    The Rangers look like they're on a different level than the Diamondbacks.

    That kind of how the Diamondbacks looked in Game 2.

    My Uncle just posted pictures of his grandson and some of his former high school ballplayers in the bleachers behind center field on Facebook.

    That was a wild ride. The Diamondbacks (barely) got more hits, and drew more walks, and still wound up eating dirt 11 to 7.

    As they say, it's not just a matter of getting a lot of hits in nine innings, it's a matter of getting a lot of hits close together in nine innings.

    It's too bad they don't have four REAL starters. Having only three real starters is not gonna cut it.

    The Padres might be literally broke. Per The Athletic, they took out a $50 million loan in September to cover expenses and payroll. (They actually asked MLB for permission to take out $100 million, but the league only allowed them to borrow up to $50 million because they were worried about the Padres being unable to comply with the league's debt servicing rules.)

    Yikes.

    Congrats to the Texas Rangers and Bruce Bochy. It wasn't the best world series, but I had a fun time watching it.

    Sometimes being traded a lot feels bad, other times.....it works out fine.

    Nelson Cruz retires. He will play in the Dominican Professional Baseball League this winter as a farewell tour.

    Shouldn't the 2023 WS at least be up for preorder on Amazon by now?

    Usually the WS BluRays are available for preorder in mid October (before anyone even knows who'll be IN it).
