    Of course the homer happens as soon as I have to leave the room

    Well that was an ugly inning. Bohm looks great so far, triple short of the cycle. Still in it though.

    Had tee ball practice for my daughter so didn't catch most of it. Sounds like Nola was cruising and then all of a sudden...poof?

    Do they offer Quick Ball in your area?

    They do! My son's playing it in pee wee, and my daughter did it last year.

    I like to think I was the pioneer here two years ago haha. They didn't start the program yet, and the only way I could keep them engaged was to implement my own version of quickball.

    But, yeah, they're still tiering to tee ball though it's very much still the same problem that Quickball fixes - them not picking their nose and looking at the sky. Here it goes: pee wee (quickball), tee ball, minors (pitch machine), majors.

    My nephews started with quick ball. I thought it was stupid at first but it does feel like a good way to get them engaged with the sport early on. 

    They us a pitch machine? Is that like the first little league season?

    Any derivative of the actual game that I grew up with I bristle at lol, so I get it. But, yeah, all 3/4/5 year olds want to do is run around and act crazy. So this helps leverage that way more than tee ball does.

    Yeah somewhere between tee ball and regular little league they use both a pitching machine and this sort-of-catapult looking jawn that you pull back and it lobs the ball at them. We are no where near that yet tho. All I want them to be able to do right now is hit a bit, throw a little bit, place the bat down without chucking it, and run the right way on the bases.

    Nola & Realmuto were talking about the inning spiraling with the pitch clock and all. But this kind of thing has happened to Nola for years. Just one game - we'll move on.

    Yeah, I know Nola is notoriously slow on the mound, especially once guys get on base he tries to slow everything down. And you definitely do not have that luxury anymore. He's gonna have to adjust.

    Also, I've come to the decision that I really, really, really, REALLY fucking hate the clock for the postseason. I think it should strictly be a season-only thing.

    Maybe eliminate it from the 7th inning on in the post season? Or make it 20 and 25 seconds?

    It will be nice knowing the game will end around 11 instead of around 12 in October though....

    That in-between pitch drama is pretty good but it was so annoying watching these guys do their 30 second ritual between every damn pitch. I say everyone is used to it by then.

    Nola's first batter was a 10-pitch at bat and I was definitely thinking this can wipe out a pitcher real fast.

    Pitch machine is golden.  They bring the kids to the mound too early.  All it leads to is half of the team sucking worse at hitting because they are freaked out about dodging the shitty pitching from kids, coming at them.  Through two kids at this age of transition (nephew with us and now our son) it is about 1 or 2 kids on a team that are remotely consisent in reaching the plate with rmtheir "pitches"....and the worst part of all is that they call anything close to the strike zone (within a foot) as a strike,  because otherwise every a b would be a walk.  So the kids also learn to swing at trash

    Nahhhh, I can't buy that. I understand wanting to keep 162 games over 6 months moving along, but come October I need to let these guys just play. Limit the amount of times catchers go to the mound? Absolutely? Give the ump discretion on peppin' the game up? Yup. But let the pitcher and batter duel.

    With the clock there's no way Harper's AB to clinch the NLCS would have happened like that, or possibly at all. I don't want to lose those moments.

    Yeah agreed for the most part. Kids don't need to worry about pitching until 10 - or at the very earliest 9. Pitching machines and coaches throwing before then.

    that was an ugly two games of baseball. Hoping they at least salvage a win today.

    Well at least we only have up two runs, unfortunately only scored one 😕

    not a good night for Philly sports with flyers losing and officially being eliminated from the playoffs. And the sixers losing to the bucks (hopefully not a preview of the playoffs).

    It is insane how any routine pop fly to right in this ballpark can look like, and possibly lead to, a home run.
