Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!!: James Paxton (.22 WPA)

C.B. Bucknor's Punch-Out!!: Robinson Cano (-.07)

Fernando Rodney Experience meter: Space Mountain

Questions:

1. Paxton looked dominant tonight. Where would you slot him into the hypothetical playoff rotation (both 5-game and 7-game series)?

2. Fielders, pitchers especially, pointing at popups seems like a pretty ridiculous on-field habit. I've played baseball since I was 6 and I do it too. What do you think, is it as ridiculous as it seems or does it actually benefit someone?

3. Does Stefen Romero get another pinch running chance after that pickoff blunder tonight?
