What's the point in calling it a "bullpen game"?

Why not name a starter and say he's on a very short leash?

I take full responsibility for the loss gentlemen I just got done officiating my football game and I didn't get a chance to watch one second of the game. This one's on me let's beat the hell out of New York tomorrow
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.

If by some miracle they win again tomorrow, their bullpen will be wasted and up against Cole in game 7. We were in that same position last week and it worked out pretty good.

The difference between how some reacted to JVs 4 run first today juxtaposed to how those same posters reacted to Grienke's 1 run first yesterday was interesting lol.

I love this board.

Our BP has been great this post season and we've seen a lot more of their arms the they have of ours. Let's knock um out tomorrow like champs and let our ace rest up for some nationals.

L!F!G!


I think it may be good to throw out Urquidy just because the Yankees haven't seen him and he's got great stuff when he's locked in and relaxed and not getting into walk trouble.

I have a good feeling about our BP vs their BP.

Only guy I don't like our team facing is Chapman with a run deficit of more than 1 run. We probably won't get much traffic on against him but can certainly hit a solo jack

My guess, Peacock starts it out, then they bring in Urquidy in a clean inning to let him be the bulk guy.
Juan Solo

Agreed, probably starting him away from the top of the lineup to build confidence

I agree, he has been there before, you gotta let him fly!

I was surprised they didn't let JV just finish out the 8th so Peacock could start fresh tomorrow

Really want no part of a game 7 for various reasons. Perfect example was tonight. All it takes is a single Un Cole like inning.

I think if he hadn't burned so much energy in the 1st he might have gone back out for the 8th. I think AJ wanted to strike a balance between using someone who wouldn't let the lead grow and not burning arms for tomorrow. BP only threw 8 pitches, so it could have been worse.

Ideal situation would be to get 2 innings from Peacock then 4-5 from Urquidy

I'm really upset about tonight but I still think we take the series. Probably going 7 though.

Tomorrow isn't about beating the Yankees, it's about winning so that Cole can start game 1 and increase our odds of winning the real prize. Don't care about the silver medal when you know you should get gold.

I didn't start drinking until the 4th. Unlike the other games.

Most disappointing about this whole series -
Alvarez being an automatic out
Bregman with RISP

Figure either one of those out and we win easy.

These batting stats are brutal

7 hits from 4 spots in the lineup in 5 games

After thinking about it, every game I've watched at the house we've lost. Good thing I'll be at work these next few nights and not able to watch at home

According to your links, the yankees' flight has the more direct route to houston

I agree with holding Cole for Game 7 on regular rest.

it's the Yankees that have to go all-in for Game 6 not the Astros

Bullpen tomorrow makes perfect sense. Win tomorrow and we have Cole fresh for the WS. Lose tomorrow and we at least have him for game 7.

Pitching him tomorrow on short rest would be reckless.

Hopefully we win tomorrow and it all ends up academic.

After going to Yankee stadium tonight for the first time...their fans are complete children and trash. Hope we bury them tomorrow.

Rat bastage New Yorkers delayed the Astros departure by 43 minutes while the Yankees plane got off on time.

I wonder if the pilots are racing? The Astros' plane has overtaken the Yankees' plane and is now scheduled to land before them lol.

Crazy how Gurriel is 1/20 in the ALCS with no strikeouts. I've been saying he's do but he just can't get anything to fall.
