Every year I LOVE the MLB post season more and more.

I'm going all in on the Astros this year. I hope that their model is something my own franchise is on its way to emulating.

Los Angeles is on its way after the only sweep of the divisional round. thu

The Astros are on their way too.

In the meantime, the Yankees have forced a Game 5 with Indians...

Best,

Geoff

Nats have to win today to force game 5 or they are out. Pitching has been fine, offence has been silent except for game 2.

I'm not much a baseball viewer any longer but I do read about baseball and listen to radio. I live in MA and hope the Red Sox fire John Farrell.

Your wish is their command...

Once again the world learns that you never count out the New York Yankees. There's magic in the pinstripes. It's the greatest franchise in sports.

DAMN that was the longest in playoff history?! 5 hours it was pretty insane. Didn't know it was a record breaker. I watched the first 2.5 hours then went to a fun social activity with my wife. We were leaving that activity of a couple hours and I was amazed to see they were in the bottom of the 9th still. Great game.

I'm beginning to wonder if I was right about that longest game stat. It has mysteriously vanished from ESPN's main page.

Edit: A Google search reveals that the longest playoff game in MLB history was three years ago. It lasted 18 innings:

Giants, Nats battle in longest playoff game in history

Perhaps tonight's game was the longest nine-inning contest? In any case, sorry for my mistake.

Best,

Geoff

Boy, Dallas Keuchel was tough last night. But I also thought he benefitted from an expanded strike zone below the knees. He didn't get a few of those calls early. It seemed the umpire adjusted.

It was the longest 9-inning post-season game in history.

The Dodgers are going to be a tough competitor for the Cubs. Hopefully they can prevail. And if not, hopefully the Dodgers can beat the Astros or Yankees.

Turner's walk-off HR is 29 years to the day:


I can still recall the gig I was at when he hit it and people went crazy.

I can too, although I was listening to it on the radio on my way to my gig in Industry Hills at that moment. What an iconic home run in LA sports!

Thanks for sharing that, Dave. Great memory of Kirk Gibson from the Lasorda era. thu

May the Dodgers have similar luck this year.

Best,

Geoff

I saw this fist pump, and Jeffrey Leonard's 'one flap down' home run trot for S.F. as being a turning point for MLB, in that it marked the end of the retaliation pitch for showing up the pitcher. Gibson never received even so much as a brushback pitch for his histrionics. I thought he should have been drilled in the back. But I'm a purist.

Before the season started, did anyone think that CC Sabathia would win a game in this year's American League Championship Series?

At 6-0, the Dodgers set a franchise record tonight for the most consecutive postseason wins. thu

Is it fair to say they've got their mojo back?

Best,

Geoff

I'd say I'm not surprised, in the same way I wouldn't be surprised if Bartolo Colon stepped up with a big game. Gamers at heart, with a lot of pride.

I can't be the only one here who has a tough time coming to grips with the Houston Astros being in the AMERICAN League playoffs.
Took me a decade to quit thinking the Brewers were still in the American League, and now this. And then tear the Olde English "D" off of Justin Verlander, why don't you.
As the best moptop once sang, "Strange days indeed. Most peculiar, mama..."

Astros? You mean the Colt .45s? Oh yeah, that's right. They changed their name to the Astros. wink

Yep, times change. Their more recent NL to AL transition is still a little hard to get used to.

Best,

Geoff

We're coming up on the 1 year anniversary of perhaps the greatest Tweet ever, from Verlander's girlfriend, supermodel Kate Upton. Hilarious, and definitely NSFW!
