This World Series feels more hot takey than normal. Do you agree? Let’s observe the takes and some news as well.
In Mariners News...

- The Mariners’ High Performance Camp served the Arizona Miracle League yesterday.
Our staff and players from our High Performance Camp had the privilege to serve the Arizona Miracle League this morning. Such a great turnout. Proud of everyone involved and the “lift while you climb” mindset that our players own. Our People. Our Process. pic.twitter.com/hc6DEhLK3n— Andy McKay (@AndyMcKayHG) October 27, 2018
Around the League...
- Grant Brisbee broke down Friday night’s thrilling 18 inning game.
- Dave Roberts pulled Rich Hill after six and one third innings of one hit, one run baseball. People disagreed with this decision.
every time Dave Roberts tries a Choose Your Own Adventure the book catches fire and burns off his fingernails— Jeff Sullivan (@based_ball) October 28, 2018
Hard questions for Dave Roberts:— Steve Mason (@VeniceMase) October 28, 2018
-Did he take Rich hill out to early?
-Why go to Madson in the 7th given how bd he’s been?
-Why go to Kenley in the 8th?
-Why not bring in Wood to face lefty Devers in the 9th?#Dodgers #LADetermined
“GREAT” micro-managing from Dave Roberts. Rich Hill pitching a gem, gets a strikeout, is pulled. Alexander with a 4 pitch walk gets yanked. Madson comes in and gives up the 3-run homer. Let pitchers pitch and players play, especially after going 18 innings.— Bernardo Osuna (@osunaespn) October 28, 2018
World Series MVP so far for the Red Sox: Dave Roberts— Sandhesh (@IamBeingSandy) October 28, 2018
- People also doubted Alex Cora’s decision making two nights ago.
"It'll be an expensive win...or a costly loss" - @Buck on last nights game from a @RedSox perspective. #WorldSeries— Cole Wright (@ColeWrightNFL) October 27, 2018
Game 4 should be interesting tonight...Go #Dodgers
Welp, that was a mighty expensive loss for the Red Sox. It may have cost them the series.— Michael Collins (@MCFanSided) October 27, 2018
- Nathan Eovaldi cannot be stopped.
Alex Cora: "I saw (Nate Eovaldi) this morning and he was telling people he's ready to go. I'm like, 'Your agent is going to kill me.'"— Chris Mason (@ByChrisMason) October 27, 2018
- Shockingly, the only Twitter personality admitting that they know less than a manager of a World Series team is Bill Simmons.
I would have walked Machado proving yet again that Alex Cora knows way more about baseball than me. Let’s go to the 11th!— Bill Simmons (@BillSimmons) October 27, 2018
- Steve Pearce joined some elite company last night.
Steve Pearce is the 3rd @RedSox player ever to homer and drive in 4 in a #WorldSeries game (Yastrzemski, 1967; @davidortiz, 2004). pic.twitter.com/NUKJEyukC8— MLB Stat of the Day (@MLBStatoftheDay) October 28, 2018
- Unsurprising stat.
This is the 5th time the @RedSox have held a 3-1 #WorldSeries lead …— MLB Stat of the Day (@MLBStatoftheDay) October 28, 2018
They’ve won it all the previous 4 times. pic.twitter.com/OANAyycvJv
- The Sox are the first team this year to come back from down four or more against the Dodgers.
The @RedSox just cracked the code.— MLB Stat of the Day (@MLBStatoftheDay) October 28, 2018
The Dodgers were 54-0 when leading by 4+ runs in 2018 and were the only undefeated team in @MLB. #WorldSeries (h/t: @espnstatsinfo) pic.twitter.com/zfHahvh7Yo
