This is super interesting!

Schwarber better hit a HR cause he aint making it to first.
Paul Swydan
8:39
His back pocket is untucked.

Honestly, I saw much more media coverage of Schwarber than Kluber, Lester, Lindor, Arrieta, Rizzo, or anyone else--he really is the biggest story, at least so far.

That swing was... not close.

I love that Theo sits down in the stands on the road
Paul Swydan
8:40
Me too. Hoyer was right next to him too. And Macleod is often with them as well.

Schwarber has 5 more plate appearances this year than Raul Mondesi Jr. had before last year's Series
Sgt. Pepper
8:41
"He was running without any discomfort", well without anymore discomfort than when he normally runs
Dave Cameron
8:41
That's only if you ignore the minors.
Mondesi played the whole year, just not in the big leagues.
5 Run Homer
8:41
Aw man
CamdenWarehouse
8:41
He looked kinda bad
alpha
8:41
he didn't look awful
Dave Cameron
8:42
Come to a consensus, you two!
(I don't think it's possible for us to not think a player looks bad while striking out, generally)
Tyler
8:42
He looked average
Paul Swydan
8:42
Swing didn't look great, but the plate discipline looked OK.
Dave Cameron
8:42
I would bet the exact same swing would have "looked better" if it had made contact.
8:43
Our ability to discern good or bad swing is almost entirely determined by the result.
Paul Swydan
8:43
Yeah, definitely.

Corey Kluber > anonymous pitching machine
Paul Swydan
8:43
Big, if true.
filihok
8:44
Are we worried that his swing's not there, or that his timing/recognition are off?
Dave Cameron
8:44
The latter
Paul Swydan
8:44
They should make life model decoy pitching machines, like ones that can turn into having Corey Klubers or Roger Clemens or Randy Johnson's repertoire, just like the training robots in Ultimate Spider-Man.
Sorry, we watch a lot of Ultimate Spider-Man in my house.
Dave Cameron
8:45
That two-seam is nasty.
5 Run Homer
8:45
Baez dude... right there
Dave Cameron
8:45
That was a painted corner.
alpha
8:45
But Joe Buck said it was down the middle
Dave Cameron
8:45
Don't listen to Joe Buck.
greg
8:46
How does Joe West keep on getting to work the World Series?
CamdenWarehouse
8:46
do I just press a button for another announcer?
Dave Cameron
8:46
Well you can hear his words without giving them credibility
Johnny Baseball
8:46
Canada gets to hear Matt Vasgersian and Buck Martinez
Paul Swydan
8:47
Chris Coghlan hasn't had a hit in almost a month - Sept. 27.
I'm here for the gangbang
8:47
You can always go SAP and have no idea what they're talking about
Harold Reynolds
8:47
To be fair, the camera angle is pretty bad
Sam N
8:47
I'd rather have Vasgersian than a taco...
