I almost feel like tonight will decide the series. If we can't capitalize on kluber not being there we don't deserve to win.

Bauer has been dominant vs the Yankees. I understand that decision entirely.

Nope, let's go D-backs!

We have had the Dodgers number lately, here's to hoping we can keep that up.  Would be kind of fun to go up against the Cubs in the next round, if we can both make it out.

Well so far it seems like that Bauer choice was on point.

It was a Bauer outage last night. Jeez the man is nasty. My Sox got beat by Jose Altuve (Pablo Sanchez) alone. Pomeranz is shoving today, although Keuchel scares the shit out of me.

As far as starting Bauer over Kluber, it makes Tito look like a genius. Keeps Kluber on normal rest and steals a game from the Yanks. The key for them tonight is to get to Sabathia early, as he'll likely only be asked to go through the lineup once, maybe twice if he's dominant. Girardi is going to use that lockdown pen to his advantage to change up looks on the Tribe, especially since the bullpen got yesterday off.

The DBacks are gonna have to grind Kershaw out tonight and get his pitch count up early to win. Kershaw fades when he gets 100+ pretty quickly. It's GG if Dave Roberts can go straight from Kershaw to Jansen (and by God he wants to).

Hendricks vs. Strasburg tonight might be the pitching matchup of the day though.

Chicago (Sponsored by Walgreens!) joins the playoffs tonight.  We face off against Dusty Bakers Nats.

I have every bit of confidence in Hendricks.  He has been on fire and almost unnervingly calm on the mound.  Just have to hope our bats come out to play.

I adore the way Hendricks pitches. He's gonna be great tonight, I think the Cubbies win this series in 4 to be honest.

You may not have been paying attention this season.  We're bound to fall asleep at least once this series.

If Cleveland wins game 2, I'm thinking we might just sweep.

Kluber is gonna win the Cy Young and has been dominant against damn near everyone. I like out chances.

Kluber is off tonight. I can't remember the last time he had an off night, but now isn't the time buddy.

The Astro's had that series before it started, sorry to say.  Boston is my second sports city (Except the Pat :puke:) so I've been rooting for them.  Houston is just lining up opponents in firing squad formation.
