    Lol at these ESPN guys doing everything they can to avoid the Astros issue. About Altuve: “Why do you say he’s guessing? Has he always been a guess guy?”

    “wellll you can see, uhhh he’s been sitting on his back foot a lot this year he just looks off”

    fucking despicable

    That exchange was so dumb. They sounded genuinely confused by Altuve's regression.

    ESPN was also trying to downplay the Astros cheating scandal earlier, blaming their pitching for the team's decline this year. Glossing over the Astros going from a historically good offense in 2019 (highest WRC+ since the 1927 Yankees) to average in 2020.

    Welp, the Astros got help from an error with 2 outs in the 9th and were able to capitalize for 3 runs. Now the Twins(one of the best teams in the game in 2020) are on the verge of elimination after 1 day. Fuck this playoff format so so so soooo much

    Not sure with the Twins' putrid playoff history of late the format really matters.

    The Twins would lose to DSP in a playoff game.

    I know it's early, but I really feel like the Dodgers and Yankees are on a collision course. It's overdue.

    IF the Dodgers made the WS, the Yankees would be the last team from the AL I'd want to face

    I said it mostly because they have the highest ceiling in the AL, but also I would love it. A matchup literally 4 years in the making, it would legitimize this bastard of a season, and it would be challenging as hell for both sides. Is it the series we are most likely to win? No. Give us the A’s, Rays, or White Sox and we probably make quick work of them...

    But I’m getting way ahead of things, we need to beat the Brewers first. This thing could go south in any round.

    tbt this first round scares me
    one bad throw, pitch, at bat... you’re on the brink of elimination
    the .600 twins are now there, against a sub-.500 team who shouldn’t even be in the postseason
    nice job manfred

    This 3-game series has made everyone forget that a 5-game series is also a short series that lends itself to a lot of upset results.

    I hate them both. If they are going to expand the playoffs, then shorten the regular season to 154 and go 7-7-7-7. There is your 8 extra games to make up the 8 lost

    Mike Clevinger and Dinelson Lamet are out for the series. Bleak outlook for Clevinger who may miss the playoffs while Lamet's situation is still up in the air.

    I wouldn't mind a 3-game series in the first round if the top 2 seeds get byes, followed by 7-7-7. I've always supported the 154 season. And the WS should be wrapped up before Halloween, no excuses.
