Can't wait to get to the park. Given playoff game time, this will end at 12AM, and I'll probably get home between 1-2. Might be better off if this one lasts 18 innings, in which case I'll leave the park tomorrow morning and go straight back to the office.

Still no announcement re the Nats' starter, but Gonzalez has to be most likely, right?
   3. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 12, 2017 at 01:23 PM (#5551275)
MLB has to require them to announce their starter by a certain time, no? Sounds like the Cubs are assuming/prepping for Gonzalez.
   4. Zonk Tormundbane Posted: October 12, 2017 at 01:27 PM (#5551280)
I hope both the Cubs and I have a better chatter than yesterday, but I would gladly settle for just the former.

Watching the Indians get bounced last night just made more appreciate last year even more. I'm obviously pulling for the Cubs to extend their season tonight, but them winning it all last year has made this season feel like it's being played with house money.

Yesterday's game would have infuriated me a year ago. It was tough to watch, but aside from a couple of foot stomps, I felt OK.

And then, a few hours later, I watched a team that was on the cusp of finally winning it all last year and seemed destined to give it another shot this year. But baseball is a funny game that doesn't always follow a script.

tl;dr flags fly forever

Is every single beat reporter flying to DC right now? It's completely quiet. I want to know who's pitching NOW dammit.

I'm in the same mindset. If this was last year, I'd be a wreck going into a Game 5 like this. Today, I'm OK. I'll go about my day up until game time, and then watch and (hopefully) enjoy the game. But it won't have the stomach clenching, soul crushing, live and die with every pitch feeling that I had last year. Which is probably a good thing.

I do feel bad for the Indians. That was a really good team, and it did look like they were poised to win it all (or at the very least make it back to the Series).

Exactly. I felt infinitely worse after Game 3 of the 2016 NLDS and Game 2 of the NLCS, to say nothing of Game 1, 3, and 4 of the World Series.

Today, I'll be excited if the Cubs can advance, but no inanimate objects within reach of me are going to be in danger if they lose.
   12. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 12, 2017 at 03:02 PM (#5551407)
What's the weather like in DC?

I think the Cubs can jump on Gio early; I hope they do.

HOW WILL DUSTY FIND A WAY TO GET JASON WERTH IN THE ORDER TODAY?
   14. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 12, 2017 at 03:09 PM (#5551415)
I'll answer my own question:
First pitch: Light drizzle possible, light breeze, lower 60s.

9th inning: Cloudy, winds calming, near 60.

Chance of rain: 30 percent

Chance of delay: 5 percent

Chance of postponement: 1 percent

   15. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: October 12, 2017 at 03:09 PM (#5551416)
Nasty day in Washington, but only a 10%-15% chance of rain.
   16. Stevis Posted: October 12, 2017 at 03:32 PM (#5551438)
It's been kind of spitting drizzle much of the day. At least when I was out at lunch, they would totally play through that--after three hours of it it would be pretty miserable in the stands though.
   17. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 12, 2017 at 03:41 PM (#5551449)
Chelsea Janes‏ @chelsea_janes 4m4 minutes ago

Dusty will stick with Werth in Game 5. Turner SS, Werth LF, Harper RF, Zimmerman 1B, Murphy 2B, Rendon 3B, Wieters C, Taylor CF, Gonzalez P
   18. TomH Posted: October 12, 2017 at 03:42 PM (#5551450)
If this game were OTP or Strat-O-Matic, I would start Roark, pull him after X<9 batters when a lefty is due up, and use Gio for a while. The Cubs platoon, and Gio could do some damage vs LH batters who Joe wouldn't wish to pull early given the RHP that would follow Gio.

Or you could start Gio, go to Roark, and later swap to LHR if the Cubs put Schwarbs in to PH.

But this aint OTP or SOM, and Dusty sure ain't me.

Cause if it were me, I woulda put Lind in for Werth a lonnng time ago! How can you keep putting a guy who is so obviously TOAST in the middle of your not-hitting-at-all lineup against RHP, while Lind ROTS on the bench?
   19. LA Podcasting Hombre of Anaheim Posted: October 12, 2017 at 03:46 PM (#5551458)
In Strat-O tournament play, you can't remove a starter until he's gone five innings, given up four runs, or gets injured.

Just saying. I'll put my dork hat away now.
   20. Kiko Sakata Posted: October 12, 2017 at 03:48 PM (#5551460)

Basically, it sounds like yesterday's Chicago weather traveled with the teams. Which was miserable weather to play a baseball game in, but not bad enough to justify postponing the game.
   21. Barry`s_Lazy_Boy Posted: October 12, 2017 at 03:58 PM (#5551467)
Those SOM tournament rules suck.
   22. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 12, 2017 at 04:00 PM (#5551469)

I think the Nats should do something like this, too. I'd probably start Roark though, then Gio, then Max (or if Max is pitching regardless, start him and then go the L/R thing).

The Cubs do platoon, but having a few switch hitters (Zobrist/Happ) helps, as well as some lefties than hit lefties ok (Rizzo/Jay).

It's just not really in Dusty's nature to do that though.
   23. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 12, 2017 at 04:02 PM (#5551472)
Cubs lineup: Jay(LF)/Bryant/Rizzo/Contreras/Almora/Russell/Heyward/Baez.

So Joe isn't going full platoon by starting Jay/Heyward. Schwarber probably hits for Almora vs. Scherzer (maybe Roark, but there's defensive considerations there). I agree with Heyward starting for defense purposes (Zobrist is pretty useless against lefties this year anyway).

I know it's just a sample size issue, but I can't get over how Jay has been worse this year hitting leadoff than in any other situation.

If the big bats hit though, most of my concerns are lessened.
   24. Kiko Sakata Posted: October 12, 2017 at 04:02 PM (#5551473)
Cubs lineup, per Carrie Muskat on Twitter:

Jay LF Bryant 3B Rizzo 1B Contreras C Almora CF Russell SS Heyward RF Baez 2B Hendricks P
   25. Kiko Sakata Posted: October 12, 2017 at 04:05 PM (#5551478)
I'm pretty comfortable with that lineup. I might have tried to get Happ into the lineup a little more - maybe in place of Jay. But no big complaints there. Honestly, I find myself having very little to complain about regarding Maddon in this series so far (in my opinion, his bullpen moves that blew up in Games 2 and 4 are mostly objectionable in hindsight knowing what happened) - which probably ties into the earlier discussion of how last year relieved so much pressure.
   26. TomH Posted: October 12, 2017 at 04:13 PM (#5551490)
Cubs-Nats overall batting average for this series: .144.

If that ain't a record for a playoff series, someone please show me what the record is.
   27. TomH Posted: October 12, 2017 at 04:15 PM (#5551493)
overall MLB post-season batting avg to date: .245. Obviously higher if you use "all other teams besides these two"
   28. Kiko Sakata Posted: October 12, 2017 at 04:19 PM (#5551501)
Cubs-Nats overall batting average for this series: .144.


In the 1966 World Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers were shut out three times in four games and scored two total runs. They were only slightly worse than that: .142 - and the Orioles - who won Games 3 and 4 both 1-0 hit .200. A combined .144 seems like it should be impossible. I feel like the Cubs are bound to break out and score 8-10 runs any day now. But I felt that way yesterday, and we know how that worked out. Hopefully tonight's the night.
   29. Spahn Insane, stimulus-funded BurlyMan™ Posted: October 12, 2017 at 04:51 PM (#5551532)
This feast/famine thing for the Cub offense in the postseason isn't news, of course--last year both of the Cubs' LCS losses and two of their three WS losses were by shutout. The Cubs scored 7 more runs (17) in games 6 and 7 of the WS than they scored in games 1-5.

Dusty said he considered sitting Werth, but he's "been a big-game player for long time. Not trying to be sentimental. Trying to be realist."

Honestly, the Nats are overdue for a breakout too. It would be the most "yup, that's baseball for ya" thing if this game ended 12-11.

   37. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: October 12, 2017 at 06:00 PM (#5551585)
The Cubs don't really have any good options for lead-off, so I can't be upset about Jay in that slot. Zobrist has gotten a couple of hits in this series, but he's not had at-bats that really shout "quality lead-off guy." I'm not sure who else you'd even entertain putting in that spot if not Zobrist or Jay if Almora isn't playing.
   38. The Yankee Clapper Posted: October 12, 2017 at 06:02 PM (#5551589)
I'm about 10 miles south of the ballpark, and it's cloudy, in the high 50s, with just a hint of mist. Not supposed to rain anymore, especially after 8:00 PM. Eminently playable conditions, especially for those who don't like to sweat too much. Should be tougher on the fans than the players tonight.

Patrick Mooney‏ @MooneyNBCS 3m3 minutes ago

Maddon says he won't have quick hook w/Hendricks: "You got to give Kyle a little more leeway tonight based on the cachet that he's built."
   40. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: October 12, 2017 at 06:26 PM (#5551595)
In the 1966 World Series, the Los Angeles Dodgers were shut out three times in four games and scored two total runs.

The first game that year was played in L.A., and the Orioles' first four batters in the top of the first plated more runs than the Dodgers scored in the entire World Series. Somehow I don't think that record will ever be broken.

Tell us, Dusty, does Werth's coat of fur also make him better adapted to playing in cool and misty weather?
   42. Bote Man Posted: October 12, 2017 at 06:57 PM (#5551607)
Dusty will pull Werth after he takes the field for the 5th inning to a thunderous applause, inserting Lind in his place. PRINT IT!

Against the LHP I'd swap Armora's and Jay's lineup spots, but whatever.

I was sad to see the Tribe lose, but now I can feel less guilt about rooting for the Dodgers, especially if they run into New York in the WS.

Because they're down by 15 and it's his last appearance as a Nat? Or you thinking Russ Ortiz situation?
   46. Bote Man Posted: October 12, 2017 at 07:44 PM (#5551632)
Dusty loves him some veterans so he starts Werth, but wants to give him his moment of glory in the post-season by sending him out for his last inning and yanking him in front of the home crowd. High drama. Lind improves both defense and offense in one motion. During pre-game interviews this afternoon Dusty said, "I've been Jayson. I'd throw a fit if I weren't playing today."

The weather this evening in our Nation's Crapital is similar to last night in Chicago. Wind blowing across from RF to LF so any pop-up will be an adventure.

I really think Gio will lock it down to start, go 2 innings, then Tanner Roark, then Max, then some combination of the Good Guys from the bullpen. Probably another low-ish scoring game. I'm not a betting man so that's as much as I'll say.
   47. Bote Man Posted: October 12, 2017 at 07:46 PM (#5551633)

Cubs starting pitchers have a 0.40 ERA.. they have allowed 8 hits (2 each game) and 3 runs (1 earned) in 22.2 innings.

My computer for tonight is game 6 of the world series last year. Tomlin's second start of the series against the Cubs didn't go as well as the first.

Or the nlcs clincher against Kershaw if you want a game Hendricks started.

The last time a D.C. team in one of the four major pro sports has been among the final four teams standing in its league was 1998, when the Capitals advanced to the franchise’s only Stanley Cup final. In the 19 years since those Capitals were swept by the Red Wings, there have been 74 champions crowned in MLB, the NFL, the NBA and the NHL. There have also been 74 runners-up and 148 losing semifinalists. None of those 222 teams hailed from D.C.
- quote from WaPost article in May when the Caps and Wizards lost.

The city deserves better. Go Nats.

That's pretty funny. Tells you a lot about the history of the franchise if "pouring it on heavy" includes bringing out Michael Morse and Edwin Jackson hahaha (though getting Frank Howard involved is super cool and historic).
