Indians goal at this point is basically to make Chapman enter the game
Dave Cameron
10:45
Pretty much.
Matt
10:46
I'm not sure why but Wilsons twitchyiness is very noticeable and seems to go from annoying to endearing every so often

10:46
was Chapman throwing or just stretching?
Dave Cameron
10:46
Throwing.
This is dumb.
E
10:47
Please let chapman throw the 8th and 9th for some reason
Fat Kenny G
10:47
Bloop and a blast makes it a 2 run game though. Why is it dumb?
Dave Cameron
10:48
You're up 5 with 8 outs to go. You can get him up if it gets close, but otherwise, you're just wasting pitches from Game 7.
Chapman's Arm
10:48
Can't expect to throw tonight and then 3 innings tomorrow
Dave Cameron
10:49
Managers are getting a lot smarter about bullpen usage, but the desire to protect any lead is still too strong.
If you wouldn't use Chapman down 2 here (and they wouldn't), you shouldn't use him up 5.
ChatzMcGee
10:49
Would not want to be Chapman's bullpen catcher.
Bronn
10:49
To be fair, they're road team and their season ends if they lose.
Dave Cameron
10:50
You're not anywhere near losing.
Q-Ball
10:50
Holy Crap, here comes Chapman.
ChatzMcGee
10:50
Well, no Chapman tomorrow then. Overthinking it Joe.
Eno Sarris
10:50
Bet he uses Chapman tomorrow too.
Cubs fan
10:51
I am very angry about this
Dave Cameron
10:51
Yeah, but he can't use Chapman as much tomorrow.
It's not about can he pitch tomorrow; it's about quantity.
You could have probably tried to get 9 outs from him tomorrow if he got tonight off.
Now? Maybe 6? Maybe?
The Walking Man

How happy is Francona right now?
Dave Cameron
10:51
Thrilled.
Andrew
10:52
I'm ok with this - Lester is going to be the multiple inning guy tomorrow.
Eno Sarris
10:52
Come in to start an inning, no baserunners.
E
10:53
How do we know he doesn't bring him in to squash this inning then take him out?
Dave Cameron
10:53
You still burned him warming up.
Indians getting to not use Miller, while Chapman pitches, is best case scenario loss for Cleveland.
Eno Sarris
10:54
IS HE LIMPING
Dave Cameron
10:54
He is a terrible defender.
bob
10:55
Out
Paul G.
10:55
He's out though.
Dave Cameron
10:55
What a beautiful camera shot.
Tyler
10:55
I guess this increases the odds of Lester in game 7
Dave Cameron
10:55
100% chance of Lester tomorrow.
Alfonso
10:56
Worst case scenario, Chapman hurt for one out ahead of game 7.
Dave Cameron
10:56
He'd have to have blown out ACL to not pitch tomorrow.
bob
10:56
Maybe the limping saves maddon from himself.
