Less than a year after the Boston Red Sox won the World Series, GM David Dombrowski is out of a job. Not a fan of the guy but wow is this a quick trigger.

Meanwhile, Tigers GM Al Avila, with the team the first to 100 losses this season, is still safe.  ::)

honestly, I get this decision. He wasn't a long term builder and the team is now suffering for buying that championship with their future.
To me, it was a shortsighted decision to hire him for that specific reason in the first place. That alone told you you would end up in this undesirable position.
Thats what I loved about watching the Astros build during their 3 100 loss seasons. They were edging towards something long term, a team that could contend for quite a few years, and we should.
the guy did just what he was supposed to, but Boston can't blame him, only themselves for their current position.

100 wins 3 years running.
Coming from 3 100 loss seasons, this is quite enjoyable but man, this is probably going to be the toughest post season ever to muddle through for this team.
Yankees are top tier, Twinkies have been hanging tough all year along and what the hell with the A's? I mean, I knew they weren't bad, but I didn't think they were 95 wins good, holy shit.
NL doesn't bother me too much unless its LA again because they know each other so well, and not to mention, 100 plus wins there as well.

I really donít want to be part of a world where the Blues win the Stanley Cup and the Card win the World Series in the same goddamned year, so go Washington and go Houston I guess.

That Dodgers collapse was impressively epic.

lol gee whiz

That Dodger collapse was something to be sure. I was so hoping the Astros wouldn't fade like LA and Atl.

this post season is taking years off of my life.
Astro bats need to wake up, and soon.

Looking further, Im really in a quandary. If the Astros don't make the. WS, the Yankees will obviously be the best and most deserving team.
In the NL, if the Cards make it, well, I have an issue with that as a lifelong Stros fan. If the Nats win, I suppose I can pull for them.
Bottom line, if my guys dont go, its not going to be a great WS for me

The Stros and the Nationals have the most former Tigers on their teams, so I'm pulling mainly for those two. If both of those teams make the WS then I can happily sit back and watch. I get that you can't (lol), and I'm pulling for you.

If it's those other two...well, there's plenty of other sports for me to pay attention to until next season. No offense intended Buc...

West coast plus cool job means I can watch from work.

Unless MLB doesn't have a backup umpire available, but hey, that'd never happen for a post-season game.

This reminds me of those early 00s Angels teams that just owned the Yankees every postseason.

This series is over.

Whew. I can watch this World Series and be content either way...as long as I ignore the fact that JV, Scherzer, and Anibal Sanchez were all former Tigers at the same time and it still wasn't enough for my team to snag a World Series ring. Yay!

Helluva finish to that Game 6 though. Wow.

It would appear, Crewe, that I am very sane after all, haha.

I'll be rooting for the Nats, but only because it'd be cool to see them win their first. I hate that the Stros have our number, but they're one of the more respectable organizations and rosters in baseball so I wouldn't be upset if they won either.

Hard to imagine all those guys on one team norm.  :(

My heart can't take much more!
