Did my eyes deceive me? Was Bumgarners WS performance one of, if not THE best ever?

Didn't they flash the stat?


YES IT WAS!!

and that's why i would've waved that fucking runner home from 3rd -- and taken that 5% chance of scoring --

because MB was un-fucking hittable

I'm glad you're beginning to see it my way


He got Salvador Perez to end the game. Perez had two hits off of Bumgarner in the series including a home run. Perez's chances of bringing that run home were significantly higher than 5%.


And no one knows how badly he was hurt. I don't think it was all that much (I head on the radio last night a commentator suggest Eric Kratz should have been brought in to pinch hit. The way they were talking you would have thought Perez was missing a leg. Stoopid Phillies' fans. :) )

Definitely better to hope Perez got a hit than to send Gordon.

Perez couldn't fucking walk -- he shouldn't have been hitting -- he was hurt badly by the pitch in the 2nd inning - in a normal game, he was OUT of there in the 2nd inning

He caught 7 more innings after that and drove a ball to RF in his previous AB in the 7th against Bum. He would have gotten to first base if he found green in the OF. He would have made it around the bases if he put one in the seats. No pitcher is so unhittable to hold major league hitters to an .050 batting average.

That's what you got out of that ?
Irrelevant Analogy w/o context


What's irrelevant is you saying Ruth faced better pitching when it's a fact MB had best performance ever

How does it get better than the best ever? Or do you just like to be argumentative?

a pitching stat line is contextual
to extrapolate MB to what Babe Ruth may have faced is a meaningless analogy
argumentative is the pot calling the kettle black.
aside from your general don't criticize the coaches statement, the rest was wrong or irrelevant.

Ok whatever, everything that doesn't support your side is irrelevant

Enjoy that

I dont have a "Side"
I already said the decision to hold the runner looked like the right decision.
I am only commenting on your statements regarding Babe Ruth's performance, making the last out at home and comparing Yost to Hurdle.

I don't see how that's relevant
