It was a strange one. I felt very relaxed throughout the whole series. Always felt like we'd have to beat ourselves rather than the Rays beat us.
Very different from the series against the Astros and Red Sox in 17 and 18.

Stayed up for the first two innings last night. Wife had moved into another bed last night due to the noise of the wind. I couldnt sleep properly, and kept an eye on my phone. Refused to stream the game, as I worried that I wouldn't turn it off.
Finally caved in the 6th, just in time to see both Dodgers runs.

Strange situation with Turner. Wonder will anything come from that.
Interested in seeing where the Dodgers add players for next season. Could improve in left field potentially, and probably need to think about a new closer.

Congrats. Fully deserved World Series. Its not always that the best team in the regular season wins in the Post Season.

Cant believe its their first title since 1988. For some reason I thought they had won one more recently.

Anyway looking forward to a Dodgers v Mets World Series last year

Oh so the Chicago white sox hiring tony La Russa as their manager(again) wasn’t stupid Twitter rumour. Well okay then. He’s in his mid seventies so some on that team could be younger then his grandchildren. I take it La Russa isn’t an analytics guy which may be a good thing.

Looks like AJ Hinch will be rejoining the managerial world with the Tigers

The Wilpons are gone. A day to rejoice. Free agency starts tomorrow. It will be interesting to see how the Mets approach it. I fully expect them to make some kind of splash.

The only disappointment is that BVW is still there. But hopefully not for much longer

GM's come and go. Owners have a habit of being there a very long time. This is a good day. The Wilpons were a drag on and a cloud over this team since Madoff. An amazing run in 2015 made their tenure look slightly respectable, but that was the only time under their exclusive ownership the team got close.

Good riddance, Wilponzis!

Brodie Van Wagenen is leaving hid position as GM. No great surprise. Delighted to see the back of him

Have there been any agents as GM's prior to BVW? He was a pretty lousy GM overall.

Not sure how long Sandy Alderson lasts, hopefully not very. Time to clean house completely.

Guess that explains his numbers last season. Jeff McNell can step in and be the everyday second baseman.

Not sure what it means from a salary point of view
