We have good players. We also have smart players. Our team is baseball intelligent. Wins you games like this. Altuve hit and run the springer waving Altuve to take third while he gets in a run down. That was HUGE.

Hinch said due to the break, he got to go over that scenario with them right before it happened. It was executed nicely. More props for Hinch!

Wonder what the TV networks will do for Game 5 if we get rained out tomorrow? No more NLCS games to broadcast. Will they make them play at night and then fly to Houston for a Saturday game?

Didn't get selected for the WS ticket lotto. If any of you were selected but decide not to go, please send me a PM. I'll front the cash and pay for your time to sit in the queue.

Supposedly if we are rained out there will be 4 straight games with no day off for travel.

I didn't drink all game and decided I needed a big ole swig of whiskey before the Correa walk-off. Guess I'll be an alcoholic by the end of this run
no drinks were working for me so I went sober and had to resort to chronic dipping. T&P for my mouth.


Ok, so two games now with no drinks. I'm very conflicted.

I said it a few days ago and I'll say it again, this had a Red Sox 2018 feel to it. They were completely dejected after losing game 1 to us and then reeled off 4 in a row. We're halfway there boys and girls.

I wanna steal one at Yankee Stadium am I being greedy? Which game shapes up as our best chance? How does a rainout change things?

Looks like Verlander will throw game 5.
Only way Verlander pitches Game 5 is if there's a rainout tomorrow.

I mean, we are the best team in baseball. Any game is within reason. With a rainout, we see JV in game 5. That's probably the best bet.

So if there's a game tomorrow will it be Urquiddy vs who? I don't think Happ could start for the Yankees. Who else do they have?

they mentioned a bullpen game as well...not sure who the "starter "would be

Urquidy or Peacock, right? Hopefully we don't have to find out.

Nevermind. Y'all are talking Yanks. I would guess Happ.

I'm hoping we finish it in 5. My brother and I are going to ole miss this weekend and I'd rather not have two heart attacks in one night

We have a better shot at it with Greinke & JV than bullpen & Greinke.

If not then Saturday will likely be a tired Yankee bullpen vs a not so tired Astro bullpen.

If it goes 7 then we'll the best pitcher on the planet going.

Was at the A&M small animal hospital with my beagle for most of the game today, watching it on a TV. When Reddick went yardball, this senior citizen there with his St. Bernard said, "If Steinbrenner was still alive, he would cut Severino's ass right now."

In my opinion Boone is out of sorts because I think he saw what the Ray's did to us and how successful their approach was and he all of a sudden tried to copy it

Only thing is that's what the Rays do and they're good at it. That's not what the Yankees do.

He's completely out of his element and it shows.


Also it's a different dynamic in a 7 game series vs 5.

I wouldn't be surprised if our offense starts going thermonuclear

I'm not exactly worried about the offense. They have been putting pressure on people outside of the Tanaka game with guys on base. If we continue to do that, we WILL find a hit with RISP. Also, just keep getting guys on in front of Yuli. He's been hitting the ball hard and he's going to find some grass or seats very soon.

Even with the day off tomorrow, if in fact is a day off, that bullpen had to be used a lot again today. If we do indeed face Tanaka - we've got to be better at being patient and fouling off pitches on the edges. We do that, we can run his PC up and get to that bullpen anyway.

This offense doesn't look scared of that bullpen at all. I will say I believe all of the hitters look very confident at the plate, save maybe Alvarez.

Looks like wangus caught the ban a few pages back. Thank you for your service, sir.

A week off might not do them any favors.

going back to Sanchez...the MLB network analysts were criticizing him for calling for sliders early in the game.

especially during Reddick's at-bat...when it was obvious he couldn't catch up to Severino's fastball. Did him a favor by switching to the slider

I was afraid that would happen. That's the pic I got busted for two years ago in game 5. Well one of them anyway.

I wouldn't worry about the Nationals' pitching just yet.

after watching the Astros' 3-game series in St. Louis earlier this year, I was shocked STL made it to the NLCS. The Cardinals looked very average.

and other than Goldschmidt and perhaps Molina, their batting order is bunch of no-names and journeymen
