Why the fuck would Luke Raley get an at bat in the playoffs?? Dave Roberts is the dumbest manager in baseball, bar none.

Dave "Bad Decisions" Roberts has lost this series by sending Barnes to hit in the most important at-bat of the game.

Congratulations to the 2021 National League champions, the Atlanta Braves.

Did they really do a 2nd bullpen day in a row in the playoffs?
The Giants' nerds normally stack their starting lineup with righties against lefty pitchers, so the Dodgers' nerds countered with the opener gimmick to try to get the Giants to burn some of their lefty bats before Urias came in, but Urias was always going to get the bulk of the innings.

Today was a bullpen day since neither Max, Urias, nor Buehler was available. Gonsolin could have been the bulk inning guy, but he got the short leash.

The bullpen day worked out today for the Dodgers, so they are going to bullpen Game 6 too and then save Buehler and Scherzer for Game 7.

Dave Roberts is terrible...who else could do so little with so much? He loves throwing starters out there in relief, regardless of that pitcher's experience, how many innings they've thrown that year, and who else is available in relief. He really should cede the right to make pitching changes to another coach the way Matt Nagy needed to give up play-calling duties.

As a Padres fan, however, I love that Roberts is managing in the NL West.

As much I rip Dave Roberts and that very likely that a more experienced manager could have gotten out of this puto team more than just 1 title, the game came down to runners on 2nd and 3rd with no out and can't get one damn run in. It was outrageous to see but not at all surprising given their ever frustrating feast-or-famine approach. I also enjoyed how everybody at the end tried to hit 2-run game-tying homers with nobody on base.

It's also possible had we used Not-Max Scherzer to try to get Brandon Crawford, Kris Bryant, and LaMonte Wade out, our season would've ended right there.

Congrats to Kingdom . Terry McGuirk was remiss to not also mention Tommy Hanson's contributions from above.
