    All Star Ross Stripling was left off the Dodgers' post-season roster, in favor of Ryan Madson and his 5.47 ERA/1.41 WHIP

    Stripling had a bad second half, maybe because of a toe injury that put him on the DL at the end of July (maybe never healed). .306/.353/.613 was his slash against post ASG. Can’t blame Dave Roberts.

    Madson included? Maybe the savvy old vet angle.

    Seriously, what kind of deal with the devil has Muncy made? My God, dude has just been tearing the cover off the ball for months.

    A gem for Ryu. Braves have their work cut out for them now, with Kershaw going tomorrow.

    Also, Koufax looks amazing for 82. I'll have some of what he's drinking.

    Every time I see Koufax I think he looks good for 20 years younger than he is.

    Costas and Smoltz kissing Showalter's ass. I just don't understand why.

    I was just thinking, “What this game needs is 15 minutes of Buck Showalter adulation.”

    just checking in. it's 3-0 Dodgers to start the 7th, Machado hit a 2-R HR in the 1st.

    Kershaw had only 60 pitches through 6. 60! that's insane.

    he only has 1 K through 7. maybe just a bunch of weak contact night from Atlanta.

    Roberts going to Jansen when Kershaw is at 85 pitches. OK then.

    Saving him for games when they are playing a true team (World Series, NL looks like the second division of a soccer league, well sort of).

    when it works you look like a genius. But Jansen has been shaky all year and 10 more pitches wouldn't really make a difference.

    that said, it does seem like some of the surprises of the NL are limping to the finish line and the Dodgers are really peaking after a tough regular season. 538 has them as staggering NL favorites right now.

    After going scoreless the first two games, the Braves go 1-2-3 in the 1st on 5 pitches.

    He is, but young guy, making his first playoff start, on the road, looks like he had a bit too much adrenaline. Was overthrowing and lost the strike zone.

    as we saw up close, the Braves bullpen is subpar. a million years left in this game.

    Getting to see two Orioles castoffs today in Miley and Gausman be effective, go NL.

    After battling for NL MVP in 2011 and all the ups and downs since then, interesting that we could see Matt Kemp for the Dodgers and Ryan Braun for the Brewers going against each other in the NLCS.

    Can take Gausman out of Baltimore but can't take the Oriole out of Gausman.

    Huge gamble by Roberts sticking with Buehler and it’s paid off.

    Its really remarkable. Then again, we here know better than most that Roberts has huge stones when it comes to the playoffs...

    I hope all teams that “tolerate” the tomahawk chop lose: the Braves, FSU, and certainly the Kansas City Chiefs.

    Dozier would be nice in place of Kinsler i think.

    He's batted .182 as a Dodger, after .227 with the Twins. He'd be equally inept offensively and worse defensively.

    I've always kind of liked him--and he was insanely good in 2016 and 2017--but man, he's sucked this year.

    I'm not sure dumping the manager and Harper is the way to accomplish this, but a lot of people down here seem to think so... to each their own i guess.

    I feel like Joc Pederson would absolutely out-Roethlisberger big Ben as well as Luke Voit in explaining a joke. The meathead is strong with him.

    I'd guess that Martinez stays. What I can't figure out, however, is where Harper goes.

    I think the Nats are still favorites, but after that - Cubs or Yankees. The money has to go somewhere.
