    I thought I saw on Twitter that he has dead arm.

    How fragile are modern baseball players? Despite an extra day of rest Max Scherzer still can't go tonight? How in the hell can throwing one unplanned inning 9 days earlier still be messing him up? It isn't like his team needs him to throw 9 innings on two days rest or throw 3 complete games in a 7 game series. How about taking the ball and giving them 6 innings? What a wimp.

    From the looks of it, the Dodgers acquiring Scherzer and Trea Turner really didn't matter so much. They didn't catch San Francisco and their lead over St. Louis finished at 16 games. Hard to believe they would have coughed that up regardless. Scherzer only pitched 4 innings on full rest in the WC game and wasn't the winner, anyone could have lost for the Dodgers in game 3 against the Giants since they didn't plate a single run and he didn't do much in game 2 against the Braves. After leading the league in hits during the regular season, in the post season Turner is hitting 100 points below his season average. He's scored just 2 runs and driven in just 2, after finishing the regular season 107 and 77 respectively. Fortunately for LA these deadline trades usually don't end up in getting rental players and giving up Walter Johnson or Hank Aaron types.

    Agreed. This postseason absolutely sucks. Given that it looks like Houston is all but assured of reaching the World Series, I guess Go Dodgers...which probably means they'll get a 10 spot hung on them by the end of the 2nd inning tomorrow. : (

    OK, so my fear of Atlanta beating LA and giving the Red Sox home field advantage with the possibility of me having the slightest chance of the having tickets to a potential World Series Game 7 series clinching game and not being able to go due to work has now dissipated given the collapse Tuesday, last night's awful loss and Atlanta now being one win away from the World Series. Just what I wanted for my birthday - a loss to close out the ALCS. Oh well.

    Another post-season, another list of former Twins doing better than they ever did for the "Twin Cities" logo.

    Yeah, after a 60 game regular season. Big asterisk in my book.
