I don't think the Yanks are toast. Nobody can predict injuries. Wasn't their fault. Haven't heard anything about it but if I was in there shoes, I would go after Hamels.

As in "done for the season". They've got a great young squad, they just need to plug some holes in the offseason.

Gotcha. Yeah they lost. Tough to win 100 games and not even get to the Championship Series.

Speaking of, who does everyone like in the two series? I like Houston and Milwaukee. Wouldn't shock me if Boston moved on though. Actually, it wouldn't surprise me whoever gets to the World Series.

I guess if I had a rooting interest I would pick the Brewers. Never won it so why not?

I'm a Brewers fan, so I'm pretty excited. The number of playoff series they've had in my lifetime is pretty low. The Dodgers are the popular pick since they were there last season, but the Brewers are pretty hot. That's why they play the games...

Not really pulling for either AL team, but I dislike the Sox and wouldn't mind seeing their season done. Not a lot of people talking about the defending Rastros, they could totally repeat. These are 4 incredibly good teams.

The constant pitching changes are annoying me. Over four hours for the game last night.

There's a Seawolves team up here, but Erie SeaWolves are legit -- this one's political
HS team was called Rebels, under 'political' (read brainless) pressure they switched it to Wolves (even w/the majority telling em to leave Rebels alone)
A nearby HS is the Seahorses, so when football teams merged......the cliched boring shallow politically-manufactured hybrid Seawolves

winning 2 down there won't be as easy as in Bronx (It Wasn't Easy, only recently recovered from final inning of final game there, OMG)
same thing tho, "'stros siezed homefield!", but it didn't mean anything against NY -- forget the apple, that was the big Enchilada beating them (NY)

but houston isn't WS titlist for nothing, they're super -- like us, their winningest team ever -- 2nd best in MLB -- meantime Chris tries to get sprung from hospital (stomach ailment) -- both he & Craig weren't on top of it really in 2nd half of season -- Craig has given up runs in his last 3 outings

But Ya, SAWX -- no telling what's ahead -- thought it was Rick tmrw nite, I guess it's Eovaldi -- he pitched good his last turn

CHIEF WAHOO LIVES -- no political talking heads change that for bball fans who love the Tribe, esp older fans

3-0 is correct; heading into the bottom of the first

Never seen two great pitchers less able to perform on the big stage. Kershaw is probably the best pitcher since Pedro/Big Unit/Maddux. But in October he vanishes, Price is not in the same category; but an excellent pitcher who disappears completely.

However, law of averages began to swing in David's favor in last start

We Need To Reset Our Rotation --
with Chris going no more than 3-4 IP in his remaining appearances, Stack The Back End --
A fresh rested relaxed Chris Sale is more valuable coming in the 6th inning w/a 4-2 lead, than at the start -- setting em up for Craig, or mayb Sale himself coming in the 7th-8th inning to finish, is a sound adjustment, if he's willing/able to buy in -- that lefty-righty tandem at the end of games would be grim for the opposition

Chris was lights out earlier & a top Cy candidate at All Star break -- the "mild shoulder inflammation" has had more than enough time to heal -- he's pitched great for us & the competitive fire has to kick in at some point -- he's outta the hospital, hopefully en route back to midseason form,at least long enough for a few Chris-type innings in this most crucial time of year that they all say they play for

PCBob's squad Brewin up a potent pilsener in the Beer City alright -- would like to see Milwaukee win -- let's go Sox

Yeah, Brewers are looking good, all the talk of them wearing out their bullpen seems like chatter. They took the LA crowd out of it early last night (while the Packers were laying on a dramatic finish against SF). See if they can steal another one tonight.

The Dodgers HAVE to win tonight. Gonzalez vs. Hill should be a good match up.

X2 -- Gio should be ready to have a good game, he got a new lease on life going to Mil from Wash & hopefully is dialed in -- Rich Hill a Good P too, was hoping we'd keep him when he was here -- 2 solid vets

Well, Gio didn't last long, but the bullpen held for another FIVE HOURS. That's almost 3AM here in EST. I like free baseball, but my eyes haven't quite opened yet this morning. Brewers had plenty of chances against the Dodgers' bullpen with the top of the order squandering it a couple times in extra innings. Well, both teams did, it was just a matter of time until somebody got a ball past the infield.

Meanwhile Machado is becoming Machadoaboutsomething dirty. Two questionable flailing slides in Game 3, and now trying to kick Aguilar in the ankle. Wonder if the league will discipline him, last night's kick at first was pretty flagrant.

Not sure what to make of that play. Guess you could spin that any way you want to. It does kind of look like Machado took a swipe at him but the first baseman probably should have been off the base when it happened anyway. He was already out so get off of the bag.

I used to ump games for years and one time something similar happened. There was a play at the plate and the catcher was standing on the plate. Runner comes around third and plows into the catcher.

Catcher didn't have the ball. The runner can run home. I almost had a riot but that was the rule.

Wasn't like the Buster Posey rule.

Well, the two of them made up, so I'm not too torn up about it. But Aguilar was hardly hogging the bag and Machado definitely looked down and dragged his foot at Aguilar. Bizarre, since at least the two slides possibly gained his team an advantage.

But hey, Machado was the last one over home plate which is what matters.

Bad time for Brewers bats to go quiet. You just can't keep stranding runners and expect to move on.

Meanwhile, Altuve has got to be pretty pissed with some Astros fans, though I think Mookie would have caught it. It's hard to not want to grab an object flying hundreds of feet in your direction but just let it drop!

There is an interesting piece on Yahoo Sports today about how that Mchado play might affect his marketability as a free agent this year. Questioning it really. I kind of doubt it will matter. It's not like he was Marichal taking a bat to someone's head.

In other news, Verlander better have his big boy pants on tonight!

Who would have bet on Price over Verlander this in a game this season? But that's how good the Sox are this year. I think the real world series was Sox-Yankees. Which ever team gets the NL pennant is going to be a huge underdog.

I don't think Machado's nonsense will greatly affect his offseason pay day - lots of teams that would love a chance to get a meager fine in the playoffs.

Brewers have to win tonight. Wheels came off last game. Hopefully home field advantage has some, well, advantage.

Yeah I hate to admit it but Boston is SO good. Even Bradley has his head out of his butt and is playing well. Sure hope Milwaukee wins out. Won't care for a Boston/ L.A. series.
