    • I'd completely forgotten how stupid Normal People TV is. I have to watch the MLB games muted. The broadcasts are not tolerable.

      I wish there was an intelligence filter on media (I mean, other than leaving it off). Just like you can opt for gay programming or conservative programming, you should be able to filter for intelligent programming.

      There's stuff out there, it's just virtually impossible to find amid the dreck.

          They've never lost a playoff series. The anti-Twins.

          • Cards bow out the same day Cardinal great Bob Gibson passes away. I never saw him pitch live other than possibly on tv, but I sure would have loved to have that memory. In some ways baseball remains more connected to each of its different eras than other North American team sports, and in other ways it could not be more different from one generation to the next. Bob Gibson and the style of pitching that was with us throughout his career could not be more different than what we watch today.

              • Well, yesterday's games were total garbage.

                  The second game was a pretty good game until the blow out in the top of the ninth. It was a back and forth affair with some crazy hard hit balls.

                  • Red Sox local tv ratings down over 50% from 2019. It will be very interesting to see what they do next year. I think with NHL, NBA, and MLB they play maybe half the games they would in a normal year.

                      This whole round is garbage. Just fast forward to the LCS: Oakland-New York and Los Angeles-Atlanta.

                      I'm dreaming of an all-CA WS. Make the Dumpies even madder.

                        It's 2020. You know that Houston is going to win the WS as a big eff-u to MLB and everyone else. It can't end any other way.

                          I should have clarified. The Yankees being in the game was what made that one garbage.

                            You're probably right, but Miami-San Diego would be hilarious to destroy what's left of the ratings.

                            • The Marlins, a franchise that has been in existence for 27 years and has two World Series titles...

                              ... just lost their first playoff series in franchise history.

                              • All 3 teams to advance to the LCS so far (Los Angeles, Atlanta, Houston) used to play in the National League West. And one beat another member of that 6-team division (San Diego) to get there.
