    First time ever in MLB postseason a team hit two grand slams in the same game.

It should have been a low leverage situation for Hernandez, but he turned it into a much higher tension ending than it should have been. Hopefully this knocks the rust off of him and he has command in his next outing.

    I said it during the Rays series, and it was the same in game one and tonight: when the pitchers can't seem to throw strikes to save their lives the Red Sox are going to make them pay eventually. Bad luck gave the Sox losses in both game ones but that can't last, if the Astros pitchers do the same as the Rays did and continue to let batter after batter on base then the Sox are likely to keep winning.

    The Dodgers went with a bullpen game last night, but will send Scherzer to the hill tonight.

    The Braves' only hope if for Scherzer to have one of those terribly off games. If he's at all on, the Braves are toast tonight.

The divisions should only be used for keeping teams from traveling unnecessarily far too often, after that it should just be who has the best record period.
    I'm going to start marinating my hat so that should the need arise that I do indeed have to eat it atleast it will taste good and be nice and tenderized.

    I've always found a nice lemon pepper marinade works well with hats...

    You can't really try and extrapolate regular season records in baseball, or almost any sport to automatic victory in the playoffs. They are different animals and matchups matter. Not to mention a pitcher can become unhittable and be run out for three games in a seven game series. Or some hitters become super hot. There is a reason why these games are played.

    Looks like the Dodgers are in a spot of bother after losing 5-4 to Atlanta last night to fall in an 0-2 hole. On top of that, manager Dave Roberts burned two starters (Max Scherzer and Julio Urias) and still came up short. Yikes! With Monday a travel day, I'm guessing Walker Buehler will start game three in L.A. on Tuesday in what could be a must win game.

    Well, the Dodgers have the Braves right where they want them! Now that the Braves have been lulled into a false sense of security, the Dodgers will pounce!

    Last night, Boston, to paraphrase a line from a Richard Pryor routine, wore out three pairs of kneecaps kicking Houston in the ass 12-3. The Sox hit their third grand slam of the ALCS, and that's after hitting just three during the regular season. Whoa!

    OMG I am loving this team right now even after I crapped all over them for most of the season. I was very wrong about these Red Sox and it even looks like our GM knew what he was doing at the deadline.
