    I have money on the dodgers. Sorry approx



  • @Kcmatt7 then you should root for the Nats so you’re a winner no matter what happens !



  • Sorry I’m not rooting for either the Dodgers or the Nats lol. - -you already know my Yankees I do root for.

    None of our rooting is going to matter anyways , think none of our teams are just not going to beat the Astros with that Pitching staff they have - - just insane , And lately they have been hitting a lot better too - -not a good combo for others – they don’t need much run support when you have a staff like that



  • @approxinfinity You forgot the " G " in nats.



  • @jayballer73 I’ve heard so much about the Astros but I haven’t watched them recently.

    Shouldnt Yankees fans root against their most successful crosstown rival, the Brooklyn Dingdongs?! Sorry, not sorry, Mets fans.

    lmao - -well right now the one’s I have to root against - -starts tonight those little twinke’s - -we don’t take care of business against them we don’t have to worry about it lol. - - Getting Severino back was huge for us - -looks really good give us 5 innings with our bullpen we in good shape



  • MLB is awful. I went to more games than ever this year. Watched more baseball than ever. 11,000 fewer balls put in play over the course of a season compared to 2008 is what I just heard. Stupid MLB thinks winding the ball tighter will improve the game. So strikeouts rise and the game is increasingly becoming a 2 outcome game, longball or a K. No playoff games on their premier network Fox until at least the later stages of the League Championship Series. The year the hated Cubs were playing the Dodgers to go to the World Series, you know a pretty historical event, on a Saturday night Fox shows Kansas-TCU football. Cubs Dodgers were on FS1 and I had to try explain to my poor mom how to find the game on her TV because she couldn’t find it. 4 games yesterday averaged 3:30 in length. No extra innings. @approxinfinity Dodgers-Nats game required 3:37 to score all of 6 runs total. Dodgers strike out 17 times in one game. Bob Costas on MLB network calling the Twins-Yankees game lamenting that the Yankees will could have to beat 3 100 win teams to win the world series, while the exact same thing is true for the Twins. Twins fans are mad as Hades. I could go on and on, like MLB games do these days.

    My rooting interests this round are Nats because of @approxinfinity, Cardinals because it will make the cubs upset, Twins because no one wants the hated Yankees to win another world series, and Houston. Next year the White Sox will be in the conversation.

    ummm I’m not a no one and I want the Yankees to win ANOTHER world series. - - I agree just like the Yankees and Twins last night -dam game took I believe 4 hours - -4 stinking hours - just to long. You have to be a true fan to stick with something like that.

    I thought they were trying to speed the game up. - - I know from playing the game for many , many years myself - - -and as I was a Pitcher I truly understand I really do.

    there is to much other/ then the true action - - -things like how many times a batter will call time - - - how many times a pitcher steps off the mound or throws to 1st with a runner on - - pitcher/catcher conversations - -it’s nuts - -I thought they was going to put some kind of time restriction on this mound meetings and such - -the game is just to long.

    And your right about the ball. - - The Yankees just set the record for home runs like 2-3 years ago> - -at 267 - -they said last night that I believe 6 teams broke that record this year - - -with Minnesota leading at 307 & the Yankees at 306 - -that’s not helping things - -I don’t know. - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • @jayballer73 You’re right, you’re not a no one, so I amend my statement, "Other than Jayballer73 RockChalkAllDayLong no one wants the yankees to win other than Fox and people in NY!

    UMMMM – - WRONG - - - AGAIN LMAO



  • Go Yankees! A Dodger v Yankees World series will bring in the most viewers than any other combo. I’d like to see them meet up for the first time since the '80s.



  • Not a Yankee fan. The epic Yankees v Royals showdowns in the mid-seventies made an indelible impression. That said, I agree Yankees vs Dodgers has some historic lure.

    This is a problem though. The Dodgers are going to lose to the Nationals and you’d think by the announcers bias that they aren’t even playing a competitive game. I’d rather see the teams who draw the least ratings win to say 🖕 to the 💰 machine.



  • @approxinfinity I agree. THink back to the TTech Virginia final with Auburn and some other new team there. It was really enjoyable since my teams couldn’t be there.



  • @wissox I guess it was Michigan St at that final 4 so there was one blueblood still there but Tech shoved them out of the dance.



  • average playoff game has lasted 3:31 and generally they’ve been low scoring affairs. zzzzzzz



  • I mean sure I fell asleep last game until the 9th, but I wouldn’t have if the game didn’t start at 930. That part plus the 4 hour length is double the problem.

    Don’t understand why we can’t have both games at same time. I think you lose more viewers because of the late time than you gain from having the games back to back. If the stats don’t bear that out then I think the stats are short sighted. Sure, the immediate stats might show a bump for the night. But anyone wondering why there is attrition and apathy toward the sport has allowed themselves to be completely numb to the quality of the product.

    This generation of ratings uber alles has in large part thrown intuition out the window.



  • Still only 2 sub 3 hour playoff games. There’s been twice as many 4 hour games. MLB is too stupid to realize that when your premier games require fans to watch for 4 hours nearly every day that those fans, unless they’re diehards of the teams playing, are not going to stay up late, or spend fall afternoons for 4 hours watching baseball.



  • SHOUT IT WITH ME NOW!!!

    BEAT L.A!!! BEAT L.A!!! BEAT L.A!!! BEAT L.A!!!



  • @approxinfinity BEAT LA!! BEAT LA!!!



  • Strasburg has never been sharper than his last 2 outings. Filthy and under control. Let’s hope he can tap into that a little bit more.

    Walker Buehler needs a warm glass of humility.

    is that some kind of new catchy song ? lol - - - - BEAT LA - -BEAT LA - - - has some snap to it lol



  • Howie Kendrick!!! Gonna go to bed, don’t want to jinx the team, but wow, what a comeback!



  • @wissox woooooooooooooooooooo



  • Say it isn’t sooo lol. – Hell I went to bed when it was 3-1 - -LA - -happy for ya - -next series gonna be a good one. - -These playoffs have been kind of crazy

    My Yankees close out Minnesota in 3 AT Minnesota. - - your Nats - -win their series in 5 AT LA - - & - St Louis wins their series in 5 AT Atlanta. - -all visiting teams wrapped their series up at the other teams home field - - Now all Tampa has to do is win game 5 at Houston - - -ROCK CHALK ALL DAY LONG BABY



  • Hoping for TB so we can stay east coast and my kids can watch.



  • Dominating pitching!

    You really just hate to see the Cards struggling like this… Just hate it…

    😀



  • I don’t hate it!



  • The Nats are the team of destiny… Until they arent!



  • approxinfinity said:

    They’re playing the Cardinals, so I’m rooting for them.

    Nothing I’d like to see more than an Astros-Nationals World Series, if for no other reason than that means the Yankees and Cardinals both lost.



  • @BShark I’m not a Cards fan, just a Cards admirer.

    @justanotherfan I too am hoping for Astros-Nationals. Dynamic pitching matchup it seems.
