Guys, steel balls isn't strong enough to describe Finnegan, I'm thinking giant diamond balls is more appropriate

Can we stop talking about rough ridin' Nix and Kratz.  There's a damn baseball game on with real players playing.

Nix and Kratz, Nix'n Kratz, Nixon Cats

I think we're set up pretty well to play "National League baseball". Billy, Willingham, Aoki, and Kratz are all pretty decent pinch hit options plus we still have Gore's speed and Nix ( :Yuck:) if we need a sub on the infield.

If we need more than that it's either a really long extra inning game where both teams are throwing everything they have onto the field, or both pitching staffs have imploded and the score is something in the 18-16 range



Yeah, I think people are forgetting about the NL. I'm assuming the mention of Kratz likely batting implied batting for a pitcher with a new pitcher replacement the next inning.
Don't think we'd risk subbing in our backup catcher who hasn't hit in a month like that. What happens if Salvy gets hurt?

That's why I agree he's probably pretty low in the PH order, probably only ahead of Gore and Nix.

I would've liked to see Colon on the bench.  Also, it looks like the Giants are playing sans shortstop so that should help us.

I would too, still don't really understand Nix over Colon. The only thing I can figure out is if there's an in game injury Ned likes Nix and his ability to play both infield and outfield.

I really don't think its arguable that baseball has fallen nationally. It's probably the 4th or 5th most popular sport option depending on the market. The NFL, college football, college basketball, and sometimes the NBA rank higher. That doesn't mean baseball is in trouble, it just means it's not the top dog it was 10-20 years ago.

Also, anytime it's a series for the championship it's not going to be great numbers anymore. Games 1-3 of a seven game series have little intrigue to the casual fan because no matter what there's still another game. Part of the reason the Super Bowl is such a big event is that there's no second chance, no reset button basically.

The fact this series is between the Royals and Giants also hurts the numbers. The Royals are a great story and much of the country is cheering for them, but that's not enough to get casual viewers, especially East Coasters, to tune in. I'd be willing to bet that before the playoffs, your average fan could only name a handful of players from both teams combined.

Do other teams have this many strikeouts where the catcher has to throw to first or is it just how filthy these guys are?

Best I've seen from this team all season. Offense was great, but OU is a tremendous offensive team and K-State simply crap them down for much of the match.

Nice strategy of repeatedly making Madison Ward — whose 4.12 kills/ set rank second in the Big 12 during conference play — receive serve. She had eight kills on 34 attempts, with eight attack errors. .000 hitting. Held an OU offense that's hit a Big 12 best .274 in conference play to just .192 as a team.
