Edwards is good, but his walk rate is way too high. Just a matter of time before it backfires.

Not yet. Never count someone out against the Nats pen.

Cleveland scores 2, but Robertson comes in and gets a clutch DP.

I agree, he'll be pitching lights out and then just lose command.

Breakthrough in the top of the 9th. 5-2 Yanks. What an AB by Gardner.

Congrats, Yankees. Never expected the Indians to be out so soon.

Yanks pulled off the 0-2 comeback. I'm stunned. This team is building like the 1990's Yanks. So excited about this team.

Re: 2017 MLB Playoffs, Division Series Edition

They were talking on one of those studio shows on MLB Network last night, should they make the LCS a 5 game series again? (they changed it to best of 7 in 1985). Because of the advent of the bullpen in the past 15-20 years, the game has changed and so have 5 games series. Even though I am a baseball purist, these series have been wildly entertaining because of the constant pitching changes, and it seems like every Manager manages each game like it's Game 5. In a 7 game series, the Manager is more apt to start making these type of moves later in the series, but in a 5 game series they are playing to win in Game 1 and will make any move possible. I know that reducing the LCS to 5 games loses the networks TV money (that is why it will never happen), but I have to say that I think it would be a compelling 2 weeks of the DS and LCS if they were both 5 game series, and the World Series stayed at 7 games. Plus it would keep the World Series from spilling into November because you could start it a few days earlier.

Re: 2017 MLB Playoffs, Division Series Edition

That was a great ALDS. Yankees showed that they can come up big time and again. Indians shot themselves in the foot big time with all those errors this series but it was good to see the Yankees take advantage of those opportunities. Didi stole the show but it was Gardners AB in the 9th that was the clutch moment of the game.

On to Houston. The top two run scoring teams in the league, this series is going to be a light show. Should be a fun one.

Re: 2017 MLB Playoffs, Division Series Edition

Happy it's the Yankees. That bullpen is scary and a clear advantage for them, but we have: better offense, better starting pitching, and home field advantage.

World Series bound!

Re: 2017 MLB Playoffs, Division Series Edition

I wish the Cubs could've closed it out, but the game should be exciting (unless it's a blowout). It'd be disappointing to lose this series in come-from-ahead fashion after winning nearly everything come-from-behind last year, but that's baseball.

There had been talk of Jake wanting a Strasburg-like contract, but the contrast between the two was sobering yesterday. He didn't give up any earned runs, but all the walks and only lasting four innings did hurt. I get that he's been injured and probably lost some sharpness because of it, and he seemed to have plenty of stuff, but that'll be the risk for anyone who signs a pitcher in his 30s to a long-term contract, even in as great shape as he's in.

All the errors by the Cubs have been a surprise, even though they weren't as good defensively this year as they were last year. It's very possible tonight's game could again swing on something small as nearly all the games could've gone either way.

Re: 2017 MLB Playoffs, Division Series Edition

My interest in baseball is pretty low generally, but with Cleveland and Boston eliminated and the Cubs on the edge of extinction, I'm running out of teams to actively root against. Here's my updated "rooting interest" flowchart.

I wouldn't mind a Nats/ Astros WS, then we'd have a rare series between teams without a title

The Indians had their best chance to win it all.


Sucks ass they lost.

The MLB is having pre-cum thinking about the possibility of a Yankees vs Cubs World Series.

Even if the Cubs get past the Nats tonight I don't see them getting past LA.

You don't think a Dodgers/Yankees WS would move the needle?

I assume that's what FOX wants. They wanted the Cubs until they finally won.

Could have been disaster. Dusty should be warming up Scherzer now.
