I hope not.
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

Astros get a leadoff baserunner, who is immediately erased on a double play on the next pitch...groundout into the shift ends the inning

Ball was well struck, but like everything else this Postseason, just died in the air.

Brantley hit a lazy fly ball to center for out 3.  First LOBster of the night.

The comment was issued after Springer's AB. Also, "a lot" is not the same as "all".

He made a great throw last night. He seems like a burgeoning, twenty-one year old talent.

In Smoltz's defense, that's not really what he said. He said that the way Yuli covers the area around 1st reminds him of the way Pujols used to cover the area when he was young.

I'm really hating the double plays.
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.

I guess you have to have baserunners to hit into double plays, so it’s kinda good, right?

Could his 3 for 5 night, 2-run HR, production be due in part that he has not been sitting on the bench b/t innings?
Just wondering....

Unwelcomed developments.

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.

Depending on his demeanor, I’m sending him out to start the 8th with the pen ready. Aj may disagree.

I think he's gassed. His command is slipping. I think AJ will thank him for getting us to the 8th and hand it over to Pressly.

Which is why he sucked so bad all season.

This is what I was talking about: HR drought.

Quote
After launching 27 home runs during his rookie season, Yordan Alvarez had gone 21 consecutive games without hitting a ball out of the park. It was the longest streak of his short career, and he snapped it on Sunday night.

Nice work, Joe...now let's bat for a while...
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.

Springer looked so bad on the first pitch, but he does that so often just before hitting one on the screws.

If it makes you feel any better, I yelled "get the fuck out!"  on contact, and my dog basically punched me in the back of the head in his haste to get away from the yelling lunatic sitting next to him.

Cole had zero interest in that milquetoast interview post-game.

Now, if we can get a win at home... that would be nice.

It's certainly not a certainty. All we can do is hold our breath and eat more Frito pie.

That may be the wrong order for those two.

3 runs allowed in 3 games.

The pitching staff (and Strom) were so strong in Washington.

That's enough road wins. Time for the home team to win one.

The Nationals rehearsed the trophy presentation.

The BBGs were watching.

Let’s stay humble before the BBGs.

But that trophy isn’t getting presented in Washington.

This being the entire point.  The only way the trophy presentation happens in DC is if the Nats win 2 up there.

Excellent!
Glad to see it acknowledged.
Love of baseball can/should unite us, not divide us.
Excellence should be acknowledged and celebrated.

We Americans desperately need to follow their example by being able to differ politically in a civil way as well, rather than acting like Yankee fans.....
Nothing worthwhile comes without pain, ask any Astros fan.

Yes.  Everything about that song is fucking awful.  I didn't know it existed until the postseason, and I can only assume that last game is the last time I'll ever hear it.

I never heard of it until the WS. I can see how it's catchy if you're under age 5.
