Hinch has confirmed Alvarez playing the outfield tonight.  Do they still need to do this now that Scherzer’s out?

This makes me nervous. This lineup does much better when they’ve seen somebody a bit and had time to study them.

Far as I know they saw him Friday when he shut them down for 2 innings.

Put me in the nervous camp as well
There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese.

I'm nervous because it's the World Series, but mostly I credit that to a penchant for assuming that what appears to be good fortune will inevitably work out for the other team. No one would choose to face Max Scherzer over Joe Ross.

Scherzer being hurt is a bummer. It's fun to see the teams go toe to toe with their best guys, but introducing an element of chaos in this already wildly unpredictable series is certainly par for the course.

Ross has pitched, but I agree it screws up the video work done today.

Nervous?  Of course I'm nervous.

It's the World Series.

But our guys are adaptable professionals.   They'll be ready.

If I were the Nats, I wouldn't have said anything until it was time to warm up.

About 5 months ago I made a commitment to see Wilco in Austin tonight. Shit, I can’t back out. I’d really rather stay in and watch the game.

There very likely are rules against that.

Holy shit! Max Scherzer cannot pitch today! Ross to start.

This is a BBG trap if I ever saw one.

Exactly. Should they have been happy when Urquidy started last night? They need to hit this guy and get ahead.

Same thing happened to a buddy of mine in Houston last night.  He said the show was great, so I hope the results all around are the same tonight.
You may ask yourself, "How do I work this?"

I guess if they wanted to try and game it, they could’ve scratched him after the warm up, claiming that they wanted to wait to see if he could go.  Probably screws with Ross’ prep though.

Could not be a more beautiful night for Baseball - my 7 y.o. and I are here, hoping it's as entertaining (or at least satisfying) as the last Astros' WS G5.

There very likely are rules against that.

This year there are new rules about submitting lineups and having to send them to the league prior to announcing to the public,  This was done in direct response the Supreme Court effectively legalizing sports gambling everywhere.
The rules of distinction were thrown out with the baseball cap.  It does not lend itself to protocol.  It is found today on youth in homes, classrooms, even in fine restaurants.  Regardless of its other consequences, this is a breach against civility.  A civilized man should avoid this mania.

I would go with defense, but I am not questioning Hinch’s hunches.

and that is why. Homer!
