Lamet is a stud. Has the same fastball velocity as Dustin May, albeit with less movement. However, his slider is a plus pitch and an out pitch, whereas May's breaking pitches are a work in progress.

Our (3-8) hitters today:

1-16
1 walk
10k

It’s a wonder how we have the no 1 offense w/ so many players hitting around .200

Man, Rios just struck out on a pitch that hit him!!!

That's how nasty Lamet's slider is.

Kershaw couldn’t make it through the 3rd time in the lineup

Roberts chose Baez for a high leverage situation after dude just came off the DL?

Don’t even give him time to get the rust out?

Once again, Dave Roberts makes the wrong pitching decision.

Yeah give a dude time to get the rust out. Let him work a clean inning for his first stint off the DL

In fairness, Baez has gotten a bloop fly ball and a ground ball right to Muncy, who has apparently decided this season that he doesn't want to hit OR field his position properly.

I think trading Pederson n Stripling then keeping them backfired on us.

Both had their worst years.

Yeah I dont think were the best team in mlb anymore...

How many players on our team are currently playing well?

Ever since we got to 30-10, we’re now staring at 3-5 in our last 8

SD Padres are 8-0 in that span (if they win tonight).

So they would have made up 5 games in 8?

That appearance is not on Baez. He made pitches. He gave up a bloop double and got 2 ground balls right to Muncy, neither of which he turned into even a single out.

Muncy has been an absolute disaster this season.

Oh no doubt. It’s just basically whatever move Roberts makes, don’t expect it to work.

Is Lux on the playoff roster this year?

So far he’s an automatic out

(bleep) disaster, at least JT is expected to be activated tmr, should help some but there are major fundamental flaws within the team and too few games left to fix all of it.

I know analytics doesn’t value batting avg but we can’t be having so many players hitting around .200.

It's like the mid-range. Almost every champion has been loaded with guys that also hit for average.

Yeah, I think the batting avg has been devalued too much.

There’s a reason why we struggle with men LOB. There’s a reason why we struggle with clutch hitting.

There’s a reason why Justin Turner delivers in the playoffs year after year but Bellinger and Grandal fail year after year.

Consistently high batting avg does mean that you’re a good hitter.

Official announcement.

No off-days during wild-card round, Division Series and League Championship Series.

Will be played straight through.


World series will start Tue, Oct 20 to Wed, Oct 28

9 days to play 7 games, so sounds like 2 off days in the World Series. I’d imagine the schedule would look like this:

Tue, Oct 20 - Game 1
Wed, Oct 21 - Game 2

Thu, Oct 22 - off day

Fri, Oct 23 - Game 3
Sat, Oct 24 - Game 4
Sun, Oct 25 - Game 5

Mon, Oct 26 - Off day

Tue, Oct 27 - Game 6
Wed, Oct 28 - Game 7

Game 2 tonight. We really need the win tonight. If we win, we have a favorable matchup tomorrow: May vs Paddack.

Paddack’s been off.

But, tonight is a must to give us a chance to win the season series and get the tie breaker tomorrow.

Justin Turner back in the lineup already paying dividends.

At least Betts n Seager have some help tonight with Turner and Pollock.

Muncy got a day off in the most important game of the year now and a righty on the mound.

Things have changed!

—————

Welcome back clutch hitting Turner - 2-2 so far.

Turner’s just a good hitter and that’s why you won’t see him finishing the year batting .220

—————

Out 1-4 guys are locked in tonight. (4-8)

Unfortunately, our (5-9) guys might not be. (0-4, 2k)

—————-

Spoke too soon! Bellinger delivered! (2-0) Dodgers!

We’re making Davies work. Let’s get into that struggling bullpen of theirs.

Pederson is just so bad right now

Turner 3-3.

Wow!!

------------------------

Yeah, I don't think there's any question who our no. 3 pitcher is now. It's Tony Gonsolin!

Gimme your predictions now. Is Roberts going to trust Jansen to close this game out since he's "still our closer"?

I say nope.

-----------------------------

Gonsolin was dealing, only 90 pitches. Roberts takes him out for some reason (just cuz?), now Ferguson is hurt. Let's see how this turns out.

---------------------------------

So far, so good. 8th inning down. Here's the 9th. Who thinks Jansen comes in?

Tatis
Machado
Moreland

in the 9th
