    And another big swing for Houston.

    Now it's Boston's turn to pucker up.

    Seems odd strategy to leave Sawamura in the game .

    Well, I'd say that was an entertaining game, no matter what team you happen to root for.

    I don't hate the Braves and I love Acuña Jr. Sad he's hurt.

    All the other teams can go to hell and die.

    I guess.

    I'm still on hiatus. Eventually, my bitterness will soften and I'll want to watch some baseball.

    I'd tune in to watch the Braves whoop up on any of the turds left.

    Ok...I don't hate the Braves. The Dudgers, Sux and Asstros can fuck off though.

    Hate to tell you boys this , but the Astros are looking pretty tough . Sorry , but how can you root against Dusty Baker, guy has given his life to baseball , dealt with some real nonsense with humor , always upbeat . We discussed this before , players have always cheated , pitchers doctor baseballs for an edge , teams steal signs , hell , back in the day teams would hire someone to heckle players from other teams . Probably still happens . It has never been a completely clean game , maybe just a little more hi-tech now . Trust me , everyone is looking for an edge .

    I root for teams that don't do that.

    I despise MLB for looking the other way for the Asstros. But I eventually did come around and root for my two teams. (CHW, MIL) Now that neither are in it, screw it. I suppose I could root for ATL, but they’ll be lucky to win one, maybe two, against the Dodgkees. The AL will have a cheater in the Series regardless so fuck that.

    Which teams are those Ben ? Kind of like Mike Schmidt once said about steroids , if they had been available when he was playing he probably would have used them . Yes , that Mike Schmidt , the greatest 3rd baseman ever , always a gentleman .

    Sox came back hard tonight. But let's not forget that Houston plays better than anyone on the road.

    The bat's are awake for the BoSox, could be hard to quiet them down

    The Athletics for one. You may know them as the team who told on the astros.

    I admit that I'm a bit partial, but Riley deserves MVP. League minimum 3rd baseman that most fans wanted sent back down to the minors this season. Just unfuckingbelievable.

    You mean the team that was at the center of the steroid scandal ? Didn't the A's have a pitcher recently get caught doctoring a baseball ? See the problem Ben ? I love that baseball is trying to clean its self up , but it has always been what it is , where players are always looking for an advantage , if you want a sport where the players involved are worried about honor then golf is your game .

    No, they weren't caught doctoring a baseball.

    Are you taking about the 80s and 90s? When steriods weren't banned by baseball and they didn't even test for it and EV WE RYBODY was doing it?

    Totally the same as sophisticated cameras, electronically relaying the signals to the dugout where it's then relayed to the batter IN REAL TIME?

    Totally the same. I see your point.
