Dodgers have been on a tear. Hopefully they can maintain it through the playoffs.

I am kind of torn about this season. I mean of course I hope the Dodgers win it all finally, but if they do it almost feels tainted cause it is such a shortened and fucked up season.
It is a shorter season but more teams are going to make the playoffs. So if they somehow do win I am not sure it would be tainted or easier. The playoff road would be harder if anything.

I think it'll feel pretty legitimate when all is said and done, whoever wins. They made the season long enough so that I don't feel like the variance of baseball hasn't had enough time to separate the wheat from the chaff. In a lot of ways this season is actually harder than typical because of all the COVID shit.

I don't think there should be an asterisk.

OOh, Yankees are current sitting on the outside of the playoff picture. I hope they remain so.

Astros being sub .500 makes me sad, but they are a gawd damn mash unit for both the position players and the pitchers. They will likely won't go far in this year's playoffs, if they even make it at all.

It's 8 teams?

I thought it was just div winners and then whoever is 2nd in the div make it, not an additional 2 WC.

How fucking retarded.

I swear to Jesus: if the Padres win a Series before the Dodgers, the owners need to scorched earth the management and start over.

I really hope they let in at least 25% capacity for the fans in this playoff bubble. The White Sox are fun to watch for the first time in 15 years, I'll happily make the drive to SD to watch them.
