Cubs staying alive; it wasn't pretty but they were scrappy.

There was, to my knowledge, no pole dancing during the 7th inning stretch.

Sorry there Badger.... Looks like it's about done for even though it's only the 4th inning.

An amazingly hard road to pull off back-to-back appearances never mind victories

I wish I could copy in the NFL here, but I haven't watched an MLB game since the strike 20-some years ago. I wanted to watch Vin Scully's last game but couldn't bring myself to do so.

Ahh, the Dodgers had it all going right, from research to execution. The better team won (convincingly) and that's all there is about it. I will now commence to pull some PM on the bass rigs, commence late-afternoon deer scouting, and subliminally hope the Astros can bring their hopes to fruition, although too busy to be watching whatever that ends up for the WS.

Will be interesting to watch over the winter what the Cubs do with their pitching staff, as they have some free-agents, and a long-in-tooth former starter to consider.

I don't know what you are talking about. I didn't watch this game either. I got my life back.

The dance card is set... Thank you Houston for seeing the Yankees to the door.

I'm sure MLB isn't all that happy with the matchup as they lost a majority of the potential viewers East of the Mississippi.

You could refer to this as the "Elemental" series.

Amen.With some much discussed pop in the bats, Astros also showed snappy defense. We'll see if their pitchers can execute that other piece of the game - the one where they have to stand in the batter's box.

I remember not long after they moved to LA and were still playing in the old Coliseum* (before Walter O'Malley got Chavez Ravine built). Didn't know anything about them but caught a ball from some Cubs player - so the die was cast at least for that 8-year old (kids large & small... ALWAYS take your glove with you).

Later my Dad took me back to the new Dodger Stadium. You could hardly find a drinking fountain & Dad opined that was so Walter O'Malley could force you to drink his over-priced beer. Impressions stick at that age. While I wish the Astros were still in the league that plays real baseball, if I had to wish a team well it would be them. Because... well, Dodgers.

One thing in the Wrigley playoffs that did make me chuckle was a sign a fan held up outside as the Dodgers players' bus arrived, something along the lines of: "29 years is a long time without a World Series."


* A football stadium; badly re-arranged temporarily for baseball. Until they put a false barrier up in left field, a golfer could hit a home run with a soft pitching wedge.
