    Yeah if Gio/Max/Kyle/Quintana all throw 30+ pitches tonight then every outcome is a win for the Dodgers.

    Don't forget about the thigh injury that kept him out a couple months earlier this year

    The feet first slide is becoming a lost art in the game.

    I think that was his point Irish, he was taking a subtle shot at his players while praising the Dodgers.
    I dont know what else he said but this comment is about his team not showing up and he letting them know that the Dodgers did what they had to do to win while his team did not.

    not sure if this was posted elsewhere but its a great article on how humble and great maeda has been out of the pen
    apparently a big surprise to everyone except those of us here that were hoping for it
    wish ryu didn't take so long to get warm and not really thinking avilan is going to be who we want out there either

    Avilan was good this year but, he’s kinda a weird player in that I think he’s only to be used in specific matchups. His bread and butter is that changeup, and it’s helpful to have a lefty who can get righties and lefties out.

    I hope he’s on the roster over Baez but also hope that he’s only needed or used in lower leverage spots. Cingrani should be the guy to face a lefty for one out, Avilan can be used if you need an inning to get a lefty and righty out.

    Anyways, similar to last series, the best hope is that Avilan and Stripling don’t even pitch cause the rest of the Dodgers did their job

    If Avilan is ready, no reason to not put him on the roster (over Stripling or preferably Baez), whose to say they don't need to get a lefty out in the 4th in a big spot, then you still have 2 available.

    Was glad JT went feet 1st when he tried to go home, but was thrown out
    With Seager's elbow already an issue, last thing we need is both the 2 and 3 spot hitters being banged up and scuffling

    Underrated aspect of that play was the throw by Peralta. Pretty sweet peg, especially since he was flat footed.

    Yeah I mean if you can’t beat the corpse of CC Sabathia in an elimination game, you don’t deserve a title.

    If we would've gotten him in 08 we would have won the WS. Stupid Mcbroke

    • There’s a lot of reasons we can look back on why we didn’t win any of these games, but I think the bottom line is they were just a better team,” Diamondbacks reliever Archie Bradley said. “They came out and they beat us. It’s a tough one to swallow. It’ms going to spit with us for a while this offseason.”
    reading between the lines
    dude should really be playing for the giants
