Officially a playoff game unlike the 163rd game tiebreakers each team played Monday, the roster limit maximum is set at 25 players. Jon Lester would be on any short list of pitchers you would want in a sudden-death situation.
This is the second time that each franchise has played in the Wild Card Game.
The Colorado Rockies beat the Chicago Cubs 2-1 in the longest sudden-death game in Major League Baseball history. It was another very disappointing appearance, and I remarked that I'm not sure the Cubs could justify carrying him on a postseason roster at this point.

Former Valencia star Pablo Hernandez predicts loss for Manchester United
They do it, they don't do it that's a different story, but I repeat I am naive or I still believe the player is an honest man. Jesse Lingard, Ander Herrera, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo missed training ahead of the match against Valencia on Tuesday.

"And they know that, so that's why they run their mouth a lot, because they know we're the best", he added.
"We've got to stop worry about other teams", Baez said pregame Tuesday. He kept it going in the postseason. The Cubs loaded the bases in the seventh when Tommy LaStella reached on a catcher's interference call, but with the crowd on its feet anticipating an October moment, pinch-hitter Jason Heyward struck out to end the inning. "We've got to go out there and have fun". "Even when we're struggling we're ahead of everybody". Everybody, fans. Who cares? This year, they could not make it to the NLDS.
Maddon is one of the game's great free thinkers. His lost offense led to a lost season.
