Thursday’s games review (48:40)
Tanaka going today. What are your thoughts on him today?
I don’t think you should have any hesitation starting him against the Jays.
Looking forward to the offseason lists.
I have said it before, but that gambler’s fallacy cuts both ways. Betting on red, just because it has been black ten times in a row is the same thing as expecting it to be black the next time. Each event is an independent trial.
Nick- looks like Gausman may get the start this Sunday at TB. Do you have any hesitation to start him?
I think you’re fine rolling with Gausman tomorrow.
Do you like Lugo vs H Alvarez (Phi) at home? He’s been doin nice in September and his peripherals look pretty good too. I checked Phillies team batting stats for away and they’re in the middle of the pack in terms of wOBA, K% and BB%. Think he can get the W and some Ks?
It’s always possible against the Phils, though I don’t believe much in Lugo himself.
If you’re Win/Strikeout chasing, he’s not a bad play.
