Wait....people are actually debating that that pitch was a ball??

I'm not terribly surprised it was called a ball given how terribly that Contreras received it, but it was most certainly a strike right down the middle. Just goes to show how much pitch framing, both positively and negatively, can affect an umpire's judgement.

I think the Cubs and Indians are locks for the WS and the Cubs win again. Parade deuce.
Cubs and Indians obviously were not into it until recently. They survived the doldrums and are ready to roll again. They have the most talent, folks.

The 2017 Cubs are going to go the way of the 2005 Red Sox. That rotation is not very good.

Yes but Kansas blows it in a one loss and you are out format. The Cubs get the 7-game series to do their damage; ditto Cleveland. I really feel they survived the dog days where they couldn't get up for games after being in a WS. Now both teams are on fire. I feel like Cleveland will lose again cause the Cubs will be loose in the WS and Cleveland tight.

I am perfectly fine with this. He basically says that if he paid attention to it, he wouldn't enjoy baseball as much for what it is, and that is OK. He also doesn't put down those that do enjoy that kind of stuff, like Hosmer, who is still a total douche in my book.

It must be exhausting living in a world of extreme absolutes. I don't know how you even function on a daily basis.

I like Phil Rogers but he just said he would rather have Lackey or Lester start a playoff game than Kershaw because of Kershaws postseason numbers up until now. Insane.

Except one college basketball game is more equal to 5-7 games of baseball. It's why the White Sox can sweep the 95 win Astros but it doesn't mean they are better in any way shape or form.

Replay giving a call to the Cubs in a meaningful game, what else is new.

I like Phil when he writes columns on historical stories and profiles, but not at all as a sport pundit.

Can't imagine how many Cubs players would have been ejected the last two days if every call went against them like it has the last two nights for the Brewers
