wth was that throw

Tailed on Perez pretty bad.

I've had Clevenger around 1.6 from the stretch. Looks like Cubs are willing to run on him despite Perez's arm strength.
Carson Cistulli

Eric, is there anything that causes a throw to tail like that? Like, anything systemic in a catcher?

Reminder that Roberto Perez was the killjoy who threw out Terrance Gore: http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/terrance-gore-is-human-after-all/

If you hold the ball too deep in your palm it tails sometimes, at least for me

Pronation I would think, just like throwing a two-seamer.
Eric A Longenhagen

Just release timing. At least that was the case on that throw. Sometimes catchers will stride open with the fron foot landing toward 3B and throws will tail but not Perez there.
Carson Cistulli

Yeah, the question of catcher release point seems like a whole different thing than for pitchers. Pitchers are basically in control of when they throw; catchers are reacting to different body positioning.

We have gone 5 innings without a reference to "Lester has trouble throwing to first."
Carson Cistulli
10:08
Hasn't been necessary, has it? That's one elegant solution to the problem.
10:09
Actually, Cleveland has had zero runners at first base, is what "research" proves.
Eric A Longenhagen

Okay, third time thru the order for Lester here. Seequencing to Davis was FB/Cut/Cut
Nick
10:09
probably b/c that's the first runner who made it to first

see, dodgers, that wasn't too hard now, was it?
Jordan
10:12
according to Darren Willman on Twitter, it was an 18.6 foot lead for Davis.
peachesnnuts
10:12
lmao according to Statcast he was 27 feet from 1st when Lester released the ball
Jeff
10:14
Cameraman doesn't even know how to handle his lead off second
Carson Cistulli
10:14
A wide-angle lens would be of some benefit now.
Of course, if Davis gets *too* far off, Lester can literally just run at him.
Seth
10:15
I really thought Lester was saving a perfect pick off move he's been secretly on for weeks for this game.
ChatzMcGee
10:16
Kevin Pillar would've caught that.
Um
10:16
Kevin Pillar would had that :^)

Eric A Longenhagen

Probably just good news for CHC that Fowler held Lindor to one base there.
Carson Cistulli

You people are jerks, but not I'm excited for what's about to happen.

The times you saw one set of footprints, that was David Ross carrying Jon Lester.
