    Absolutely. It's why I didn't want him resigned. Right now his velocity drops when he's tired but what happens when his velocity drops due to age? I'm glad we don't have to find out.

    On the Maddon front, sure he fucked up. Everyone fucks up. I would have rather he owned up to this and took the heat as he normally does but I think winning a World Series stroked his ego a bit and he didn't. I frankly don't care at this point. We won the Word Series and we've spent 8 pages bitching about the manager's mistakes. I'm over it.
    That makes two of us. Besides, there is absolutely no guarantee that had he done things "by the book" that it would have worked out well for the Cubs. I'm a firm believer that the only bad managerial move is one that doesn't work. It doesn't matter if you go miles out of your way to get to your destination...only that you get there.

    Very good read here. It really kills the excuse that Chapman was overused or tired in that 8th inning where he was hit.

    "The average velocity of those 13 pitches was 100 on the nose, just slightly slower than the 100.6 Chapman had averaged in the postseason before that appearance. The pitches' horizontal movement, at an average of 4.3 inches, was almost identical to his pitch movement (4.6 inches) during the season. His release point, at 6.36 feet from the ground, was a pinkie fingernail from his norm, far less than his normal game-to-game variance."
