Dodgers gm 7 starter TBD (Dustin May)

SDS

Robert's is not announcing who's starting. It's Gonsolin's turn. Urias could go too. I don't see Kershaw starting on 2 days rest with recent back spasms.
Who would you go with?

I'd start Urias and have Kershaw out of the pen if need be. Neither Gonsolin or Kershaw looked good enough in their starts for a game 7.

Its me, I'll win with my WTF was that pitch.

I was thinking that too. Or start Gonsolin then have Urias in bullpen then Kershaw. As long as they don't bring Kershaw in with runners on base. Let Graterol pitch to the top of the lineup late in the game. 8th or 9th, whenever they come up.

If the dodgers have any plan of kershaw pitching he should start and do 2 innings, one time through the order max.

My guess is no on kershaw. Some combination of gonsolin, Urías, May to get through the first 6. If one of them is dealing maybe they go a little longer. If one of them gets in trouble, you bring in kelly to clean up the inning.

At that point, you pick your best guys to get you whatever they can. The dodgers still need some things to go there way to win. And the Braves are putting s lot of pressure on a young arm. Should be fun.

Go Dodgers!!!

Its the Dodgers, just throw whomever out there and let the lineup nut up and get to work lol. No way they should be in a game 7 vs anyone with that team. And if they dont beat the Rays in 4 or 5 in shouldnt count. 😆

I agree with you except on Kelly. You trust him? I don't like him in a tight jam. He got lucky yesterday on Ozunas tag up error. I trust Baez more. Treinens been good lately. Same with Jansen.

Thing is you don't know what lineup your going to get. They're either on fire or everyone's 0 for 4.

SDS

Probably a combo of Gonsolin and Urias...Hopefully the Dodger's Pitchers can limit damage and prevent big innings because Anderson will be tough to hit and his change is filthy.

You might be right about kelly. I also forgot they had Graterol as an opener before.

The reality is no matter what they do, if the dodgers lose it will all be second guessed and they will blame Roberts. If they win no one will give him credit. But, that’s how it goes.

I haven't seen any big mistakes on Roberts part this post season. He's made some big ones in years past. In 17, Kershaw should of started game 7, in 18 he didn't start Bellinger and Muncy in games 1 and 2 in Boston because of the lefty matchup. In 19, he brings in Kershaw in relief and let's him pitch to Rendon after giving up a home run to Soto.
These are the major mistakes. There have been numerous bullpen mistakes. But so far, the losses in this series are on the players.

I officially lost my bracket, so now I am not sure who to root for.... 🙂
either way, @thinkbluedgr DOESN'T want Kershaw on the bump, I would hope... 🙂

I'm a big fan of Kershaw but he has had his fair share of post season struggles. I'd rather not see him in the game today. I can't take another "Kershaw choked and blew the game" scenario. Too many of those. If he had to come in for one left handed hitter like Freeman, then I could see it. But then there's the 3 batter minimum so forget it.

SDS

I just checked and May is listed as starter. Oh my.

SDS

May threw 55 pitches on Friday. He walked two, allowed three hits, and gave up two runs. He's pitching on one day rest.

I really thought Gonsolin or Urias would of started. I guess May will be kept on a short leash. We'll see.
