Cmon Ryan..... ****
I'm looking for Ray Finkle.... and a clean pair of shorts. I'm just a very big Finkle fan. This is my Graceland, sir.

Completely unacceptable to give up 4 hits in an inning. We shouldn't have had to go to Harris.

Hindsight but this is why even at 100 pitches in the playoffs...

If a guy is getting outs roll with him as long as possible. Jv could toss another 2-3 batters

They have slobbed on the knob of TB Bullpen all game so far. Will they say anything nice about any of our BP arms?

Is now a good time?

Its still a long series and the objective is a WS. You can't blow JV out in a 6-0 game.

I don't understand why this is a question, honestly. I'm trying to stay away from these posts.

A strong and true throw.

They took 3 high fastballs oppo against the shift that inning. That has to be intentional.

Hey, just get the two runs back and crush their souls.

Just sucks they get to see Harris and Press.

Did it against the A's too. Going to have to adjust.

Glad we have a little cushion today to start sorting out which relievers we can lean on and which ones we can't. I think Hinch is gonna ride hot hands like he did in 2017. If Pressly isn't going to get the job done, he can suffer the same fate as Giles in 2017.

Obviously it's too early to give up on Pressly but I think Harris will have the 8th in our next close game.

If the pen can't protect a 6 run lead in the 8th, don't see how they could win the whole thing. Their pen is the shakiest part of the team and if they lose confidence, then that will be tough.
