Scouts: There’s nothing really good in the news these days. Nothing of any fun to talk about anyways. No really good movies on the horizon, no new shows, just a bit of a blah week. We still have the playoffs, which are starting to turn into a drag. I think I’m just ready for the World Series to start.
Astros 0, Yankees 5 – Scouts: Oh no, folks, we are seriously in trouble of New York going to the World Series here. Houston’s bats have fallen completely silent the past few days and it could not have come at the worst possible time. New York is on a rampage and Aaron Judge has awoken. Masahiro Tanaka held Houston to three hits over 7 strong innings, while Dallas Keuchel got knocked around lasting just 4.2 and giving up 7 hits and 4 runs. We will head back to Houston, where the Astros have to wake up and sweep the next two game or it’s one more year of the New York fans thumping their chests every chance they get. Save us Houston, you are small (ish) market fans last hope!
Dodgers 2, Cubs 3 – Scouts: Facing elimination the Cubs stepped up and gave their fans some hope. Not, you know, a lot of hope, but some hope. Jake Arrieta stuck out 9 over 6.2 innings, Wilson Contreras and Javier Baez both hit solo shots as the Cubs live to fight another day. Joe Maddon got tossed for correctly losing his shit when the umps decided to make a terribly stupid fucking call.
