But the other thought was where was the rest of the Cubs bullpen? Maddon completely abandoned the rest of the bullpen in games 6-7. Edwards and Montgomery only pitched because they went extra innings.
You ask your top talent to do more in these situations; happens every Fall. If Lester gets the called strike in the 8th, Chapman comes in to finish the 9th and you have nothing to b!tch about.

Yet Maddon is 1 for 2 in winning World Championships and you make dumb comments on yappi. Life isn't fair, huh?
