Yeah, for a network crew she’s not bad. Better than Harold Raines in the booth and Joe Buck.

Sounds like this has had a serious serious negative effect on your life.

Also you seriously overstate the ability of someone to say things like "Aaron Judge has had a heck of a year!" She's fine. She's doing fine. She's doing just as good as someone with years of experience would be doing. You're throwing a fit over nothing. Typical.

Nope. Never had it affect me. I never worked for anyone else in my life so I made my own decisions.

I got to golf on an 80 degree day in October. It was great. I played bad.

I don't know who I'm rooting for here. I guess the twins. But ultimately I don't want Cleveland to win. And that probably means Yankees. I don't know.

Can't believe that Severino and Santana were so bad. Give Santana a 3 run lead, and most of the time the game is over.

I've never seen someone get so shook over a female baseball announcer commenting on Aaron Judge being good and Didi Gregorius having a great swing.

I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

I'm not a fan of women in the booth, but I think she does an awesome job. That said, Goose has every right to his opinion.

For the Twins to have a shot he needed to repeat his last performance. Credit goes to girardi and the bullpen. They were able to stop every rally the Twins had. When they had bases loaded that was a great opportunity to do some real damage and Green got them out of a huge jam.

There's always a team that will shocks us. Watching the Yankees last night, they have the BP and the batting lineup to make a deep run. Their starting pitchers are a little suspect. They might give Cleveland a better series than we think.

Diamondbacks have an elite pitcher on the mound tonight, a hot hr hitter and a solid bp.

Seems like tonight will be a pitchers duel? What's your thoughts on the over. My instincts would be to take the under, but then again I was wrong about yesterday.

It's funny how I made a single comment which set off a storm of posts by multiple people that continues a day later and yet you see me as the one that was "shook".  Hell you've posted more about it than I did.  Leads me to question your powers of observation and self awareness.   But carry on, the PC crowd will now stroke you instead of criticizing you.

I think you made more than a single comment.

Maybe I missed it, but did you comment on how she did? You know...her actual performance?

Let me guess...she did OK for a girl?

On a sidenote...I'm not sure you should be commenting on someone else's self awareness.
