Per Charlie & Dave, there is a FREE Game 5 Watch Party at Nationals Park. No admission cost.

If TBS is smart, they'll have a camera there to show crowd reactions, if the Nationals win Game 5 in Los Angeles.

It's a risky decision.  Might be a very light turnout.  Even if 15,000 attend, there will be a sea of empty seats.  Might affect Rendon's performance :roll:

Nationals Park and Game Five. What could go wrong?

TBS would not want to show a large number of fans screaming at the bias of the TBS announcers

They will put everybody in one area, probably on the 3B side of the park for a better view of the scoreboard. It's gonna be great time.

Honestly, that's a toss up. Dodgers have a ton of pressure, but they'll be back here next year and probably the year after that.

Nationals, on the other hand, have the demons of being one of the most talented franchises in history to accomplish nothing knocking at their door. What appears to be a third time going over the luxury tax and nothing substantial to show for it. Prime, once in a generation talent, and an inability to win a 5 game series. The Nats window is slamming shut.

Well we certainly felt it with previous Game 5's in the NLDS with homefield.

Dodgers haven’t won in 31 years despite having consistently one of the best teams in baseball. They are on the verge of wasting the career of one of the 5 greatest pitchers ever. This is a premier franchise. They are definitely feeling pressure.

What a game last night. Best one of the post season so far. We exorcised some demons. We got Rich Hill out of the game early. Then sent the Dodgers two best relievers packing (Maeda, Urias). Then Scherzer with the legendary performance. Then Zimm with the huge dinger. Rendon seems to have gotten on track knocking runs in at every opportunity. Everything just fell into place in this game.

Here's hoping Strasburg has an encore performance in store for us.

You joined in 2017. Pretty clear that was the last real shot this franchise had.

Barves must be feeling some pressure too.  They have been even more pitiful than we have in NLDS's in the 21st century.

I think this year's team is better than 2017's.   This year's Dodgers are probably better than anyone we've had to play though.

I've been watching their series, they have bullpen woes just like we do. Mark Melancon is trash right now and they are using starters out of the pen. Teheran gave up the walk off yesterday in 10.

Except they rebuilt in that time too. If they had maxed payroll this whole time, I would agree. But they didn't. They rebuilt. They have a ton of young, controllable talent, and two of their three most important pieces are locked up long term.

I have no idea how to read all that.  Does the 1.5 spread mean that if someone bets on the Dodgers, and the Dodgers win by 1 run, that the bettor loses the bet?

Well, I bet we were favorites on at least 2 of the previous game 5s.

Positive number = what you get if you bet $100 and the team you bet on wins
Negative number = what you need to bet to get $100 if they win.

So if you bet $100 on the Nats, and they win, you get $232 (your $100 + $132).
If you bet $152 on the Dodgers, and they win, you get $252

I believe the spread takes into account odds of winning/losing by a set number of runs (in this case 1.5).

Total = total # of runs

Bottom line, we're big underdogs.
