why have a pitch count on chapman. he's a FA after this season. let him throw 100 if that's what it takes and he's effective.
Jeff Sullivan
7:26
He probably doesn't get to 100 if he's effective
Craig Edwards
7:26
mostly an entertaining game.
Jeff Sullivan
7:27
I think I have a slight Cleveland bias just because I think they're less likely to be right back in a season

Smoltz on Fowler, "When he gets on multiple times or scores twice, their record is incredible" As opposed to all those players whose teams never win when they score twice
Jeff Sullivan
7:28
Those are always such silly statistics
Belted
7:28
How rare is it that the best team in baseball actually wins the WS?
Jeff Sullivan
7:28
"The team that scores first wins (x%) of the time." No shit!
Craig Edwards
7:28
fairly rare.
Jeff Sullivan
7:28
Fowler looks safe there
Fred
7:29
is that actually johnforthegiants or someone just doing a parody
FreehanSolo
7:29
Both teams are sportsing as hard as they can but in the end one team will sports harder
Jeff Sullivan
7:29
No way to know but then does it really matter
The Hamburglar

Given that Miller hasn't been overly effective, if the game stays 6-3, Francona doesnt get as much scrutiny for not pulling Kluber earlier?
Craig Edwards
7:30
nope-still scrutiny. most people will be talking about the cubs though.
Jeff Sullivan
7:30
Here's Allen now to pitch. Miller allows four hits and two runs in 2.1
Cam
7:30
I like how grit, toughness and "wanting it more" has been the difference tonight.
Hal
7:31
Zero snark, johnforthegiants' commitment to trolling is honestly inspirational
Craig Edwards
7:31
that's the difference every night. It just changes a lot.
Munenori Kawasaki

Is Sam Holbrook not catching more flack because he's been bad for both teams?
Jeff Sullivan
7:31
Part that, part just not focusing on the strike zone in a historic Game 7 in progress
Ned Yost
7:32
Other than Bill Murray, overall a weak cast of stars supporting the Cubbies, no?
Craig Edwards
7:32
For stars, its kind of hard to beat Murray and Eddie Vedder.
Jeff Sullivan
7:32
And Chris Chelios!
Lynk's Disease
7:33
Am I the only one that finds the lack of Otero surprising this series?
Jeff Sullivan
7:33
Otero hasn't looked good when he's pitched in the playoffs. Has been hit around
Craig Edwards
7:33
given how well salazar pitched last night, kind of surprised not to see him more.
Stinky Pete
7:34
Surprised to see Allen over Shaw here, or do you use your biggest weapon to try and set down the Cubs best bats?
Jeff Sullivan
7:34
Use the best guys now. Shaw will pitch if and when he's needed next
Johnny Baseball
7:35
Anybody know what is the most watched MLB game ever?
Craig Edwards
7:35
i think it is royals phillies in early 80s but not positive.
Hildebeast
7:35
quick check of his player page shows bryant is actually a really good base runner. like top 10 in the league. at 6'5" 230lbs. Jesus.
Jeff Sullivan
7:35
A lot of that comes from his never grounding into double plays!
Lunch
7:36
So all anyone wanted to talk about before the game was which reliever would get which innings. Now we have a two run wild pitch and a homer by a 70 year old back up catcher. Makes sense.
Scott
7:36
Skip and Shannon is literally what they'd show me until the end of time in hell.
Moog
7:36
1986 Game 7 was the highest rated according to Wikipedia.
Lee
7:36
This game is evidence that shrinking the strike zone actually makes games longer, right? Two of these innings had five-ten minutes tacked on thanks to non-strikeouts
Jeff Sullivan
7:36
Yes, more balls = more offense = more time
Ben Olson
7:36
Craig, if you could take Heyward on the Cardinals still for what they offered last offseason, would you?
Craig Edwards
7:37
yes, but it is a completely different reality. Cubs changed his swing and Heyward got hurt.
