I'm glad FSN decided to broadcast the Little League World Series Regional action from Cleveland for us

 

I heard Cave's 1st inning blunders and both of those are unacceptable attempts at the Major League Level

 

Then...I watch as Lindor waves to Gomes to signal he'd like a pick...does everything short of yelling "Yan throw it to me on the next pitch" and Garver STILL gets picked

 

With 47 coaches/trainers/injured players/players playing on the bench, i wonder if anyone is watching what's going on...at the VFW level we had two coaches and 14 year old guys on the bench that would have saw that and let Garvsauce know...and he may have been safe with a fundamental dive to the outfield side of the base instead of going in standing

 

Now...LoFo can't catch a throw to 2nd...ugh...might be time to commit to watching Downtown Alley on Netflix

Is Cave having a bad inning or is that my imagination?


Yes.

Though this time i think its Garver's turn...

Nothing wrong with Sano’s throwing arm, that’s for sure.

Maybe this Logan Forsythe fella isn't so bad, huh? Get ready, he's next year's 2B.

Just watch out for the hot dog mascot...last trip to Progressive and the hot dog snuck up on me from behind and grabbed my a$$...can't even watch the mascot races anymore

Per radio guys, Williams Astudillo just pulled off the hidden-ball trick at Rochester.

I'm resigned to hoping if Lindor Steals Garver just throws back to Odorizzi...skip the pump fake and most definitely don't throw through
