While I’m delighted that it has been 2 days since the last Dodgers’s playoff game - I’m thinking of getting a sign made - it does rip the heart out of my interest in the National League Championship series. The Cardinals have Goldschmidt, a man who deserves playoff success perhaps more than anyone else in the game not called Mike Trout. But the Nationals have half of a roster of former Diamondbacks, and are also considerably less hateable, since Bryce and his hair will be joining the rest of us and watching this on TV. It’s almost the very opposite of Alien vs. Predator. Now that the Dodgers have been eliminated, whoever wins... we win. So, go <team>! Beat <other team>!
