I don't like Chris Taylor, but I'm happy the Dodgers won last night. Would have been a shame to see a 106-win team knocked out in single game. Now I hope Lamont Wade can lead the Giants past the Dodgers. Should be a really fun series.

We didn't need him. We had Jake Cave.

Scherzer vs Wainwright was a pretty solid matchup.

No it wouldn't have. If you want to avoid the one game playoff, win your division.

I don't care who leads the Giants past the Dodgers, as long as it happens.

And then I hope the Brewers fiind their way past the Braves and then find their way past the Giants

Rays blank Boston
Shaggy pitches for them.
They are the pitching whisperers
Wes Johnson pales in comparison

And Lance Lynn gets roughed up

That challenging Central competition got him ready for the postseason

Cruz homered for the Rays and Randy Arozarena became the first player in major league history to hit a home run and steal home in the same game. The first straight steal of home in a playoff game Jackie Robinson stole home against Yogi Berra in the 1955 Series.

I have no issue with the Dodgers. Great organization, run by one the greatest baseball executives of all time.

Happy for Cruz. Had a rough go of it inTampa after the trade

The steal of home was awesome

One of the best plays in a while

The funny thing is that Arozarena is nothing special as a base stealer. He has been thrown out on 33% of his attempts.

The Rays totally stole Shane Baz from the Pirates in the Chris Archer trade.

Ben Rortvedt caught a lot of pitches from Baz in the Arizona Fall League.

Arozarena's steal was a thing of beauty.

He read Taylor's stretch move and timed his start perfectly.

I miss Carew's steals of home

One of the boldest things ever was Carew stealing home on his own with Killebrew in the batters box. It inspired the lymeric

So why would the Braves not have a Hank Aaron commemorative patch, but the Brewers do? The Braves lose all respect from me on that. Go Brewers.

What's ridiculous to me is apparently the umps made the correct ruling on the play where the ball bounced over the wall off the Red Sox outfielder. They read the official rule - it was correct. So I guess that means outfielders have to be aware of this rule going forward, so they can always just swipe the ball over the wall after if bounces off the wall and ground.

Crew chief Sam Holbrook and umpire supervisor Charlie Reliford were made available to reporters after Game 3, with Holbrook producing his copy of the 2021 MLB Umpire Manual.

“It's item 20 in the manual, which is, balls deflected out of play, which is in reference to official baseball Rule 5.06(b)(4)(H). It says, ‘If a fair ball not in flight is deflected by a fielder and goes out of play, the award is two bases from the time of the pitch.’”

Holbook added: “Once that ball hit the wall, it was no longer in flight. Now the ball bounces off the wall and is deflected out of play off of a fielder. That’s just a ground-rule double. There’s no ‘He would’ve done this, he would’ve done that.’ It’s just flat out in the rule book. It’s a ground-rule double.”

The rules also provide no umpire discretion as to runner placement. As such, Díaz was returned to third base, to be stranded there when Pivetta struck out Mike Zunino. The Rays challenged the runner placement, which was confirmed by replay.

Oh wow!!! Did you see that high strike called on Franco????? What a joke!!!!! One of the worst strike calls I have ever seen! It was literally at the height of the hitter's helmet brim.

Wow! With the Rays gone one has the Sox, Sox and Asterisk left "to root for" to make it to the WS - too tough to call. It'll be interesting to see which team "develops" as the "favorite" as I continue to watch the playoffs ...

If it's the Red Sux and Ass-tro Holes, I will bring back..."perfect time and place for an asteroid strike"

The Braves are all about 44 - just 'cause they didn't think about putting a patch on the uniform, and the Brewers did, doesn't take away from that one bit - come on now ...
