I think Presley already has been moved to the 7th. Not today because of the 6 run lead though.

My gosh, it's the playoffs and people are going to score on you. The lead is protected and we probably won't have many shutouts throughout the postseason. Also, some of your players are going to have off days, and the other teams, have great players, too.

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

Point noted and why I prefaced with the fact that he was at 100 pitches and clearly we don't want to run him down.

My point was more about in playoff baseball there are no sure things with relievers. Seems like some managers like Roberts have morphed into making 10 moves a game instead of just rolling with the guy on the mound getting outs. Also why I said in hindsight as I didn't think pulling him was all that big of a deal

It's tucker time
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.

Yeah. Somehow lefty Tucker has gotten his chance vs a lot of lefties this year.

Yeah I believe Tucker will play tomorrow due to the lefty.

I don't understand why Hinch wouldn't keep Harris in after so few pitches in 8th

safety guy said:

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.

We won it in 17 and our bullpen was complete trash for most the post season. It's doable with this offense but going to have to throw up a lot of crooked numbers to accomplish that.

Harris/osuna and Presley are sharp this team ain't getting beat

I don't want to hear anymore about Pierzynski's career. Dude treats his announcing gig like a HOF campaign.

Burning him? He can go back to back nights. And he can gets rest on Sunday.

Im not a fan of Osuna here. Its a 4 run lead. Follow the recipe and dont show Osuna. Its all about keeping your best in your pocket and not getting multiple looks.

I love how everyone flipped on Harris from last postseason to this postseason. He's been so so good this year.

Getting to use osuna in a situation that's not super high pressure 1 run type game might be good in long run.

Get him a clean inning in the post season and a little confidence moving forward.

Maybe little blessing in disguise

In Presslys defense he wouldve had a 123 inning had AJ not done an infield shift. Wendle got lucky on a check swing grounder to left field right where Bregs normally plays at 3rd

I questioned why he was still on the team back in March. Relievers are a mixed bag
