    You have to wonder if Bregman after getting hit by Joe Kelly was taking it out on Red Sox 1B Coach Tom Goodwin? Or was it just karma? mlb.com/cut4/alex-bregman-crin…Id=ed-13209531-1101617993

    Quote from Trillium: “Was down to 39 yesterday morning. So, the furnace has been working. ” Not quite there yet for us, but wife is opening windows and doors to let air flow, making it too cold for me. But at least we are not running the AC. Hopefully a few months before the gas starts going up again.

    My oldest sister had a high school history teacher who had escaped from Cuba. He told the class a lot of stories about people escaping from Cuba and also the Iron Curtain to Berlin, which she shared with me. Having those stories shared with you at a young age made visiting Berlin a whole lot more interesting.

    Quote from max.patch: “i fell asleep after the 8th -- glad i didn't miss anything! ” Georgia boy Josh Reddick hit a 419 foot Home Run. 2 years left after this on his 4 year deal. Would not be surprised to see the Braves sign him after that for a veteran fourth OF/PH with lots of playoff experience (Red Sox, A's, Dodgers, and now Astros). Great clubhouse guy too, could play a role similar to what Beltran did for Astros last year.

    Appreciate the extra 4 runs in the 9th, but it would have been more interesting if it had stayed 3-2, especially since Bregman scored the third run after it appeared Joe Kelly intentionally hit him.

    Quote from LIhikers: “Here's a question for the Base Weight thread. What items constitute base weight ? I have no idea what my base weight is when backpacking. ” I have always thought it was your pack and everything in it except consumables (food and water) since they vary. I guess fuel really is another consumable, but since I use a canister there is less variance so I go ahead and include it.

    Experts saying the Astros v. Red Sox is the best LCS ever having the two best team. Deepest team (103 wins despite injuries) against the winningiest (108). Alex Bregman never lacking in confidence said with out the injuries to Altuve, Springer, and Correa (also McCullers and Morton), the Astros would have set the all time win record this year. Of course Red Sox probably win more too with a healthy Chris Sale. Should be a great series as long as Sale can go a little deeper and David Price pitches…
