It Has Only Been A Week Since The World Series And I Am Suffering From Post-Baseball Season Depression

It Has Only Been A Week Since The World Series And I Am Suffering From Post-Baseball Season Depression

I miss baseball season and I will probably end up spending the entirety of the offseason just waiting for baseball to start again.


The Boston Red Sox won Game 5 of the World Series last week by a score of 5-1 against the Los Angeles Dodgers concluding their dominant season. With that, the Red Sox claimed their 4th World Series title of this decade and baseball season has come to a rapid close.

Yes, everybody loves postseason baseball but this seasons outcomes were quite predictable. The Red Sox were the most skilled, talented baseball team in 2018 and many baseball fans foresaw them winning the World Series. Why? Because they deserved it.

Even though baseball season officially ended last week, in my opinion, baseball season actually ended with the conclusion of the regular season. As a Mets fan, I knew that my beloved Mets wouldn't be in the postseason. It wasn't their best season, to say the least, yet I find myself lost without being able to watch my team win, or lose (mostly lose).

I still watched almost every game of the MLB postseason, and I cheered on the teams that I thought deserved to win it all. I may have been able to watch baseball being played for most of October but for me, it wasn't the same without the Mets.

I have come to terms with the fact that I suffer from post-baseball season depression. Post baseball season depression is really just another way of saying that I miss baseball season and I will probably end up spending the entirety of the offseason just waiting for baseball to start again.

I have used many different outlets to cope with my severe case of post-baseball season depression. For example, I have started to watch other sports such as hockey, football, and basketball religiously. In addition, I have been spending more time with my friends and more time reading books about baseball and writing different pieces, including articles about baseball.

I have watched a few baseball movies and there are many more for me to watch, thankfully. Keeping up with offseason news and planning both spring training and regular season trips and road trips have also helped me occupy my newly allotted free time during the offseason.

It has only been a week since baseball season officially ended, and a month since the regular season ended. However, if you find yourself missing baseball season as much as I do, or even coming down with a case of post-baseball season depression, be sure to use some of the coping mechanisms I have thus far. You won't regret it! And let the countdown to the 2019 baseball season begin!

7 Lies From F*ckboys That We've All Fallen For At Least Once

They might've had you goin' for a hot second, but you know better now.

There’s no use in even frontin’; we’ve all been there. You know he’s a f*ckboy from the beginning, but you’re interested in pursuing him anyway. Ain't no thang; I fully support you.

You tell yourself you won’t fall for his games or lies because you’ve been through it all so many times before. Yet, time and time again, you find yourself slippin’ for a hot second, wanting to give him the benefit of the doubt until he inevitably disappoints you. Here are the top seven lies you’ve heard from f*ckboys that get you heated every time.

1. You’re the only girl I’m talking to/sleeping with

HAHAHA. OK, first, I don't actually care what (or who) you're doing in your spare time because you're definitely not the only guy I'm seeing either. I'm just asking so I know you're clean, OK? I don't need more stress in my life.

2. I know how to treat girls right

Isn't it super ironic how the WORST f*ckboys are the ones to toss this line?

3. I’ll text you

This statement is so unbelievable that on the off chance that they do actually text you, you basically fall out of your chair in shock.

4. I’m gonna give it to you good

I cry/cringe/die of laughter every time I hear this one because it's always the mediocre ones that throw this line. None of my most memorable hookups have ever said this because their actions clearly speak for them. Mediocre boys, TAKE NOTE.

5. Damn, I wanted to see you though

Well, you were supposed to, but then you clearly had other plans in mind. So the desire wasn’t all that intense, obviously.

6. Yeah, she and I broke up

CLASSIC LIE. CLASSIC. Sure, I believed it the first couple of times, but don’t even try that sh*t with me after I see she’s still blowin’ up your line.

7. *No response for hours after making plans* Damn, sorry I fell asleep

Honestly, how many times are you gonna throw that line when you’re literally viewable on Snap Map. BOY, I see you at someone else’s house. Stop frontin’, there’s no point.

Again, don't ask me why we put up with this sh*t because the mystery remains. I guess in our own sick, twisted ways, we crave the dramatics and thrills that come from their f*ckery. Whatever the reason, though, at least we've got some ~fun~ stories to tell.

The Boston Red Sox Are World Series Champions

The team won the 2018 Series 4-1 against the L.A. Dodgers.


On Sunday, October 28th, 2018, the Boston Red Sox won the World Series for the ninth time! In addition to the 2018 Series, they also won in the years 2013, 2007, 2004, 1918, 1916, 1915, 1912, and 1903.

The game took place in Los Angeles, California's Dodger Stadium, and it was the fifth game of the best-of-seven World Series. The game's final score was 5-1. In addition to the team winning the World Series, left-fielder and first baseman Steve Pearce also won the title of MVP.

Not only have the Red Sox been winning championship games since the early 1900s, but this is also their fourth win in 15 years! During this year's regular season, they won 108 games. So, while it was not exactly a shock that they won the world championship, it feels great nevertheless to the fans of the team.

Speaking of the fans, the city of Boston, Massachusetts is, of course, celebrating wildly. There was a victory parade on the day of Halloween; there is currently a 2018 championship banner hanging outside of Fenway Park. Banners from the previous Series can be found there as well.

Residents of Boston took to the streets and the bars all across the city to celebrate the win on Sunday night. On the other side of the country, those who were lucky enough to see the game in person stayed long after the end of the final inning, screaming and singing in the stands.

This World Series also made MLB history, its third game on October 26th in Los Angeles is now the longest postseason game ever, having lasted 7 hours and 20 minutes, and 18 innings. Unfortunately, for Boston fans, it also happens to be the one game that the Sox lost. Still, it's awesome to be a part of history, and nothing changes the fact that the team ultimately did win the championship title!
