Re: 2017 MLB Playoffs, Division Series Edition

Nuts.

This is the kind of inning that can turn around a whole series.

Disappointing loss but they did get the split that they needed.

True. And as they say, "momentum is tomorrow's starting pitcher," so we'll see if Quintana can hang around with Scherzer.

Second-guessing is easy, but I would've tried to squeeze another inning out of Lester. Edwards might've pitched the eighth anyway, so it might not have mattered.

Well this series is over. Thanks Zack Greinke for being an overpriced piece of shit that caused us to bring Ray in the wild card game.

So apparently the HBP on Chisenhall (right before the grand slam) was reviewable and Girardi didn't do anything. Some people in NY calling for Girardi to be fired.

Well, you guys were the one to back up the Brinks truck. If the Dodgers think you're overpaying their Ace and refuse to match your offer, it's a pretty safe bet you offered too much. Still I was truly delighted that they brought in Ray during the WC game and burned him for Game 1. I've always thought that the only pitcher not available for a manager's bullpen in a WC game would be the next night's starter. Lovullo has to take some of the blame here.

I wouldn't say it's over yet. Darvish has been pretty damn shaky lately then you're rolling the dice with Kershaw on the road in the Playoffs, no matter how crazy that statement objectively sounds.

And we were just arguing whether being in the WC game was a significant enough penalty for not winning the division.

Yeah, he seemed to be struggling to defend the decision, taking the blame but also saying he was relying on their video guide. He also argued that calling for the review would've taken his pitcher out of his rhythm, but a successful review would've gotten him out of the inning altogether. I get that it's a 30-second decision and sometimes you make the wrong call, but the point was also made that at that point of the game it becomes less important to save your challenges.

Wow, Tanaka pitched his ass off last night. That was tense. Thank God Judge is a tree. He barely needed to jump to rob that HR.

The Indians/Yanks game was very entertaining.

I was glad both the Yanks and Sox won, it adds some drama to the post season.

So far only one road win this round.

Joe Girardi is a fine manager. Not the best out there but he's consistently gotten the Yankees to outperform expectations. Yes, the non-review was a big blunder but it's not a fireable offense, IMO, and I hope the Yankee brass doesn't cater to the fickle NY fans who were loving the guy last week for getting them through the Wild Card game.

Plus the ultimate question -- if not Girardi, the who? Who's a better name?

Darvish was actually really good in his last 3 starts, giving up only 1 ER over 19 innings while striking out 21.

I'm hoping he can close out the DBacks, but i'm worried. Wasn't Alex Wood still up for Game 4? Last I saw that was what Roberts had said.

Re: 2017 MLB Playoffs, Division Series Edition

Kinda funny to think that the Dodgers, who print money, said "Too rich for our blood!"

I get it, though. Sometimes you have to massively overpay in order to get a deal done. No one thought big FAs would come to Seattle, then Cano got a ridiculous deal but it did the job. And it's actually turned out better than I thought, except for the fact that it kills their payroll and they still haven't made the playoffs.

Clayton Kershaw is the 1st pitcher in Dodgers history to allow 4 HR in a postseason game.
Kershaw really hasn't been right since his return from injury. He tires much quicker and his fastball has been more hittable when it's in the zone. I think his back problems are more serious than he's been letting on the past year.

He's been hanging a few more curves and sliders since his return. I don't think we'll see the dominant Kershaw return this postseason.

Porcello yanked after three. Sale in his second inning of work.

I'll admit, I'm out of it for MLB outside of the O's, but that move to Verlander made no sense. I could understand it for G5 but not G4.

It did feel like a game 5 move, not when you're up 2-1. It kind of feels like he was trying to match the Sale move, which made more sense down 1-2.

It really made no sense. It was 1 out with a guy on first, correct? It's not like the Sox were rallying.
