Can't complain, as we probably shouldn't have gotten this far to begin with, considering how we've played the last two series.

Do you even baseball, bro?
Been watching since they were called the Colt .45s - How long have you been watching, young man?

Doesn't change the fact that our offense has sucked in the post-season. We're just lucky the others teams sucked worse.

Are they really throwing 2 starters in game 1????

That's the most patriotic Walgreen's logo I've ever seen.

Nationals pushing a lot of chips in trying to keep a hold on this game...if we can crack Corbin and pull it out, it totally turns the series....

For another $4.50 you can get a cup.

3 runs is nothing for this group. Need a spark somewhere.

I was always against it, but a proper electronic strike zone isn't the worst idea.


Yea I'm past the purity of the game, tradition, etc.

Make it accurate and not subjective


I'm all for it, like you said, for fairness and subjectiveness. The Atlantic league used it this year for a test run for lack of better words. I'll see if I can dig up the article I read about it. Some bugs to work our for sure using it.

ETA article.

Corbin coming in. Nats going all-in on this game. Pretty much means they're either going short rest for Scherzer and Strasburg or they're commiting to a bullpen game, which might just be suicide for them.

Watching them strain their arms for Game 1 gives me a ton of confidence, even if we drop this one.

I probably would at this point. They have to steal a game in Houston and thanks to our lack of clutch and Cole temporarily ****ting his pants, this is their best chance.

There's no way... NO CHANCE... that we come back from 3 runs down.

No chance AT ALL.

At what point do our hitters start using the entire field? We do a good job of taking away half the field without the pitchers help.

Make him wprk Yuli!


Making him work has done absolutely nothing. Getting their brown eye pounded by a wold card team. This offense has been in an eleven game stare of sadness that couldn't have been more poorly timed.


It absolutely has done something. They more we see bullpen guys, the better off we'll be. Rays and Yankees learned that.

If they really do put Corbin and we can score / work him, it could really hurt them if we can also work Strausburg tomorrow. We will see that bad bullpen at some point and we need to get to it early.


What I'm saying is that if you can't manage to score with RISP, as they've done throughout this post season, then you're in trouble when you're down 3 runs with 12 outs left.

You must be a joy to be around at football games too. Just go t-shirt for Bama and the Yankees.

They have done it all post season because their bullpen sucks.

Jury out on if it will work in a 7 game series.

We just have to make them pay for it. Make sure we out enough pitches on him so he's not available for game 2 or game 3.

This actually is a little bit of a gamble by Martinez in this game.

If Strausburg only goes 5 next game, will get interesting for them.

In the regular season, I would have agreed.

Right now, it might as well be 300 (hope they end up proving me wrong, though).
