I don't know if he's any good but he has a cool name
The Astros swept the Twins in the first round of the AL playoffs.
Damn I just heard the postseason started. And these cheaters have won the first 2. Is it best of 3? Dats weak.
yep, with no days off during the rounds, best of 5 series would play 5 days in a row if necessary,.. world series is different
No travel day?
Division Series, League Championship Series and World Series all will be played at neutral-site locations,
The best-of-three Wild Card Series, best-of-five Division Series and best-of-seven League Championship Series will each take place without any off-days in between games. Teams will have to decide whether to use the traditional five-man rotation, or utilize four starting pitchers, with the potential for as many as three of them pitching on short rest.
Each series will be preceded by at least one off-day, though more are possible depending on when other series are completed.
No where else to put this
For fans outside of Houston, this MLB playoffs matchup will be a clear case of 2020's baseball villains -- the Houston Astros -- against an Oakland Athletics team with as much animosity toward them as anyone in baseball. It's also a matchup of the two teams that have dominated the top of the American League West standings in recent year.
Where do we begin? Oakland starter Mike Fiers -- a former Astros pitcher -- is the player who initially called out Houston's sign-stealing antics, setting all of this offseason's fallout in motion. Tempers boiled over when the two teams met earlier in the 2020 season when A's outfielder Ramon Laureano charged the Astros' dugout after being hit by a pitch for the third time in the series in an incident that triggered multiple suspensions....... Game 1: Monday, Oct. 5, TBS
That pos fiers plays for the As huh. It’s on now.
