I'd donate $100 at least plus some run scored to RAINN or wherever else if it happened.

If you hear random pockets of booing for seemingly no reason, it's because all the Cubs fans here are starting chants and the boos are an attempt to drown them out

Also Bauer sure made that inning drone on and on :v:

How many times will Joe Buck say "fits"? So far we have the pitchers curve ball and high pitches to Zobrist.

I hate Joe Buck.

Every hit or fly out he calls it like it's a homerun off the bat. I can't tell if he's just that bad at reading the ball or he's actually monotone.

As someone who's been to a couple of World Series games, it's about the coolest thing I've ever attended. It's the same product on the field, but there's an aura oozing about it that I can't describe.

He's just monotone. I bet he would sound the exact same if he was talking dirty to someone.

Jake looking good so far.

Also when it comes to strike zones - please remember that FOX has terrible camera angles no one else uses ever because they are poo poo.

Check the pitch FX if you are that concerned.

If you want a good look at why Arrieta has struggled this season, here it is. His mechanics are complicated as gently caress and he keeps losing them in the middle of the game and can't easily get back into them.

Its pretty much one of my life's dreams to attend a WS game, even if it's in standing room only. I'll have to settle for going to the watch party in Progressive Field on Saturday instead.
