It was a very...optimistic move keeping Lester in. Odds were very good that it wouldn't work out with as many deep hits he was giving up. A sac fly in that scenario vs. Granderson was virtually guaranteed.

What I really hated was the two batters in front of Schwarber swinging for the fences and refusing to work the count. Had even one managed to get on, this could be a very different game. A solo shot was not what they needed.

DC sports are fucking cursed. There's a reason I only follow two of those teams.



keep it ambiguous.



Oh.
For the record, I was targeting the obnoxious ESPN article that declared the Nationals the NL Champs since March, before any games were played, not you or any other particular fan, certainly not you specifically

It's all good. Wish I'd said something earlier so I wouldn't have spent the season irritated about something for no reason.

I just started seeing a girl who has a pair of tickets to every Blue Jays home playoff game and was promised that if they make the WS I've got my name on at least the first two games here.

Weren't the BJ's down 2-0 to Texas?


I hate these prime time games. Especially on the weekends. Meanwhile, Daniel Murphy is on fire.

Those are some good series. Happy that one long suffering fan base gets to celebrate in November.

Yes, that's definitely a good thing, although one team has been infinitely suffering it seems.

Last World Championships:

Toronto- 1993

NY- 1986

KC- 1985

Chicago- ...1908

Welp, it was fun while it lasted.

Arietta = Kershaw

See you next year.

Don't blame Arrieta for everything that happened. 4 runs is a pretty average turnout and if that's all they're giving up, they should have a chance in most games. Problem is:

The Mets are pitching extremely well and the Cubs are refusing to work the count once they get behind because they're in panic mode. There have been some really awful ABs the past two games.

It's not all over, but they need to get some walks and really pressure their starters. There haven't even been jams to work out of because they keep hitting solo shots and popups.

Possible Cy Young winner with the year he was having shouldn't be giving up anything. Even 2 runs would have been a let down.

There's no way they win this with Arietta playing subpar. This was supposed to be their lock game.

I can't sit back and see posts like that.

There's no such thing as a lock game in baseball, and you can't ride someone that long, on that many innings, with that much pressure, with no run support and expect him to keep winning games.

Cubs are getting destroyed by BABIP. I'm hoping they do better in the warmer weather, but the cold wasn't an excuse for the Mets.

Whatever happens, it's been a great year, but seriously, do NOT put this on Arrieta. The guy is 2-1 in the post season, even if the second and third starts haven't been great.

A lot of blame should go on Montero. I love the guy, but he should have nailed a runner at 3rd yesterday AND today, and he didn't. In general I think he's a great catcher behind the plate, but he double-clutches his throws to the bags and when he does, he doesn't get the out. If only we could have a catcher with Montero's BA and Ross' defense. That's one of the things to look for in the off-season, IMO, after another starter, obviously.

Anyways, slinking back out of here, now.

Laz historically has pretty poor sports opinions. Don't sweat it.
