    Props to Ruf....didn't expect him to admit it
    @susanslusser

    Darin Ruf says he didn’t think Flores went. But: Points out that his own check swing call went Giants way at the end of the season, helped them win the division.

    The all-day moaning and groaning about this call in the Bay Area will just sound more sweet after today.

    What! A! Game!

    The opener strategy, as ridiculous as it sounded, ended up as a net positive I think. It got LaStella and Yaz out of the game early.

    Did TT have four of the weakest ABs ever in a playoff game by a reigning batting champion? He needs to fix his postseason psyche. No way is he this bad a hitter, and we're going to need him in the next series.

    Sad to see JT's regression. He took a big step backward last year and I fear we saw another one late this season. He did carry the offense for a while at the beginning of this year which I'm grateful for, but I think he can no longer handle a full season.

    So happy for Bellinger. He needs to build off this. And Kenley - WOW!

    My thought process during CT's ninth inning AB: "We need a sac fly here for an insurance run. Cool, we have the right guy up - he's been hitting deep flies all game." 10 seconds later: "WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?!?!?"

    I absolutely love the way the game ended. The irony... so perfect!

    Scherzer's expressions in on-field post-win celebrations are freakin fantastic!

    He.didnt. Clearly did NOT swing. As bad as Ruf who DID.
    As a baseball fan, it is a shame that the game ended on a bad call..welcome to the modern version of 2021 umpiring competence...many times, a bitter pill to swallow. It hurts.
    Two teams, this even, down to this game, this even, all the way to this point, should end differently.
    But guess what ? Tough titty..no one gave a fuck when we got screwed on Ruf's call earlier in the season.
    Congratulations, all you Donkey Dicks.
    Quite honestly, I thought Max was absolutely showing the effects of two days rest. Velocity and movement down, and hittable as Crawford almost did. Max was a gamble, imo. But paid off, ultimately.
    For me, this was the World Series !
    It's time to walk the dog, and linger outside at tne SF flag flyer's house...

    No Frisco flags in Kentucky... but when LA lost games 1 and 3, three gnat friends of mine ... including my dipshit cousin... texted me with a ton of smack.

    Quiet now, of course. I doubt I'll hear from them again for a spell.

    Say hello to the dog. I imagine the kids will demand we get one here soon enough.

    I saw Padres fans jumping in on the complaining about the call when I woke up this morning and it's one of the saddest things I've ever seen

    Not only did their sack of shit team fall flat on their faces but they bandwagoned a division rival only to watch the Dodgers beat them too.

    Sad existence for them.

    What a stat

    @BeisbolBrenden
    Dodgers have been in 6 winner take all games since 2017. Cody Bellinger has driven in or been the winning run in four of them.

    Welcome Back, Kapler
    Best thing he did was have that 24 yr. old " superkid" on the mound, who had zero experience. Should NOT have been out there...in a million years.
    Who did we have? A HoF, tired, and depleted pitcher on short rest, who was, imo, a big gamble that worked. Luck. But still a HoF pitcher, not a kid who rode the elevator all year. Loved it. Thanks Gabe.
    That being said, if Max starts next game, he gets crushed. Beaten like a drum...and will fuck him up going forward. He's flesh and blood, and 37 years old, at that.
    Velocity down, throwing 87 mph., ball not moving normally.
    We need a split again, THEN the big 3.
    Do it.

    When Wade Jr was up in the ninth and the tying run on, I was about as uncomfortable with a lead as I've ever been. One moment he just missed cranking an inside pitch over the right field wall. Next moment he watches strike 3 land uncontested into Smith's glove. What a huge out.

    That whole AB scared the hell out of me. JT commits an error and then TBS flashes Wade's clutch stats where he's something like 15-29 in the 9th inning which is absolutely insane

    Thank God this pitch was inside
