Open Thread, 6/13: San Diego vs Los Angeles

My gut feeling from yesterday didn't exactly pan out. If you really considered the facts, my gut didn't get it right at all.

What's my gut feeling now? Another win. I actually checked the FanGraphs scoreboard and somehow, our win probability's already down to 7%. Mathematically, we're very very far behind, but by my gut, I say that 93% is nothin'.

Jess is at a bachelorette party tonight. It's got a passion party theme, which is like a tupperware party except with instruments of lovemaking. I was thinking to myself that we could do something similar except instead of sex toys, we have baseball stuff. Like part of the party is just hanging out checking out really rare baseball cards or game used stuff that's really fancy, but then at the end everybody gets to buy stuff. That would be legit.

Here's something else to think about: If you could have 9 DHs in a game, what would baseball teams look like?
