Rough sequence, Kershaw been struggling with his command since the 5th. Should've yanked him after the 6th inning.

Speaking of, with our other ace in Carrasco on the mound on Sunday, is Mr. Judge going to full A-Rod and end up 0-for the series?

No, I didn't forget.

I really meant "first few seasons with the Yanks" A-Rod. You know, the one who famously failed to show up in the post-season. I didn't think it really needed additional clarification or specification. But yea.

Is Judge gonna go 0-for or not?

Famously failed to show up while putting up a 116 wRC+ in the postseason (jeter's was 119)... okay

What's the correlation between A-Rod and Judge again?

There's no question Arod's PS record would be better than Jeter's but for the fact he missed 3 seasons at his prime while at Texas.

I was actually pissed when they let him go. I really liked Ricky and I'm glad he got the Sox job. Maddon was the perfect fit for the Cubs.

I hear you. I feel the same. I like to see if the Yankees can at least avoid being swept like the Red Sox will (hehe)

The worst part is Joe is not owning up to it. I canít even remotely consider defending his lack of a challenge.

Sanchez was telling the dugout and the umpire that the ball hit his bat and not his hand.

The batter was standing at the plate. He even looked confused.

Green was not in rhythm at all. He was missing pitches and Cleveland was putting good swings on him. Plus, they already visited the mound earlier so youíre perfectly fine with disrupting his shaky rhythm.

The play was a strikeout. It gets you out of a bases loaded jam with one of their best hitters at the dish. They took a commanding lead against Kluber - something not many teams can do - at their stadium in an effort to swing the momentum in their favor and bring the series to NY with that momentum.

I just canít believe Joe.

Trust your catcher and understand the situation for fuckís sake.

Joe will always have a job in baseball, so long as he wants it, but this is a fireable offense. This wasnít a game in May. This was a game you needed to win.

Plus, pinch running Torreyes for Frazier was the wrong move. Not just because Torreyes got picked off (inexcusable - he shouldnít see another inning) but because youíre going to lose Frazierís glove. How many games has Torreyes played third?

And taking CC out at 77 pitches when he was settling in was a mistake too.

And using Robertson was asinine as well. He went 3+ 48 hours earlier, for Christís sake.

Joe canít manage a bullpen this good.

Like I said, though, if they donít win this series, Joe should be let go.

Cubs get up to this fuckery in the regular season too. The two best starts of Gerrit Cole's career are losses to the Cubs.

Lost in all this was Chad Green's poor performance, Frazier's big errors, and the offense going cold after Bird's homer and not answering the grand slam with even 1 run of their own. Torreye getting picked off second was also a huge deal. Girardi deserves all the criticism he gets but the team needs to be held accountable as a whole.

The Washington Post of all places had an interesting article talking about how the Cubs can someone snatch victory when they really shouldn't have a shot at winning the game:

https://www.washingtonpost.com/sport...=.728c7d042690

The bats were getting dominated all game by Stras, yet the team took advantage of literally the only scoring opportunity they had against him. Good starting pitching definitely helps. I'll roll with Hendricks in any big game situation and think he can out pitch the competition.

At least it was only the ALDS. Joe Maddon picked game 7 of the world series to have his worst managed game of all time. He luckily got bailed out by his players. I wonder how people would think of him of a manager if the Cubs had lost that game.
