Stay away from the TV

I just happened to turn on the TV at the very beginning of the top of the ninth. “Doomed,” I said.

Fangraphs’ win probabilities had them at 91 percent to win after Valverde struck out Jay Bruce, a man with two first names. At 82 percent after the dreadful four-pitch walk. And at 18 percent after Ramon Hernandez took Valverde over the wall in right.

It was downhill to zero from there.
