It’s the age old conundrum: do you burn all your good pitching in an elimination game to actually give the best chance of a decider, knowing you will at a great disadvantage in that game since your top arms are unavailable. Or do you spread thin in both games meaning less chance of winning the first but more chance in game 2...

For the record I have no clue what we should do!

Max has plenty of complete games. Maybe he shocks the world and cruises

playoff Max is way too intense to pitch a complete game.

  He's also not very good in the playoffs.  A complete game while giving up 8 runs isn't going to help us much.

I'm still curious about the Howie thing.    I'm over the "good bat" theory.

I think starting Howie is a mistake. I'd have give Zimm 4 at-bats tonight and bring in Howie off the bench when needed.

This   ...  that's not even considering the glove aspect.

It's about putting your best lineup out there, not sentimentality

I wanna wallow in it so I think Taylor gave up on the first double by the Dodgers last night.     I think Robles would have kicked Kingman to the curb and ran out the route   .....

I think you're right.  Taylor & Soto weren't sure who would go for it and who would back up.  If Robles was out there, there would not have been any question.

I thought so too.   If Robles was in the game, then Corbin pitched great, Davey makes amazing decisions and we are playing to win the series today :-)

I feel like Soto has been worse without Robles too.   I don't know if his position has changed, or Robles tells him where to go, but there are at least a couple hits that I was expecting Soto to catch that he didn't.

I still think it was closer than a lot of folks think.     There's a camera angle (home plate area) that shows Taylor almost coming to a stop as he approaches Kingman and the ball.    I think Robles runs through the caution and gets real close.     Anyway, doesn't matter now.     We gotta get some  today.
