Folks, day two of the offseason does not feel much better than day one did. The pain of the Yankees’ season ending will take a while to get over, but the baseball world will move on beginning tonight. The ALCS between Houston and Tampa Bay opens up, and tomorrow the NLCS matchup of Atlanta and Los Angeles kicks off. If you want to chat about the game, you can do so here.
We’re still going to focus our coverage to breaking down details from the ALDS and the season overall, beginning with Peter talking about how the Yankees failed to properly apply their strategy to bank on Gerrit Cole. Josh looks at how the Yankees could take away something from the team that just beat them, Erica breaks down how inexplicable the Yankees’ pinch-hitting plans have been, and Joe will give us a social media update that will send off the season.
1. Will you bother watching the ALCS tonight?
2. We’re all rooting for the National League at this point, right?
