JV is 0-5 and 5+ era in postseason; would be good to have a reversal of form

Yep, I read his WS record this morning. Not encouraging, but I know he knows them also.

I read Scherzer’s interview about his problem. It is hard for me to imagine he’ll pitch again in this series.
I agree Jim. Now, I would not be shocked to see him on the mound again, but I would be surprised. He has better doctors than I I’m sure, but from someone who suffers from the same issue, and based on what he is saying and the treatments he says he has received, I think it is unlikely he can go and be effective. We’ll see.

I cant imagine that JV doesn't want to shove that record up someone's ass. 

Boom!

Hope so. We need him to dominate.

Verlander pitched well enough to win both starts in 2017.
Oye. Vamos, vamos.

He did. With better run support, he might have. Run support is what concerns me about tomorrow.

I fear the Strasbourg that might show up tonight.

Postseason. Gotta beat elite pitching. So do they.

Good chance he's gonna be nails, but it's the second time they're seeing him in a week and his pitch count is likely to get high fast.

The biggest problem concerning the next game is that I can't watch it.  Not sure if I should grab scores when I can or try to avoid the scores and watch the game when I get home... so anyway, enjoy the game you lucky bastards.

We haven't had an epic game yet...we're due.  Hopefully it turns out like game 5 of 2017.

If I recall, you weren't able to watch game 7 in 2017.

Consequently, just like game 7 in 2017, I will miss the first hour or so.

I consider these good omens.

Me as well.  It will be interesting to see possible adjustments by our hitters, and vice versa for Strasburg.  It became apparent in game two that Strasburg was going to go to his slider for strikes in hitter's counts.  Do our hitters adjust and look for that in the same situations in game 6?  Does Strasburg adjust and throw fastballs in those counts as a counter?  Should be fun to watch.

Saw this on Twitter, fwiw.....

Worth noting about Strasburg: he completely obliterated teams with losing records this year (2.22 ERA), including 0.96 with 49 K in 37.1 IP vs. Miami.
Against .500+: 4.01 ERA, 18 HR in 128 IP.

Verlander was the opposite: 2.92 ERA vs. losing teams, 2.06 ERA vs. .500+, 9/1 K/BB.
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.

He also wasn’t horrible in Game #2.  He got jumped on in the 1st but then shut them down the rest of the way.  The offense had the time to come back, they just never did.

Someone (Matt) recommend a good cigar for me to have if the Astros are fortunate enough to win one of the next two.

Nationals are saying Max Scherzer could pitch in a potential Game 7 as long as his neck will let him.

Specifically Martinez said “he’ll pitch until his neck doesn’t allow him to anymore.” I think it's safe to say he would be starting.

Suzuki would be back as well for a game 7, which means there's no backup catcher tonight for the nats.

This has nothing to do with the World Series, but I have a Padron set aside if anything worth celebrating comes up. I don't remember which one.

I ended up getting a Macanudo and a Punch. In case anything worth celebrating comes up or something.
