As other have said, it's typically two days off, bullpen session, another day off.

That's four days of normal rest.

It's a miracle Astros won. Major changes didn't happen in the lineup
How would you change it?

Probably a good thing AJ Hinch is manager.

Here's my thoughts for starting pitching:
G1 Greinke
G2 JV
G3 Cole
G4 Urquidy
G5 Greinke
G6 JV
G7 Cole

This series is going 7 games without a doubt in my mind. But I think the Yankees steal one in Houston (probably Game 2) .
FIFY
I actually like that better, and think that's exactly what happens.

I keep seeing people say JV pitches game 2. But thats on Sunday. so 4 days rest. I wonder if that will be cause for concern.


That's normal. When you have a 5 man rotation during the season, each guy pitches every 5th day, which is 4 days of rest.

Now maybe that's a cause for concern to only get normal rest after pitching on short rest? Idk
thats what I am saying. I get that that would be fine normally. But he just pitched a lot of pitches in the last few days

Not sure if it came through on tv, but MMP exploded when Josh finally got a hit last night.

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

We need Mrs. Verlander to work on Mrs. Cole...they certainly were chummy after the game. Also Mrs Grienke needs to work on Mrs Cole too. That's the key...money only does so much.
What kind of work are you suggesting?

Cole was great tonight and most of the season.

Tampa Bay is no joke. They are very good. They will be a problem for yrs to come. The front office has seemingly taken a very prudent approach and Cash is a very good on field game manager.

The Astros got where they are by great scouting and competent management of same. Tampa looks to be following that model.




This. Tampa is a poor man's Astros.

I'm just ready for this ALCS

With the quality of baseball and how these teams are built this could go down as one the best LCSs in baseball history.

Pitch every 5th or 6th day usually during season
4 days rest is considered full rest pitching on day 5

So...Lets talk ALCS roster

I'm guessing no Miley and no Straw and we add Peacock and Abreu

We couldn't have been a little more secretive with tipping the pitches?

I'd imagine it was something we picked up on the last time we faced him

In hindsight going 5 days in the alds may end up working to our advantage. i really like the pitching order for the alcs with cole pitching game 3 at yankee stadium rather than grienke, then we probably get cole and jv at home for 6 and 7. also, you have to wonder whether that 5 day off between the last game of the season and game 1 of the alds caused the loss of momentum with the offense. as nice as rest can be, it can also have a negative effect. if brantley is out of his mini slump that will make a major difference. also need to figure out the 8 spot. its turned into an automatic out lately.

We'll add pitching for sure. I am good with that. I wouldn't be shocked to see Tucker left off if he's not going to start any games.
