Those were all good calls.all these hitters make low & outside pitches look easy to hit. on both teams.
shame a bit of a tight zone on Springer v Jansen mattered.
I'll repeat what a lot of others have already said: A-Rod is good on TV.A-Rod also went back to game 2 and pulling Hill early.
If Roberts doesn't go to the pen so much, it's very possible they win one of games 2/5. Morrow (and Jansen?) being burnt out negates the Dodgers bullpen advantage.
Just shows you that there’s no formula for winning. The last few winners have all been built differently, going back to ‘13 Sox to the Giants, Royals, Cubs and now maybe the Astros. Us fans obsess too much over the structure of the team.30 ERs in the postseason for the Astros' bullpen in 16 games, somehow they are one win away from being champions.
I think the top handful of teams have such good young cores and such smart people running things that we're going to see some real heavyweight battles the next few years, as these teams get deeper and deeper around their stud cores already in place.Just shows you that there’s no formula for winning.

I remember a few years ago when groundball pitchers were en vogue, great speed and an awesome BP could overcome a lack of power or a low team OBP. Now the Astros have an otherworldly offense with a terrible ‘pen and they’re 1 game away from winning.
Well, I fell asleep after the top of the ninth, more's the pity. I'll have to see a replay someday.How can you sleep after watching that?
You weren't just whistling Dixie!Back to Kershaw, he's given up at least on HR in each of his 5 post-season starts this season, 8 total.
This ain't over yet.
Unfortunately I am in a hotel room that doesn't have mlbn. Feel so deprived! Thanks for the tip, tho. Maybe mlbn will run it later this winter. And I just figured out I fell asleep during the fifth, when it looked as though the Dodgers were winning. Since I have to have surgery in a few hours I did the right thing.A sped up version is on MLBN now, Altuve just tied it at 7.
I'm one, conked out after midnight after the Dodgers went quietly in the top of the 8th. 6am wake up, old man, had to do it.Its amazing how entertaining it is just reading the game thread here and wondering how many people hit the sack early and bailed
