    Don't look now, but the Astros might be the next juggernaut to choke in the DS.

    I don't understand it either. You saw when he came out after they lifted Kelly, he looked fine. Plus he looked fine the other day.

    Even if Jansen was hurt, why not bring in ANYONE ELSE from the bullpen, when it was apparent Kelly didn't have it anymore?

    That, plus you hook Kershaw in the 8th after he gives up the leadoff HR.

    And then after Kelly loads 'em up with nobody out, you leave him in? What were they saving the rest of the pen for? 2020?

    Unbelievable. Roberts shit the bed big time.
    Kershaw choked big time like normal in the playoffs but still might have been their best hope.

    As for if he looks suspect you don't know until it's too late when all he does is give up back to back solo shots.

    Kelly looked solid for the first inning and was a completely different pitcher in the next.

    Two road dogs won today hopefully Astros don't blow it tomorrow otherwise I'm afraid the stupid Yankees will just roll on without any challengers.

    Pedro Martinez is dropping so many pearls

    1. Buehler is 97-98 with elite off speed.

    2. Kershaw comes in with 90-91 and a geriatric version of Buehler’s approach . Meatballs


    The stupid Dodgers are supposed to be the wunderkind analytics (which is just publicity). Add to the list of idiotic strategy:

    They announce pregame Kershaw is coming in. Every Nats player hit there iPad for 2 hours preparing. Kershaw is extremely vulnerable.

    Nats tee’d off on him

    Why did the Dodgers do that?

    Score was 3-3 and I swear I heard the announcers say “best team in NL”. Amazing. It was the last time for sure.

    You are probably right, but the baseball gods have a funny way of revealing themselves at the worst time.

    Astros deserve to lose letting it even get to a game 5 with their bought rotation of Verlander, Cole & Greinke.

    Whatever team comes out of this series is my favorite to win the AL. If / when the Astros win tomorrow, I could see them running through the Yankees in 4, max 5 games.

    Buelher had over 110 pitches and was tired. He had to come out.

    The question was who replaces him. Kershaw wasn't the guy. Especially not for more than 1 out. Especially not after giving up a leadoff HR in the 8th.

    Maeda was the guy for the 8th, Jansen for the 9th. Back up Jansen with Kelly if you must, but then back him up too.

    Tonight's decisions were mind-boggling.

    The sobering thought for the Dodgers is that they basically planned to return with this team next year, and now the fans are going to raise their pitchforks if they don't open up the Jew wallets and make an impact move.

    The truth is that Buehler is really the only pitcher right now who is likely to have a strong 2020, especially in the postseason.

    There's also the situation that Kershaw, Jansen, Kelly, and Pollock are all under lucrative multiyear deals right now, and as flexible as the rest of the team's payroll is right now, those guys are going to be a burden.

    The Astros certainly were anemic offensively coming into post season.

    The irony of being beaten by Morton. Can you imagine if he was still in the Astros rotation?

    Cole is the best nevertheless.


    For all the Kershaw bashing I do he seems to be a good & stand up guy. Never hides. He says, “I’ve done this many times before” ... meaning the post season apologies

    Gavin Lux was a chip that might have been used to solve some acknowledged problems.

    You decide what you really want to accomplish. He is not the last talented player to wear a glove. He’s a prospect

    He’s cost control. 2020 is going to be vastly different salary wise. That’s the appeal.

    Trout is pretty good too. No rings either.

    In the big spots he’s been gritty lately in the playoffs. There was an interview he did yesterday that impressed me too. That’s a kid who pitches like he doesn’t care. Who loves the competition. Who embraces the big game. He’s a winner mentally.

    Which leads me to wonder how in gods name can you tell me Kershaw is slated to come off the bench tonight? How can this possibly be a good idea?. If these guys are analytics why are they throwing out the book tonight?

    Bad playoff bullpens has been a Dodger brand for a decade now. It’s like a deliberate self sabotage. God they suck.

    The 1st inning kids (GBCP & Simp) recall we messed around with Kershaw YES “a run will be scored in 1st”. Profitable

    Kershaw's first-inning ERA this year is 6.00.

    — Ken Gurnick (@kengurnick)
    Clayton Kershaw has allowed a first-inning HR in 4 of his last 6 starts.

    — Ken Gurnick (@kengurnick)
    Kershaw has allowed 10 of his 27 HRs in the first inning.

    ..and you wanna be my latex salesman, Friedman?

    I can keep busting you and Kershaw up all day Druff.

    This is gonna be remembered as the Yom Kippur Massacre.

    god bless
    You gotta laugh. I write a lot of nonsense but this was pretty good

    The 1st inning reference was the idea that Kershaw’s initial work in a game is pretty dreadful. Which is the very definition of relief pitching.

    Unbelievable

    Let me say despite being from the Washington DC area Im not a major Nats fan I grew up with the Orioles as my team (talk about a dumpster fire) but I will likely be rooting for them going forward for now.. I feel Druffs pain as the Dodgers continue to be like my favorite Hockey team was for 4 decades the Washington Capitals.. Make the playoffs look unbeatable and then choke like mother fuckers every damn time (until 2018).. Small trivia note in the streak/curse discussion.. Tonight was the first time an MLB team from Washington DC won a series since 1924 Senators (the team which became I believe the Twins in 1960). Going to be interesting in the NLCS.. I dunno we may see the Nats beat St Louis and hell if Tampa knocks out the Astros tomorrow (later today) then its Yankees Rays ALCS and I dont see any other result then the Yankees winning that series (but then again I didnt think Tampa had a chance against what I was sure was the murders row of pitching in Houston with Verlander and Company..). So maybe I should just bite my tongue and wait and see.. Truthfully I hate the Yankees in baseball more then any other team (ever since the 1996 fiasco where my Orioles got screwed out of going to the WS from that little bastard who interfered in Yankee Stadium) with the Penguins in Hockey being a close second and of course goes without saying the Cowgirls being a loyal Redskins fan (speaking of dumpster fire teams ugh.. JFC if there was anyway to force that jackass Snyder to sell the team I think the NFL might actually do it. He has to be the worse owner in history even behind senile insane Al Davis in his last several years)

    I hope they lose too and I agree houston def can beat the yankees but I don't agree that the winner of this series wins the AL.I think the yanks stomp the rays and esp with having home field

    I hate 3 teams the dodgers the cardinals and the yankees but I gotta say at least the yankees fans are fucking legit, diehard fans.Those fuckers are fanatics and from the 1st inning till the 9th going nuts.Unlike a lot of these big market teams fans.

    I hate to admit it but the cubs fans(who back in the day were the best and most loyal) suck big black cock now. The real fans have been priced right the fuck out of wrigley field.I see these fags leaving early and not even on their feet at big moments late in the game.

    Cardinals fans are legit too I just hate that team for obvious reasons

    I was thrilled when I saw Kershaw come into the game figured he would get rocked. Like san said I do like Kershaw he doesnt hide and def has done everything he could to help his team.
    He just doesn't have it anymore and tbh id rather have WB on 110 pitches finish that inning than a fresh Kershaw if I were a dodgers fan

    shoulda just went straight to the chink and left kershaw and kelly on the bench

    The Dodgers’ season is one the line and Roberts goes with Joe Kelley, for 2 innings, when Maeda was on fire and Jansen is available, just unbelievable.
