    Brantley's Leadership WaR will go unnoticed. Apparently he went Coach Taylor and delivered a Clear Eyes Full Heart type of Speech.
    Altuve said, "That was the best speech I've been a part of."

    I could be mistaken on the timing, but it came out after that Altuve injured his hamstring in the game and that is why he wasn’t running hard.

    If that's the case, justified

    Apparently, Altuve and Bregman would have missed Game 7

    Maybe, but he looked good the previous inning by avoiding the DP and going 1st to 3rd

    The 7th was much less a crucial situation so that could've factored

    BSPN

    I would argue that it’s your fault for tuning in to BSPN.

    :p

    One of the most unheralded stories from this season that paid off was Dusty's loyalty to Yuli.

    That was some 4D level managing that paid off in the postseason.

    Dusty is probably the best manager this team has ever had.

    We are lucky to have him.

    This was years ago, might have been related to the European data tracking or something laws as a lot of the internet started closing down the comment sections. There are some familiar names that post here. I'll try to see if I can find more info about it but I don't think there was a big deal made at the time.

    It definitely was a lull in my baseball engagement until I found here a few years back. Only time that was lower was when the Astros left Fox Southwest for Root and my area had no one carrying Root.

    Just watching the Stros locker room party. So great seeing Pressley and Maldanodo trying to drink out of the trophy. Michael Brantley getting some love from Jeremy Pena. Brantley couldn't play this season but you can tell he was an important part of this team. Listening to Mancini talk about how good the culture is here and how he, Cristian Vasquez and Will Smith were made to feel welcome.

    We missed Brantley out there but good that he was around to tell these guys that their approaches were all jacked up. He's a champion.

    Although as this team has shown throughout the post season, you know they would have found a way

    This is the original article:

    https://www.espn.com/mlb/story/_/id/34957984/2022-world-series-how-dusty-baker-astros-beat-phillies

    Most interesting thing I learned from this:

    At the far end, for the final salutation, awaited Baker, the man who was part of the first known high-five in 1977, who delivered one to Álvarez for what proved to be the winning swing.

    Turns out...

    https://www.hi5.team/blog/who-inven...cepted, though,Dodgers headed to the playoffs.

    It is generally accepted, though, that the first real high five was done by Dusty Baker and Glenn Burke of the Los Angeles Dodgers baseball team on October 2, 1977. This is how journalist Jon Mooallem from ESPN tells the story:

    It was a wild, triumphant moment and a good omen as the Dodgers headed to the playoffs. Burke, waiting on deck, thrust his hand enthusiastically over his head to greet his friend at the plate. Baker, not knowing what to do, smacked it. “His hand was up in the air, and he was arching way back,” says Baker, “So I reached up and hit his hand. It seemed like the thing to do.”
