Damn, what a complete wasted inning.

If Clayton Kershaw had been a free agent before this game, and was only available for a one day contract, how much do you think either the Cubs or Indians would have signed him for?
Jeff Sullivan
5:36
It probably feels good to have some hits on the board. So there's something
Andrew
5:36
Smoltz is far too rational and non-hot-takey for the lead analyst role
Jeff Sullivan
5:36
Best thing about him!
Enzo Amore
5:37
So there's no familiarity penalty in a series, but there could be one in game to contribute to time through the order problems? Why is that?
Jeff Sullivan
5:37
You're more likely to remember a pitcher from the same game than from a few games before
Craig Edwards
5:37
The Cubs would just pay more than whatever Cleveland offered, say $12 million.
Brandon
5:37
Not game 7 2011?
Defenda
5:37
Why ain't west behind the plate? FeeLing cheated.
Jeff Sullivan
5:37
Didn't have the Cubs in it
Craig Edwards
5:38
last night's game.
Andrew
5:38
The only other contender IMO: '04 ALCS Game 7
Jeff Sullivan
5:38
Also clearly huge. I wanted to give this one some championship bonus points
Nick
5:38
is expected batting average just based off of exit velocity and launch angle?
Craig Edwards
5:38
yes-what happened this year.
Dominik
5:39
how negative was the baserunning value of the Indians? it was horrible, right? got a couple SBs but also a gazillion pick offs and CS. everybody talked about Indians running on cubs P but the Indians probably had a pretty big net negative from running, right?
Jeff Sullivan
5:39
Yeah, the baserunning has not been a positive in this series for them at all
Unless I"m just forgetting a bunch
Johnny Baseball
5:40
How many innings can Andrew Miller pitch tonight
Jeff Sullivan
5:40
3
Another
5:40
Jose Ramirez has such an oddly shaped body, it's kind of cute
Jeff Sullivan
5:40
Feels like Juan Uribe, and how Uribe was surprisingly good in the field
aspergilius fumigatus
5:41
is it crazy for me to think that lester can be bad out of the pen? With his oddities, he seem like the kind of pitcher that this would be true for
Craig Edwards
5:41
That steal emboldened Schwarber...to his detriment.
Jeff Sullivan
5:41
Every starter has a routine you can't really follow when you relieve but I figure Lester will be fine, based on the precedent of other starters relieving
Schwarber out stretching! OK!
Maybe Ramirez can feel a little bit better about himself now
Ivana Suchadik
5:42
If the Cubs win, what volcano will the celebration eruption most resemble?
asabin
5:42
No way! Game 7 2011 was more anticipated. After that Game 6, everyone was watching.
Jeff Sullivan
5:42
Krakatau
Craig Edwards
5:42
10-15 million more people will be watching tonight.
Jeff Sullivan
5:42
There's no way that many people gave a shit about the Cardinals and the Rangers, not compared to this matchup
Kimball
5:42
I'm not monitoring the chat, so I apologize if this has been pointed out 8 times already, but: so much contact against Kluber.
Craig Edwards
5:43
hasn't hurt him too much yet.
Jeff Sullivan
5:43
Kluber today: one grounder, 10 non-grounders. That's really quite...maybe not bad, but at least unusual? He's not so sharp
His only two swinging strikes came back to back against Bryant
Stuafoo
5:44
You mean embiggened
Craig Edwards
5:44
schwarber needs no more embiggening
John
5:44
showing a decent amount of arrieta. Any chance we see him
