They do not
3-and-0 pitch coming...
And a green light for Lindor. Ballsy
5:56
Two *perfect* pitches by Hendricks at 3-and-0 and 3-and-1. Lindor is out
It's bukkake night in Canada
5:56
What's with the turf here, Heyward almost faceplanted last night, Baez slipped on the first error, Zobrist almost wiped out there
Craig Edwards
5:56
it's been wet.
Tanner
5:56
Man I feel bad for baez right now
Jeff Sullivan
5:56
Remember Andrus from last year's Game 5?
Tom
5:57
WOWOWOW

Game 7 has not disappointed thus far. Exciting stuff
Jeff Sullivan

I saw that comment about 30 seconds before anything happened. That was suspenseful

WPA misses a lot. We probably use it too much.
Jeff Sullivan
5:58
Napoli lines the hell out and we're still tied after three. Baseball is wonderful and a cruel son of a bitch

Jeff are you behind everyone else?
Jeff Sullivan
5:59
Probably
Craig Edwards
5:59
It doesn't get used a whole lot in the regular season, aside from the Britton stuff this year, but it helps frame moments in the postseason, which is helpful in understanding how big a play was.
Jaime

Does Hendricks pitch the fourth inning?
Sean Dolinar
6:00
No one evaluates players on WPA. At least, no one I know does.
Craig Edwards
6:00
I think probably, but with somebody warming.
K-Man

Hey guys, watching on MLB TV. Has the game started yet

Do pitchers who start at 88/89 experience the same loss of speed as pitchers who start in the high 90s as they age?
Craig Edwards
6:01
I believe so.

.568 xBA on that Napoli hit.
Al

What exactly is the Def column on a player page? Their defense relative to an average defender?
Sean Dolinar
6:01
It's Fielding and Position runs above average added together which go into WAR.

At what point do you think about double switching Zobrist to 2nd and benching Baez?
Craig Edwards
6:02
One thing to keep in mind on these xBA is that it doesn't factor where on the field the ball is hit.
Jeff Sullivan
6:02
If you start Baez today, you don't remove him based on three innings
David
6:02
Do you think Pedro Strop and Hector Rondon even bothered to suit up tonight?
Jeff Sullivan

Hanging out with Ryan Merritt in an area bar
Dominik
6:03
how ironic is it that both cubs defense and Indians baserunning have been spotty this series? :)
Erik
6:03
People use WPA? I mean it's neat to see how events affect odds, but I rarely let myself attribute it to players in a meaningful way.
G Money
6:03
This game is going to come down to which manager panics first.
Craig Edwards
6:04
Panic can also come in the form of doing nothing.
Travis Wood Stan

Predictions on how much longer on Kluber and Hendricks?
Jeff Sullivan
6:04
Feels like this should be Kluber's last inning
6:05
Lester might be ready for the bottom half already
MillerEmVeePee
6:05
Last inning for Kluber or one more after this if he looks good?
Jeff Sullivan
6:05
No reason I can think of to push him
Joe
6:05
Has anyone studied how effective bringing the infield in is? Really looked like Rizzo would've had a shot at the RBI hit if he'd been in his regular spot.
