Home Cooking for Game 5 – not much of an advantage

mom_cookingThe Royals, Blue Jays and Dodgers have all avoided death in Game 4, and now return home for Game 5. They have the advantage, right? Not necessarily.

Since the inception of the LDS (that’s baseball, not the religion), there have been 23 series that went to Game 5. The Home team has won just 8 times, and only 3 times in the last 16.

Of course, none of that means anything – we all start a new every game. And after being down 2-1, coming home for those 3 teams means they are still alive. But they each have their work cut out

  2. Home team went 2-for-2 in these home-cookin’ games today. Maybe there’s something to the poutine and ribs diet.

    I’ll be pulling for the visitors in tomorrow night’s game. Utley is too much of a Buttley to root for the Dodgers.
