If Cora could stop bringing Kimbrel in for non-save situations, that'd be great.

The Cubs were the best team in the NL for most of the year and ended up not making the real playoffs. Weird.

Cubs fell apart in September. They didn't look good that last month. Not sure who will win in the NL. The Dodgers are better on paper but have underperformed all season. The Astrons/Red Sox is essentially the real WS. I can't see the NL beating either team.

10 walks, 3 hit batters, and somehow it was only a 1-run game until the 9th. The Astros hitters really kept the Sox in the game, which is frightening because they still won by five runs. And even though he ultimately wasn’t the difference, the home plate umpire sucked ass, and was literally blind on a pitch that went straight down the middle (the “strike-three pitch” to Benintendi with the bases loaded was also embarrassing).

So the Red Sox playoffs hopes rest on the arms of David “0-9 in playoffs/$217 million” Price! Can’t wait! This is sarcasm!

Good luck Jmart. The Astros never stop scoring.

Price came through tonight big time. The Red Sox are going back to the World Series. They dominated the Astros beating them 3 times at home. I think that is very impressive. Not sure if the Dodgers or Brewers can beat them.

I didn’t expect that. I thought winning one in Houston would be okay. You come back home down 2-3 but at least you’re heading back to Fenway, Two games would be a bonus against that pitching staff. But to take all three in Houston and out score the defending champs 20-9? That’s domination. What’s even kind of more amazing is that the top of the Red Sox lineup isn’t even firing on all cylinders. Betts and Benintendi were a little too quiet in the ALCS. Even Martinez although he homered last night.

I don’t want to get overly confident, but if Price has the playoff monkey off his back now and he can finally relax, then I really like their chances. Sale on 9.5 days rest, Price in Game 2, Eovaldi Game 3, Porcello Game 4, and then Sale again. Cora has managed the pitching staff beautifully.

THE RED SOX WIN THE PENNANT!

Yeah I am trying not to get too overconfident, but they dominated the second and third best teams. i guess on paper the Dodgers present the greatest challenge to Boston, but they haven't lived up to expectations much of this season.

The Red Sox did it. Even after losing that 18 inning game in game 3, they came back and won the next two in LA. This is the best Red Sox team of all time (I suppose the 1912 team is comparable). Amazing season so happy they did it.

The Red Sox beat the shit out of everyone. I think this is the tipping point where they become the villainous franchise like the Patriots

I think they are still below the Yankees. And they have to win multiple tiles in a row to become like the Patriots or Yankees for that matter.

Indians might blow up the team for “small market” reasons. I’ve been hearing this my whole life and am sick of it. Sell the team if you can’t pay for a winner. Or move everybody to New York and California. No other sport is like this. Sure the big markets still have an advantage, but they can’t just spend twice as much as everyone else.

Time to get some more green and yellow in there. But if another blue one shows up before those two, so be it. :D

I will pick the Houston Astros to win their second championship. Could be any one of the 3 AL juggernauts though.

The Indians had a pretty lousy offseason, but still have a great starting rotation and a weak division. They should make the playoffs again at least and then hopefully a few guys get hot.

Bye bye Trevor Bauer. :tears:

People around here seem to like the trade a lot, but they also loved the Kyrie trade .. at first. I was the only one saying that Isaiah Thomas wasn't that great and now I'm saying the same thing about Puig. The Indians front office typically knows what they are doing though, unlike the Cavs.

Not many things I love more than the Dodgers being eliminated from the playoffs. A yearly tradition!

Wow the Nationals lose their best hitter, squeak by the wild card game thanks to an error and now have eliminated the NL titans. Will definitely be rooting for them next series.

I haven't watched any baseball this year, but judging from their wild card and division series wins and not needing Bryce Harper, strictly based on a narrative level it seems like this is the Nationals year

This ALCS is shaping up to be a beauty. Or it could go similarly to last year and the Astros could take the next three in New York. I don’t see that happening, but they have the rotation to do it, even if the Yankees made Verlander look somewhat human.

Cole vs. Severino looks like it could be a classic.

If Greinke could just PITCH WELL then it wouldn't be a series.

Greinke didn’t pitch very well tonight but it didn’t really matter. Yankees are coming up short whenever there are men on base and it looks like this will be the end for them.
