I don't see why McCullers makes the post season roster.

I think today you saw he won't.

And most of the time the budget airlines get to their destination.

Most budget airlines in other parts of the world are better than the standard US airlines.  Unless you're in Russia, in which case there might be urine running down the aisle.  But the budget airlines in Asia are excellent.  At least the ones I've flown. 
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

Bottom of 5 with one out, men on first and second. Tony Sipp pitching.

Moreland batting..  foul,  double steal, gapper to left center.. Benentendi and Betts score...

Ramirez gets walked.

Devers 1-1, 1-2, strikes out looking on an inside belt-high fastball.   2 out

Sipp out, Hoyt in...

0 -5 Boston.

Honestly, I'd be more concerned about my hotel bed.

Post season pitching.  You don't get a few shots against scrubs.  Get used to it.

It's stunning how fast this offense can flip the switch from godlike to pathetic and back.
Hopefully the four day break (five counting the likely spring training B game tomorrow) before the playoffs will let them reset.

Most Americans don't realize just how far behind the world US airlines and airports are.

Hoyt the third pitcher of the inning...

men on first and second

Vazquez , 0-1, grounds to Bregman at third who steps on the bag for the third out.

0 -5 Boston after 5.

Time to go to work boys.

Something about momentum and tomorrow's starting pitcher...

In other news, I wonder how much bitching there will be from the Yankees and the media about the Astros using this game as a rehab start for an injured pitcher...

Fisher hustles out of the box that time, he has his second hit.

About ten years ago I was in Port Moresby waiting on a flight in the terminal and watching some guys working on Fokker 100.  They were on a EWP working on a jet with the cover removed and they were close enough I could see them pretty well. seemed like they were unsure wtf was up, a lot pointing and apparent dscussion, at one point they both stood up and were stand there scratchng their heads looking at this fuckin engine.   I looked at my boarding pass and checked, I am flying out on a Boeing, praise the lord.

You guys getting the Target ad that looks like it was made in the 50s and colorized?   Or is that just my perception?
