I agree with Verlander here. Thoughts?
Justin Verlander Not A Big Fan Of Bullpens Deciding ALCS Game 6 Between Houston Astros, New York YankeesWithout competent fourth starters, both teams will have to rely on their bullpens in what amounts to the biggest game of the season. It's unprecedented in postseason history and highly reflective of the state of the game, said Houston's outspoken Verlander. https://www.forbes.com/sites/barrymbloom/2019/10/19/for-new-york-yankees-houston-astros-bullpens-will-decide-game-6-of-alcs/#34c22705276c

FINAL: Yankees 4, Astros 1— Jeff Passan (@JeffPassan) October 19, 2019
The Yankees win the first inning, 4-1. And the game, to stay alive in the ALCS.
15 consecutive zeroes after the first.
Yankee Stadium was alive tonight. Now New York needs two more in Houston, starting with the bullpen-vs.-bullpen battle of Game 6.
I think astros win this game, wouldnt be surprise if Yankees win though, but the under is the play for me in this one.70%
Yankees are now paddling upriver after dropping a game they desperately needed to win in Game 4. They now have to take down the two best pitchers in the AL and I dont see that happening the way they are playing. They cant seem to find a timely hit or come up with a key play to turn things on defense. They have actually been sloopy on the defensive side and it has cost them late. I dont love their bullpen as this series goes on and they get more exposure. I think that verlander will turn in another respectable start and give them 6+ quality innings. The Astros bullpen has been pretty solid since the game 1 disaster and should give them a great opportunity to close this series out. Astros -1 here
I don't see the capitulating Yankees putting up much of a fight tonight and you simply can't bet against Verlander in the post-season. I think we see the coup de grace head shot tonight. Stro's in 5.70%
The Astros season-long rallying cry has been to take it back, and now the bubbly is on ice as they hope to pop corks in enemy territory and punch a ticket to their second World Series in three seasons when the Yankees host Game 5 of the https://www.mlb.com/news/astros-yankees-2019-alcs-game-5-preview

I'm going Houston here with Greinke on the mound and a rested bullpen.
