The baseline is tripping people out.
The Toronto Raptors have had their optical illusion baseline for a few seasons. But since they aren’t a big name team, casual fans probably have never watched a Raptors home game until today’s playoff opener.
Because of that, we saw some funny reactions on Twitter to the baseline.
I agree with this. If it’s a 7-run lead late in the game, you don’t bunt. But it was the first inning and the shift was on. The Astros could still come back and win the game. Or maybe the Astros don’t believe in themselves and got all angry at themselves.
