    Oops. LOL

    For all yall Astro haters, remember that the Astros have a HORRIBLE record at home this year. I wouldn't put it past the Astros to keep that up. I have no idea about why that is this year, but the Astros can't seem to get their shit together when playing in their own stadium.

    Ah yes, there's that word again. "Haters". :rolleyes:

    I have nothing against the Astros, as such. If they're good, they're good. I just want the Rangers to win the pennant, simply because they've never won the WS before. That's literally the only reason.

    To like [thing] does not always mean to hate [other thing].

    Fuck the Astros because they're cheating fucks, fuck the Rangers because I do not want to see noted domestic abuser Aroldis Chapman get another ring.

    Aw now. There's always professional sports teams to hate. It's easier than hating real people. LOL

    Chapman is not, and AFAIK has never been, a Diamondback.

    Yes, I'm mildly high tonight and I already edited my post. My sentiment towards Chapman stands.

    Bryan Abreu suspended 2 games (and fined) for intentionally plunking Adolis Garcia. Linky

    Edit: But his appeal won't be heard until after today, AFAIK.

    I could die a happy man if I didn't have to hear John Smoltz say, "That's a good pitch," for the hundred thousandth time.

    Edit: Or him calling a pitch that was miles outside of the strike zone a "backdoor slider." I mean, McCarver sucked, Tom Verducci was terrible, but Smoltz is just ... my God. I want to put the radio feed on.

    Adolis Garcia is the man. What a playoffs he has had. Rangers still have a shot.

    That's why I always buy the WS on BluRay (the only discs I still buy :lol: ). Even when you watch the games you can still listen to the radio feeds.

    You can also do that with the AppleTV app but unfortunately in that case the radio feeds are delayed by several seconds so it doesn't work too well. Still, it comes in handy with all those damn "mic'ed up" moments.

    Do you watch a lot of Cubs games? I feel that way about Rick Sutcliffe. Sounds like a complete dipstick.

    Bryan Abreu can serve his two-game suspension.... in 2024.

    Someone tell John Smoltz he was the fourth-best pitcher in that Braves rotation and he needs to sit down and shut the fuck up.
