Name the pitcher who has pitched the most innings in the 2019 Postseason?

The Buzbee fella bought page A12 of yesterday’s Chron to tell us he didn’t screen with the Chron’s E-Board because he doesn’t think much of endorsements. Then he listed the folks the Chron endorsed who didn’t win.  Got it?

Speaking of the Chron, yesterday I got the two-star edition of Sunday’s Chron with absolutely zero coverage of the Saturday night Astros dramatic win. In today’s Chron Sports Section, World Series coverage starts on page C10. Got it?

Early Voting in Person starts today.

the ten coolest baseball players who have ever lived:

My goodness! Justin Verlander, Gerrit Cole, Jose Altuve, #SpringerDinger, A.J. Hinch, Alex Bregman, Josh Reddick, Babe Ruth, Hank Aaron, and Mickey Mantle.

Want the next ten?

Justin Verlander of course leads the 2019 MLB Postseason with 24 1/3 innings pitched.

After the Yankees tied it in the top of the ninth, I told my nephew Dave that we might be here a while. In the bottom of the ninth, with two outs, #SpringerDinger drew a walk. I told Dave that an Altuve base hit in the gap would do it for a speedy #SpringerDinger. As soon as he hit it, I knew it was extra bases but not until it sailed over… and just like that, we are in our third World Series.

Commentary has said it before. When you are at The Yard for a playoff game, you don’t get to hear what the announcers are saying and you don’t get to see the postgame live interviews, or watch A-Rod, Big Papi and the Big Hurt give their takes. The game ended about ten after eleven and we stuck around for the trophy presentation. I didn’t get home until close to one am and I still got to catch some of the postgame coverage.

The Chron picked us to win the ALCS in 6. I wonder what they are thinking about the World Series.
