The right Price for a King…..Ting bu dong

screen-shot-2014-08-06-at-7-57-56-amI tried as I might to watch the game today. I am a slave to the splotchy at best internet here in rural China. I sometimes listen or watch live, most days I catch it hours or 1/2 day later, but often without knowing the results. Some days are better than others, and a rainy Sunday morning as not a good one to choose to watch what I thought could be one of the key pitching match ups of the year. Price’s Comerica Park debut vs King Felix, who has been on a historical run this year, and on top of it, the Mariners are up on the Tigers in the , gulp, wild card race, yikes. I sat through 30 tough minutes of the game starting and stopping, still not knowing the results, damn internet, did Price dominate with his power, or did King Felix reign supreme? This is how life is here in rural China, never what you want, rarely what you need, often much better than what you could imagine, and about half the time frustrating as shit, no matter the outcome. I just wated to sit back, and watch the game. No mas. Mayo. Bu hou. Wo bu hou baseball. Ting bu dong mofo. And if you understand any on that, I will buy you several rounds of Tsingtao next we meet. So apparently it was the right Price today, and so far……22.2 in, 16 h, 8 runs, 6 BB, 23 so with the Tigers, and today dominating with power as usual, and it was checkmate for the king, ending his run of dominance (only made it 5 innings). Good to read about it, great win. lets go Tigers!!!
