    Yeah, figured with Houston in the Central time zone that would be the case. I'm more interested in the games here, though, for next week. Trying to determine if I need to block time off from work, who goes to which game (I have tickets). I know, I know, first world problems and all. Am I'm absolutely not gloating. It's all about me trying to schedule and I cannot find the info and it's stressing me out. So, if all of you could help me out with my reasoning....

    - Atlanta beats Milwaukee - done
    - Atlanta is in Eastern time zone
    - If Dodgers win, Atlanta has games 1 and 2, correct? Cuz LA was the Wild Card? Which means games 3-4 are on the west coast
    - If San Fran wins, who has games 1 and 2? Atlanta or San Fran?
    - If Atlanta, games 3-4 will be on west coast and game times could be staggered
    - If San Fran, games 1 and 2 are on West Coast and 3-4 are in Atlanta. Which is same time zone as Sox Houston.
    - Will FOX schedule a weekday afternoon game or will FS1 pick up a game and the games run at the same time?

    And to follow up on my question about how it's now determined who gets to be the home team for the series - while I absolutely terrified of thinking ahead - World Series Game 7 is scheduled for November 3rd. I am flying to DC that day for my first business trip that I do not want to go to. In the off chance the Sox beat Houston and make it to the World Series (not expecting to and I really don't want to look ahead) and the Series goes seven games - will that be at Fenway or the NL team? Because I have tickets and the thought of missing a Series clinching game....it may never happen again. It probably won't happen at all, but still. Yes, this is the way my mind works.

    ETA: did MLB stop using the winner of the All Star Game to determine the World Series home team?

    Yes. A long time ago.

    I wasn't cheering for Chicago, but I definitely wasn't cheering for Houston. Meh.

    (which doesn't make it any less neat.)
    1. Buster Posey is very good.
    2. He's also had some great pitchers over the last decade to work with: Big Time Timmy-Jim-Jim, Cain, Bumgarner.

    Robles pitched in the Wild Card game last week and did a good job. I was more curious last night as to why Cora took out Josh Taylor, who had a great 1-2-3 inning. Braiser didn’t get one out and gave up the tying runs. Let Taylor start the inning, see how it goes, take him out if necessary.

    Sunday was great and wow it was electric and the walk off HR by Vazquez, the place erupted. Sitting in section 10 was very tense at times especially when Robles came in. I said to myself it's not a good move and sure enough the game was tied. I think Cora was very lucky that they won the game else he would have been rightly criticized for bringing in Robles who during the summer in a game got lit up for 2 HRs in relief. He was just awful.

    But the ground rule double I had no idea as most people in my section thought the Rays took the lead until the rule was explained.

    I was following the game on my phone last night, and pleasantly surprised they took the early lead but then the Rays tied it up. But luckily they won again on a walk off sac fly )
