    Uhhh, mods? Pretty clear off-topic reference to climate denial...or alarmism.

    No, really, perfect summary of the game and the experience.


    Well done!

    Just finished watching the game on my DVR. I'm fascinated by Dioner Navarro. First of all, he looks like every fat kid in every kid sports movie. 5'9" 205 according to BBRef (doesn't look like that now). I realize it is only one game but Pinto blocked a bunch of pitches that went over, under, and around Navarro. If this is any indication, Dioner must have Doumit-like defensive metrics.

    I was going to post something like this during the game. Pinto is very solid in the mechanics of catching, espcially compared to other catchers like Navarro: Setting the target, blocking pitches, catch and tag, throwing, etc. It seems like he just needs to learn the game calling thing. But he will.
