Not a good start...Verlander issues a 4-pitch walk to start the game.

My request is focused on pitching/defense at the moment.

I'm depressed about this shit.

The difference between us and them is they're actually hot and we've been winning in spite of a general team-wide slump.

T1:

Turner...3-0...walks on four pitches
Eaton grounds to 3B...Bregman on the grass because of the shift...and it's past him...Turner to 2B
Rendon...0-2...doubles off the top of the LF wall, Turner scores, Eaton scores...hanging changeup on 0-2
Soto...0-2...1-2...strikes out swinging
Kendrick flies out F9
Cabrera...0-2...1-2...strikes out swinging

But the Nats jump all over...lead 2-0

Last night they got three runs after walking the leadoff hitter and then a shiftfuck single on what should have been a double play.  Tonight, it's two runs.  So far.  So far the shift killing the Astros.

Springer...0-2...strikes out swinging
Altuve doubles to LF
Altuve caught stealing 2-5 on the first pitch...out pretty easily
Brantley singles to CF
Bregman homers to LF, Brantley scores
Gurriel grounds out 5-3

2-2 after one.

His swing and miss on the 95 mph FB looked quick and aggressive.   I was clinging to that thread when he blasted that changeup.

So of course we walk him last night and fall behind 2-0 tonight  before he singles.

Buck doesn’t care enough about baseball to dislike the Astros. He’s just a general scrotum wrinkle.

B3:

Reddick...quickly down 0-2...waves at a pitch in the dirt in the other box
Springer...2-0...swings out of his shoes at a hanging curve, misses it...3-1...pops up a meatball F4
Altuve...works it full...ground to SS...Turner bobbles it, but Altuve jogging...throw in the dirt, and Zimmerman can't pick it...TE6
Brantley singles to RF just over the shift, Altuve to 3B
Bregman grounds into FC on the first pitch, Brantley out 6-4

Astros strand a pair...2-2

How do you characterize Altuve's blunder - stupid, selfish? Given the game situation and the skewed risk-reward ratio, there is no justification for the steal attempt. It's not just that he forfeited the go ahead run for his team, but how many more stress pitches could the Astros have put on Strasburg? Hard to gauge how much damage he caused to his team's chance to win the game.

T4:

Cabrera strikes out swinging
Zimmerman dribbles one out towards the mound, Verlander fields it but falls down and throws the ball into his leg...infield single that traveled about 30 feet
Suzuki flies out F7 to medium LCF as Buck almost ejaculates
Robles pops out F4 on the first pitch

2-2

teams have been known to run on strasbooger.  it didn't work, but it was worth the early shot (if it had been the 9th inning, then quite questionable).  Suzuki doesn't seem like the best catcher either.

What if he makes it. Are you still asking the question? I'm sure in his mind it was worth the risk. Rarely does a game rest on one play and you can't assume that everything that happens following said play happens in the same sequence. That being said he still fucked up for being throw out.

Because the 3,4,5 hitters have been mashing lately?

They are today. I get he wanted to make something happen. Steal 3rd, score on a sac, wild pitch, whatever.  We have been leaving tons of guys on base, so I feel they are due to break out soon. Hinch would probably not have sent him, he should’ve stayed put.

Carlos seems to think the purpose of swinging is to fend off any pitches that might hit him right now because no pitch is too far inside for him to hack at.

B4:

Gurriel...takes a cookie...swings at a pitch that almost hits him...strikes out swinging at a pitch in his eyes
Alvarez singles to RF past the shift
Correa...hacking at slop...grounds out softly 5-3 right over the 3B bag, Alvarez to 2B
Chirinos...0-2...1-2...strikes out swinging

2-2

How do you characterize Altuve's blunder - stupid, selfish? Given the game situation and the skewed risk-reward ratio, there is no justification for the steal attempt. It's not just that he forfeited the go ahead run for his team, but how many more stress pitches could the Astros have put on Strasburg? Hard to gauge how much damage he caused to his team's chance to win the game.
Just being overly aggressive

Is Soto Carlos Gomez's little brother?

His approach in the box is reminiscent of the Jesus’s antics at the lanes.

B5:

Reddick grounds out 3U
Springer hits a screaming missile right at Turner, who closes his eyes and throws his mitt out...ball lands right in it...6-3
Altuve singles hard to LCF
Brantley...1-0...takes one a foot off the plate for strike one...Jeebus that was terrible...1-2...fouling off pitches...2-2...flies out F8

2-2

He was great. You see him set up on one side of the plate and Scherzer would miss so bad he'd have to adjust a couple of feet in a different direction to make the catch.

Are Jim and Mark at tonight's game, too?
I remember all the good times me 'n Miller enjoyed
Up and down the M1 in some luminous yo-yo toy
But the future has to change - and to change I've got to destroy
Oh look out Lennon here I come - land ahoy-hoy-hoy

B6:

Bregman grounds out 6-3
Gurriel...0-2...1-2...2-2...3-2...double down the LF line
Alvarez intentionally walked
Correa misses two cement mixers, pops out F4, infield fly rule in effect
Tucker, pinch hitting for Chirinos, strikes out looking

2-2

Strasburg has to be done. He was looking pretty tired there. Rodney was up, I imagine that he'll get the 7th. And that's fine with me.

This team is fucking putrid right now.

The shitty at bat numbers are in double digits less than 2 games in to the series, and no signs of stopping soon.

Kurt Fucking Suzuki is hitting home runs while our studs foul off 80 mph breaking balls down the middle with 2 on.

It's fucking pathetic.

Nats are just a fucking buzzsaw right now.  They have won 18 out of their last 21 games.

JV struck out Robles on the 2-2 pitch, but the umpire didn’t notice.

For me this on Hinch ---  bat Reddick in 8 hole and hit Chirinos 9th (keep the battery together).  Bad juju to break up RC/JV

reddick is practically an automatic out right now

fudge.  you have a chance and no one can do it.

they get a pitch and bye

Their pitcher guts out 6 innings throwing 114 pitches, they reward him with the lead. JV gets the usual.

Yeah, if anything, Strasburg got screwed on that pitch more than Verlander did.

Granted...

But I do think he would have battled differently - than either RC or KT (he has proven at times to be clutch when needed)
For me, though -- you need to keep Verlander comfortable out there - last inning and all.  Just think subbing your catcher in the bottom of the 6th could come back to haunt us --- and Suzuki hit his pitch (who knows who called it or if RC would have)?

I'm glad we're ignoring that Verlander was awful in the first and gave up a homer to a guy hitting a buck fifty in the playoffs with no homers.

2.  We come back in the 9th in game two and win in 7

Lets fucking hope its the latter....
