Glad that Boston is out! It gave me so much joy to see Pedroia ground out for the final out of the game.

Hope the Yankees go next, but the last game is a crap shoot. There are things I like about the Yankees (the tree in right field and the rookie Catcher really are awesome, wish they were on another team).

Cubbies could finish off the Nats today. I'm rooting for the Nationals because well the Cubbies had their World Series.

I would like to see a Nationals - Astros world series. Houston's offense is just nasty. Can't say the same about Cleveland without Edwing.

Yankees caught a huge break when Encarcion went down. He's a one man wrecking crew. It's Cy Young vs Cy Old in game 5.
Go Yankees.

Fiinal October 9th game recap & box score: fizzle, thud. By chance I happened to be at three of the last four Greinke starts of 2017, and that horse was going lame or else kidnapped & replaced by an imposter. I hope four months out to pasture does the trick. But the best (overall most complete) baseball team won. So wait till next year, or till 2022 if they end up on the hook for paying $31 million a year for an empty #1 rotation spot.

Now I have no active baseball wagers. This is morally offensive and I think probably illegal in Nevada, but I don’t see anything I want to buy at this point. Here’s the apparent consensus of current World Series futures odds that I’ve converted to the implied break-even win percentage probability (first number including vig), and the FiveThirtyEight estimate of World Series win probability (second number), and the difference between the two (#2 - #1).

LAD 31%, 27%, -4
HOU 25%, 24%, -1
CLE 20%, 23%, +3
CHC 18%, 15%, -3
NYY 11%, 7%, -4
WAS 6%, 4%, -2

As two division series are decided while the other two are unresolved, this could alternatively be viewed as: 31%/30% for the winner of the New York @Cleveland elimination game, and 24%/19% for the winner of the Washingon-Chicago series. The “overnight” of tomorrow’s individual game moneyline at Westgate:

WAS +154, CHC -164
NYY +170, CLE -185
Nevermind.

I had the game wrong, but Greinke worked hard and the result was actually not terrible. 3 earned over 5 innings was OK. Darvish was just better. Heck of a job by the ARI relievers to give them a chance with 4 scoreless to end the game. More experienced LAD move on.
Hard to watch Dusty pull Mad Max. Just leave him in and let your best win or lose the game. One hit and he is pulled? It felt
like a regular season move.

Looking forward to today’s games. Go Yanks!

Watched the game at the sports book and then caught the second half of Billy's show at House of Blues.
I thought that he wouldn't go on until the game was over, but he started promptly at 8:15.
Four down. Eight to go.

Like I said, the Indians will never win another game, forever. Houston fans are probably feeling pretty good. Along with Fox Sports.

Go Gnats. Because winning stuff is not what Cubs are for; that's just so wrong. Last night Westgate had them at CHC -120/WAS +110. Looks like they've moved their line to -105/-105 this morning.
Nevermind.

I’am pretty happy with the Wild Card and division series win over CLE.

Who is even pitching for the Nat’s? Roark or Gio?
I am hoping for a high presssure, rollercoaster, slugfest in this one...

Every Yankee fan should be thrilled with the season we've gotten thus far, but I see no reason they can't go further.
