    That grand slam was hit on an 0-2 pitch, with two out ... worthy of Pineda!

    In the postgame. A-Rod waved the W and now the Cubs fans are chanting "A Rod!" and "Hall of Fame!". Ha.

    Re: NLCS - Los Angeles vs. Chicago

    It is fun to watch the Cubs team because they are young and loaded with talent from top to bottom. They feel like a dynasty in the making to me. We used to have teams like that. Now we trade for their cast offs and wait out cappy contracts. Maybe we ARE just in transition but it still sucks.
    When I was a kid, my father told me, "Never hit anyone in anger, unless you're absolutely sure you can get away with it."

    The Red Sox wanted to keep AGon, but he was the bait that made the Dodgers take the albatross contract of Crawford.

    Crawford alone, makes the Red Sox the big winners of the trade. Personally, I'm still unhappy the Red Sox were let off the hook on Crawford. AGon was paid an elite salary- there was no discount for him at the time.

    The Dodgers paid Crawford $144 million over 6 years and received a total of 2.8 bWAR over that time. That's not even replacement level and he was DFA'd with 2 years remaining on his contract.

    The Dodgers got better production out of Beckett, but still had to absorb his contract for ~$46 million for the final 3 seasons in his career.

    That's what I was thinking.

    The 0-1 pitch was a hanging slider, also. That should have been the grand slam pitch. Blanton was just terrible.

    AGon with a solo HR in the 2nd.

    1-0. Dodgers.

    I wish Theo traded Baez to us, instead.

    I can sure see why- this is the first time really watching him and to be as talented, hardworking AND smart.. Thats really rare.

    I don't see Castro letting that ball drop. No wonder the cubs were okay with giving him up.

    Re: NLCS - Los Angeles vs. Chicago

    AGon with another bone headed running play.

    Runners on 1st and 2nd, 1 out. AGon on 2b.

    Baez wisely let the soft liner bounce and caught it on a short hop. Gonzalez apparently wasn't paying attention to that and was easily tagged out for a double play.

    I don't think I have ever seen a crowd that thinks a batted ball is a HR so much as this one - only to see it be an out.
    If they ask who was our star, give them 25 names, and if you forget our names, just tell them we were Yankees.

    Ha ha...they had me thinking it was a HR.

    Btw, Kershaw is a complete pitching stud. It's nice to see some of his gems.

    CalYankeeFan, I'm assuming that we both have a lot of friends, who are Dodger fans?

    Holy crap. I don't follow other teams that closely, so everyone might already know this, but Jansen started out in the Dodger organization as a catcher? He even caught Kershaw. And now he's their closer.

    He could make an good manager one day.

    My wife is a Dodger fan....I am surrounded by them. So I am pulling for them for that reason. But I am just enjoying these playoffs. This is another classic game, no matter the outcome.

    Puig looked like one of our own Yankees with that bunt attempt. What was going on there?

    There were at least 5 balls that had people standing and the crowd starting to roar.

    Kershaw was developing a "David Price" type reputation in the postseason. He's gone a ways toward erasing that over the last 10 days or so.
