Verlander’s out for the year with an elbow injury.

Edit: Apparently not?

Aww poor @Lawful Metal his cheating bums lose their #1 starter for the season. Couldn’t happen to a better team or bunch of fans.

Verlander and the Astros both say it’s just a forearm strain and he will pitch again soon

Whoops

Some of the stadium sound guys are doing great work pulling up cheering and booing sound clips to go along with stuff in games (booing for pickoffs, cheering for the home team doing something cheer worthy).

 This motherfucking tweet is straight up excellent, even if a marketing team made it happen.

 

I don't have an MLB team - I really want to support them for this excellent display. On the other hand, I went to their online store and their merchandise is the worst I've ever seen from a sporting franchise.

.....Anyone else doing similarly well?

here's a fun thought:   you could theoretically walk the first batter in extra innings, then if the next guy hits into a triple play you've had a 2 batter inning. 😃
 
here's another one:  you could declare an intentional walk for that first batter, then if the next guy hits into a triple play on the first pitch, you'd have had an entire inning with only ONE officially recorded pitch thrown. 🤣

these must be the unlikely pie in the sky best case scenarios that Manfred and his brain squad envisioned when they thought this would IMPROVE PACE OF PLAY~!
 

Honestly, the bigger question there would go to: 

If a team declares an intentional walk for the first batter, then the next guy hits into a triple play on the first pitch to have an entire inning with one recorded pitch thrown, would that turn of events mean that the team doing that followed the "3 batter minimum" rule?

I'm a huge fan of what I believe to be their now former BP caps (https://www.hatland.com/hats/rays-mlb-diamond-era-59fifty-navy-sky-bp-new-era-21518/), and any of the hats from the "Devil Rays" era with the actual animal on them I also like, but again, my taste only. As to other teams espousing the same kind of sentiment, I cannot say.

The inning ending gets you off the hook for the "face three batters" gimmick. If that same pitcher returned for another inning of work, they could not be removed until they had seen three hitters in that inning.

If you think their merch is hard on the eyes, wait till you see their ballpark.

He'd be the first.

 

Someday I'll get tired of "no one goes to watch the Rays" jokes.

Not quite. If the pitcher comes back for another inning, he must face a TOTAL of 3 guys. In this example, 2 more.

So due to all the Marlins testing positive - the team delayed their flight out of Philly till this morning.

Well that rescheduled flight was just cancelled too

Have a feeling the game against Baltimore ain't happening

I always thought people coming in from Florida had to be quarantined for 15 days in the beginning.  Unless they haven't spent any time in Florida training to begin with in the last 2 months
