You guys might want to tune into this. Verlander is filthy!  Tigers up 8-0.   I'm not sure the Astros even want to get a hit today.

I'm not a terribly suspicious person when it comes to sports, and I realize that any suspicions I might have have absolutely no impact on the outcome of anything at all, but dude. Come on.

as I am typing this a man reaches on an error...

 

lets say he is at 120 pitches going into the 8th and we are dominating handily do you send him out just to chase a perfect game or a no hitter?

 

I wouldn't.

 

anyone else care to chime in.

ps.  double play makes facing 27 batters possible again...

Thanks a lot, Terminate Carr. Irrational or not, baseball is a sport with many superstitions, a major one of which is to NEVER talk about a no hitter in progress. Therefore, I'm irrationally blaming you.

Edit: My wife, who knows very little about baseball and just started to watch it with me last season, even knew not to say anything today. Pretty much, she, in her novice fanhood, has infinitely better baseball fan ettiquette than you.
