Meanwhile Brian and I remember when the Dodgers were in Brooklyn and the fans had to dodge traffic to safely get into Ebbets Field.  He'd have been just a young fella when the Dodgers came to town.  OHhhh the magic!!!  From Flatbush to Cali.  And the Giants too.  All of a sudden the home state became THE place to be...or so it seemed...and the myth began to take shape.

All it needed was a soundtrack.

Brian?

Congrats to Houston for beating the Evil Empire to the World Series and becoming the first time in MLB history to represent both leagues in the World Series (they appeared as NL Champs in 2005).

I wish that were true for a different orange team, but I digress.  

As long as the pinstripers didn't make it, I'm happy.  

Since they've never won a championship before, I wouldn't mind seeing them go on to beat the Dodgers.

Anyone beating the Dodgers is good. [wink]  Especially Houston this year!

The Giants (and about a million fans) proudly wore orange and black during their last World Series parade on Halloween, 2014.

well-played game 1, hats off to the Dodgers for holding serve.  But if only the Strohs can steal one tonight at Chavez ravine, with Verlander...it's up for grabs!

Yep - Keuchel was very good, but Kershaw was excellent.  With Sandy Koufax and Vin Scully in the stands...and Kershaw on the mound...the baseball gods had to grant dem bums a win. 

Crucial game tonight - If Verlander wins, I'd bet on the Astros to take 3 of 5 thereafter.

Verlander is the MAN!
I'm a Tigers fan who is rooting for the Astros.

GREAT game last night, hope you guys saw it.  It was the kind of game that even people who don't love baseball would appreciate, featuring high drama and amazing performances under high duress.  Baseball above all other sports can be the most like those old TV shows with the bomb that needs to be diffused by the hero...as the clock tics down, and he wipes his brow, and which cord should he cut?  what if it's the wrong one?  This game was like that inning after inning.  Two great teams, but I think Houston just became the favorite.  Consider: to start with it was best of 7, with 4 games in Los Angeles.  Now, it's best of 5 with 3 of those in Houston, and Kershaw can realistically only pitch 1 of those.  I'm feeling confident.

but guess what?   I thought the Dodgers were soulless Pat Boones, who buy up a team like the evil Yankees of past...they buy so many players they don't even have room for them all.  What happened to Adrian Gonzales?  He's A-Gone to the bank and then A-Gone on vacation, not even interested enough to watch from the bench. 

anyway, the Dodgers 2017 do have a heart, and his name is Yasiel Puig.  Did you see him get SO mad at himself for almost making a near-impossible catch?  He caught that, a pic of him would go next to Willie Mays.  I wanted to comfort him, pat him on the shoulder.  that's okay, man.   No ONE is going to say one negative word to you, you were fantastic to get close to that ball.!  Your team plays like you do, that it's THAT important to them, you guys can still be champs...

I think Adrian Gonzalez is hurt, but it's very odd that he wouldn't at least want to be on the bench.  How often as a player do you get to experience a World Series?  And a possible clubhouse champagne celebration.   

Apparently, Justin Turner (yay, another Orioles cast off helps his team to the World Series) tried to convince him to postpone his vacation until after the WS to no avail.  

I remember the 1995 World Series.  Dave Winfield was playing with the AL Champion Indians, and he was at the tail end of a HOF career, and the tank was on 'E.'  Since he really wasn't a contributing factor to Cleveland's success, he was left off the postseason roster, but he was on the bench, rooting his team on.

From Brian's Twitter account:

Someone does write below that he had the ability to be pro baseball.  He definitely was an athlete (with the corresponding pushy father).
