Make that 5 K's
This game is over.
Maeda had a very team friendly deal. They got Brusdar for him but in hindsight probably a mistake trading him.
Snell is dealing, Dodgers have no clue what’s coming.
Yankees had a ton on injuries though that happened after free agency was finished.
Severino and Paxton, namely.
They always put Maeda in the pen for the playoffs anyway.
In the past though they had other starters such as Ryu, Hill, and Wood. Hill and Ryu are gone and Wood is clearly not the same pitcher. Guess they thought they could get through this season with their younger pitchers, still can work. Only a game away.
Paxton was absolutely garbage before he got hurt. It was addition by subtraction.
ANOTHER Cashman failure. Among too many.
Dodgers finally get a hit
Perhaps, but even accounting for injuries, the Yanks STILL look thin to me in the starting rotation.
Severino, when healthy, for sure is a stud.
But then who after that?
Tanaka is perhaps best as a good bottom of the rotation guy.
Jordan Montgomery? An ok pitcher, but hardly a top of the rotation guy a team with aspirations on winning titles every year would have to pin hopes on.
Paxton? I never was that impressed with him. Even in Seattle. Never saw the allure of him by some pitching in NY.
When its his turn to pitch, "dominant performance" isn't exactly what comes to mind even if he does happen to have a good outing.
I still think those two big money teams LA and NY rely a ton on their offense hoping it would cover deficiencies in their rotations.
That was smoked.
The hot corner lives up to its name!
What a snare by Wendle.
Again...love him in the field...at the plate, not so much
Cashman needs to be fired is what I am reading here.
Wendle has been lights out in the field these playoffs.Wow.
Pretty good base running to not get doubled off there
Man...can't his glove teach his bat how to work?
Big zone tonight.
Didnt realize it was in the 30's in Arlington, makes sense as it is going to be in the 40's here in Houston.
Dodgers are a disgrace.
Can't wait for Snell to be inexplicably pulled before the 5th inning ends.
The hard high cheese....love that pitch.
Snell is pitching great.
Which means they will decide to overmanage and remove him from the game in the middle of the 5th inning after 60 pitches, because that is what their spreadsheet will tell them to do.
Game 6 of the World Series, in a must-win game where you are facing elimination.
You have a former Cy Young winner on the mound, and he is pitching like a Cy Young winner.
I would pitch Snell until his arm fell off, but watch them pull him during the 5th inning.
I think being in game 6 of the WS is a pretty good indication Cash has a bit of a handle on it.
