He was a UCLA guy, right, Longenhagen?
Eric A Longenhagen
8:15
Look it up.
(yes)
Carson Cistulli
8:15
Oh, cram it.

Eric, looking ahead to the NLDS, what do we make of Andrew Toles? Is he a big league regular or better?
anonymous

Any clues as to what the Giants-Mets pre-game articles will be about tomorrow afternoon?
Jeff Sullivan

Zach Britton
Will
8:17
Britton was only warming up in case we took the lead, it's Buck's MO unfortunately
Carson Cistulli
8:17
My feed is behind. How long has Zach Britton been in the game?
CamdenWarehouse
8:18
He hasnt
Jeff Sullivan

Adam Jones just covered a few dozen yards to take a hit away from Kevin Pillar. Why not play 11?
Carson Cistulli
8:18
The comment was *whimsical*, dude.
Eric A Longenhagen
8:18
On Toles: I think there's a chance but I'd be lying if I said I thought he'd keep up this pace forever.
Dan Uggla
8:19
Britton has thrown as many pitches in this game as I have.
Jeff Sullivan
8:19
Even Zach Britton is Dan Uggla
Might be why he's not pitching
Michelle
8:19
Thank you guys so much for doing this! I'm having a great time listening to your unique perspectives.
Jeff Sullivan
8:20
This comment makes me suspicious
Carson Cistulli
8:20
I don't think Jeff's perspectives are that unique.
Jeff Sullivan
8:20
My perspective that I like you is unique
Hal

What's the "smart" argument for not bringing in Britton in tie games on the road?
Jeff Sullivan
8:21
The "smart" argument would just be that he's used to pitching with a lead
Oblarg
8:22
Am I the only one who's shocked O'Day's elbow doesn't explode with his delivery? It looks like he's got a *lot* of torque on it, in a weird direction.
Jeff Sullivan
8:22
I cringe whenever I see any decent picture of a pitcher at release
Milton
8:22
Carson, for some reason ever since my dad started reading fangraphs consistently, he thinks Jeff is the funnier writer.
Eric A Longenhagen
8:22
Does your dad talk about me?
Moonraker
8:23
Sullivan, you should have been in the room when Smoak was signing that extension with Atkins
Jeff Sullivan
8:23
I'm legally not allowed to be in the same room as Justin Smoak
Eric A Longenhagen
8:24
Jones: 4.27
Jeff Sullivan
8:24
As expected, Liriano dominates. To the bottom of the 11th!
Canadian Border Agent
8:25
Mr. Britton couldn't pass through customs. Canada doesn't allow FIRE ARMS into the country.
Uncle Jimbo
8:25
I'm getting tired. Maybe we could pick up this game in the morning when everyone is well rested.
ChatzMcGee
8:25
.344 WPA for O'Day, dang.
Jeff Sullivan
8:25
Yeah, we should probably Wimbledon this
Carson Cistulli
8:25
Uncle Jimbo is using reason.
Jeff Sullivan
8:26
Brian Duensing before Zach Britton
what the actual fuck
CamdenWarehouse
8:27
Ubaldo warming up
joseph
8:27
Britton still not warming up
anonymous

You know what they say. Duensing before Britton, never been sicker.
