Abreu is such a weapon in that pen.

And Dusty went to Pressly at the right time. Montero was brutal last night. Saved the game.

I couldn't decide if Montero had no control or was just pitching like a moron.  I get cautious around Castellanos.  But then you pitch a great AB to Bohm and strike him out...then dance around f-ing Bryson Stott without a single strike?

And kudos to Dusty.  If he didn't pull Montero, there is almost no doubt in my mind the Phillies  plate 2 more.

Awesome you were at one of the most historic moments in baseball history with your dad.

I also saw Jim Bunning of the Phillies pitch his perfect game against the Mets in '64.

I really like Joe Davis on the call.  Buck was good but he's a weirdo.  Davis has the pbp without the joe buck douchiness.

Sorry if your joylessness got interrupted by someone else’s happiness.

Hell of a job by Baker, a most deserving champion.

Peña was the obvious choice for Series MVP, but Pressly would have been a great pick too.

Amen.  Watched the post-game, which I never do, just to see Dusty.  Great ending to his career.  (Despite him ruining Mark Prior.)

Without bias is the manifestation of bunting with 2 strikes down 3 in the 8th inning of an elimination game.

"This is the greatest bunch of guys. They told me in spring training that they were gonna win it. Now, what's next? Party!"

Yep, the unbridled joy he showed was uplifting. He's 73 going on 23. It was uplifting to see and hear not only his expressions of happiness but the obvious love his players and the community has for him.

And FWIW, he said he's planning to win again next season, so this doesn't appear to be the end of his career quite yet.

A fitting outcome.  Houston was good all year.   Phillie got hot and got close.  The better team won.

Obvious???

Valdez would also like a word winning 2 games and dominating both.

Fitting ending to the playoffs though.

Pull your ace and bring in the lefty to face Alvarez.

HE DESTROYS lefties.

And just like game 4. Alvarado has to still face Bregman after due to the rules.

Astros have absolute weapons in their pen, they can go to those guys whenever they want. Jose alvarado is not a priority reliever.

 ::) Their ace wasn’t exactly an ace all postseason. In the prior World Series game he gave up a 5th inning, 2 run home run to Bregman after walking Alveraz. He had just walked a batter and given up a hit.

Yes, Alveraz kills lefties. But his numbers are even better against righties. And Bregman’s numbers are SIGNIFICANTLY worse against lefties.

He had a 2.78 this post season. Which factors in his start against Atlanta where they had a 3 run inning on like 3 scratch hits and one that shoulda been an error on Hoskins.

Weve already seen Alvarado tank in very similar spot. Now, if its the Astros pen and you got Abreu, Stank, Montero as options?? Do it.

Jose Alvardo isnt a priority over your ace.

And we already saw Wheeler tank in a very similar spot. Nobody made Alvarado a priority over their ace. If Wheeler doesn’t give up a walk and a hit Alvarado’s not starting the 6th to face Alveraz and Bregman.

Eric Hosmer's contract situation is one of the funnier ones I can remember in recent memory. He agrees to be dealt to the Red Sox on the eve of a 3-year player option on the condition he gets a full no trade clause.  As part of the deal, the Padres agree to pay his contract above the minimum, so it only costs the Red Sox a roster spot to keep him around. He opts in (a financial no brainer at $13M per for a replacement level player) so now he and the Red Sox just sort of get together and mutually decide if and where he wants to play on the Padres' dime.  There must be a Larry David degree of levity in the meetings between Hosmer, his agent, and Boston's front office.

Congratulations to Goldschmidt. Was he just using Pujols’s bat like Maldonado all year, or was he also using his PED dealer too?

The Brewers trading away their best offensive player for 2 meh pitchers and a pitching prospect is an interesting move.

Renfroe only under contract for one more year and is on his 5th team in 5 years. Hopefully not the biggest move they make this offseason.

It’s not a splashy move, but getting some pitching depth doesn’t hurt if you can reasonably replace Renfroe’s production.

Hunter Renfroe being the Brewers' "best offensive player" speaks volumes about why they're not legit contenders.

Even if you assume this is Renfroes peak offensive production (I do) this is a garbage return.

The Brewers are in a tough spot. There just are very few postions where they can do more than improve around the edges, and ownership doesn't want to pony up
