Oy.
   802. Lassus Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:22 PM (#5888373)
Oh dear.

Run Thrust Park.

Go Cardies.
   804. The Yankee Clapper Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:23 PM (#5888375)
Not hearing any tomahawk chops.
   805. cardsfanboy Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:24 PM (#5888376)
Wow... this first inning is something that hasn't been seen at all in this series by either team. I'm still confident Carlos Martinez is going to allow it to become a tie game.
   806. Srul Itza Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:25 PM (#5888378)
praying that their last remaining fully rested starter (Cole) will be able to perform like he did in game 2. Not exactly what anyone was expecting 48 hours ago.



Or like he has the entire season, when he led the league in ERA, or as he did the last half of the season, when he went 11-0, with a 1.79 ERA, 14.7 K/9? And, oh yeah, he is pitching on normal rest.

Dude has been a monster. The real shame for Houston is not saving Verlander for Game 5, so Cole could pitch Game 1 of the ALCS.
   807. rconn23 Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:25 PM (#5888379)
This has to be the worst performance by a home team in a deciding game - at least in recent years, right?
   808. Tin Angel Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:27 PM (#5888381)
I say you let Flaherty work two innings so he's fresh for the NLCS and then you have Carlos Martinez close out the last seven innings.
   809. Srul Itza Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:28 PM (#5888383)
Oh, you are f'ing kidding me! Walking the pitcher with the bases loaded was not enough, you have to wild pitch strike 3/out 3, to let in the 10th run?
   810. Srul Itza Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:29 PM (#5888384)
They are going to need to treat the Braves for PTSD before they come up to bat in the FIRST!
   811. CFBF's Overflowing Pathos Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:30 PM (#5888385)
I hate the playoffs.
   812. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:30 PM (#5888386)
Just checking to see everyone's getting the same game I am. Geez.
   813. Mike A Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:30 PM (#5888387)
Not hearing any tomahawk chops.
Only good thing about this game is they are trying to tone the chop down. Hopefully that continues going forward.

Being an ATL fan continues to be pain. This reminds me of game 7 NLCS 1996 except in reverse. I was at that one, glad I'm not at this one.

Good luck against the Nats/Dodgers, Cards fans.
   814. bunyon Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:30 PM (#5888388)
Just got home. I guess it’s mid first? Did I miss anything?
   815. Tulo's Fishy Mullet (mrams) Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:31 PM (#5888389)
Kind of the opposite of how the 96 NLCS ended between these 2 clubs.
   816. snapper (history's 42nd greatest monster) Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:32 PM (#5888390)
I didn't say starting rotation.** I said roster. And name me a better one.

1998 Yankees, just off the top of my head.
   817. CFBF's Overflowing Pathos Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:33 PM (#5888391)
Ah, late-inning defensive replacements in the first inning.
   818. Mike A Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:34 PM (#5888393)
Wait, a second good thing about this game, no stress! Yah!
   819. Howie Menckel Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:35 PM (#5888394)
don't let anyone tell you the Braves lose in the NLDS every year!

just maybe 2019, plus 2018, 2013, 2010, 2005, 2004, 2003, 2002, and 2000

also the WC game in 2012
the NLCS in 2001, 1998, 1997 (and 1982 and 1969)
and the WS in 1999, 1996, 1992, 1991
hey, they won the WS in 1995, haters!

(sure they had to beat the even more star-crossed Indians to do it but hey)

since 1991, they only missed the playoffs in 2006-09, 2011, 2014-17
   820. CFBF's Overflowing Pathos Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:35 PM (#5888395)
I genuinely admire the TBS guys trying to hype this up as a game still in doubt.
   821. Tom Nawrocki Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:35 PM (#5888396)
If Billy Martin were managing these Cardinals, he'd have just gone out to the mound to scream at Flaherty.
   822. Baldrick Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:35 PM (#5888397)
I'm not usually one to laugh at others' misfortune, but I'll make an exception when it comes to the Atlanta baseball team.
   823. The Yankee Clapper Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:36 PM (#5888398)
Get a 10-run 1st inning lead, and promptly walk the leadoff hitter? Perhaps the Baseball Gods will be irked?
   824. ERROR---Jolly Old St. Nick Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:36 PM (#5888399)
That's got to be a record for most runs in the 1st inning of a postseason game.
   825. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:37 PM (#5888400)
I just turned on the game. I’m not sure I’ve ever been in such disbelief at a score. I legit stared at it for maybe 30 seconds unable to really process what I was seeing.

Insanity. Given how Game 4 went, this has to be absolutely crushing for Atlanta.
   826. bunyon Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:39 PM (#5888402)
Pull Flaherty? For game 1?
   827. CFBF's Overflowing Pathos Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:39 PM (#5888403)

From 1991-2001, the Braves were a good playoff team that happened to struggle in the World Series. They were 6-1 in the LDS and 5-4 in the LCS during that timeframe. They went 1-4 in the World Series, so they became a joke with the sneering set, but the Braves were mostly solid in the postseason for the first 10 years of their run.

Since 2002...well, that's a much more depressing story.
   828. CFBF's Overflowing Pathos Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:41 PM (#5888405)
Also: NOW Freeman decides to hit the damn baseball.
   829. snapper (history's 42nd greatest monster) Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:46 PM (#5888407)
Pull Flaherty? For game 1?

I'd pull him after 3-4 innings if the lead holds, and have him start G2 on Sat. No difference between G1 and G2, he's not pitching 3 games.
   830. cardsfanboy Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:47 PM (#5888408)
I'm wondering if Shildt was even tempted to pull Flaherty before he went out there to start the first.
   831. bunyon Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:49 PM (#5888409)
I would have pulled him at 10-0 without throwing a pitch.
   832. Athletic Supporter is USDA certified lean Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:49 PM (#5888410)
Is this loss? Wow.

I also would have not sent Flaherty out there, but it's hard to blame anyone for, well, starting their starting pitcher. The pot odds are so bad as a manager (if you lose, or even if it's close, you get raked over the coals).
   833. snapper (history's 42nd greatest monster) Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:50 PM (#5888411)
I'm wondering if Shildt was even tempted to pull Flaherty before he went out there to start the first.

Here's the thing, you pull Flaherty too early, and the Braves somehow come back, you get fired.

1998 Yankees, just off the top of my head.


Not really, though obviously until the Astros win the World Series they haven't accomplished what the '98 Yankees did.

But the 2019 Astros beat the 1998 Yanks in team OPS+, team ERA+, in position player total WAR, and pitching WAR.

If you combine the starting lineups, the 2 highest OPS+ numbers are Alvarez and Bregman. The 2 highest ERA+ numbers (by far) are Cole and Verlander.

The Astros led the entire Major Leagues in most strikeouts by their pitchers, and fewest strikeouts by their batters. Let me know if any other team has ever done that.

It's a very close call, but I can't see how anyone would pick any roster over the 2019 Astros, though they still have to win the World Series for it to mean much more than being a better version of the 2001 Mariners.
   835. bunyon Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:52 PM (#5888414)
In my memory, the only series the braves lost that they clearly should have won were the 96 WS, the 97 and 98 LCS. They’ve struggled in the postseason since 2001 is because they’ve been in a weak division. They’ve been even in a few series but often are clearly the inferior team.
   836. bunyon Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:53 PM (#5888415)
832 and 833, sure. But they ain’t coming back.
   837. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:56 PM (#5888416)
832 and 833, sure. But they ain’t coming back.

...but think of how crazy it would be if they did

The Astros lost the season series to the Rays, and are tied with them 2-2 in the ALDS. Let’s check back in a couple of years before over-emphasizing this season’s stats.
   840. bunyon Posted: October 09, 2019 at 05:59 PM (#5888419)
There is no reason to pull him after 5. If you burn him, keep your pen fresh.
   841. bunyon Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:00 PM (#5888420)
838, oh damn. Yeah for sure. I think I’ve blocked that.
   842. Davo Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:00 PM (#5888421)
I should note that no team has ever won a playoff game after scoring 10 runs in the first inning.

So don’t lose hope, Braves fans.
   843. bunyon Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:01 PM (#5888422)
Heh.
   844. Sit down, Sleepy has lots of stats Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:02 PM (#5888423)
Edman has a double and a triple in the second inning. Just a bloop and a blast away from a cycle.

According to mlb.com that’s the most runs ever scored in a first inning, and tied the record for most runs scored in any inning, in postseason history.
   845. Esoteric Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:05 PM (#5888424)
This Cardinals-Braves game is practically a war crime.

I am afraid that the extent to which I am enjoying this atrocity means that terrible things will karmically happen to the Nationals tonight.
   846. Joyful Calculus Instructor Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:08 PM (#5888426)
That's 10 straight playoff series that the Braves have lost, starting with the 2001 NLCS. Nine straight times that they lost their first playoff series (8 NLDS and 1 WC).
   847. snapper (history's 42nd greatest monster) Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:09 PM (#5888427)
But the 2019 Astros beat the 1998 Yanks in team OPS+, team ERA+, in position player total WAR, and pitching WAR.

What does that matter? A lot of Astros had fluky good years, sure. The best rosters mean the best players, not the best stats.

I'd be happy to go against Verlander, Cole, Greinke and Miley with Cone, Pettitte, Wells and El Duque. I don't care what ERA+ say.

We're talking about a team that's struggling to win the ALDS here.
   848. Moses Taylor, aka Hambone Fakenameington Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:12 PM (#5888428)
I still can't get over that the 2nd batter sac bunted and that still happened.
   849. snapper (history's 42nd greatest monster) Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:13 PM (#5888429)
If they tack on two or three more here you gotta pull Flaherty.
   850. cardsfanboy Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:14 PM (#5888431)

Yep... I was thinking the same thing, but you do have to put the caveat best roster is best players at the right time in their career. I would look at a three or five year average centered on the players.

Yes, obviously. The 1928 A's don't get credit for prime Cobb and Speaker.

If we want to play the OPS+/ERA+ game, you probably get right back where you'd think. 1927 Yankees: 127 OPS+/122 ERA+.
   852. snapper (history's 42nd greatest monster) Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:20 PM (#5888433)
OK, PH now.
   853. cardsfanboy Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:22 PM (#5888435)
I thought it was obvious, but then I was afraid someone might pull a great post season team with a past their prime, or not yet ready prime time player, if I didn't say that. (like I was thinking of doing with 2004/2005 Cardinals)
   854. the Hugh Jorgan returns Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:22 PM (#5888436)
let me echo the sentiments above..... holy cr*p!
Now 13-0....
   855. snapper (history's 42nd greatest monster) Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:23 PM (#5888437)
Leaving Flaherty in here is inexplicable conservatism.
   856. salvomania Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:24 PM (#5888438)
why is Flasherty still in there?

There's always rthe risk of injury
   857. Los Angeles El Hombre of Anaheim Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:24 PM (#5888439)
This is really something.

I think this is the first time in my life I've been really happy to see the Cardinals crush some fools.
   858. Athletic Supporter is USDA certified lean Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:26 PM (#5888441)
Leaving Flaherty in here is inexplicable conservatism.


Inexplicable? Old fashioned maybe -- let him go 5 innings to get the win style. But hardly inexplicable.

When is the last time a team's starter was pulled before 5 innings in a winning postseason blowout? Calling this some huge blunder is, well, maybe it is a blunder but it's one that probably 28 other teams would have pulled (god bless you, Rays).
   859. cardsfanboy Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:28 PM (#5888442)
Gotta love that overlay video... this is something that MLB should be using more, NFL knows how to use replay to keep the viewer in the game, this is something that mlb broadcasts can do more of.
   860. Pasta-diving Jeter (jmac66) Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:28 PM (#5888443)
Yes, obviously. The 1928 A's don't get credit for prime Cobb and Speaker.


hell, the 1973 Mets had Seaver and Willie Mays

They need him to pitch G2.
   862. cardsfanboy Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:29 PM (#5888445)
He's at the point now that he's pitched a game and won't be available anyway, let him go his five innings and then pull him. Of course there is the chance he could get hurt, but that is always the case.
   863. cardsfanboy Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:31 PM (#5888446)
at the same time, if he's fine being pulled, then pull him, but if he wants the status of a win, he's deserves that, the guy has had almost no run support this season, let him take advantage of it.
   864. Davo Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:31 PM (#5888447)
Game 6 of the 2001 World Series had a similar debate: the DBacks were up 12-0 after 3 and a lot of people were wondering if they’d pull Randy Johnson so he’d have a chance to pitch in Game 7. But Brenly kept him in for 7 innings anyway.

...of course Randy Johnson was Randy Johnson and he pitched in Game 7 anyway.
   865. snapper (history's 42nd greatest monster) Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:33 PM (#5888448)

Right, but after two innings, he wasn't. You had bases loaded with him up. Perfect opportunity.
   866. cardsfanboy Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:37 PM (#5888449)
This series was shaping up as potentially one of the best five game series of all time, by the end of the first half inning, that has probably been eliminated from contention, although if the Braves do come back, this almost has to be the greatest 5 game series of all time.
   867. salvomania Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:43 PM (#5888450)
This game isn't over.
   868. CFBF's Overflowing Pathos Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:44 PM (#5888451)
And the comeback begins!
   869. Hot Wheeling American Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:45 PM (#5888452)
The well-earned 1-13 chop!
   870. cardsfanboy Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:45 PM (#5888453)
I'm afraid that the Braves organization might take the wrong message from this game... they didn't give out foam tomahawks before the game to everyone, and now you can imagine that someone will find a superstitious way to blame them for making that decision.
   871. cardsfanboy Posted: October 09, 2019 at 06:55 PM (#5888456)
TBS announcers comparing the homeplate ump's strike call to Elaine Benes dance moves...classic.

Records set in the Cardinals' 10-run first inning:

--Most runs in a first inning in postseason history
--Most runs in any inning in a winner-take-all game in postseason history
--Tied for most runs in any inning in postseason history (2002 Angels, 1968 Tigers, 1929 A's)

That is so fckking weak.

Classless Cardinals.
   876. salvomania Posted: October 09, 2019 at 07:08 PM (#5888464)
I hope Albies hhits a 3-run homer
   877. salvomania Posted: October 09, 2019 at 07:09 PM (#5888465)
Pull Flaherty at 4.2 so he doesn't get the win. Shoulda pulled him after 2.
   878. salvomania Posted: October 09, 2019 at 07:09 PM (#5888466)
...but then I see the chop...
   879. Walks Clog Up the Bases Posted: October 09, 2019 at 07:09 PM (#5888467)
No longer watching; I take it the Acuna HBP was intentional?

If I'm a betting man, I would say yes.

edit: and I almost never think that ANY hbp is intentional.

Freddie Freeman is sure not shrouding himself in glory this series, is he?
   883. Mike A Posted: October 09, 2019 at 07:11 PM (#5888471)
Molina throws his bat into the OF on a sac fly and makes a throat-slashing gesture while looking at the Braves dugout, but Acuna is the one 'not respecting the game.'

OK.

agree.. some of the crowd though seemed to be halfheartedly doing the chop as if they know it's wrong, but it's all they have.
   885. CFBF's Overflowing Pathos Posted: October 09, 2019 at 07:13 PM (#5888474)
It's kind of funny how the Cardinals considered Acuna's little shuffle step after his game one home run to be a loathsome act of disrespect, and basically no one has said anything about Molina throwing his bat into right field and doing the throat slash gesture after his walk-off sacrifice fly.

At least it's not racism this time!
   886. CFBF's Overflowing Pathos Posted: October 09, 2019 at 07:14 PM (#5888475)

I'm perfectly fine with the first one, it's a moment of exuberance... the second one though is ridiculous... and Acuna get's hassled for the fact that he constantly makes mistakes in regards to the proper time to celebrate/watch and not.

Dammit, Mike.
Sorry! I've done that twice today.

agree.. some of the crowd though seemed to be halfheartedly doing the chop as if they know it's wrong, but it's all they have.
"Let's at least annoy some people on the way out."

Shildt....Why have Flaherty bat here? Munoz has not yet batted in the post season, why not give him a pinch hit appearance?

   891. CFBF's Overflowing Pathos Posted: October 09, 2019 at 07:17 PM (#5888480)
Apparently the Braves' best pitching plan would have been piggy-backing Tomlin and Newcomb.

I'm wondering at what point in time will "I" consider Flaherty to be an ace... he's had a great second half, and was considered a potential ace/number two as a prospect, but I still need more before I call him an ace, but he's pitching like an ace this year, so he's having an ace season I'll give him that.
   893. CFBF's Overflowing Pathos Posted: October 09, 2019 at 07:25 PM (#5888483)
Flaherty throwing six innings and 110ish pitches in this game seems really weird and unnecessary.

I think people are worried that Molina will actually retaliate. I see a neck tattoo guy making the throat slashy gesture, I'm not about to lecture him on etiquette.

The Braves need to get the bats going here soon.

Just need to average 4 runs an inning remaining to tie the game up.
   897. cardsfanboy Posted: October 09, 2019 at 07:37 PM (#5888489)
Carlos Martinez will give probably four, not sure who else will be willing to give up runs to make it a fun game.

McCann's a Braves legend and always will be, but he's looking pretty toasty at this point. I hope Anthopolous resists the temptation to just run back the McCann-Flowers platoon again.
   899. CFBF's Overflowing Pathos Posted: October 09, 2019 at 07:38 PM (#5888491)
If Martinez faces Acuna again, he's absolutely plunking him, warnings be damned.

I think in some way this game might be harder for Shildt to manage than a tight game. I agree with you generally but do you really want to yank your starter early and have the Braves get some momentum, suddenly it's 13-7, the crowd is losing their ####, your best pitcher is out of there...I mean yeah the likelihood of any of that is low but why make life harder than you need it to be? Presumably his next start is Monday's game three so this leaves him with regular rest plus a few hours (day game today, night game Monday) and in fairness it's been an easy 110 pitches. This wasn't 110 grind it out pitches, this was 110 pitches of "just throw strikes and let them hit it."
