Sox win via replay because of course they do.

Both LCS look really good and we could get any combination for the World Series.

Should be two great series.

If I were a Sox fan I'd be terrified of Kimbrel in more high leverage situations.  That bottom of the 9th was painful to watch

I really wonder if Price isn't in the bullpen going forward.  The stats clearly say he just isn't an effective playoff starter and any positive contributions he's had have come from the pen.  Him shitting himself in the first three innings and forcing his team to dig themselves out is not a winning strategy.

Stanton only managed four singles and struck out six times in the series.  I think we have our scapegoat.

So this might lead to David Price: game 5 starter if things go bad.  This is a big gamble by Cora.
Jen McCaffrey of the Athletic says Sale would've started game five.

Given Kimbrel's struggles, can you imagine if the Sox had tried to get six outs from him?

Who we got?

Boston in 7
Milwaukee in 7

I'm maybe 50% confident in these picks.  I do think both series go at least 6.

Houston in 6 and Dodgers in 5.

- Houston's pretty good all through the lineup and have a better bullpen, while also allowing far fewer runs than Boston did.
- Milwaukee's basically riding 2 Bats, 1 SP, and a decent bullpen. Dodgers have a far better overall offense and a much stronger rotation.

Can't wait for the inevitable "Chris Sale goes in for rotator cuff surgery" headline in the off season.  He's gotta do something to prevent constantly burning himself out at the end of the season.

This game has been a fucking slog.  I thought they were supposed to limit guys stepping out before every single pitch?

Nine fucking walks.  And Price is up tomorrow.  Maybe both series won't go six.

Cole isn't pitching horrible but god damn this is no where close to what he's been during the regular season. I figured I'd get this outing from Dallas or maybe Morton, not our 1a pitcher.

I guess saying "he didn't totally shit himself" is praising Price a little tonight.  Still, you'd think your #2 playoff starter could get through the fifth regularly.  He's not even in line to get the win.

Not surprised dude always struggled in September with the White Sox even in his last year when Coop had him trying to pitch more to contact and reduce stress on the arm. There’s a reason he hasn’t won a Cy Young despite being so great.

Eovaldi has been fucking nails since he got traded.  But these games are kinda fucking tedious.  I thought the Yankees were eliminated?

MLB is investigating the Astros for pulling a Spygate in game 1 and stealing signs.  I'm sure plenty of teams do it, but to be obvious enough to get caught is hilarious.

If Rodriguez and Price end up pitching, who the fuck is taking Sale's spot tomorrow?  Will this be some Tampa "guy pitches the first and the bullpen takes over" stuff?

Kimbrel is absolutely shaky and I don't know why he came in in the 8th.  Is Price going to close this out?  What the fuck is happening?

I've been listening to these games on the radio because I hate TBS' announcing crew.  Plus, I can do other shit while these games go 4+ hours.

Andrew Benintendi saved Cora from having a Grady Little moment.  No idea why he trusted Kimbrel to get six damn outs.

Guess Price pitches on three days rest tomorrow...er....today.  There was great drama at the end of this, too bad it happened at 1 AM.

I notice they're all wearing the same New Era ski goggles for the celebration.  That's hilarious that there's an Official Clubhouse Celebration Goggles of Major League Baseball.  I wonder if they use the same champagne or did a bunch of clubhouse guys have to run to the nearest package store after the 7th and just cleared off a couple shelves.
