The Brewers, but they had a good run. I maaay watch some of the Series, but don’t care who wins.

Same here, though it should be a pretty good one. No vested interest, but I think BoSox in seven.

They sure dismantled the Astros after Game 1. Best regular season and 7-2 postseason. No guesses, but even a sweep is possible.

18 innings = double header in one game. “longest game in the 114-year history of Major League Baseball’s postseason – 7 hours, 20 minutes”.

Losing just 1 game per series was their pattern.

A lot of people are criticizing LAD manager Roberts for pulling starting pitcher Rich Hill from Game 4 with Los Angeles leading 4-0 in the seventh, including lifelong slug "Bone Spurs" Trump on the day when a fellow rightwinger massacred 11 Jews in Pittsburgh. It sure didn't work out for L.A., but I don't pretend to know enough about baseball to criticize Roberts.

The contrast with tonight is interesting, though.

Bosox starter Price gave up a HR on his first pitch, then shutdown LAD for 6 innings, retiring 11 in a row through 6.
Bosox leading 4-1 in the top of the 7th, 2 on base, 2 outs, Price up in the order having thrown 76 pitches. What to do - stick with the pitcher to shut them down or pinch hit to hopefully close them out?
Bosox manager let Price bat - a weak ground out.
Price retired the side, including fielding a grounder - 14 in a row - in the bottom of the 7th, throwing less than 10 pitches.
Bosox scored another run in the top of the 8th, 5-1.
Price walked the first batter, taken out of the game.
Kelly struck out the side.
Sale struck out the side in the 9th. WS won 4 games to 1.

So, leaving Price in for the 7th and taking him out in the 8th after just 1 walk worked out great, but either choice could have been panned if things had gone differently.
So many wingnuts, so little time.
