    Would love to have such an all-around great hitter like that. Unfortunately we don't have the benefit of the DH spot.

    Jeremy Jeffress, Blake Treinen, Zach Britton, Craig Kimbrel... pretty good regular season relievers who have been knocked around some in the post. Point is, we can expect perfection from Jansen, but in reality the playoffs are a whole 'nother animal.

    Chapman has had his rough postseason moments as well.

    I expect a pro to be able to waste a pitch with an 0-2 count. What happened with Jansen and Marwin Gonzalez last year was amateur hour. Bottom line

    Truth. That galls me now as much as any one moment from that series.

    And Blanton in the postseason the year before..same shit. 0-2 count and he can't simply waste a pitch like hundreds of minor league relief pitchers would be able to do. There's no excuse

    Someone last week on FoxSports radio was blathering about the BoSox' 'minor weakness' ... may have been Clay Travis, who I think is a hack ... anyway.

    This talking head went on about how the Sox are built to win their division moreso than they are to beat an NL team in a short series. I checked the data as best I could (I defer to others here who read saber stuff better than me, which is almost anyone), and I saw that Boston beat the NL this past 16 out of 20. I don't know which team they beat ... anyway.

    Whatever the BS is now, I cannot imagine a more matched series in recent years than Houston vs. Boston. I hate them both, but it should be a barnburner.

    Good for CC Sabathia for calling out Angel Hernandez...tat " he shouldn't be anywhere near a playoff game. He's a bad umpire".
    He is; has been for a long time.I couldn't care less who won or lost that game, but what's right is right.
    And whether or not you agree or disagree with his pitch calling last night, it does address the overall inept performances we see all too often from these guys.
    Something should definitely be done about it...and maybe I'm way too much for going at HoF mgr., Joe Torre, if he's in charge of them, then fucking do the right thing. Its your job, you stroonst.
    Damn, how hard can it be to compile a tape of individual failures when there is a superimposed strike zone just about every game?
    There's challenges every game played, plenty of overturning all he time, proving how often they suck. Hernandez especially.
    So...wtf???
    Porcello, who grew up down the road from where I live now, should shut his fucking mouth and take his victory with some decorum and class. Be happy.
    His response to CC was high douchebaggery.

    Hernandez has played the race card to defend his ineptitude, which is even worse than sucking at his job. When so many Latinos have endured shitty treatment and piss-poor work conditions for so long, it makes litigious, frivolous claims like his stink even worse than that.

    He needs to accept that MLB umpiring has suffered for too long from the Peter Principle, and he is living proof of obsolescence & incompetence in his area of 'expertise' ...

    Boston definitely looks legit. Although, they do have some questionable areas. Sale and Price have had their share of struggles in OCT so it actually wouldn't shock me if HOU smacked them around some. And Houston has been very beatable at home this season for whatever reason.

    The way I see it, all the shit we gave the Dodgers this year for their underachieving performance was warranted, but at the end of the day LAD still has a ton of talent and Houston barely won that fuckin WS last year with LAD just choking it over to them for the most part. Both Houston and Boston went out in the offseason looking to get significantly better and maybe because they know the Dodgers should have won that WS last year easily. So I don't know that I agree with the talking head or disagree, but I just know LAD has the talent give both of those teams some problems..if they play up to their potential. And don't choke.

    Price 4-18 postseason record. I'd say he's had "his share of struggles."

    We could trade Verdugo, Joc and some surplus minor leaguers for Goldy and move Muncy to LF and Bellinger to CF.


    2B: Seager
    3B: Turner
    1B: Goldschmidt
    LF: Muncy
    SS: Machado
    CF: Bellinger/Taylor
    RF: Puig/Kike
    C : Grandal/Rookie
