Way to Go, Dodgers!

It was a thrill to leave choir rehearsal and check the score only to discover that the LA Dodgers were ahead of the Chicago Cubs in the sixth inning with a score of 9-1. I may have to watch a rebroadcast of the game this weekend on MLB just to see how that incredible third inning went.

I know it's a day early; however, I have an early appointment at the beauty shop, so I won't be rushing back to post this. Better prepared than not.

Crazy Collapses!

I had to resort to phone updates after witnessing the epic collapse of the Houston Astros  during the bottom of the seventh inning. I don't even want to recount what happened. It was terrible as though the boys had forgotten what to do to win a baseball game: pitch well, field well, and hit well. They play again at 4:08 P.M. I'll try to watch when I can or at least follow on my workstation machine if I am not in front of a television.

Over in the NLCS, things are going swimmingly for Dodgers fans like me. Cubs fans exited the game as things kept getting worse and worse and worse. I understand the sentiment. There is no rubbing it in on my little blog. It's heartbreaking.

Championship Time!

My co-worker is ecstatic about the win last night. I knew she recorded the game and kept my mouth shut until she returned home from coaching her volleyball teams. My life was safer that way. 😄

Now we get some action in the league championships! Houston hosts New York, and I'm pulling for the "local" team down south. Go, 'Stros! We'll see if Tanaka can handle Keuchel in a pitching duel. Advantage Astros.

Here We Go Again. . .

I was able to watch the game last night with the Tribe hosting the Bronx Bombers. Now manager Joe Girardi won't sit in quite the hot seat for the near future. Such short-sightedness! I am not a Yankees fan, but I tire of the instant villain status afforded managers when they make what they feel in the moment is the best decision. Do they regret decisions that cost them playoff berths or championships? Yes, of course. Just quit the negative natter.

Tonight the Cubs face the Nationals in the NLDS in Washington, D.C. One of my co-workers is a lifelong Cubs fan who has been so happy this past year. We'll see if her Cubs face my Dodgers in a day or two.

Hat Trick!

José Altuve was ON FIRE in the game against the BoSox. Watch out, he is a man with the plan. Congratulations to the Astros on their division game victory. They have work to do tomorrow starting around 1:05 P.M. A hat trick! Three homers? In the same stratosphere as The Babe with post-season homers? Yes, the Lady will toss her hat to celebrate.

The Bronx Bombers got shut out by the Tribe. We'll see how things shape up when Sabathia takes the mound against Kluber.

In the NL world, we have the defending World Series Champions Chicago Cubs at the Washington Nationals. My coworker is a rabid Cubs fan, but I'm going to pull for the Hair Bear and his crew.

My Dodgers take on the red-hot Diamondbacks. Let's hope they cool off those big bats that lit up the Rockies last night. I mean. Wow.
