    • Confirmed that there is no re-seeding. Also, extra innings will be played like normal. No runner at 2nd. Thank you!

      This Postseason feels more legitimate in some ways. Almost no days off for teams between games. So you'll have to use more than 2 starters to get you through. No home field advantage. More of a true neutral site / who's better matchup.

      • What happens if a team can't play due to infections? (Hey, it's a legit question!)

              bleacher report is picking a Dodgers-Twins WS (Dodgers in 7).
              That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

                • I see the Twins are gonna Twin. No reason for this game to be tied, or for Romo to be pitching in the 9th.

                      The Twins have two hits. It's sort of hard to claim they should be in the driver's seat in this game.

                      • Surprise i was right! Garbage defense and garbage pitching leads to the Astros leading.

                        SJH. My point was that they are 0-7 with risp. They've squandered chances.

                          But also the offense is completely dead

                            I wouldn't blame Romo there. Two bloop singles, an error, and a close call on a walk isn't exactly "garbage" pitching.

                            Typical Minnesota sports though...choke in the playoffs. Sigh.

                                Thats literally the story every time he pitches recently. At some point he has to find a way to not give up hits.
