NLCS Game One Discussion Thread, Phillies at Dodgers, October 15, 2009

New, 1451 comments

HERE WE GO AGAIN! The fifth NLCS matchup between the storied Dodgers and somewhat fondly recalled Phillies, and the second in two seasons, begins tonight in Los Angeles.

Young lefties Cole Hamels and Clayton Kershaw face off. And all of these games will be on at reasonable times! Hurrah!

The key with Kershaw is to make him throw pitches and draw walks. He walked 91 in 171 innings, but only surrendered 119 hits. Take the free passes, then knock them in. Simple, right?

Stealing this game would be huge. Is Cole up to the challenge?

Discuss the game below.
