Post Season Thread Anyone?

Are my eyes deceiving me, or are the Dodger batters engaging in gamesmanship with all the timeouts they keep calling at the plate?

If Houston hangs on, who figures to be MVP? I think Springer has a strong case.

I'd give it to Springer. Although it really was a team win. Every time it seemed as if they'd fold they stormed back. All I kept thinking was how much better they'd have been with Brach. And how wild it was that Verlander ended up on a World Series team after having been traded in the 11th hour.

The O's are like a Double-A farm club compared to the really good teams.

Three more to go for Houston. Keuchel and Verlander will be on full alert for the ninth.

Cody Bellinger in the Series: 4-for-28 with 17 strikeouts. Give that man (an O's) contract!

If the Astros can't hold a 4 run lead heading into the 9th they don't deserve to win.

I'll take him. He would've had the best OPS on the team by almost 100 points. And losing the World Series would be an improvement for me! I've only seen them lose the ALCS.

And it's a wrap!

(And my nephew, who lives in Houston, had something going with some store there that if the Astros won the WS he'd get his $5,000.00 bed for free. Looks like he got his $5,000.00 bed for free!)

You saw a home run hitting, high strike out team lose to team that consistently put the ball in play and rarely struck out.

Charlie Morton had a helluva Series as well. For a guy who's been on the DL nine times in his career, he looked like Iron Man McGinnity.

Houston only had two guys--Springer and McCann--with more than 100 strikeouts this season. The Astros did, however, hit more homeruns this year than the Dodgers.

The visitors have now won Game 7 of the Series three of the past four years, which is pretty amazing considering that until the Giants did it in 2014, the last team to do so was the 1979 Pirates.

Congrats Houston 

Kinda nice to see a organization make it to the top by building 

The Braves did this in the 1990's and are doing it again. Glad for Houston!

Geez, this Charlie Morton was good in the Series.  Didn't realize he had such a good regular season.  14-7, 3,62, 1.19 WHIP.  Guy pitched 4 stinkin games in 2016, but Stros gave him a much criticized 2yr.14mil deal.  Looks like a steal now.  I'm sure this is the kind of bargain bin home run the O's will be looking for in 2018.
