Baseball Update

October 1, 2021

Though one never knows for sure, the only real drama left in “reg” “whoreball,” involves the reason it is “whoreball,” namely the bogus wild card, that, to be discussed next.

The (105-54) Giants lead defending “bubble” champion, (103-56) L.A. (their projected win total was 103 and a fraction) by 2 games with 3 left to play. In real race ’62, L.A. led by 2 with 3 to play only to end up blowing a 2 run 9th inning lead in a decisive home third game of the unscheduled ‘off, rekindling memories of 1951 when Bobby Thomson’s 3rhr capped an incredible Giants comeback to win the pennant.

In both ’51 and ’62, after glorious rallies/comebacks to win the pennant, the Yankees denied the Giants in the subsequent World Series.

Speaking of the Yankees, they have won 8 of their last 9 games and with a 2 game “qualification” lead over both Boston and still 75:1 to win the A.L. “Sea” and 3 over Toronto, are so likely to make a tournament appearance for the 23rd time in the bogus entity’s 27 years. Add 29 pennants in years of one team from each league and a (4-1) record in ALCS, in years before the tournament and this would/almost certainly will be the Yankees’ incredible 57th post-season appearance.

The 4 Yankees’ “tournament misses” were all under Joe Girardi, who did guide them to their lone crown since 2000, that in ’09. The misses were in ’08, ’13,’14 and ’16.

Last night, both the Atlanta Braves and Houston Astros, opponents in 4 “bastardized/division” series within the N.L., all but one won by Atlanta from ’97-2005, clinched one eighth divisions, the Braves’ title eliminating the Joe Girardi managed Philadelphia Phillies.

The Braves as the N.L. “3” will meet a team from their former city of Milwaukee, namely the “2” seed, Brewers. Meanwhile the Astros, very likely as the A.L. “2” and thus with home advantage in the best of 5 “bastardized/division,” will face their 2005 World Series conqueror’s, the Chicago White Sox.

Tampa Bay, an incredible achieving team with a relatively low payroll and disgracefully little fan support at home, is the A.L. one seed. The SF/LA div winner will be the “1” with the runner up, the N.L. “4” and an 8-10 game date vs the Cards on October 6th. The team from St. Loo has won 18 of 19 games.
