WS: Dodgers v Astros

Recommended Posts

A suspension makes sense, but I think Astros would be OK without him for a game too. This isn't losing a game changer like Altuve, Correa, or Springer. Those would be huge losses. For a game though, you try your luck with either Beltran or Maybin with Gonzalez or Gattis moving over to 1B.

This is bulls***. Gurriel made the jester and comment during this series so he should serve the suspension during this series. Manfred is an idiot.

Definitely some bargaining happened with the MLBPA.

 

Personally, I think a fine would have been a just penalty, but these aren’t the old days. If has to be a suspension, then it should have been just tonight and move on.

 

Anyway, I hope he goes 0-4 tonight, and the Dodgers tie it up.

Really hope this lights a fire in the Dodgers club house to whoop Houston's ass and that Darvish gets a chance to redeem himself in this series. Really impressed with how Darvish handled this.

You could pointed out my misspelling of Darvish. Didn't catch spell check correcting it. In the dictionary now though. :lol:

Pretty impressive work by the Astros pitching coaches with Charlie Morton. He was OK in Piitsburgh but he really has upped his strikeouts too.

With as much momentum as Huston has had since the 8th inning of game 2... they really haven't been dominant. The Dodgers can still turn the tides.

That sucks for Alex Wood. Pitched so well, but leaves trailing. And had he given up a single earlier in the game, he might have been pulled after 5 anyway.

It's impressive how far the Astros have gotten with their closer pitching so bad the entire playoffs. That's why Peacock finished the game yesterday, what can Hinch do?

Why do managers change so much in the postseason? Closers that have never worked more than an inning get 2 innings. I'd think it'd drive the stat geeks in the front office insane if managers are making moves they have no data on.

It's happened for years like when starters are brought in late in important WS games. I'd think you'd want to do what you did during the marathon regular season ALWAYS in the post season for consistency sake.

Any thoughts on tonight's game? This will be the second time the Dodgers will see Keuchel but he will be at home home where he's incredibly tough.

There is some guy named Clayton pitching for the Dodgers too, as we mentioned before, yet another chance to reverse his poor postseason reputation and clinch a spot in the HOF

My post was not about Kershaw though, I think he'll be just fine. I'm wondering how the Dodgers will fair against Keuchel. Usually teams do better against a pitcher when they see him for a second time within a week but Keuchel will be pitching at home where he's tough to beat.

I hear ya, the Dodgers bats may have awaken in the 9th inning last night.

 

I just think Kershaw is the biggest story given everything in his history.

Yep, really hoping the bats woke up last night. We'll find out very soon.

 

Kershaw has been nasty so far and I think the difference is he's healthy and the Dodger pitching depth allows Kershaw to pitch on regular rest.

 

Man, I really hope the Dodgers can get to Keuchel so Kershaw can get 7 solid innings to take some pressure off the Dodger pen.
