MLB Update:

  • Buccos recover their cool, riding a wave of tasty pitching by rookie Kuhl and lighting up Anderson with a 5-run 1st. ‪#‎Pirates‬ ‪#‎Dodgers‬
  • Cards look Oh so poised, as they fight back for a critical Sunday night victory over the surprised Cubbies. #Cubs #Cardinals
  • Huge late inning rally by O’s exposes the Giants’ achilles heel … shoddy relief pitching, including a now 2-4 closer. ‪#‎Orioles‬ ‪#‎Giants‬
  • Seattle has come from seemingly out of nowhere to catch Houston in the AL West, and now sets its sights on slumping Texas. ‪#‎Rangers‬ ‪#‎Mariners
  • Blessed with a huge lead in the AL West, the Rangers’ biggest challenger may not be the team adjacent to them in the standings, but rather complacency. ‪#‎Rangers‬ ‪#‎Tigers‬
  • CO win column blackout continues in Philadelphia, despite some impressive hitting from Blackmon. ‪#‎Rockies‬ ‪#‎Phillies‬
  • Nationals continue to excel at the national pastime, while it seems nothing can save the Braves. ‪#‎Nationals‬ ‪#‎Braves‬
  • Red Sox get more than a few healthy hacks in against Zack, ringing up the AZ stopper for a ton of runs, including dingers galore for Betts. #RedSox #Diamondbacks
  • Marlins manufacture a big win against CWS and Sale, scratching out some critical late inning runs with timely hitting and snuffing out the tying run with a huge throw to the plate by Yelich. ‪#‎Marlins‬ ‪#‎WhiteSox‬
  • Reeling Mets pick themselves off the mat after great game by Matz. ‪#‎Mets‬ ‪#‎Padres‬
  • Nightmarish season continues for Angels; another perfectly scripted collapse, this time by Weaver. ‪#‎Indians‬ ‪#‎Angels‬
  • Stros pitchers can’t figure out how to tip toe around Tulo. ‪#‎Jays‬ ‪#‎Astros‬
  • Yankees do a bad job keeping light-hitting Tampa Bay at bay. ‪#‎Yankees‬ ‪#‎Rays‬
  • No excuse for the defending world champs to lose to the Twins… so they don’t

  • Florimon picks Pirates off the deck in the 15th with a monster triple. ‪#‎Pirates‬ ‪#‎Diamondbacks‬
  • Melvin gives the Padres a bit power upgrade. ‪#‎Padres‬ ‪#‎Braves
  • Oakland wins another game, just to prove that they’re still dangerous. ‪#‎Athletics‬ ‪#‎Dodgers
  • The team that used to play at the Stick can still flip the switch; bad news for the Cards when Giants Bumgarner picks up the stick. ‪#‎Giants‬ ‪#‎Cardinals‬
  • Nationals find their offensive legs in the thin air of CO. ‪#‎Rockies‬ ‪#‎Nationals‬
  • Solid effort by Houston strengthens their hold on first in AL West; Marwin is key to Astros’ win. ‪#‎Astros‬ ‪#‎Rays‬
  • Seattle slows down the Rangers behind Iwakuma. ‪#‎Mariners‬ ‪#‎Rangers
  • Kinsler turns killer in Chicago. ‪#‎Tigers‬ ‪#‎Cubs‬
  • Cin’s Chapman commits sin by trying to curve one in, when he should have just thrown the hard cheese. Royals tie it in the ninth and, as usual, win things in extra innings.
  • Red Sox Shaw puts on a hitting exhibition that really sticks in the Indians’ craw. ‪#‎RedSox‬ ‪#‎Indians‬
  • Toronto’s prospects look pretty posh with all that production from Josh. ‪#‎BlueJays‬ ‪#‎Phillies‬
  • With deGrom and Granderson in such fine form, perhaps the Mets aren’t suffering from delusions of grandeur. ‪#‎Mets‬ ‪#‎Orioles‬
  • A-rod continues to be a lightning rod when it comes to lighting into pitches with the bases loaded. No. 25 slams the Twins. ‪#‎Twins‬ ‪#‎Yankees‬

10-24 Royals 2 10-24 Royals 3 10-24 Royals

In pivotal Game 3:

  • Instead of getting all choked up, the Kauffman kids show up in hostile territory with absolutely no fear and really stick it to the ex-Candlestickers.
  • Bochy doesn’t want to give off an air of desperation … hence his choice to play the Vogelsong in Game 4. But this may be a bad move, as keeping Mad Bum on the bench for even one unnecessary day may be too too long.

For Game 3 in hostile territory, does KC need more defense ….or more hitting?

10-23 Royals 5

Seems more like the latter, so don’t they have to find a place in the field for Billy Butler (first base?/move Hosmer to right?). What seems clear to ChabDog is that the Royals need to avoid playing from behind in SF; they’ll need 4-5 runs minimum to have a decent chance for winning, given the less dominating starters they throw out there for Games 3 and 4, and the fact that they’ll be playing in pressure cooker by the Bay.
