Have to agree, for a game that’s so statistics driven it’s a disadvantage for relief pitchers starting extra innings with a base runner already on. Much easier to end up getting the loss through minimal fault of the pitcher. Funny coincidence, I was at that game as well. While I enjoy a good battle...

Ah yes, I remember how Biden and Pelosi stood in the streets of Minneapolis that June and gathered their followers, urging them to start rioting.

The comparison is pure gaslighting. We saw how both the Floyd protests and Trump's riots happened.
