I don't care about Farrell one way or the other but watching the press conference from the GM today on MLB Network just reeked of corporate BS.  Just doing something to appease the fans in Boston who suddenly expect their team to win the WS every damn year.

We get some of that "spoiled fan" crap here too.  People are calling for Mike Matheny to be fired as the Cardinals manager because the team has now missed the post-season two years in a row.  Waaaaaah...cry me a river.  Other teams haven't made the post-season for a lot longer.  I'd have no problem with Matheny being fired but it's because I think he over-manages and makes moves that are unnecessary.  And he has this annoying tendency to play guys he knows over guys he doesn't even if the guys he doesn't are producing a lot more than the guys he knows.  But not because St Louis has missed the post-season two years in a row.  Big deal.

Yeah Boston continually seems and acts like one of those "entitled" teams. I hope they finish in last place next year.

I can't believe the Indians choked after being up 2-0. If the Nationals can win, that would be both of last year's World Series teams knocked out in the ALDS. I'm not sure too many people would have predicted that.

I sure hope the Nats win. An LA/Cubs NLCS would be unwatchable for me.

I've said all along I want Houston to win the WS and now more than ever.

I think a lot of people are rooting for the Astros. Just about everyone I talk to is pulling for Houston.

Same here.

What's sad is that 3 of my least favorite teams are still in it.

Ugh. Cubs vs LA

I guess I have to pull for LA. I'm REALLY sick of hearing about the Cubs.

Yeah, at least LA hasn't won since 1988.
Go Astros!

MLB Tonight had an interesting package on that today.  Basically Cleveland failed at a lot of little things.  Missed cutoff men, the outfielder with the lesser angle to the plate catching the ball, dropped balls on pickoffs...a lot of really insignificant things when taken individually but they all added up.

They had a similar package on how the Nats lost. Same thing.

Watching the game and I noticed that on the padding behind home plate there's one section that says "Astros.com" and another that says "AstrosdeHouston.com".

Now wait a minute; are you trying to tell me that a Spanish-speaking Astros fan isn't going to know what "Astros.com" means so they had to take out a Spanish version domain?

I think that's ridiculous.

The "death of a thousand cuts".

I'm pretty sure they'll figure it out.

I'm surprised how Tanaka is doing. He didn't have a great season.

I only see an X.

But it could be me. My cable company was out here this week to "fix" one HD box that wasn't working and they decided it was because my cable wiring was "out of spec". Ever since I've had issue with some TV channels pixelating and tiling and my internet has dropped 3 times.

They're coming back out Monday to "fix" it.

It's a picture from a story, but I think the picture may have been from a Twitter feed.

Watching the Astros/Yankees game 5. Currently 2-0 NY.

At least it look like the Dodgers are going to eliminate the Schlubs since LA is up 3 games to none. I can't wait to go around mocking them by singing "Go HOME Cubs,go...go HOME Cubs go...." after having to listen to that damn song SOOOOO many times over last winter.

I don't know but I bet this series goes 7. Houston is back home for the next one and Verlander is starting.

It better not end up with NY and LA in the World Series. I'm sure MLB would love that though.
