We have a ways to go still on our end.

What's the rule for who bats last in the ALDS? Normal schedule, TB is the home team in games 1, 2 and 5?
Yep. It is 2-2-1 in the division series and then it will be the traditional 2-3-2 in the seven game series.

Harrisburg, Pa.
I will be pissed of St Louis beats San Diego.

I guess I might as well prepare cause it’s happening.

This has the 2020 Petco HR factor just ahead of Coors, 8th in MLB.

I don't know where ESPN came up with those numbers. Looks like some sort of aberration in their 2020 stats. Maybe it's the Tatis effect. Petco is HR suppressing.

Do you know if that is coming into this season or including this season? Because it seems to change a lot sometimes year to year these days as teams tweak their parks.

Suter's 3rd walk in the 1st inning, walks in Betts.

He walked 5 all year (31 IP)

I think it includes the 2020 season. If you flip back, it’s lower in previous seasons in the ESPN numbers. Maybe because they avoided the heaviest marine layer months this year? Who knows.

Some of the newer statcast-based park factors actually seem to put Petco slightly above average on HR friendliness. So maybe your boys will be OK.

The Milwaukee Cub Scouts have cut it to 3-2 in the 6th, tying run on second with 2 out. And Cleveland rallied to tie the Yankees 8-8, now in the the 8th.
