Even if you have the split advantage unnecessarily putting the go ahead on is stupid. Sure McCann can burn you with a base hit, but unless he hits a homer you can still get out of it without giving up the lead.

Yeah. Isn't that one of the unwritten rules? Not to be the go ahead run on base.

Cardinals fans seem pissed at his managing in the 9th. The IBB and then staying with Martinez so long.
He also stayed with Wainwright too long, let's be honest here.

In the Astros case this year, "don't put anyone on base intentionally."

Howie Kendrick essentially ruins the Nats rally with stupid baserunning.

I said previously that if the Rays forced game four that the series would end up going the full five. Astros are going to start Verlander tomorrow on short rest. Going to be interesting.

Yadi is such an awesome player. I wish the Marlins had a guy like Yadi.

Whichever teams go to NLCS, WS pannant will go to a AL team. A pitching depth's gap was so big, especially quality of bullpen.

Still pulling for a Rays vs Nationals World Series.

I'm reading an article by Jason Stark on the Athletic about the Rays shocking the world by beating the Astros. This snippit is from it:

"Yeah, yeah. We know it’s massively unlikely. But c’mon, friends. Use your imagination for just a minute. It’s not like it’s impossible, right? It’s not like we’re talking about the Marlins here."

Cheap shot, Stark.

What does everyone think of the decision to start Verlander on short rest in a game that wasn't a must win?

I like it cause I want the Rays to do well, cause why not? Go low payroll!

I thought it was a good move since they still have Cole on full rest, but what do I know. Also remember that Beckett pitched game 6- technically not a must win for the Marlins- on 3 days rest.

3 DS games are so funny. Whether they want it or not, every starting pitcher gonna take a reliever duty right now. I just envy Yankee fans.

Tropicana Field suddenly selling out feels really uncomfortable to me.

The vast majority of those fans don't deserve to see that team pull it off.

Yeah I hate bandwagon fans. Same thing happened with the Marlins in 1997 and 2003. What sucks is that some loyal fans who went during the year may have been unable to get tickets to the playoff game because a fake fan went.
