Not asking a guy to start on short rest for the first time in his career. Urquidy was the clear option to me. Save Verlander for a possible game 5 if necessary at a place we dominate.


All a ****ing moot point now
Verlander told Hinch to give him the ball.



Sometimes the manager needs to do what he thinks best, regardless of what his pitcher says. Again all a moot point. The decision was clearly wrong. We now have to hit in a place that we can't hit for ****
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.

Look at all the people come out and make this claim after the fact.


Can't make that claim about all of us.

You're the type that would rather lose and be right. Gfy.


That's the absolute dumbest fkn thing I've ever heard.


If that's the case you don't have much introspection do you?


Haha, I laughed.


Thank God someone was smart enough to get it.

Yeah, I know you don't want to go to game 5....but we would have a game 5 with both JV and Cole available, wouldn't need to risk going to our BP at all.

Clearly JV is a guy that needs consistency in his preparation, and doing things against that has hurt his command.

I also think Urquidy gives the Rays a guy they haven't faced so they wouldn't be as prepared through the lineup

Hinch took an educated risk. He took a man among boys and said Win this thing JV. But JV is in fact human and and old one at that (in MLB terms). The analytics which make this team don't support the decision. It was made on old school gut instinct. In the Wild Card Era (since 1995) through 2018, pitchers starting on three days' rest or less since their last start in the postseason had gone a combined 30-44 with a 4.58 ERA across 120 games.

I however agreed with Hinch, if I would have reviewed the data out there I might of thought otherwise.

The one time I actually want Correa to take the 1st pitch. Amazing.

I'm just impressed he swung at a ball in the zone instead of in the dirt

this is why the "opener" thing is strange.

from the Astros' perspective...it's great to see Castillo leave

Big difference is them barreling pitches and us getting under them. Bregman, Yordan and Carlos all did it.

this is a critical AB for Reddick...to just get on base...and perhaps force the Rays to make another pitching change
