This offense can still get back into it. They need to have some patient ABs.

Hit the ball hard.

I still like my buddy's comment about the back spasms. Back spasms = fake injury to avoid play. This coming from a college pitcher. Plus with all the talk about Scherzer being done for the season, if he plays game 7 then we know they saved him for the end.

I've had back spasms so bad that I couldn't even get out of bed. Saying it's a fake injury is pretty ignorant.

The day after injections is tough, but after that you feel right as rain.

Verlander probably going to finish the night 0-6 with an ERA near 6 in 7 WS starts.


This is an unbelievable stat for one of the all time greats.


To be somewhat fair to JV.... He wasn't getting any calls on the edge at all, whereas Strasburg has been getting a wide zone all effing night.

He overworks himself during the season and he hasn't played for a coach with big enough balls to put a limit on him


Good job figuring it out. Make sure you send this tidbit to Hinch for next season.

"The job Strasburg did against Altuve"... are you kidding me? One of the worst ABs of Tuve's career Given the circumstances. Wasn't even good pitching after pitch 1. He was flailing wildly

Scherzer may not have been 100%, but the Nats are playing poker. Why would they tell the Astros anything about the health of Scherzer?
Yeah, they were definitely trying to play head games there. There was no way Sherzer was coming in even if healthy. Who is going to start tomorrow if he pitches tonight?

I think Scherzer is just throwing to throw. I don't think he comes in with a three run lead. Would you pull Strasburg? Astros can't hit him with a tennis racket.

And I'm guessing that every National except Strasburg is available for Game 7.

Base hit, double, HR. Tie ballgame. Reddick walk off in the 9th.

I think for whatever reason his approach changes.

He doesn't have that killer instinct to finish guys and it results in his pitch count going up.

We need to get one runner on base this inning so that we can get George up next inning with two on to tie it. Or, we can just load'em up for the walk-off granny.

Trade Verlander and Correa. Move Bregman to shortstop and sign Rendon and Cole.

Flagged for trolling.


Just p*ssed...that's all. Still hopeful, but so frustrated.

I think they were trying to pretend he is pitching tomorrow to get in peoples head, make everyone feel like we have to win tonight and get tight.

Maybe it worked, we were bashing in the first the swinging at only poop after that

George was the third out in the 7th. We'll need several on base this inning to get him one more shot.

He's literally Kershaw but slightly more successful in the LCS
it's not fatigue. Maybe a little bit, but it's clearly mostly mental.

It's silly to think that he's been great right up until the World Series and then somehow he just magically and coincidentally hits the wall entirely because of fatigue.

Trade Verlander and keep Correa. Keep Bregman at third and sign Rendon and Cole.
Fixed..then Convert Rendon to RF
Trade Verlander, Altuve, Springer, Correa and Bregman for Trout, Bryce Harper, and Yelich. Get a DNA swab on Nolan Ryan and take it to Kamino to clone him. Promote Kyle Tucker to player-manager. Dump Josh Reddick's body in the Gulf of MExico. SIgn JOhnny Manziel to start on opening day.

They were shelling this guy in the first. Now he will pitch a complete game. Unreal. Gotta be the best.
