2019 Senior League Division Championship Game 2: Nats at Dodgers

How much do I hate the Dodgers? More than the Nats surprisingly. How did we get here? First the Nats took one from the Brewers (unfortunately, I still hate them). Top 1– Walk. 2 RBI Home Run. Brewers 2 – 0. Top 2– Solo Shot. Brewers 3 – 0. Bottom 3– Solo Shot. Brewers 3 …

2019 Junior League Division Championship Game 1: Twins at Yankees

I couldn’t resist this one. The Twins are an inoffensive team and I had a really good time when I visited and reccomend it to anyone, but in the absence of my Metropolitans gotta go with the other home team, the Yankees, no matter how hated it makes me. There is no here to get. …

2019 Senior League Division Championship Game 2: Cards at Braves

I don’t hate the Cards nearly as much as I do the Braves because they play in the same division as my Metropolitans, but across large swathes of the Country they are hated just as passionately as the Yankees. Maybe because they have the second best World Series record in Baseball (ahem). Normally I’d find …

2019 Junior League Division Championship Game 1: Rays at Astros

Maybe I’ll have something peppier to say later but at the moment I’m just cranking through the bare outlines. The Rays are actually a team I have no particular grudge against. This no doubt disappoints them as they are reputed to have fierce rivalries with the BoSox and the Yanks. Couldn’t prove it by me. …

2018 World Series Game 5: Red Sox @ Dodgers

Well, this is certainly the position to be in. By winning last night (and convincingly at that with a 5 Run uprising in the Top of the 9th) the Red Sox have achieved their Split in Chavez Ravine and need do nothing at all to fly back to Fenway 3 – 2. On the other …

2018 World Series Game 4: Red Sox @ Dodgers

Yawn. Well, that was like watching 2 scoreless Ballgames in a row. The thing about losing in Extra Innings is that you put so much energy into it and didn’t get the result you wanted. For the Red Sox the bad thing is that they used Eovaldi for 6 Innings (about as long as one …

2018 World Series Game 3: Red Sox @ Dodgers

I suppose I might have given Fenway a bigger sendoff because it is entirely possible the Red Sox will celebrate on the road unless the Dodgers get busy. If they notch a Split the Red Sox will return home no worse than 3 – 2. If the Dodgers Sweep they can achieve no more that …

2018 World Series Game 2: Dodgers @ Red Sox

A Tale from The Walking City Don’t get me wrong, Boston has an excellent Above/Below Ground Transit System usually called just the “T”. It’s cheap and reasonably kempt, the main problem is it doesn’t run 24/7 (or at least it didn’t). So a bunch of friends and I were at a Show in Harvard Square …

2018 World Series Game 1: Dodgers @ Red Sox

A Tale from the Athens of America To lead off there are 33 other Countries in América del Sur y Central and one that’s 3.5% larger to the North, so “America” is hardly descriptive of our geographic location which is why I prefer “United States”. It shows what Bostonians think of themselves though and the …

2018 Senior League Championship Game 7: Dodgers @ Brewers

I must say the Dodgers looked shabby last night. I’m talking 1986 Sox shabby with the caveat that they were never really in the game and the Sox were one strike away, so in fact much worse. Ryu was chased (and is now useless) in 3, 5 Runs down. They used 6 Relievers, none for …
