The Red Sox have their playoff beards working and the Cardinals have a 3-1 lead in the NLCS again.
While the Tigers and Dodgers are wondering if this year just isn’t meant to be.
I can’t recall a time when the ALCS and NLCS were this tight… and it’s probably because I have a bad memory.
Ask me what Babe Ruth’s batting average was in 1923 and I can tell you, it was .393, but remembering other events… not so much.
Yes, St. Louis has a commanding 3-1 series lead on L-A, but every game has been super close.
In fact, last night’s Game 4 was the first time either team had hit a home run.
Over in the Motor City, the Bo-Sox squeaked out a 1-0 win last night to take a 2-1 lead in the ALCS.
Every game in this series has been decided by 1 run, and I don’t expect that to change in Game 4 tonight and beyond.
In total, the 7 LCS games have been decided by 10 runs.
The best pitchers always raise their game in the post season, but this year, the hurlers are off the charts.
I, like the next baseball fan loves the long ball and offence.
But the anticipation of each run has been a lot of fun to watch.
