I'm hoping the bullpen game means Tucker back in.

Anything that doesn't result in a loss with a Greinke start is considered lagniappe in my book

I'm not relying on him in any way when I have 2 guys that can "will" me a win

I honestly don't care where Greinke pitches. I don't think it matters

Greinke


Forget his name. He'd thrive in Miami. Low pressure in October.

I'm holding out hope on Greinke. He had a 2.38 era in 6 starts in playoffs when with the Dodgers. I know he struggled in Arizona and yesterday, but it's not like he has never performed during this time of year.

Also, 12.2 innings of 3 ER vs Yankees this year for him gives me hope. Rays got him both times this year, so not all hope is lost yet.

Bad starts happen.

Gerrit Cole even had one last year against Boston.

So did Verlander.

It's not like they have another option vs. the Yankees if they get there. Greinke is going to get two starts if the series goes the distance.

Let's say JV throws 90+ pitches on 3 days rest in a win


Today, JV will get 5 innings or 70 pitches... whichever comes first.


The bullpen will simply have to do its damn job today.

It's pretty damn perfect.


1 PM wasn't terrible either... I work remotely so I took the laptop to the bar (don't get MLB network) and watched while I worked and had a few pints.


The games starting at 9 or 10 PM... that's rough with a toddler in the house.

And the offense.

We need to take one 10-3.

Verlander has the hammer. They want to kill Astros baw but so they have the sack? Not looking great


I see Astrosbaw is taking a lot of heat for laying out the inside info regarding hunch. They don’t want the truth. Ludlow and hunch have had friction for quite a while

Offense and bullpen. Offense can't keep shitting on run scoring opportunities.

If Brantley and Springer don't start hitting, we're not winning anything. It's that simple. If they do, we'll be fine.
