Wow, wasn't aware of that fact. Thanks for the heads up. Just sick of a few folks (not you) spamming the board with negative (and also wrong) comments every 5 seconds. I'll sign off for the day.

Kinda just comes with the territory saying what's on their mind unfiltered, I'm used to it regardless of how I feel about it.  I look for your answer on what they were wrong about tomorrow.

Looks like everyone was jet lagged. Tomorrow they should win. No excuse.

Hell of a game to pick as my first playoff game. :(

 

My view was great and the fans didn't give me any crap, so it was pleasant enough. Just a trash performance.

In theory, you're right.  But weird **** happens so much in baseball and several World Series winners have had some sketchy ass guys in their line up and BP.

 

Cardinals are the poster child for this.  On the other side of the coin, the Tigers about 2010 - 2014 were perfectly built for the postseason but could never win it all

 

So baseball is weird.

I hope this series convinces the front office to open up their wallets and lock some guys down. We're good, but we have some moves to make in order to keep up with the league's best.

Fernando effing Rodney LOL come on Davey what are you doing

I’m stunned this is the only criticism of Martinez tonight in the Rodney situation.

 

After he miraculously got Bellinger out, Doolittle should have entered the game. This isn’t a hindsight criticism.

 

Martinez had a great game on Tuesday and then made a critical mistake there.

Nats weren’t scoring any runs anyway honestly.  Save Doolittle.

So tonight's game is at 9:37pm. That pisses me off. IMO, that's insane for a playoff game...these are the games that should be scheduled to allow MORE fans to watch, not less.

 

I was only able to make it to the sixth or top of the seventh last night before I fell asleep.

So we shouldn’t care about the stadium goers?

They don't have weekday 1 o'clock and 4 pm games on the west coast?

They didn’t for Atlanta.  Game starting at 5 on a Thursday in Atlanta?  If you got out at 4 you’d miss a quarter of the game with their traffic.

That’s fair. I think it’s hard to do that midweek in LA.

I mean, they started yesterdays game before 9, that was what, 5:37 pacific time? You can only fit thousands in a stadium, millions of people watch it on tv.  I have same beef with nba playoffs, needs to be more compromise, especially for the most important gsmes like playoffs

 From what I understand, LA set an attendance record or close to it, averaging roughly 49k a game...that's pretty much a sellout already. I'm pretty sure there were some day games in there.

I see more people on Twitter complaining about Strickland and Rodney than I do 2 hits.

It is completely impossible to win a game without scoring a run--their performance, while terrible, didn't matter.

I dunno, I feel like when you start chasing runs in the first damn inning, it creates bad juju. Ca t complain about pitching except for that. But the bats have got to wake up.

San Francisco and Kansas City lineups that were nothing special during the season suddenly become a murderer's row in October.

 

You can give yourself a great chance to win by building up overpowering pitching even with a sketchy line up, but all it takes is one mistake from one of your studs to turn a series.  Thus weirdness will always be a part of baseball.  It's the one sport where I'm totally convinced that magic is a decisive factor in the outcome of a season.
