We stuck with George at the top for years and much bigger slumps, but 3 bad games and it's over.

Do we know if the plan is to start Verlander on short rest tomorrow?? Or do we throw urquidy and then pull him at the first sign of trouble??

hey guys...know what happened in game 3 of the 2017 ALDS??

we lost 10-3..

another parallel.






however, if we are going to match that series identically, tomorrow is going to be stressful AF for a couple hours.

The outfield production at the plate is abysmal so far. Between Springer, Brantley, Tucker, and Diaz we are getting nothing from them.

2/33 (.061)

Maybe start with Urquidy and then go with JV to finish? We'l have Cole on full rest Thursday if we need it.

wouldnt surprise me if Verlander is ready to go about 3 innings in relief if we have a small lead.

Urquidy starts though.

If you're going to bring JV in at all, you might as well start him...

This has been Miley's most productive outing in 6 weeks, save a game against a dead KC team.

Doesn't matter who we start if we can't score any fkn runs.

We got to sign Cole no matter the cost. Next year this is an average staff at best.

History shows going on short rest isnt a good idea. We used JV out of the bullpen before. We have Cole on full rest ready to go. I would win at all costs tomorrow.

You only bring in JV in a tight game tomorrow.

At all cost? So mortgage the future? No chance of signing Springer, Correa, and selling Greinke at a discount?

Is Smith going to finish this game? Why bring Miley out??

I like starting Urquidy tomorrow. I don't think the Rays have seen him before --- or they have had a limited look at him.

The error was taking Greinke out, IMO. He should have just been left in and gone 7 minimum.

I agree, by why the **** Pull Miley? Just wasting bullpen arms at this point....

Pitching: Urquidy on a short leash

I think urquidy tomorrow, jv if needed (winning or close to close it out).

If urquidy blows it, then start Cole on Thursday with jv in the BP (assuming he didn't end up pitching tomorrow)

Yeah - and Smith has been decent and will be needed tomorrow or in game 5. I guess Hinch has hopes that we score 7 runs.

This was my fear all along when the possibility of playing TB popped up.

Our offense disappears at the Trop. Always has.

this game is a prime example of why pitching is so important in the playoffs

Game 2: We score 3 runs, and win
Game 3: We score 3 runs, and are getting blown out

Hitting is also important

And so is defense

Getting outscored now 13-12 in this series. Yes, we'll still be up 2-1, but really need to get the bats going tomorrow.....
