Different view but of course totally fine and appreciated. To me, while a loss tonight of course doesn't mean an LDS series loss (which the Reds would still be very likely to win), it has implications for the path beyond to LCS and, hopefully, WS.
Here's a partial answer to the "why Arroyo" question if anyone else is interested and hadn't seen it. With apologies to the mods if not cool to link to other sites here (?). Didn't see that in the rules, which I tried to review fully before posting yesterday for the first time.
