I’m writing this post on my phone as I watch the Washington Nationals battle the Chicago Cubs for a spot in the National League Championship Series against the Dodgers.
Baseball is a polarizing sport. You either love it or you hate it and there is very rarely an in between.
For those of us that love it, playoff baseball is the best baseball of the season. Whereas during the regular season teams are juggling staying healthy and handling the grind of a 162 game season, the playoffs puts everything under a microscope.
The game becomes an incredible chess game. Every single move is scrutinized and made with a specific outcome in mind. After slogging their way through a 162 games, the players call up that little bit of reserve they have left over.
Playoff baseball is the best baseball.
