Blue Jays win Game 3 at home

Post by breadner kenneth cecil joseph » Thu, 22 Oct 1992 13:36:25


I am only posting this because I am still hearing from people who haven't
seen game one yet.

The Jays first run came on ANOTHER solo shot by Carter, off Avery. Guzman
pitched well, but so did Avery.
The Braves tied it 1-1 and then went ahead on a Kelly Gruber error.
But then Kelly lined a blast over the wall to tie it 2-2 in the 8th. This
breaks a consecutive hitless streak that made Bonds look hot.
Reardon came out, again. I cheered.
Cito went for Sprague, and he was intentionally walked to load the bases.
Then: Candy Maldonado. Two quick stikes, and then a fly ball to center
field. Game over.

I must say, honestly, that this game could have gone either way. A wonderful
show. Hope it continues for the rest of the Series.

Oh, and by the way, from what I saw, there were no shitty calls.

 WHAT?!?!?!  Where were you when Gruber tagged Sanders out at second for

Well, the play at 2nd to complete the triple play looked to be
miscalled.  Didn't make a difference really, but Sanders certainly
looked out.  Oh well, the ump was "right on top of the play".

And what is the deal with these slow ball/strike calls?  I've been
watching Jays' games all seaons, and I don't remember such a lag
between ball catch and umpire call.  Is it to draw out the suspense,
or are these guys having trouble making up their minds?

If he was tagged.  Did the tag hit his foot?  How sure are you?  From
everything I saw, it looked quite questionable.  Sure, Gruber
complained afterwards.  Meaning that it's likely the ump blew the call
(since Gruber doesn't *** *that* much).  But it was hardly obvious.

Besides, Gruber was an idiot for chasing Sanders himself.  He shoulda
tossed the ball to a teammate.  Or has he never done a run-down
before?  Maybe he tagged Deion, but it was *far* closer than it should
have been.

CBS called him out, but the umpire was right there, and he was very
quick and emphatic in waving him safe.  Of course Kelly was equally
emphatic that he tagged him.  Me,  I don't know but jeez I sure would
have liked to see them get a triple play!!!!!!

Heck, and I thought that in a rundown one is supposed to chase the
runner back towards the base he is coming from, and to use as few
throws as possible.  Gruber made the right decisions because he
did tag Sanders...the umpire just made a mistake.

  I thought that the reply showed that Gruber DID tag Sander's foot.
  To me, the glove bent back as it hit Sander's foot (especially from the
  first angle, the home plate camera, I think).

  Jay & Braves, Keep on playing this exciting ball!!!

   Here's a little tidbit to all Red Sox fans  :
   (and basically, I thought that Valentine's *** pressure needed
   a little boost... )

   Trade rumor from XTRA, a san diego radio station who is not real reliable..

     Boston gets ........ Tony Fernandez
     San Diego gets ..... Jody Reed  AND ......

              (several lines inserted for dramatic effect)

                     PHIL PLANTIER

     and some bozo called in to say "Well, yah, I'd make the trade; but,
     where does Reed play and who is Plantier ?"

     hee hee hee

You are a sick and twisted individual to post such a blatantly
one-sided deal to the net, and/or to give Lou Gorman ideas: consider
that we Red Sox fans have suffered through a season where the offense
did not exist!! Have pity upon us. :-) :-)

Cheer up, fellow Red Sox fans: it's got to be a joke. No GM would make
this deal!

Why, it would be as likely as a trade of Andres Gallaraga for Ken
Hill, or Scudder, Cook and Armstrong for Swindell, or Jeff Bagwell for
one month of Larry Andersen, or, ... oh nuts, it really could happen,
couldn't it?  :-(

Just say no, Lou, unless he throws in a player too: the one I want is
Benes if Plantier is going.

I'll believe it when I see it.  This is as bad as the Gonzalez for
Clemens rumor.  Sure, this deal would help San Diego.  But the
Sox already have a shortstop.  What would they do with another?

Besides, Tony is a free agent.  Shall the A's also trade Jeff Russell
for Bernie Williams?  They could use a center fielder...

In today's Toronto Star, they report that the umpire Bob Davidson (NL) said
"When I first called that play, I thought I was 100 per cent right. Then I
saw the replays and pictures and I thought I probably missed the play. But
that's baseabll and I have to turn the page and go on today [yesterday]. No
one feels worse about it than I do. I don't like to miss plays."

Pretty well handled in my opinion.

Oh please oh please oh please!  But calling XTRA ``unreliable''
is like calling the Sears Tower a multi-story building...

For those of us who missed it (long story), what is this almost triple play
thing you keep talking about?  So far I've heard something about Deion maybe
being tagged returning to second after going for third, but being passed by
Pendleton, who was out at first anyhow - and I am *so* confused...

There is an option year for 1993 remaining - the Padres have until
end of WS + 5(?) to pick it up & haven't made the decision.
It's at about $2.5 MM.  So you might get to keep him for a year.

How about throwing in Naehring & we'll kick in Jerald Clark
and Kurt Stillwell? :-)
Don't know what the Pads would do for SS w/o Tony - Sheffield?
Shipley is not an everyday player.  Maybe Faries...

This deal would make me very happy, but otherwise I'm pretty
sick at what San Diego is talking about doing.  They claim
to have to cut the payroll to $20MM from current $29MM -
while keeping $4MM each for Gwynn & McGriff.  I suspect
it'll be Gwynn, McGriff, Sheffield and a bunch of $109,000
players everywhere else.  Blech.  I don't think the
ownership knows what they are selling.  The product is not
simply "a baseball game" - fans want to see a winning team
or at least good efforts (viz Giants "you gotta love those kids"
from 1985 or so).  We'll be able to distinguish a giant
cardboard replica of a baseball team from a real team.
And at $4 to park and $12 for a ticket (and $4 for a beer!)
I'd rather take in a couple of movies.  At least Siskel and
Ebert make fewer errors.

yours whiningly,

Dave

If Boston makes this trade, Lou Gorman should be fired and shot,
not necessarily in that order.  Fernandez has lost a lot this year:  he
is now the offensive and defensive equivalent of Manuel Lee.  Besides,
he's a grouch.

Which means, of course, that he'll fit in perfectly in
the Red Sox clubhouse alongside Jack "Big Grouch" Clark, Mike "Little
Grouch" Greenwell, Wade "That Was Not An Error" Boggs, Roger "Yes, It Was"
Clemens, and Joe "Just Seeing If You're Paying Attention To This Post" Lundy.
