Lead off hitter steals 2nd and you bunt?

Nats must have some great scouts, the way they got to Cole. Stros got some guys not producing. Be hard to win without them. Scherzer survived quaking and tottering. Cole didn't survive less.

Hinch was a Psych major. Now's the time for him to see if he remembers how to do a manager's most important job. Gonna be fun. (You thought it was deciding whether to bunt or not???)

Springer pimping his double in the 8th cost the Astros tying the game up. He would have been standing on third base easily with a little hustle and scored the tying run on the fly ball by Altuve.

Eaton should have caught that ball anyway.

Didn't the White Sox get to Cole in May? At the time I didn't think he was having a great season and didn't ponder the attributes of White Sox scouts. Obviously, it was only the second week of May, and he's had a great season since the White Sox got to hm for six earned runs in five plus innings.

This probably won't be Cole's last start of the year, though he'll get a lot of money this offseason no matter what sort of World Series he has, or for that matter, what sort of a career he has after he signs his next contract.

May was the last time Cole gave up 5 runs in a game. He was on a 19-0 streak going into Game 1 of the World Series.

Is this inconsistent with anything I posted?

"By Springer's estimation, the answer was no. He was watching Eaton track the ball, but with Tucker on second, waiting to see if the ball was caught, Springer envisioned a possible scenario where he could have caught Tucker on the basepaths, and possibly passed him."

That's one of the worst explanations I've ever heard.

Great game last night.

When the Nats brought Corbin in, I said to myself, "Jeez, why are they using Corbin already tonight?"

One inning later, watching the Nats' Bullpen: "Oh, yeah, that's why."

Nats blow it open with a 6-spot in the 7th of Game 2. Astros not helped by 2 bad plays by Bergman, only one of which was actually registered as an error.

Waiting next week for our own fans to say the rebuild is a bust because Sale and Eaton won World Series in back-to-back seasons.

12-2 now. Nats might want to save some of these for DC.

12-3 final.

On to Washington, which on Friday will be seeing its first World Series game since October 7, 1933 (a gap of 31,429 days).

Official scorer was very generous to Bregman in the 7th inning. Dude could have easily been charged with two errors that were scored as infield hits.

Welp, 1996 taught us that teams can rebound from losing the 1st 2 home games. So we'll see what happens, Stros are good on the road.

Nats have tied us for longest postseason win streak. Except we were never close to elimination. The Dodgers had them on the ropes twice.

What a run, but I do hope Houston strikes back. I hate wild cards winning it all, but I do want to see the more rested team win it. It sucks to see teams pay a price for finishing their opponents early. I wonder if a manager ever purposely let a series last longer for the sake of momentum. That'd be way too risky.

Does anyone here think the Sox purposely slumped in September 2005 so they can roar back and ride that momentum into October

Better rested teams have done so badly, that it's inevitable that a team will throw games just so they can cut the rest time. I wonder what team will be the first to do that, or if it's happened before already.

This nats team seems as unstoppable as the 96 Braves were. So stay tuned...

I was a doubter, but maybe, just maybe we can win with pitching, defense and fundamentals.
