In the AL, the two clear best teams are the Yankees and Astros, and both are slight favorites to get the sweep on Monday.

In the NL, it looks like the two best teams might be the Dodgers and Nationals. Tied 1-1 and today's game 3 is a tossup according to Vegas. (Dodgers -105)

Osuna can't handle the playoffs. He was garbage last year against Boston, and he was garbage tonight.


I'm no the biggest Osuna fan obvi, but that's on Hinch. Shoulda went Harris after the 8th. No more multiple innings for osuna. Glad we won while learning that.


It's also like we forget the Kenny G experience. Kenny G out there is giving the game away after the first two hits. At least Osuna still battled and competed. A couple of small things go his way and he's out of it.

Again, he still didn't get the job done, but I don't think it's as bad as it's being made out to be.


Giles would've melted down on national TV and choked himself on the way back to the locker room

I'd put TB after Dodgers & Nats rotation.

But TB MUCH better than anyone we could/will face in AL


TB probably has the best bullpen of anyone, except perhaps the Yankees. Nats bullpen is atrocious, Dodgers bullpen is one of their weaknesses.

I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

I think I am 5-1 since 2015. It gets a little foggier before that. I think I went 3-1 or 2-2 in 04-05 (I was there for Pujols-Lidge). We couldnt afford late 90s tickets.

I got selected. Anybody have any idea on face value prices for ALCS? Normally they release all the prices beforehand

You'll get a code Tuesday morning. You log into the ticket system and experience the frustrating queue times. You pick up to four tickets per home game and can get whatever is available.

Can I give my mom the presale info and can she log in with her own account? I got picked, she didn't, and of course purchase time is the one date & time this week I have a meeting I can't reschedule.

I think the code is tied to your MLB account but I can't confirm that.

2017 was my year to be undefeated, I think it was 21 games or something that year. Hopefully yours continues!

thinking back to last night's game...that's why the Rays were the preferred opponent.

the 'stros were very vulnerable in the 8th & 9th innings, but Tampa just didn't have the firepower at the plate to make the Astros pay. Oakland with Semien, Chapman, and Olson might have fared better

Oakland might have been down eight runs at that point.

Not really apples and oranges.

Snell is a Cy Young winner and I'm not even sure who the As #2 starter is.

I think we'd have been up by way more than just 3.

Tampa's pitching is very underrated. They have last years Cy Young and CFM, plus a good bull pen. They are a couple bats away from being a top contender

That was probably the longest 9 inning game I've watched, drained. Cole was a BAMF yesterday, he brought it, he's on a new level this season. Hinch should not have put Osuna out there in the 8th, he should know better, don't do that with your closer. Harris saved us, good man. After games 1 and 2 Greinke has seen Verlander and Cole at their best, they are setting the bar high, want him to bring it for game 3.

Ump at home called a fairly odd strike zone last night. We need to settle down and take more pitches, not enough walks. Tucker is way too amped, swinging at everything, he's young in a big moment. Lots to learn from last night.

Weren't they the #1 in team era in the AL? That says a lot especially with all the injuries they had

Not selected, again. I'm o'fer the last two years. I gotta be hitting a statistical improbability at this point.

Went last night with my lotto tickets and will be going Saturday night as I won again. Last night was crazy. Cole was so locked in. Took my son to his first playoff game. Loved it.

I hate not knowing the times of the games yet for the ALCS. It seems like those would be set already regardless of who is playing who. I'm going to be buying tickets not knowing if I can even go to games 1 or 2 (assuming the Astros finish off the Rays...I am not being presumptive baseball gods; pleas don't smite our team!).
