LOVED that attempted hidden ball trick by Lindor

What percent of the time do the 2016 cubs win a 7 game series against the 2016 Indians?
Carson Cistulli
9:20
I think roughly two-thirds of them. I mean, starting at 0-0.
And by "I think," I mean "I think that's what I remember the sophisticated model projecting."

what are they chanting at Bauer?
Carson Cistulli
9:21
Merely reminding him of his name.

Announcers keep talking about advancing the runner with productive outs. That's pretty well-established to be bunk, right?
Carson Cistulli
9:22
Well, two things. One, just getting extra-base hits all the time is better. But two, it's quite possible that so-called "productive outs" might be part of the mystery effect that allows teams to outperform their BaseRuns records.

would Drone Strike be an inappropriate nickname for bauer
Eric A Longenhagen
9:22
Not precise enough for that.
Harthan

Is there a worse trend in baseball than the "Cueto" chant going mainstream
Carson Cistulli
9:23
It would actually be pretty great if all the Cubs fans were cheering "Cueto" instead.
Queen of Lesbanistan
9:23
This inning is really droning on now
Carson Cistulli
9:24
Clevinger up in bullpen.
Which everyone here probably knew five minutes ago.
So the appearance of Andrew Miller is NOT imminent, appears.
9:25
Addison Russell with a 60-foot single to third base.
Rizzo scores.
Cubs up.
Eric A Longenhagen
9:25
I had a very jailbroken 4.00 on Russell there.

Productive outs > unproductive outs. Also, productive outs actually increase the "Clutch" stat, so they may help teams beat their base runs expectations.

How many chatters would need to submit something ridiculous for you guys to believe it happens?
Eric A Longenhagen
9:27
It's happened a lot already but this isn't our first Slow-deo
Nelson
9:27
Why is Carson doing play by play?
Carson Cistulli
9:27
I have no idea what I'm doing?
B
9:28
Did that swing look checked to you guys?
Michael J. Scott
9:28
I think he went
Zack
9:28
He went
Eric A Longenhagen
9:29
It did but on the slow-mo I thought it could go either way.
Carson Cistulli
9:29
A good outcome here would just be Baez swinging at only strikes.
Or bunting perfectly down third-base line.
r. waddell
9:30
Surprised Bauer's still in the game?
Eric A Longenhagen
9:30
Miguel Montero is psyched about that bunt.
Carson Cistulli
9:30
Leverage is highest of game so far, I'd image. Bases loaded, only one out.
Eric A Longenhagen
9:30
Ross was just referred to as El Abuelito on my broadcast.
Carson Cistulli
9:30
Although, you can adjust leverage for batter, hypothetically. Ross makes it less dangersous.
9:31
*dangerous.
