Yep....beat me to it. Russell should've gotten that out. Great example of how every play in the field is critical in baseball

Congrats to Troll and NJ.  Real fans even back during the tough times.  Hoping the Cubs win the WS for you guys. 

Ironically enough, in 1997, I was a 13 year old Indians fan. It wasn't my first baseball heartbreak. That would be whenever Albert Belle signed with the White Sox. That son of a bitch. It's tough to r

Thanks Rob - it was a phenomenal season. I think it gave  - truth be told - my favorite sport a shot in the arm too which just adds to the special nature of what happened here. I was at the first

Fair, but ultimately it's about what actually transpired.  

As i said earlier today, all I wanted was an awesome game that goes 18 innings. At this point, even just getting to extras in the way that we got here is a win. 

Just an awesome game and awesome series all around. Regardless of what happens, this series is the gift that keeps on giving.

Cant wait to see the rest.

Not sure that this will get much play in the media...but that play by Lindor with 2 outs and runner on third in top of the 9th after the Indians tied it up....i mean, god damn.

If Indians pull this out, he gets a bulk of the credit in my eyes. That play is nowhere near easy, especially with the speed running down the line to 1st. Lindor was quick as a squirrel!

That guy might legit become the best player in baseball within a few years. What a gamer. For a kid that young and that talented to be playing this clutch on such a stage, just unreal. 22 years old and he hasn't flinched every time he's been in a pressure spot, and he's been in a LOT.

Not really. I mean I think the game just got too big for Maddon or Baez, whomever made that call. A fly ball drives the run in. Between going to Lester too early and Chapman too, he's just over analyzing everything.

A 3-2 squeeze play. Just preposterous. Plus the guy hit a home run tonight already.

Good to know I'm not the only one... the way Smoltz was all like " oh yeah I knew that was going to be the play" I thought I was missing something.

Yeah, he's been bad all series like that. That bunt attempt was horrendous. Only explanation is that Baez is a big swing and miss guy no matter what and has laid down good bunts.
