Charlie Wilmoth at BucsDugout.com called it a "wait-off." I like it.

I like wait-off. I was going with a "walk-on" because they were all in the dugout, and then they all came back onto the field. But wait-off might be better.

I don't have a suggestion, but I know I don't like instant walkoff. I would think of a HR as an instant walkoff.

I'm with you on this one, and that was exactly my problem with it. If anything it's a delayed walkoff.

You also need to know Kershaw walked out from the dugout and onto the on-deck circle w/o a bat. I'm thinking it's the first time he's actually held a bat since last year. Reason number whatever showing why P should be at the plate. On that note, LAD had 33 RC from their Ps last year or something crazy like that. Only 3 teams had a positive RC from thier Ps to start and the next highest to the LAD were in single digits.

I don't know what it should be called, but it will probably end up being called something like the Jimmy John's Freaky Fast MLB NY Command Center Instant Replay Game Ending Win.

Before we get too excited about Robbie Ray, remember that game was against the Astros, let's see what he does against a major league team first.

The 25-day-old link on the matter of Sandoval wasn't very illuminating. Nothing more recent?

"The left-hander zoomed through seven innings of one-run work."

Correction: Kershaw did not allow any runs. He pitched shut out ball, leaving with an 8-0 lead.

Rather, Chris Perez allowed all three Nationals runs in relief.
