Sigh. Umps being inconsistent in a big game. That’s fun. Snell getting absolutely squeezed. Valdez getting the calls...For the love of all things Ruth, please get automated strike zones.

Yeesh. Rays are going to blow this series. They just don’t have the offense and their ticky tack way of playing baseball just won’t be good enough to win.

Haha.

I mean, I'm no Astros fan but my dislike of the Rays runs deep. Its fun to see them squirm a little.

Exactly. I know the Astros are punks, but I hate all the Tampa teams. Watching them blow a 3-0 lead is delicious

The Astros have a chip on their shoulder. It would be quite the story if they win it all this year.

Is it really a chip on their shoulder if it's something they did to themselves?

Maybe they watched "The Last Dance" and decided Jordan's "make up some unfair slight against you and use it as motivation" was a good idea.

In this case the slight being completely valid because, well, they cheated and got away with it (at least the players did). Not to mention some of them (Correa) doubling down on being a ###### instead of showing any sort of remorse.

Don’t get me wrong I HATE the Astro’s. But they clearly are trying to prove they belong and can win it without cheating.

With the Jays out, all I have left is the storyline now. I’m most intrigued by the idea of a Dodgers and Astros matchup.

I like entertainment and that would be fantastic.

I wonder if the Astros are stealing any stuff from the Red Sox on their amazing and stunning 3-0 come back against the Yankees in 2004.

Braves are easy to hate, first the chop and now that stupid stirring thing.

Haha that stirring thing is from the 2015 BlueJays. I'm sure AA or Josh Donaldson brought that over.

So Ted Williams famously cryogenically froze himself to come back at a later date. I think he just reincarnated himself in Randy Arozarena. Unbelievable.

I admit I'm intrigued by a LA/Houston final, but the reality is I can't imagine a beanfest in the World Series. It just wouldn't happen. So I'd rather AA get his championship against TB. But I like Tampa as a team - no ego, just solid players.

What makes Carlos Correa extra annoying is that he is very good.

I haven't watched two baseball games in their entirety in one day in a decade, but that was fun today.

Exciting game so far. What was Atlanta doing running on that play - totally amateur. Anyway, it's gonna be a tight game throughout.

Braves just about have the choke complete. Good thing the Hawks usually suck so they can't also break Atlanta fans hearts.
