    Kershaw's on 3 days rest is almost normal to him. He's gonna be very available for maybe even multiple innings.

    Elated (in a manly way) with Jansen the past two nights, I'd feel even better if he hadn't face 7-8-9 in both games.

    I wouldn’t start CK in this game 7. He’s gonna be in hero mode again, and we really don’t need that.

    It’s all hands on deck for sure, but I just don’t want CK in this situation.

    if its late in the game and the Dodgers are ahead, I would be ok with Kersh coming in for the save.

    Not a worse possible idea than Kershaw throwing a pitch tomorrow.

    Honestly I probably start Brusdar tomorrow. I’ve liked him as an opener and he seems to be a little weird in high leverage situations late. Start out the game with him and see if he can give you 2. Go to an ok reliever for bottom of lineup, then go to Gonsolin for 3-4. Then see where that takes you and adjust from there based off offense. If you’re desperate go to Julio, if the game is comfortable use another reliever

    Urias has had the most success against Atlanta in this series, I would plan on using him at some point tomorrow.

    This is the year. I really think we’d take care of the Rays. I’m so nervous for tomorrow....please find a way.

    I'm torn.

    Told myself I wouldn't watch beyond game 4 out of disgust for what happened in that game. I still followed the updates on my phone and of course I'm thrilled that we won the next two, especially game 6 against a great pitcher.

    I'm not a particularly supersticious person, and I know logically that nothing I do can possibly have any effect on the outcome of the game. But still, the fact is that we won the last two with me not turning the TV on once. I kind of feel I shouldn't change that tomorrow.

    But I really want to see this game. So I agonize.

    A 32-year drought will do this to a person.

    If he comes in I’m turning it off.

    Fool me 20 times shame on me

    Was so disgusted after Game 4 I watched Game 5 on my laptop with the sound muted. Did the same yesterday afternoon.

    Going to do it again tonight.

    Somehow I'm not missing Joe Buck in the least.

    So in game 2 (Gonsolin vs. Anderson) Gonsolin was basically perfect through 4 and Anderson walked everyone but gave up no hard contact

    I don’t think Gonsolin is starting but he’s prob pitching the most innings, and I hope he continues his attack and shuts them down...getting 5 out of him sets everything else up

    but again and again and again, game will be won or lost if the offense shows up. They have a well rested bullpen. We couldn’t tee off on Anderson. Gonna have to adjust and find a way to have good at bats with good contact every single damn time cause there’s no mora victories with high pitch counts or hard hit balls. Today they need hits and hits and walks then hits
