    I would’ve preferred Urias starting honestly.

    Everyone on a short hook though I suppose.

    If May attacks guys and stays out of 3 ball counts he’ll be fine. It seems like every AB is a full count with him it’s frustrating as hell

    The key to not getting Steiner'd is give yourself at least 3 seconds (4-5 would be better) between the moment you hear the crack of the bat and the point where you reasonably expect to understand what happened/is happening on the play. Disregard anything you hear in between.

    Oh wow, May getting the start. I expect it will be more of an opener situation with Gonsolin and Urias getting the bulk of innings.

    Seems like a good kid and he's a good pitcher but Dustin May has to be one of the ugliest players i've ever seen lol

    Nobody will ever top this beauty...

    I just don’t get Pollack. Davey won’t take him out and he’s done nothing this series. Fuck, let Kershaw hit.

    at least he won’t give up a home run :laff:

    Kershaw is “available”

    I’ll never ever understand

    Isn’t he pretty decent in bullpen use outside of last year?

    I’d rather see Kershaw than Kenley.

    Rick and Kevin are the best Dodger radio duo in my opinion.
    Rick isn't the most polished play by play guy, but he and Kevin have good chemistry and great insight into strategy and fundamentals. I learn a lot listening to them.

    Charlie has a nice baseball voice but he butchers too many calls for radio.

    As far as television goes...I know this is probably an unpopular opinion but I think Joe Davis is horrible. Generic as they come.

    Not sure why they are going with May here. If he’s available, he’s been sooo fucking good in relief, why not give him the 8th/9th? Only thing I can think of is it is May for 1-2 so the Braves set their lineup, then flip to Urias for 2-3 in hopes the Braves make some moves, then go back to Gonsolin as long as he can go. Still.... this is a weird choice and I’m guessing it’s not Davey making this call.

    My guess is it’s a matchup thing. The top-3 in the Braves lineup is probably the most dangerous trio in all of baseball, so they are trying to pick those matchups today.

    David Ortiz acting like the Dodgers got all their players through free agency.
