Oh I don't care at all no matter what the score is. It just doesn't make sense why this blew up over this particular home run. Who do the Padres have in the bullpen, Pedro and Walter Johnson?

Book it that you'll see the same manager start warming his closer up with a 5 or 6 run lead someday soon.

The Padres manager even said she shouldn't have been swinging. But If he grounds into a DP, the pitcher gets lauded for "working out of a jam to keep it close" or some stupid shit

Anyone with a problem with Tatis swinging on 3-0 can eat a bag of dicks.
I bet you change your mind when I bench you for a week for doing it in OOTP.

Pedro Johnson? Was he any good?
And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

Yeah, and try to avoid giving outkick.com any clicks if possible.

ETA: I had to see it, so I'll save y'all the trouble, but what the fuck does this mean exactly?
Let’s cut the $hit

Asking the average American to wake up, go directly to work, then drive (without detour) home… would be lunacy. That has suddenly become the criteria for our professional athletes who have astronomically more options than us? It is unfortunate for Clevinger and Plesac, but their teammates did expect them to live that lifestyle.
Italics mine. Why is this lunacy exactly during a pandemic? Fuck these assholes.

If the game is truly over to the point of one team having to not try due to unwritten rules, they should end the game at that point.

I needed an Amir Garrett jersey just off of his one man charge of the Piartes dugout last year - and now this just makes it more urgent:

Garrett seems to be a man of conviction for sure.

I was probably on the “eh he isn’t great but he’s a legacy” side of the argument for thom before but yeah. This is untenable.
