I was talking to a friend about all the awesome pitching we’ve seen in the playoffs this year, and eventually that led to a conversation about the best pitched postseason games in history and blah blah blah. By Game Score (98), Roger Clemens’ 15-strikeout, one-hit shutout of the Mariners in the Game Four of the 2000 ALCS is the best start in postseason history. Better than Don Larsen’s perfect game, better than Roy Halladay’s no-hitter, better than Bob Gibson’s 17-strikeout game. That blows my mind. I remember watching that game and thinking holy crap, but I didn’t realize just how historic that was. The video’s above.
Here is your open thread for the evening. There is no baseball until the World Series starts on Wednesday, which kinda sucks. I guess consider this preparation for the offseason. The late NFL game is the Broncos and the Colts, and that’s it for the night in sports. Talk about that game or anything else right here. Enjoy.
