    So players should get to dictate when they play?

    Millionaire players? Sure. If it becomes a problem they lose their value and that hurts them.

    It is hurting him already. Which is why he's now going to pitch.

    Or he's going to pitch because it's a day later. But I'm sure you know what's going on inside his head.

    I think we can all agree the best solution is for him to be shelled and the Nats to be knocked out.

    The nats losing was pre-destined either way.

    Derek Who? Sir Didi Gregorious with 2 HR in 2 AB vs Kluber, Yanks lead 3-0 after 3.

    CC dealing.

    Kluber yanked in the 4th.

    His ALDS? 2 GS, 6.1 IP. That's... Not what Cleveland wanted from their ace.

    Gardner battles for a 13 pitch at bat in the 9th with 2 outs, singles to right to plate 1, Indians bobble the ball on the throw in, another run scores.

    5-2 headed to last licks for the Indians.

    The Indians, the best defensive team this season, had 9 errors in a 5 game series. 7 errors in games 4-5.

    Cleveland has now lost 6 straight close out games.

    Re: MLB 2017: Playoffs, World Series, and Off-season.

    As much as I am enjoying the Yankees moving on, the fact is that the Cleveland Indians are a choke franchise. Now with baseball's longest current championship drought. I found this interesting tidbit.

    To elaborate, here is Cleveland in close-out games over the last 20 years since the World Series
    1997 (0-1): lost Game 7 of the World Series after being up 2-0 in the 7th and 2-1 in the 9th
    1998 (1-0): beat Boston in Game 4 of ALDS
    1999 (0-3): lost 3 straight to Boston after being ahead 2-0 to lose the ALDS
    2001 (0-2): lost 2 straight to Seattle after being ahead 2-1 to lose the ALDS
    2007 (1-4): lost Game 3, won Game 4 to close out the Yankees in the ALDS; lost 3 straight to Boston after being ahead 3-1 to lose the ALCS
    2013 (0-1): lost WC game to the Rays
    2016 (2-4): swept Boston in ALDS; lost Game 4, won Game 5 to close out Toronto in the ALDS; lost 3 straight to Chicago after being ahead 3-1 to lose the World Series
    2017 (0-3): lost 3 straight to the Yankees after being ahead 2-0 to lose the ALDS

    Thatís 4-16 overall.
    Thatís 0-7 in winner-take-all games.
    Thatís 4 times having lost 3 in a row to lose a playoff series after being 2 games ahead.

    Choke franchise.
    Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people.

    I don't think you can blame Cleveland. I think you have to blame Francona. He sold his soul to the devil to come back from the 0-3 deficit to the Yankees in 2004, breaking the curse of the Bambino. But the price is a lifetime of blowing big series leads in the post-season.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    This was the final time I was able to bring myself root for a Boston franchise in any sporting event. Still my favorite non-Mets / non-Mariners baseball memory, though.
