    Maybe closer to the Bills since '17 isn't respected

    At least Lance has settled down. Since he might be pitching a game 7, it’s good for his confidence and fixing whatever issue he had (whether tipping or mechanical).

    To be fair....Lance is still doing better than JV.

    As the commentators just said not playing yesterday helped the Phillies. They play great at home too. Even if we lose tonight that extra day of rest will be neutralized tomorrow.

    im not conceding that we lose tonight. It looks like LMJ is settled down. We can probably get another inning out of him. WE JUST NEED TO HIT!

    I mean..... This team has to pinch hit their dh ... Which came into this game at 1 for their last 34 at bats. Altuve's hitless streak before this series, Alvarez stinking it up..... Unreal. Now Verlander and McCullers.

    I'm still here watching though ... Until they hit another 2 run bomb.

    Even if we don't come back tonight it's still a series.....they'll have a whole 2-1 lead. We gotta to get ONE of these to get it back to H. I feel really good with CJ on the bump.

    Looks like he was tipping his pitches. Explains the 1, 2, 3 innings since. Doesn’t matter if the offense can’t get the ball out of the infield.

    I thought from the picture it might be a different part of the windup and camera angle, but the twitter thread has a video and it’s obvious in motion once you see it.

    This is the easiest game for the Phillies, our offense is not even trying

    Games over. No juice from the Astros.

    Are we sure the Astros aren't the 1919 Black Sox. They look like they aren't trying and don't care.

    It's 2019 and 2021 all over again. Why even make the World Series if the Astros are just gonna hand out the trophy easily every year.
