Welcome back to BCB After Dark: the secret after-party for night owls, early risers, new parents and Bear cubs supporters abroad. It is always a pleasure to see you pass. We will waive the cover charge tonight just for you. We have reserved a choice table for you. Your waitress will take your order now. Bring your own drink.
BCB after dark is where you can talk about baseball, music, movies, or whatever else you need to relax, as long as it follows the site rules. Nightlife is encouraged to start the party, but everyone is welcome to join you when you wake up the next morning and in the afternoon.
The Red Sox beat the Yankees tonight, 6-2 in the American League Wild Card Game. Kyle Schwarber beat Gerrit Cole in a wild card game, which no doubt brought back fond memories to Cubs fans. If you want to discuss Schwarber or the game, you are free to do so here.
Last time around, I asked you who you think was going to win the AL pennant and compete in the World Series. It is clear that most of you believe in the Tampa Bay Rays, as 62% of you think you will rehearse as AL Champs. The Crosstown White Sox were second in the vote with 25% and 8% believe Dusty Baker and the Astros will play in the Fall Classic. Only 3% of you ever got it wrong after picking the Yankees and 3% picked the Red Sox and are still alive.
Tuesday evening / Wednesday morning, I do not do the full test of the film. I will give you my opinion on the years 1998 You’ve got mail in tomorrow’s edition. But I have time to include a jazz track for you to enjoy. If you’re going to skip this, now is the time.
We lost the great Dave Brubeck almost a decade ago, but his eldest son Darius Brubeck still plays his father’s tunes and his own. This is the Darius Brubeck Quartet in Poland in 2019 playing his father’s composition “In Your Own Sweet Way”, which Dave wrote for his wife, Iola, and Darius’ mother.
Since yesterday I asked who you think was going to be the AL participant in the World Series, it makes sense for you to decide who you think the Tampa Bay Rays (or whoever wins) will play.
The Giants and Dodgers have had seasons for ages, which means the Dodgers find themselves stuck in a one-game Wild Card game with the Searing Cardinals. The Brewers and the Braves were almost forgotten in the stories about San Francisco, Los Angeles and St. Louis, but I can guarantee that one of those two teams will play in the NL Championship Series. And from there, they just need to win four games.
So who will be the representative of the National League in the World Series? And no, you can’t write to the Cubs. This ship has sailed.
Who will be the winner of the NL pennant
Los Angeles Dodgers
Cardinals of Saint-Louis
Giants of San Francisco
