    Interesting decision by the Dodgers to start Walker Buehler in Game 1. Hyun-Jin Ryu has a 1.21 ERA in his past three starts and dominated the Nationals in two starts this season (0.61 ERA, .415 OPS, 2 XBH).

    Astros are an interesting rebuild comparison vs. the Rays. They rebuilt their position players then traded for their starters. That lineup is so deep and you can hold a few down for a game, but there is always someone coming through in that lineup. Rays pitching is special, but they can't generate runs the way that Astros team can. They hit in the drafts on so many of their positional players.

    Here is an interesting quote from an article about the Yankees/Twins playoff game.

    https://news.yahoo.com/yanks-twins-epitome-baseballs-3-055837570.html

    They should have added popups to homers, walks and strikeouts.

    How does that relate to our D-backs? We fielded a lineup of line drive hitters who tried to put every pitch into the stands.

    As I've posted, I can't understand how the D-backs could use that approach while leaving the Minor League's top power hitter on the bench.

    Next season's D-backs manager needs to establish an offensive identity and stick to it.

    Tough game for Corbin. Sherzer starting tomorrow in a must win.
