    I am just glad that I tested negative already so that I know I have not been able to spread it around. Will just suck being in the basement. The good news is my client was able to talk his way into a rapid test. He had only been able to get the one that gets results back in 4-5 days, so that is why I was on lockdown. Should know around 7 now if this is legit or not.

    NEWS: Max Muncy was struck in the face by a ground ball he attempted to field during infield practice before #WorldSeries

    Game 1. He walked calmly to the clubhouse for treatment by #Dodgers

    If we play at the level we are capable of, this legit should be a sweep or 5 game series at most. This is the worst offense we have faced since the Brewers series and while their pitching is somewhat stacked in the bullpen, their rotation has not been able to deliver and that bullpen has not faired as well against LHH heavy lineups. A completely depleted Astros team gave them a fight to the end. That team didn't have close to the pitching that we have and only a couple of their bats did much of anything at any point in this post season. This Rays team got to this point on the ball flying out of Petco. It will not be doing the same thing in Arlington. Inexcusable for us to lose this thing.

    Kind of funny to look around the web and see the amount of folks that are rooting for us. Most cite the Astros fucking us over in 2017 and wanting to see Kershaw get one. I really like the people that are specifically rooting against the Rays due to their owner refusing to spend any money on the club.

    Call me simple, but no matter how good the Rays may be, they are still the Rays. I can't bring myself to be scared of the Tampa Bay Rays.

    Some interesting bits from 538
    • This is the 5th most lopsided World Series matchup since 1969 according to their rating system(ELO). Of the 4 ahead of us only one was an upset (90 Reds).
    • Based on that rating system, this is the 9th time since 85 that the #1 and #2 teams have faced each other in the WS. The last 3 have been won by the #1 after a stretch of 4 matchups where the #2 had won. These series have ended 4-0 (4 times), 4-2 (Twice), 4-3 (Twice).
    • This is the largest gap in payroll rankings since the last expansion(25 Spots). The largest before this (Yanks-Marlins) was the only one in the top 10 where the higher payroll did not win. That Marlins team was also loaded with a future HOF'er and a true Cy Young pitcher just showing up.
    • The Dodgers chances of winning the series are near 70%
    • With all that said.... This is historically one of the best matchups in World Series history based on just how good both teams are. How can that be after the first bullet point? This Dodgers team was rated as one of the greatest teams ever so their score was so high that it made for a large difference in scoring, but this Rays club was also rated very well so it helped carry the cumulative scores up to #13 all time. The 2018 Dodgers-Sox was #6.
    What does this all mean? Nothing, you still need to go out and win the fucking games, but the Dodgers chances of winning are good. Just play like we can and bring home that trophy!

    does anyone know if an MLB.TV subscription allows you to stream the WS and change the audio feed?

    Also, just a heads up...Fubo TV advertised that they are streaming the game in 4K and have a Free Trial.

    I apparently live in a neighboring city where he does, and have seen him quite a few times out and about. Especially at this one restaurant he frequents. He looks like a damn wax figure and also dresses like he still wants to go out to a baseball field and play a few innings

    Let’s go Kershaw. Give us a good outing and let’s see our offense put some across.

    The 4k and HDR makes a huge difference.
