(IMO, low scores and okay defense / pitching is underrated)

Are, Seabreeze.  Not is; are.  As in defense & pitching are underrated.

I agree. In fact, one of the best baseball games I've ever seen was a 1-0 game. The game I'm referring is game 7 of the 1991 World Series in which John Smoltz and Jack Morris dueled to a 0-0 tie after 9 innings before Gene Larkin got his One Shining Moment in the 10th Inning. 

That game culminated what was a great fall classic.  Save for one game, it was very competitive.  That year's postseason was very good TBH.

It was nice for me to see Minnesota win there, but eventually, Atlanta would be okay.  It was great to see Smoltz get a title, albeit one when they were close enough throughout most of the 90s

The Braves are the first team to punch their ticket into the NLCS. They're waiting for the result of the Dodgers/Giants series.

I have been an Braves fan for many years.. When they had Dale Murphy (I was so mad when they tried him to the Phillies, I believe) and then in the 90s when they went from worse to first.

I have not been keeping up with much sports but I hope they made it to the WS and win the title this year!!!!

And there goes my prediction for the World Series. Curse you, Astros.  :boo: Now I can only hope for a Red Sox-Giants WS.

I checked back and everywhere else; I don't think I made a World Series prediction!  I went round by round instead.  Currently I'm 1-2.  I could've been 2-2 but San Francisco couldn't get it done last night (well, they weren't even close TBH).  The Giants do get to host tomorrow.

The good news about most of the League Divisional Round ending before a Game 5 was that it gave me a day off from sports.  Looks like the earliest non Baseball night would be a week from Thursday if the NL winner wins in 5 and the AL winner sweeps the runner-up.  The next possible non baseball night would be a week from Friday if either Houston or Boston win in 5 games or less.

The fall classic is slated to start a week from Tuesday as of this post

Here's the schedule of the League Championship Series and the Fall Classic (Following the final Divisional Round Winner Take All Game):


American League Championship: Houston vs Boston (Sunday/Thursday off Day)

10/15: Red Sox at Astros
10/16: Red Sox at Astros
10/18: Astros at Red Sox
10/19: Astros at Red Sox
10/20: Astros at Red Sox *
10/22: Red Sox at Astros *
10/23: Red Sox at Astros *


Game 1 will be on FOX, Game 2 is either on FOX, FS1 (or both).  FS1 likely exclusive after that



National League Championship: Atlanta vs the Surviving NL West Team


Games are slated for October 16, 17, 19, 20, 21, 23, & 24: With a Monday/Friday off day.  Games may be played on the 21, 23-24 based on how the series progresses.  Off of an assumption that the NLCS will go the distance, Atlanta will host the first two and last two games if Los Angeles wins.  San Francisco will host instead if they survive against the defending champions.  All games are slated to air exclusively on TBS.


2021 World Series: (Thursday/Monday off day)

10/26: NL Winner vs AL Winner
10/27: NL Winner vs AL Winner
10/29: NL Winner vs AL Winner
10/30: NL Winner vs AL Winner
10/31: NL Winner vs AL Winner *
11/02: NL Winner vs AL Winner *
11/03: NL Winner vs AL Winner *


*  If Necessary


Personally, I'm going against my prediction and going with LA FTW.  It's a road game, but the pitching matchup is intriguing.  LA may be loaded just because, but they're very good and well coached & managed

Actually Game 7 is listed as FOX/FS1 too, but Games 3-6 are on FS1 Exclusively.

Actually Game 2 of ALCS will not be a Night game as Both FOX and FS1 are scheduled to have College Football in the Night Slot. But both Channels have open slots in the 3-8PM Range on the College Football Schedule which I think Game 2 of the ALCS will be on. (I had meant to Modify my previous post so feel free to combine my 2 posts.)

Talk about a controversial ending to the Dodgers-Giants series as the Giants are out on what was a check swing that the umpire at 1B said he went, but the videos seem to show otherwise. And there were other calls that didn't go the Giants favor either.

So that means it will be a Dodgers-Braves matchup starting on Saturday night in Atlanta.

Thanks, Jarod [re: start times and networks slated to air the games].


I thought I saw something to the extent of Game 7 being on FS1/FOX.  They've still stuck to FS1 in the past, but as mentioned, with it being College Football season, they're probably not bumping a big game off even if it's a Game 7.  Other than that, FOX would be ideal (would be a Saturday).

Speaking of what makes sense; having the games in the afternoon would avoid conflict.  I didn't list the times or mention them in my original post because they weren't made available until shortly after I posted.

Speaking of post-modification, I guess I ought to modify my original post to reflect the Dodgers' victory & their road status against Atlanta for all the games except Games 3,4 and if necessary, Game 5.

San Francisco had plenty of chances to win the game last night.  To be fair, LA played a great game, and held as much as possible.  The Giants had their shot, but it didn't work out.  That being said, you cannot end the game that way.  What an awful call and end to a great series.  I don't think the Giants were going to get it done anyway, but that was so unfortunate

Boston in seven.  So if I'm wrong, chances are it means Dusty Baker will finally get that title
