    Looks like Astros are thru already after only 10 pitches for Glasnow in the 1st!

    I was rooting for TB so disappointed in the result but On the bright side, the Yankees/Astros match up is going to be great.

    All kinds of articles this a.m. about how Glasnow was tipping his pitches. Oh well. See you in 2020, Tyler.

    Hey, I thought this Nats bullpen was supposed to be dodgy!

    Although having your starter go 7 no hit innings helps I suppose.

    It was impressive alright. Sanchez can do this, and a hot pitcher in the offseason can make all the difference. Cf: 1988 Dodgers&Orel Hershisher (who was beyond hot to the point of unconscious out there. Mike Scott 1986 too.)

    Or Cole Hamels for the Phillies in 08

    18 innings, 1 run is pretty damn impressive from the Nats.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 13,687 ✭✭✭✭jack presley


    Houston Astros, 0 runs scored. Must be a long time since that happened in a game I reckon.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 13,687 ✭✭✭✭jack presley


    Serious ass kicking been given to the Cards by the Nats in the NLCS.

    Some performance alright. I was wondering if the Nats make the World Series would Bryce Harper regret leaving them. But a 330 million contract does will soften the blow a bit:)

    Nats peaking at the right time. Corbin for the win tonight.
    Impressive, and they'll be well rested, whether that's actually a thing or not in the playoffs.

    Only one team (95 Braves) went onto win WS after sweeping either NLCS or ALCS since it changed to best-of-7 in 1985.

    Nice start to this game.

    Whoever loses this game is going to be cursing the amount of men left on base. And it's only been 2 innings!


  • Registered Users Posts: 3,468 ✭✭✭Comic Book Guy


    Wow that was close!


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,172 ✭✭✭✭kmart6


    Wow that was close!
    Regular season ball would have carried.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,585 ✭✭✭circular flexing


    Nationals going to have a nice break now. Cardinals heads not in the game at all.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,469 ✭✭✭ShyMets


    Fair play to the Nats. I didn't see that coming at the start of the season. I'm now a fully signed up member of the Nats bandwagon


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 13,687 ✭✭✭✭jack presley


    ALCS Game 4 postponed.

    Not just the start of the season, mid May you would have been mad to suggest the Nats would make the World Series. It really has been some run since then.

    WORLD SERIES!

    Unreal.

    I'm going to have to fly to Washington for a game or two. Just to be in the City, my wife is there now has been since 9th Oct and she said its just bonkers.

    Unreal!


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,585 ✭✭✭circular flexing


    Interesting article on Stanton - effectively Yankees are playing with a 24 man roster because Stanton is injured yet they don't want to take him off the roster because that would make him ineligible for the WS

    Pity the NHL season has started as I'm sure Alex Ovechkin would love to be involved in the partying.

    I'm sure he will still find a way.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,585 ✭✭✭circular flexing


    Not looking for Yankees now - they need to beat Verlander and Cole. They seemed to throw in the towel during the later innings too.


    Nice ovation for CC Sabathia though - probably his last appearance before retirement, shame it had to end in injury.

    Pure tribalism, but I always struggle to cheer on another NL team when the Dodgers lose.

    Lets go 'Stros :D

    I’m kind of the same but as a Mets fan I can’t support the Yankees and I still don’t like the way the Astros tanked for a few years so I’m kind of leaning Nats.

    They don’t seem like an obnoxious group of players and their fan on here is a good bloke and as he is a fellow Redskins fan, he probably deserves a bit of success

    There's a very interesting interview with him in the Athletic. "They made their, decision, I made mine" is one of the quotes and he says he isn't jealous at all. I'm sure $330m softens the blow but that can't be true, can it?

    I'm sure Bryce is only thrilled for his former team mates:)
