War on Drugs – Strangest Thing

I'm pretty sure that this one is my runaway favorite song of the year. I had the pleasure of seeing them play it live with DK when the band came through town a couple of months ago. The big BOOM right before the breakdown was my favorite part of the show, and is probably my favorite moment in music this year.

Apologies for the late post (and overposting on CH's solid second choice), but...

2017 Postseason, Game 5: Goodbye, AL East

No, really. You can go home now.

HOU @ BOS: Morton vs. Porcello (HOU up 2-1)

WAS @ CHC: Scherzer vs. Quintana (series tied 1-1)

CLE @ NYY: Bauer vs. Severino (CLE up 2-1)

LA @ ARI: Darvish vs. Greinke (LA up 2-0)

Lots and lots of high quality pitchers. I'll bet a couple of them even go 5 innings.

Game 161: Tigers @ twins

We're almost there. For the first time in seven years, there WILL be October baseball that means something.

I'm hoping that this isn't my last game log for the year. It will be really nice if I need to half bake something for a game against the Spiders next Saturday.

Even if I don't get that opportunity, though, this year has been a success that I don't think any of us saw coming. There will be plenty of time to speculate about the best course moving forward, but for now, the best course of action is to drink another beer and watch the Twins beat up on a team that is decidedly tensing in the opposite direction.

Tonight, Slegermania takes hold again. I hope he's able to pitch however far into the game as the plan dictates. Also, some dude named Sanó gets to hopefully play his way into the Tuesday lineup.

If this it, then I've half-baked my last game log for the year. Go Twins!

2017 Game 155: twins @ tigers

If the Twins win this evening, they'll match a win total that I would have, before the season began, considered a benchmark for a successful season.

They've done well - better than I would've expected, clearly - and have also been the benefactors of some crazy disparity in the AL (only five teams in the AL have records above .500. Considering that the AL has gone 156-137 in interleague play this season, it's not that there aren't a ton of wins to go around).
