Looks like only 6 of Rivera's 96 WS appearances were in 7th inning: http://www.baseball-reference.com/players/gl.cgi?id=riverma01&t=p&year=0&post=1.
None after 1996.
He became closer in 1997.

Can Schwarber play CF?
Eric A Longenhagen
10:55
Based on what I saw from him in AFL he shouldn't play anywhere
Carson Cistulli
10:56
Heyward could slider over to CF, if Fowler has to leave.
Almora probably, too.
Actually. Even Zobrist probably wouldn't be a bad fit.
Jon
10:57
Probably go Almora for D?
Carson Cistulli
10:57
Yeah. He and Heyward would have that area pretty well covered.
5 Run Homer
10:57
Fowler got lucky on that steal
Banana pudding
10:57
Baez woulda had that tag on that steal ??

i guess dexter's toe is ok

Interesting call on the SB after the seeming injury.
Emil Cioran
10:58
I would like to see Schwarber in CF. It would allow the world to see that all human endeavor is folly.
Carson Cistulli
10:58
Schwarber's facial hair is sufficient, no?
Stone
10:59
Is it just me, or is Cody Allen a good pitcher?
Carson Cistulli
10:59
You crazy for this one, Stone.
Abe
11:00
Good pitcher? These pitches aren't even close to the plate.
Spry
11:02
Schwarber coming up

SCHWARBER ALERT SCHWARBER ALERT
Carson Cistulli
11:03
No. No Schwarber!
Abe
11:03
SCHWARBER SITTING DOWN!
Man

Into the doctrine of which of the world's major religions would swinging at a 3-0 pitch fit most comfortably? Please don't answer this question.

Unscientific poll results: almost precisely two-thirds of respondents believe Aroldis Chapman will throw fewer than 45 innings.

What are you drinking tonight, Carson?
Carson Cistulli
11:06
Bota Box.
Abe
11:06
45 innings? We'd be here all night!
Guy
11:06
I'd certainly hope that Chapman will throw fewer than 45 innings this game
Rob Manfred
11:06
Is this game exciting enough for you, fangraphs?
Eric A Longenhagen
11:07
No IA draft, suit.
Carson Cistulli
11:07
So, yes: 45 pitches, is the idea.
ChatzMcGee
11:07
Well, there's only, pirobably 20 innings left in the series max, it'll be hard to get to 45.
Tucker
11:08
Which Bota?
Carson Cistulli
11:08
The one in the kitchen.
Hal
11:08
Ohhhh, that's not great by Chapman
peachesnnuts
11:08
Gold glover Aroldis Chapman
Eric A Longenhagen
11:09
PFPs tomorrow, 9am
Carson Cistulli
11:10
I'll assume that Chapman doesn't have to do a lot of covering first in a game situation.
