World Series Game 5 open thread

Bullpen management will be a topic of conversation.

MLB: Washington Nationals at Los Angeles Dodgers Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

I don’t say “must win” very often, but this is a “must win” game for the Dodgers. After their thrilling 18-inning win on Friday in Game 3, they blew a 4-0 lead late in Game 4 and now find themselves down 3-1 in this series, on the edge of elimination.

Dave Roberts and Alex Cora have both faced some scrutiny for their bullpen management, and expect that to continue, even with a solid pitching matchup tonight. David Price - who warmed up multiple times the last two nights and made 13 pitches in relief on Friday, will start against Game 3 pinch-hitter Clayton Kershaw.

The game is 7:15 CT on FOX.
