I'll be bandwagoning the Nationals (is it bandwagoning if I live in DC?) since Pittsburgh is pretty much done, too.  A DC/Baltimore World Series is too much to hope for, sadly.

I've stopped telling the husband that there's still plenty of time for the Cubs to choke.  It's no fun to ruin his hopes like this.

Still, the Cubs couldn't even win the division properly - they had to let the Cards do it for them.  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

Talent is talent. Bad pitchers vs good hitters should be a bad combo for the pitching team.

Sure. But a fresh bad/OK pitcher is often worse than a tired good one. Add in the inability to get more than an at bat worth of looks, or even much of a "pass down information" and things get a lot harder real fast.

By this logic there should be no such thing as a bad relief pitcher, when in fact bullpens are teeming with them.

There indeed are. But you're overselling the statement. Relief pitchers tend to fall off faster than starters and have generally worse stuff, but that doesn't mean that their one inning performance is necessarily worse than the 7th inning performance of a starter.  It also means that, if you're able to throw every pitcher in your bullpin you have a very high likelihood of getting out of each inning before those pitchers performance drops to dangerous levels.

edit: I mean if ballclubs could throw 9 pitchers per game they would do it. They can't not because starters are so much better than they want to throw them as much as possible, but because they would need to have 27 pitchers on their roster in order to meet rotational needs when they only have maybe half of that.

Marlins' Ace Jose Fernandez Killed in Boating Accident.

24 years old. Fuck. Probably would have been a Hall of Fame pitcher if his health had held up. Sounds like the boat was going too fast and none of the guys on it were wearing safety vests.

I'm so confused and just gut-punched by his death. He was a phenom that had a Cam Newton like smiling personality when he played. He legit loved his job more than half the highly paid guys taking the field. It fucking sucks.

I remember the one involving Cleveland players in the early 1990's.  Sad times, esp. with Fernandez being so young.

Hit a jetty going way to fast in the dark. They were wearing vests according to reports and it wouldn't have mattered. He was killed on impact, not by drowning.

AL worked out exactly as I hoped it would (after the Mariners crapped their pants, that is). I am tempted to fly to NE and bathe in the tears of Red Sox fans.

Sad to see Ortiz finally go though.  I always liked that dude.

Also, I know the whole "torture baseball" thing with the Giants is a bit of a meme.  But fuck, it's true.  They are especially going out of their way this season to make everything gut wrenching.

See, I'd really like to see the Cubs finally win.  Honestly.

But Giants are still somehow in it, so fuck off and die.   why so serious?

But like, oh man.  If we manage to bubblegum and duck tape our way to another World Series Win on an even year.  That's like, perfect baseball mysticism mumbo jumbo right there.  It would be epic.

Buy a meal? Shit, if the Cubs win the series, that motherfucker will OWN that city or at least the north side.

What a game. I'm sitting there in the 8th inning getting all Cubs-pressed - you know, 'GODDAMNIT, here we go again" kind of thing. San Fran has been pushing the Cubs all night with nothing but single after single by these guys who are just no name scrubs other than Buster Posey and guy-who-looks-like-he-lives-under-a-goddamn-bridge Hunter Pence. Matt Moore is striking dudes out left and right and none of the Cubs' big name hitters are hitting diddly shit.

Then Bruce Bochy decides that changing his pitcher after every hit is a good idea and holy fuck. I realize he didn't have a closer (or a true power hitter) but goddamn. It was like ADHD manager here. There's matchups and then there's just jittery knee jerk pulling a pitcher. I don't know that any of those pitchers could have stopped the Cubs but that was an EPIC bullpen collapse that wasted what was otherwise a fantastic outing by a starting pitcher.

I just hope the Cubs big bats heat the fuck up because 5 of their first 6 hitters in the lineup are flailing. Also, can the Cardinals take Jason Heyward back? Jesus, motherfucker can't even put down a bunt worth a fuck, and it's only the fact that he can run fast that the Giants didn't turn 2 on his dumbass.

Honestly, I think people here are more sad about Ortiz retiring than being knocked out of the playoffs.
