Chalk it up!

Yeah. Exciting though. The fans were rowdy for the first four and a half hours, and then got tuckered out until the ending.

I was very happy to see Osuna lit up last night. Too bad it was against the Bosox though.

It's going to be tough for them in the Swillwaukee cold. But the entire nation and the league will be rooting for them.

Yes, big game.

The game last night was kind of electric from the Brewers point of view. Their fans were really into it, and they had the game under control pretty much the whole way. It kind of gave them the momentum in the series, it seems.

They also booed the shit out of Machado, and he did nothing (0-4 with two strike outs). They will no doubt be back at it tonight, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Machado hit a home run tonight.

Bool-Yah! Yasiel Puig just hit a 3-banger in the 6th. Buh-Bye, Cheeseheads.

I'm glad I got home in time for that.

I'm really gonna miss that hot chick with the huge knockers in the low cut top and amazing cleavage that was sitting behind home plate next to the due with the Miami Marlins shirt at the Brewers games.

I noticed those two as well, although I think all the chick had going for her were her tits. I wouldn't really call her hot.

We should hear a lot about "The Green Monster" in left field (87 feet high) when the Dodgers come to the plate at Fenway Park against Boston in the World Series, starting on Tuesday night.
Go Dodger Blue !

Manny Machado signed with the San Diego Padres for 10 years and $300 million.

That may be eclipsed soon by Bryce Harper. The Phillies seem to be the favorite to get him at the moment.

I'm not the least bit excited by baseball this year. So depressing.

Amazing that it took that long for one of the biggest stars in the game to get signed. Baseball is broken.

Actually, it might.

The Phillies did pretty well this off-season, adding to a team that showed a lot of improvement last year.

Now, as far as long-term goes, you may be right.

A lot of people were 50/50 on who was better between Machado and Harper. But I see Machado as being much better over the long haul, especially now that he's gone back to 3rd base.

Harper seems less consistent and might even drop off a cliff in 5 years, becoming very average with only occasional flashes of his old self.

This s not a 10 year or13 year deal with a 31 year old post prime years.

The Phillies has added quality players to their roster. They ned better starting pitching
