ChabDog’s MLB Update — October 27 (Playoffs, World Series):

  • Cash gets badly burned when he rather routinely yanks ace Snell and reaches into his stash of over-used relievers; Dodgers then erupt for three humongous scores and never look back, grabbing their 8th World Title and first in 38 long years. Congratulations to LA, on its second pro sports title in succession! #Dodgers #Rays

  • Charlie says sorry … but no dice … to Houston’s hopes for a return to the World Series. Morton may never have been better, and just a little bit of offensive pop was all they needed to dispose of the trash cans. #Astros #Rays
  • Re-dedicated Dodgers do early damage at the plate, and are saved on defense when Buehler? Buehler? Buehler? answers the bell with one hell of a start. On to Game 7. #Dodgers #Braves

ChabDog’s MLB Update — October 16 (Playoffs, Championship Series Round):

  • Somebody had to step up for the Dodgers, and slugging Seager was quite the eager beaver. As for Will Smith, one had a game to remember, and one, a game to forget.  And that brings us to Betts, whose shoestring catch and efficient delivery home saved a run and earned some much needed momentum. It’s 3-2, and Atlanta is now rubber-necking out of real fear. #Dodgers #Braves
  • Sinking Rays put their trust in Charlie Morton’s sinker, and are probably praying for some hard-to-find offense in tomorrow’s Game 7. They took their eyes off the prize, and now they’ve got a suffocating orange haze to deal with. Altuve and friends have awoken, and they smell blood in the Bay. #Astros #Rays

ChabDog’s MLB Update — October 15 (Playoffs, Championship Series Round):

  • And the headline read, “Dodgers still chasing their balls, come playoff time”.
  • Quite an eye opener of a start by rookie/relative unknown Bryse, while herky jerky Kershy goes into his usual October swoon after some destructive swings by Ozuna, Acuna and ferocious Freddie Freeman. It appears time for the 1000 pound gorillas to crawl meekly back into their man caves and hibernate for the offseason. How humiliating for the .700 + clubbers. #Braves #Dodgers
  • Rays had better not get complacent. Astros have been there, done that, and are licking their chops for a Game 7. Tampa Bay needs to put Houston away once and for all on Friday, when their ace takes the mound. No more screwing around with this dwindling series advantage. #Astros #Rays

ChabDog’s MLB Update — October 14 (Playoffs, Championship Series Round):

  • Dodgers pile on Kyle, the top of the first lasts more than a while, and Braves perfect post season record is perfectly defiled. #Dodgers #Braves
  • TB should get some Flex Seal right kwik, as their their defensive fortress has definitely sprung a leak … thanks in large part to slugger Springer. #Astros #Rays

ChabDog’s MLB Update, Recap and Perspectives — October 13 (Playoffs, Championship Series Round) (click twice for Belichick):

ChabDog’s MLB Update (Playoffs, Championship Series Round):

  • Rays continue to go out and get it … making sparkling plays in the field and coming up with the timely hits that create action on the scoreboard. As for the Astros, they’re mired in a protracted hitting slump, getting little to nothing from Springer, Correa, Gurriel and Breggy. As for Altuve, he’s lately looking a lot like the second coming of Steve Sax. Good lord, that was a psycho throw into the dirt tonight, which botched a double play and opened the floodgates. A sweep looks imminent. #Rays #Astros
  • Braves continue to show they’re not slaves to Dodger domination. Freddie Freeman is showcasing his considerable prowess from the plate, and a host of other young stars are taking Petco Park by storm. The Dodgers won’t weather this swing in momentum if they come out like LA’s lambs to start Game 3. Yes, it’s put up or shut up for the prohibitive favorites. #Braves #Dodgers

ChabDog’s MLB Update — October 12 (Playoffs, Championship Series Round):

  • Braves take heart in the exploits of their friend Fried, who stifles the Doyyers on 4 hits over 6, and rise to jubilation when Riley stains Treinen by reigning in a fat fastball. #Braves #Dodgers
  • More miracles from Margot, are you kidding, and ex-Stro Morton silences his former mates with that stinking sinker. What now, Dusty? #Rays #Astros

ChabDog’s MLB Update — October 7 (Playoffs, Divisional Round) (click twice to hear about a Road Trip):

  • Pads stretch the Dodgers to the limit, but come up tantalizingly short when Cody barely keeps a Tatis clout from going out. #Padres #Dodgers
  • A’s find putting themselves into the backs-against-the-wall, now-or-never stage was exactly what the doctor order. Perhaps this talented group is finally starting to believe in themselves. There’s a big, dusty cloud of uncertainty still to overcome, but at least Oakland has gotten up off the mat and engaging itself. #Athletics #Astros
  • There’s a ring of fire around blazing hot Ray Randy Arozarena, and the Yankees just got scalded … again. #Rays #Yankees
  • For the 2nd night in a row, the Bravos were just a bit better, with furious vengeance visited on the visitor’s pitching by Travis d’Arnaud and Dansby “Move Over” Swanson. #Marlins #Braves

ChabDog’s MLB Update — October 6 (Playoffs, Divisional Round):

  • Padres lose starter Clevinger early, and then throw the kitchen sink at the Dodgers … the problem was that among the 8 pitchers used, there was simply no stopper. Some might say, that if the Dodgers don’t win with this ridiculously talented lineup… they’ll never win one again. #Padres #Dodgers
  • After getting shelled in the Game 1, the Rays pushed back hard, both from the mound and the plate, including a ton of punch outs and a quartet of homers. If the Yankees thought advancing would be a walk in the park, they were sorely mistaken. #Yankees #Rays
  • Two more dingers from Springer, and the A’s are on the edge of extinction once again. #Astros #Athletics
  • Hotlanta puts an abrupt halt to Marlin momentum, torching the fresh fish for 1/2 a dozen in a searing 7th. #Marlns #Braves

ChabDog’s MLB Update:

  • Could it be that the Yankees are ready to make the Rays their obedient pets at Petco Park? Cole outdueled Snell, and NYY’s big bats did the necessary talking, with Giancarlo’s ninth inning slam making the biggest statement. #Yankees #Rays
  • Astros continue to sandbag their competition, returning to last year’s form with a thorough bashing of the aimless A’s. Don’t count on an abrupt about face, like we saw against the jittery Chisox. #Astros #Athletics

ChabDog’s MLB Update– October 2 (Playoffs, Wildcard Round):

  • Marlins rip the Cubbies a new one after Kipnis whiffs, and Yu-lose-again Darvish goes down once again in the playoffs in somewhat spectacular fashion somewhere in the vicinity of the Great Lakes … ala the Edmund Fitzgerald. #Cubs #Marlns
  • No stammering by Stammen and his other pitcher-by-committee members, who hold the Cardinals to 4 tiny hits, and SD’s superior offense does the rest. Justice served with this result; the Padres had the much better year, and they deserve to move on. #Padres #Cardinals

ChabDog’s MLB Update (Playoffs, Wildcard Round):

  • No no, … Willpower Myers, ferocious Fernando and the rest of the sacrilegious Padres won’t be satisfied with the status quo and letting the greedy Cardinals gobble up yet another playoff win. San Diego wins a slugfest and takes this mini-series to the fabled rubber game. Go Pads!!!!
  • Dodgers end the drama with Brewers without any fanfare, but with a message sent by Clayton that opposing hitters beware. And the addition of Mookie Betts has many wagering that smart money for the WCS title resides with the Dodgers. #Brewers #Dodgers
  • Not ready for playoff time Reds get their walking papers … too bad they didn’t bet to many walks from the Brave pitchers. #Braves #Brewers
