That would be a fun fact if true. I’m not going to verify the Rays salaries but Altuve made $9.7MM this year. I guess they are pro rating his  signing bonus from 2 years ago.

Kiermaier makes 10 million. Zunino makes 4.5 million. The other guys pay the owner 2 million for the honor of playing, I guess.

You have to pro rate those salaries.

Darling and Frenchy are an interesting combo in the booth.  A guy who went to Yale and a guy who can't spell Yale.

Was thinking the same, but I know how I feel. They're terrible.

I think you're right, but sometimes I dislike something and then later it grows on me.  
There's a Mariner fan joke in this, but I'm too tired to conjure it up.

They remind me of caps you see in tourist shops in old people beach towns.

Nice fucking play, Jose & Yuli. 

They did it again.  Does someone need to hit a trashcan to let Gurriel know that it's coming in low?

As a die hard Red Sox fan, who has no love for anyone in the division, gotta say I love how the Rays are playing.

Furk.  Hoping y'all turn it around and take the flag.  Great to see good baseball flourishing in Texas.  

SIAP:  Wednesday & Thursday first pitch announced both at 7:40p-CDT.

Bold strategy by ole bregs to swing at the first pitch when the pitcher can barely throw a strike.  

You know he’s going to groove one.  Not a bad approach.

I guess. I feel like normal patient Bregman gets walked right there with how wild that pitcher was. I would want to see him prove that he can throw a strike.

You can't just take the fact that Anderson walked two guys as evidence that he's much more likely to walk the next batter or two than what would be normally expected from him, and he's walked 5.2% of the batters he's faced this season.  The odds of them walking twice to tie the game was less then 10%, and that's being generous.  Bregman's lineout on the other hand had over a 40% chance of becoming a hit and tying the game.  

This has been a really weird series.  The Astros have hit the ball about as well as anyone could have expected, and the Astros pitching has been phenomenal.  Yet here we are.

Agree to disagree. You’re not wrong, but he just seemed wild and overwhelmed by the moment. I would’ve forced him to prove that his heart rate slowed down and he could actually throw it over the plate. 
 

Also, sure you guys had some bad babib luck but the game was decided in the first inning by the bad throwing error. You guys win if that play doesn’t happen. But obvious statement is obvious

The error wasn’t bad luck. The homer wasn’t bad luck. It was bad luck though that they managed to hit one of their two homers on one of the maybe one or two occasions in the entire game where they had multiple base runners. Errors suck, but the end result is no different than a base hit or a walk, which the Rays yielded far more of in this game than the Astros. What mattered was the particular sequencing of those events, something neither team has much control over.

In the last game the winning run scored because one grounder was hit so weakly the runner was able to advance to second.

This is baseball so these things happen fairly regularly.
