Morton's start in New York. Yankees got all kinds of bases on weak contact. One was a blooper to left that should have been playable, but Maybin just let it drop in front of him.
Oh that. And Springer dove for and whiffed on a line drive that almost lost us a WS game. Do we dislike him for that as well?

George was forgiven when he blew up the train track on his next at bat.

So should Maybin be forgiven for getting himself on base ahead of George's dinger in WS game 2.

Just thought I caught something on the radio

Is Correa's back hurting him again?

I'm writing this and knocking on wood, so don't get mad......but.....purely hypthetical.....should a team win tonight and another un-named team on the west coast playing much later lose (don't blow this Arlington!!!!!!)......does the team that won and therefore clinched the division stick around and have champagne to celebrate - or would they go home and do it the next day regardless of a win or loss - or just skip it all together?

I know we don't really have room, but I miss Maybin. Sucks even more that he's with the Yankers now.
Why do you miss Maybin?

He seemed like a cool dude/good teammate who could hit homeruns and made hustle plays. Like I said, we have a lot of those, so there isn't really room. I just hate seeing him play for the Yanks.

These last few games feel like Spring Training. Seems it's taking forever to finish up the season.

Hurry up and get these done and let's move on to what really matters.

Last year they had a mini-celebration at a hotel ballroom, and the champagne spraying celebration the next day after losing in toronto

I want to watch them celebrate on the Minute Maid infield. If that means rooting for Oakland tonight, I can handle that.

Just a heads up, I think the presale for playoffs will take place this Monday the 23rd. Season ticket holders at 9am w/ a 4 ticket limit per game, and then the lottery folks an hour or two later would be my guess.

Have they done the lottery drawing and notified winners yet?

I don't believe so. I just know the season ticket holders were emailed today about the 9am presale on Monday. In the past they usually do the lottery the same day but a later time.

I'm really surprised at this. They looked like a great mix of youth and experience before the season.

On the other hand, there's a lot of love for the Rockies, who have spectacularly underperformed expectations.

On pregame Hinch just said we will see Pressly tonight regardless of score. We may see Peacock on Sunday - his bullpen session yesterday went "really well." Correa is in the lineup tonight and tomorrow, off Sunday.

I know Hinch is doing what he does to rest guys but there are 4 off days between the last game of the season and the start of the ALDS. Rest when you clinch home field

Nobody needs a bunch of rest with the way the Schedule played out and the blow out games this last month. Plus injuries during the year.

Guys chill. We're playing the Angels who've already packed it in.

We should roll with whatever lineup we wanna roll out there

4th player with 30 bombs on the team. Yordan has a slim chance to make it 5 with a strong finish
