    I kind of wanted to Asterisks to win so the yoyers could get another shot at them. The theatrics would've been great.

    No way. Beating them would have been amazing, but I can only imagine how awful that would have gone. The umps would be wound super tight so we couldn't even think about pitching inside. The Astros leaned into being the bad guys and saying that it was them against the world. That shit would have been sooo fucking terrible to put up with.

    1 year ago I would agree with you wholeheartedly.
    But I don't have the same emotional/live or die connection to the Dodgers as I used to...
    ...so I'm speaking from a pure entertainment standpoint.

    Losing the insane highs I used to get off playoff moments (Joc, Uribe, Loney) is a little saddening but I get to avoid the agonizing lows I used to feel.
    Definitely a trade off.

    In some circles, they call that bi-polar.

    I'm not going to go looking for it, but I can only imagine that Atlanta sports radio talk shows are being brutally unkind about some of the screw ups by Snitker & the Braves players in this series.

    Like ...

    Why groove a fastball to Kike when all he really does is crush lefties who throw that pitch in that location?

    Why did Riley stop between 2nd & 3rd during that rundown? Isn't that a Little League drill?

    And will Acuña feel the heat for going ice cold in this series? Will they be kind because he's a kid or will they tear into him because he jumps higher in celebration in the dugout than he reaches base successfully on the field?

    For a change, it wasn't the Dodgers who shit the bed. I don't know what to do with myself this week. But I'm sure they'll give me reason to complain in the next couple of days.

    • Baseball America named Tony Gonsolin their MLB Rookie Of The Year. Overall of the top performing rookies, they felt he was the most consistent and he showed enough that they now think he has star upside. They considered May for it as well, but his inability to miss bats has them worried about his upside going forward.
    • On October 12th, the Dodgers joined only the 2013 Cardinals in having 4 pitchers throw 98 MPH or higher in the same game.

    Yeah, he got off to such a hot start that the press will probably go with that and just ignore that he was abysmal the day the calendar flipped to September. This was one reason why they moved off of him. Also like I mentioned, they think Gonsolin has better upside long term.
