Is Stanton going to pinch hit in the 9th?

Didi stinks, by the way.
What cannot happen is a blown game for Houston followed by days of rain that bail Boone out from his spending relievers like ARod spends his money on hair product.another run or two wouldn't hurt, astros
Tim Lincecum threw 149 pitches in his 2014 no hit game. But, usually, any pitch count over 105-110 gets all kinds of people nervous.I wish they pulled Bob Gibson in the 1967 game 7 series. It's ok, I'm over it.
If a guy is throwing well I don't get too stressed until over 120. 149 sounds totally nuts to me. I guess by 2014 he was pretty broken though so might as well let him go for it.Tim Lincecum threw 149 pitches in his 2014 no hit game.

The pitch counts for the good ones have been really low, they've only really burned Cessa even if there is a game tomorrow (which sounds unlikely). The problem is they can't score, not the pitching.What cannot happen is a blown game for Houston followed by days of rain that bail Boone out from his spending relievers like ARod spends his money on hair product.
He actually only threw 113 in that game.Tim Lincecum threw 149 pitches in his 2014 no hit game.
They're in even better position to lose the series.Yankees still in good position to take 4 & 5.
You’re right. I was thinking of another Giants no hitter, by Jonathan Sanchez, as the first Giants no hitter in a while, and then Tim’s as the second.He actually only threw 113 in that game.
Edit: Oh, he threw 148 in his other no-hitter the year before, in 2013.
Yeah that whole business is REALLY old. Think of something new anyway.Pitiful NYY fans chanting Houston Sucks. I don't care who does that, the chanters always seem pitiful.
That’s what I thought he said too, but I went back and 99% sure he said “face him”.Altuve on Cole "Like I said, I'm really glad I don't have to fight him".
NugenixYou’re right. I was thinking of another Giants no hitter, by Jonathan Sanchez, as the first Giants no hitter in a while, and then Tim’s as the second.
Damn, Frank Thomas is about 1 1/2 times as wide in the shoulders as Big Papi.
Classiest fans in the game. Or so that's the shit they keep telling everyone.NEW YORK -- Houston Astros right fielder Josh Reddick braced himself for the abuse at Yankee Stadium, and has always been able to take the verbal insults, but objects thrown at him before the eighth inning Tuesday night infuriated him.
“There’s no place in the game for that type of thing,’’ Reddick said after the Astros’ 4-1 victory over the New York Yankees in Game 3 of the American League Championship Series. “I think I saw seven or right water bottles out in the outfield, and two souvenir baseballs thrown from center field to left. It’s scary.
"I don’t think a lot of people realize how scary that can really be. You throw a baseball hard enough, hit somebody in the head when we’re not looking, it can do some damage to you as a player. You throw a baseball from the third deck, it’s got a little bit of moment on it.
“It’s frustrating to see that as a player in the outfield. We’re usually the ones throwing stuff at you.
“It’s definitely disrespectful, and at the same time, very unsafe.’’
Astros manager A.J. Hinch informed the umpiring crew of the fan abuse, and the Yankees responded with a public-service announcement reminding the sell-out crowd of 48,998 that throwing objects on the field could result in ejections.
Still, Reddick had his doubts that anything would happen, critical of security Monday in an interview with the Houston Chronicle.
“The most frustrating part is there’s no action taken,” Reddick said. “You look at the security guards, they’re just watching, not saying a thing to anybody. Hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if they were the ones helping to say that. It’s just a matter of circumstance to where they just let it ride.”
This is the 2nd time that players on the opposing team have felt so strongly about the Yankee fans' behavior that they've spoken up about it. Having been to Yankee Stadium and sat out there, it does not surprise me.
It is, but it still doesn't change the calculation that the Yankees need to win at least one game against Cole or Verlander and then the other two games.That’s a big win for the Astros.
Is it? Tanaka at full rest tomorrow vs Greinke.That’s a big win for the Astros.
I don’t trust Tanaka to pitch great twice in a row.Is it? Tanaka at full rest tomorrow vs Greinke.
Well, now that it will be four games in four days, the Yankees need to get length from their starters. There is no two ways about that.Is it? Tanaka at full rest tomorrow vs Greinke.
Game 6 would be the bullpen game, Cole and Severino would still be on 3 days rest for game 6 as those games will not be pushed back unless there is a second rainout here (not expected).It also means we might get bullpen games for Game 7 for both teams.
Yeah that adds up. Still, it's the same calculation as before Yankees need to win at least one of the Cole/Verlander starts while winning the other two games. That can still happen despite the rainout.Game 6 would be the bullpen game, Cole and Severino would still be on 3 days rest for game 6 as those games will not be pushed back unless there is a second rainout here (not expected).
Tanaka's done nothing in the post-season but pitch well his whole career.I don’t trust Tanaka to pitch great twice in a row.
You're better than this, this same thing came up last year with HOU in the postseason, and in the 2017 WS also (detailed in this piece):We can't beat them, so they must cheat. As much a sign of a Yankee October as horrific behavior by fans in the Bidet
