big ups to Harper for not forcing anything there. Takes a lot of restraint as the star player to just spit on 4 pitches and get on base when 1 swing can tie it

How is (generic decent reliever) not better than a super-taxed Jansen or Kershaw right now?
ReggieBar
12:28
Wow, Jansen stays in!
Marty
12:29
so...50 pitch jansen > 1 day rest Kersh..I honestly have no idea here
Dave Cameron
12:29
No one does
We have no data on this
Joel
12:29
Gotta figure this is absolutely the last human that Jansen faces tonight
Dave Cameron
12:29
Yep
Kershaw is in for Murphy
Cory
12:30
Isn't Baez pretty good? Why not just use him
Dave Cameron
12:30
He's ok
HR prone, which would be bad here
Matt
12:30
Fangraphs Admins ... do you run Harper?
Dave Cameron
12:30
No
Joe
12:31
Is Kershaw now out for Sunday too? Even if he doesn't come in
Craig Edwards
12:31
I wouldn't think so.

Wouldn't this be like a bullpen session for Kershaw?
Tanner

Last postseason you remember being this exciting, this quickly?
Dave Cameron
12:32
You don't throw bullpens on one day rest after throwing 110 on three day srest
The crazy STL/Tex game?
Craig Edwards
12:32
there were 3 game 5s last season, which helps.

jd

game 4 KC/HOU and game 5 TEX/TOR last year were probably better than anything so far this year

I know Murphy's about to rip a double and that'll be all she wrote.
natsurally
12:34
I like that they're not going to commercial.
Nola
12:34
Dave, is this exactly how you would've played this?
Dave Cameron
12:34
I don't know, honestly.
Craig Edwards
12:35
they've played 4.5 hours. I think they've probably fulfilled their commercial obligations.
