Playoffs are set

See what happens when you sit Nick Markakis.

We could need the Little League rule for this one.  I expect a mutual adjournment post haste, but if the Dodgers really wanted there could be a 30-3 run here.  I think if the hitters lock, Snitker won't let them work the good middle relievers and we'll get postseason position player pitching.

We'll see Bottom 1 Acuna, Freeman, Ozuna transmit the let's make outs fast code.  

The Braves have to use 8.1 relief innings today... and tomorrow they are planning on a "bullpen" game with a bunch of relievers going.

Doesn't seem to be anything that could have stopped the Braves from just forfeiting the game after the first.  I find the idea interesting from a game theory perspective.

The uproar from purists would be enormous.

And the Fox Sports Network might be a bit unhappy as well

Sure, but as an issue of game theory I think the idea has merit.

Well sure, forfeiting the game and saving your pitching staff to fight another day has merit in theory.  I don't think anyone would argue that point.  It's a point but a moot point.

I wonder how Dodger fandom felt about 19/20/21 Acuna/Freeman/Ozuna.   I mean he's CLAYTON KERSHAW and he turned back the clock pretty well this summer, but still it's anybody.   My top two guesses entering this series would have been Dodgers 5 and Dodgers 4 so I'm beyond thrilled for Nick/O'Day here.  Still 9 long outs tonight.

I also hope Elias locked in his Correa' 22 price, beating Nick Anderson and all tonight.  I've been heavy writing the Astros downfall, but notwithstanding the next week and a half, the Springer and Brantley team picks will give a good clue.  Greinke seems like he'd appreciate a deal after his postgame comments yesterday.

The Morton-McCullers matchup tonight is of the two guys who tandem shut out the Yankees in Game 7 three years back.

That's the game that stands out in my memory as the one where McCullers threw all curves - Savant has it at "only" 41 out of 54.

Imagine Greinke wondering today if club will show any confidence in him tonight.

Anxious for Nick now - that Mookie play spooking Ozuna into the TOOTBLAN flub got Dodgers past a Joe Kelly use while trailing in an elimination game, and could elevate to Jeter against Oakland legend levels if the Dodgers get the dogpile.  

O'Day (and Melancon) both fully charged, neither having pitched since Tuesday.  I think Dodgers take one more laugher somewhere out of the last possible two.
