  1. Mrs. Hayes tried out her new pressure cooker tonight on a batch of meatballs with peppers, fennel, and radiatori. Everyone agreed it's going in the rotation; even the Poissonnier, who is cutting her canines, cleaned her bowl. Now I'm sipping a cup of Douglas fir spring tip tea and listening to Rockin' John's Fats Domino special. Once his show wraps I'll switch to the KLAC stream.

  2. The jalapeño and I are watching the game with my mom at my parents' house. It's a nice bit of intergenerational bonding. Plus I'm enjoying playing hooky from putting the younger one to bed.

  3. Have they said when the last time was in the World Series that two teams combined for one hit in the first five innings?

  4. That's it? Wood gives up a hit and he gets pulled? Was he on a pitch limit that got expanded? Or, critically, Springer just faced him for the third time and Roberts was planning on pulling him anyway and was praying for one more out.

      1. I was factoring in the 20-minute drive home (which I hadn't mentioned). We left during the top of the seventh and he drifted off at about 10:20.

  5. Dr. Chop went to bed so I paused stranger things and turned on the game in time to see Springer’s home run.

  6. I clearly haven’t watched this whole tilt, but pulling your starter who’s only thrown 76 pitches with a less than solid bullpen seems like too quick a hook, no?

  7. The complexion of this game just changed dramatically.

    Fox TV broadcast of stadium noise sounds exactly the same.

  8. Keuchel at home tomorrow and then Verlander for Game 6. I'm sure Astros are still feeling pretty good other than their closer situation. Not like Jansen has been dominant, though. I think Astros need to finish in 6. If it goes 7, that's not good. Of course, if they lose tomorrow, they'll be very happy to have a Game 7. Still, this has been a fantastic series so far.

      1. 8 home runs served up in the post season. Definitely not automatic. I did type this after #8 (Truth in Advertising).
