Well, Kluber and Lee didn’t choke. Only CC and thru 1 start Bieber.


Kluber was solid in 2016. In 2017 and 2018, he was 0-2 with an ERA of 10.64 in 3 starts.

Why do we keep developing cy young talent only for them to choke in the playoffs smh?

I was thinking this last night after the game.

This is the Kluber I was thinking about,  but he definitely delivered in 16’ (except for game 7).

Are we really going to blame Kluber for getting drilled by the Astros when all indications and data point to them knowing the pitches? Obviously, they cheated that game. But his K rate, whiff rate and their take percentage were ridiculous. It wasn’t him. Same for Carrasco...everything that game vs the regular season was eye-popping.

Vs Yankees he had a back issue that needed medical attention. Indians/Kluber choose to keep that quite until season was over.

I actually think Bieber was tipping his pitches last night. Yankees were taking ridiculously good pitches and drilling anything straight/in the zone. It wasn’t a bad outing...it was a complete outlier from 2 seasons worth of data on him.

What moron thought it was ok to start the game with storms rolling in 10 unites later? Do they not talk to meteorologists? So stupid.

Fucking DeShields. This is not good. Carrasco lost the zone all of a sudden. Here comes Karinchak

Sandy watched Tito too closely with Miller. Karinchak ain’t Miller, and that was an awful decision. DeShields has to make that play. But you can’t bring Karinchak in there. Someone like Perez would’ve been perfect. Concede the run, but try and get them to make weak contact.

Santana has been a complete 0 all season. If Reyes would adopt Hernandez approach to hitting, hed have 40+ HRs a year, easy.

That was the dumbest decision I’ve ever seen. Somehow it worked out, but my God. It’s as if Sandy didn’t know that NY would go to the pen for a RHP!

Tied at 8. 

So there’s still a chance to break our hearts.

This is my favorite umpire, because he stabs the RHH when they K looking. I call him Jack The Ripper to myself. But his strike-zone has been horrendous.

Here comes a dumb bunt. Then IBB to José. Then K, K by Santana and Reyes.
