Follow Up On Spurrier & Grier - Post Season Baseball

Wednesday==>Good afternoon to all of my loyal and faithful readers and followers out there in the morass known as cyberspace.

Your favorite Sunshine State blogger needs to get this posting underway because he has things and stuff to do before his baseball games in the afternoon and evening ... so ...

First, as those of you who are sports fans know, and as reported in yesterday’s posting, Steve Spurrier is no longer the Coach of the University of South Carolina Gamecocks, having abruptly left the program on Monday.

This out-of-the-blue event left the sports world wondering WTF was going on. 

Well, Spurrier gave a press conference where he said that he wasn’t retiring, that he had simply quit because the program was going downhill and it was totally his fault and, therefore, it was in the best interests of the school for him to leave now.

Well, I’m sorry Steve ... this still doesn’t smell right to Billi Pod and he still feels that the true reason(s) is being covered up by you and by the school.

Moving on ...

I have no further observations on the Will Grier fiasco.

My blunt language in yesterday’s posting offended some of my loyal and faithful readers and followers ... but ... it represented how Billi Pod felt and still feels ... so ... if you were offended==>you will just have to live with it.

Now ... on to the post season sports scene ... for you, Marty, of course ...

The results from yesterday’s games ...

4:37pm==>ALDS #4 - Cardinals/Cubs from Chicago, won by the Cubs 6-4.

For the first time in the history of Wrigley Field, the Cubs clinch a post season series at home, led by HRs from Anthony Rizzo, Javier Baez and Kyle Schwarber.

This was an very exciting game to watch as the anticipation and energy flowed out of the roaring stands and onto the field. 

The Cubs will now meet the winner of the Mets/Dodgers series for the NL Championship Series on Saturday.

8:30pm==>NLDS #3 - Dodgers/Mets, from New York, won by the Dodger 3-1, on 7 stellar innings from Clayton Kershaw, working on 3-days rest. Kenley Janson worked a 4-out save.

The win sends the series back to LA for the final game on Thursday.

Today’s games are ...

4:00pm==>ALDS #5 - Rangers/Blue Jays, from Toronto, carried on FS1.

On the mound for the Rangers (2-2) will be Cole Hamels (13-8) vs. Marcus Stroman (4-0) for the Jays.

8:00pm==>ALDS #5 - Astros/Royals, from Kansas City, carried on FS1.

On the mound for the Astros (2-2) will be Collen McHugh (19-7) vs. Johnny Cueto (11-13) for the Royals (2-2). 

The winners of these two games will advance to the AL Championship Series on Friday.

Yes, your favorite blogger will remain in his comfortable apartment in the afternoon and evening to watch both of these games.

Moving on ... 

As anticipated, Billi Pod did not watch any of the Democratic Party Debate, carried on CNN. 

So ... it is time to post this and then keep on ...
