    Mr. Brocktober lead that hospital job yesterday (credit to Jim Rome), and the Yankees stand no chance tonight just because they won't have recovered from the shock.

    I know I’m biased, but most Yankees fans look like asshats.

    Now they look like sad asshats, and that’s fine with me.
    Kimbrel is a sure thing, but that thing is a panic attack.

    Apparently Joe-goddamn-West is the crew chief for the ALCS. Oh joy.

    In other news, at this point I’m hoping for a World Series rematch with the Dodgers winning it this time.

    All season, fans were yelling for Jackie Bradley Jr. to be traded. "Yeah he's a great defensive player, but he's a guaranteed out with men on base!"
    Dude gets an RBI double for the lead in Game 2, cranks a grand slam for the knockout in Game 3. Baseball in October is so fun. Glad the series is guaranteed to go back to Fenway, but I'd feel more comfortable if the Sox can win another one in Houston.

    As a Boston fan, the GS was amazing, but the real treat was watching Ortiz completely lose his shit.

    Angels just opted out of their lease in Anaheim. Vegas bound?

    Why not? You’ll soon have the Raiders and the faggy outfits their fans wear.

    There's speculation about them coming here, but I doubt it. We just built a new AAA stadium and the A's just signed a two year player development deal with the franchise, so I'm pretty sure that would be a deal blocker right there. Don't even get me started on the Raiders.

    Holy fuck that Sox/Astros game was intense. Fuck yeah Sox.

    That interference call is going to be talked about for a while.

    The Angels just finished their 11th year of drawing over 3 million fans with one of the higher ticket prices in MLB. They are not going anywhere. This is just going to be a negotiation ploy.

    Mrs. Verlander chimed in with her opinion and got slammed by twitter users.

    Twitter has become the asshole of the internet.

    This is my opinion - and admittedly, the opinion of a Red Sox fan:
    Postgame analysts were going over it and some guys have the opinion that the only type of fan interference should be the Jeffrey Maier style of hanging your arm over and down in front of the fence. However, Joe West seemed to look at it as the "crossing the plane" style, where anything above the fence and out from it is still interference.
    Watching the video, there is no angle directly down the line of the fence - but the fans are (to me) obviously leaning in toward the field and reaching forward. And at the top of his jump, Mookie still has a good amount of space between his body and the wall - which to me means the fans reached over the plane into the field of play. I think Mookie would have had the ball easily if his glove hadn't been hit by the fan's hand.

    But what this all boils down to is that Joe West will make some other type of ambiguous call tonight that will help the Astros.
    The Joe West giveth, the Joe West taketh away.

    But the Sox needed that win last night, and it was good to see the whole team keep chipping away. It was agonizing to see Kimbrel walking out at the top of the 8th and knowing it was going to be a longer heart attack than usual. But with this win, they can rest easier with Verlander on the mound tonight vs. whoever fills in for Sale (who I'm guessing had food poisoning). So they have Game 6 and 7 at home, with Sale and Eovaldi ready to go.

    My personal take on it (Also a Sox fan) is that it was interference however I don't fault the fans one bit. I fault the astros ownership for placing fans in a no win situation by having those seats in that location where they pretty much have to let the ball hit them or cause a scene like last night. If there was any kind of buffer there this isn't an issue.
    On top of that based on the replays I think Mookie makes that catch 100% if the fans arms aren't there.

    This article from Fangraphs seems to be a pretty unbiased review of everything.
    https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/the-fan-interference-call-was-probably-good/

    Also on the Upton thing... if she didn't have a history of going on Twitter tirades when something doesn't go Verlander's way twitter might not have been so harsh on her. Especially since one of her huge tirades was directed at Porcello a couple years ago.

    Yeah, tell me Machado didn’t intentionally spike Aguilar on the Achilles there.

    All that amazing talent and nobody likes you because you’re a complete faggy-ass BITCH. Go play soccer, asshole.
