and just like that the Rays are up 2 games to none...but I give the Astros credit, they are actually outhitting the Rays 19-10 and every game has been close plus they are doing it without Justin Verlander...I don't think they can count on him going forward at his age coming back from Tommy John surgery

just like the Patriots they didn't need to cheat to win but did it because they thought they could get away with it

Morgan took the place of Tommy Helms who also had a strange batting preparation style (he made big circles with his bat prior to the pitch). I lived in Cincinnati from 1968 -- 1970 as a pre-teen and loved baseball and the Reds. Went to Crowsley Field and Riverfront Stadium when it opened although only one time each.

are Dodgers fans starting to panic?...Braves got a decent pitching staff so LA's bats better come alive...

Dodgers scratch Clayton Kershaw from Game 2 start

Clayton Kershaw has been scratched from his Game 2 start in the National League Championship Series because of back spasms...Tony Gonsolin, a rookie, will start in Kershaw's place

How the Rays are winning big without spending big money

The Tampa Bay Rays are among the smallest of small-market clubs, yet they are on the verge of earning just their second trip to the World Series...they have long embraced their formula, mostly because they can't cover many flaws with a checkbook...yes, analytics play a significant role in the Rays' success, something you see by their high number of defensive shifts around the diamond and their popularizing the frequent use of the opener on the pitching mound

But their success is also built on by what happens when the players are all together, which is pretty much every day for hours at a time. "When we acquire a player, as much work that goes into what he can do on the field, there's that much on the personality and character," manager Kevin Cash said...

I wonder how many pitchers the Braves are going to burn through in this game? Lots I hope! 😁
Braves should just use up their bottom line pitchers since the game is out of reach...

let's see if Kershaw can actually pitch tomorrow and how effective he is...

Historical low ratings for league championship series. Only 3-4 million viewers. I assume this will go up the longer the series goes.Dodgers will still win I believe,just to much talent.

Certainly not enough to shut me up. I wasn't raised to be a fool.

Miracle? Try travesty. They shouldn't have even been allowed to compete in the playoffs. One can only hope they get slapped down tomorrow. Then they can crawl back into their trash cans where they belong.

they are proving that they don't need the trash can signals to win a championship...they used that to gain an unfair advantage but it wasn't the sole reason for their success...win or lose Game 7 they have redeemed themselves

Assuming they aren't using some other form of cheating to gain an advantage. Wouldn't put it past them.
