A) could this be a mind game from the Nats? And Scherzer will actually pitch tonight?

B) if Joe Ross pitched in relief two nights ago, this is effective a bullpen game for the Nats, no?


Man that would be such bush league

In 64.0 innings he has 57 K's and 33 BB. Yeah, need patience. Hopefully he will consider this more of a relief appearance than a start.

If Scherzer pitches tonight that would be the most Busch league announcement ever. I think no way he pitches tonight and they hope he can go game 7 if needed.

A) Not a chance

B) Yeah this a BP game for them and their pen sucks.

In their minds worst case scenario is they have Strasburg going to force a GM 7 where anything can happen.

I think we'll see what the real likelihood of Scherzer pitching a possible game 7 by whether they use Sanchez tonight or not.

No way it is a mind game. If it's a mind game, I want Soto beaned with the first pitch he sees.

sanchez threw 93 pitches 2 nights ago. he MAY get one inning, and that's stretching it.

Need to be patient at the plate today. Get a look and then light him up. He hasn't pitched in nearly a month and is now starting in the WS
He pitched 2 innings Friday night
One hit...no K's, no BB's, no runs

whoa, Scherezer scratched. Big advantage to the Astros.

No Scherzer means the Astros very likely run away with the game tonight. Ross may have a very good start, but having thrown 2 nights ago, he's very unlikely to be going deep into this game and eventually we'll tag at least one of their relievers.

Not really

It increases our chance of winning but to say it's very likely we run away with it is crazy talk.

It's the WS. The Nats didn't run away with it last night with Urquidy pitching.

That sucks for Mad Max. I really do feel terrible for him. That has to be such a sickening feeling to not be able to be there for your team.

How did that even happen? Was he sore the previous few days or just some fluke thing when he woke up?

pretty bizarre.

Yordan in left field? Seems like there have been a lot of balls hit into that corner.

It's the WS. The Nats didn't run away with it last night with Urquidy pitching.

Urquidy didn't pitch 2 nights ago. Ross will have a hard time going very far into this game.

But let's say he gives them 5 innings like Urquidy did. Then they have to turn it over to a very bad bullpen. They're even saying Sanchez is available despite throwing 93 pitches 2 nights ago. That's desperation and IMO not a winning strategy.

Lastly, I think the Astros' pitching adjustments carry over well for Cole and he has a really good game.
