Bring on the Yanks!

Feel good that they were sitting around getting rusty while we won an exciting series at home.

Hope that momentum carries over into the next series. We need to pound the boards early against their mediocre starters.

So putting Brantley in the 2 hole was genius, right?

Great series win.. time to rest up and go after the yanks .. wish our big guns would be rested on Sat but I guess you have to start somewhere
Yeah it really sucks to have to settle throwing Greinke on full rest in game one.




We are so freaking spoiled.
I love having Cole start G3 in the Bronx.

Plus having JV/Cole at home to close it out makes me feel like if we get back home then we are the favorites.

Fangraphs new projection has us at 65% to win the ALCS.

If we just get 5-6 innings of 3 run ball from ZG on Saturday, I'll feel really good about that.

I think the offense is going to hit at home.

Damn. I should have been drinking tonight.

I'm on an absolute high right now. I need something to take the edge off.

NO MORE GAMES AT THAT CHITHOLE, THE TROP!! Yankees pitching was sharp against the Twins but they don't have the depth of the Rays. Greinke fixes the change/BP pitch and we'll be fine. Remember what happened after we swept the Indians last year. We've got a ton of momentum and confidence. This group is special but it's going to be a knock down, drag out fight!!! I still think we pull it off.

I made it through the first and then had to wet the whistle.

Damn I just remembered that in 2017 we lost all 3 in New York. Just thought I'd point that out.

I think we get them in 6 this time.

Some things were settled in this series....
Our lineup order is fine,
Reddick is our starting right fielder.
Urquindy gets the ball in game 4s.

But good luck figuring out which Osuna or Greinke shows up

Going back to the tipping pitches: ARod, Papi weren't the only ones talking about it. Yahoo posted an article in like the 6th inning with former players, including former Astro Preston Wilson, pointing out on Twitter the Astros found something.

Glasnow just admitted it. Said looking at the video it was obvious.

But again it's not illegal so WGAF. You're fault our benefit.

Cole was also tipping his pitches. Astros batting coach had to correct Cole's mannerisms. Difference is the Rays still couldn't hit his stuff.

ESPN just talked about his tipping. Glove up in set up...fastball. Glove down...curve.

Plesac just broke it down on MLB Network, showing it all came down to the height of his glove when Glasnow came set.

Who cares though? It's perfectly legal and baseball is a chess match.

And I know we're not gonna talk about it but I'm calling it now...Cole stays.

We don't offer him the biggest contract but it's a competitive offer and he rather be here with this team and this staff.

Cole is an Astro next season

So Glasnow did it but folks want to blame us for using it? That's hilarious.

Was Darvish tipping his pitches in game 3 as well as game 7? The Astros ripped him in both games but is there any way the Dodgers wouldn't have figured it out after the first time? Anyone know?
