re: Supply shortage

It blows me away watching all the teams this post season pulling pitchers after a few innings or using relievers to start. You made the playoffs yet now you are acting like its spring training. If you need rest there is a thing called the off season. I do know one thing , I'm rooting for whoever plays the Astro's.

Re: Re: Supply shortage

this years Alcs was one of the rare occasions that a yankee fan roots for the red sox to win

Re: Supply shortage

David Price available......just sayin'.

Re: Re: Supply shortage

Just announced. Buehler on short rest. Supposed to be his day off. See what I did there. lol.

Re: Supply shortage

Actually rooting for the Astros. They didn’t win the WS because they cheated. They won because they were and are a great team. I’m a Mets fan, but I’d like to see the Astros silence their critics this year .

Re: Re: Supply shortage

nobody hits a chapman fastball like that without knowing beforehand what it is

Re: Supply shortage

Mariners fan here , they kicked our ass all year long , we missed the playoffs by a couple of games because of them , their offense is amazing and they have enough pitching to win it all. Jose Altuve is a hall of famer , I know people wont like that but it's true

Re: Supply shortage

Altuve hit a SLIDER off Chapman, not a fastball. Whether he knew it was coming or not I wouldnt know, but tons of people hit HR off Chapman.

Re: Re: Supply shortage

Furthermore, strong evidence suggests that Altuve did not use the trash can scheme.

Re: Supply shortage

Sure, as we rewrite baseball history here we find all the Astros suddenly innocent !! Give me a f*cking break.

Re: Re: Supply shortage

What about Altuve running around the bases saying “don’t takeoff my shirt don’t takeoff my shirt” and said that he had a bad tattoo he didn’t want anybody to see and then next year or the year after he hit a home run they takeoff his shirt and what??? no tattoo there! It’s because he had the buzzer thing on.

Re: Re: Supply shortage

Literally no one in this thread has found "all the Astros suddenly innocent." The closest was stevenray suggesting that they won because they were a good team, not because they cheated, but he doesn't say that they didn't cheat.

MLB found no evidence of any buzzer, even though they exposed the Astros for 2017. Although the punishment did not match the crime, MLB has not shown any propensity to hide further scandals, even though they would have more of an incentive to do so for 2017 than 2019 (because the Astros actually won). Jose Altuve had a tattoo in 2019...not really sure where you are getting that he has no tattoo.

Re: Supply shortage

in fairness no one has ever been found innocent after being Charged- they CAN get found Not Guilty - Big difference

the 1st means you didn't do it

the 2nd means - we can't PROVE you did it

Re: Re: Supply shortage

Yes, although that's a technical question about standards that you need to believe, and when combined with critical thinking, the other pro-buzzer arguments fall by the wayside. In a similar "no evidence" fashion, there was no evidence found that any of the other 29 MLB teams used buzzers.
