Trying to rush this up because hey, it’s early a.m. and boy oh boyo that was a long game. And a helluva game! Di Billick, Adrian Serrano and Brett Ballantini got together postgame in the wee hours, to discuss this super-fun win.
Highlights of what we discussed, before Adrian had to hop on the El to make it to the park in time for Game 4 (slight exaggeration, perhaps, but just slight):
- For all the stats at hand, does Brett remember the exact final score? No, Brett does not remember the final score
- We discuss all the heroes of the game, with quotable stats: Tim Anderson, Leury García, Yasmani Grandal, Michael Kopech, Ryan Tepera and Aaron Bummer.
- The Great Grandal Controversy (or: A Great Defensive Team Decides to Throw a Ball Directly Into a Runner Then Cry Foul)
- Oh, hey, how about another hero: Tony La Russa
- What we’re looking for from Carlos Rodón in Game 4, and how the bullpen lines up behind him
- Impressions of the Blackout Game, 2021 Edition — and the measure impact it had on players
