Would be nice to catch Twins, but we seem to be destined for that 7th spot.

With the Twins owning the tie-breaker, it's going to be hard to finish ahead of them. I'm not sure that seeding really matters that much with the expanded playoffs. If we tonight and Mariners lose, we clinch.

I agree. At this point, clinch and then get the rotation set for Bieber, Plesac, Carrasco. Could even flip Plesac/Carrasco the way Carlos is going. 

Probably go with Civale as the 4th and move McKenzie to the pen, which definitely strengthens that aspect of the team.

6-4 thanks to Carlos.

T7 Wittgren pitching

Civale goes 6 or more innings for all eleven of his starts this year.

And it’ll be Bieber and Plesac going 1-2 in the playoffs, as they are both moved back a day. Quantril will start tomorrow.

The radio guys had been talking about how to juggle it to get to a Bieber Plesac start for the playoffs. 

BTW, huge win tonight.

I know that it is probably the right thing to do with a Magic number of 1 and 6 games left, but 40+ years of being a Cleveland sports fan scares me that it is bad karma to set the playoff rotation before actually clinching the playoff spot. Backing Bieber up to Wednesday takes away the option of him pitching him on normal rest on Sunday if all hell breaks loose the rest of this week, and we still somehow need a win.

I just learned that we have only had 1 walk off win this whole f-ing season.  And, this game is #25 of 2 runs or less. 

Extra innings time

Well, it will probably be a while before we see Maton pitching in the late innings.
