And THATS why you start Reddick in right field and not Tucker.

Good

I hate Counsel and his asinine method of managing

The RF with the error was Trent Grisham. Called up in August from the San Antonio Missions. 22 y/o

Just shows that no sure thing with relievers (or anything for that matter) in playoff baseball. Hader and a two run lead should be basically a guarantee.

I would say that's more a reason why you keep Jake on the roster as a late game defensive sub.

eh... every player, no matter how amazing they are defensively can potentially make an error like that. Correa game 4 2015, Reddick (ball bouncing out of his glove for a homerun in 2017 ALDS), Springer diving for the ball in game 5

that was just a guy rushing to throw it before he had the ball.

I think you have that backward. Tucker has been just as good or better in his sample size.

And now for the Brewers to hit a solo hr and silence the crowd.

Why is that? Tucker is a better fielder than Josh

Don't use defensive metrics in small samples.

Dang that crowd is nuts. Even being at MMP for game 7 of the ALCS or game 3 of WS, don't think I saw people pouring beer all over everyone.

That RFer needs to be on 72 hour observation. That's going to be rough.

So I basically can't use anything

Again why is Josh exempt from making a mistake just because he's a vet? He's slower than Tucker and has to play further back. He's an average fielder, it's not like we're comparing Tucker to Marisnick

Can't pour it if you drank it all

Springer diving for a ball isn't the same thing and we don't know how Tucker will react under the bright lights. He certainly didn't handle the pressure last year.

Hey, I want Tucker to be Ted, nothing would make me happier but a savvy vet in the playoffs, when your lineup is already stacked, is more valuable. Sorry, it just is.

So how do the Nats construct a starting rotation for the NLDS?

Exactly, I know they're rich in DC, but if I'm paying $12 for a beer, I'm drinking it all. Plus since they stop serving in the 7th, don't typically have any left in the 9th.

Let's see if you change your mind when Reddick continues his .570 OPS.

Strasburg only threw 34 pitches. I still think he goes in game 2 unless he doesn't feel right. Corbin goes game 1 and Max comes back game 3

You'll get your wish because Hinch is ultra conservative but it isn't the right move.

I get that you Josh supporters like his personality and the fact that he's been a Stro for a while but Tucker is the better hitter and defender.

And our lineup is stacked but also bipolar and inconsistent. Tucker's bat would be a huge increase over Josh

Nats are going to have a rough go at it. Stras going game 2 would be two days rest. If he can go Friday then they can get three games from their 1 and 2. Just not a good situation for them now.

If Nats can steal game 1 I could see them starting Sanchez game 2 and saving Stras and Scherzer for games 3 and 4
