But how do you pronounce gif? Because if you pronounce it like the peanut butter brand you're not better than anybody and we cannot be internet friends.

I will give a different view, the IGT are downright toxic and make me not want to visit the site. If they were just negative or it was a clear case of just disagreeing it would be one thing, but it is a constant senseless series of complaints with no validity to them and it is just awful. I've left the site once because of how bad it became and I think I will probably leave it again because of it. ******** about every single play just gets old especially when baseball is so random over one game and so few of the complaints are actually grounded in any sort of fact.

I'd say on average 90% of the complaints in the IGT are just utter meaningless nonsense, that number is just way too high. At this point I've blocked double digit posters because I feel they bring nothing valid to the site and that probably just suggests this site is no longer worth visiting for intelligent baseball discussion. It has become the jsonline game thread which was just unbearably bad.


Thing is you also take dumps on people who are trying to be postive. Sometimes its ok for someonle to get exited about a small sample. Really, it's not hurting anything. I appreciate your contributions but you can be really sanctimonious at times.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

*ahem* Quite the extra inning WORLD SERIES game we've got going here! Can we get back on topic and discuss the merits and annoyances of IGTs somewhere else? (yes, I realize that, I guess, this IS an IGT. . . . )

Ian Kinsler is a dope and Puig is acting like he just hit a walk-off homer because a run scored on an error.

The World Series just got 1,000,000 times more interesting. Cora was all in to win tonight and niw they've run out of pitching for this game and the game later today.

Anybody else up watching this? I don’t care a tinker’s cuss about who wins this game or series but it’s been fun watching the extra
Inning drama. It’s midnight here as they start the 17th inning!!!
Eovaldi has pitched 6 innings of relief!! Wow!

Yeah, I'm still up here. I have no idea how long this can keep going for. Quite the game though. I dread that Manfred will overreact to a World Series game ending in the wee hours of the morning and implement some crazy extra inning rule.

Yeah, or expand the rosters because a position-player ends up having to
pitch.

So much for that. This thing is going to go all night, or until atleast someone musters up the energy to jack one out.

Its kind of nice I can watch this as a fan of neither team and just enjoy it. I cant even imagine how my heart would be able to handle 18 innings of a Brewers World Series game. Though I guess I would have liked to found out.

If MLB is going to commit to this low offense, high strikeout style of game, they HAVE to institute a pitch clock. With the amount of runs scored this game should have taken 4-5 hours at most.

I could be wrong, but my understanding was that the objection to the pitch clock was coming from the player's union. The league proper is all for it, to the point of wanting to institute it over the players' objections. At least IIRC.

This is the exact type of game that will have MLB taking a serious look at time limits,or starting extras with a runner on 2nd or something silly like that.

Also,I think the Red Sox win this game if Kinsler holds position at 3rd

The more I see in this series, the more beatable the Red Sox appear to be. This actually makes me feel worse that the Brewers didn’t make it. I thought the Red Sox would dominate either the Dodgers or the Brewers so I took solace that the Brewers couldn’t have beaten them. Now, I don’t know.

Puig and Machado powering a lot of the Dodgers offense...we could have had both. Maybe they don’t fit in our clubhouse (especially Puig), but I think that is a little overblown to some extent. Interesting to wonder if Machado might have actually been the missing link. Would never have guessed at the deadline, but a major RH hitter killed us when we needed it most.

Of course Arcia was pretty good in the postseason, but I’d bet my life Arcia would have gotten work in at 2B after such a trade. With the pathetic play at 2B by our RH hitters he probably would have started anyway. Would have been some nice defense up the middle.

Just some “what if” things to wonder about. Not saying it would have ended better or even the same...just a situation that easily could have happened.
