    So this pretty much cements JV as a World Series choker

    Please make this Accutane face bitch leave the field with it over after this game. Why the F did JV pitch to him ?

    Can’t help but think JV’a struggles are a product of him logging a ton of innings in the regular season, being 37(?), and throwing a lot of innings in the playoffs as well.

    Just a meeting with the bats, it feels like every time Verlander criticizes the hitting, it wakes up. I like to call it the Verlander Buff.

    We should sign Cole and trade JV. One pitcher is on the rise and the other on the decline.

    Hopefully this score will at least hold untill they get to their bullpen. The Astros bats have gotten to their pen consistently.

    5 consecutive games of JV giving up a HR
    8 total
    2 vs Rays
    3 vs Yankees
    3 vs Nationals

    He 100% is. ERA over 5 in multiple appearances. That’s horrible coming from a guy who regularly is a 2-3 era guy with an extremely low whip.

    Problem is, with how Stras is pitching they may not have to go to the pen.

    We have to force him out, only way.
