Houston Astros Win It

The Houston Astros just won the World Series. I wonder if this is it for Justin Verlander’s career as a player. He’s reminding me of Kevin Costner’s character, Billy Chapel, in the movie “For the Love of the Game”. The other night when Verlander pitched to his former teammate, Nick Castellanos, it was like the scene from the movie, when Billy Chapel is pitching to his former teammate and he’s thinking, “When did we get so old?”

Also saw Michigan beat Rutgers 52-17. The Wolverines are now 9-0 for the season.

Regular Season Nearly Over

As the regular season nears its end, I continue to watch the Detroit Tigers. They’re in last place, they have no hope of reaching the playoffs. But I remain a loyal fan and I will follow them to the end. The Tigers swept the Chicago White Sox over the weekend, now they’re playing the Kansas City Royals. There are two more series after the Royals.

The Cleveland Guardians. New York Yankees, Houston Astros, New York Mets, Atlanta Braves and Los Angeles Dodgers are going to the playoffs. Of those teams, I would root for the Astros, Dodgers and Braves.

None of the teams in the National League Central have secured a playoff berth yet. The St. Louis Cardinals are leading there, but the Milwaukee Brewers have a chance of taking it. I’m rooting for the Brewers there.

Lions and Tigers

Lions won by one point. 27-26. I thought they played well. It was just a preseason game, but nice to have football back. I didn’t see last weeks’ game. I know they lost last week, but I hear they played very well.

Just switched over to Bally. Looks like Tigers won by one run. 4-3.

Football

Tigers are playing on another channel and I thought I would switch from game to game, watch some here and some there. But I can’t reach the remote control, so I’m just watching the Lions. The game is tied. 3rd Quarter just started.
