Who will be vilified if Cubs lose?
Elbo

Did you know the Cubs haven't won since 1908?
Steve

Apparently Chapman is just going to pitch until he dies.

How do you guys feel about that bunt call?
Jeff Sullivan
8:49
I don't like two-strike bunts, especially by guys who don't bunt very much. Which I assume Baez does not
And THAT was a misleading camera angle
Craig Edwards
8:49
IF they lose, I'm not sure anybody does. Chapman will make make convenient scapegoat. Maddon is going to be around and is well liked.
Jeff Sullivan
8:50
Chapman will get blamed, and Maddon will get secondarily blamed
Impossible to prove what effect last night had, but what happened happened
Craig Edwards
8:50
bunting is bad. bunting for a hit/run is good, but that is a low percentage play.

Chapman stuff is not there.
Jeff Sullivan
8:51
I do like the squeeze bunt. Just not 3-and-2 with Baez
Craig Edwards
8:51
lots of offspeed.
Jeff Sullivan
8:52
Kipnis goes after ball four
Abe
8:52
I've just been giggling for the last hour.
Craig Edwards

Extras.
Jeff Sullivan
8:52
Extra innings!
8:53
Schwarber/Bryant/Rizzo coming up, Miller and Allen gone. I don't know who has the advantage now -- might be a straight-up 50/50 with Chapman also gassed
Russ
8:53
This has been a great escape from the reality that there's an election next week.
Abbot
8:54
Question: was the Davis homer off a bad pitch?
Jeff Sullivan
8:54
We're now approaching 2,000 participants in this
Zack
8:54
So this game has had a foul bunt K, a two run wild pitch, home runs from Davis off Chapman and Ross off Miller... anything I'm missing?
Jeff Sullivan
8:54
Two Javier Baez misplays at second base?
Craig Edwards
8:55
it was a low inside fastball at 97 mph. Maybe not great location or velocity from Chapman, but not terrible.
Noooooooooo
Jeff Sullivan
8:55
RAIN DELAY
Bingo!
We all win Game 7 bingo!
8:56
For those wondering, this could conceivably favor the Cubs, because this could burn Shaw
Craig Edwards

brb
Jeff Sullivan
8:56
Rain rolls in right at the forecasted four-hour mark
Nick
8:56
Strop and Rondon have to be elsewhere if Joe couldn't bring either of them (or Edwards) to face Guyer. Guyer kills LH pitching.
Jeff Sullivan
8:57
When you have Aroldis Chapman, you don't worry about platoon splits

Eric
8:58
If the cubs are gonna win, it had to be like this. Cubs can't cake walk to victory after 108 years
Tepid Coffee
8:59
A pretty good advertisement for the excitement of baseball, this game is.
Jeff Sullivan
8:59
If it weren't for the rain, this would be absolutely perfect for the sport
Stinky Pete
9:00
If this gets deep into extras, who are the long arms in either pen? Thinking Wood and Salazar?
Jeff Sullivan
9:00
Salazar threw 28 pitches yesterday. He's the most electric option, but who knows what he has left
Johnny Baseball
9:00
Is John Lackey available
