            Whatever happened to the Reyes virus guy? I was waiting for him to say that the Padres lost this game because they have a player named Reyes :)

              As others said, it stuck to his hand so he unintentionally threw it farther while throwing it toward his dugout. You can even see him look back at it like "Well that wasn't what I was trying to do."

              @Vincent Cuttolo One last thing A-Rod has 25 GSs? Wow! I didnt know he had THAT many. Thats an amazing feat for sure.

              @Vincent Cuttolo See those are the interesting stats I love to look at!! Journeymen who are absolutely unstoppable in certain situations, etc. That Joey Gallo Stat is absolutely horrible! More HRs than base hits?! Horrible! Kinda like Khris Davis. The man has 30 hits this year 10 being home runs. Then you look at his career. Just over 700 hits and just cracked his 200th HR this year. Thats almost 1 hr every 3rd hit! I love talking about those quirky stats like you mention Tabler with bases loaded batting .500+! Or Lawless being traded for Pete Rose, I didnt know that!! Thanks for the interesting convo! Till next time!

              @Robert Miller
              I had no memory of the Lawless bat flip, although I sure remember that World Series. Guess it wasn't much of a story at the time. Lawless has another claim to fame: He's the only player ever traded for Pete Rose.

              ARod* generally was a lousy player in the clutch, yet he had an astonishing 25 Grand Slams*. Journeyman Pat Tabler was famous for being unstoppable with the bases loaded - the man hit over .500 in more than 100 PAs with the sacks full - but he only had two grand slams. Not that it matters; I'll take a guy who hits .500 with the bases full any day. A weird stat I saw recently concerns Joey Gallo of the Texas Rangers, who has 100 career HRs, and 93 career singles. _There's_ a guy I don't want on my team.

              @Vincent Cuttolo
              1. On a homerun, youre gonna naturally flip the bat differently, just based off the natural endorphin rush of crushing the ball outta the park as compared to just flipping the bat on a walk. My point was/is "bat flips" are not new, they might be "trending" as the millenials say, but its far from being a new baseball phenomena. I've seen Reggie Jackson, Mike Schmidt, even one of Willie McCovey doing a bat flip. Watch Tom Lawless in the '87 World Series. Now thats one hell of a bat flip! In the WS no less!! No big deal.

              2. About Alonso I was just saying "its too bad" he wasnt at this level just a few years younger. I was talking more from a collector standpoint. Investing in an older rookie like Alonso, in the long run, even at a torrid pace, he will still have a hard time putting up numbers for Cooperstown as compared to a Trout/Harper/Bellinger/Acuna Jr type player that was/is producing above average numbers from 19-21 years old...so far, with Trout being in a class of his own(Already HOF #s) and Harper a leap behind him. I was by no means dissing the guy! He's a great player, impressive under pressure so far, but hes never seen end of the season; post season pressure yet and thats a whole seperate beast. Ask A-Rod..lol

              While we can agree to disagree on the bat flips, we can still talk baseball, yeah? I came across am article about Hunter Renfroe I never knew but found interesting.
              Have you seen his stats with the bases loaded? Here Ill find the article, check this out. If you dont feel like reading, i did a small breakdown.

              https://www.mlb.com/news/hunter-renfroe-hitting-grand-slams-for-padres

              If you don't want to read the whole thing. Heres the interesting stuff.
              He has a career total of 65 HRs with 5 being Slams! Its a 7.7% rate the highest in history with players over 5.
              Derek Jeter hit one in his entire career despite 260 total home runs and years of playing in powerful Yankees lineups. Pete Rose also hit one, among his record 4,256 hits. Three-time All-Star Freddie Freeman is still waiting for his first as he approaches his 200th career big fly. Now check this list. Active players with more career HRs with less Grand Slams. Interesting, huh?
              • Miguel Cabrera (466 career HR, four GS)
              • Evan Longoria (282 career HR, three GS)
              • Joey Votto (272 career HR, four GS)
              • Adam Jones (272 career HR, two GS)
              • Ian Kinsler (252 career HR, one GS)
              • Andrew McCutchen (228 career HR, one GS)
              • Paul Goldschmidt (218 career HR, four GS)
              • Khris Davis (203 career HR, two GS)
              • Anthony Rizzo (200 career HR, three GS)
              • Bryce Harper (191 career HR, four GS)

            How did we not lose this game, Padres did something in their lifetime to be the only team never to have thrown a no hitter and cant score on a wild pitch.

            This is why suicide squeezes were meant for. Idc how much power or amazing the hitter is. You do a suicide squeeze the game is tied. God knows I need to manage a baseball team. Give me a chance any team, I'll do it for free.

              That's funny. Dude, I was agreeing with you, in an admittedly wise-ass manner. Re-read what I wrote

              @Vincent Cuttolo little man I've watched more baseball then you can imagine. I understand the premises of suicide squeeze hence SUICIDE in the name. Once you show bunt dumbass u got the infield already drawn in and now it's useless. God some dumb ass MF up in here. You clearly need to learn to read and bulk up your vocabulary words.

              @Jonathan Mendez
              I guess you've never seen a batter miss the pitch on a suicide squeeze? Watch more baseball. On a safety squeeze, you get as many tries as you want, unless the guy strikes out.

            • Jonathan Mendez
              Jonathan Mendez  4 months back

              @Vincent Cuttolo safety squeeze does nothing man. Unless u got super speed at third and a perfect bunt it womt work. Your guaranteed a run in a suicide squeeze. Theres also a high percentage of the first pitch being a strike.

              @Jonathan Mendez
              Suicide sqeezes are extremely dangerous. I can understand a safety squeeze. But suicide squeeze? Why?

          • Summer Of Sam Summer Of Sam

            Can they limit the coaching timeouts? I was watching this game and there was just too many TO's called to talk about the play and to make a pitching change. Really making the game slower.

              It's people like u that I hate, it's a fucking game, sit back and enjoy like you got anything else better to do. Your watching it for 2 and a half hour what the fuck is another 15-30min.

            Damn, the Padres middle relievers couldn't hold the lead again. Reyes shot sounded so good off the bat, and opposite field as well.  That play with France at second was iffy, the tag was applied pretty hard, did it make him lose his balance? Deep shot by the Mets on that home run, definite no doubter there
