Other than going to a spring training game or so, I don't usually follow MLB until close to season end. But it would be cool to have a Dodgers-Yanks World Series again. Like way back in the day when I wore Yogi's 8.

Dodgers–Yankees rivalry

… The two teams have met 11 times in the World Series, more times than any other pair of teams from the American and National leagues…. Although the rivalry's significance arose from the two teams' numerous World Series meetings, the Yankees and Dodgers have not met in the World Series since 1981. They would not play each other in a non-exhibition game until 2004, when they played a 3-game interleague series. Nevertheless, games between the two teams have become quite popular and draw sellout crowds.

Statistics

Meetings total: 81 (World Series: 65, regular season: 16)
Regular season series: Tied, 8–8
World Series: Yankees defeat Dodgers 8-3
Interesting article, reminded me of things I'd long forgotten.

That was an exciting 9th. Since I didn't care, I was going to root for ATL on your behalf. Then I heard that war chant. Go Cards!
Crap, 1-1. Now in StL.

Braves say they take Ryan Helsley’s concerns about ‘Tomahawk Chop’ seriously

Cardinals rookie reliever Ryan Helsley made his postseason debut in the eighth inning of Game 1 of the NLDS against the Braves in Atlanta on Thursday. Helsley, from Tahlequah, Oklahoma and a member of Cherokee Nation, saw the crowd at SunTrust Park chant as they swung their foam tomahawks, the Braves’ tradition known as the “Tomahawk Chop.”

The “Tomahawk Chop” has drawn criticism for being culturally insensitive. The Braves are not alone as Cleveland’s baseball team and the NFL’s team from Washington have also received criticism for similar reasons.

The Braves have more or less ignored the criticism, though they did phase out mascot Chief Noc-A-Homa in the late 1980’s. Meanwhile, commissioner Rob Manfred has stumbled in addressing the issue.

Helsley added his own criticism of the “Tomahawk Chop,” Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported on Saturday. Helsley said, “I think it’s a misrepresentation of the Cherokee people or Native Americans in general. Just depicts them in this kind of caveman-type people way who aren’t intellectual. They are a lot more than that. It’s not me being offended by the whole mascot thing. It’s not. It’s about the misconception of us, the Native Americans, and it devalues us and how we’re perceived in that way, or used as mascots. The Redskins and stuff like that.”

Helsley added, “That’s the disappointing part. That stuff like this still goes on. It’s just disrespectful, I think.” ...

Joe wasn't taking a one year deal, he'll land on his feet just fine. I'm guessing the Angels.
Ah, makes sense. Gonna be an Angels fan?
Good guess.

The Angels are reportedly Joe Maddon’s top choice for his next job

All four Division Series could be decided on Monday

:shock:

I don't really care about the Astros - Rays (Astros lead 2-0), but I hope the other 3 aren't decided today.

Blech.

Heard on the broadcast last night that the 2010's are the only decade that the evil empire has not appeared in the world series. Unbelievable.

You're saying this is their year? ;)

3 5-game series and a sweep. Gotta figure the Yankees are now the favorite.

Sorry for you and Cubsworld but :lol: . Top 6th, 0 Outs, 13-1 after 10 runs in the 1st. In ATL, perfect. Gee, kinda hard to see/hear that chop/chant now. How many left the stadium in the 1st?

Edit, announcer: "This one mercifully headed to the bottom of the 9th".

I will be rooting for the Dodgers or Nationals > Cards, hopefully the Nationals.

:thumbup: :clap: Kendrick 10th inning GS!!!! Perfect, he was kinda the goat for the team's 3 errors in the series, including 1 in this game.

1-1 in Wild Card Eliminations
2-0 in League Divisional Series
Didn't care about the others.

Now I want:

Yankees > Astros or Rays
Nationals all the way, an Amtrak Series.

Not sure when they started counting, but in 140 years or so no team had ever scored 10 in the 1st in postseason play.
