Will Jason Heyward ever start a game this series?
Craig Edwards
4:04
If he didn't start the first two games, not sure what would change the situation for the rest of the series. He's a defensive replacement at this point.

super pumped, ws live chats are the highlight of my year
Craig Edwards

I'm both skeptical and flattered. Skattered?
Bork

I like tradition, and it's Cubs tradition to not win. So go Indians!
Craig Edwards
4:06
Both teams have tradition on their side in that sense.

Will Bauer get deeper into a ballgame than against Toronto? :-)
Craig Edwards
4:06
One would think.

Did Miller get over extended last night or is he good to go again tonight?
Craig Edwards
4:07
Yes and yes
Jeff Sullivan

Hello friends! Hello Craig!
Craig Edwards
4:08
I think Miller isn't likely to be as good tonight as last night, but could go for a batter or two.
Hello Jeff!
Nah
4:08
When I think about second basemen, I think about little guys usually. Is there any reason for that?
Jeff Sullivan
4:08
I think I saw something earlier about how Miller could max out at 1 inning
Craig Edwards
4:09
Historically, similarly situated players could play either 2nd or 3rd. The bigger guy went to 3rd, smaller guy to 2nd.
Big C
4:10
Shwarber looked good last night. Any chance he playes the field once the series goes to chi?
Craig Edwards
4:10
It wouldn't surprise me if he started a game or 2 in Wrigley.
Stephen
4:10
I'm rooting for the Cubs, because I want the series to stay close as long as possible
Craig Edwards
4:10
This is a good opinion.
Jeff Sullivan
4:11
I think they're still waiting on doctor clearance for Schwarber to field
Two things to think about today:
1) Did Cubs overreact to Bauer's "reverse splits"?
2) Is Bauer going to get that two-seamer working the inside edge against the lefties he sees?
4:12
Good, odd-looking hit for Bryant. The umpire looked like a defender
Big C
4:12
Any agreement with starting Contreras over montero considering arrietas success with montero?
Jeff Sullivan
4:13
I never know if I'm supposed to answer when Craig submits a question!
Craig Edwards
4:13
Maddon has several times during the playoffs picked offense over defense when it has seemed like the offense is struggling. This is a continuation on that theme. Montero is a good framer, Contreras better against the run. I think choosing to emphasize the run game is fair against Cleveland. Not sure how tied to Montero Arrieta is.
Jeff Sullivan
4:13
I feel like I would rather start Montero here and have Contreras available later for a potential replacement or high-leverage PH apperance
Matt L
4:14
Any chance we see Salazar tonight for long relief if Bauer doesn't do well?
Jeff Sullivan
4:14
Definitely. Or tomorrow. With Francona saying all the starters will be going on short rest, that's where Salazar could find his usefulness
*Game 3
Craig Edwards

Jeff-I think you should answer any questions you have an answer to. I'm sure the rest here would agree.
Jeff Sullivan
4:14
I don't want to step on any toes :(
Really I don't want to step on anything
4:15
And the Indians are trailing!
