Maybe, or that the Astros score early again, as they seem to do every game, and the home team holds on to finally win a game.


yep

I will project that if Strasburg goes NINE, Nats win. 
Wouldnt touch the game with real money - though the under 7.5 runs total looks appetizing

if Strasburg goes 9. the Nats win?

Thats a limb grown on a 500 year old Sequoia and could support a 5 bedroom 5 bath house with a swimming pool and tennis court in the back.

you should be very comfortable on that limb.

Who do you like to win the game?    ASTROS

Which starting pitcher will do well?     BOTH

Which bullpen more likely mucks it?     NATS

What else you need?

I wonder the last time a pitcher went 9 in a World Series Game without getting the win. Gibson in '68? Probably since then but I will wager not since the rise.of.the modern bull pen, and not in a National League park.

Well, basically what I am saying is you have to be nuts - or up against a specific circumstance to take the guy out tonight

Torre pulled arguably the best pitcher of the modern era in the 4th inning in G7 '03 ALCS as he was having an offnigh  and was getting hit, and won the game.

Yeah, CIRCUMSTANCE (pitch count) would have gotten Ol Rog by the sixth anyway.  He stunk.

I understood that. That was a factual inquiry. I thought about Smoltz, but he only went into the 8th in 91 game 7.

The 6th?

If Ol "Rog stayed in for another batter there's a good chance that game might have been lost.

Too bad Ol' Grady wasn't taking notes on when to pull a starter who has shot his load.

Glavine pitched a complete game loss but went only 8 innings in that same WS (G2).

Cant fault Martinez re:  Scherzer usage.  But I try to get 8 from Stras.
