You and me on an island.
Andrew
9:10
Arrieta's job is now to save the rest of the bullpen
Dave Cameron
9:10
Yup.
Anthony
9:10
So is Chicago's win expectancy now >99%
Andrew
9:10
So who's the sacrificial lamb for Francona? Can McAllister eat 4 or 5 innings?
Dave Cameron
9:10
Merritt, probably.
JC
9:11
Who's got chat duties tomorrow, Dave?
Dave Cameron
9:11
Jeff.
JA
9:11
is there a clear MVP for either side as of now?
Bruce
9:11
Imagine paying a few grand for tickets tonight
Dave Cameron
9:12
Kluber for CLE
redstripe
9:12
Naquin for CHI
Harthan
9:12
Is there any argument that doesn't rely on the hindsight of how badly it played out for having gone to Ryan Merritt to start Game 5/Game 6?
Dave Cameron
9:12
No
Zmccoy
9:12
Yikes.
Cleveland Spiders
9:13
Naquin is complete garbage.
Dave Cameron
9:13
He was great for CLE this year.
But he's got some flaws.
Kimball
9:13
Eno, can you look into spin rate on short rest, too? Kershaw's nonexistent curve ball in NLCS #6 made me wonder...
Eno Sarris
9:13
Tiny tiny sample
Cubs fan
9:13
Arrieta needs to turn in to strike throwing arrietta to eat some innings
Dave Cameron
9:14
This is one of those times when it shows that pitchers can't really throw it where they want whenever they want.
Up 7-0, should just be pounding strikes.
Drew
9:14
So I assume Cleveland just doesn't have bars to watch games based on the crowds they have outside
Dave Cameron
9:15
It's 70 there; more fun to be outside.
The Hamburglar
9:15
Cleveland has a great bar scene
senpaisanto
9:15
would CG shutout be ideal from jake here?
Dave Cameron
9:15
Well, yeah.
The Hamburglar
9:15
Also, the Cavs game JUST ended. So thats why its extra crowded
Nietsniew
9:16
I know pitching to contact is generally stupid, but shouldn't arrieta do so to limit his pitch count so he can pitch longer?
Dave Cameron
9:16
Well you have to pitch to weak enough contact that you don't give up hits, because hits don't help your pitch count.
Eno Sarris
9:16
Which is a big problem with the contact thing to begin with.
Eric
9:17
If Jake were lifted after ~40 pitches could he be available tomorrow?
Dave Cameron
9:17
Not worth it.
Better to have the guys who don't have to pitch today because he goes long available instead.
Basho
9:17
Jake Arrietta
Pound them over the plate please.
No need to paint now.
Mike
9:18
To play devil's advocate, Naquin probably got reamed for not calling for it in the first inning, so I see him in the third waving his arms and screaming and Chisenhall just catches it. Some fault for Chisenhall too, I would think.
Eric
9:18
How can that be? Those pitches are worse than him. Use the worse ones when leading by 7.
Dave Cameron
9:18
The worse ones wouldn't be pitching on 0 days rest tomorrow.
