Talking back to carry my weight around? Probably.
What? Uh, what What is good? What up? Everybody appreciates all jumping in here to get us started this morning.
I know we got a college football day for you guys, but there are also some very big baseball games going on the last couple of days, week or so and still got some big major games coming up.
So, you know, I want to jump in real quick.
Just recap a little bit about, um, you know what's been going on? Obviously.
You know, some of my predictions were not correct.
Sadly, losing one of my teams will talk about it.
Um and, uh, yeah, I just want to talk to you guys a little bit about what I think is gonna be coming up What has been happening.
And, um, what's going on with baseball? So without further ado, Cheers to me.
Cheers to you all the wrong boys and girls want to do.
Let's get into it, y'all Let's get into it.
So we're gonna go all the way back to the beginning. Here.
We're going back to the wild card again.
I'm just gonna go over these first couple games pretty quick.
You guys already know what's been going on? So, wild card for the A l Obviously, it was the athletics against the race.
Athletics just did not have the pitching set up in that game.
Did not really go super Well, for those guys off the bat, they actually went down 5 to 1 to the Rays.
Obviously, we know Tampa Bay is one of the better bullpens in baseball and especially in these playoffs.
And that is essentially what got them through quick and early lead and just let the bull can do their job.
Hold it down, do what they gotta do in regards to the NL.
We saw the Nationals take on the Brewers.
Both these teams, as you guys know where teams that were hot.
The Brewers, one of the best records to end the season, the Nationals just hanging on the entire end of the year had that good record did what they had to do.
We did see the Nationals end up overcoming the Brewers in very, very intense fashion.
I mean, Soto, at the end of that game.
If you guys remember what they clutch base hit brings in the runs, gets the lead bullpen, hold it down.
In the eighth and ninth inning, I saw the Nationals go ahead and get that W I'm 4 to 3.
So those were your national cards.
Obviously, those guys moved on and will now get into, you know, some of the bigger games, some of the better games, so we'll go back to jail again.
So the Astros and Rays have been playing a lot of people.
Thought this would be easy, you know, walk off for the Astros raising.
Gonna have the bullpen but didn't really have the firepower of the asteroids are just an all around fantastic team.
You know, their pitching staff is one of the best in baseball.
Um, we know they have some of the best hitters.
Altuve a Bregman, Korea.
I mean, it doesn't stop there.
Brantley has been probably the best free agent signing so far.
What's coming to the end of the season? As of last year's free agency, so big Siri's Astros did go up two games to none, it looked all but over pretty much for Tampa Bay Astros won six to first game, 31 The next game.
Dominant pitching performances by multiple guys.
I mean, Gerrit Cole has been off the charts.
Verlander, just as good Game three comes around the race, came to play the race.
We're not going home quietly.
They win that thing 10 to 3.
Come back the next game, win it for the one so tied.
That thing up became a very intense Siri's, and it came down to Game five, which, as you guys know, at least in the first round, it is just a five game series in the division series.
So obviously, most people were looking at the Astros to win that game.
It would have been unreal to see the Astros go down.
They did what they had to do.
Um, and and again, Cole was just unhittable.
Astros win that 16 to 1 great series.
Oh, Tampa Bay did a lot to prove to themselves that they belong here and it wasn't just a fluke that they were here.
I can see Tampa Bay being back the next couple of years and being a problem in regards to our other Ale division series.
It was a little bit more lopsided.
This one was Yankees twins.
We know the truth about the firepower breaking records for home runs, but the Yankees were right on their heels.
The Yankees just again have a more dominant in all around team.
They got Chapman in the bullpen.
They have the hitters.
We know they have the hitters great fielding out there and as well as some good pitching, just too much for the Twins.
The Yankees sweep them in dominant fashion 10 to 482 to 5 to 1 in three games.
Not much to say about that. That one.
The Twins. Congrats on being where you were.
A lot of people didn't think you would be there.
You proved everybody wrong, including myself, and you definitely deserve to be there.
Swapping over some NL action.
This was the Siri's of Siri's so far, the Dodgers Nationals sad to talk about this one because I did.
I will have to say it.
Your boy Robbie J.
Congrats to your naps, my dude.
I picked the Dodgers to go to and even win the World Series early on in this hole playoff situation.
Once we got through wild card the Dodgers started out hot went up six.
Nothing in Game one.
It seemed like it was gonna be that type of Siri's game to Nationals.
Come back for two great couple games, very back and forth.
Dodgers nationals, Dodgers Nationals in the Siri's went to Game five again.
Super close game.
Dodgers look ahead like they had it all but wrapped up.
You guys know the story.
I don't need to bring the tears to the Dodgers.
Fanseyes Kershaw comes in, gives up the back to back homers to Soto and Brendan, Brendan first and Soto tie it up.
And, of course, Joe Kelly gives up the Grand Slam to our man Howie Kendricks.
Nationals win game 5723 and go from the wild card.
Having to push themselves into the playoffs, too.
A couple games on the World Series now.
So congrats to those guys.
Great season for the Dodgers.
Obviously, in my opinion, the best team in baseball, if not top three guarantee you can't even argue about that being top three.
Um, obviously, after us, the Yankees or one of those other couple teams, but Dodgers great season Dave Roberts.
I don't see him being on the hot seat.
I know a lot of people are talking about that because of some of his choices he made.
They just re signed him.
They won over 100 and five games.
They're not gonna look to move Dave Roberts yet.
If he happens to do this the next season, possibly we've seen the Dodgers go just continuously to the playoffs and just not be able to get over the hump.
Said to see um, what bro treat up in the building of homeboys, Yes, have to shut off the Nats.
They walked on my Dodgers.
It is what it is, you know.
So get progress to them.
So that's all we got for that one.
Nationals are moving on in regards to our other division series, the Cardinals and braids.
This was a super interesting Siri's because the Cardinals Gamma, one of those super hot teams that came kind of on and nowhere but the great The Braves were fantastic all year.
The breeze that a great record.
They were quietly the second best team in the NL.
Um, so I really wasn't sure who was gonna win this one.
This one was a hard one to pick a little back and forth regardless, What ended up going down.
Cardinals Brains got super close.
A lot of these games are talking about here Also are very clutch situations at the end of games.
Yadier Molina taken it on himself.
Do we have to do to hit balls out of the park and take the W? So 76 cards win Game one.
Braves went back to backs, though in pretty dominant fashion.
30 than 31 Cardinals looked on the ropes there, down to 11 more win for the Braves, and it's over.
Cardinals pull it off in 10 innings, 5 to 4.
Looks like it was gonna be a very intense Game five.
Just at each other's throats.
One of the best games that we were expecting to see, and the Cardinals weren't letting that happen.
The Cardinals smoked the Braves right off the bat.
Let's put it up.
Let's not look back. 13 toe. One.
The Cardinals end up winning Game five and move on in a dominant fashion, as you maybe not would expect, but as is C um, so that is why I went on with the division series.
So, obviously, now, after that, we do have a Final Four, essentially a baseball Yankees Astros for the A L.
Cardinals Nationals for the NL.
Four fantastic teams, four teams that can win it all.
I've already said we'll start with the I have said multiple times.
I think the Yankees Esther's will be the best.
Siri's in the postseason again.
I know we've gone to Game five in both NL games in one of the A L Games are serious.
So Ah, lot of game vibes.
A lot of win or go home for both team type games.
But I do think this is gonna be the best Siri's.
I expect this one to go six or seven.
I do see the Astros winning this, and then these are all predictions at this point here.
No Game seven Dept.
To be played for these teams, but just the way the Astros, where I get that the Yankees just swept through the Twins, I get that the Astros had to go to a Game five against the race.
But I just think if there is a pitching staff to hold that Yankees hitting in contention.
It will be Verlander.
It will be Greinke. It will be Gerrit Cole.
It will be the big dogs for Houston.
On the other side, I can absolutely see how the Yankees could win their bats, wake up at the right time.
If they could manage to get coal or Verlander out by six or seven inning and have 2 to 3 innings to be able to hit against some of the relievers for Houston, they got a chance.
The Yankees always got a chance.
They're great at the end of games and they're good at putting up runs early and just holding it down.
So I think this is gonna be a fantastic series again between six and seven.
I am still gonna pick the Astros, not change my take on that one.
I like the Astros to go ahead and go to the World Series, but again, this will be the syriza watch, in my opinion, for your n l.
This has serious has already started out, So we are through just Game one, but a hell of a performance in Game one.
Anibal Sanchez for the Nationals goes hitless through, like seven and 2/3 innings, maybe even longer.
I mean, Dang, my dude was not given it up.
It did not matter.
Gave up one base hit.
They did take him out.
Obviously, a good move.
Let the do try and get the no hitter.
He doesn't get it.
Let's go to the bullpen. Let's lock it down.
Nationals win Game one to nothing.
Cardinals had nothing on the Nationals pitching again.
I mean, you you get a no hitter going through even five or six innings.
You're in trouble, let alone tapping into seven.
So nationals, dominant fashion.
Go ahead and get the first win.
They did not put up a whole lot of runs, so that did a little concern me a little bit, not giving up any hits on one side, putting up just two runs on the other side.
Regardless, a win is a win.
Nationals doing what they gotta do their up game won.
Saturday's gonna be game to, um, and so on and so forth for this one.
I can't say the Nationals won't get it done.
The nationals are hot hot.
Atlanta sports is cursed.
Oh, it definitely might be doubly might be, but the Nationals are hot, hot, hot, hot right now.
Not only did they win the only game of a series in the wild card between a very, very tough brewer's team in dramatic, dramatic fashion, they went into the Dodgers, who was my team to beat and the best team in my World Series champion.
They beat them and again, not dominant fashion but dramatic fashion.
You go to Game five, you get a night walk up, but pretty much a walk off grand slam in the final 23 innings.
These guys have got to just all be together.
They have got to be feeling themselves.
They have got to just have this clubhouse arm Cloud 12 right now, like they passed Cloud9 awhile ago like they are, they're feeling it.
And that is what baseball is about being hot at the right time, having your team together at the right time and putting things together at the right time.
And right now the Nationals are looking good if shares or could come back and maybe put his performances in the playoffs together a little bit and have a dominant game against the Cardinals.
I could see the Nationals easily taking this one in probably five or six games.
Cardinals are not a team to look over them.
They're absolutely the same.
Like I said, they were hot coming in.
They had one of the better records at the end of the year.
They weren't looking even in the last month and 1/2.
They weren't supposed to be where they were.
Obviously, they pass up.
The Cubs stay ahead of the Brewers and their where they need to be beat.
A brave seem that really was a 50 50 shot in that in that Siri's.
So both the teams are gonna be great World Series wise, obviously.
Now I'm looking at Nationals versus Astros.
Sorry, Robbie J.
Sorry, Nationals fans.
I do think the Astros can pull this one off.
So far, my predictions haven't been to correct here.
With the Dodgers going down, I've been right about pretty much the entire L.
But the Dodgers going down is painful for me, so I'm thinking the Nationals can get it done just based on how hot they are.
Pitching staffs got to be feeling themselves.
Bats are definitely feeling themselves.
Want soda was fired.
Trade Turner's vacants a place Brendan has yet to even come out of his shell his M V P type season show.
So look for that to be awesome.
And I guess we'll leave my prediction for the rest of the World Series for later.
But you guys know that's what it is for right now.
