Not sure why but the Dodger loss last night made me feel better about tonight's game. I'm not sure if it's because the odds of both the favored Dodgers AND favored Astros going down to an underdog is less and maybe it increases our odds of winning this one tonight.

Or

If we do go down tonight at least we won't won't be the only favored club being labeled chokers.

Like I sad Dodgers losing last night had a strange calming effect. Not sure exactly why. Weird.


That Dodgers line was much smaller than ours. Probably won't make you feel any better, but just saying.

Not saying I'm content with winning just 1 WS, but had we not won in 2017, I would be a wreck today.


I tell my kids this all the time: there are generations of fans that have lived and died and never saw their team win a WS. Red Sox fans until 2004, Cubs fans between 1908 and 2016, Indians fans under 70 years old, Rangers fans, Mariners fans, etc. They got to experience and enjoy something most Americans never do: their hometown team winning it all.

And then they go back to YouTube.

On a hr ball that crosses the fence line, can you then mess with the outfielders glove if he reaches over??

Yes, unless fat ass Joe West is the umpire making the call. In which case he will rule from 200 feet away that the ball didn't get into the seats.

Spacing out the lefties also prevents TB from bringing in a lefty in the later innings to face Brantley, walk Bregman, and face Alvarez.

Just a reminder that tonight is 0.6% of an MLB regular season. That's so terrifying.

Jerry Meals Strike Zone (from 2018)



It looks like he doesn't call the high or inside strike for right-handed batters or low and inside for left-handed batters. Not the best news for COle, but it might help out Brantley & Alvarez.

Meals was also the chief when Ron Kulpa decided he can do whatever he wanted.

That heat map is definitely not something favoring a RH pitcher. At least its not random like West of Bucknor

Won't matter when they're all swinging and missing.

Correa says they want to be aggressive against the Rays' pitchers since they aren't walking many guys. Also says there isn't any pressure and his back feels good.

The R & L refers to the batter.

you should call in and ask what time the Rangers game is tonight because you don't want to miss it

Then I'm reading it backwards. The low and away to RH batters favors Cole's slider.

I have to be honest with some of his swings last game, I can't imagine there isn't some back issues. Yes, he has fielded great, but some of the swings have looked like issues. I hope to eat my words.
