Detroit, Mishegas (132-134) 172

Seems like several years ago the A’s swept these guys in Oakland. They’re better now, from what I hear.

            36-hour review of Missoula: This is a really nice college town, and a liberal outpost in a region where those are pretty rare. Nice downtown vibe, middle-aged people wearing tie dye (in Montana!), pretty campus, pedestrian and bike friendly, tons of outdoor opportunities in the immediate vicinity. I would call it a smaller, toned-down Eugene. I think if you were looking for a place in the Rocky Mountain region that would probably be cheaper and with a more rugged, less hipster vibe than some comparable places in Colorado, Missoula would be worth a close look.

            It’s also giving me a place of comparable size to compare and contrast to Bellingham, where I’ll be starting Sunday.

    They’re going to have to get creative to make it through this last stretch. 4/5 of the rotation is now an increasingly ineffective Irvin, tired Kap, Blackburn, and whatever the heck is going with Manaea.

    A fresh arm like Bailey can help and even though Jefferies wasn’t great tonight, they’re going to need to find a way to deploy him effectively. And Bob has got to be smarter about not burning his good relievers when he doesn’t need to. It’d also be great if Puk could be something, but I’m getting pretty tired of watching lefties who can throw hard but have no idea how to pitch.

          Restaurants that have repeatedly shut down, laid off staff, re-opened, struggled to find enough workers, then seen breakthrough infections of vaccinated staff. My sense is that (a few loud idiot proprietors aside) the CA restaurant industry is strongly in favor of vax check requirements.

    Four years after botching World Cup qualification for the first time since 1985, the USA men finally start their campaign for Qatar 2022 tonight. It’s an eight team double round robin final round, which requires cramming 14 games into five international windows between now and March.

    Tonight we’re in San Salvador (7 pm pacific on Paramount+, CBS Sports Network, and Universo). ES should be the weakest of the eight finalists, but playing them at the Estadio Custcatlan is never easy. El Salvador’s new coach is former USA international Hugo Perez, who seems to have them in a good place.

    Sunday we host Canada in Nashville. Canada hasn’t come close to qualifying for the World Cup since being the worst team at Mexico 1986 (3 losses, no goals). They are suddenly pretty good though, led by Bayern Munich’s world class wingback Alphonso Davies.

    Wednesday we travel to San Pedro Sula, Honduras. They aren’t the most talented, but playing them is always an ugly, physical grind, especially at their place. God knows what kind of legs either team will have left by the time that one rolls around.

    The other contenders are Mexico, Costa Rica, Jamaica, and Panama. Top three at the end of all this go through automatically, while fourth place enters a playoff round against someone from Asia, South America, or Oceania. I’d say the USA and Mexico are strong favorites for top two, with the question after that being whether Canada has improved enough to leapfrog Panama (shock qualifiers last time), Costa Rica, and Honduras. Jamaica is also supposedly resurgent, having recruited a bunch of England-born players to their side.

    Should be fun!

    • FreeSeatUpgrade FreeSeatUpgrade Sep 2,2021 4:30 pm || Up

      I’ve been reading some of the previews, consensus seems to be US should easily have the talent to qualify. I will feel a lot better once they win a road match though. I know this is a totally different coach and roster (besides Pulisic), but the 2017 faceplant is fresh in the memory.

      "Kraut will get you through times of no money better than money will get you through times of no kraut."
      • Glorious Mundy Glorious Mundy Sep 2,2021 4:54 pm || Up

        This team has enough talent to not only qualify comfortably, but do some damage once they get there. And other than Pulisic’s covid rehab (he should be ready for Canada, one hopes), they are at full strength. They are, however, very young, with only a handful of them having any experience playing World Cup qualifiers, or any games in Central America or the Caribbean for that matter.

        The good news about that is that almost none of them were involved with the unpleasantness last time around. I think they have the mentality to get the job done with style, but no way to know until they put up a result or two.

          They managed the game ok. Never looked in danger, never let the crowd come into play. Could have snuck a goal at some point to win it but just had no cohesion in attack at all.
