Saw on twitter this morning that Michelle Margeaux is mar-gone.

I guess she didn't want Julia re-signed

Darn, I liked her perky attitude.

The comments reminded me of this song. If you've ever played fallout 4, you've heard it. I'm sure it was quite scandalous in the 40s.

Sad she has to leave.

I'm sure this may have been posted but I don't keep up with the thread like I used to. But I'll post it in case people haven't seen it.

But the Astros were the first club in MLB history to not issue an intentional walk all season.

still annoyed that Trout is going to win MVP over Bregman.

107 wins and the #1 seed with a sh*t ton of injuries including our SS who Bregman replaced.

The numbers are close enough to where that should be the deciding factor if you just use common sense.

The angels are a terrible team with or without Trout. How is that value?

The Astros are not the #1 seed and honestly might not be the division champs without Bregman.



I get it. Trout's numbers are truly insane for the amount of time he played. And I know we are biased. But it should be Bregman IMO.

Where can I find the TV time-slots listed for the playoffs?

From what I've heard there is a 1pm and 3pm slot on Friday?

I don't think it has been announced yet, but based on last years times it will likely be the early afternoon slot on FS1

Based on looking at my cable guide the FS1 early games are both at 3. IDK if that's real or not.

in the past, they've come out tuesday after season ends.

the time slots last year were:

1:00
3:15
6:40
7:30


100% chance Dodgers are two of those last two and Yankees 90% chance get the other night game.

I think MLB slots Astros first, then Braves-Cardinals.

The time slots last year looked like this actually:

Quote:


Friday, Oct. 5:
Indians vs. Astros (Game 1): 2:05 p.m., TBS
Cubs/Rockies vs. Brewers (Game 1): 4:15 p.m., FS1
Yankees/Athletics vs. Red Sox (Game 1): 7:32 p.m., TBS
Braves vs. Dodgers (Game 1): 9:37 p.m., FS1

With Dodgers back in, I bet there will be another super late game for them.

those are eastern times. I put central. the location of vast majority of posters here.

and game 1 of braves/dodgers and the last time is wrong. It started 538 local, 738 central, 838 eastern.

Nuke LaLoosh - 108 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Farmer1906 - 99

Wabs - 99
agproducer - 98
Marvin - 96
Frok - 95
I believe I said the only way we wouldn't win 100 is if we wrapped up the division super early and just started resting guys. Before the season started, I thought we'd literally have the division won by the end of August. Freaking A's.

Correct, those are eastern times. For the dodgers game, that's what I get for trusting the internet I guess.

he put eastern times. And last year the leagues were on the flipped networks.

Yeah looking back it seems FS1 and TBS flip flop NL and AL series each year.

I really want us to have the ~3:00 start time on Friday. Gives time to get out of the office, have lunch and a few beers and get to the game. Then can be home at a normal hour and watch the late games from my sofa.

FWIW if you go to the FS1 website and click on their schedule they don't have 1pm blocked but they do have 3pm blocked for postseason baseball, so I think its a pretty safe bet we play at 3pm.

That's what I'm hoping. I can likely cut out of work early and catch most of the game if it's at that time. 1pm not so much.

So I have Fubo TV and they show FS1 4k events which the ALCS will be one.

Can't wait.

TBS has 4pm and 7:30pm blocked for MLB playoffs. So if each schedule is correct the full Friday schedule of time slots looks like this:

ALDS - FS1 - 3pm
NLDS - TBS - 4pm
ALDS - FS1 doesn't have a time slot reserved for this yet?
NLDS - TBS - 7:30pm

Seems like the networks would break up the early afternoon games more than an hour

TBS shows baseball at 4 pm, but not a 1 pm. I think its a safe bet nothing is set yet.

Have they set the playoff roster yet?
What are we supposed to do until Friday afternoon? This is going to be a long a$$ week.

They'll probably want to have CC workout a few days to confirm he's ready. If not, then he might get left off.

Hinch probably won't officially set the ALDS roster until they know which Wild Card team they are playing. Also this is a big week for Correa to prove he is ready to play.

Spend a couple days going back and forth on start times (check)
I'm sure they'll be a solid Reddick v Tucker debate here shortly
Same goes for a Trout v Bregman debate
Talk about how much we miss Charlie Morton
Post gold luck pre-playoff teets

That should get us to the WC game on Wed

So I've looked at the #s and I think I'm ready to cast my Cy Young vote...

And the winner is... Gerrit Cole.

Ultimately, what swung my vote is limited balls being hit (more K%) and the type of contact once it was put in play (lower hard hit%, higher soft hit%). This led to JV allowing all those HRs and why Cole has the clear edge in FIP & xFIP. Its much closer, but Cole also has the edge in xwOBA too.

We can watch the WC & NL games. I think statcast is doing the ESPN2 broadcast. I would recommend it.
