If JV loses the Cy Young to Cole, was it worth letting him pitch so much those final weeks to pad the stats? Some of those final games really pushed the pitch count.

I'm beginning to think you can either have grand regular season Verlander or post-season god Verlander, but not both.

And by the way, I think Bregman's bull**** antic lit the fire under the Nats' asses tonight.


Same **** in game two.

Already been announced. He is unless he has another flare up.

Watching MLB Network...It made an impression on the Nats.

Bregman is a *****. I'm glad he plays for us, but he's not someone I see myself rooting for if/when he's no longer an astro.

Correa would probably fall in that same boat for me.....

Are there more than about 5 active players at any given time for which this isn't true?

You mean when Astros were fighting for home field advantage? That's when you think JV should have been rested?


Wouldn't have mattered for WS, but likely not there without it in previously.

Agreed. ****** move.

I understand the appeal of the Nats, they are a fun storyline. Bregman, Springer, Altuve, etc are going to have to go get this as a team win tomorrow night.

Put the b.s. ego aside and go do what it takes to win tomorrow night!

I don't really find myself rooting for anyone when they are no longer an Astro. Nolan Ryan is probably the lone exception.

Greinke is in a rough spot tomorrow. If he coughs it up tomorrow he may get run out of town. That was a heavy price we paid and he will get scapegoated for not being a savior. It would be wrong but that will be the sentiment.


If we lose this WS, I doubt Greinke would be the scapegoat
Agreed... if we lose, JV and the bats will take the brunt of it.


He shouldn't be the scapegoat, Greinke is responsible for a W, and JV has 2 Ls

That said, our bipolar offense shares much of the blame in our losses too

Game 7 scenario. Scherzer v. Grienke. Astros went all in for this very moment. Scherzer gets the start. Nats lose, media wont have an excuse to blame Nats losing on Scherzer not getting 2 starts, Grienke pitches 7 innings, wins game, trade of the year pays off in spades. Stros win 6-3.

If Greinke gets the win tomorrow he can go put his hoodie on and play D&D in his moms basement for the rest of his life if he wants to. He will have earned every penny of that contract.

The way this series has gone, it might have been better if we hadn't gotten the home field advantage.

I heard he was sleeping with his bat. So did the chick get the couch for a couple of weeks?

He's one out short of a win for a WS game ... something JV can't get within 500yards of

Verlander is a postseason choke artist.

Altuve had the worst situational at bat I've ever seen in my life. I will use video of that at bat to teach my son exactly how to not approach an at bat.

Pretty much this. I had a bad feeling from the 3rd inning on in this one. Pitch counts were decidedly off. Strasburg had his put out pitches and JV didnt .

Its gonna feel different tomorrow. The introvert crafts his way through 7 and the offense does just enough agamist mad max and their BP to bring home number 2.

LFG.

Martinez just said in post game interview they didn't like the Bregman showboat move...He also said he didn't like Soto doing the same thing...Obviously Bregman got the Nats fired up..

Second time he has Tuved with a runner at third with less than two outs in this series.

Did you forget his starts in the 2017 ALCS? Yes, I get he hasn't been a superstar in the WS but he isn't a postseason choke artist. Also, tonight wasn't his best performance but we've seen way way way worse.

Hit the 15 second rewind after Springer hit because saw some lady my wife knows on the tv.

When we we back live, Brantley was batting
