BREGTOBER is here!

Quote:

"Just things that add to a culture of playing 162 games you can't fake, you can't pretend," Hinch said. "It's part of your DNA or not. He's as authentic as a baseball player as I've ever been around and as likable as anybody on our team. The other side probably feels a little differently. He plays with a little chip on his shoulder that irritates some people. I love that about him, and he owns it and doesn't run from it."

What makes October so special for Bregman is everything is so magnified.

"It's a style of baseball that you play to win," Bregman said. "You do that during the season, of course. But it's just magnified, the winning aspect. All that matters is winning. Nothing else. Win at all cost. That's why I love playing the game."

I'm going to assume since he's a year older he will surpass last year's run-of-the-mill ALDS in which he hit .556, slugged 1.333 and had an OPS of 2.048.

Thought this was strange. Fangraphs must think Houston matches up worse vs TB than Oakland

I'll say this - the Rays pitching staff at full potential is a lot scarier than the A's.

However, with Glasnow and Snell still ramping up after injuries, that's far from a given

everybody knows the Astros rake against team's aces. It's the 5+ era guys that shut us down.

Guarantee Reddick will be there tomorrow unless there is a complication with his wife and twins.

Here's hoping she is very far along her pregnancy, our twins were micro-preemies and the rest of your life just stops for a while

congrats to Reddick and his wife on their twins. As a father of almost 2 yr old twins they are a blessing and super fun. Also glad to hear how big they were born and that they shouldn't be in NICU any longer.

He should be good to go now since he won't have that worry on his mind. I echo that statement above about having preemies. Everything in your word stops

Not to derail, but how many weeks were yours born at? And congrats, it just gets more and more fun. My girls are 7-1/2 and the best part of every day.

couldn't tell you exact number of weeks, about a month and a half early though. one was 4 lb 10 ounces the other 4 lb 6 ounces??? something like that. In NICU for bout a month. In all reality they were "big" considering some of the other babies in there with us. Very blessed

Interesting note on Astros-Rays pitching matchups courtesy of the Starting 9 podcast...

G1) Astros start a former Cy Young winner and Rays counter with a former Pittsburgh Pirate
G2) Rays start a former Cy Young winner and Astros counter with a former Pittsburgh Pirate
