    May want to check your math on that one... edit, I meant World Series.... how quickly one can forget.

    In the end, I agree. It doesn't matter what names are on the back, only results. I also think the 2019 staff was ultimately less reliant on an elite back-end bullpen, but had one nonetheless. This years team having an elite back-end bullpen is a welcome/devleoping story that the starting pitchers who max out at 5-6 at the moment will very much benefit from.

    Kikuchi has very lopsided righty/lefty splits. Opponent OPS is over .900 against righties! So.... yah. We didn't see the usual Kikuchi tonight.

    You should have told our RHB before the game. Or before the last one.

    Sometimes a guy has your number, he certainly does this year so far.

    Bleh. Unfortunate we couldn’t take this one, but keep winning 3 out of 4 and I’ll be a happy fan.

    Ugh... game of inches. Chas almost robbed that homer and we'd be going to extras.

    Would Bregs have scored if he didn't catch that?
