MLB Playoffs 2021

I’m as cynical as the rest of you horsefeathers, but let’s start this thread. The atmosphere at Fenway for this game must be nuts. This is going to be fun,

Bogaerts absolutely obliterated that high FB from Cole.

No rooting interest tonight, but it would be cool if Rizzo or Schwarber did something.

On that topic, not that this is a surprise really, but they are both batting leadoff, and it's the first time two players who were teammates the year before are opposing each other as leadoff hitters on different teams in a playoff game.

I love that they're doing a Statcast broadcast for this.
Honestly I think more events should have more alternate broadcasts. Alternate languages (and not just radio over the English broadcast, but like full productions), Nickelodeon broadcasts, do it all.

Schwarbs with a big, fat DONG!!

Gerrit Cole does not like "Playoffs Schwarber".

G'dammit Cole, but also yay Schwarber

Is it wrong that I want a Brewers/White Sox series? Make it hurt, postseason!

Schwarber hitting a no doubt bomb to right off Gerrit Cole to put his team up 3-0 in the third inning of the wild card game. A tradition unlike any other.

Rizzo and Schwarber both homering in the first game all but confirms that these players will play out in the most painful way possible. Something like Lester pitching a CG shutout in game 7 of the World Series with Kimbrel giving up the game losing HR

If this score holds, that might be the story of the game. Took the Yankees right out of the inning.

The look on the 3B coach’s face after the fact is front and center in my head right now, soooooo fired

The Fenway fans chanting Bobby freaking Dalbec’s name at the plate above anyone else is the most Boston sports fan thing ever.

hard to think of a better way to start the playoffs than the yankees and cardinals getting immediately eliminated. hopefully that’s how it pans out.

If the Cardnials and their devil magic knock off a 106 win Dodger team, this will be the end of the current playoff format as we know it. It might be anyway after the CBA.

I have future bets on the Astros 25-1 to win the WS and Braves 14-1 so hopefully one of them wins. Otherwise, Tampa would be fine.

I hate to say it but the Cards straight up is a solid bet right now.
