Damn I didn't think they'd played 163 if both teams are in the playoffs already but that's cool.

yeah it's bullshit low key since we played them 19x already lol

We'll see if the road Rockies show up with the Coors hangover

Back to back 163's would be cool, even if they aren't that meaningful.

 

 

I think the 163 the Tigers played in years ago started in the middle of the day and I missed a good chunk of it. Still saw the complete meltdown though. That was my first heartbreaking baseball loss lol

Scioscia stepped down
He clearly still wants to manage. Said so and also said you never know if or when another opportunity will arise.

So why did he step down if hes not ready?

My other question is for @GMF1991

Why did wright only start 1 game and only a couple innings right?

The Twins finished the season with a 6 game winning streak, but more importantly, Joe Mauer was 1/4 with a double and 1 pitch as a catcher.  It was great seeing him in catching gear again.  He has hinted that his career is done, but no one but him is sure.  He will finish as the best catcher that the Twins have ever had, and one of the best ever in the game, offensively at least.  3 batting titles as a catcher, one with a .365 average.  1 MVP, 6 double digit homer seasons (many thought he should have had many more, including me), 3 consecutive gold gloves and 6 all star appearances.  If he is done, he will finish with a .304 average, 428 doubles and 1018 runs scored.

Is he a hall of famer?  That will be up to the writers to decide.  I, frankly, think that had he been able to catch for 15 years, putting up the offensive numbers he did, he would have been, but I don't really think he is.  He will certainly be in the hall of very good, however.

And, by the way, the Twins should be better next season than they were this year.

Why did wright only start 1 game and only a couple innings right?

A) It was a marketing gimmick. Wright did it for the right reasons (wanted a chance to say goodbye to the fans) but the team milked it. Sold out stadium, standing room only spots going for $125 minimum. He had a pinch hit on Friday night. My guess is they wanted to limit his appearances to build anticipation for Saturday night.

B) They wanted to pull him after 2 or 3 at bats so he could spend an inning in the broadcast booth. I didn't like it either. Going up to the booth was unnecessary. But, I can see why they wanted to guarantee a walk-off-the-field moment for him, so idk. I was torn.

Loved it, I got a lil onion eyed, bit yea it was still a little weird.

And the fucking Marlins pitchers were painting the corners in each of his at bats. Groove an 80 mph fastball down the middle like what's his name did for Jeter, ya fuckin twats.

And one more thing about Joe Mauer -- he signed his jersey and gave it to a little fan after the game.  Something that he was really good at.

Also apparently Wright goes through a crazy rehab/prep for when he has to start a game. When he had the pinch hit, I felt like he was in pain walking back to the dugout. So I can see why why wouldn't want him out in the field for 9 innings.

I cant prove it but I dont think he wasnt 100% healthy. Hell, I dont think he was 50%. Any normal player probably wouldn't have gotten the approval from team doctors to go out there in the first place.
