Game 7 of the World Series was kind of a dud but it didn't mean it wasn't a great October. I watched the end of the game with my sons and gave my thoughts as we said good bye to another year. The offseason begins on this Episode of Sully Baseball.
Before Game 6 of the World Series, I visited my kid's little league field and realized that this was the greatest Astros team of all time. During Game 6 of the World Series, I went Trick or Treating. After Game 6 of the World Series, I barked with dogs.
Game 5 of the 2017 World Series was absolutely bonkers. It was a chain reaction of dramatic moments that happened last night and banal events from a few nights before that all added up to be the sum total that was the game. I give Clayton Kershaw a break, criticize the Dodgers and hope that the series goes 7 to become an all time classic.
Brad Peacock helped show that the Astros are using their bullpen the way it should be used: Use the best pitchers for the best situation to win a game. I hope the Series goes 6 or 7 to become a classic. Meanwhile my son's give their World Series thoughts and tie it to Jurassic Park.
Game 2 of the 2017 World Series was nothing short of crazy. The Astros and Dodgers need to take a good hard look at how they use their pitchers. Meanwhile the Yankees ended the Joe Girardi Era. I do not know why but I have some thoughts of where his career should head.
The World Series has begun down the street and let me tell you, there is nothing quite like a local team in the fall classic (even if it is over 100 degrees outside.) Meanwhile it is the 5th anniversary of the podcast, but my celebration this year is a little more muted. Being thankful of the hometown team in it and my friends in podcast land this Episode of Sully Baseball.
The Astros chucked away the tyranny of the save and won a pennant along the way. It was the greatest moment in Astros history. The World Series is set up and the Dodgers and Astros have tons of feel good storylines on both sides. Meanwhile, Dusty Baker was fired and I give him credit where it is due.
The regular season ends today. Brewers fans got some heart break last night but hope for the future. Red Sox fans should be elated. Angels fans should be angry. And I for one am hoping that the World Series is played in the freezing cold of Denver and Minneapolis. Saying good bye to the friend that is the regular season on this Episode of Sully Baseball.
The Nationals are back in the post season and have their hopes higher than another Division Series flop. Ron Juckett, Nats fan and writer for District On Deck, joins the podcast to talk about expectations in the nation's capital.
Bad things happen to teams when Adrian Gonzalez is on the active roster. Not saying he is the cause. Just making an observation. Meanwhile Ken Gura ( @kengura463inCLE on Twitter ) has some thoughts on media bias that facts might not back up.
