MLB Playoffs

The Dodgers and Braves are out, so I’m not very interested in the NLCS. Game 5 for the Astros and Rays ALDS starts at 7. If the Astros lose, I might not watch the ALCS or the World Series this year. I just don’t care much for the Rays, Yankees, Cardinals and Nationals.

Productive Day

This was a very productive day. I might’ve kept going, but the Astro-Ray game started and Verlander is pitching. This is Game 4. If the Astros win today, they win the division. If they lose, there’ll be Game 5.

The Braves and Cardinals are 2-2, so are the Dodgers and Nationals. They’ll all settle in their Game 5s.

Oh, and the Yankees already swept out the Twins.

Sports

The Astros just beat Rays again. It was very close there at the end and I went a bit crazy when the Astros won it. They are my number two team after all. One more win and the Astros will have the division. Then they’ll face either the Twins or the Yankees in the ALCS.

I hate the Yankees with passion. I like the Twins only about two or three centimeters more than I hate the Yankees. Maybe it’d be more fun to have the team I hate more play my number two team in the ALCS. So, I guess I’ll pull for the Yankees in their division. Not that they need me. The odds are in their favor, same as the Astros.

In the NLDS, The Cardinals and the Braves are 1-1, so are the Nationals and the Dodgers. I don’t care much for the Cardinals, but I like the Braves. I don’t like the Nationals, but I like the Dodgers. If the Dodgers and the Braves both with their NLDSs, it’ll be tough deciding who to root for in the NLCS.

Michigan beat Iowa earlier today. Michigan State did not manage to beat Ohio State. I hate the Buckeyes more than the Yankees. In fact, I hate the Buckeyes more than I hate the Cowboys and the Indians. I don’t think there’s a team in sports that I hate more than the Ohio State Buckeyes.

So, yeah, I’m disappointed that Sparty failed to wreck what’s looking like a perfect season for the Buckeyes.

American League Wildcard

The American League wildcard game starts in an hour. The Tampa Bay Rays and the Oakland Athletics. In this game, I’m rooting for Oakland. I don’t have anymore shelled peanuts, but I have plenty of beer. Don’t worry, I won’t be hungry, ’cause I’m cooking pork chops.

The Brewers did not win last night, so the Nationals will face the Dodgers in the NLDS.

The End of the Tigers 2019

Well, the Tigers finished their season today. I didn’t see the game, I was at my mom and dad’s watching the Lions. But I checked the score when I got home and see the Tigers lost. I was hoping they could win one more.

This was a rough season and the Tigers finished in last place, so they won’t be in the playoffs. As usual, I’m a bit sad that another Tiger season has ended. I look forward to Spring Training 2020.

I’m rooting for Justin Verlander & the Astros in the playoffs. The Astros finished in first place again. They will play either Tampa Bay or Oakland in the ALDS, depending on who wins the wildcard game. The ALDS starts October 4.

Crap

Know what I didn’t think to do yesterday? DVR the game. I wonder if I might’ve seen myself on TV. At one point, a fly ball came our way and everyone reacted to it. I couldn’t see it, so I kind of freaked out and ducked behind the guy in front of me.

Tigers in Detroit

This is the most beautiful place on Earth and I was thrilled to be there again. Too many years have gone by since I last set foot in this park.

I just got home from the game. The Tigers didn’t win, but it was still great to be there. I’m grateful to my friend Brooke and her husband Tony for getting us all tickets. I had been wanting to go to a game for a very long time. It was me, my sister Nicole and my brother Fred, Brooke and Tony and their kids. The group might have been bigger, but a few people were unable to go.

It rained quite a bit in the middle of the game. They stopped the game for a while and had the tarp over the infield. A few people stayed out in the rain and waited it out, my sister and I among them, but most went up to the higher seats where there is a roof. I’m a hunter, I sit out in the rain a lot, so this wasn’t a big deal for me, especially when it was a warm day.

Well, I checked, and I see the Lions won today. They ended with a tie last week, but they didn’t lose. So, we can say that, so far, the Lions have not lost a game this season.

Go Blue!

Michigan just beat Texas Tech 15-3. There’s one more series for the College World Series. If they win two out of three of those games, they’re the champions.

Game 1 of the CWS Finals will be Monday evening. They’ll play either Vanderbilt or Louisville.

Tigers at 7.

I love baseball.
