MLB Update:

  • Game 6 does not disappoint, with plenty of spectacular plays at the plate and in the field. New York pushes Houston pretty hard, but in the bottom of the ninth, Chapman missed with a slider over the heart of the hitting zone, and that was all Altuve needed to work with. A few seconds later, his little friend went bouncing off the Schlumberger sign in left, and the Yankee closer was left standing on the mound with a forced, clenched grin on his mug. The David vs. Goliath confrontation is now officially sanctioned. #Astros #Yankees

    PS — Memo to Boone: maybe next time you show the little guy a little more respect and just put him on.

MLB Update:

  • Yankees sick Hicks on a stunned Verlander, who gives up four in the first, and the home team never looks back … preventing the bubbly Astros from celebrating a pennant in the Bronx. The series returns back to Minute Maid for what looks to be an exciting Game 6, with both bullpens ready to be emptied in raw and raucous hand to hand, no holds barred combat. #Astros #Yankees

MLB Update:

  • Hats off to the Nats, who are now within one more series victory of completing one of the most stunning turnarounds in MLB history. This is a testament to clubhouse chemistry, which this team has in spades. As for the Cards, they came up completely flat and listless/dead men walking for literally the entire four game set … which stands out as quite an exception in the rich, storied history of playoff competition for this franchise. #Cardinals #Nationals
  • Hey Yankees, it’s time for you and your unruly fans to get your act together. Throw those fans out if they dare to throw things onto the field. This is the House That Ruth Built, for god’s sake. #Yankees #Astros

MLB Update:

  • Shortstop Carlos terrorizes NYY with his bat, not just his glove, and the Astros do what they had to do and grab one back before this battle resumes in the Bronx. Of course, the Yankees will happily take a split, but this game suggests the path to the WCS will be extremely difficult if New York’s starters do not go for more than Paxton’s 2 inning stint tonight. Boone had to use too many guys to get to Chappy, and one there, he had only 1 inning to lean on the closer. After that, there wasn’t much of a security blanket, and Houston did what Houston is inclined to do … capitalize. Starting pitching for both of these teams will continue to be very important as this things moves to a probable Game 7 conclusion. #Astros #Yankees

MLB Update:

  • Gleyber gleefully gets in his whacks, leaving Zack with some major high anxiety, while Masahiro emerges as the unexpected Game 1 hero. Time for the Houston choo choo to leave the station. #Yankees #Astros
  • Things are looking pretty grim for once sassy St. Louis. Scherzer shows them the door with dazzling 7-inning one-hitter. No, this isn’t over (remember 1986 when the Red Sox won the first two at Shea and then went into the fetal position), but some major miracles will need to surface for these Cardinals if they hope to prevail. #Nationals #Cardinals

MLB Update:

  • In Game 1 of the NLCS, Anibal was balling and Doolittle was doing a lot. A 1-hitter later, the Nationals have recovered home field advantage, and in the minds of many, justice has been served (they had a better record during the regular season than the Cardinals and played in a tougher division). St. Louis has plenty of moxie and is by no means in serious trouble, but they had better find their bats soon (Washington’s big ticket starters are waiting in the wings). And what’s up with that pseudo-closer Carlos Martinez (talk about a loose cannon shooting off-target). #Nationals #Cardinals

MLB Update:

  • It’s official … the heavyweight bout we were all told was foreordained is now set in stone — Boone’s Goons vs. The Bregy Bunch. Houston comes in after being pushed a bit more than they cared to be by TB, while the Yanks cranked things up full bore against the immature Twins in a series that was nothing short of a real bore. Go with the Yankees in 7, as their superior relief pitching and hitting should overcome the Stros’ big 1,2, 3? punch + intangibles. #Rays #Astros

MLB Update:

  • Weak kneed Doyyers destroyed, in order by: (i) another gutty performance by the USS Strasburg; (ii) more fiddling and diddling with the bullpen by nervous nellie Davey (why on earth was Kershaw in there pitching to righty Rendon, let alone the batter to follow); (iii) machine gun, misfiring Joe Kelly (who was left in wayyyyyy tooooo long); and (iv) Howie Kendrick, who atoned for some fielding boo boos quite well on this Day of Atonement. Congrats to the Nats!!!!
  • Braves lay a huge egg at home, coming up completely flat against Flaherty, while St. Louis tears Foltynewicz a new one before he has time to catch his breath in an historically good top of the first. Looks like Atlanta still paying the price for all those good times it had in the fat ‘n happy days of the early-to-mid 1990s. #Braves #Cardinals

MLB Update:

  • Like clockwork, the soft underbelly of the Braves bullpen gets exposed in the 8th and punctured in the 10th. Smart money is on St. Louis in Game 5…. I think….#Rays #Astros
  • Rays extricate themselves out of that annoying orange haze and send Greinke back to Meineke for some reconstructive body work. And Charlie isn’t at all sorry for shrinking Springer, Bregy, and Tattoo Altuve down to size. #Astros #Rays
  • Facing elimination, the Nattily attired wild cards get mad, … as in Mad Max … to do their bidding, and in the process dodge elimination. #Dodgers #Nationals
  • Twins mount a token threat in the bottom of the ninth, but for the Yankees there’s absolutely nothing to fear, what with Chappy painting the upper inside corner with the perfect dog ear. That was all the Twinkie defense that New York needed. #Yankees #Twins

MLB Update:
  • Washington was cruising at home until its nagging, achilles heel came back to haunt them … shaky relief pitching. The culprit this time was Corbin, who was clearly not fresh from his most recent start in the WC game. And this was another statement game for the dominant Dodgers. #Dodgers #Nationals
  • Braves make it right after super starter Wainwright calls it a night; a very shaky Carlos Martinez looks ill-suited for the most important role of closer… what with blowing kisses and then blowing saves. #Braves #Cardinals

MLB Update:

  • Desperate for a win, the confused Twins give the Yankees a real Lyft they didn’t really even need by hiring an Uber driver to take them home to Minny with a split. You can guess the outcome…. #Twins #Yankees
  • Houston surgically separates Tampa Bay’s soul with the heavy handed hard ball rained down by big No. 2 man, Gerrit Cole. That’s all you have to know about this game. #Astros #Rays

MLB Update:

  • Stras with the premium gas lights up the Doyyers in Game 2; now things are even Stephen and Washington goes home with a psychological … and home field … advantage. #Nationals #Dodgers
  • Minnesota gets its quota of homers, but little else, and the Twin twirlers are hardly in a position to hold down LeMahieu. Bombers hardly look worried as they prepare bid bye bye to the Bomba Squad. #Twins #Yankees
  • Rays are, not surprisingly, floored, or should we say, held at bay by the first foray of Houston’s devastating 1-2-3 punch. As for the home teams offense, it’s old reliable Altuve who leads the way. #Rays #Astros
  • If Atlanta loses this series, it probably won’t be the fault of Foltynewicz, who burned through the Cards in a must-win Game 2. Braves are hopeful they can steal back home field advantage in Game 3, with their best pitcher, Soroka, slated to start. #Cardinals #Braves
