Roberto Perez is the new Jim Leyritz.
Dave Cameron
11:34
Right.
Especially with Miller limited tomorrow, you sit Allen now and try to get 2 from him tomorrow.
Paul Swydan
11:34
Jim Leyritz, for those who don't remember. In the postseason, .213/.319/.607 - 8 homers in 72 PA.

Dave - just put :-) at the end of every snarky comment
Zock jr

I mean, that was impressive, but it really didn't add too much WPA, yeah?
Dave Cameron
11:36
Yeah, which is one of the reasons why WPA is better for telling stories than evaluating players.

Perez with the 2 HR, 4 RBI 0.08 WPA night

Had Perez as backup catcher on my fantasy team much of the year. Don't know if I got 2 HR from him all season.

Roberto Perez the new Carlos Beltran

What does a game one win do for the Indians chances in the series as a whole?

Fun Fact: Roberto Perez was the catcher who ended Terrance Gore's historic SB streak http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/terrance-gore-is-human-after-all/

Jim Leyritz at least had a reputation as a reasonably decent power hitter.
Paul Swydan
11:39
Fine, fine, maybe a bit of an exaggeration. But Leyritz is definitely the guy I thought of first.
Dave Cameron
11:39
Allen in.
11:40
Bah and humbug.
Paul Swydan
11:40
Nice of FOX to televise the game around all those ads.
Dave Cameron
11:40
I don't like this. Especially if he ends up throwing 20+.
Paul Swydan
11:40
Probably demanded/begged to be in after getting warm?
Dave Cameron
11:41
Doubt it. Just easier for manager to stick with the plan.
Brandon
11:41
of course if he only tosses 10 pitches the decision doesn't look that bad
Dave Cameron
11:41
It's still pointless.
Bryan Shaw can get 3 outs before he gives up 6 runs.
JC
11:42
Stick Ryan Merritt out there at this point
Ben
11:42
I can get 3 outs before 6 runs
StackedDeck
11:42
Literally anyone else could've gotten 3 outs without giving up 6 runs
Paul Swydan
11:42
If only they had committed to Shaw when they were up 3 and trusted all-time clutch hitter Roberto Perez to come through with the big hit.
JC
11:43
Oh good we're complaining about younger players
Dave Cameron
11:43
Yeah, getting to third down by six in the 9th would have been super important.
Zonk
11:43
Would you continue to play Schwarber if you are the Cubs? Did he look "good enough"?
Paul Swydan
11:44
At least good enough to DH/PH.
Alfrz
11:44
Just what I was thinking. His run means nothing.
jwes
11:44
bat flips by contreras when you're down 6-0, one out in the 9th...
Dave Cameron
11:44
Criticize the bat flip all you want, but the extra base there was meaningless.
He cost his team nothing but not running.
Uncle Jimbo
11:44
That is not a read a hitter needs to make. There is no reason not to run. Just get in the habit of running.
S
11:44
It's still poor form
brendan
11:44
it's not about costing his team, it's about how stupid he looks
