I won't forgive Girardi for that fuck up, but it's difficult to say whether they would have finished things today if the series had been tied 1-1. Francona would have approached these games differently.

Anyways, pretty happy with sending the series back to Cleveland. Tanaka and Sevy were fantastic. It's a shame Dellin remains so unstable, but the bullpen trinity of Green/Robertson/Chapman will be well rested, and they can have Gray available if CC doesn't have it.

I might be wrong, but I don't think the Astros' pitching can hold up to any of these two teams.

A Cubs/Yankees or Dodgers/Yankees World Series would be great from a baseball history standpoint. And for ratings too, I'm sure.

They've got a 1-2 punch of Verlander and Keuchel at the top of the rotation, and their lineup is stacked, so don't overlook them.
Verlander went 5-0 with a 1.06 ERA in his 5 starts after the trade. 43 K's in 34 IP. Looks like 2011 Verlander.

Strasburg pitching 7 scoreless after the media shit on him was one of the most badass things I've seen on a baseball field. The guy significantly improved his legacy in one game.

Will the franchise as a whole? I doubt it. This team has seen enough game 5 NLDS collapses to trust they'll sack up and accomplish anything when it matters most. But game 4 was pretty awesome.

I pegged Cleveland for the World Series this season. Especially after their record breaking winning streak.


So many asshole Yankee fans out there calling for Girardi to be fired after his "mistake". Never thinking once of who could possibly replace the guy. Thankfully, the Yankees won and shut that shit down...for now.

Dodgers/Astros please, for the love of God. I can't take obnoxious Yankee bandwagon nation, plus another postseason of casuals pretending they've been long-suffering Cubs fans all their lives. The celebrity "fan" circus, the feelgood stories about old people clinging to life to experience a World Series. What a fucking nightmare.

Also, fuck the Nats. They're not even worth analysis at this point. Just choking losers whose own fear compounds with each passing opportunity.

That was an ugly game, on both sides, really. Don't forget the Cubs were choking losers themselves for a long time. Things can change.

Yeah, the Braves lost the NLDS five years out of six and four times in a row at one point (they've lost their last six NLDS attempts), despite stellar pitching, so it's not like our level of playoff failure is unprecedented for the sport.

I could have been a Cubs fan, so easily. Hell, I'm a diehard Blackhawks fan and they've given me the only real pride I've had as a sports fan. But I just had to see that stupid, amazing Stephen Strasburg debut when I was impressionable. Oh well. Rest assured I'll be ready for more suffering and misery when the time comes.

To be fair, Girardi is awful.
