I have never seen an extra inning game in person. Dunno if I should feel lucky or unfortunate.

I just googled "bullpen death march" and found two results, and one of them was me in this forum last year.

He's never going to win another MVP again, is he?

Actually his UCL is going to be too tight and he's going to develop freakish power and hit 100 home runs a year.

My group got kicked out of a game in the 14th inning because my cousin's wife was still too loving drunk to walk. She's from Boston and was going crazy when they scored: http://www.baseball-reference.com/b...201408090.shtml

I got to watch the last 3-4 innings from home. I remember hearing the cheers from the parking lot when the Angels tied it up, I thought they had just walked it off.

A friend of mine was at the 18 inning Astros/Braves NLDS marathon. He said by the 15th inning the staff was carrying around huge trashbags full of popcorn to scoop out for people because the concessions had been closed for like an hour and a half

It wouldn't be very good job security for Mr. Met. The Cubs would just overwork him for 3 months and kick him to the curb after a ring. I've heard he always wanted to be the Yankees mascot anyway.

He said the usual douchebag thing, which is "I wish I could tell my side of the story, but I can't." Whenever I hear that now my brain corrects it to "You betcha I fuckin' did it! Booya!"

Pitching with at least a year left on the contract. Unless Tanaka turns it around and the Yankees look like they can really beat the Astros, I don't see the FO moving away from their "We're not selling the farm for rentals" stance.

I'd offer a strangely effective Jason Vargas but I guess he's a free agent next year, for some reason I thought he was signed through 2018. You can have a probably broken Ian Kennedy if you want him.

I assume Duffy is off the table. In the pen Herrera's the type of guy who it might be worth trading a good amount for but someone will surely be more desperate than you guys if the Royals move him.

The Astros most glaring hole right now is probably left handed relief. Probably could use a better #3 starter too unless Peacock has really turned the corner (apparently he was giving away signs when he struggled prior to 2015?)
