    Blue Jays, Marlins, Diamondbacks, Angels..Nationals. All get their 1st WS win post '88 while we wait for our turn again.
    Kasten watches the Nationals do it without him..does he care?

    Eaton finally makes it through a season healthy and turns out to be clutch.

    Blue Jays and Marlins also get their 2nd. Braves and Giants get their firsts in their current city. Red Sox, White Sox, and Cubs all get their firsts in 80+ years. A lot happens in 31 years.

    Cody Bellinger
    Corey Seager
    Clayton Kershaw
    Joe Kelly mismanaged by Dave
    Over the hill Kenley Jansen
    AJ Pollock
    Dave Roberts

    We weren't winning anyways.

    I'm always sad and bitter when anyone wins that isn't us. But I am not fooling myself into thinking if we got through round 1 we would have won.

    2013-2016 I think we win the WS if we get through the NL.

    Not the Cody-Corey Dodgers. No fucking way.

    Trade top prospects and quality pitching depth for Mookie and Lindor.
    Nobody is going to give much for Seager after his down years. Trade him next year with other prospects for Arenado.

    CF: Mookie
    SS: Lindor
    3B: Arenado
    2B: Muncy
    1B: Turner
    RF: Bellinger
    C : Smith
    LF: Joc


    yay!

    Gerrit Cole has two feet on out that door in Houston, wearing a Boras cap after the game, and said he was not an employee of the Houston Astros.

    I already preferred signing Stras over Cole. Shit is a slam dunk now. A Boras cap? Not a part of the team? Loser shit.

    Of course, this means the Dodgers will sign loser Cole..just like they signed loser Pollock, loser Jansen, loser Kershaw, etc. Cole will join LAD, forget how to pitch without Brent Strom, crumble under the monster contract pressure, and off we go into the more of the wild, blue fuckery

    Cole grew up an OLu kid who idolized the 2002 Angels team that won the ring ... Arte will over pay Cole and his elbow will pop in June of 2020 ... book it.

    From what I've read and seen multiple times this postseason, Cole was a Yankee fan growing up in OC. Either way, Halos or Yankees, seems he was clever enough to evade Dodger fandom.

    The Boras Corp hat feels like a statement, that he's going to the highest bidder and I'll put my money on the Yankees winning that one. Even though the smart play would probably be for NYY to grab Stras instead and let Moreno have Cole

    Why is managing in MLB so hard?

    AJ Hinch says he didn't want to put Gerrit Cole in unless the Astros had the lead. WTF? 1) You did have the lead when Greinke left, so...? and 2) After the 8th inning, it would have been impossible for any Astros pitcher to pitch with the lead, so why not send Cole out there for the 9th? I have nothing against Joe Smith and Urquidy, but it seems kinda retarded to have your most dominant pitcher of the postseason, and potential Cy Young winner, sitting in the bullpen during the final innings of your season. WTF were you saving him for at that point? This is Dave Roberts level dumbassery. But I guess Hinch's real job is to convincingly deny cheating allegations. Fuck AJ Hinch, fuck the Astros, and fuck Josh Hader.

    wonder how watching the clutch pitchers such as Strasberg, Cole, Scherzer, Grienke etc. felt for CK sitting at home?
    or the clutch ab's of Soto, Rendon, Kendrick, etc. felt for Seager, Belli and Pollock
    or Kenley watching Hudson
    little davey has to be thinking he could have done that (he couldn't) and you just know he has that stupid what happened look on his face all day today (everyday)
    and the parking and beer prices just went up 5% across the board
    fuck the Dodgers

    My problem is taking Greinke out at all, him having only given up 2 base runners all game. Just let him get out of it. Nats are obviously going to be pressing in that moment, and Greinke has 1,000 solid offerings..just let him do his dance, he's been shutting the Nats down forever.

    I can understand Hinch wanting to give Cole a clean inning, and the guy they brought in for Greinke had been good..basically their Maeda. But as far as the explanation Hinch gave..chalk it up to baseball. That said, Cole's post game act could be an answer as well.." not an employee " while wearing a Boras cap. Cole's lost the benefit of the doubt with me

    He brought in his most effective post season reliever (Harris). It didn't work out. It happens to the best of them (Mariano vs the Dbacks).

    The "clean inning" excuse is what I figured in the moment. And using Osuna in the 8th, he's your closer, I can get that. But not using Cole in the 9th made zero sense.

    That said, they were already down by 2 at that point and their offense didn't do shit in the 9th so who gives a shit.... maybe they do more if they know they only need 2 to tie? But then again, if the opponent isn't tipping their pitches, and you didn't get good cellphone pictures of the opponents game plans, then what are you gonna do?
