For those watching the Brewers-Dodgers I wonder if I'm the only one noticing the umpire behind the plate calling a small strike zone.
My goodness, most of those balls he's called would've been called strikes on the ALCS

The AL is very top heavy, but I wouldn't automatically assume that Boston is head and shoulders above the Brewers as Milwaukee was 13-7 in interleague or the Dodgers as LA was 12-8 in interleague play, and because overall, the NL had the upperhand in interleague play in 2018.

I expect a long (6 or 7 games) World Series, no matter if its Milwaukee or LA playing the Red Sox.

Oh Iím not making any assumptions, unlike much of Sox Nation, but I really like the way weíre playing right now. I havenít watched much of the NL this year either. How do we match up vs MIL/LA?

What do you guys think we do with JD in a NL park? Sit Beni? I donít want to break up the outfield but IDK if JD has ever played 1st. Definitely canít sit JBJ the way he is playing at the bottom of the order. He only had 3 hits but they were clutch as hell. Beni came up big for us, too, though. Mookie to 2nd?

The first two games will be in Boston using the DH rule.
I suspect Cora will go with the hot bat when they play in L.A

The time Hader was used in the game wasnít the issue. The Brewers needed those 0s whether it was between the third-fifth innings, or the sixth-eighth stanzas.

The problem was Counsell deciding to use Jeremy Jeffress and Xavier Cedeno in the sixth when they were like his 6th-7th best options in a do-or-die game. I would have gone to Javier Guerra, Brandon Woodruff, even Joakim Soria before them. Even Freddy Peralta. Jefress was almost unusable in my opinion, he had allowed 14 hits in 6 2/3 postseason innings.
