Holy cow

I don't think you can do that anymore?
Eno Sarris

Hah, after those smoked balls a 78 mph ball straight up in the air (xBA .158) drives one in.

Catcher was blocking the plate
JC
8:19
Did he give Zobrist a path to the plate? Or am I misunderstanding the rule?
Ryan
8:20
Looked like he wanted to slide

someone has to warming up right?
Dave Cameron
8:21
No, you have to get some innings from Tomlin tonight.
This isn't a must-win for Cleveland.
If you lose, and you save Miller/Allen, well, you got a great chance tomorrow.

even with manship, mcallister, clevenger, merritt....
Dave Cameron
8:21
They aren't better than Tomlin.
Eno Sarris
8:21
I know some pitchers that want the team error to exist haha.
The Hamburglar
8:22
Tomlin seems to be hanging some of these curveballs

Cubs need to keep adding on so they can save Chapman for multiple innings in Game 7
Eno Sarris
8:22
Difference between a hanging curve and a curve thrown in the zone for a called strike is super hard to discern.
Dave Cameron
8:23
I think a blowout is actually better for CLE than a close loss.
Elbo
8:23
Why are they carrying all of those non-used pitchers instead of extra position players? No one worth adding to the roster?
Dave Cameron
8:23
No; they don't have enough good position players as is.
The Hamburglar
8:23
Indians still need to be patient with Arrieta? Force him to walk guys?
Dave Cameron
8:24
Given his stuff, no real reason to help him get you out. Take until you have to swing.
Eno Sarris
8:24
Especially since the slider command hasn't been there this year.
Lee
8:24
Dave, are you considering the psychological effect of a blowout on such shrinking violets as MLB players
Eno Sarris
8:24
They'd never get over it
Erik
8:24
Is August becoming a player or an owner?
Eno Sarris
8:25
Blew out his shoulder playing whiffleball with us so not that.
britishcub
8:25
so best scenario for cubs is a 3-0 win from here? make indians use guys they may not otherwise?
Dave Cameron
8:25
Maybe more like 4-0 with a late add-on that lets them save Chapman.
Guest
8:26
A close game causes Cubs to use good arms -- blow it out and play a close game tomorrow against double-short rest kluber
Dave Cameron
8:27
Cubs get Lester as a reliever tomorrow. Saving pen not as necessary for them.
Anthony
8:27
How big does the lead have to be in say, the 7th, that allows the Cubs to use Grimm and Edwards instead of Chapman/Rondon? 5? 6?
Dave Cameron
8:27
Rondon's the mopup guy now.
But probably 5+
Chalupa Batman
8:28
Do you agree with Rondon being the mopup guy now?
Dave Cameron
8:28
He's been atrocious since August. Hard to imagine he's healthy.
Eno Sarris
8:28
Hasn't been the same really since he came back from injury.
Lord above
8:28
Any chance we see Montgomery tonight? Feel like there's no scenario where he pitches tomorrow and he can eat innings.
Dave Cameron
8:28
Yeah, I think he's reliever #1 out of the pen tonight.
Lester makes him irrelevant tomorrow.
