2018 Junior League Championship Game 4: Red Sox @ Astros

So after yesterday’s thumping victory we are destined to worship again at the altar of The Great God Citgo, and so I shall regale you with more tales of the Hub, as they like to think of themselves. Before I studied there Richard invited me on a business trip he was taking to brainstorm some …

2018 Senior League Championship Game 5: Brewers @ Dodgers

The Dodgers took 13 Innings last night to claw their way back into a tie. It shouldn’t have been so hard and the Brewers are still going back to Miller Field. It is the final game at Chavez Ravine (we hope) and even if they leave 2 – 3 the Brewers will have the advantage. …

2018 Senior League Championship Game 4: Brewers @ Dodgers

Meanwhile in Chavez Ravine we already know we will be returning to Miller Park since the Brewers cemented their Split yesterday. Yes they used Hader but they didn’t use him long. In the Regular Season he never went more than two games in a row but that doesn’t mean he can’t and what about World …

2018 Junior League Championship Game 3: Red Sox @ Astros

So we’re about to find out if we visit The Great God Citgo again, remember the Red Sox need only win one of three to regain home field advantage. Their Game 2 victory wasn’t convincing but it was solid enough, if the offense stays in gear and they don’t have to hit the Pen too …

2018 Senior League Championship Game 3: Brewers @ Dodgers

So we’re in Chavez Ravine which was both inevitable and by design, the Dodgers having accomplished what they needed to do which is achieve a Split. It may be we will never see Miller Park again this season if the Dodgers sweep at home. Or the Brewers could end it away if they’re extremely lucky …

2018 Junior League Championship Game 2: Astros @ Red Sox

So not the result I hoped for. Ok, since it’s entirely possible that we won’t get a chance to worship at the altar of The Great God Citgo again I’ll tell you this story which is relevant and self contained. Among the things I have done is chasing L’Hermione up and down the East Coast …

2018 Junior League Championship Game 1: Astros @ Red Sox

I don’t hate the Red Sox any more than I have to. I mean sure I’m a Metropolitans fan but I mostly don’t care what happens in the Junior League at all and to the extent that some of my fellow enthusiasts hate the Yankees (basically envy, Yankee fans don’t notice us at all), I …

2018 Senior League Championship Game 2: Dodgers @ Brewers

Pitching Fest! Well, kinda sorta for a while. The Brewers went with a strategy called “Bullpenning” where you don’t expect a pitcher to last more than 3 Innings, something that you can only do if you have a bench full of Relievers. In the Regular Season it’s of limited utility (162 games) but in Playoffs …

2018 Senior League Championship Game 1: Dodgers @ Brewers

First, a word about how we got here. The Brewersswept the Rockies which was only to be expected. Coors Field is a pitcher’s nightmare and a batter’s friend. The elevation makes the ball carry farther and in consequence the Ball Park is larger than most. Ok, that solves your Home Run problem but leaves acres …

2018 Senior League Division Championship Game 4: Red Sox @ Yankees

Well, could be the last time I get to use this clip for a year. Ok, the Red Sox crushed the damn Yankees last night in a game marked by managerial errors by Aaron Boone who left Severino in waaay too long (also pitched him on too little rest). By the Top of the 5th …
