That's on Dusty. If he bunts the runner to third try score a run.

Astros just got an insurance run.  Kimbrel pitching like Storen.

There's something to be said for that.  Modern closers so rarely come in with men on base that they're almost like starters that way.  But it puts the manager in a tough spot, because the media up there would crucify him for losing with anything other than his best pitchers on the mound.

MAT should be leading off Game 4. Trea Turner is lost out there

the sox are down in that series because their SP has been terrible. Gave up at least one run in every first inning of the series.

You know, maybe this injury is forcing Max to  not freak around with too many pitches? We'll see how it goes the second time through the order. Pitcher and batter in the same light plane now.

Standard discussion. Same logic applies to our experience with Storen, which is how the discussion got started in this thread.  Standard discussion.

Yup, here too.

I'm sure Jacque Jones will, but what about the boys on the field?

He may score but there won't be any pictures.

I'll never understand why Ryan Zimmerman just stares down pitches right down the middle of the plate.....

Seems Werth decided to try hitting with his eyes open today.
