  • Although he took a hard fastball off of the wrist the night before, it looks like Mike Olt is going to be OK.
  • Bryant bomb, Schwarber bomb, Russell ridiculous play. Do I need to say more?

  • Luke lets folks know what kind of minor league awesomeness they can come to expect on Sundays.
  • Luis wants to make sure folks are aware that getting hits with runners in scoring position is only half the battle.

Just like that, Cubs win the series against the Rockies, and they’ve got a winning record! It feels so strange! And glorious! Exclamation points!!!
