It all starts Tuesday in Fenway Park.

Before the action gets underway...

Rain and cold weather at Fenway Park today have given way to supposedly decent playing conditions. First pitch about to be thrown!

Well, I think we can agree that wasn't an ideal Game 1. Things I liked were the Dodgers chipping away in their at-bats, driving Chris Sale's pitch count up, Pedro Baez's solid relief performance, and playing some "small ball." Things I didn't like were, obviously, Clayton's start and Madera's poor relief pitching.

Gotta get the road split tonight.

A lot of people are talking about the outfielders positioning. Saying Joc and Yasiel are playing too deep for the ballpark dimensions. So the defense not being used to it has caused some problems out there that the Red Sox took advantage of.

That, too.

BTW, anyone notice what the forecast is for Friday in L.A.? 85 and sunny.

Hey Sunnyblue! On a last minute offer, it looks like I'll be seeing you at the Ravine tonight! Very Happy

Only barely! I'm just worried about escaping tonight with a win. The over managing is bonkers.

Cringe-worthy sub-head from today's L.A. Times:

One day after winning the longest game in World Series history, the Dodgers suffered a dramatic Saturday night collapse that may lead to the longest winter in baseball history.

I have not yet posted on this because I had a very busy trip this weekend with an event in Vegas. A lot of hard work but a lot of fun, too. Anyway as usual the place was crawling with Dodger fans.

I wonder what will be Doc's future with the Dodgers. Sorry about your loss, Linda (and Sunny too). I think the Red Sox just lived up to their reputation all year long as the best team in baseball. But we will never know if taking Rich Hill out of the game in Game 4 was the deal breaker. We can always assume it but there might be things behind the decision fans do not know about. \

Now, we are all back on the same page for next spring, but until then we all say "Wait till next year!"

Well I'm back. It was not an easy week and took me a few days to get over that what with being grouchy for a few days with everyone I came into contact with. Those Bums are gonna make us "wait till next year." Again!

Oh did everyone get their free taco?

Oh, and one week later, I'm still experiencing a hangover in its last throes.

Sunnyblue mentioned in another thread a column that appeared in the Daily News this weekend--"World Series Loss Goes Way Beyond the Numbers".

Now...it doesn't really tell us anything we didn't already know before, and have discussed here, before.

But it underscores, for one, why the Dodgers should let Manny walk. Still, I don't see a lot of Dodgers falling into the category of those who "don't care" or "lack heart." In fact, I've liked the chemistry that has gelled over the last few seasons, even mixing in youngsters without all the experience of the veterans they're playing with. To the FO's credit, they do look beyond the numbers in many circumstances--such as leadership (why the hell do you think they kept Chase so long!) and whether a potential Dodger would fit in well with the group.

Dennis McCarthy makes some valid points, but he also has to take into account that no matter how the Brooklyn Dodgers played, today's brand of baseball is a different one overall, and the MLBPA is (in my opinion) too powerful for the overall good of the sport. What we have in today's player is a different animal altogether than those in the '50s and '60s. And sadly, it's not going back.
