    that's what I'm thinking. Cole and Verlander (although I'm iffy on him) pitching the first 2 is a big advantage for the Astros because they're at home in DH territory and when the lesser pitchers and bullpen take over the next 2-3 games they basically get a free out every 9 batters.

    main thing is not to get into an extra inning game in the middle 3, that can historically prove trouble for AL teams pitching wise
    Getting into the Nats deep bullpen is a winning strategy as beyond Doolittle and Hudson they are trash

    why not just walk him? lmfao 100 mph fastball in the center of the plate to the other team's best player
    Dude is a batting champion. It's like pitching to Tony Gwynn instead of anyone else.

    I did catch that. You'd think he'd be mad; but I guess he's happy to go golfing and be healthier for future paychecks.

    This is a tough loss for the Yankees. They were better off not tying the game. It sucks being on a massive high just to get the chair pulled from under you the next minute.

    It hurts more.
    Yup. Em though and their thug ass fans

    Chapman is pissed at that moment...but sometimes it is natural to laugh at such a negatively absurd situation......a sign of shock and disbelief.

    They keep talking about Springer's playoff HR total, but fail to mention Altuve has the same amount.

    Alvarez is not ready for the moment yet. Stop taking out Brantley. Use Diaz or Tucker as the DH.

    MLB needs to fix the leagues, either go both DH, or no DH. As a lifelong Astros fan, I was very much anti-DH, always thought NL baseball was more pure. However, now that I follow the AL, I must say my stance has changed. The game is better offensively, while pitchers can focus on their main task only. The DH is used in college. IMO, both leagues should finally bring unity to the game and use the DH.

    League wide DH is coming. They will argue it decreases injuries to pitchers and allows more parity since pitchers are so expensive. I also think it is why you are seeing all this stadium netting going up.

    I think NL play is more interesting. Base runners keep me more intrigued than waiting on home runs.

    I know very little about the Nationals, as I really only focus on the AL now. What are their strengths and weaknesses?

    One positive, Grienke is used to batting.

    Great starting pitching. Soto and Rendon are as good of a 1-2 punch as there is. Terrible bullpen. Manager inexperienced.

    They seemed to have caught lightening in a bottle. They are peaking at the right time.

    They're actually a pretty stacked team. Just got off to a slow start, but had the best record in the NL since like July. Bullpen is their weak link. Houston needs to gameplan around working their starters pitch count up to get them out by the 6th. Then they'll feast on that pen.

    Nationals quietly have the 3rd best record in the NL
    Posted on 8/27


    Nats finished the regular season on a 8 game win streak. In late August they were 10 games over .500 and finished 24 games over. So they were one of baseballs best in 2nd Half.

    So dating back to regular season, the Nats are on a 16-2 run

    and think I heard a stat during the NLCS that they were 42 games over .500 since a certain part in the season.. impressive
