WS Game 2 Braves vs Astros

Recommended Posts

I know Greinke isn’t what he used to be, but I think it's a  mistake not to use him, even in a limited innings capacity, to start a WS game. There’s no substitute for big game experience.

I'll take pure, overpowering stuff over big game experience.

Which is why I hope the Braves activate young Spencer Strider (who can throw 100 MPH) to replace Morton on the roster - rather than someone like Jacob Webb or Josh Tomlin.  Actually, I don't think it'll be any of those.  I think it'll be either Toukki Toussaint (sp?) or Kyle Muller. 

And I think the game 4 or 5 starter will be Kyle Wright rather soft-tosser Drew Smyly.

I wouldn’t put any of the guys you named in the same sentence with Greinke. He’s been successful without over powering hitters for some time now. 

While I do prefer guys who can throw hard, it’s meaningless without knowing how to pitch. Greinke knows how to pitch.

And I never meant to imply that they were comparable to Greinke.  I only meant what I said - that I'd prefer an inexperienced hard-thrower like Strider to an experienced player who can't get people out.
