It will be interesting how they deploy Lester tonight.

I probably would have waited to the last minute to submit roster and started Lester.  Then after one time through the Indian's lineup, pull him and Ross for Hendricks and Contreras.  They would have started a more righty type lineup and then have to stick with it the last 7 or so innings as the righty comes in.

Old school announcers complaining about the real quick hook.  Better Maddon waits till Hendricks gives up three runs before pulling him, I guess.  Hendricks got over 4 innings done, good time to pull him especially when all arms are available (except for Arrieta, likely).

Exactly. Chapman said last night that he has 2 innings left for tonight (obviously that's up to Maddon, but still). Everyone's available.

Yep. No way I'd have brought Lester into the middle of an inning. That was the perfect spot for Montgomery or Strop to pitch.

Fluke stuff happened here.  Weak hit, Ross error on that hit, wild pitch.  Probably not good odds to bring him in with a runner on, but that's not why two scored.  No hard hits at all.  Veteran catcher should know better than to attempt that throw.  For such a great defensive team, their defense stinks today.

Oh, don't disagree, but he wasn't the sharpest at all, either. Nevermind the running concerns, which likely allowed runners a running start on any wild pitch.

 

I'd have him start an inning, but I don't want a guy who's uncomfortable throwing to a base coming in with guys on base in game 7.

Dammit, it looks like the Cubs just might pull this off - I know a boatload of folks who will be missing work tomorrow, and Friday too probably....

These are two of my favorite managers going at it in game 7 - hate to see either lose really.

Nice to see that Chicago's going to win in their home stadium.... They're cheering louder than Cleveland fans.

Cleveland fans are going to find that karma is a bee-yotch. All those "3-1" parties and posters around town throughout the year....now they're coming back to bite them in the butt.

Definitely remember Progressive Field looking like a ghost town when the Twins were in town. Though that may say more about who the opponent was....
