Not with a bang but a checked swing.

    granted bad call but sour grapes if you insist that is why Giants lost—Scherzer was one strike away and the Giants did not have anyone in scoring position (just at 1st) against the game’s best pitcher—Chances of Giants tying the game at that point with a 2-2 count and two strikes was less than 2 per cent

    You can bitch about the Saints no-call against the Rams that cost them but not this

    Kapler said it best in his gracious post-game interview. They had many opportunities to win the game. The final result did not hang on that last missed call. Still, as a Dodger fan, the end result feels tainted because in baseball the result is (nearly) always in doubt until that 27th out. I went to sleep last night trying to think of a way the checked swing rule could somehow be cleaned up…still wondering. Also, at 85, I’ve been a Dodger fan for 65 years. But. It’s impossible to “hate” a first class organization like the SF Giants. What a great rivalry!!!


    • Flores probably would have made an out anyway, statistically. But yeah. The thing about baseball, it’s not over until it’s over. Would have felt very different had it ended on a ground out or fly ball or even a line out like mccovey in 1962.
      (I think the way you clean it up is make it reviewable.)
