    I cannot believe we did it. So pumped. Now we get to figure out the Rays insane pitching and heart. Not sure how much MUSTARD we will have after that series. 1 off day.

    Speaking of championship cities..

    The Boston Celtics, Red Sox, and Patriots hadn't won a championship since '86, '18, and never respectively.

    Tom Brady arrives and they collectively win 11 championships in 20 years.

    The Tampa Lightning, Rays, and Buccs have only won championships in '04, never, and '02 respectively, and nothing in 16 years since.

    Brady arrives and they get already get an immediate Stanley Cup, a World Series berth, aannndd.. well, we'll see.

    Tom Talisman.

    Can't forget Boston Bruins who were 1972 before winning in 2011.

    Really though it's the Red Sox and Patriots who hold the balance of those 11 championships.

    Wow, totally blanked on the Bruins. Thanks, yo.

    Not a hockey follower but the Stanley Cup was recent with Tampa's win.

    The Dodger almost have to win this series. They built and bought another championship team and to lose out again would be embarrassing.

    Kershaw has a lot riding on this as well. For one of the generational greats he has completely stunk it up in the post season. A dominant performance would just help cement his greatness but with his track record of getting hurt I am not sure he can pull it out.

    Kershaw and Betts make as much as the entire Rays team.

    For that reason alone, let’s go Rays.

    I can't bring myself to root for the Rays because they represent so much of what is wrong with today's game. Using the defensive shift too much, and regularly using "openers" instead of starting pitchers.

    So unsurprisingly Manfred says he wants continue expansion of the postseason.. and I don't disagree.

    16 teams is too much but I think a 12 team playoff format would be fun. Two wildcard matchups per league with two byes for the best two records in each league.

    Strong disagree. But I went into this season not liking the DH in the NL and I like it now.

    Don't know if I'll ever come around on expanded playoffs though. This season it made sense so I delt with it but going forward I'm not a fan.

    And if they even think of keeping the goofy "extra innings starts with a guy on 2nd" shit I will...well I'll bitch and moan is what I'll do.

    I'm usually pretty conservative about these kinds of things. I don't like the additional playoff teams in football for instance.

    But I think baseball may be the exception. There's kind of a sweet spot for not losing the regular season and keeping a playoff race hot. I think the NFL has had it down for years now, with 37.5% getting a playoff berth, and hence my not wanting it to change. I think the NBA is a bit ridiculous with over half the league - 53% - making the postseason. And finally MLB is on the low end with only 30% of teams getting through.

    12 teams would bump that to 40%, which is at kind of the arbitrary threshold I'm getting at. Enough that the regular season doesn't become a joke and we don't see fluke championship runs, but also enough that a late playoff push includes more than a couple markets and the playoffs themselves have a full opening round building to a hot LDS and LCS, etc.

    Probably won't convince you, and I totally get that, just figured I'd type it all out for whatever. I honestly think it'd be pretty effin fun.

    all these boston people/media complaining about how much the Red Sox bungled it, and it's true, but whatever. to me that story is already old and it's just needless dirt rubbing in wounds, or woe-is-me boston fandom mentality popping back up. Mookie's in the world series. I love Mookie. Enjoy baseball. enjoy watching him. We won the world series 2 fucking years ago, and if not for some of those other financial burdens that prevented us from signing Mookie we might not have that 2018 title. it is what it is.

    And no this isn't the Babe Ruth deal all over again because baseball is a bit different than it was in 1920 so quit with that comparison.

    (this was not directed at you just at all the sulking I see on red sox/boston sports twitter)

    No worries, Fro. As a Yankee fan, I am glad Mookie is no longer in our division. As a baseball fan, I am happy to see him in the league.

    I'm a Knicks "fan," what is this postseason you speak of?

    Not necessarily but I'm flapping in the wind here to try and say something nice.

    Do you live close at all to Brooklyn?
