    Chris Taylor with the walk-off homer for the Dodgers in the wild card game. This Dodgers team typically starts 8 whites, and most of their bench players are white. If you like Caste Football and the sport of baseball, these Dodgers are for you.

    Yes the Dodgers remind me of the Brooklyn Dodgers. It's like being in a time warp seeing them play. They are the best team in baseball in my opinion.

    Dodgers have been very white-friendly for a while. Quite a contrast from 8-9 years ago when they were only starting 2 white position players.

    Braves and Brewers just started. Good pitching matchup with Charlie Morton (ATL) and Corbin Burnes(MIL).

    Watched some of the Giants 4-0 win over the Dodgers last night. The Dodgers had an all-White starting 9 with the exception of Mookie Betts (who is very good). The Giants started 7 out of 9 White players. Both teams have a lot White depth as well. In fact I wouldn’t be surprised if the Giants start 8 of 9 Whites occasionally as Wade Jr is not a lock to play every game.

    This is the CF series to watch. The winner will be the team to root for the rest of the way as well.

    It's great seeing the Dodgers and Giants make the playoffs while the Padres miss out completely.

    Braves take a 2-1 lead with a 3-0 shut out of the Brewers. Ian Anderson gets the win. Former Dodger Joc Pederson hits a 3 run HR. It was Pederson's second HR of the series.
    There were several stars for the Braves on Saturday as well. Austin Riley hit a HR. Freeman 1-3 with an RBI nd Max Fried got the win.

    Freddie Freeman goes yard in the bottom of the eighth to give the Braves a 5-4 lead. Atlanta can close it out if they keep the Brewers from scoring in the ninth.

    Dodgers push Giants to game 5. Seager, Trea Turner, Will Smith, and Bellinger all with two hits and 3 RBI. Smith with his second HR of the series.
    Bryant with the Giants two RBI. Either team will be well represented in NL Championship with HOF catcher Posey leading the way if the Giants win.

    Forgot about the Dodgers young CF star Gavin Lux. He went 2-2 and 2 walks and scored a run.

    That was an epic Homer by Freeman to send the Brew Crew home for the season. Not to mention it was off of Brewers Ace Closer Josh Hader.

    Milwaukee offense fell cold in Playoffs. 6 runs in 4 games is why they're done for the year.

    The deciding NL Game 5 is tonight at 9:07 EST at Oracle Park in San Francisco. I'm pulling for the Dodgers but they have their work cut out for them. They always have a tough time on the road against the Giants. I won't be able watch but it may be just as well. I have disliked the Giants as a Dodgers fan forever but especially during the Barry Bonds era. If the Dodgers don't win my interest in the rest of the playoffs will pretty much be done regardless of how many upsiders the Giants have. They are the Giants for pete's sake! Some of you may not understand that...

    Our Dodgers got it done again! Bring on Atlanta and I hope the Braves start Joc Pederson.

    This made my night. What a game! We were all on the edge of our seats. I have to say that the Giants are a very good team and also caste friendly as well. :)

    Watching Red Sox v Astros. Very strange Red Sox lineup with five White Hispanics: ****’ Hernandez, JD Martinez, Alex Verdugo, Christian Arroyo, and Christian Vazquez; two black Hispanics, Devers and Bogarts; and two Whites, Kyle Schwarber and Hunter Renfroe.

    lol Kik e’ Hernandez first name auto-edited

    So, the Red Sox started 8/10 whites tonight with Schwarber, Renfroe, and Sale on the mound.

    And now the Red Sox just went up 3 -1 in the 2nd. Still early...
