I still expect the Astros to win either tonight or tomorrow but if the Dodgers were to win outright, I wouldn’t imagine it being an upset as I reckon they’re closely matched, especially with the Dodgers having four home games.


#142

I don’t think it’d be an upset, but does not having the designated hitter for the next 2 nights upset the astros.

Verlander V Hill. Two late 30’s pitchers having excellent seasons. I’m going with Verlander, although they’ll be making a movie about Hill if he wins tonight.


#143

Ah… I’m outta me depth here… only a passing interest.
If they need a designated hitter, can they not sign Jamsie up for a night?


#144

NL rules tonight as NL team at home. Means pitcher hits.


#145

Gotchya.
What do they do in the All-Star game?


#146

All star game decides which league hosts the 4th home game in the series.


#147

Aha… I got you here… this season was different in that the team with the best regular season record, regardless of who won the All-Star game, got 4 home games in the World Series…

My question was in the All-Star game do they use NL or AL rules? Or do they alternate, year-to-year?


#148

depending on the stadium that hosts it. AL team. Al rules. NL team etc.


#149

Dolphins trade Jay Ajayi to the Eagles for a 4th round draft pick. The Eagles lack of quality at RB made me sceptical about their chances this year but this could be a game changer for them.


#150

Still don’t with Ajayi.


#151

No worse than NE’s has been over the years. Look at what a heap the likes of Ridley and Vareen have been once they flew the coop. RB’s (with a few exceptions) are only as good as the line creating the holes for them.
I honestly think you could take the most average back in the league and they would get 1200 yards for Dallas.
Look at McFadden in 2015…

I think that Blount, Ajayi the Eagles have two decent hammers to burn clock and wear teams down in the 2nd half.
They do lack a decent 3rd down/change of pace back IMO. The likes of Sproles.


#152

The eagles will go as far as Wentz takes them which will be very far. I just don’t see what ajayi brings to the table.


#153

Oh I agree, not a game changer.
Decent insurance if Blount goes down. Big bodied guy who runs hard.


#154

Dodgers force game 7. Is it their’s to lose now?


#155

should be. but you never can tell.


#156

Didn’t expect the dodgers to win but as a mate of mine pointed out, they only really messed up 2 innings in the series and it cost them, other than that they’ve been in control for the most part. I thought Verlander v hill was the key for an astros win.
But sure who doesn’t love a game 7 anyway


#157

Texans reporting Watson torn an ACL in practice today. Damn shame that as Watson looked the real deal and the battle between the Jaguars, Titans and Texans looked interesting.


#158

Terrible injury. picked him up in the res dubs league this year.

as its a 2 qb league his loss is turning out to be a bit of a ■■■■■■■ for me.

ITs his 2nd major knee injury. Hopefully he comes out of it the other side.


#159

This should be a good watch .I don’t know much about the back story but I believe there’s abit of beef between these two ! An espn 30 for 30 featuring Bill Belichick & Bill Parcells


#160

7 for Belichick
2 for tuna.
