Suddenly, that Giles trade looks pretty good. Giles, Perez, Paulino. And Osuna keeps hitting people.

Giles misses more bats. Osuna's 2nd post season home run allowed, the first was against Kendrys Morales but we won that game.

If the MLB wants to speed up games, add the DH rule to the National League.Am probably wrong but these games feel like they take forever.

Major League Baseball cleared the Astros of wrongdoing Wednesday after Yahoo Sports and the Metro newspaper reported that Kyle McLaughlin, a man with ties to Astros owner Jim Crane, had been removed from the photographers’ well in Cleveland during Game 3 of the American League Division Series and in Boston during Game 1 of the AL Championship Series. Houston argued that it directed McLaughlin to surveil the opposing dugouts to ensure their opponents weren’t using any illegal tactics to steal the Astros’ signs. In other words: The Astros were making sure the Indians and Red Sox weren’t doing something wrong.

“We were playing defense,” Astros president of baseball operations Jeff Luhnow said. “We were not playing offense. We want to make sure it’s an even playing field.”

The league offering Houston the free pass enraged executives around baseball, who reached out to Yahoo Sports trying to understand the rationale. If the Astros were allowed to monitor another team’s dugout in-game without penalty, one wondered, shouldn’t every team be allowed to do the same? If the Astros were so concerned with opponents’ nefariousness, another said, why did they send a kid in his early 20s whose role with the team is opaque and not simply request MLB send a security professional to examine the dugout from the same spot and ensure everything is above board? Most of all, taking at face value the Astros’ explanation for using McLaughlin, if there is a rule forbidding in-game technology to help steal signs, why is a team allowed to use in-game technology to investigate whether its opponent is illegally stealing signs?

Machado and Dodgers were fined an undisclosed amount just a few hours ago.

The Marlins have signed Victor Mesa and Victor Victor Mesa. VIctor Victor Victor Mesa still on the market, presumably.

I have no idea why the Red Sox are only "slight favourites". They just rolled two 100+ win teams.

In the long tradition of strange MiLB team names, I introduce the Rocket City Trash Pandas, formerly the Mobile BayBears. Beginning in 2020, they will be the AA affiliate of the Angels.

So, Steve Pearce has a very credible case to be the World Series MVP.
