9/30 @3:10 Detroit Tigers vs Milwaukee Brewers

Recommended Posts

10-0 Brewers in the 7th. I like how the Tigers are showing fight right until the end, not an easy out.

Grandy makes an appearance and drops a hit in.

Buckle up for the breaking of the Brewer's hearts with the stunning 12 run rally......leading us to a Shane Green blown save.

So the AL had three 100-win+ teams and three 100-loss+ teams.  7 of 15 AL teams won 89 or more games, the other 8 teams were under .500. Many seasons Seattle's 89 wins would have been enough to grab a wildcard, this year it was 8 games behind the 2nd wildcard and wouldn't even have been a 3rd wildcard.

Only time in history 5 AL teams lose 95 or more games. Four teams with even 90 losses doesn’t happen that often. Suppose we’ll see more seasons going forward with such extreme gaps between the best and worst.

I’m rooting for the Milwaukee Brewers to go the whole way.  I used to feel a sense of identity with the American League,  now I pretty much despise just about every team other than the Tigers.  The Brewers have never really won much of anything so they’re my team.  

When I was in Yellowstone last summer, I met a kid who is a mechanic at a gas station who was repairing my car, and on his day off he came in wearing a Brewers jersey and cap and he was an honest to God baseball fan.  A field of dreams guy. Steeped in the game. Knowledable, passionate.  If we can’t have it I want him to know the ultimate happiness this game can provide.  998973FD-6D6D-42F8-B2D8-3EB3CEADEF76.thumb.jpeg.2d89c6dd601641b7ea47e00df7040b87.jpeg

Noice ride there, Bert

We almost died. Within a half hour the brakes were ground to dust as we descended, and the alternator fried, along with various other aspects of the electrical system. It took six days for all the various parts to arrive from points far and wide.  We were marooned in a repair shop in Yellowstone and slept in the van at night and hitchhiked through the park during the day, and instead of having the vacation of which we dreamed, had an adventure where the kindness of strangers prevailed.  It was magical in unpredictable ways.
