    I disagree with this, but let's just stop talking about that in this thread.

    Bad juju.

    Take it to the general discussion thread.

    I'm fed up with the all the national reporters talking up "Philadelphia's amazing home field advantage and loud fans" and how that will make it hard to win there.

    Will Smith on the roster scares me. I get it with the two awesome Philly lefties…. But it scares me

    makes more sense to have that option who has pitched well against their best lefties instead of having Seth who wouldn't pitch anyway

    I hate to be the bearer of bad news.
    For game 1 did you see what happened when Nola last pitched here?
    Does everyone think magically Astors are going to score at least 2 runs on him?
    Have you seen Verlander postseason ERA?

    After game starts , I am going to hear everyone on here complaining the Astors don't know how to get a hit while Verlander gets knocked out early.

    I don’t love giving Dusty the option of Will Smith but I’m not going to complain about it yet.

    So... why not use Verlander's regular season start against the Phillies like you used Nola's against Houston?

    5 IP, 0 hits, 10 Ks, 1 BB

    you've become numb to all the WS losses lol.

    if they win or lose, it was out of your control. do you gain or lose anything from the astros losing or winning? not really.

    just pride

    I'm gonna be there tonight in the Crawford Boxes, and I can't ****ing wait. This is the most geeked I've been for a game since 2019, but even then, this one just feels different. Different vibes, different energy, hopefully different outcome. LET'S ****ING GO!!!
