Now the playoff balls don't fly and everyone wants the juiced balls back.


I don't really care, but I'm sure people just want consistency. I don't have a problem with that complaint.
I think mostly people are whiners.

That's a home run all year until the playoffs. Then again, so was Judge's second one so I guess it's a wash


Judges second one was a pop out all day.

I wish I could see our hit percentage on a lot of those!

We needed 1 thing out of Chirino and that's to get on base so we can start the next inning with Springer.

Yuli's had to be like 80 - 90% I would think.

Yes because I don't trust our bullpen, minus Harris and Smith

That is the main issue. Just want consistency from the regular season to post season. 2017 was clearly not the same ball in the postseason and this year seems like that may also be the case, although a more pitcher friendly ball rather than the juiced in '17.

If Boone keeps a right in, I think we may see Josh.

Chirinos the kinda batter to get a hit when it doesn't matter

To strike out when we need a sac fly

To get a fly out when we need a hit

I know Smith put up great numbers but in no way do I want to see him out there tossing his slow frisbees at Judge and these other mashers.

If we have to have Buck to get Smoltz, I think I'll take that. I do like Smoltz.

JV did his job. The offense needs to pick him up

I think this is the right call.

Walking Maybin?

Yeah I think it's time to pull JV. Good start, now let's finish it

If it's a righty, do you let Tucker go out there after that last AB or put Josh out there. You make the call, Nuke!

They've done this a bunch this season. They actually lost a complete game one hitter this year.

Before the next inning can someone please tell tucker he's going to see high fastballs and that he doesn't have to swing at all of them?

If he swings at a ball at his eyes I don't care the count. Pull him

I love Evil Will Harris.
