[Shaikin] Chris Taylor on how he got so good this year: "Stop asking that question, please."

He left the Mariners, that's all there is to it.

It is kind of a rude question. It's basically the same as asking "How did you stop being so shitty this year?"

Clown question bro

Which is also a valid question

placeholder hire

No, Gardenhire.

Any Twins fans already have a photoshop of Gardenhire as a tank commander? Asking for a friend..

This seems like a placeholder hire. The tigers are going to be awful for a few years, so good managers aren't going to want to wait through that. Maybe in 3 years or so, or whenever they're on the upswing, they'll get somebody younger to lead the resurgence.

Damn. I was really hoping it'd be Ausmus

I have no idea why this wasn't held in November. Why were they allowed to interview him on the day of a playoff game?

In all seriousness - how the hell has MLB not told Boston to put a lid on this until after Houston loses or the WS ends? Seems like this would be a major distraction for him, no?

I would be shocked to find out that Dombrowski did not get approval from Luhnow to interview his bench coach

Joe Maddon - "If Granderson hits the next pitch out, y'know, I might come runnin' out of the clubhouse, y'know in my jockstrap."

I just don't want to forget that this is a whole fucking thing between 3 adult men, the youngest of whom is 36-years-old, and yet there's nothing even remotely strange about it.

Everybody thank Granderson for sucking just enough to prevent us all from having to see that.

Why is a manager wearing a jockstrap?

He's never been traded mid-season is his career. He's never been a bench player in his career. Give him a break.

Thanks to the Cubs forcing a Game 5, 10/19/17 will be a rare Sports Eclipse: MLB, NFL, NHL, and NBA all in action on the same day!

Thanks to the Cubs forcing a Game 5, 10/19/17 will be a rare Sports Eclipse: MLB, NFL, NHL, and NBA all in action on the same day!

If the Cubs force a Game 7, there will also be one on 10/22, and Game 5 of the World Series would also be one.

Do I need special glasses for this Sports Eclipse?

Base Ball > Lavar Ball

At least you don’t have to hear them talk about Lavar Ball for 3 hours now

[Highlight] The Cubbies finally win one. Davis induces double play to end the game.

Davis is a damn horse.

scratches head

hmm, I wonder if that had anything to do with the fact that those weren't elimination games.

What’s with dodger fans in every thread talking about “best lineup” and “the b team was out there”. ?

The only difference between this lineup and the facing a RHP from Yesterday was Grandal behind the plate and Grandedson in center?

Swap 2 players and it’s not your best team?

Um the dodgers manager absolutely did lose that game, but it had nothing to do with Jansen. Today's lineup was like B squad spring training caliber.

To be fair,

you have to have an unthinkable amount of self control like Joe Maddon to just get ejected and not arrested for assault on the umpire because what the fuck what was that

No. It’s Granderson

3-1. Exactly where we want them.

[HIGHLIGHT] - FULL SEQUENCE - Joe Maddon gives the umps the business!

[HIGHLIGHT] - FULL SEQUENCE - Joe Maddon gives the umps the business!

Joe shoulda taken all the bases and threw one at each umpire

His unzipped jacket is the perfect label for the whole situation.

"YOU FUCKED UP. THAT'S FUCKED UP."

Couldn't have said it better myself, Joe.

The guy flipping off the umps after the subsequent strikeout was the real winner of that whole sequence

Umpires change Granderson's strikeout to a foul ball

Umpires change Granderson's strikeout to a foul ball

BALL DON’T LIE

These umps are dumb af.

Joe Maddon, in the postgame press conference:

"... the process was horrible. If Granderson hits the next one out, I might come running out of the locker room in my jockstrap."

We have all seen ridiculously more convincing angles on lengthy, official reviews that never got overturned. For the umpires to overturn a foul tip call in a non-reviewable situation is absolutely ridiculous.

This is bullshit. Struck out anyway next pitch. Still bullshit.

Curtis Granderson has earned a Golden Sombrero.

Curtis Granderson has earned a Golden Sombrero.

The Grandyman can't :( Strikeout in the 8th from Wade Davis seals his 4th K of the game.

EDIT: WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON DOUBLE EDIT: AAAAND ITS A 4 STRIKE K

Granderson 0-4 with 5 strikeouts

Granderson coming up to bat with runners on base is like getting a call from your grandma while you're jerking off

They're calling it a foul that is awful

EDIT: He struck out

Foul ball now. Oh my
