I guess I called it correctly. Greinke pitched a gem last night and held a 2-0 lead for most of the game. He did give up a homerun in the 7th inning and shortly thereafter was replaced, it was a good call, he had done his job. Now it’s up to the bullpen.
Well, they shit the bed.
Needless to say, the Nationals drove in a bunch more runs and won the World Series. Oddly enough, the visitors won all of the games which has never occurred before. Congratulations to the Nationals.
I would say that the Astros need to do some work in the off-season getting their pitching in order. The bullpen needs work and they will lose a starter or two, for sure. I am unsure on position players, that will be seen over the coming weeks and months.
So, it’s now the off-season. On to football and some hockey. The Bills are doing pretty well, although they lost last week in a game that just about everyone expected them to win. In all honesty, I don’t know how the Flames are doing overall. I have watched part of one game up to this point.
Baseball starts back up in February with Spring Training and my MLB.tv subscription will renew at the end of February. It’s a long season, but, it IS the best sport around.
I will now tend to hibernate a lot. I will go to bed early and hopefully sleep in a bit, you know, like 4am or so. It’s the end of October and I am sure it will be the end of the year before we know it.
Happy Halloween to all, be safe out there tonight.
