Keith, what aspect of the coverage? Agree the TV coverage yesterday was pretty poor. Really seem to be catering to the American audience, I guess. Can't even pronounce
"Toronto".

That's one small step for the Cubs.

Oh forget that... one giant leap!

Phase two complete. Tomorrow will be quite a day in old KC.

Google images for KC blue fountains. It's pretty cool.


Time to dance, just wish I knew how.

I'm hoping game 5 of the playoffs between the Mets and Dodgers goes 21 innings before one of them plays the Cubs .

Wow! Jays pulled that out in a wild one. Total wierdness! I didn't think that they would be able to come back from 0-2 down.

Wild and crazy stuff. I bet those umps are relieved the Jays won. Great pitching tonight from the young Jays pitchers. Also from Hamels. And Joey Bats saving the day. Per usual.

Apparently the Texas governor didn't only jinx the Astros with his premature tweet...

Not as relieved as Russell Martin, hometown boy almost wore the horns! Apparently, umpires made the correct call although I suspect that if the Jays had lost, many would have taken exception to the home plate umpire coming out and waving his arms calling the play dead before the run scored and stopping the Jays from attempting to make a play, not that they could have stopped the run from scoring. In every other sport I can think of, if the official calls the play dead, it is over even if they called it dead in error. All's well that ends well as far as Toronto fans are concerned. Hard to argue that the Rangers deserved to win with the way they played. Aside from the pitchers who were quite good.

Oh, and you could sure tell that it was the American League, the bunting was atrocious. Had to feel for poor Delino DeShields, Jr.

So the championships are set now. The playoffs (in general) seem very different than the regular season. To me, anyway. You gotta feel for the fans of the teams that don't advance.

The couple that rent us an annual beach house are originally from southern IL and are devoted Cards fans. They sent a nice congrats email about the NLDS (genuine) and moved on to the nice improvements awaiting next summer. Class 😀.

I still think of Houston as an NL team. Can't shake the memories.

The Rangers choked like only they can do (well maybe the Cubs could do it too). 4 errors in one inning with only 3 innings to go to put the series away?

Reminds me of when they only needed 1 strike to win the World Series. One strike to 2 different batters and blew it both times.
