NLCS Dodgers/Braves

Recommended Posts

Runner on third, 1 out, Betts at bat, the defense is in a shift, first base basically wide open...is there some honor system in place where Betts isn't supposed to lay one down the first base line for an easy running scoring push bunt???

Chris Taylor with a 2 out bases loaded double nets the Dodgers 2 runs. It was actually a bloop single to CF that Heredia couldn't scoop on the short hop and let it get by him. How the official scorer gave him a double I'll never know. Heredia was brought in on a double switch.

Also seemed like he was playing way too deep

That's 2 walkoffs in a row for Atlanta.

Roberts brought in his closer...1 pitch later Dodgers lose.

Yep. I should have gone tonight. Tickets were readily available. Maybe i go to the world series just to get a good "what could have been"

It's also kinda stupid that the Braves are rewarded HFA for winning a shitty division over a team that won almost 110 games.

Game On.

Braves' fans used to so much heartbreak over the years.

Will 2021, without two major offensive contributors, turn out any differently?

Wonder what the Vegas odds went down to after the Acuna injury?

That may be but I'm looking forward to the White Sox being rewarded HFA after winning their shitty division next season so I'm not complaining.

It is most interesting to see Dave Roberts being called out for using Urias 3 days after a 50 pitch outing.

They look like a team on a mission that is just rolling at the moment.

Dodgers score 4 in the bottom of the 8th to take a 6-5 lead.

Braves almost have to win now with Fried going in Game 4, possibly coming back on short rest for Game 7 (ala Bumgarner in 2014)...

Also, who are the Doders?

I had Bellinger in a bunch of my leagues for his dual position eligibility. Had some injuries, had a terrible year (.542 OPS), but started hitting the final week, and then he came back from an injury the final week and looked pretty good. Then comes the postseason, and he became Cody Bellinger again, 1.159 OPS this series. 

They also have a catcher who, you know, can rake in the postseason (1.092 OPS this post season, vs. SF and Atlanta pitching). Grandal never got a single start in the 2017 World Series for them, Austin Barnes started all seven games (Grandal did go 0 for 3 pinch hitting). Barnes did start every game again over Grandal in 2018, and then all but one when the Dodgers won the World Series in 2020.

Will Smith is their starter now, and he is a stud both offensively and behind the plate. Was drafted 5 years ago by the Dodgers. Wish the Sox could draft and develop catchers like Will Smith. Sox also went with a catcher in the first round that year, 22 picks ahead. Zack Collins. Yep.

Why did Braves skipper not put in a lefty to face Bellinger?  Don't get it.  Two were on, one out, game on the line, leave him in... Boom.

I don't know if that was a bad pitch to Bellinger, elevated 96+ MPH fastball out of the zone?  Dude just reacted and crushed it.

It was a good fastball but Jackson should have gone breaking ball IMO.
