  1. Do we think that’s anymore likely to happen than, say, outbidding everyone for Semien or Byrant? Also, sustained success implies a consistent run of playoff appearances. It’s a whole other issue of whether we fall flat every year in the 1st round or move forward. Honestly, I can’t even look forward that far when we just made the playoffs, in two straight seasons, for the first time in franchise history. We likely have the roster to make the playoffs again, which I’ appreciative for; but I’m worried whether they’re aiming to just win the division….and hope it’s their lucky year….or construct a team to defeat Houston and win a World Series. I think this season (and short postseason) has given us a clear picture of the improvements which need to done for the next step.
  2. The Astros have made five straight ALCS championships; three of which have led to WS appearances. It’s not random anymore, guys. When we suggest to improve the ballclub to compete with Houston, it’s not just a reactionary response to losing. They have to be counted on as being there, in the playoffs, every season until proven otherwise. All roads to the WS go through Houston.

    Ozzie says intent doesn’t matter with Abreu beanings

    I remember Ozzie never retaliating against Tori Hunter after he basically destroyed Jamie Burke at the plate on the collision! We were furious on Soxtalk. Now he’s all about protecting family…. Granted that’s a long time ago, but Ive never forgotten that.
  4. The value of Kimbrel, alone or packaged, isn’t worth the risk of being stuck with his ‘22 salary. The added payroll flexibility will of more use to the team, compared to whoever we bring over in some bad contract swap.

    Tepera said out loud what everybody is thinking

    I’d rather they pitch McCullers against us at home.

    That was the timeline shift. Once Anderson hit the ball and it deflected you just expected some crazy play and then……nothing

    Watching their at bats the entire season, how did they ever lose a game all year? Im jealous of Their plate discipline and pitch recognition.

    Wow I’d never expect that from Garcia, I’ll give him that. The problem here is we still have five innings to go….

    Every mistake we’ve made has been exploited, so I’m sure the ball will finds its way to him at an important point in the game

    It’ll be interesting to see how much of a leash Cease will have. How many runs, and how quickly, is too many? Even if it’s only the first inning, you have to yank him if he’s giving up more than two runs. Every pitcher should be available aside from Gio and Rodan. Worry about Game 4 when it’s that time.
