Game 5 Was Crazy.

The World Series has been a great one this year and we just keep witnessing better and better games. The Astros beat the Dodgers 13-12 in a 10 inning game that lasted over 5 hours!

Game Summary

Like I said in the title, this game was crazy. In the fourth, the Astros were down 4-0 with less than a 15% chance of winning the game, but they didn’t give up and got to a point where they were up 12-9 with a 97 percent chance win probability.  The Dodgers kept the game going and rallied back to tie the game at 12-12 to send the game to extra innings. Bregman finished extra innings with a walk-off hit to left center as Fisher scored. The Astros won 13-12.

The game finished off with a total of 25 runs, and according to ESPN, the 25 points scored, was the second most of any world series only behind game 4 of the 1993 World Series.

 

My World Series Predictions

The Dodgers are facing the  Astros in this year’s world series and I know it going to be a good one.

The World Series starts on Tuesday night, where you can watch the game on Fox, and before it starts I wanted to make my predictions, and add a few opinions in their.

My Prediction

Dodgers in 6 Games

The Dodgers are rested and ready. They finished the summer with baseballs best record and have gotten the job done this postseason. Also, I’m not so much of a baseball expert, but according to some ESPN experts, they picked the Dodgers to win.

Who I Want To Win

I want the Dodgers to win, not because I’m a Dodgers fan ( I’m a Tigers fan) but because their owner is a Michigan State Alumni (Magic Johnson) who lead MSU to the ’79 NCAAM championship where MSU won.

If I can root for MSU in any way, I always do!

Dusty Baker Won’t Be Back In Washington

The Nationals announced on Friday that Dusty Baker will not be back as a manager in Washington.

The Nationals let Baker go after he lead them to the playoffs in his two years at manager but failed to win a series back to back years.

He finished with a .593 winning percentage going 192-132. His winning percentage was the best by a Washington Manager in Nationals history.

The team wrote in a letter saying  “He is one of the true gentlemen in our sport, and we thank him for the successes that we enjoyed together over the last two years. We wish him nothing but the best going forward.”

Bakers contract was ending at the end of the season along with some of the other coaches on the Nationals roster.

Astros Win The Division For The First Time Since 2001

For the first time since 2001, the Astros are division champs. The Astros clinched the division when they beat the mariners on Sunday. The Astros have only gone to the playoffs three times since 2001 and were wild cards each time, but now they are division champs, they wont have to play as a wild card team… Nobody wants to be a wild card team.

The Astros are one of eight teams to not have a world series win and this year they will be going at it with a new player, Justin Verlander. Can Justin bring a title to Houston?

Is K-Rod Done With The Tigers?

After having multiple situations where  Rodriguez has failed to finish the game for the Tigers, he might be done with them.  Rodriguez has allowed runs in eight of his 13 appearances and has a 8.49 era…. But why?   He’s done it for the last 10 years, is he just getting old? I think the Tigers have the talent to make the playoffs but with one player not putting in the effort, I think its time for him to go.

Rodriguez said in an interview: “I have to find a way to put it behind me. Like I said, I’m more embarrassed than anything else. This is not what the city of Detroit expects from me.” Hes right, as a tigers fan, I definitely expect more from him, its not that I dont like him, I just think he could do a little better. Let me know what you think in the comments about K-Rod.

From College Football To The MLB-Tim Tebows Journey

Tim Tebow went from the Heisman Trophy winner to spring training with the Mets, in a crazy journey. His fame started off with him playing for the Florida Gators when he won two championships and winning the Heisman Trophy. The next chapter he was with the Denver Broncos in the NFL as the starting QB, leading them to the playoffs. When Peyton Manning came to the Broncos, Tim was traded to the Jets, where he struggled, and his career was coming to an end.

After Tebows short NFL , he decided to go into sports broadcasting. After a few years of broadcasting, Tim decided to go into minor league baseball, where people did not take him very seriously. Tebow kept working on baseball and got to the point where he got signed to a deal with the Mets. So, where will his career go next?
