I'm surprised the Yankees series was that close. The Astros should have won in 5 or 6 games.

Yep. Their bats just went cold in New York.

I read it's supposed to be almost 100 in LA for the series. Hopefully NO bats can go cold in that.

It sure isn't that warm here right now.

The Yankees aren't bringing Girardi back. I heard rumors that GM Brian Cashman didn't see eye to eye anymore with Girardi. I think Girardi deserved better.

I like this article on the firing/not bringing back of managers this season.

Yeah that was crap.

As I said before I've always respected Girardi because of the Daryl Kile game against the Cardinals. I think this is worse than the Boston firing because the Yankees weren't even expected to be good this year much less make it to the ALCS. As that article said, for some reason Girardi had a falling out with upper management.

You know what would be really funny? If Boston hired him!

BTW, I went to bed after the 7th inning of last night's World Series game with the Dodgers up 3-1. With their bullpen I figured it was over. Imagine my surprise when I woke up to find Houston won 7-6 in 11 innings. That game featured 8 homeruns, a new WS single game record, and 5 of them were in extra innings!

I always miss the best stuff in post-season. Remember the David Freese homerun for the Cardinals against Texas that brought STL back from the brink of losing the WS? Didn't see that live either. This stuff always happens long after I have to be in bed. Crying or Very sad

I guess he's well suited to handle the pressure of that market.
It's all the more reason to want the Yankees to fail next year. Cashman is a tool.

Same here! I checked out after the 7th too. I was surprised as heck when I checked the score in the morning.

The Astros - Dodgers is turing out to be quite a fun series!

Another great game that I couldn't stay up to watch. It was 7-4 LA when I went to bed.

It's certainly a lot more exciting than the 2015 World Series, when the Royals played somebody. It was so memorable I can't even remember which team they played.

MLB Network is saying if this goes to 7 games it might be the best WS ever.  So far all the games have been pretty competitive and two of them (games 2 and 5) have been "epic".

I can't see how it gets to game 7 unless Verlander completely lays an egg (which given this series' history could happen).  It sure has been fun so far - even if I have to catch the good stuff on replays.

The Astros are deserved winners. Both teams played a heck of a series. And Springer was definitely a worthy MVP.

Only a few more days until the crazy season starts.

Yep.  Hot Stove on MLB Network starts up on Monday.  It's the one format in which I enjoy Harold Reynolds; he's hilarious on that show. Hot Stove actually makes me not dread the baseball off-season as much as I used to.

One of the field reporters for Hot Stove thinks JD Martinez might go to the Cardinals. I'd love to see that.

He is a great hitter, but a poor defender. I think he might end up at first base eventually, if he ends up in the NL.

MLB Network is reporting Roy Halladay was killed in a plane crash.

Sure does. I always liked him. And he was good friends with Cris Carpenter.

It's odd when our sports heros die because we feel like we knew them. Especially when it's a baseball player for you and me. It's like I lost a friend.

I know exactly how you feel. I grew up watching his career unfold.

At least he was doing something he loved doing. He just bought that plane last month.

He leaves behind a wife and two kids.

Which only makes it worse.

The guys on MLB Network are saying even though he probably could have pitched several more years, the big reason he retired was because he wanted to be a dad for his kids.

So sad.
