With the Astros sweeping Cleveland in emphatic style with an 11-3 beatdown, not only did it signal the end of Cleveland’s season, it also signalled the end of Chief Wahoo. And judging by the comments at the end of the article, it doesn’t sit well with their fans...who clearly have no idea why the logo is so offensive.
And the season ended for our former MVP Josh Donaldson. The pending free agent is ready to put his ugly 2018 season behind him.
And with regard to possible future Jays, Cavan Biggio is looking to develop his skillset in the Arizona Fall league. He is also going to be looked at as a future outfielder.
The postseason championship series is virtually complete. With the Brewers vs the Dodgers posing a tantalizing match up in the NLDS, Boston take on the Yankees in Game 4 today, a day after they handed out a medieval beating to the Sith 16-1. As much as i despise the Red Sox, i did enjoy that scoreline immensely. I do expect the Red Sox to make it through to face the Astros in the ALDS. I think both the championship series will be compelling.
It also pains me to highlight a Red Sox player but i have to give huge credit to BROCK HOLT! who put together the first cycle in postseason history, going 4-for-6 with three runs and five RBIs. He singled off Luis Severino (as did everyone it seemed), tripled off Chad Green in the fourth inning, doubled off Stephen Tarpley in the eighth, and homered off catcher-turned-mopup-man-turned-Miguel Cabrera-punching bag- Austin Romine in the ninth.
Only slightly less impressive was George Springer as he cranked out 2 homers in the Astros win over Cleveland. Springer now has eight homers in his past nine postseason games, tying him with Reggie Jackson, Jim Thome and his former teammate, Carlos Beltran, for the most over such a stretch. And the scary thing is, he is only getting better.
And the postseason wouldn't be compete without a feel good story and even better that its a former Jay. Erik Kratz is this year’s David Ross.
