Dodgers vs. Rays World Series Game 1 Chat, Tuesday at 5:11 p.m. on Fox

Howard Cole

[Updated: Final score: Dodgers 8, Rays 3. Clayton Kershaw the winner (1-0), Tyler Glasnow the loser (0-1). L.A. home runs by Mookie Betts (1) and Cody Bellinger (1). The Dodgers lead the World Series, one game to none.]

The World Series is upon us and that means an entirely new animal of game thread, or chat, if you will. A more important one, and you're going to need company as you sit nervously in front of the tube. This'll help with that.

Tuesday marks the first of a possible seven with the Tampa Bay Rays at Globe Life Field in Arlington, Texas. First pitch is at 5:11 p.m. PT on Fox.

Reader-participation game threads are posted in this space daily for every Dodgers contest that is telecast locally or nationally, including the postseason as long as the locals are in there. All of them. With yours truly as the discussion host.

I post a new game thread, along with the lineups and the most recent game's highlights in this space at least 40 minutes minutes prior to first pitch each night. So if you're looking for a reliable source for that information, you'll find it here.

Roberts couldn’t have left Baez in?

I'm surprised no one chimed in with a Roberts bullpen comment. I'll defend him tonight. At least, up to this point. Removed Kersh at the exact right time.

Mookie brings back memories of Maury Wills on the bases.

Mookie is underpaid.

Loving the Dodger's new double steal swagger. Thanks Mookie!

They obviously don't watch the Dodgers if they think Barnes is a better defensive catcher than Smith. Lazy reporting. All they would need to do is look up percentage of runners thrown out and percentage of pitches that get past them.

Glasnow is 6' 8". I thought he looked tall, but didn't think he was that tall.

Looks like they are going to pitch very carefully to Arozarena.

I’m already tired of the hype coming from Fox, Buck and Smoltz.

A popout. A double play and he's out of the inning next?

Kersh gives up a hit to the leadoff man on a 1-2 pitch.
