2019 MLB Playoffs thread

Recommended Posts

Well, since CFB is essentially over for me before the end of September, I can focus my limited attention on baseball.

Sure would seem like we are headed for a Astros v Dodgers reprise WS, but baseball is baseball, so who knows?  Frankly, really kinda hoping someone in the AL can knock them out, as they are clearly the biggest obstacle to claiming our first World Series title in 31 years.

Are they seriously going to wait until after the WC games to announce game times?  I have to start planning when I'm going to ditch work now!

Why is TBS such a bitch about start times?  If Milwaukee wins the WC game then the Thursday @Dodgers starts an hour later and Friday is 10 minutes later

Lots of love yesterday on MLB network for the Nationals to win it all.  Most think Minnie takes out the Yankees.

I was watching. Thome is out of his mind. I like Scherzer against anyone in a one and done playoff, but then beating the Dodgers? Not likely.

Twins have a scary lineup. That doesn’t change the fact that they’ve been the Yankees’ bottom bitch in the playoffs every time they’ve met. Yanks in 4. Yankees in 7 over the Astros in the ALCS, then Yankees in 6 over the Dodgers for title 28.

Yeah really only Thome seemed to be the main Twins supporter and uhhh he played there. 

Most of the ex players didn't have LAD getting to the WS though, which I tend to agree with.  I think ATL or St Louis takes them out.

Astros over Dodgers in 6 where Tyler White makes the final out via strikeout whilst chewing six pieces of gum.

Even if LA sweeps the Nats, this has been a special season. Really fun to watch the turnaround after 50 games. 

I don't see a sweep.  Not with that staff.  Fortunately 2 of their 3 aces are righties, and we are stronger from the left side.  But if Corbin wins game one, watch out.

Maybe I missed something, but I can't find a year since 2009 that the division series went straight chalk.

Having said that...

I have trouble seeing Tampa even win a game against JV, Cole, Grienke.

WAS is not going to beat the Dodgers.

Helobius isn't right often, but his "Twins are the Yankees' bottom bitch" is pretty accurate.  

That leaves STL-ATL?  Works for me.

Your game 1 starter for the Dodgers. Kershaw, one of the greatest pitchers of this generation? Nope. Ryu, a strong NLCY candidate? Nope. Buehler? Buehler? Yep. Roberts has lost his fucking mind.

That certainly not the safe pick...
He must have good numbers against the Phillies/ that style of lineup

What? I don’t understand. Kershaw Friday then and Ryu in DC? WAS is pitching their best available tonight. What is the thinking @Sbbruin

Poor dodgers are only -175 with Burhler tonight.

Not that the odds mean anything.

I would have really thought Ryu would go in game 2 as he is MUCH better at home.  But Ferris Bueller was rock solid last night, so good call by Robert on that one.

D-Roberts is the leader in the clubhouse as far as managerial decisions go thus far.  That also feels very odd to type....

214 wins between the Astros and Dodgers, and they both have one game to save their seasons.

Thank goodness we have the clown show 5 game series format.  Heaven forbid the post season get extended 2 games.  Players and fans might freeze to death.

FWIW, the league championship series was best of five until 1985.

I don’t see how anyone can be watching the playoffs and not see that the Yankees are the best team. They fucking annihilated a 100 game winner.

You really are a complete dipshit. On one hand you swear sweeping the Twins is inevitable because they piss down their legs at the sight of your front running adopted team then you come around crowning yourself as being the best team in baseball for doing the inevitable. You can't have it both ways numbnuts.

I guess a short bus commuter like yourself sees it that way. 
The Yankees will inevitably win the World Series this year, because they have demonstrated that they are the best team. Will winning it all then not be impressive, because it was inevitable? It can be both.

If the nationals score early, you will be able to hear a pin drop in that ball park. They’re waiting for something like this to happen. I’m not as worried about that happening in Houston (especially not with Cole on the mound), but tomorrow should be interesting.

This is why people think you’re a jackass.  You’ll have thoughtful contributions (occasionally) and then throw this shit out there.  You’re applying the results of a short series as evidence of their superiority, taking no other factors into consideration.  It renders all of your opinions irrelevant.
