That would have been quite the miracle as the 2016 NLCS was Cubs vs Dodgers.

First I thought you were talking about the 2016 NLDS, and that wasn't right, then I looked at 2017, no again, and finally had to google "Cliff Floyd pinch-hit" before realizing what it was.

They should have fucking let Darren Oliver pinch hit and bunt. Would have had second and third and just one out.

Haunts me to this day.

It definitely takes balls to punch somebody in the face when you're outnumbered.

Really depends. I won’t assume the attacker is necessarily an asshole if the guy said something super worthy of getting punched in the face, even if I don’t condone violence.

my favourite is the guy who comes flying up the stairs after the punch and then immediately puts his hands up and nopes right the fuck back out of there.

So Mike Trout is basically Mickey Mantle right? It’s gonna wind up that he could have been the best but injuries stopped it from happening. If I were the Angels I’d be DHing Trout multiple games per week to save wear on his body. Then again, fuck the Angels.

If I were the Angels I'd try hard to get Mike Trout into the playoffs one of these years.

The strike zone is too big, too many foreign substances allowed to be used by pitchers with no repercussion, and the mound is too high.

You get a no hitter. And you get a no hitter. And you get a no hitter.

Kluber’s was fun though.

Yeah, it does seem like more pitchers these days are frequently going to their cap or their glove in a suspicious way or for what looks like a foreign substance. Or maybe I'm just noticing it more than I did when I was younger.

I don't really give too much of a shit honestly but I have noticed it.

I think I bitched about this in this thread already but like Espn and yahoo and every entity ever needs to stop sending push notifications for no hitters. 10 years ago they were special, when you were lucky to see one every other 200 games per team, not every 20 games.
