Well, it's only halfway through Game 1 and I'm already thinking about shutting it off. Glasnow was terrible, then Yarbrough was terrible, and the Dodgers are well on their way to a laugher tonight. Certainly not an enjoyable watch for people who have no vested interested in either of these teams.

And now Mookie hits a solo homer leading off the bottom of the sixth, off Tampa's third (sucky) pitcher of the night, and once again I get to see Mookie smile while wearing a different uniform.

I'm feeling a lot of bitterness toward Mookie, the Dodgers, AND the Sox at the same time, however irrational any of that might be.

I said it at the time of the trade and I’ll say it again, “Screw John Henry & screw Red Sox management.”

Dodgers finally about to end their curse, achieving a World Series title at long last.

Funny that in the leagues shortened season, both LA teams won championships.

Yeah, I've tried to be understanding of their financial situation, but really, come on—they had baseball's second-best player, and the ability to pay the lux-tax penalties. I mean, how do you get rid of such a talent?

Of course, I'm annoyed with Mookie too, because he didn't stick to his promise to test free agency. And I get it, covid was something no one planned for, so he took what was likely to be the best available deal, but it still rubs me the wrong way that he didn't back up all of his tough talk about "doing his part" for other players.

And, like I said before, probably at least some of my feelings are irrational, but I am a fanatic, after all. ;D

Believe it or not, one of my Dodger-fan friends actually thought the Dodgers were giving up a lot for Mookie. I mean, come on ... Dodgers could've also given Boston Dustin May and Gavin Lux and still would've gotten a good deal.

Looks like Mookie's going to get another ring shortly...does Price get one too given he opted out of the season? Avery got one with the Fakers but he played most of the regular season and only opted out of the playoffs.
Any odd typos are because I suck at typing on an iPhone :D

And just like that, the series knotted up 1 apiece.

Rays pen did its best to blow it, but they've made it a series. I'm wondering, though, why L.A. went with a bullpen game in Game 2 of the World Series.
