    I really don't like the Stroman vs Tillman matchup. Marcus has been so fucking bipolar this year, and we really haven't hit Tillman well.

    And then there's Zach Britton, so if we go into the 9th down we're fucked.

    Zach Britton was something stupid like 45/45 on saves this year with an ERA of 0.54. He posted the lowest season ERA (min 50 IP) in MLB history this season.

    I mean, we have Osuna who has also been amazing, but Zach Britton has been in a league of his own this year.

    Edit: And the Jays are also the first team in MLB history to make the playoffs with more than 30 bullpen losses.

    I'm aware of Britton's stats, but my point was that you're not going to win many games when you're down in the 9th, period. How good were the Mets closer's stats regular season last year? And he blew 2 saves I think?

    I could have bought an 11 pull and have 1000 gems left over, but all I got was this silly title.

    True, but you have to admit if you're in that position, come up to bat against Britton has to be pretty demoralising.

    Yeah, honestly I'd prefer if they strung several years of winning together.

    Brewers infielder Johnathan Villar became just the 5th player in MLB history with 19+ homers and 60+ stolen bases in a single season.

    There are a bunch of articles questioning Gibbons decision to go with Stroman over Liriano, based on how Liriano destroyed the O's last time out, how the O's all season long havent been getting shut down by LHP, and how Stroman got lit up by the O's this year.

    And I'm inclined to agree. Last year Stroman was a wildcard that no one had really seen, on top of the fact that due to being injured all year, he was as fresh as can be, the same cant be said for this year.

    I see both sides of the argument. On one hand, the O's have been dominated by LHPing all season. Liriano is a LHP and he made the O's look silly in his last start. Marcus got pumped in his last start against Baltimore. On the other hand, we can't really ignore Liriano's numbers pre-trade (hell, his August wasn't exactly spectacular either with us). Stroman had an excellent September and thrives under pressure (see: last year's ALDS).

    I'm wary of Gibbons' decision (by virtue of it being a Gibbons decision), but I also hope he has the sense to keep Marcus on a short leash and bring Liriano out of the pen if necessary, which could end up working to our advantage.

    Edit: And although I said I'm wary of Tillman, he has an ERA over 7 at the Skydome so who knows what the fuck will happen.
