WE GET TO PLAY SOME MORE BASEBALL!!!
Great game, they did what they do very well – small ball. Just keep getting folks on base repeatedly and eventually, they’ll come around home.
And Joe Musgrove pitched a fantastic game – and if Buck Showalter thought that accusing him of using stuff for his spin rate having the umps come out and fondle his ears would rattle him – well that sure fucking backfired, cause he was even more laser focused after that very petty move.
It’s a playoff game, he’s amped up, he’s throwing harder, which increases spin rate. Didn’t have to cheat – he was just very good at his job when it counted.
The Mets were a good team and played well. The Padres simply played better.
And we’re off to the NLDS where we’ll finally get a home game!
Now I gotta get this coffee to kick in and go work – you have a great day.
AND GO PADRES!
