$237 million payroll and they don't have a starter for game 5???

Let's see multi-inning start on the 14th then for some dumb reason, the 8th inning on the 17th, and then multi-inning start on the 20th. I know I'm just looking at this from a man-of-the-people point of view, but if I suddenly inherit control of the Dodgers, I'm firing Dave Roberts.

Tonight's starters, appraised by Kate Preusser at BP --

The Starting Pitchers:

Some aces look like Max Scherzer: imposingly tall, strung with muscles like barbed wire in a way that suggests they consume nothing more than the blood of their enemies and pure uncut rage, maybe with a bonus superhero-type quirk like heterogenous eyes or telekinesis. And some look like Logan Webb: gingery pale and squashy-faced, with the kind of barrel-chested, short-legged build that suggests a bit character from a period piece: the good-natured stevedore, the bumbling bobby, the milkman’s son. Understandably, Webb’s utter dominance over his in-state rivals infuriates Dodgers fans and their expectations for what a leading man should look like. Adding to this frustration, after Webb spent all season sankin’ sinkers and slangin’ sliders for a bunch of weak contact, he busted out his third pitch in Game 1 to throw a season-high 38 changeups to offer the Dodgers a one-way ticket to Whiff City. What will he do as an encore? Probably more of the same: filling up the bottom of the zone while occasionally dotting fastballs at the top for swinging strikes, coaxing weak contact and whiffs while getting ahead in the count. The Dodgers are normally a patient-hitting team but can try to jump on Webb early in counts before he can get to his off-speed, as some of their hitters did in the last meeting between these two teams, but they’ll need to get the ball off the ground to find success in that approach.

Webb is just 24 and will become the youngest Giants pitcher ever to make a postseason start in a winner-take-all game; he’ll be opposed by Julio Urías, himself just a handful of months older than Webb and the current holder of the record for the youngest player to start a postseason game in the modern era. Like Webb, Urías also doesn’t look the part of the traditional ace–more Clark Kent than Superman–but is also excellent at suppressing hard contact and collecting whiffs both on his off-speed pitches and with an ability to dot the top of the zone with mid-90s heat. Last time out, he was able to bait the Giants into ugly half-swings and weak flyouts by spotting pitches right at the edges of the zone; he’ll attempt to lull San Francisco’s formidable lineup into a similarly soporific state. For all the high-stakes drama swirling around this game, the mound at Oracle Park promises to be the calm eye in the center of the storm…at least until the bullpens get involved.

So there it is -- a 20-game winner!

49,705 in Dodger Stadium on a perfect October night watch Julio pitch into the seventh against the Brewers, allowing a hit, two walks and one run, striking out seven.

While they were still showering, the Dodgers received the astounding news that the Giants succumbed in the bottom of the ninth to the Diamondbacks.

If the Dodgers win today and the Giants lose, the two teams play Game 163 in San Francisco tomorrow.

It's okay, Julio. Keith Law wouldn't have voted for Whitey either.

National League Cy Young

1. Zach Wheeler, RHP, Philadelphia
2. Corbin Burnes, RHP, Milwaukee
3. Max Scherzer, RHP, LA Dodgers/Washington
4. Walker Buehler, RHP, LA Dodgers
5. Brandon Woodruff, RHP, Milwaukee

See the MVP discussion for why I put Wheeler above Burnes despite the latter’s big edge in FIP and fWAR. Burnes’s innings total would be the lowest ever to win a Cy Young Award in a full season of baseball, which isn’t in and of itself a dealbreaker — that bar is likely to continue to drop as the nature of starting pitching continues to change — but is a factor when you have a pitcher pitching at nearly the same level with a 41-inning advantage. It’s really down to those two, but Scherzer has yet again had a remarkable, Cy-worthy year, further burnishing what was already a Hall of Fame resume.

Whitey Ford redux.

09.11: Julio Urias struck out seven batters across seven scoreless inningswith three hits and one walk allowed in a 3-0 win over the Padres on Friday. (Urias was brilliant in shutting down the Padres over seven innings on Friday. A walk and a base hit in the first inning would be the closest San Diego would get to scoring. Urias tossed 64-of-94 pitches for strikes and induced ten whiffs to strike out seven batters and finish with a 31 percent CSW rate (called strikes plus whiffs). The 25-year-old left-hander picked up his 17th win of the season to go with a 2.98 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 175 strikeouts over 163 1/3 innings. He'll take on the Diamondbacks in Arizona his next time out.)

Twirls six more masterful innings (two runs, four hits, no walks, seven strikeouts) for win No. 15. Where would the Dodgers -- or, for that matter, the Tanks in Doubt Wars -- be without him?

No. 13 with five scoreless. Dodgers 13, D'backs 0. Dodgers are +165 in run differential, Giants +119, Padres +93. Dodgers trail the Giants by three.

Depending on what happens in the collective bargaining (I am not optimistic), this is the last year you really, really want to win your division.

Julio Urias (P) LA - Jun. 10

Urias (9-2) picked up the win Thursday after holding the Pirates to three runs on six hits and no walks while striking out five over six innings.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Most of his damage came via a two-run long ball to Bryan Reynolds in the third inning. It was otherwise a strong outing with solid command for Urias, who did not issue any free passes for the sixth time this year. It's worth noting that the 24-year-old helped his own cause for the win by knocking in a bases-loaded, two-run single against Mitch Keller in the third inning.

Doesn't allow a baserunner until an infield hit in the sixth, by which time he had driven in three runs himself with two bingles and, just like that, the Dodgers are a half game up on the Giants after a sweep in San Francisco.

"Julio, he's a veteran big league pitcher now," said Dave Roberts.

"That was really fun," said Julio.
