    Doesn't seem like it's a fanbase thing, just Rosenbloom being a moron and writing a very shitty column.

    Had a total Hangar moment yesterday. Some guy sitting next to me said "The Cubs World Series is the most memorable ever." I said oh yeah? So memorable? Who was the winning pitcher in game seven? "I don't know I was hammered. It was the most memorable cause it went to game seven." I said even more memorable than Luis Gonzalez or Joe Carter? "Who are those gay gentlemen? I'll kick your ass gay gentleman." Ok dude. Paid my check and walked out.

    Besides the Sox winner, I think the D-Backs is the most memorable WS I have. The rest of 'em are just there.

    It's definitely mine, but I was pretty hard on the D-backs bandwagon since I have family there.

    3rd for me is probably the Rangers choking away game 6 against the Cardinals when they were 1 strike away and then losing G7.

    The '97 Marlins/Indians is pretty up there for me cause I was a freshman in college and we all got together and watched it.

    Guess I'll always remember Royals/Mets well since my mom fought her way through it and died the night after.

    This team is a disaster. Hopefully Washington takes the next 2 and the implosion really begins.

    It'll be real fucking clownshoes if no one else in the NLC can get their shit together and the Cubs hold on just enough to take that POS division.

    I've been raging about this the past couple weeks. OF FUCKING COURSE even though the cubs are having a dogshit year after their WS, they'll still most likely win the division due to gay gentlemenry. Meanwhile the SOX win 90 games in 06 and get 3rd place.

    Also had no business getting to, let alone winning, the WS after playing like dogshit the entire month of October.

    How sweet it would have been to watch them choke away their 2016 season then watch the window close shut before our very eyes in 2017.

    Instead, it'll be a WS ring and an 81-81 division championship.

    They were talking about it on 670 on my drive in how the Sox don't have the talent but they are young, don't quit and have fun. While the Cubs may have a better record but it seems like misery over there.

    Was a freshman in college for DBacks and Yankees and about 8 of us were gathered in my dorm room to watch that last inning. So I guess I'll always remember that one for a similar reason.

    At least this team doesn't look anywhere close on paper to being a competitive team in the playoffs. Even if the bats heat up, the starting pitching is very suspect and there's maybe 2 guys in the bullpen you can trust.

    What are the fuck are you watching, man?

    1st: Shit throw, yea
    2nd: Had no shot because of the slow delivery and held it
    3rd: Yeah, delayed steal - can't blame the catcher when no one was going to cover anyway
    4th: No shot, no throw
    5th: Another slow delivery combined with a pitch way high and outside - throw was good
    6th: Look at this fucking jump. And the pitch was in the dirt. He didn't not throw because of the guy on 1st, he didn't throw because Jake gave him no shot to get him.

    7th: The throw didn't matter because the jump was so good. He skied it because he was so rushed.

    Overall, I blame him on 1 of 7.

    It's a combination of both guys. Arrieta certainly doesn't help at all with his slow delivery but Montero at his age is not quick enough to throw anyone out either.

    Statcast can measure a lot of this shit now. Montero is old and bad, and second slowest to the base among active catchers. Arrieta and Lester are among the slowest pitchers in MLB at getting to the plate. That combination means teams run wild.

    D-Backs beating the Yankees in 2001 definitely ranks up there for me.

    I was a big, big Braves fan, so seeing the Yanks dominate the late '90s with such unlikely pudwhackers like Jim fucking Leyritz and Scott Brosius coming up huge in the postseason just ground my gears to infinity. They won 4 of the 5 World Series before 2001, often sweeping their opponents, so to see the D-Backs come back from a 3-2 game deficit and win in the bottom of the 9th off of Mariano Rivera was just *Italian chef fingers kiss*. So fucking good.

    The 2013 ALCS was fun too. My BIL was like "everyone except Red Sox fans are rooting for Detroit". And I was just like "nigga please, go Carmines."

    EDIT: oh, and that ALDS against Baltimore where Delmon Young cleared the bases was fun too.
