    Hard not to, that's for sure. It's not like he's a bad guy or anything.

    Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    Uh...he's a dodger! Easy to root against the guy.

    I hope the Nats make the World Series.

    The World series is the Astros v. the Yanks, IMHO.

    Stunned so far at the results. Can't believe they put up 12 last night. Next 3 in DC.

    Boy, was I wrong about that. After they booed Trump, the Nats were destined to win.

    And as LA Ute noted, Verlander out-Keryshawed Kershaw. What a horrible post season for him.

    I never would have guessed the Astro's would lose 3 games started by Cole and Verlander, and a fourth started by Greinke. Nats really stepped up.

    I can't believe they pulled Grienke. He was absolutely dominant and, IMO, they pulled him too early. I guess the Astros are a big analytics team and the analytics said pull him, but from a game feel perspective, it didn't seem to me like one homer/walk meant that he was losing it.

    I thought the same thing. He hadn't thrown that many pitches-- 80? How many outs were there when the pulled him? 1?
