:clap: I'll go to BK for that game to do my part.

Excellent! Croissandwich for breakfast, BK Broiler for dinner, Whopper with cheese for supper. 

Dessert, you ask?  You get to have it your way...

I don't think that there should be any doubt that mitlen should start Game 1 of the NLCS (formerly known as The Pennant). He leads WNFF with 15 wins for the whole 2019 season, with both of our 2 wins against St. Louis (1 away, 1 at home). Also, note that in the corrected career playoff statistics, mitlen is undefeated at 2-0.

Maybe The Chief in Game 3 or later, with 5 or more days rest.

The Chief has the normal 4 days' rest, but he's LOST his last 2 playoff GDT starts.

I'd save spidernat for the Game 2 Saturday matinee, if he's allowed to post by the mods.

See below:

At your Mods meeting, you can discuss how I created this thread first, with the exact title in place now. You then promptly deleted it and moved the posts to the Johnny-Come-Lately thread later created by CoryTheFormerExposFan, who couldn't be bothered with posting in my thread, which was on the same page. (It's not the first time he's done this on WNFF.).
              :wtf:

I must have missed this but my personal policy on competing GDTs has been to simply merge them all together, and whoever had the first post ends up being the creator of the newly merged topic.  As for "called" thread etiquette that's a bit trickier but I would suggest that interested parties should express their intent in the "Gameday Threads - 2019" thread, and we can discuss from there.

I'm not sure I'll be around to set up a GDT.     Let's go with a Plan B.     Thanks

This is the first NLCS game in team history. The game is in 7 hours. A thread should have been up by now. If someone doesn’t start one in thirty, I’m going to do it.

I agree that the GDT should be up early. bluestreak already has a road playoff win at Los Angeles, so he's a good choice.

I'm not sure I'll be around to set up a GDT.     Let's go with a Plan B.     Thanks

If mitlen can't do it, then maybe spidernat could do it. (spidey didn't post during Game 5, and only posted that Strasburg had a perfect game going in Game 2.) Slateman didn't post pictures in his winning GDT, but he did post the lineups.

If mitlen won't do Game 2, I was going to recommend that GregSRT do it, 1-0 in the season, a makeup game with Philly, part of a SWEEP! He has positive, good vibes.
