I'll be pulling for them tonight but boy did my optimism evaporate after that Turner hit tied it up.

 

On the bright side, tonight gives Kershaw a chance to blow it -again-, which would be the best possible way for the Dodgers to lose.

It's just hard for me to picture Lance McCullers Jr. as a World Series savior. Part of that comes from not knowing much about him. Maybe he has the stuff to get it done? I just don't see it in my head currently.

Nobody scored but God I'm just not seeing it with McCullers.

Luckily Darvish is worse.

Prediction on when Dodgers fans start leaving for home?

 

I 'm thinking next inning.

Man, that bottom of the 2nd could have gone so much worse for Houston.

 

Clutch play from Bregman. That's a guy rising to the occasion.

Entire room full of people screaming about Darvish since halfway thru first inning.

This one is on Roberts.

Alright, someone check McCullers for betting slips. At the very least he has the over.

Huge 2/3 of an inning from Peacock.

No lead is large enough. I'm still nervous.

Five to one baby.  One in five.  No one here gets out alive.

Thank you Morton for that 1-2-3 inning. So relaxing.

post #213 of 224
Way to go Morton.

Keep him in for the 9th. He has calmed this game way down.

 

Feel bad for Larry King. Sandy Koufax doesn't want to sit anywhere near him.

Mary Hart left. Shame.

Thank you Houston. Fuck LA.

Congrats, Olmos and any other Astros fans.

 

Always appreciative of them for letting the White Sox beat them in 2005.

Enjoy this, Matt and Olmos! Happy for Houston. You beat evil. City should be proud.

 

As painful as it was seeing the Dodgers get to the World Series, it was worth it to see them lose the World Series.

It's hackey but I don't care.

Truly great Series. Even better to win. Even BETTER to win against LA. Even better still to do so for the first time, and on the heels of Harvey. I'm also happy to see the contributions of Bill James continue to shape the sport (though at $150 mill the Astros ain't the A's).

I'm a transplant but I've got friends and family who lived in Texas their entire lives who are still speechless. My brother in law is Houston born-and-raised and he's struggling to process the win. I'm happiest for those life-long fans who have finally been rewarded, some of them at the lowest point in their lives. It's cliche to say "Houston needed this"... but I'm not so sure it's untrue.

Was an especially rough night for Puig:

Dodgers outfielder Yasiel Puig’s Encino home was broken into Thursday night about an hour after the Dodgers lost Game 7 of the World Series, according to published media reports and police.

 

Los Angeles Police officers responded to a burglar alarm at a home on Puig’s block around 9:45 p.m., said Officer Rosario Herrera, a department spokeswoman.

 

Officers found a smashed window at the home, and items had been taken, Herrera said. The LAPD’s Commercial Crimes Division is investigating the break-in.

It's still not totally set in. I'm so used to things blowing up at some point it was hard not to believe it would all go wrong somewhere in those last few innings. Initially I thought it was a huge mistake to pull Devenski in favor of a pinch hitter, but it worked out. I'm glad Hinch had enough snap to realize he simply could not trust his bullpen, especially Giles. Morton, Peacock, McHugh...all those guys were starters this year and got multiple innings out of the bullpen. 

 

And the amazing thing is that all of our best players are under contract for another couple years at least, under reasonable pay. Altuve's contract is very nearly highway robbery for the production he gives. And the guy is such an amazing person he just rolls with it. Many other players that broke out in the way he has would be demanding his deal be re-done. He just smiles and plays baseball.

 

Man, I love this team.

Rizzo has the same contract. Dude makes like 7M a year. It's like minimum wage. He's never bitched about the contract he signed.

Anyway, congrats and it honestly took me a good year for the Cubs WS champs to sink in. See ya next year!
