It's the night before Halloween when children go egging, tic-tacking and generally run amok.
I was wrong it's JUST Eastern PA and NJ that know what it is: http://gawker.com/these-eight-maps-prove-that-everyone-in-the-u-s-speaks-511622757

In my state it was called Devil'a Night. Mischief Night sounds corny and euphemistic.

When you think about it it's crazy that managers have to wear a uniform. Is this true for any other sport?

Darts.

I wish they would do it in football. It would be great to see Andy Reid in helmet and pads.

Eric, how often to guys' tools change once they hit the bigs?
Eric A Longenhagen
9:09
Quite a bit. Run usually goes backwards, for instance.

Mischief night is the reason I pooped on all of your porches.

Yeah right, dad.

A large percentage of chatters have little to no knowledge of Eastern PA and NJ? Point Fangraphs readership.

43 pitches through three innings, Bauer has exceeded Cleveland's wildest dreams

Gotta bunt one straight at Lester to see how it goes right?
Eric A Longenhagen
9:12
I would
Carson Cistulli
9:12
Yeah, Bauer currently has a negative FIP for the game. Pretty excellent.
9:13
By the way, Bauer's lowest single-game FIP for a start this year was 0.93 -- on June 6 at Seattle.

Ross and Rizzo are like magnets tonight

How do Rizzo and Ross not talk right there
Carson Cistulli
9:15
Rizzo and Ross collide on a catch. But get the out, nonetheless. Top 4 over.
Michael J. Scott

How does one get a negative FIP?
Carson Cistulli
9:16
The algorithm for FIP is just the product of regression, so it's not really designed to accommodate the most extreme outcomes.

Who was the highest ranked prospect pitcher on the 2 rosters? Bauer? (Carrasco?)
Eric A Longenhagen
9:16
Lester was highly rated as a prospect. Bauer probably the highest draft ranking.
9:17
Carrasco was Philly's #1 before the Lee deal, though.
5 Run Homer

Kris Bryant ain't bad
JC

Bryant!
Trainman

Well now he has a positive ERA.

Bryant on a line to left-center. Impressive. Now 1-1.
