    I'm hoping Arizona, but their pitching is a mess

    for a rivalry, each team has to have fans. dbacks have very few true fans

    I may be the one person who doesn’t mind the dark grey unis for Arizona.

    Greinke not getting out of the fourth inning did a lot of bad to the D-Backs,

    It did, but that's sort of the appropriate disadvantage of being in the WC game, I guess.

    Yeah, I think Ray definitely would have started this game, he was awesome against LA this year.

    I can never get used to Kershaw’s delivery.

    And a meatball pitch.

    Edit: actually the pitch wasn’t bad.

    I've always been amazed that it's as repeatable as it must be.

    I can’t believe Jeff Mathis is still in the MLB. I never thought he was a good catcher when he came up with the Angels so it’s amazing to see him in a playoff game now.

    Long way to go but the Dodgers are looking pretty dominant.

    The best is the enemy of “good enough.” I guess they think he’s been good enough. :confused:

    Kershaw allows 4 solo HR's out of 5 hits allowed in 6.1 IP.

    This is a series that is far from over with Robbie Ray and Greinke going in games 2 and 3 for ARI. Ray's three starts in LA this season were all dominant:

    6 3 2 1 4 10
    6 5 1 1 4 13
    7.2 3 0 0 0 14 (Sept. 4)

    First year since 1900 that neither Connie Mack was managing nor Vin Scully was announcing.

    Find someone who was old in 1900 but still in baseball and you can take this to the beginning of the game in 3 steps.

    Mack's first job as a major league manager came late in the 1894 National League season, but he was managing the minor league Milwaukee Brewers from 1897-1900. Harry Wright, manager of the 1869 Cincinnati Red Stockings, was let go by the Philadelphia Phillies after the 1893 season, so Mack missed managing against him by less than a year. The National League did create a token job of "Chief of Umpires" for Wright for the 1894-95 seasons (he died in October 1895), so he was technically still in the game... not to mention, as a player, Mack played against Wright-managed teams for several years.

    Another way to look at it is that in Mack's rookie year as a player (1886), he was a teammate of 43-year-old Joe Start, who began his career in baseball's amateur era, and led the National Association in games played in its inaugural 1871 season. Later on he was a teammate of Deacon White, who also played in the 1871 NA season. The problem with all of this is you'd have to ignore the 1897-1900 seasons that Mack spent managing in the minors.

    Hill has a ridiculous reverse split this year:

    Well, guess it doesn't matter.

    Have the Red Sox even hit the outfield wall on the fly versus Houston? Some of these home runs are just crushed.

    That reverse split is crazy. I would love to hear someone explain that, because he surely didn't have one last year. Or in 2007
