Just kidding, though Twitter has just about imploded:

Arch Manning commits to Texas.

Only the CF knew how to track a ball. The others were out there for their bat…

In fairness to the outfielders, that stadium seems to be built on some sort of vortex that swings in/out at crazy speeds.

But, yeah.  Could've seen more from LF.

Overachieving season, 3-4 Supes, 2-3 CWS...Butch got it rolling.  Let's see what happens next year.

Great overachieving season.  Cole Foster is gonna be a beast when not sick.  Wish we could get 1 more year from Sonny D, but it is what it is.  Need a left fielder that can catch the damn ball though.

Solid overall pitching staff, with a great closer.  Outside of Sonny D though, not much that scared anybody at the plate.  At least not compared to most of the better teams they played down the stretch.

Great season though.  Sure hope they can build on it.

That was a complete fizzle.
It’s hard playing a team that has seen you so much. I like playing the new guys. But that’s the hand that was dealt. AU finally ran out of gas.
Helluva season for a last place in the west team!

I bitched about this to Jar/Buzz last night, but my tighty whities are still in a bunch.  The Braves did win with a walk off single last night, but to hear the post-game announcers say, “Snitker pushed all the right buttons”, gives me the gout.

If you have a tie game in the bottom of the 8th, you get your first two men on with no outs.  The two fastest guys on the team, BTW.  Your second place hitter at the plate.  One of the best closers in the game ready to pitch the 9th.  FOR GAWD SAKE, sacrifice the runners over.  You have 2nd and 3rd with one out and a simple fly ball basically gives you the game.  A ground out to the right side gives you the game.  You think any of that ever crossed Snitker’s brilliant baseball mind?  Hell no.  Bam….shot to the shortstop.  Double play.  Next batter, fly out that would have given you the game.

This is not football, where you holler WTF are you doing continuing to rush 3 while they’ve scored 35 straight points on you.  It’s not basketball where you complain that we’re taking way too many outside shots and need to get the ball inside.  This is Baseball For Dummies 101.  But, I guess the fans didn’t come to see you do something boring like bunt.  It’s swing so fucking hard at every pitch that you spin around and hit the ump with the bat. 

I’ve been on this soap box this entire season.  It’s not going to change.   

You tell em Uncle Rico.

It's all ball bearings launch angles and exit velocity now.

And that's another thing, you young whipper snappers.  Give me the batting average, HR's and RBI's.  Tell me about his stolen bases, doubles, walks and sacrifices.  I don't even know what WISP and FLISP and LGBTQLMNOP mean.  That ball came off his bat at 112 m.p.h. 

Your point?  Did he get a hit?
