The only consolation I have for my 101 loss Cubbies is giving Theo Epstein 2 more years to rebuild.

We have been rebuiliding for over a hundred years, whats 2 more?

Gonna have to disagree with you on that one, Epstein is overrated.

Man, Orioles beat the Rangers and Cardinals beat the Braves. I was predicting exactly the opposite for both games! Crazy night of baseball.

Theo Epstein brought Boston 2 WS after what, 80 years? Not sure how that is over-rated.

Truth is Boston is (almost) as poorly handled as my Cubbies, just Boston spends more.

I was really hoping the Rangers would pull this one out, but it looks like we're headed to Baltimore. Yanks win in 4. O's don't have the experience to hang with the big boys.

Agreed. Their pitching is in disarray. They don't even know who will be starting Game 1.

Ughhh.. my boy Andy pitched his heart out and of course - we just can't get the timely hits. Shit is pathetic.

In any event, back to NY we go. Yanks in 4.

Still agreed. That one is all the Birds are going to get. They thought Baltimore was noisy? They haven't seen anything yet compared to Yankee Stadium in the postseason. They haven't been to the playoffs in so long, they won't know what hit them.

So glad Girardi pinch hit A-Rod last night. He sucks, and it's extremely difficult to root for him. Waste of $29M/yr.

RAAAAAAAAAAUUUUUUUULLLLLLL!

For you Yankee fans, Jeter's injury sucks. Really, I'm not being sarcastic. I heard something on the radio but I'm not sure if its true. This is the first time since 1981 that neither Jeter or Mariano Reverez have been in the Yankees postseason lineup.

I'm pretty sure you mean 1991?

First time since 1995 neither has been in a postseason lineup. Jeter's first game was in May 95. Mariano really didn't get his chance to shine until Wetteland was gone, which was after the 95 season.

In any event, Jeter's injury was a HUGE blow to the team's morale. He may be the shortstop of the Yankees, but he means much more to the team (and the fans) than just playing an infield position. It really really sucks.

As for tonight's game - we got frickin shafted by serious poor calls by the umps. I couldn't believe my eyes when the ump called Infante safe on Cano's tag.

Is it just me or has the strike zone as a whole been *dynamic*. Every game I have watched the strike zone isn't consistent.

Some of the calls have really left me scratching my head

These blues have got to get their eyes checked. I saw the ump during the ALDS vs Baltimore call a strike on a pitch in the opposite batters box. I couldn't believe it, he then proceeded to call a ball at a pitch at shin/knee level. I don't believe that baseball should be run by instant replay, but good grief - moments like those make me want it.

Can you believe how far the Orioles went this year?!?! Where did that come from? I am actually looking forward to next year. How awesome would it be fore Baltimore to have a competitive baseball team. This is a sports town, I never understood why Mr. Angelos never saw the need to build a competitive team. His profits would soar if he would increase his payroll. Maybe he will see that now and keep it going. We would all rather see him sell the team to someone else who wants to keep the team in Baltimore and keep it competitive.

I think he's seen how competitive the team has become without investing anything too large. Personally, anything over 5 years for a player is too much in this day and age. These stupid 10 year contract should never exist.

Definitely bro. I've always been against his contract. The Yankees should have traded up for Miguel Cabrera, then signed him long term.

Put a fork in em. Another injury, but this time to the starting rotation. I really don't see us pulling off a 4-game streak vs Detroit just to face Verlander again in G7. Our bats look pathetic are feeble at best, and it shows. Maybe next year boys when we've got a 110% healthy roster

At least your team didn't flop the entire season of August and lose it on the last day of the season. Oh well, there's always next year.

Giants are playing their hearts out. I'm really hoping they can scratch out a win tonight. I think a Giants/Tigers WS would be pretty legit.

I don't care who wins, but if I had to pick between the two - I'd say Giants b/c Posey is a beast and I want to see him rack up some rings.

Giants put the screws to Verlander yesterday. I was surprised as hell to witness it. In any event, they play too well at home to go down like chumps (like my beloved Yankees did).

From a .099 career hitter

What a game last night. Bumgarner pitched marvelously. That tag at home on Fielder was on-point and a great call by the ump.

Giants deserved being the WS champs. And good ridence to Mark McGuire as batting coach for the Cardinals. He was trying to make all the batters home run hitters!

That's what he's known for, after all. Lol

Anyone got thoughts on the big Marlins-Jays trade? Seems blatantly unfair for the Marlins to give Buehrle and Reyes backloaded contracts and then dump them on other teams so that they barely paid the players at all.

My thoughts are.. it's a crock of s**t! I cannot for the life of me comprehend how Selig could let something like this happen. As for Loria, that guy is lower than dirt. I'm surprised he hasn't been found dead somewhere in Miami. Ultimately, I feel terrible for the fans that bought into his ploy to build a championship-caliber team.

I know the Marlins have a history of dumping salary so there is that, but how is this different than what the Sox did? It's not like the Marlins didn't get young talent back. I do think the fans are holding out for a "good" owner there though and its possible that no matter what they do the fans won't show up until Luria is gone.

You should already know how I feel about that

As for the "young talent" they received in return, Yunel Escobar is a terrible SS. He's never adjusted to playing in the AL after being traded from Atlanta. It's one thing to be a poor hitter, but his defensive sabermetrics have slipped a bit too.

Too bad the Dodgers don't need the Yankees bad contract too

It's different because just a year ago, the Marlins conned the taxpayers of Miami into buying them a new stadium by pretending that they would be serious about improving the club.

Marlins trade is a baseball tragedy, and Bud Selig deserves his share of blame - Yahoo! Sports

Highly recommended article.
