Bieber should have walked into Tito’s office this morning and told him “I’m starting“ and walked out. Gibson, Schilling, Bumgarner, Koufax aren’t sitting on the bench in a game like this.

Yeah, if it was going to be a bullpen game basically anyway, he could have started with a few of his great relievers and maybe tried to have Civale steal a few middle innings.
This makes so much sense it's sad. The biggest thing for Cleveland was not to fall behind early. I don't get the decision

There's a good chance you could wind up, go through your delivery and not throw the ball ... and Naylor would swing

This game is already over. It's the bottom of the 2nd. I am usually a big believer in "it's not over till it's over". But it's over.

Cleveland cannot hit. Not every blooper can drop and it's not like they are even putting the ball in play.(excepting Kwan, the only guy who knows how to hit)

In the grand tradition of holding your nose and voting for the less vile of candidates, it appears time to root temporarily for the Astros

Still not over in terms of MFY bullpen usage. Keep chipping away. Make them use Holmes and Wandy

My hatred for the MFY exceeds any ethical boundaries. Go Astros.

I hope Astros beat the MFY 399-0, but Altuve doesn't go deep.

(Still care about Manny holding the postseason streak as long as possible. Altuve is close (6 away) and young enough to break it.)

Imagine an NFL player watching the collision? They would be like, "Are you kidding me, that's basically a non contact play?"

To be fair, Naylor's, "I'm your daddy," celebration is truly awful and weird and it's especially bad for a team that can't hit.

Guardians swinging like it’s getaway day … which, I guess, technically it is… but jeez… work a count.

He was safe. Nice job Tito. Challenge all the shit all series that was wrong and then don't challenge the clearly safe play.

The Guardians are just washed. They are ready to go home.

Even in a hurry to get off the field after a call that could be challenged.
Tito and the staff and the team are not at the top of their game today.
