Idle thought unrelated: how do you score a swinging strike three, dropped ball and throw to first?

K, PB 2-3?

Or just K

What if the catcher just tags him in the box?

K2 ?

it's just K 2-3, PBs (and WPs) don't get scored unless a runner reaches/advances

I wouldn't bother scoring it differently if the batter doesn't run. For a 2-3 putout or reaching on a dropped strike, I'd do these, respectively (with PB instead of WP if it's a passed ball)

Oh look, more last minute tinkering with significant impact. First round being 3 straight makes sense, but the DS ought to have 1 off day and the LCS really needs at least 1 off day.

Schedule in more detail, though without off days it's pretty self explanatory. One day off between DS game 5 and CS game 1. Three days off between the WC round 3rd games and the DS, I guess because teams have to travel? Seems weird.

Personally, I think pitchers should gallop around the mound on an imaginary horse if they give a batter a golden sombrero. Or gallop back to the dugout after striking out the side.

Showboat the gently caress out of clowning batters. That way, batters can do it too.

The playoffs haven't really mattered since like 2014, honestly. Every year since has been full of cheaters and other assholes

Arguably a team that survives a 5-game DS without off days and a 7-game CS without off days will have better claim to depth and over all strength than teams who have been able to lean heavily on 2 starters in past postseasons

Yeah, it's a funny thing how the postseason makes starters more valuable than the regular season. When I did my all-time fantasy baseball draft, my team with Barry Bonds and Babe Ruth got swept in the World Series by the team with Sandy Koufax and Clayton Kershaw.

I had 1927 Babe Ruth and his pitching skills were rusty. My rotation had Pedro Martinez, Doc Gooden, Walter Johnson, and Randy Johnson, but somehow they all did worse that World Series than my innings-eater Mamie Johnson.

Thank goodness my baseball team's game was only cancelled due to the massive, out of control wildfires that are blanketing the country with toxic smoke, and not an outbreak of the deadly global pandemic. Was worried there for a moment.

So it turns out that Joe Maddon is actually worth like -20 wins? The Cubs dump him and otherwise do nothing, get better. The Angels get Rendon and Maddon, get worse.

here's a weird baseball thing you've probably never seen: cleveland hits a late home run to tie the game against the cubs, but then blows it

(ok this time it was on two consecutive hit batsmen to get walked off)

Walk off plunk is funny enough but that's great it was two in a row.
