    Is Jesse Chavez kinda sorta the Cubs closer right now?

    • andeux andeux Oct 1,2018 11:41 am || Up

      Kind of funny that Hendriks and Chavez (five teams later) both have prominent roles now.

      The Brewers and Rockies are pretty fun.

      I’m not there yet, but I think I could start to resent the Cubs and their fans a little bit if they make a deep run this year.

    There was a bizarre note on that graphic. The Brewers only won 20% of their manager challenges? I assumed they took a use it or lose it approach and challenged everything in the late innings…but no, they only challenged 34 times which was tied for 5th fewest. They won 7 of the 34. The next fewest successful challenges was 13. Melvin was 21 for 42.

    The Friday schedule shows a couple of windows where one game is exclusive for only ~2 hours.

    Using that as a boilerplate, if Monday is a four-game day and the Cubs win tonight, I’d say Red Sox-A’s would go in the 6:37 slot. The alternative would be having the Cubs start at 8:37 local time which wouldn’t be unprecedented but is something that’s more likely avoided. The Cubs aren’t ratings poison like a Rockies-Brewers series would be.

    If the Rockies win tonight, the late game is in Denver at 7:37 local time and Red Sox-A’s gets the 4:32.

    The Brewers and/or Dodgers series ending in a sweep would slot a game in Oakland as the East Coast prime time game, around 5 or 5:30.

      Wait, if the Rockies win tonight, they’re the road team against the Brewers. So the game wouldn’t be in Denver. Or am I misreading that?

    There’s the answer to the schedule question. Red Sox-A’s on Monday is at 4:30, maybe 4, if neither NLDS is a sweep, with MIL @ COL being the later start. If there’s a sweep Red Sox-A’s will be the latest game, probably 5 or 5:30.

    Any FKing plans for watching today’s game at a downtown bar?

    If this is His will, He's a son of a bitch.

      I don’t know, but I’ll stop by for at least part of the game if you guys are meeting somewhere.

          I thought we were talking about “downtown” Berkeley.

            Yeah I know that a couple people from the old Lounge (now FB group Lounge) are going to something called Docs Refresher in Berkeley.

            I will… not be driving that far.

            And I have to say: mikev is one of my favorite people on here -slusser.

            Thanks, and go As.

              Me neither. That’s like halfway across Berkeley.

                Also frighteningly close to this place.

          I have a must win softball game in Oakland. We’re hoping other team doesn’t show.

    1. Hendricks. 2-6: Familia, Trivino, Kelley each get one; Petit, Buchter, Wendelken share the other two based on matchups. 7-9: Treinan. 10-14: Jackson. 15: Rodney. 16-20: Pagan. 21-22: Chapman.

    friend of mine sent group email that may be of interest to you too:

    At last night’s neighborhood association meeting we learned about a new ballpark community meeting that will be held with representatives from the A’s this Sunday from 1 – 3, at 7th West. They’re planning on talking about the Howard Terminal site, so if you wanna support it, boo it, or get more info about it, then come on down. They’re providing “complementary food and refreshments”, so they ask that you RSVP so they can get a handle on how much food and drink to get. [redacted] and I are gonna be there to try and counteract all the goddam NIMBY’s in our neighborhood!

      I woke up at 5 am running through pitching scenarios in my mind.

        Spent last night rehashing about 20 yrs of heartbreak. Hopefully I got it out of my system.

          if messi’s grounder to the far post had rolled left instead of right…

          SIGH.

          I’m trying to be optimistic, but A’s postseason baseball makes my Cal football mode kick in. Expect the worst and occasionally be pleasantly surprised.

    Liverpool’s frenetic attacking prowess last season always seemed (to my eye) to benefit more than most from the bounce of the ball, which they don’t seem to be getting as much this season.

      is there a way to capture that in some sort of data?

      I have $5. No I don\'t.

    Some good photos in this. I especially like the one of Rick Langford (?) trying to escape a band of marauding fans.

    The one with the black jerseys makes me a little ill.

      I’m on the CSNBA pregame for the partisanship.
