    Listened to Hunter Pence on a podcast recently and he said that to be careful, likely Houston want the only team doing it, (he wasn’t accusing anyone just that it was likely) so I tempered my disgust. I also was pulling a bit for Dusty who can’t catch a break. But yeah happy for Tampa, a true group of baseball players.

    I googled Arozarena
    He’s the guy they got from the Cardinals for Matthew Liberatore
    Tampa always has made ballsy deals

    Would have enjoyed seeing Manfred hand the Stros the trophy.

    Against Atlanta, the Dodgers have got key hits against the Fresh Prince (Will Smith), Jethro Tull (Ian Anderson) and Coldplay (Chris Martin).

    I hate that I now need to root for the Rays to save me.

    Fun Game 7. The Dodgers just grind every at-bat until they get a pitch they can hammer. Betts taketh away and Bellinger delivers.

    The Braves have no one else to blame for that massive baserunning boondoggle with a one-run lead. Two runners in scoring position and no outs. There's not a Little League coach in the world who hasn't drilled into a 12-year-old's head that you don't break for the plate in that instance until the ball gets through the infield. Instead, they run themselves into a double play instead of a possible big inning.

    I've been "old man yeling at clouds" about the lack of basic fundamental baseball taught by the Tigers' system for decades. Even tougher to watch a good team screw that up so badly.

    Couldn't make it until the end of the game, but I had the feeling that was going to come back to bite them big time. It was just mind numbingly dumb baserunning.

    Exactly. Couple that with Ozuna’s gaff the prior game 3-0 is so different than 2-0, and you start to wonder what fundamentals do they follow? I hate to say this but isn’t Ron Washington the 3B ATL coach? I love that guy. Damn it makes him look awful.

    I thought about the lack of fundamentals all season. Did they not have enough time in spring training and summer camp to work on them? Hell, they should know them all ready. One practice to reaffirm. First time I saw a team need 4 throws on a rundown and end up with the pitcher chasing the runner toward home, I shook my head.

    Fundamentally sound Dodgers also had a dude thrown out at home on a grounder with the infield in. And it wasn't close.
