For the next international series, can we have the Yankees play the Cardinals in Chernobyl?
Great idea, Gardner and his malformed dome would fit right in.

29 runs in two games scored by the gashouse gorillas.

And what in the name of Christ is an Urshela?

Sounds like something you come down with if you eat bad shellfish.

When Urshela murders you over two games, it's time to give up the ghost.

Thanks for the World Series last year boys, looks like the gashouse gorillas are going to bludgeon their way to a title.

The Raptors, Blues and Gashouse Gorillas all win titles in the same year; stop the sports world, I want to get off.

It's amazing that Dombrowski won a WS in today's game without ever focusing on building a bullpen. The guy never learns.
Isn't the problem that when he does focus on building a bullpen he trades away good players and/or prospects for Tyler Thornburg types?

As much as the Red Sox stunk it up, this Yankee team has an unbelievable lineup and pen. Their lineup should cool off some, but it’s a well-constructed team. I can’t see any AL team (except perhaps the Astros) stopping them from getting the pennant.

I’m for moving Betts and cashing in on prospects, mostly because I don’t think he wants to stay in Boston long term. I don’t think his current stats degrade his value. Perhaps a team like the Rays would be looking.

It’s just baseball. Some years a couple of teams just rise to the top. This year it looks
like the Dodgers, Yankees and Astros. 11 games back at the halfway point is too big a margin. Not even sure this team makes the WC.

Bogaerts not making it is an absolute joke.
The whole change of the selection process was no better than it was before. Take the damn thing aways from the fans. It sucks. The entire All Star stuff is a big marketing joke and waste of time.

Yeh, and so did Boone. What’s your point? He’s a slacker?

Fake edit: Sorry, we’re all in a bad mood today.
Not at all. My point was that there were a lot of non baseball distractions/obligations for both organizations that were attached to this MLB traveling circus. I think the teams were put in a shitty situation. No way to measure the affects any of this may have had on the outcome of either game and clearly neither pitching staff helped matters any, but I'm guessing many of us would feel only slightly better about this series if the Sox walked away with both wins.

Dopes, as requested on the main board (London 2019 thread), this one need be locked also. Enough is enough, turn the page, thanks.
Curious as to why you're calling for these threads to be locked. It's just hours after the series and there are still some here who care to discuss it. If you have no interest in them simply do what most of us do regarding threads that we have no interest in, don't read them.

here's that "pissed Cora" PC to stew on over the offday.

I wouldn’t say he sounded pissed in that video, just told it like it was. Opponent played great, we didn’t. Offense, defense, special teams as BB would say. Maybe Pete Abe heard something else that had him conclude that he was pissed. He should be, and by the way, BB always says “we have to coach better” along with saying the players need to do better. Not sure I’ve heard that from Cora.
