OTM Roundtable: ALCS Predictions

Photo by Elsa/ Who will win? In terms of my own planning, which I know is everyone’s number one concern from the schedule makers to you the readers, it worked out very well for this ALCS to start on a Friday. That allows me to make the easy roundtable question: Who is going to win and in how many games? Scott Neville To be completely honest, I did not expect the Red Sox to still be here. It’s not that I didn’t think it was possible to beat the big bad Rays, but it took everything we had to beat the Nationals earlier this month. At this point, I’m not going to...

10/2/21: Mariners Open Game Thread

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports Life remains! Things could have gone better last night. They could have gone better today, for that matter, with the Blue Jays trouncing the Orioles again and the Red Sox escaping another near-disaster against the Nationals. But fortunately, the Yankees lost yet again to the mighty Rays, meaning Seattle still has life if at least one of Boston or New York lose tomorrow.

Photo by Alika Jenner/ I’ve never been so invested in the Rays/Nationals/Orioles in my life If, like me, you’ve been in Zoom calls all day, counting down the minutes until baseball is on tonight...you’re in luck. We have quite an appetizer for you with THREE games on tap. Game #1: Red Sox (89-70) v. Nationals (65-94) Why We ROOT: The Red Sox are currently tied with the Mariners, so every loss for the Sawx means a bit more breathing room and lower odds of a one-game playoff just to formally make the playoffs.
