    I am looking forward to the Brewers/Dodgers game here in about an hour. I’ll have my tuna salad sandwich, chili, and a piece of banana cream pie from the amish restaurant around first pitch. Then a cigar or two. Plus my old sidekick Whitey Herdog will be on the couch with me. After she gets her late night snack of Cesar’s beef, of course!

    And I am calling this one 5-2 Brew Crew.

    This one is what we call an old fashioned barnburner here in Indiana. Its a reference to close high school basketball games here in the Hoosier state.

    They better get some more runs. A two run lead with three innings left in San Diego isnt exactly safe. This one would be a tough loss if they cant hold on.

    Braves take Game One against Cincinnati. 1-0 in 13 innings. Freeman with the rbi single to center off of Amir Garrett.

    I will be watching the Cincinnati/Atlanta game. Then upon completion I will be heading down to the Gasthof, the amish restaurant, for my late lunch. Chicken, meatloaf, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, noodles, sweet potatoes, dressing, and probably a big bowl of chocolate ice cream for dessert. Yum yum.

    Then I will return home and watch the Cards/Padres with my old buddy Whitey Herdog on the couch with me. I’ll probably have a cigar or two during this one. Then late tonight watch the Brewers/Dodgers out west. And once again my old buddy Whitey Herdog will be on the couch with me and I’ll probably have a couple of cigars during this one.

    Anxious to see how Pugs calls this one. Its my understanding the ball carries a little better at Petco Park during the day so who knows, maybe it will become a slugfest. Sort of like the Trump/Biden debate last night.

    What I would find teetotally amusing would be if the $33,000,000 player would completely flop in these 2-3 games.

    It was Rob Drake that made bad calls in the final game of the year for the Giants. His low strike calls – so low they should have been balls – could possibly have hurt the Giants chances. SF wasnt too thrilled with him.

    Fortunately for us he wont be behind the plate in any of the San Diego games.

    I posted this in another thread. Marcell Ozuna hit .338 with 18 homeruns and 56 rbi’s.

    In a full season that equates to 45-50 homeruns and around 140 rbi’s.

    How did this happen?????

    Question…….is it for certain that the winner of the Brewers/Dodgers series will play the winner of the Cards/Padres series?

    Or if the Dodgers win that series will they play the worst remaining seed? In other words, if #7 Cincinnati beats #2 Atlanta would the Dodgers then play the Reds?

    Plus their manager is un-tested. I dont even know his name. We might have an advantage there.

    I am anxious to see which way Pugs calls this one. I am going to do my best to tune in to these games on Wednesday and Thursday.

    By the way, I dont suppose FSMW is carrying these games, right?

    Not really any late game on Tuesday night perhaps because of the presidential debate?

    Somebody explain to me again why we arent going to Detroit? If the Cards would lose both in Detroit the Reds would have had a better record. And, therefore, different seedings.

    What am I missing?

    Pederson is terrible against lefties. 36 homeruns last year and all 36 against righties. Are we sure we would be interested in him???

    So, if the Cardinals win this one then they are in the playoffs – correct?

    So, what are the scenarios here?

    1) If we win this one – what?

    2) If we lose this one – what?

    For lunch today I had a ribeye steak in the air fryer, some Italian green beans, some sliced potatoes cooked in beef gravy, a piece of cherry pie, and one of those Klondike bars. yum yum

    My late din din tonight will be a microwaved bar-b-q rib sandwich and a piece of white layer cake. yum yum

    And I am going to call this one 6-2 Brewers tonight. I’ll be watching my last late game of the year tonight from the west coast, the A’s visiting the Dodgers.

    Should the Cubs and the Cards meet in these playoffs would you like to make a wager on the outcome?

    I dont care what those stats tell me. Its like somebody telling me that Tyler Greene had a 2.35 HWIF and a 1.06 FBIP and a ZPS of 723 so he’s a great player. He wasnt worth a hoot.

    As long as we dont play the Cubs. I dont want to lose in the playoffs to the Cubs – AGAIN!

    Anybody but the Cubs. They’d be so fired up to beat us in the playoffs it would be a lock.
