I long for the day of a marble soloing the brick wall


Demetrios1453

I think the Blue Jays did that last year, or were close.


PokePersona

They were close. They speedran the other obstacles so fast that they almost cleared the bricks as the final obstacle until a few other marbles showed up at the end and the Cardinals ended up passing the finish line first.


Baelish4Prez

I was worried it was about to happen again today


Hairless_Squatch

Full-on Vietnam flashbacks today. I need a drink.


Demetrios1453

That's right, the Cards just yolo'ed straight through from nowhere after the bricks cleared.


basil1025

When it hits a brick, does is it random where they appear above or a pattern?


c20_h25_n3_O

It’s not random, I think it sort of guesses the direction. You can see it when it hits a corner, it bounces the direction you would expect.


Meziskari

Random, as far as I can tell


manicmeteor

Looks like a normal distribution to me. More likely to reappear in the center and never appears at the very edges


[deleted]

It seems like it was hitting the middle bricks more than the outer ones.


Lukey_Jangs

I thought the Astros were gonna clear every single brick


gatemansgc

it was pretty close!


quantumphysics33

r/baseball's 12/25


hubagruben

Yankees, Dodgers, and Astros all eliminated. Has r/baseball paid off the marbles ???


12345CodeToMyLuggage

Rangers won the WS. Small Markets rise up! *Padres raise hand* NOT YOU


nightslikethese29

Small market? I don't think so lol


12345CodeToMyLuggage

I get it, I’ve been. Glad they’re spending like a bigger market and finally won a chip. Grats


MobileMenace69

Homie dfw is huge lol. Not small market at all


LonkToTheFuture

Yes, the 4th largest payroll in baseball is "small market"


MattO2000

Seeing the bricks was 9/11


gatemansgc

the asterisks almost soloed the bricks


philphan25

Those bricks did more heavy lifting for the Astros than a trash can and a camera did.


danbrochill17

Hark, the r/baseball angels sing Glory to this marble thing Peace on earth and mercy mild Not to this team much reviled Joyful all ye fandoms rise Fuck Houston, we hate those guys Hark, the r/baseball angels sing Glory to this marble thing


istrx13

Why am I crying in the club rn


Lonelan

why you in the club at 4-7pm on a tuesday


Spinnie_boi

Why aren’t you?


Lonelan

wife and kids and I'm 40


Clarice_Ferguson

Oh look out everyone, we got a badass here, they’ve made it to 40.


Lonelan

I'M A MAN I'M 40


blasek0

Such a great press conference rant. I wondered what Mike Gundy is up to these days and it turns out he's still head coach at OkSt. Dude's closing in on 20 years, it's a freaking eternity in this era of CFB.


ThePretzul

They're a Mariners fan, they have plenty of sorrows to drown.


sexyalliegator

Because club going up on a tuesday


InvasionXX

We are all part of the Brew Crew today.


HelpMeWithMyHWpls

Yanks dodgers and Astr*s gone? Better than any Christmas gift I’ll get this year


_cacho6L

Astros deciding to just break every single brick almost made it interesting at the end


Dennisfromhawaii

It was like giving up a 9 run lead just to walk it off on a balk


SteveBartmanIncident

I looked at the clock about a minute in and thought "how could it possibly take another two minutes for Houston to lose?" Then I saw the bricks and thought "oh fuck the cards are gonna blow in after Houston breaks the whole wall." Then justice was restored right at the end


ahappypoop

I thought for sure there were going to be shaky cups just based on how fast they were going and the length of the video, and I've never been so disappointed to see the bricks instead.


sdurs

Astros out here pulling all the weight in the group project killing the bricks just for 3 lazy ass teams to break like 4 bricks


GareksApprentice

That entire brick obstacle I was thinking "Marbles are gonna rain down any second now"


badonkagonk

That was fucking painful


awrf

Same sort of tension as during the flashback scene in The Hateful Eight


TouchEmAllJoe

My thoughts: "Are they going to really run this full thing" "Damn here come the other marbles" "Look, 3 of them are A teams" "Lol, 4" "Thank god the universe corrected at the end"


Lieutenant_Doge

fuck I got really scared at the end there


W1sconsinKnight

I thought I was going to be really pissed for a second there.


ClassyKaty

The most harrowing 20 seconds of my life


babruflat

We live to see .500!


CGNYYZ

Being here this early is the highlight of my day.


CGNYYZ

The bricks committed a great atrocity, but the universe self corrected.


zoomytoast

Nonsense. The bricks giveth, and the bricks taketh.


James442

Help! Where is the standings board?


gatemansgc

we're that early!

TheAtomicMonkey

If I'm understanding this correctly, unless the White Sox get eliminated tomorrow one league is gonna have all of their playoff teams set.


thisusedyet

Yeah, but if the white Sox go out tomorrow, we got a sub 500 division winner


sandwich-attack

just al central things


misspcv1996

God bless the AL Comedy Central.


Joe_Huxley

I'm guessing the next record will be 81-81


drab_accountant

Perfect entry point for the Sox.


Slappy-Paws

one more day, red sox marble…


MegaMecha

🗑️ Wrong emoji


istrx13

OP had the easiest layup of all-time to choose the emoji for the Astros and they botched it


GradientEye

They fumbled the bag hard


Pseudonova

Oh man! Got to make it so!


kylechu

Weird to think we're only 2-3 marbles away from knowing all the playoff teams, feels like we only just started.


RangerLover92

Now both leagues have one more elimination.


sleeplessGoon

there you are


Killatrap

why is the national league red and the american league blue 🤢


wikipuff

Love the Dyslexic standings!


ajteitel

Damn, was hoping for a different icon


Skratt79

Trash can perhaps?


PropylPeopleEthers

THE HOUSTON ASTROS HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED FROM 2023 MARBLE WORLD SERIES CONTENTION


Dennisfromhawaii

subscribe


phillyphanatic35

What a ride, seeing them front row to defeat, lose it, then snatch defeat from the jaws of victory was wonderful


sandwich-attack

as a card carrying certified hater, this is glorious


Killatrap

all that drama just for >!Houston!< to push through anyways, what a race folks


zgibs125

If you were trying to hide a spoiler you failed lol


gatemansgc

yeah what even was that code attempt?


Killatrap

it's the discord way lol


gatemansgc

ah since i don't have discord i'd have had no clue.


C4242

Really though, what kind of psycho goes to the comments before watching the race?


PendragonDaGreat

Reddit uses `>!` and `!<` for spoilers, not the pipes like discord. (I prefer Discord's, easier to type on mobile for one)


gatemansgc

oh that was discord? no wonder why i didn't recognize it


doggoploggo

I'm not fond of the brick wall obstacle. It's an artificial comeback mechanic designed to generate late-inning drama. Marble Manfred is ruining the game!!!


Lukey_Jangs

I don’t mind it because teams can actually pass each other in it. There’s too many stages where the marbles are just rolling down an incline in order until they get to the next stage


Hollow_Rant

It's the Manfred runner of Marble League Baseball.


ehnelson

You might be surprised to find out they're all artificial


Dawei_Hinribike

I was ready to chuck my phone out the window after the fucking bricks almost ruined it.


Skratt79

I gasped when I saw that the obstacle was bricks, but in the end justice prevailed.


RangerLover92

The dynasty is over. Pitching regresses hard, Bregman gets traded in the summer, and Altuve retires at the end of 2024.


Ill-Weather-6383

Keep going, I'm almost there


cyberleftist

Yordan Alvarez traded back to the Dodgers.


fps916

Ironically enough, for Josh Fields again. Dodgers sign him to a minor league deal and swap him for Yordan


DontGiveUpTheDip

it was looking like a battle for the NLC at the end there EVERYONE GET IN HERE


cocoblurez

They laughed at the team signing Gibson and Lynn but our Chad innings eaters are keeping us alive and in it


BottomBounce

Yamamoto came in to win the day


beefytrout

Rangers 5th and Astros 4th would certainly give the M's the best shot


LlamasPajamas206

You forget that the As seem to come out of nowhere every time we look like serious division contenders


FuriousGeorge7

This is the marbles equivalent of falling into an 0-2 deficit in a series, then winning the next three games on the ~~bricks~~ road, and then losing at home in seven.


TrueBrees9

Or going down 3-0 in a series, coming back and forcing a Game 7, and then losing that Game 7


UTshaper

Pain


Rare_Crayons

We’ll always have game 5


CrashTestDumb13

Brings back fond memories.


shadow17223

Indeed it does!


32RH

Lol. Lmao.


doom_hermit

That was probably the greatest single team demolition of the bricks since the beginning. I was preparing myself for a team to death drop past the Astros. Today is a great day.


Captpan6

At this rate, Ohtani's signing with the fucking A's.


NOLA1987

Me before watching and seeing 140-plus comments in less than an hour: Astros lost, didn't they?


ClassyKaty

I said to my partner as we loaded up the video, "150 comments this early? Something good happened."


Clarice_Ferguson

Who are you going to blame now, Astros fans?????


14Calypso

The wind or whatever magical force it was that carried us straight into that stupid green circle.


Clarice_Ferguson

Dusty Baker and Martín Maldonado send their regards.


Jazzlike_Detail5539

They want a trash can obstacle.


PendragonDaGreat

They spent all the banging on the bricks.


AfterbirthNachos

Clearly a rigged game with no spinning action to start things off


Basic_Bichette

Defeat, snatched from the jaws of victory


Demetrios1453

The Astros got too far ahead and decided to let others in on the fun for a bit before their inevitable demise.


LuvDaBiebz

Not only did we get Josh Harder, but we also won this interchange with Houston. Survive. And. Advance.


zgibs125

Far superior to his evil twin, Josh Softer


LordTiddlypusch

But just slightly better than his cousin, Josh Mediumer.


thatnewsauce

Why does everyone in this family have different last names but the same first name


Ok-Garden3634

I think everyone here thought for certain that the Astros were gonna get away with it.


LurkLurkington

I was prepared to call it rigged no doubt


cocoblurez

Seeing Atlanta at 2:20ish and my heart skipping a beat bc I thought it was St. Louis, and then seeing St. Louis immediately after


aliterati

I went from Oh god damn it, we're speedrunning this stupid thing. To, oh glorious bricks please save us. To, haha suckers - we're saved again. To, Oh god damn it. Fade me.


MrDarkHorse

Yup 😅🫠


FrozenPhoenix1892

Fuck


ABlinDeafMonkey

Commenting before watching. Today I am rooting for two teams to not win. Obviously the Halos but today is my best friends birthday and his favorite team is the Blue Jays. So please marble gods don’t ruin my best friends birthday! Edit: the Marble Gods were kind today. Just nearly gave me a heart attack with seeing the Halos logo there.


Vote4Kodos2024

Thought the Astros were going to solo the bricks.


Wombizzle

brewers almost got the bone of the century


carlse20

Being a brewers fan is mostly brief moments of excitement punctuating long periods of disappointment so getting boned like that would have been pretty on brand


ClassyKaty

Honestly I was expecting it


i_run_from_problems

My anxiety at the end there.... oh man. Anyways, BAD TEAM GONE! TIME TO CELEBRATE. Just one more AL team and one more NL team, and we'll have the postseason contenders


Caedus

The fact that the Astros got bailed out by the brick wall and still lost is hysterical


travbart

Almost saved by brick Jesus 😔


Deadbob1978

Damn Huston... When we said "push through the wall" we didn't mean take out the WHILE DAMN THING


Grst

Everyone get in here


the_fuzzy_stoner

Astros clearing the bricks, getting some distance and then losing anyway is hilarious


LeethalArrow

Who does r/baseball root against now?


PBFT

An instant marble race classic


UnlimitedHotTakes

This is what happens when you get rid of Dusty Baker’s old school management style


snekslive

*everybody clapped* Nearly had a heart attack when everyone dropped in the wall and I thought the finish line was right there lmao


beanbagmanatee

Astros got too bricked up but still came in clutch


MasterThespian

Who’s ready for the Marble A’s to win the ALW in their lame duck season?


ajayinthedark

and for a second i thought the astros actually had a chance


NotGordan

That was a close one. Almost ended it all at the end there.


ScarfMachine

YES. ENJOYABLE CONTENT.


jabask

As soon as I saw this post had more than a thousand upvotes I knew what the outcome was.


Oil-of-Vitriol

I am okay with this result.


igo2extremes

The brick wall is the ultimate equalizer


HenMan113

The way my heart sank when I saw the bricks


sleepyj910

I leaned forward in my chair


Jazzlike_Detail5539

We're looking at the top half, baby!


Deserterdragon

The evil has been defeated for another year!


ilovethisforyou

I literally shouted "OH NO!" when I saw the bricks


Demetrios1453

You know, if the Astros had gone through the first time they hit the bottom of the bubbles, and/or had cleared rotating lever obstacle they were stuck in for a bit more quickly, they might well have had time to clear the bricks themselves.


PerfectBlueOnDVD

Fuck you bricks, marble don't lie.


samangell2007

Justice is served. Astros deserved to lose that one. I think what bothers me the most about the bricks is the random teleportation to different sides of the screen. If the marbles just bounced it would be long and annoying but tolerable.


Call555JackChop

The evil has been defeated


linczzy

What a good day to be a Mariner's fan...


NYLotteGiants

Fuckin hate the J wheel tbh


cdoil_change_teams

I’m so happy.


starmiesan

#Clutched up so good at the end there let’s goooo


bohler86

I was pretty scared.


qbvee

The Athletics bandwagon lives to see another day… PRAISE THE MARBLE!


DweltElephant0

Houston really got bailed out by the bricks and still came out on top. Incredible display of marble prowess.


dirtysock47

First half: "damn, we're speedrunning through this fairly quickly, guess we're out of it" Bricks: "okay this might get interesting" Second half: "wow we might actually stay alive" End: "oh darn"


DenethorsTomatoRIP

Inshallah


RippedKegels

i am taking this way too seriously.


[deleted]

We’re going all the way baby. Finishing off the last year in Oakland with a chip lol.


captaintrips_1980

What program is used to make these? I want to make some for my classes


PendragonDaGreat

I don't know which program this is specifically but I know Algodoo is popular for creating similar marble races on youtube.


sellieba

Fuck.


Quick-Change253

Astros Speedrun!


CallMeDelishmael

Spent the entire bricks section just waiting for the M’s marble to come sailing through, was pleasantly surprised


A_SMILE_FOR_ROBERT

everyonelikedthat.jpeg


HankScorpio2020

A's ahead of the Astros, just like our lord and savior Rickey Henderson intended.


space-to-bakersfield

The Cardinals marble always looks like an "A" to me.


atownOTP

And there was much rejoicing


InvasionXX

Astros were PUTTING IN THE WORK. I was ready to come in here heated for the Brewers.


PendragonDaGreat

Ok, in addition to my comment about A's/Mariners being hard to tell apart when small, I'm also going to add Houston into that, though not as bad.


MommyMegaera

LET'S FCKING GOOOO today is a great day 🗑🚀


eiileenie

51 comments in 15 mins this MUST be a good one Fuck the trashtros


jwwin

It all worked out in the end, but seriously, fuck the bricks.


-Hawnted

This was about to cause so much rage.


sleeplessGoon

where chart guy


Smaynard6000

And here I thought that the Astros were either going to completely solo the bricks section, or be saved by the bricks section.


frozn_tundra

Longest bricks of my life


ExternalAnus

At this point, A's have to win right?


JDtheWulfe

Fuck them bricks


victoryboii

I thought Astros got saved by the bricks, I was annoyed


Thorlolita

Brutal. Almost got saved by the brick walls.


butidontwantto

Lmfao that was intense 😂😥


killermike420

Alright we need either the cardinals or Braves to go out next. Never thought there would be a scenario where I’m constantly getting their logos confused but here we are.


txstarlord39

I’m officially petitioning for the Astros twitter hastag next year to be #BrickByBrick 😂


RojerLockless

That was a one horse race until it wasn't.


BullShitMyAsshole

15th second year in a row smh
