ALCS Game Five, NLCS Game Four, 2015

American League game: Royals at Blue Jays, 1:00PM PT, TV: FS1

It’s an elimination game: down 3 games to 1, the Jays have to win or they’re done. This game is a rematch of pitchers from Game One: Edinson Volquez of the Royals and Marco Estrada of the Jays. Volquez is 1-1 with a 2.31 ERA in this postseason and went six scoreless innings against the Jays in Game One. Estrada is also 1-1 in the postseason with a 3.09 ERA. He went 5 1/3 innings against the Royals in Game One, giving up six hits and three runs.

National League game: Mets at Cubs, 5:00PM PT, TV: TBS

This one is also an elimination game: the Mets are one win away from going on the World Series. If the Cubs are to make the prediction in the movie “Back to the Future” come true, they have to win the next four games. The Mets send out lefty Steven Matz, making his first appearance in the NLCS after giving up three runs in five innings against the Dodgers in the NLDS. He’ll be opposed by Jason Hammel, also appearing for the first time in the NLCS after a short (four runs in three innings) outing against the Cardinals in the NLDS.

    • WBBA – it’s like you are crying out for someone to comment on your “God” tweets. I grant you some of them I find very funny (really I do). However, it still feels like you either have some serious God-envy or you are making light of something I – and perhaps others – find to be deeply significant and meaningful. Nobody here is throwing up mock-Atheist quotes, nor should they. Atheists have been mistreated by people of faith throughout the centuries and that is not right. In the end though it feels like you are dancing pretty close to or beyond a rule violation on this site.
      I would be interested to know what you – and others – think on this. If you feel I’m overreacting, by all means let’s talk about it.

        • I realize he is just re-posting. But it does seem like he has a particular fascination in re-posting them here with increasing regularity.
          Although I have found some of them funny, snarkiness is a good description – especially for this last one.

          • In re-reading my first comment, it does seem like I was crediting WBB for writing the account. That was never my intention.
