    Last week Dustin May said: "I never really got super sore like other guys did, so I was always able to bounce back, come back and throw pretty hard Day 1. I was very blessed with recovery." He threw 55 pitches in 2 innings on Friday.

    Hope he's a lot better than he was in Game 5. He was all over the place.

    Not terribly stoked on May. He didn’t look great on Friday.

    Show up for a few innings please.

    Obviously the decision makers think differently. Hope they're right and our fears are proven wrong.

    I’m hoping (guessing) Friday maybe he was of a different mindset starting the game trying to give a good 5-6 inning performance. He’s looked like a different animal these playoffs when it’s just a 1-2 inning outing. Hopefully he changes his approach, knowing we only need an inning or two and let’s it all out there.

    You had Hershiser going that night.

    They don't make them like that anymore. Or put it this way, they don't allow pitchers to do that anymore.

    Some people only play to win.
    Others play for personal glory.
    While some are happy they made it to the show.

    I would’ve preferred Urias starting honestly.

    Everyone on a short hook though I suppose.

    If May attacks guys and stays out of 3 ball counts he’ll be fine. It seems like every AB is a full count with him it’s frustrating as hell

    With you, brohim.

    I am opting to listen to Steiner & Monday instead of watching the game or just ignoring it. I know many here hate Charlie or find him annoying, but I like the guy (OK, I'm slightly homo), as much for this ...
    [​IMG]
    as calling Dodger games. And Rick Monday, tedious rants aside, will always be this guy ...
    [​IMG]
    and this guy


    So, if this is indeed LA's last game played this season, as I fear, I'd rather hear those two oddballs call it regardless. By next spring, we may well be gone from SoCal, so my only Dodger braodcasts will be as an outsider once again.

    I hope I'm wrong. It sucks being so negative, but that's the reality for me.

    The key to not getting Steiner'd is give yourself at least 3 seconds (4-5 would be better) between the moment you hear the crack of the bat and the point where you reasonably expect to understand what happened/is happening on the play. Disregard anything you hear in between.

    Oh wow, May getting the start. I expect it will be more of an opener situation with Gonsolin and Urias getting the bulk of innings.

    Yes, that is accurate. Steiner makes Jerry Doggett look like Keith Jackson ...

    Seems like a good kid and he's a good pitcher but Dustin May has to be one of the ugliest players i've ever seen lol

    Nobody will ever top this beauty...

    I just don’t get Pollack. Davey won’t take him out and he’s done nothing this series. Fuck, let Kershaw hit.

    at least he won’t give up a home run :laff:
