I miss Trea
You’ll have many chances to see him over the next ten years.

If they ever remake the Babe Ruth story Schwarber has to be the stand in at least for the home run trot.

The worst and corniest movie of all time was The Babe Ruth Story starring William Bendix. It was so bad they say even the Babe walked out on it.

I remember watching it as a kid and don’t really remember much.

I’m surprised Thomson has kept Bohm bating fourth behind Harper since he has been struggling. I guess he does not want to mess with success.

I think the John Goodman movie was worse. Maybe because I expected the Bendix movie to be pap.

Rangers are good but Phillies seem to just be on a mission this postseason. Hard to see anyone beating them. I like Harper and Trea but I'm not too happy about them being known more for their successes on a hated division rival than for us.

At this point if the Phillies don't win the WS it would be among the biggest playoff collapses in history.

In fairness, Turner is still a baby-face. Realmuto looks like an athlete, and Harper is built more like a Crossfit games contender than a beer league.

Schwarber, on the other hand, looks the part. He's tied Reggie Jackson for most post-season homers by a lefty. Even though it was always going to be short term, I miss him more than Bryce.

The Dodgers would like a word. A team tearing through the NLCS or ALCS and then losing the series is not exactly unheard of

Seven-game series are different animals. As much as it would be nice for the Rangers to take care of business, I’m certainly not counting out the Asterisks, who if they get through again certainly can’t be dismissed as far as the next round.

Yeah LOL saying a 90 win team collapses if they don’t win it all.  Rangers are undefeated and beat two 99 win plus teams. Houston are the defending champs with basically the same roster.

The Braves losing in the division series two years in a row with 100 wins is a collapse.

Things can change quickly in the post season.

It's pretty easy to cheer for Max against the Astros.  Looked pretty good in the first.

Wow, what a play by the Rangers center fielder Taveras.

Would’ve looked at having him starting a game four potentially, but they didn’t call me

The d-backs won it but they have officially taken over from the Nats as the worst base running team in MLB.
