Well, that sort of makes it all easier to swallow. You’re not going to beat the Dodgers scoring 1 run. Pitching and/or pitching management aren’t the issue. There is just no offense. If it wasn’t for Arozarena turning into Barry Bonds, they would have been cooked much sooner.

But at least they’ll get to enjoy Wander’s 2027 season

There’s a lot of solace in the Rays losing.

I lived in Central Florida for a long time and won’t soon forget the cowbells. Miserable fucking lot of fans.

You’re a good man (and a gentleman and a scholar). Tough break, but the Dodgers are a house.

Sometimes you make good decisions and get bad results. The Rays are here with their minnow payroll, while playing in the toughest division in baseball, because they operate this way. Live by the data, die by the data. But mostly live, all things considered.

I guess I’m not as nice as many other posters, because for me it really sucks watching Mookie win a World Series for LA.

I’m not an asshole...I didn’t wish for an injury or for him to turn into a pumpkin after leaving Boston...I just could have done without this.

The Dodgers are famous chokers. Come on. One more. I don’t want the season to end.
On one hand, screw the Rays now and forever.
On the other, the Dodgers losing another WS would be pretty damn funny

Edit: same, rymflaherty. I have no ill will toward Mookie but this kinda sucks.

His celebrations make me cringe because they're so childish and silly, but otherwise I don't care how he fares.
