We gave up in the bottom of the 8th then putting in devinski just sealed the deal.

Looks like I'm about to be 0-3 in WS games attended.

Good news, though. I will NOT be here tomorrow night!

I really was not expecting to lose to these guys. It has caused me to hate them more than any other team I've ever known. Effing hate Rendon. Don't care where you're from.


How can you hate Rendon? He's like their version of Altuve, but bigger and not as cute.

In case anyone really wants to beat a dead horse, look at the replay of altuve from last inning and where he was as he crossed the base.

Hint, he's in the same place Turner was and where almost all right handed hitters are on those kind of plays.

Not a review able play so glad they didn't change it, but the umpire **** the bed on that call for sure and bailed the pitcher out for his throw that tailed into the runner.

Here comes the biggest 9th inning Word Series clinching comeback in history.

Greinke should get green light to pitch around guys and do whatever it takes to repeat his last performance, then you have urquindy Cole Harris Smith osuna ...if we are at least even through 4 tomorrow is the key

Devo has sucked since the 2017 World Series

Verlander probably didn't want to throw that many fastballs. But he never got a feel for his curve ball.

It's generally better to throw too many fastball instead of hanging breaking pitches.

Has there ever been a World Series go 7 where the home team didn't win a single game? Probably, I guess. Sure as **** don't want to be the first ones.


Do y'all watch? It's been mentioned like 10x. It's never happened in a 7 game series for 6 games in MLB, NBA, or NHL.

Dude I got kick out of the tv room. And what exactly does that last sentence mean?

Just a complete roll over. See how rendon went opposite field.
Jose says no, with runners on 2nd and 3rd with 1 out still try to pull the ball

I would love see a 6 run ninth, but it looks like the series is going the distance.

Strasburg going for the CG. Maybe we can make it interesting...

Hinch may have said he wasn't thinking about Game 7, but he has certainly managed like was.

Given our offensive performance tonight, I think thinking about game 7 was the right call. You can't burn through all your arms down three.

So how did we crush so many pitches in the first inning then look helpless from then on?



It's due to the batter's continual attempt to pull everything. It certainly makes it easier for opposing pitchers and fielders knowing the odds of Astros hitters going to the opposite field is very low.

Just pathetic approach to hitting by the Astros.




Explain games 3-5 and tell us how many opposite field hits we had.

we traded for grienke for a reason. it's almost serendipidous he starts game 7 of the WS after making the biggest trade in the mlb in 2019.

I think would have been different if Altuve doesn't has the worst AB of the post season and strikes out on 3 pitches.
Yep. Completely changed momentum and was an absolutely inexcusable approach.


Altuve decided to swing before he ever left the dugout. Strasburg knew it. Hell, the entire stadium knew it.

Exactly

I hate Soto and Zimmerman

Rondon is a damn good player and plays it right. Seems like a good dude who's talented as hell.

I though at the begining of this series is we can contain Rondon and Soto we'd be good. In the games we've lost we haven't done that.

So these two guys are responsible for the vast majority of the National's runs

1. Rendon
2. Soto

Not. Rocket. Science.



When Turned & Eaton set the table you can't keep letting more on base.


You got a lot of bases to work with

I'd rather walk in a run then see Rendon clear the bases in that scenario

Greinke walked Soto to load the bases and got the out after that to end the inning

There's a massive drop off in offense after those two guys

He's facing Strasberg remember. That seems to be everyone's excuse. The best pitcher in the history of the game apparently.

Pathetic that Strasburg is gonna throw almost a complete game when we had them on the ropes. JV sucks in October.

Walk in runs. Okay. I've heard enough. Jeff. Hire this guy to replace Hinch.
