Swept the Phillies to take the division.  Hopefully rest some arms during the 3 game set with the Mets to finish the season. 

Saw where Waino will take the bump against, most likely, the Dodgers.  Did you see that coming a couple of years ago? The guy has sort of recharged his career.

And Cards just resigned him to a one year deal.  He will retire a Redbird next year along with Molina.

If he pitches like this again, I can foresee another 1 year deal.

Not with Molina retiring, too, though. 

If they get stay healthy, and get ~20 starts next year, they will set a Modern Era Baseball Record of most starts for a battery.

Holy Childhood 8th grade team won the semis today, and will now play on Thursday in the state finals.  Down 6-2 in the second, they rallied for one in the 3rd, one in the 4th, and then blew up for 7 in the 5th, and cruised to an 11-6 win.

MiniAUJ was 2 for 4, with 2 RBI.

Congrats and good luck.  However, I am highly offended by the Apache name.  The level of cultural appropriation these 8th graders are participating in is both insensitive and shocks the mind. I'll bet you fans also do the chop during rallies.  Who does that shit?


Oh wait......never mind.  Good luck in the finals.

Last night, the Red Sox beat those putrid Yank Me's 6-2 to advance to the NLDS against Tampa.  I adopted the Sox years ago as my American League favorite, but that was mostly as the antithesis of the Yankees.  Honestly, I don't give two shits, just so no NY team makes the Series.

I heard one of the analysts this morning answer the question of what's wrong with the NYY.  His answer was very telling and made me immediately think of the Braves.  He said the Yankees took their home run, or strike out mentality into the playoffs, and you simply can't do that and be successful long term.

That describes the ATL perfectly.  We have 4 guys with 30 or more HR's.  Dansby Swanson has 27.  And while Freeman and Austin Riley both ended the season as .300 hitters, the overall approach of this club is come out of your cleats on every swing.  The rest of the line up is batting .220 to .257. I get so frustrated even listening to the Braves announcers, who have that mentality.  "Well, let's get a couple of long ones here and go home."

Yes, I'm old.  And old school.  Your 3-4-5 hitters drive the ball and go yard.  Everybody else's job is to get on base and go station to station.  The lead off hitter gets on by walk, drag bunt, slapping the ball to left etc. If he doesn't steal, the 2nd place hitter moves him into scoring position any way he can.  Then your boppers get him home. 

Not anymore.  And I don't see the Braves advancing too far because of it.

I don't watch the entitled kneeling woke bitches any more, but your words are true.
When you hit the playoffs, pitching is a different animal. The long-ball gets scarce.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shitty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

Dodgers walk it off against the Cards.  The Birds left way to many runners on base.  Just couldn't get the clutch hit.  Having said that, I love the fact that we have the wildcard.  It makes it so much more interesting down the stretch of a long season when there are a lot of teams still with a chance.  But after 162 games, you have a one game, winner take all?  Nah, bro!!!  Goes against the way the whole season is played.  It's like in football, having huge, elite athletes beat the shit out of each other for 59 minutes and 57 seconds (Mmmmm...sweaty athletes), only to have a 150 pound kicker come in for one play to decide the game.

Needs to start right after the regular season and play best of 3.
