For some reason, the "Solace" thread has been taken down but after the Braves gave up 10 runs at home to the Cards in the first inning and the Dodgers gave up the Salami to the Nats in the 10th inning, those 2 teams arguably feel worse than the Twins especially being the favorites. Plus, playing in the snow would be no fun. So congrats on a real nice season and looking forward to 2020.

You mean the following thread? Still up for me:

Mods, I suppose this post could be moved there?

Two more examples of getting to the playoffs first, then play to win. Each playoff teams start 0-0.

We can always use more solace.

We laugh at gypsies, fortune tellers, and horoscopes, yet we trust baseball prospect lists.

Kershaw once again shows his playoff ineptitude. 

 

Guy is a great pitcher, but he sure melts when it comes down to brass tacks in the postseason.

At least a quantum.

What if the Yankees destroy their next opponent then breeze through the world series. Would we view what happened to our TWINKIES differently? Food for thought.

Considering that the Royals could've put up a better fight, I would definitely say no. It was one of the worst displays of the game of Baseball I have ever seen in my life, regular season or post-season. It was so bad that I did not even really consider it baseball. It was something other than baseball.

No, not really.We were celebrating this offense all season and the best we could do was 7 runs in three games.We didn't face Gibson, Koufax and Marichal.Yankee pitching ranked 14th in ERA, actually below us.Food for thought
