Astros about to close out Tribe.

10-2 in 8th.

Pretty good choice at +250 (to win AL)

If you can get Astros +250 jump on it. I suspect thats an old #.

I would expect them to be favorites against either Sox or Ys to win the ALCS

And the easy 2nd guess was why was Severino pitching in the 4th, he had nothing last night.

And Booney's is rightly catching heat for the late hook on Severino and his choice to put out fire with the gas of Lynn.

I think when all is said and done a baseball manager really has one thing to do: knowing when to pull a pitcher. 

On the other hand I can't get too worked up about Boone messing that up if the Yankees are going to make Eovaldi look like Cy Young anyway.

Hey Banks -

Notice any posts making fun of Benintendi tonight?

Nope crickets.

With all due respect to Brockstar, 10D had the AB of the night.

Now that's a rejoinder Red State Ward would envy.

Brief, meaningless, and largely irrelevant to the discussion. 

Most baseball fans, pundits, kibbitzers, basically anyone with an understanding of the game, understand the 2nd guess as a part of the baseball experience.

But for reasons unknown, you don't.

I firmly believe Cleveland will become the first team to come back from an 0 - 3 deficit in an ALDS.

They have the skipper with the experience and temperment to do it.

In 1975 the Phillies were 7 out with 6 to go.  Danny Ozark insisted the Phillies still had a chance.

Graceless.

Still haven't won anything, douchebags.

Duh.

My comment has nothing to do with having won the series and everything to do with a certain person's anti-10D obsession. (It is less pervasive than your Boston Obssession Syndrome, but still too present.)

Love those NY Giants, too.
