Attended 1976 World Series in my Mother's Womb. Attended 1990 World Series Game 2 as a 13 year old. Want to take my son to a a World Series Game in Cincinnati in my lifetime.
Phillips and Ludwick were really pressing last inning, swinging at awful pitches. These guys just need to take a deep breath.
Don't get me wrong, I'm very "old school" and I love the sound of a ball hitting a wooden bat...but there are days I think we'd be better served just switching to aluminum. Not to mention this crazy hesitation by stadiums to not extend the netting to well beyond the dugouts. Unfortunately it's going to take some horrific event to change things.
Pitching and defense...anything else is gravy. Mmmm...gravy.
Pirates trail by three in the ninth, but Mr. Axford is doing his thing. Walked two in the inning, Pirates with a threat.
Meanwhile, Simon is lousing up this inning. I guess you don't want to waste more pitching so he stays in, but he's not really helping things.
Anoher wild pitch. 4 for the game and 3 of them from Simon
What does "setting tones" mean?
Honestly, tones don't win baseball games. Tomorrow the score will start out 0-0. That is a fact.

I think I just broke my pinky toe on the corner of my in-table. And my brother just unleashed an epically disastrous fart. This night is unraveling quickly.
