(Yes, that's FIVE homers given up in 5 1/3 innings in the playoffs for him.)

Bochy has always been a really good October manager, so his affinity for Strickland really puzzles me. He should not sniff another appearance on the mound in the rest of the series if there is ANY reasonable doubt about the outcome of the game.

My guess, that's the last we'll see of Strickland this series.

I am going to game 3 tomorrow. It's going to be crazy. In the meantime, I am enjoying the SF skyline as many buildings have turned their orange lights on for the Giants.

The good thing about being a Cubs fan is that you never have to find a World Series ticket

Yes, I do. But DW is a HUGE fan and she's not giving up her seat.

Hmmmm. ok. I see where your loyalty lies. So, get up early. Hang out in Union Square. Take her to the Daily Grill for lunch, and then a long walk (or peddy cab) along the Embarcadero to the ballpark. Enjoy.

Now turn that computer thingy off and enjoy some wine. I would, with that view.

With Washington gone, they at least have a chance to do better...
