Baseball is over now, and I am in denial. It always takes a few days for it to really settle in that this isn’t just an off-day, it’s not the All-Star Break, I can’t turn on a game in a few days and have baseball keep me company again. There’s always a feeling of loneliness…
As the tie game stretched on, it eventually went past the point of no return for Alex Cora (and for Nathan Eovaldi).
Game 1 of the World Series included several unpredictable moments, but none like the three-run, pinch-hit home run off the bat of Boston’s Eduardo Nuñez, whose blast over the Green Monster put the game out of reach.
What the Brewers had was a plan. And then …
The defending NL champs vs. the team with the NL’s best record, and all kinds of star power.

Lance McCullers (and Dallas Keuchel?) vs. Yu Darvish (and Clayton Kershaw?), in Los Angeles.
Dodgers manager Dave Roberts gains a tactical advantage for Game 7 by having Clayton Kershaw available in relief.
Dave Roberts mostly pulled the right strings in Game 2, but the Dodgers still took the painful loss.

Time is a flat circ … OH MY GOD, HURRY UP ALREADY!
Modern bullpen usage be damned, Dave Roberts was determined to use his best pitchers in Game 5 and the Dodgers are moving on.
