    Game 3

    Wow! 18 innings and over 7 hours. Ted Barrett had a long night. I would be interested to know which "misses" were in the 17th inning vs. say 2nd inning. http://www.brooksbaseball.net/pfxVB/zoneTrack.php?month=10&day=26&year=2018&game=gid_2018_10_26_bosmlb_lanmlb_1%2F&prevGame=gid_2016_10_29_alcmlb_nlcmlb_1%2F&prevDate=1026
  5. Big fan of Ted Barrett. Glad to see he earned a CC slot. This is a really good crew. Culbreth is doing a fine job as is Reynolds. Hopefully the MLB Network produces another "Third Team" special. It's been four years (I think) since the last one.

    New New Balance Shoes?

    I have never had an issue getting NBs in 4E. As many people loved the Reeboks, the biggest gripe I seem to recall is that they were too narrow for folks with wide feet.

    New New Balance Shoes?

    Sounds like the lightest shoe they have ever made.

    New Diamond CP

    Trying to figure out how to remove the padding to wash it. Looks like there is some sort of hook on the inside. I didn't notice a 16 model. Just the 13.5 and it reaches 18 with the abdominal plate. That seems like it would be really uncomfortable for us "girthier" folks.

    Angel having a tough night. BOS @ NYY

    In the interest of being fair, he has been pretty solid behind the dish tonight.

    Wow. Updated in real time and includes the post season. I thought it was just regular season number.

    Pick off attempt

    I apologize. I should have been more clear. Based upon the OP, this is a balk as the pitcher was throwing to first. The pitcher can pick up his non-pivot foot if he is throwing to second or third.

    Pick off attempt

    As soon as he picks up his left (non-pivot) foot, he is committed to completing the pitch. Balk.

    How do you pack you're hard shell CP?

    Pics please.
  19. Tim Timmons took a pitch to the mask in last night's Yankees/Rays game. Ken Singleton and John Flaherty then started discussing Timmons' Force3 mask. They were fascinated that it had springs. Even busted out the telestrator to circle them up. I think Mike Winters was wearing one the night before.

  21. And here I pictured them sitting on small stools, shooting the bull with spray bottles in their hands cleaning shoes.

    Horrible news - @grayhawk

    I am so sorry to hear this. He is such a tremendous contributor to this site and by all accounts an even better person. Wishing him a speedy recovery and strength to his family and friends.
