    Someone tell me that Gameday's pitch tracking is way off, and it isn't this bad? Please?
    I will one day successfully sneak onto the Sportive Podcast, and have nothing intelligent to say or add to the conversation.

    ...with a chance to add to the total in the 9th against their closer.

    When Suzuki and Herrmann come to the plate down two in the 9th, it's official. You have no bench. One PH and one defensive sub and you're done.

    Winning run at the plate in the bottom of the ninth - probably not what anyone expected after the first inning today.

    Why in the world are we bunting there, down two? Unless I'm misremembering, bunting reduces your chances of scoring more than one run in an inning...

    1. Hermann sucks at hitting.
    2. It allows you to tie the game with one single if he does pull it off. Of course he didn't....

    Goin will no doubt mention this to Gardy, who will call him a stat nerd while giving him a wedgie...

    I'm pretty sure nearly every manager in the game does the same thing in that situation. Down two, 9th inning, zero outs with basically a 9th hitter at the plate. Really a no brainer to be honest.

    Apparently he sucks at bunting just as much, if not more.

    Remember when they could run the bases and bunt? Those were the days.

    Replay is gonna be close. Either way, nice hustle play by the A's that's hard to picture the Twins executing properly.

    I thought Suzuki was out at 3rd base in live play.

    Instant replay sucks. Another Bud Selig idea that screws up the game.
