one more Skank win, or one more Blue Jay win, or one more loss and we’re really eliminated.

Eric, we were eliminated back in May.

Please, Angels were effectively eliminated the day after the trading deadline.

Relax everybody, Keon Wong digging into the batters box.

Why the hell was Wong batting there?

Only he and Suzuki left on the bench. Either Wong or a pitcher? It was Ohtani’s spot in the lineup.

Man on second in extras sucks

I agree it’s stupid, but both teams got it – one scored the other buttercuped on a stupid base running decision.

odd thought. Should Wong not win the game for us here, at least Shohei didn’t get the loss. And if we lose it’s because of Manfred’s f—ing up the game.

And that is where we end.

No, Angels got an unearned run in the bottom of the ninth to tie, playing on house money now.

What was that Mayfield? Not very Captain like baserunning.

I got chills about the Angels’ half of the ninth, but this tenth inning man on second rule is really pissing me off!

No way Pujols digs that out. Walsh’s stretches are such a boost moving forward.

Pujols was gone at the end of the year regardless. It always was Walsh going forward.

We still using Raisel in a non-save situation.

Nice to see Joe learns and adapts

I thought it was just end of game high leverage he thrived on.

That leaves Suzuki or Wong batting third in the 10th? Would really be nice to have a half-way decent bat on the bench, one of these years.

That’s what happens when you have a poor farm system and only 70M in team payroll cap space to work with ( Pujols, Trout, Rendon, Upton= 115M ). 😖

That is a tough call, after the Andrus ‘check’ bunt. Get your head in the game Blue!

Walsh runs the bases like Taylor Ward

I guess that’s better than running like Pujols

I think he might have one more. He might want a shot at 10 wins and 150Ks.
