    Nothing incites bodily violence quicker than a Duke fan turning in your direction and saying 'scoreboard.'

    I don't know what you are doing right now, but if you aren't listening to the DBR Podcast, you're doing it wrong.

    If you read the rule, it is subject to much interpretation...and in this particular case, the umps decided to ignore pure common sense...

    Turner beats out a good throw, so the Astros were benefited from the throw being off line. Horrible call. And as mad as Davey was, he has to control himself better, but the ump also has to let him say his peace and wear the berating. Umps have been terrible all series and they shouldnít double down by running a manager in game 6. Baseball gods and Rendon made everything right in the end but itís crazy that the story after Coleís incredible performance was Robo Umps (and flashers) and the story after Strasís gem is the Turner call (and carrying bats around the bases).

    But other than that, what a game! Game 7 tonight and my team has a chance to win the freaking World Series today! Canít ask for anything more. So hard to believe. Itís been an amazing ride. I hope Max can be Max tonight to give the Nats a chance.

    Letís go Nats! Letís go 1-0 one more time

    Has a play ever been met with more relief by league execs than Rendon's HR?
    Demented and sad, but social, right?

    And make a call that is NEVER made. Just unbelievable. I'm sure Holbrook knows he goofed, but had no way out of it.

    Really think they need to switch to the softball style first base bags, for that play and for safety reasons.

    I think this is key. The rule is broken nearly 100% of the time because it's faster to get to first base. The interpretation is unclear. Gurriel's glove was in fair territory and knocked away before he can catch it. If Turner is running 8 inches to the right, he's out (assuming Gurriel catches it). Ball don't lie after Rendon's at bat I guess.

    Astros are gripping again, though. And with Scherzer tonight, I think the Nats have to be favored. It's probably a done deal. Yeah. I don't think there is any way the Astros win.

    Agree on softball style bags, but will George Will and Bob Costas allow it?

    Have to call you out on the attempted reverse jinx! My turn - I'm worried that Max isn't close to 100%, and he wasn't great in game 1. Grienke's career numbers against the Nats are really really good. Houston has been the better team all year, and the home team has to win at some point, right?

    All that said, I feel like this is playing with house money as a Nats fan. I felt the season was over when Hader came into the WC game, when Will Smith hit a ball to the warning track in the bottom of the 9th in game 5 of the NLDS, and after the stinkbomb in DC this weekend. So happy to have one more game to watch, it's been an amazing year. Hope they finish the fight!

    I kind of thought that Davey was looking for an ejection to rally his lads after a series of very bad calls over the past two games...he felt he had to stand up for them.

    It's also worth nothing that with a different runner (not Tuner) the pitcher takes the time to make a better throw. Turner was penalized simply because he's fast.

    The home plate umps have been bad both ways. The guy last night was consistent at least. No inside corner, wide outside corner.

    But game 2 (or was it 3?) and game 5 umps were all over the place and I can match bad call for bad call against both teamsí pitchers and hitters.

    I will say that if Greinke chokes tonight, that trade becomes a bust.

    Itís over. Astros havenít come from behind all post season I believe.

    I donít mind pulling Greinke but go with the 2017 plan and put in Cole. That said, Kendrickís home run was one of the luckiest home runs Iíve seen.

    Nat fans can shut up about balls and strikes now. Theyíve been insufferable since the Robles call. I support robots but both sides have been bad.

    The baseball gods have spoken. Turner did not interfere with the catch and was safe on first.

    Congrats Nats. One team was able to get runs late when behind this series. One wasnít. I was excited when Corbin came in, but he shut the Astros down. What a crazy series.

    Wow. Still canít believe it. What an amazing season. Nats painted themselves in a corner early on and fought back. Felt like they were playing elimination games from May onward, so itís no surprise they went 5-0 and had to come from behind in them in the post season. That said they were super fortunate to win. That is a really great Astroís team with a terrifying lineup. Nats couldn't get to Greinke at all, and were very lucky to only be down 2-0 heading into the 7th. And they got the favorable calls and breaks late and earned the rest. Most fun Iíve ever had watching a baseball season. Parade on Saturday!
