John Williams here….Okay, seriously I nodded off.  It’s been that kind of series.  Then 2 HUGE HOMERS.  I don’t want to be that kind of fan, but it’s possible we win this one, and then the…..you know….

imkingjohn October 18, 20178:44 PM

Okay.  Perfect.  And then they get one.  Me as Joker:  Who ARE these guys!

4 hits in this game.  3 are HR’s.  Not surprising after this season…

Walks!  When I get to be king…walks….will be…..punished.

imkingjohn October 18, 20179:02 PM

Double play coming. Watch.

imkingjohn October 18, 20179:02 PM

HA!

The fans have been great in this series.  Standing and cheering for a 3-2 count on KB in the 4th.  THAT is trying to help….

Wood whiffed on the backhand.  Another Wood used to make that play.  No matter.  On we go..

And that Outlander TV show on STARZ is hot.

Outlander?  Wow, thanks John.  I’ll check that out.  Love your show, BTW.

The Bryce Harper/Bill Leff T-Mobile spot was funny for a while. A long time ago.  

imkingjohn October 18, 20179:23 PM

I agree John!  But that’s not Bill Leff.

imkingjohn October 18, 20179:24 PM

Uh, yuh.  I know…

imkingjohn October 18, 20179:28 PM

Bertrand and I argued about changing up the lineup or leaving the likes of Baez in there.  

I stand corrected.

Meanwhile, Minnesota is playing San Antonio.  Interesting to see Jimmy Butler, Taj Gibson in new uni’s.

imkingjohn October 18, 20179:42 PM

TV talk of pulling Arrieta, now in the 6th.  I’ll mute the volume on my set.  Jake in a groove, made only one mistake. Pull him?

imkingjohn October 18, 20179:42 PM

Couldn’t agree more John.

imkingjohn October 18, 20179:53 PM

Strange, winning in the 7th. This still isn’t a ton of fun…Game 6.  Game 7.  THOSE will be fun…

imkingjohn October 18, 201710:04 PM

98 pitches.  I don’t care.  Leave him in.

imkingjohn October 18, 201710:09 PM

Jake is PITCHING.  

imkingjohn October 18, 201710:10 PM

Contreras.  Sit.  Stay.  No.  

imkingjohn October 18, 201710:12 PM

Wow did we need pitch 109 to be a strike.  E-Ump.

imkingjohn October 18, 201710:13 PM

Don’t pull Jake.

imkingjohn October 18, 201710:36 PM

I know!  Put Arrieta back in! 

imkingjohn October 18, 201710:36 PM

Oh. Darn.

imkingjohn October 18, 201710:37 PM

Hurray! An out!

(I get to be this way….)
