Good call. Yea, it’s a tough decision in a 3 game series.
I get why so many managers are doing it with the three days off between rounds but I am not convinced it is a good strategy for most teams. The more guys you shuttle in, the more likely one or more of them will blow up as my former crush Gallegos just did, and with the three batter minimum rule now that is even more dangerous. I have been thinking a lot about the NY decisions in game 2 last night specifically, I will write about that later.

a barely HBP and a dribbler Tatis tried to do too much on and it turned into 2 runs.

Padrestown all the way around.

Mookie takes a 85 MPH curve from Woodruff for strike 3 with a runner at first, scoreless in LA through 3.

16 pitchers now in 16 half-innings in this game, holding their opponents to a paltry 17 runs.

Maybe we should have traded Hembree and Workman to these guys instead of Philly.

the HR to a good power hitter, 100mph on the outer corner, is one thing. 3 run lead. the 4 pitch walk is another

So this is only the second time in postseason history 2 teammates each had 2 HRs in same game? Wow.

And the other one? 1932 World Series--Ruth and Gehrig, including Ruth's Called Shot. ON OCTOBER 1.

Mookie is the best. I love watching the dude play baseball because he loves the hell out of playing baseball.

Kershaw is dominating, untouchable. 7 3 0 0 0 11 on just 80 pitches.

MIL hitters are 3 for 24 with 11 Ks, Kershaw has only thrown 20 balls total in those 24 ABs (80/60).
