Schwarber leading off.  Wonder if Cora spoke to Davey. 

1. Kyle Schwarber (DH)
2. Enrique Hernandez (CF)
3. Rafael Devers (3B)
4. Xander Bogaerts (SS)
5. Alex Verdugo (LF)
6. Hunter Renfroe (RF)
7. Kevin Plawecki (C)
8. Bobby Dalbec (1B)
9. Christian Arroyo (2B)

AL:
Yankees over Red Sox

Astros over White Sox
Rays over Yankees

Astros over Rays

NL:
Dodgers over Cards

Brewers over Braves
Dodgers over Giants

Brewers over Dodgers

WS:
Astros over Brewers

But because I'm my father's daughter I can't help but want the Red Sox to win it all :couch:

So you are expecting Max to give up 3-run HRs rather than solo shots?  :hysterical:

Max won't go more than 6 innings...

I can see him too amped up and struggling with his control at the start. So you are probably correct.

Contract year, so he comes in and pitches a no-no because of the Dodgers amazing coaching.

8. Bobby Dalbec (1B)
9. Christian Arroyo (2B)

He says he needed to split his lefties and righties. That's probably just a cover for having talked to Davey over the weekend.

JD Martinez sprained his ankle when he tripped over second base on Sunday. He won't play.

I'll predict a low-scoring, close game tonight, and parlay $1 of Natsinpwc's money on Under 8 runs with Bos +1.5 on the run line.

I will be cheering for my neighbors, the Yankees, although cheering for Schwarber some, too. One way the Yankees win? Borrow Mickey Rivers' bat.

 The fact that the announcers have to dance around that goes back to MLB and their wonderful discipline

So who predicted at season’s start that Rizzo and Schwarber would be the lead off hitters in the AL WC?

So Schwarber was a trade deadline acquisition from the Cubs??? With a knee injury??

What a bunch of unprepared yutzes the ESPN guys are.

I had been flipping the mute on and off and missed most of the conversation. Did anyone correct Matty V on that flub?

Nope. The others probably don't know.
