The bats awoke just in time to get a split in LaLa land. I believe they will remain awake during the next three games in Houston. In my mind there is just one big question going into tonight’s game #3 with the Dodgers…
Is he healthy or not?
I love watching McCullers pitch. I think he is a real talent. But he is young and, in my mind, untrustworthy on the question of his health status. I mean that in the most complimentary way.
He is a young, competitive dude who has an incredible opportunity in front of him….to be a starting pitcher in a World Series on a talent stacked roster with a real chance to win it all. I cannot imagine a scenario where he tells Hinch he can’t go tonight.
I listened to his post game interview after Game 7 against the Yankees….and it was not the voice or the words of a guy who was going to bow out if given the mound.
Hinch I trust. If he says he’s ready I’m rolling with Hinch…
…but that doesn’t mean I’m not nervous.
