yeah. hope he can do a CC Sabathia impersonation and go 4 good innings and then turn it over to Scherzer thru 7 and then Madson/Doolittle for 8 and 9.

Hope Dusty keeps the lineup like yesterday. Really grinded Arrieta to a pulp and got him out quickly. Just makes the lineup long and really tough.

I'd rather have the line up the way it is and have Rendon batting 6. It's what the lineup was for most of the year, and it works. Watching yesterday the Nats just worked Arrieta over. 90 pitches in 4 innings. By comparison Hendricks in game 1 had 106 pitches in 7 innings. It was just at bat after great at bat.

lineup for the Nats the same as yesterday. Which I think is a good thing. Think Dusty had no real other choice but to do that.

i disagree. I don't see why you'd want one of your worst hitters batting second. I wouldn't leave it that way for the sake of continuity. Plus, Werth played 70 games. I'd say they're capable of having a lineup where he doesn't bat second.

I'd rather see the team with the most rotation chaos after tonight.

It's hard to say which team is the better matchup for LA. I lean Cubs because I really just hate the idea of facing Scherzer and Strasburg. On the other hand, if Scherzer pitches tonight (unlikely at this point?) and Strasburg having pitched yesterday isn't the worst way to face the Nats. Maybe only have to face each of them once?

Heh. I checked out because I was tired of rehashing the same arguments, and then the Dodgers went into their tailspin and I got a little tense and kind of climbed into a hole for a while. Ready to talk LCS now.

Random thoughts: Kluber hurt? It's kind of crazy how they Indians went down to the Yankees, with Kluber just looking awful. Judge now with 3 4K games, which I think is a post season record.

Re Dodgers, here's something I hadn't realized: Maeda is a righty expert. We've all been thinking he's this good guy to have as depth. A guy who can make a spot start, or go long in relief. But Roberts the other day says he's here to get righties out. Among all MLB pitchers who faced at least 250 rhh...

Pitcher K% vs RHH
Max Scherzer 43.9%
Chris Sale 37.1%
Corey Kluber 36.6%
Kenta Maeda 32.6%

Pitcher K%-BB% vs RHH
Max Scherzer 39.2%
Corey Kluber 33.2%
Chris Sale 32.0%
Kenta Maeda 27.6%

Who knew? Dude is a high leverage righty killer.

At this point I'm just embarrassed for the Nats. This is painful to watch

Did he peace out? You'd think he'd be here every day, gloating and making me want to vomit

A bit. And gloating over regular season greatness is a little too jinx-worthy. Let's see how this post season goes...
