Question? Did the Red Sox have their extra point blocked or was it a flat out miss?? :lol:

I know this series isn't over & a game 5 is still a good possibility but damn these division championship series were sure anti-climatic :o


Wide Right. Laces out dammit.

I guess I'll root for the Dodgers in the National League now since they started life in Brooklyn, just like I did. I'll root for the Astros in the American League. They'll be playing either the Yankees or the Red Sox. As a Mets fan I can't root for the Yankees and no NYer would ever root for a team from Boston. :lol:
I remember when Mets fans wouldn't root for the Astose. Rooting for a Sox / Brewers WS.
I remember when the Astros were in the National....still don't know why they changed but guess it is a good thing they did.

HOPING, HOPING, HOPING,
Astros/Brewers World Series.
And although I want the Brewers to win it all, if the Astros go all the way, I’ll be happy for them.
Just don’t want to see that east coast team and west coast team win anything anymore.

What, no love for the Red Sox? Can't wait for tomorrow night. Really want my home town team to win, but even if they don't I will be watching all the games for the remainder of the season.
Can't get enough of it.

All I’ll say is I’m a Yankees fan. I should probably say no more than that. :lol:
Love? No.
Respect? Absolutely.

Astros win first game. Wasn't sure it was going to happen when Verlander got in a bind. But the bats finally started hitting.

I'm watching the Astros and Red Sox. I like Jose Altuve, he's a really good player, but it seems like every time they put the camera on him he's spitting. It's disgusting.
what I really mean . . . I wish you were here

And chewing on his fingernails...constantly. I know it is a habit, but
I hate that and spitting too.
But he can play baseball.

Amazing game, from the Red Sox perspective. Massive two run shot late in the game to go ahead, miraculous sliding catch in the bottom of the 9th to save the game, frozen rope throw from deep right to pick off the runner trying to make the double. Incredible ending.

From TV viewer perspective....I wish they would do something about these plays at the wall on potential home run balls. Either make the walls higher or keep the fans out of the first couple rows. Hate controversy especially in the post season!

Looks like I'll have to root for whoever wins the National League championship. :lol:

I saw Rafael Devers play in the minor leagues. He played for the Salem Red Sox and they're in the same league as the Myrtle Beach Pelicans.

Great series. Tough series loss for the Astros. Injuries plagued them in the stretch.

Hate to say it but Red Sox are just a machine right now. Was pulling for the Stro's......... [smilie=noeyedear-shrugging.gif]
A fan of the ex Tigers on Boston (JD Martinez/Ian Kinsler.....Don't count Price with essentially only 1 season/32 starts in Tiger uniform) but can't get behind the organization for a rooting interest.
LA/Boston will be my 2nd worst nightmare for a WS (Yanks/Dodgers would top it!
Please Brew Crew....RALLY!!! [smilie=laff.gif] :wink:
