    Not so fast

    Big win for KC. Johnny Cueto goes for the series win Wed. night. I hope he gets it done. That slide by Utley was ridiculous; way out of line.

    The Astros bullpen absolutely imploded, not springing for Chapman at the deadline may very well have cost them a World Series ring. This is absolutely wonderful, we are going to be able to get the entire farm for Chapman this winter.

      Not sure about the entire farm, but if the trade of Chapman includes a young OBP guy for the outfield who can lead off, it will certainly help the offense.

    Cubs go back to back…Bryant and Rizzo to take a 5-2 lead

    I live in Chicago and walk to and from the office. When I was walking home from the office tonight it was incredibly windy. I said to myself that I bet balls will be flying out of Wrigley tonight. I just got home and checked the box score. Yes, I guess so.

    I am rooting for the cards. They have always been my second favorite team. Actually, that’s not true the athletics or my second favorite team and till they beat us in the World Series.

    That would be Soler getting those 2 runs back.

    The amount of young (and cheap) offensive talent Epstein & Co. have collected is staggering.
    Rizzo (signed/under team control through 2021).
    Bryant.
    Schwarber.
    Soler (signed through 2020).
    Baez.
    Russell.
    Just incredible. Bringing in Dexter Fowler was a sage move, too. Starlin Castro ain’t bad either.

      Very impressive work by Epstein. That is excellent GM work.

    Brett Anderson is human batting tee reminding me of Holmberg and Marquis. After Kershaw and Greinke Dodgers pitching is awful.
