As of tonight Yankees Ace Gerrit Cole has 78 strikeouts against 3 walks on the season. This is a 26 to 1 strikeout to walk ratio.

I would say this is very effective pitching on the major league level.

When the Pitcher hits the Batter, sometimes the Batter will charge the Mound...

Gaby - Yes I did the same thing. It was an exciting afternoon. The Jays are a young and fun team to watch. I have a friend that lives in Buffalo and he was happy to take his kids to see the Jays play in that small park in Buffalo. Although he is a Yankee fan, the kids were really excited to see the Jays play up close.

Did you hear this past week there was more talk about the Tampa team moving to Montreal? Last week, the Rays president was talking up their "Sister City" concept with Montreal and said that “For the postseason, we're going to add a sign in the right-field foul territory with a very simple Tampa Bay Montreal graphic. Especially with the eyes of baseball on us this October, we want that visible symbol of our plan and our excitement for it." Then the Journal de Montreal reported "that an important announcement would be made in this file after the municipal elections of November 7." Mayor Valérie Plante said on 98.5 FM that "this announcement will come in due time, but we are very anxious to make it." After all that, there was some public criticism in Tampa so the Tampa president walked back his plan for the Montreal sign for the playoffs.

But this gives me hope that the dream is still alive. One Toronto writer noted that in 2022, the Jays are scheduled to play down in Tampa for a 2 game series in August. Could they possible play that series at the Big O? Hey Nos Demi-Amours may be better than no love at all!

The Jays have a very good team and they do not need to do much to become a very serious World Series contender in the coming years. The AL East is highly competitive, one reason why Baltimore lost 110 games this year, the other is that their pitching is not good......

Great rivalry between the Yankees and the Red Sox for the American Wild Card one-game playoff!
Let's see if the Red Sox can avenge that crushing home loss to the Yankees in the 1978 AL East Division Tiebreaker on a game-winning homerun over the green monster by Bucky Dent at Fenway!!!

And we will have our starters be part of the bullpen in Games 1 and 2, and then we'll decide what we do [for Games] 3 and 4…”

Incredible how the Red Sox have woken up in the playoffs...this is a team during the regular season that choked it's way out of first place in the AL East...
got in the playoffs back door on the last day of the season at the expense of the Yankees, Blue Jays and Mariners...and now they look like World Series Champs!
