[BASE] Bears lose 3-1 to #4 OSU in Pac-12 Championship. They left the bases loaded in the 5th and got the tying run to bat in the bottom of the ninth, but the Beavers pitching/defense was solid in preventing the Bears from threatening much. The Championship is double-elimination, so they play #20 UCLA for the second time in three days today in a time of this writing that is still TBD.

I think Bears got a decent shot at winning today, but it's hard to see how this pitching staff, with guys already used and unavailable, can possibly win two games over Oregon State tomorrow. But let's get there first.

The Beavs are so solid. Clutch 2-out hitting in the decisive T5th inning plated a couple, and Hjerpe is an absolute stud...he limited the Bears lefty-heavy lineup. Good game tho...

Brexit

Expand full comment

My wife is in her third week in Scotland doing hikes and meditation. Brexit means there is a massive shortage of workers. She says that every shop has a help wanted sign and every place has limited hours. She has to go line up at a half hour before a restaurant opens in order to get food and said that American family left in tears at 5:30pm because they're having trouble finding food.

Expand full comment

That’s not just brexit, that’s also happening here. The issues are caused by the same thing, low wage worker shortages caused by anti-immigration policies here and in the UK which is restricting workers from arriving they would work in the tourist and food industry.

also, you think Brexit related? or the Great Resignation? or some combo of both?

Perhaps a bit of both, but locals said that they're a really touristy area and normally all of their seasonal staff were young continentals doing walk-abouts for a summer. The paperwork is too onerous to do, so the seasonal staff go elsewhere in Europe.

Massively Brexit related. The hospitality industry, especially the seasonal one, was almost exclusively staffed by European workers.

Stopping at a stop sign. Perhaps this is a hot take, but I think if a law is rarely followed, then it's a dumb law. It should be changed to "approach a stop sign at a speed where you can easily stop if you need to"

Expand full comment

How else will Moraga police run up their ticket count on my street?

Expand full comment

It is a hot take. But I understand where you're coming from.

I know that very few folks come to a complete stop at a STOP sign. I even understand why. I even do it sometimes myself. But I do slow down enough that I can come to a complete stop by simply following through on braking; I never have to stand on the brakes.

And that's the point - the STOP sign laws ensure that the vast majority of motorists will slow down enough to keep pedestrians safe. Even so, way too many pedestrians are still injured and killed by careless drivers. Personally, I think that way too many folks have a driver's license because they're way too cavalier about driving.

Sorry to rain on your hot take.

Expand full comment

If a pedestrian is killed because of failure to come to a complete stop at a stop sign its because the motorist didnt even see the stop sign (or pedestrian), not because they saw it and chose to slowly roll through it.

Expand full comment

eh, even more so - I'm something of a speed demon (at times) - but I realized one time that you really SHOULD stop all the way in urban environments. One time (Oakland Chinatown) I was doing my usual thing of almost stopping, but maybe creeping at 2 mph - problem was the A-pillar blocked my view of a pedestrian who was moving at about 2 mph as well - I didn't hit them, but I realized it was a real issue.

My son said that he doesn't stop at a red light when turning red if he can see the crossing traffic and no one is coming.

Expand full comment

That is very dangerous for any pedestrians attempting to walk in a cross walk, bicyclist, people riding skate boards, and young kids. He should really stop at the red regardless of cross traffic.

Expand full comment

That's one I'll never do, I've seen too many T-bone aftermaths in LA to run that risk

Expand full comment

Still is dangerous. A driver did that in front of a pedestrian (me) yesterday. If I had stepped off the curb, I would have been hit; I had the green light.

FiatSlug, if I was the skipper, you'd ALWAYS have the green light.

oh I know. He says he does check both directions to make sure there are no peds or cars. Hey, he can pay for his ticket when he inevitably gets one.

Just so long as no one is hurt, ever, it should be okay.

The older I get, though, the less trust I have that people will act rationally in all situations. Sometimes you gotta honor that vibe that says, "Not today. Don't chance it."

No 2 and I watched outside Chase, on the seats facing the Inside the NBA crew. I had worn a UNC shirt hoping to get Kenny to sign it and he brought an NBA 2K18 for Ernie to sign it after they were done. He was able to get Ernie to sign it so that's pretty cool.

What happened with Chuck where he was standing up facing the crowd gesturing during the post-game broadcast? They cut to a commercial and were clearly out of sorts, then Kenny made a comment that Chuck was his guy but they never really said what happened.

Expand full comment

Some fans threw a couple of things (tshirts and stuff) at him. Maybe splashed him with water. He took a cup and threw water over his shoulder at them. Then I think they threw some more things at him. Some were being dicks. Lots of Chuck You Suck chants. He got up and pretended to throw the cup at them a couple of times. I think he was pissed at first, but it looked like the second time looked like he was smirking so maybe he was just trying to scare the guy.

I did see one or two guys giving him the double finger but backing up while doing it. I did see security get a guy or two outta there. I think it was just a few guys being assholes and the rest were just content on yelling at Chuck. Of course, then they were chanting that Shaq had his hand behind him telling them to make it louder.

Barkley seemingly has always hated the Bay.

I watched the first three quarters. Dallas cut the lead in the third but they were still down by ten and had only gained seven in the third. It just didn't feel like Dubs were going to let it get all the way away.

I don't think anyone foresaw Kevon Looney being so good in this series.

Expand full comment

i agree, he played great. but maybe it mostly due to Dallas's lack of interior size.

Expand full comment

Don't forget against Memphis he more than held his own against JJJ and Steven Adams. He an underrated rebounder.

Expand full comment

I think most people assumed he'd be played off the court on the defensive end, due to Dallas' five-wide offensive style. But he actually held up well defending on the perimeter. It wasn't easy for Luka or anyone else to go at him.

Game #47: A’s blink first in pitching duel, lose 4-1 to Rangers

https://www.athleticsnation.com/2022/5/26/23143802/game-47-as-lose-rangers-montas-trivino

The A’s were on the wrong side of a pitching duel at the Coliseum tonight, losing to the Texas Rangers 4-1 in the series opener.

The starting pitching on both sides was excellent, as each went seven innings and allowed just a single run. The A’s bullpen fell apart in the ninth, though, allowing three runs in a rare meltdown from the ‘pen.

With both teams' aces going tonight, it looked like spectators were in store for a pitching duel. And that’s exactly what happened in this game, with Frankie Montas facing off against Martin Perez for seven innings apiece tonight at the Coliseum.

Freddie Freeman, Mookie Betts lead latest Dodgers offensive barrage

https://www.truebluela.com/2022/5/26/23143818/fredde-freeman-mookie-betts-dodgers-offense-diamondbacks

Freddie Freeman led a potent attack, collecting four of the Dodgers’ season-high 24 hits and scored double digits for the sixth time in a 14-1 win over the Diamondbacks on Thursday night at Chase Field in Phoenix.

Freeman hadn’t homered since April 24, but even with the long ball drought he was still having a stellar month. He entered Thursday with an .849 OPS in May, and his RBI double in the first inning scored the first run of the game.

Then in the second inning, with one out and two runners on, Freeman unloaded on a pitch from Humberto Castellanos.

Muncy possibly headed to IL with elbow pain after injury that ended his '21 campaign... may help explain his brutal start.

*******************************

May 26: Max Muncy sits with left elbow discomfort

Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Muncy has been dealing with some left elbow discomfort after banging against the wall in the series opener against the Nationals on Monday. Muncy, who suffered a torn UCL in his left elbow last season, could head to the injured list for the first time this season, but that decision has not yet been made. Outfielder Kevin Pillar is on the team’s taxi squad and would likely replace Muncy if he goes on the IL. -- Juan Toribio

Expand full comment

Might explain why he's hitting like .197 or something. But I guess the Dodgers will have to fall back on Mookie Betts, Freddie Freeman, Trea Turner, Will Smith, Chris Taylor and Justin Turner (who is also struggling)

Expand full comment

JT has turned it up the last 2-3 weeks. I think he's been seeing the ball much better. CT3 strikes out a lot and gets beat on the high fastballs, as does Bellinger.

Overall, they're hitting the ball well, but every so often have a game or two where no one hits.

Expand full comment

Ya, he's down to .150.

I've watched a bunch of his ab's...for the most part, he has the look of a player that had an abbreviated spring training but is close to turning it around: his knowledge of the strike zone and plate discipline remains exceptional, as he's on pace for 131 walks...he's just missing pitches. Tough to say if the lack of production is due to the mush-ball MLB is using, or weakness because of the arm injury, but maybe an IL stint would be helpful if for nothing else to clear his head.

The GOP has seized on a canned line about “hey let’s not play politics” as if that is like a civil response.
