I wonder about this type of figure. Doesn't the strike zone have depth so that a curve can seem to be outside but passed through the zone in a way that the umpire picked up but the tracker missed? Doesn't the strike zone change slightly with the batter's stance?

Even when we want them to lose they manage to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat. Can't do anything wrong. {#Frustrated}

I think they went with a "neutral site" plan to minimize plane travel and keep the players in a "bubble" for the duration of the series. Playoffs are the same way. I saw someone lamenting that both Chicago teams could make the Series but there wouldn't be any home games.

Ya gotta hand it to the Olde Towne Team: they did not wait until September to start truly sucking. Now I know how it feels to root for a team that turns into a doormat on Day 1. 

Hopefully Chaim Bloom will get the team turned around pretty soon.

There's a group of Phillies fans that gather outside the stadium to watch the home games through a gate and cheer on the Phillies. They have air horns and a drumline and make a lot of noise. The Yankees complained they were distracting.
They call themselves The Phandemic Krew. they sell t-shirts and other merch to raise money for Phillies Charities. So far, they've raised over $11,000.
Here they are behind the Phillie Fan cut-outs—which is also awesome. I think the entire 1st level and part of the 2nd is full
Management have decided to make a Phandemic Krew Bobblehead in appreciation for all they've done.

In one of those can't-really-compare-different-eras questions, I always wondered how he'd do as a base stealer today. When he was playing, the pitcher was allowed to do a lot more trickery, and I think balks weren't the knee-twitch-squint that they are now. I think he'd do well. And back then, in the NL, stealing wasn't as revered as it came to be during Rickey's tenure, so I think he'd have stolen more in the 80s. 

I was always a Rickey fan, though, so Lou came to be sort of a caricature of "the guy to beat." Hit for average, not just singles. Would have been exciting to see.

Tom Seaver passed away today at 75


I'm a Phillies fan, but on my desk sits the baseball Mr. Seaver threw the pitch before his 1,000th strikeout.  Willie Montanez hit it (foul) to my father, before missing the next one.  

My first and only foul ball at my first baseball game, June 29, 1971.  Who knew it would take 5+ decades to get another (including several seasons of tickets)?  RIP Mr. Seaver.
 
That's sad, what a terrible disease.  He was a great for sure - a class act and a gentleman and beloved in NY and beyond.  I'm glad I got to see him pitch a few times.

“I would have liked to have had the opportunity to pitch an extended period of time with Tom. I give Tom a lot of credit for having an impact on my career. He was the first guy that I was around who was truly focused on his career and had goals and set out to achieve those goals. His work ethic and just being around and observing him had a very positive influence on me.’’ - Nolan Ryan

Was just talking about how I probably passed on the chance to see Tom pitch in Oakland when he was with the White Sox, but I had those Miracle Memories so why do anything that would take away from that?

I have some 1972 Topps cards of his, including the "In Action" card they filled out the end of the series with. I should dig out the cool ones from the one summer I bought baseball cards and frame 'em.
