Marathon World Series Game Brings Out Twitter Fans ‘A’ Game

The World Series Game last night was the longest game in World Series history lasting until the 18th inning before the Dodger’s Max Muncy ended it with a home run. When a game goes that long, it gives fans plenty of time to comment via Twitter on the historic game. Apparently, with the game going basically forever, it brought out the Twitterverse’s ‘A’ game. Here are a few examples. A Love Story: What a story. Max Muncy's parents met in the third inning of this game, fell in love, got married, had a family, and watched their boy grow up

Astros-Indians ALDS Preview and Predictions

The last two American League champions will meet in the ALDS starting today and this series promises to be a good one. The defending World Series champion Houston Astros will take on the team that came within outs of winning the World Series two years ago, the Cleveland Indians. Both teams feature good pitching, but shaky bullpens, along with batters that can bust a game open with one swing of the bat. What’s astonishing is that this series isn’t even the most anticipated, but we’ll get to that in a later post. Nonetheless, while you’re waiting for Red Sox-Yankees, these

In fact, there’s only two Braves players that were on that 2013 roster: Freddie Freeman and Julio Teheran. The Dodgers feature 5 players from that team: Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp, Clayton Kershaw, Kenley Jansen, and Hyun-Jin Ryu. These are not the same teams as back then. The Braves are full of youth and led by two of the best young players in the game, and feature many players

Rockies-Brewers NLDS Preview and Predictions

Now that the Wild Card games are out of the way, it’s time to get into the real business. While many people consider the Wild Card games the postseason (and technically it is), it seems a lot like a play in game for the actual postseason. So, while the Rockies beat the Cubs, the Brewers were watching and waiting for the winner. This’ll be a fun series between two somewhat similar teams. Milwaukee has a superior bullpen, while Colorado has better starters. Both teams have great batters like Christian Yelich, Lorenzo Cain, Nolan Arenado, and Charlie Blackmon. With two teams

The MLB season is winding down, and with it, teams are beginning to clinch playoff berths. Two more teams did just that last night.

The Brewers still have a chance to win the National League
