    In terms of winning it all I supposed but they're not even a stacked team. They caught absolute fire down the stretch and momemtum is everything in sports.

    Not taking a thing from them though. Well deserved.
    like I've been saying, Eli Manning + Tom Coughlin New York Giants.

    Interested to hear from Cole on the matter. This could be a factor on him not coming back. If he cared to pitch tonight he must be lad as .
    Cole: I'm just looking to get paid out there

    One entire ball hit hard off Greinke all game and he gets pulled for it after a walk. SMH, I can't understand pulling a red hot pitcher like that, especially when he had two more innings in him.
    Greinke could have gone nine-full and I would have bet he wouldn't have given up another run. But they should have rode him in the 7th and closed with Cole.

    This has to be the craziest postseason series in sports history. Unreal.

    Can't say I'm surprised by the Nationals winning - I think a lot of people overlooked how great their pitching is. Speaking of pitching, the way Hinch managed his pitchers tonight has to be the dumbest I can remember since Buck Showalter didn't use Zach Britton against Toronto a few years ago. Just total stupidity.

    Ted Lerner is in DAMN good health for a 94 year old. Not even a walking cane. I don't think I've ever seen or heard from a healthier 94 year old tbh.

    Or Dave Roberts with Ryan Madson and Kerchoke . Incidentally, these are two "by the book" managers who take orders from the analytics department. Not going out swinging with Greinke and Cole is mindboggling, but I'm sure the data sheet told him, "We really like Will Harris in this spot."

    Scherzer just said they were the greatest team in 2019.

    The Nationals sucked for half the year.
    They've been the best team in baseball since May 24th. Pretty safe to say that the poor start to the season was a fluke.

    too bad the Deadskins are 1-7 and maybe the worst run NFL franchise in existence.

    It definitely shattered the sports world and made history. No other sports series had all 7 victories by the road team.

    And this was a series between a baseball mid-market in Houston and a team with absolutely zero national appeal in the Nats, and the ratings are on par with last season's NBA Finals featuring the then most popular team in the NBA (Warriors) against Kawhi Leonard. NBA almost always gets their most popular teams and players in the Finals, while the MLB actually has parity.

    Come home, left. Who wants to watch 158-159 chuckfests in today's NBA? Pitch clock is coming soon, limit on relievers coming, so we'll finally get a speedy 80s baseball pace when Gary Carter was your boyhood hero.

    Hinch on taking Greinke out early: "I'm not sure it was early. It was the seventh inning and he was getting up in the 80s. We asked him to do more today than he had done … the entire month of October."
    — Brian T. Smith (@ChronBrianSmith) October 31, 2019

    Hinch on using other relievers instead of Cole: "I wasn't going to pitch him unless we were going to win the World Series and have a lead. He was going to help us win. He was available and I felt it was a game that he was going to come in had we tied it or taken the lead."
    — Brian T. Smith (@ChronBrianSmith) October 31, 2019
    I know it's always easy to criticize from hindsight, and bringing in Harris is analytically sound, but why I don't like just "sticking to the script" in this case is because a leverage situation in a World Series Game 7 is another level of pressure, and Greinke was proving he could handle the pressure the entire game. He was only at 80 pitches, and a man on with one out isn't that big of a jam. Kendrick is also a poor off-speed hitter. But if you're going to make any pitching change, you have to go with your top ace. Gerritt Cole, obviously. Then Hinch further s himself by putting the game in the hands of Osuna, Urquidy, and Joe Smith.

    What gets me is that Hinch benefited from Dave Roberts freaking out and overmanaging a couple years ago and then proceeded to make the exact same mistake.

    Yeah, and there was ever a time for a Madbum moment, it was Gerritt Cole trying to close those last 8 outs. I know Harris was sporting a .90 post-season ERA or whatever, but relievers are always a gamble and can be feast or famine. Greinke was in no way melting down. The best player in the NL did a best player thing. Not a time to panic.
