Runner-up in the MLB World Series last season, the Indians - with LeBron James and his Cleveland Cavaliers team-mates watching in the crowd - took down the Yankees 4-0 on Thursday. With Bellinger's 39 homers and left-handed bat in the heart of their order, the Dodgers have a different, more unsafe look than the previous incarnations of the team that has fallen short of the World Series in four straight postseasons. So if you like one of the above teams but don't think you're getting fair value on the futures, consider the series prices first. You want to be in that environment.
RF Aaron Judge set a rookie record with 52 home runs in the regular season and homered in Tuesday's wild-card game.
The gamble paid off in spades as Bauer pitched 6.2 scoreless innings and struck out eight batters.
Still, the Indians' victory ensures that the series would return to a Game 5 in Cleveland next week. They run. They've got power.
"He continues to work on his defense, and I'm really proud of what he's done, the improvements that he's made, and he's only going to get better", Girardi said.
For the Yankees, the later innings were full of mistakes and missed opportunities.
DACA Deadline Only a Temporary Reprieve from Fear of Deportation
Immigration lawyers have been scrambling to get DACA recipients' applications in by the deadline. DACA is a program meant to protect immigrant children from deportation.
In the meantime, Gray lasted just 3.3 innings, gave up three hits, three runs and four walks while striking out two.
Symbolic of the seismic struggle is the smallest man on the Astros, but the probable American League MVP, Jose Altuve, who joined an elite group by hitting three home runs in one post-season game when he bombed his hat trick out of Minute Maid Park.
What happened afterward. Francisco Lindor's grand slam off the right-field foul pole on a 1-0 hanging breaking ball by Chad Green that made it 8-7 Yankees.
The Indians almost gained a lead in the 10th inning after Austin Jackson came through with a two-out single.
Normally a hitter who makes a pitcher pay for his mistakes, Bruce handled what was actually an excellent pitch.
As for Sonny Gray, he failed to get out of the fourth inning - allowing three hits, four walks and three earned runs.
A Closer Look at the NRA's Cleverly Worded Statement on Bump Stocks
As the gunshots rained down, many perceived the sounds they heard to be automatic machine-gun fire. Traditionally, semiautomatic and automatic weapons are supposed to function very differently.
No one knows better than Bruce how well that trade has worked out.
October is here, and with it comes the Major League Baseball playoffs, one of the most exciting times of the year. "And then if I was still in the game, do it again in the second inning and the third and on until I was taken out of the game". ("Progressive" being a relative term.) But there are a couple of meaningful caveats to note there: first, that half the games we've seen so far have been wild card contests with winner-take-all stakes that obviously shift priorities, and second, that yanking a starter who's having a disastrous night isn't so much forward-thinking relief strategy as it is simple damage control.
Normally, I eschew fixed-odds futures like these because you can nearly always get a better payoff by taking the series price in a team's first series and parlaying your winnings onto each subsequent series (or game-by-game in single-elimination tournaments such as the National Football League playoffs or March Madness).
Los Angeles Dodger Clayton Kershaw pitches at Dodger Stadium.
Judge had Yankee Stadium rocking on Tuesday night in the wildcard game, but had the NY faithful shaking their heads on Thursday.
