No.

I put a very high value on a good taco.


I wouldn't think a Taco Bell taco is what your looking, but everyone has different tastes. Personally I've never ate at a Taco Bell so rating their food is out of my expertise.

Taco Bell and 'good taco' should never be used in the same paragraph..

What a game tho!!
Makes it a 'best of 5' series now tho, with Astros having home field advantage.
Don't blow it!

I don't think that anyone could deny that last night was one of the best World Series games ever played. 5 home runs hit after the 9th inning. That's the first time that ever happened in any MLB game; not just in the World Series.

Such a big win to be able to split the first 2 on the road 1-1 each makes the series exciting.
Dodgers still favored to win the series in 7 - but Houston has to be the big favorite to win game 3 at home
game 4 not so much, but first things 1st.
game 3 on Friday
Astros 5
Dodgers 4

I was close... Astros 5 Dodgers 3

I expected Dodgers to pitch Clayton Kershaw in games 1, 4 and 7 but they are going with Lefty Alex Wood in game 4
Alex Wood 16-3 2.72 era in regular season, but 0-1 in post season going only 4 2/3 innings and giving up 3 runs

game 4 prediction
Astros 4
Dodgers 3

Game 4 prediction.
Astros and MinuteMaid come back down to earth.
Dodgers 5
Astros 1
(I hope I'm wrong, but I believe the Dodgers are better than what they've shown in their 2 losses.)

No.

I put a very high value on a good taco.

The nearest Taco Bell is probably 80-100 miles. I don't know if a free taco covers the price of fuel to go get it.

Very, very possible. Throw out the first inning and Dodgers would have won yesterday 3 - 1

If Kershaw were on the mound today with the pressure of thinking he had to win 3 games, I would have said Shutout.
Wood had a great season, but he seems to be coming in almost too rested.
The Dodgers embarrassment of riches may actually end up being their downfall.

Just have to pay for one way worth of fuel Dave. That TacoBell mystery meat will give you enough gas to make it back home for free..

It's not mystery beef, it's Brahma ground extra fine for digestibility. I assumed Astro fans would be all gaga over it.
Just as Mid-westerners go gaga over Anything FREE.

Too many good and authentic corner and street taquerias around here for me to go to Tacohell even for a free one.

I expected lots of offense

Better pitched or cold bats?
Guess I have to go with better than expected pitching.
Wood impressed me with with how well he pitched with such a long lay off. Series back to being tied 2-2
Dodgers 6 Astros 2

Astros blew their opportunity to put the Dodgers in a big hole and win the series.
They'll have their metal tested tonight.

game 5 prediction
Dodgers 3
Astros 1

7-7 now after 5 innings
want to update my prediction to 13-11 .... lol :)
I thought it was over when Dodgers jumped out ahead 3-0 in the top of the first inning!
Who could have seen a game like this coming out of Kershaw vs Keuchel?
