Sorry O's fans. You were another victim of the infamous postman jinx. It's powers are strong.

MLB might be getting worse despite the pitch clock being a huge improvement but college baseball and the world baseball classic keeps getting better so I can't complain too much.

Yeah, I admit that today's MLB gets rather boring when you have the same team in the ALCS for seven straight seasons. Yeah, I know that Braves were in eight straight.But that streak as a huge asterick next to it due tot he strike year in the middle where the Expos were winning when the season was called.

Some might also say that the Astros streak has a HUGE asterisk next to it. And they'll keep beating that garbage can, er, I mean drum forever.

I know that is a happpy talking point but considering the three teams the Astros beat in that tainted run all were proven to be cheating as well that season (Red Sox, Yankees & Dodgers), it starts to rung hollow. Especially in the wake of having all eyes on the club ever since and they continue to dominate. Perhaps it wasn't just a few guys banging on a trash can that season that made the team so strong.

No one suggests that cheating is OK. But it is built into the game at every level from Little League on up.

For the record, the Astros have been in six straight ALCS since that scandal and intense scrutiny broke. Just sayin'.

We can talk about the Orioles. What do you suppose they are doing this off season?

I’m not an Orioles fan but I sure am excited about seeing Jackson Holliday at some point next year.
The amount of talent they have and that’s coming soon is absurd. Adley, Gunnar, Jackson, Colton, Heston, Grayson…I’m probably forgetting some too. Exciting times in Baltimore

O's fas can throw a log in the hot stove league fire while some other clubs have business in the here and now to address.

In the ALCS, the 'Stros have owned the Rangers for years. But their bats have been on fire the past few weeks. No one in Houston is taking this series for granted. But I do hope they choose to pitch to Yordan.

I actually drove Ballcoach to Richmond this summer to see Jackson Holliday play for the Norfolk Tides. We sat behind the Tides dugout with dozen of other Orioles fans dressed out in O's gear, and Holliday did not disappoint: he got FIVE hits in six at bats! :shock:

Earlier in the summer, Holliday almost got to play in Lynchburg, but he got called up to high A ball the week before.

A minor league pipeline podcast i listen to talked about the possibility that the season Holliday just had as one of if not the greatest minor league seasons ever. It was absurd that he seemingly got 2+ hits every night even when moving up levels. Never slowed him down one bit. As I said earlier I’m not an O’s fan but I checked on him a few times a week.
