Even so, this is the damn World Series. Cover the base!
Carson Cistulli
11:12
Well, it's not a terrible counterargument. A bit moot at this point, however.

Wow Rajai stole that on the pitcher.
Lou Sassel
11:12
Stole it right off Chapman
Eric A Longenhagen
11:13
Unbelievable jump
Ricky
11:14
Rajai Davis doesn't care fore speed and aging curves

Is Jason kipnis trying to get out because he's secretly pulling for the cubs
twb
11:15
swung at balls three and four
Eric A Longenhagen
11:17
Four straight FBs away from Kipnis.
Hal
11:19
How much do you think what we've seen from Contreras behind the place affected the decision to steal there?
Eric A Longenhagen
11:19
Ran on Chapman again
Carson Cistulli
11:20
Strike one in this PA was not an exercise in pitch-framing. Worked anyway, though.
wow
11:21
NOT A STRIKE

Would love to see Chapman hit in the 9th. Or trying to, at least.
Carson Cistulli
11:22
Chapman's at 31 pitches, looks like. Beginning the 9th wouldn't be crazy at this point.
Jason
11:22
You guys are nuts...perfect pitch
Leroy Jigaboo
11:22
Check pitch f/x, strike
Stone

It would be fun if they stopped the game periodically and said, "This next one pitch will be an exercise in pitch-framing and nothing else."
Carson Cistulli
11:24
So, probably multiple innings for Allen at this point.
JA
11:26
no one throwing in cubs pen

i didn't know Heyward could hit a ball that far.
5 Run Homer
11:26
Holy shit I thought Heyward just broke through
Spry
11:27
Miller not warming either
Carson Cistulli
11:27
Just saw the Heyward foul... which left the entire park.

heyward!
Russ
11:29
Heyward had a lot of good swings that AB.
Carson Cistulli
11:30
A note about Heyward: his problem (typically) hasn't been making hard contact, it's been elevating it. This year, he seemed to address the latter concern, but mostly just effed with the former.
The Dude
11:30
So Chapman gets to hit....pumped. He had 107 mph exit velo on his last batted ball.
Dan
11:30
Would baseball be better or worse if to retire a baserunner you could just throw the ball at them?
Carson Cistulli
11:31
Might be a tough sell at the youth level.
11:33
Eric A Longenhagen
11:33
Pretty sure I'd be hitting Schwarber here
Carson Cistulli
11:33
And then... go to Rondon?
Eric A Longenhagen
11:33
Yeah
Connecting...
