Anthony DeSclafani starts tomorrow’s game.
Walker Buehler on short rest in Game 4 (2.05 ERA at home). #Dodgers get to DeSclafani & hold on to force Game 5.
LA will have their Postseason LEGEND Julio Urías on the mound in G5 vs. Webb. Webb is a beast, but is he going 7.2 shutty again? Down but not out. Let's go!#RepeatLA
Game 4 lineup: La Stella 2B, Ruf 1B, Crawford SS, Posey C, Bryant RF, Wade Jr. LF, Longoria 3B, Yastrzemski CF, DeSclafani RHP
Game 4 starter for Giants: DeSclafani
The Dodgers have chased DeSclafani with two outs in the second inning. Half of the first 10 batters reached base.
Getting a lot of tweets about Johnny Cueto.
Why DeSclafani over Cueto? Cueto was coming off an elbow injury and wasn't built up to start a game.
Why young relievers over Cueto? Giants bet on young guys with better stuff. I don't think the decisions were extremely difficult.
Updated Anthony DeSclafani 2021 numbers:
Dodgers: 7 starts, 7.53 ERA, .319/.393/.504 against
Everyone else: 25 GS, 2.37 ERA, .209/.251/.329
I’m seeing people criticize #ResilientSF for choosing DeSclafani over Cueto. That’s rewriting recent history. Cueto hasn’t completed five innings since 8/8 and DeSclafani had a 2.25 ERA since the start of September. It didn’t work, but I’m not blaming the #SFGiants process.
If you don't know Anthony DeSclafani, pay close attention...he embodies the same level of spareness and mediocrity as the Rangers and is bound to wind up here someday
The Dodgers have chased Anthony DeSclafani from this game.
So I think the conclusion is that the Giants can only win these NLDS games when they shut out the Dodgers. They are not doing it in a DeSclafani start. They are not doing it twice with Webb. #DodgersInFive

Excited to watch CN’s Anthony Desclafani make his playoff debut on TNT/TBS. First pitch 5 minutes away! https://t.co/xBq279tII5
After DeSclafani's bad start to this game, the Giants needed a heroic effort from the bullpen. It didn't happen. #SFGiants
Start DeSclafani in Game 5
Those "DeSclafani vs LA" & "Buehler vs SF" games often went just like that this season.
Quality start tonight by DeSclafani-Buehler. Six innings, three runs.
pulling desclafani looks like a worse decision every inning lol
Giants are setup pretty well against other teams given that DeSclafani is basically a front-line starter against every other team.
I'm still new to baseball, but ya'll know how I am with the analytics & all that, which is how I make money on fantasy baseball.
Anyway, my question is, it seemed obvious Desclafani was about to get lit up, did the Giants have no other options?
Ya'll basically gave them the win
There come a point where someone needs to take a bullet. If you take@out Desclafani in the second, you can’t bring in guys for an out or two. Someone needs to suck up some outs and innings.
Desclafani needs to go bro this dude is absolute buns…
Leone, DeSclafani, Dickerson, Ruf…
Cueto would have been better then littell or desclafani, disco sucks against the Dodgers and wasn't a good option ever. I saw this coming the entire time. Hope we can get some runs going. Also Dickerson needs to be off the roster so there's an open spot for a pitcher.
I’m on the do not resign Desclafani train rn.
The Apple dictation can pick up Anthony DeSclafani and it can also tweet for me, so it's going to be a rough month for all of you.
Wasn’t banger day like we’ve been having but WAS profitable & that’s what counts.
Buehler u5.5 1.0u 💵
