Well would you look at that, Yanks complete the comeback. I'll be rooting for you guys in the ALCS. I know, yuck. But I'd rather the Dodgers face them than the 'Stros. Plus there's a lot of history there.

Judge v Bellinger would be pretty sweet.

BUT, plenty more baseball to be had before considering something like that. 

Go Cubs. (Ugh)

Sports writers are such hacks. Two days ago every article was about how Strasburg was faking being sick because he didn't care about his team. Today they're all about how Strasburg climbed out of his deathbed to take the ball because he is a baseball god who puts his team above his own fragile health.

Not exactly relevant - this reminded me of a Drew Magary rant a couple weeks ago (after Zeke Elliot didn't try to tackle a defender after an interception.

Imagine a sportswriter having the nuts to say this to another person. Like, you’re a sportswriter. I write about sports for a living and I am a COLOSSAL baby. Peter King gets mad at Amtrak wifi, for God’s sake. It’s just like some writer who spends all day prowling breakfast buffets and jacking off in a hotel room to be like, “This guy simply does NOT get it.”

Sports writers are the worst. (Other than maybe Bomani, Dan Le Batard, and a couple others (former Grantlanders))

To the Old Baseball Gods and the New, please let the Cubs lose this game.

Thank you.

Nats get to Hendricks early. 4-1 The Team Formerly Known as the Expos over the Cubs in the top of the 3rd.

I wish it was possible for both of them to lose.

I sure do hate the Nationals. Daniel Murphy has a face for punching.

Mad Max bringing it, then slinging it. Punishing Cubs for even trying to swinging it.

Mad Max just figured out that Master Blaster runs Bartertown.

The Nats were handed this game early on and this is what they've done with it so far. If it keeps, they aren't cursed. They, as a team, appear to be suffering from the same thing everyone knocks Kershaw for.
