    chris heisey a couple of days ago on the dodger's roster use:
    • “They’re doing it within the rules. It just so happens that players have to deal with it. They’re just manipulating the roster like they’re allowed to. On the personal side, they may not realize the toll it may take on a player’s confidence when he’s going up and down, taken off the roster, put back on the roster, in my case released and signed back. It was a crazy year. I made some good friends there, so it wasn’t all bad. But it was tough.”
    one question chris
    what's tougher...
    - going back and forth last year
    - or going home this year while your former teammates celebrate on your [now] home field?
    you don't have to answer right away
    take your time... you've got all winter to think about it

    Still in complete disbelief that Chris Heisey hit a two-run homerun off of us in an elimination game... and we still won.

    As insignificant as his AB would have been.

    Pretty sure Ellis in the postseason would put Grandal to shame.

    Charlie's tag on Murphy in game one keeps him on my roster. Fucker needs to learn to bunt though.

    What a fucking roller coaster. Not much for alcohol, or anything much else nowadays. But I'm going to have a few beers and dust off the old bong. Gonna be impossible to beat the final strikeout buzz, but a man can try.

    I worked until the 8th inning, and was checking my phone every half hour or so for an update. Got home and made a deal with myself to watch it to the end, win or lose. I was close to just turning off and checking the score later, but so glad I seen that shit live. Kershaw walking to the bullpen, this will only be topped if with a WS win.

    Dunno which one of those retards (sorry Champ) called it, but "and he's got his spikes on" was a classy call. About the only positive piece of commentating the whole series.

    Totally late to the forum party, but I was on pins and needles last night. That easily was the most intense Dodger game I've seen in awhile.

    Also, how nuts is Dave Roberts? Even if it backfired I salute the fuck out of him. To put Kenley and CK for the last three innings takes balls. Someone mentioned that it was like Orel coming out of the pen to close and I thought the same.

    On a side note, "knowitall" Reynolds was so obnoxious. Criticizing moves, criticizing umpires etc. I get that he is a color guy... but honestly, the "why are you doing that"? "Wow, I wouldn't of done that" calls were over the top. For example, Chris Collinsworth does color without giving his opinion on calls and strategy allthefuckingtime. He's there to explain what is happening. I might be off base, but Harold is now up there with Tim McCarver, and that's saying something.

    He used to never make calls like that. I don't know what's happened. I came close to muting the sound but I didn't want to lose the crowd noise.

    I'm with y'all on the FS1 announcers ... I guess Verducci bugs me the least. I'll take Steiner drunk & tedious on his worst day over any of them on their best ...

    But as I listened to Dan Patrick this morning, as he addressed the Urias pickoff on Harper last night, it hit me; Yes, it was a balk, but Roberts kept Urias under wraps until last night, so those umps likely didn't know what to look for in the kid's move to 1B...

    Shit, umps miss stuff all the time, but a balky move by a rookie pitcher they've likely never seen before, in an elimination game like that ... I can see an ump NOT catch that discrepancy. Balls and strikes, I demand perfection of umps on that aspect, but balks? That's not only harder to discern, it's not a reviewable call as yet. Yet ...

    In this Cubs series, you can bet your bippy that Maddon won't let that go unnoticed though. Every umpire will scrutinize the hell out of every move that kid makes, because Maddon will be all over them from game 1 on.

    Yeah...Dusty wisdom.
    Thanks for putting Kelly in against JT, Dusty...if you did your homework, you'd know that he's got reverse splits this season, and the book was not the thing to go by then...y'know...like feeling the results of it when you watch the ball sail over Trea's head out there in CF.
    The grit they are showing just might overcome any of your predictions...yeah.
    I don't know how or what they are gonna do...but Doc will come up with something...something.
    You watch, Jonny B.

    Yeah...pointing it out last night in an elimination game will probably result in a balk call, but it is what it is.
    Now, all you hear about the pick is that it was a missed balk...
    That's OK...we'll see what happens...

    Very fortunate to have made it through this series without injury as well considering all the HBP on JT and others.
    A record amount of HBP, fuck.

    Sometimes, with chaos and action all over the place, a simple quiet image captures all the emotion of the results...like YA Tittle, years ago on his kness, with blood cascading down his head after a futile attempt to avoid a loss. ( I know, way before your time).
    But Clayton Kershaw, walking alone, with his glove, to the bullpen, was a silent portend of the gritty victory. Pure Pulitzer.
    That image, in my mind anyway, is what I will remember most...

    For once a random white guy doesn't kill us.

    I wish someone would get a statement from Vinny on this...maybe forthcoming.

    No intent or head hunting. Just good baseball by both teams.
