ALDS Game 1 Thread

The White Sox and Astros play, followed by the Red Sox and Rays. Under ratings logic, the Central Time Zone game goes first, and the Eastern Time Zone goes later. Go figure.

Since I want Houston and Chicago to lose I think the best would be for their series to go five and disrupt their pitching so Tampa (please!!) Will have an easier time in the ALDS

And the Rays crush the Sux. As it was meant to be. How do you like those beans, Sux fans? Angels games when they are playing the Sux, and their transplant fans show up, are horrible.

I’m not saying I’d like to kill John Smoltz. Or even that I wish him dead. That would be extreme. I just wish there was a drug that would permanently disable a guy’s ability to speak. Then I’d drop everything in my life, move to wherever he lives, a one-man sleeper cell, and get a job in the restaurant he frequents most. I’d work way way up from busboy to dishwasher to waiter. Then, I’d slip it in his drink.

Too extreme? Y? N?

Will it work on both sexes? (at least the main 2?)

Matt V is quitting his job at ESPN on Sunday. Does that mean he is going to spend more time with the Angels or less time?

Since he likes to work remotely maybe the A’ss will hire him? I’m not sharing him with the A’ss. They can have him.

I was just watching, on youtube, the Rich Eisen show and David Samson (former Prez of the Marlins) said, in no uncertain terms, the Angels have long had an agreement with Shohei to extend him to a large contract. Ok.

Well, that would be great news if true.

David Samson? You mean the guy who helped his Step father defraud the City of Miami and Dade County? I believe everything he says.

I am once again calling out Nelson Cruz for still benefitting from his PED use into his 40s.

I bet he’d test clean now, but the advantage is still there.

Same thing happened to David Ortiz.

I completely agree with you. The illegal substance stays in their system far beyond the penalty.

some players hit wind-aided HRs, some hit steroids-aided HRs.

The Rays are too good to have to host playoff games in this stadium. It looks so damn drab on TV

just the one batter. Good. Now I can go back to hoping the Sux pitcher gets rocked.

That hit by Renfroe reminded me of Don Baylor- he’d hit it so hard, it would rocket to right, bounce off the wall back to the fielder, and Groove would end up with a Warp 5 single. Let’s go Rays!!

Let’s go Tampa!

pretty sure I’ll be rooting against the winner of this series in the ALCS, even if the Sux are in it.

I want neither team to score but that would mean both teams are pitching well and I’d like all the pitchers to get hit hard but that would mean both teams would score, which I don’t want.

this is really funny. I see Lynn walked a batter and, because I want Lynn to do badly, I think “good!” and then I remember an Astro got on base and I think “oh f—!” The best thing to do is walk away from this series.

Lots of hits, errors, GIDP, LOBsters?

Wish McCullers was a FA after this season (he is good). At least, with the new contract, he gets more expensive moving forward – they can’t keep paying all of those players moving forward, and their window is clearly closing.

they started with a good plan in 2020, I think it was. They went after guys and got ’em, while other teams (cough..) didn’t. Maybe I misremember but I believe they signed players quickly while others (cough…again) dithered.
