So does anyone have any idea how we will be able to use stats for a two-way player like Otani next season?

I've been a die hard Dodger fan since age five; through the good times and the bad (McCourt years); and have been patiently waiting since 1988 for their return to the World Series. No matter if it's the Astros or Yankees, this should be a very good matchup.

Go Blue Crew!

Welp, my Yankees almost made it ahead of schedule, but I’ll still call it a successful season. Should be a good matchup in the WS this year! Definitely hoping Kershaw gets his. He deserves it!

Also, I’m applying for a national law school competition where we’re assigned players/teams to represent in arbitration. It’s in Feb in NoLa. First round of apps is due on Thursday. Simple enough, just have to show that we know baseball by writing about the most important stats/traits in evaluating talent vote yes

Dodgers fans are a joke, ITS THE WORLD SERIES... They are acting like its game 63 of the regular season... Get on your damn feet.... Not to mention the seats behind home plate aren't even filled.

I agree.  Just wish the Blue Crew were heading to Houston up 2-0.  My weekend schedule is set.

I really don't have a rooting interest one way or another.  I'm more of a NL guy and I still think of the Astros being in the NL.  shrug

When I don't have a rooting interest, I love watching the pressure & tension build after each pitch.  Tonight's relievers were having a tough time with the enormity of the game and getting outs.  In the bottom of the 11th, the Dodgers were hitting the ball on the nose, even on the outs (line drive to center & 3b).  I love watching the aces of each staff battle each other as every pitch is so crucial.  This looks like it's going to be a see-saw battle to the end.

Top of the 4th?
Because it's almost 4 o'clock

No runs?
No rum

1 hit?
1 tit

0 errors?
Toilet seat looks like a 0

I love these nail-biter games.  Every pitch & at bat is so crucial.  I'd bet we won't be seeing Ken Giles anymore in crucial situations.

Thanks Keith. I'm more tired emotionally than physically.

Like I said, I've been a Dodgers fan close to 50 years and obviously disappointed, but this has been a great series. The Dodgers needed that win especially with Kershaw as the starter. Verlander versus Hill has me worried.

I'm still looking for a ticket for tomorrow night. I have a decision to make. Buy one ticket or use the money for my daughters college. They're about the same price.

Tell your daughter to get good grades so she can earn a full ride scholarship and get your ass to the game!  The atmosphere is going to be epic, you won't want to miss it.  vote yes

Tell your daughter to just take a student loan with no intention to ever pay it back. isn't that what kids expect these days

Bullpens for both teams have been beaten & battered.  How do you pull Hill after only 58 pitches?  Give him a chance to get that final out. shrug

Bregman is a beast on Lefties. That being said, Dave Roberts has some big balls to put Morrow in after the beating he took a few nights ago. Heard Honeycutt the pitching coach is leaving after the season. IMO it should be the over rated Roberts, he has killed the Dodgers bullpen this post season.

I don't care what sport it is, game 7's are the bomb! Can't wait to see what type of pitching remains with these 2 teams. May shift back to it being advantage: hitters.

I can't wait for tonight's game. I ended up not going, but not because of lack of trying to get a ticket. It's been difficult for many want to go to find even a seat for one. One person just bought two tickets behind home plate for 17k.

It's a good thing my wife and two daughters are fans because tonight it's all about baseball.

Not even 3 innings in and we have already seen multiple records broken/tied.  Most HBP by a single pitcher, most strikeouts by a guy player in a WS, only second starting pitcher ever to go fewer than 2 innings in both his starts, and tied for most HRs by a player in a single WS, and only second time a pitcher has played in all 7 games.

Edit: Another one just mentioned, only game 7 where neither starter made it 3 innings.
