    These play-in games are a little sad. Last night's game obviously featured two excellent teams, and one had to exit... boo. And Milwaukee did in a very unlucky way which made the one-game series seem even dumber.

    Tonight's game also pits two surprising teams against each other. Oakland has Mennaia (sp.) going the guy who no-hit us last season. I like both teams for their spunk and low-budget successes, but one will have to go down tonight. And the winner will have to play Houston... tough.

    I hate the play-in game but going to 8 teams in each league making the playoffs would be worse.

    Another alternative could be having 3 wild card teams with the worst division record team having a play-in, or have two 3 game series with 2 teams getting a 5-6 day buy. Yuck.

    Over the past two seasons the "surprising" Oakland Athletics have won more regular-season games than the Red Sox despite Boston's 108 wins in 2018. Over that period the Tampa Bay Rays have won six fewer regular-season games than the Sox.

    But the World Series flag flies in Boston.

    Because of their minuscule budget, relatively speaking, each year the Rays make the PO's their manager should win manager of the year and their GM should win GM of the year. 60 million dollar payroll; that's unbelievable.

    Amazing stats. These two teams deserve lots of praise.

    That's how I felt when we hired Dan Duquette.

    They have a clean slate at least till Friday night. That little series should be very closely contested, but Yanks have home field advantage. So, you gotta pick em. Till they arrive in Houston.
