In case you just woke up from a coma, a handy graphic to keep track of the world’s most amazing sport, baseball.
NL Los Angels Dodgers: Tommy Lasorda, Dodger Blue, no one likes you, please lose in an embarrassing way to the Brewers. Dave Roberts does manage them and his stealing of second base in 2004 is a very sweet memory. Don’t tarnish that with this sickening baby blue team.
NL Milwaukee Brewers: They have never ever won an NL pennant and so have never even played in the World Series. Yelich is amazing and adorable in closeup shots. Front row Amy, same description but might be more serious. She inks in every pitch of every game. Never even takes a bathroom break. More reliable than Price.
AL Houston Astros: Won it all last year on the back of Altuve. Completely annoying. Please lose to the Red Sox in dramatic fashion.
AL Boston Red Sox: Three World Series Championships in this century. No one else comes close. Are four too many? No way.
If it so happens that Brewers and Red Sox are in the World Series the nation and the world will be rooting for the underdog.
I’m hoping the Sox give Yelich and Amy a big case of the sads by Halloween.
ps. The only thing that would have made it all perfect is Frank from Gloucester calling into the radio station today to chat about how Sabathia got screwed by the ump (He was terrible.) I can hear his voice in my head right now. R.I.P. Frank. We miss you.
