  1. The at-bat before that was a fly ball out that looked a little iffy for the sun before it was caught, but the double was a solid hit to the wall away from the right fielder. The sun had nothing to do with that one.
  2. 45 hits to get in 36 games (if he plays every remaining game). Not great odds.
  3. https://www.usatoday.com/story/sports/mlb/playoffs/2019/10/23/josh-reddick-interference-world-series-astros-nationals/4078048002/ In 2019, catcher's interference was not reviewable. https://www.mlb.com/news/jurickson-profar-catcher-s-interference-vs-dodgers It's apparently reviewable this year.
  4. Anyone listening to the radio just had a mini-heart attack as Dan accidentally said "Cabrera" instead of "Candelario" as the latter was hitting a HR.
  5. Maybe. He got in through the Veteran's Committee, who might tend to care less about that stuff. Certainly less than sportswriters whose jobs depend on public opinion of them.
  6. What happens if they decide they can only play one game tonight? Do they go 9 innings, or stick to the planned 7?
  7. If they don't release him, with the remaining two years of his contract, he ought to make it to both. He's only 109 hits and 9 HRs away; he ought to be able to get that much by accident at this point.
  8. Perhaps he decided it was easier to wear a mask than to worry about being challenged on his vaccination status. Like he didn't really believe that people would yet be OK with him not wearing a mask. Or maybe he thinks people will judge him for not wearing a mask even though it's permissible now. Where I live, the mask mandate was lifted on Friday (at least for vaccinated people; not sure if it's for everybody, though there likely will be no enforcement). Nearly everybody since then that I've seen continues to wear a mask (myself included). It's not because few people are vaccinated; for me, it's because there's no cost or downside to wearing a mask against the cost of a breakthrough infection.
  9. What are the new case numbers like in Chicago vs where he's coming from? He might be more likely to catch it at home than with you. Also, time with you might give you a stronger platform to convince him to get a vaccine (perhaps even getting one while he's there).
  10. I had to think for a minute about how an MLB-defined no-hitter would not end on the last pitch by the winning pitcher. But then I remembered when the Marlins no-hit the Tigers and had to win on a walk-off wild pitch.
  11. To be honest, it sounded like he flubbed it just a bit. It sounded like he said "The 6th man to throw the 8th no-hitter in Tigers history", which is a funky way of describing it (though I know what he meant).
  12. It can matter as far as fatigue and ability to make his pitches.
  13. This will be great if Turnbull finishes it out, but no matter what happens, it will still have the taint of Angel Hernandez on it.
  14. Perhaps, although there wouldn't exactly be any urgency to go now; it isn't going anywhere for years yet. Unless, of course, he thinks he might not be in the job soon, or (more likely) teams are considering making the broadcaster non-travel thing permanent as a cost-saving measure, even post-pandemic.
  15. I would imagine Dan probably has a personal reason for choosing to take himself all the way to Seattle. Maybe one of his kids lives there now? I also wonder if Jim will be back full-time next year, now that he's getting a taste of retirement between the shortened season last year and the days off when Dan travels to away games.
  16. And God said, "This is stupid. Stop playing."
