    I, for one, welcome our new soccer-playing robot overlords. It’s about time someone took charge around here.Report

    The real breakthrough will be in all-robot crowds, which can presumably be programmed neither to get bored nor to riot during a 0-0 snoozefest.Report

        Some key players got hurt (Vogelsang, Pagan, Scutaro) and some others who had been playing over their heads (Blanco, Belt, Zito [1]) came back to earth. That’s enough to turn close victories into close (and sometime not-so-close) losses.

        1. For Zito, being a barely acceptable fifth starter was over his head.Report

      I’m sure they’ve recorded this for future reference.

      Seriously though, watch the video of those 4-legged ones (it’s less than 2 minutes). They’re adorable, in a creepy way, right? Who can not like them? And the cute little standard platform guys? You can almost forget that they’re going to destroy us all.Report

    Americans grow up playing baseball and football, while Euros and Brazillians play soccer.

    We robots grow up boxing, as seen here:


    If we grew up playing soccer, we would be dominant.Report
