Figured we could dump world series comments here.

My first is that in 2017 Chris Taylor hit 261 with 1 HR while facing a groundball pitcher. (133 PA vs GB P)

So of course he leads off W.S. with a HR

CC4s 1st inning home run came to mind, but when I looked it up he was the second batter to face Mussina. TW5 struck out swinging on a dropped 3rd strike to lead it off.

Astros need to change their approach 3rd time through or Kershaw wins. Simple as that.

Really nothing they could with Cuzzi giving that low strike. Try to work the count and you start off every at bat 0-1, 0-2.

they had to be aggressive and Kershaw just didn't make any mistakes early in counts, except one pitch to Bregman.

Hat tip.

FWIW, I am convinced that Cuzzi told the managers before the game, "It's 103 degrees, we ain't playing no 4 hour game, tell your boys to come out swinging".

Keuchel is good too, but that definitely would favor Kershaw I would think. He pitched a great game too. Two mistakes to kershaw's one, and the walk of course, difference in the game.

Good game.

Fucking Wookies....I hate them.

well....maybe last nights zone not quite as big as I thought. I count 7 pitches that were balls called strikes, and at least 3-4 strikes that were called balls

The walks Chris Taylor keeps getting have been really good tough AB’s

Home run derby seems to have broken out in the 10th.

It is weird knowing the Astros have been around 48 years and this is their first WS win.

The Expos/Nationals still don't have a World Series win and they've been around 48 years (the Astros/Colt 45s have actually been around 55 years).

It's depressing that I'm old enough to have lived through both expansions :)

And that is why you wait until the final out to post something, kids.

And THAT'S why baseball is the best sport--and it isn't even close.

With the juiced baseballs and what that wildfire must be doing to the air in LA, that stadium is turning into Coors.

No SQL errors for me, but what a boring game last night. You'd think these 2 teams could provide some entertainment. I hope it picks up in game 3.
