You keep being trees. The present day arrives, and you are trees. The future arrives and passes, and you are trees. You did not evolve into a duck, but in a way that’s okay. You are trees.

It is possible to become a duck. You have to get to the step where you become a stone. Once you get there, everything leads to becoming a duck.

Might want to cover third base. wow

First to third on a walk!

that was pretty great.

Solo home runs cant hurt you.

Would not have guessed deGrom would make it even three innings after the first five batters.

TBS pops up a graphic that shows the home team wins Game 5 56% of the time. The announcers comment that's not much of an advantage. It isn't, but the MLB average is 54% so there is an improvement.

If Chase Utley hits a home run here..... man

missed his pitch

I thought it was gone when he hit it, but I forgot he's not 2012 Chase Utley anymore.

Unfortunately for cheaptoy, all those years of futility by the local nine in Ruth's house clouded his judgment.

Gah! Stupid toilet bowls!

He still did eliminate much of the citizenry. bS, CoC, free, nibbish, punman, myself, and Zack all have Toronto winning it all but picked the wrong NLCS winner and have fewer points so we're done. Rhu_Ru has the same remaining teams but fewer points so also eliminated. Finally, The Pirate, Jeff, and spooky have Toronto as winning the ALCS but an eliminated team winning NLCS and WS so they're also eliminated.

I think that leaves three people that can outright win: AMR, Beau, and rpz. rpz and meat have the same remaining teams but rpz with one more point, so meat is eliminated. Philosopher, hungry joe, and davidwatts have just KC left but fewer points than anyone else with KC left so they're gone too.

I worked through the numbers and unless I am mistaken:

if Tor and Cubs win CS, Cubs win WS, Beau wins
if Tor and Cubs win CS, Tor win WS, cheaptoy wins
if Tor and Mets win CS, cheaptoy wins
if KC and Cubs win CS, Cubs win WS, Beau wins
if KC and Cubs win CS, KC win WS, AMR and I are tied for the win
if KC and Mets win CS, I win

Mets on the board in the 1st!

Dodgers on the board in the first!

solid hit by the Dodgers, then bloop doink bloop doink

Heck of a catch by Ethier!

Was going to say exactly that.

This is good, so its probably against the unwritten rules of baseball

You’re A Single-Celled Organism. Can You Evolve Into A Duck?

Oh,that's brilliant. That's my favorite thing in the Internet today.

Do I have to remind you of Ken Tremendous and Joe Pos breaking down the craziness in Toronto?

Aww, crap.

The evolution into

~~Michael Phelps~~a duck is second best.I got to a printout of a Duck, which is pretty close, I think

I haven't seen that one.

On the button, but right at Granderson.

The bracket is about to get a lot more red.

no perfect brackets left.

And nobody can finish worse than UW's three points. Boom!

hey, I have a shot at not finishing last!
