With so many balls in play, you wouldn’t always expect to have been as successful as Montgomery was.
The Cubs kick off the weekend with a close win!
What a game for Happ out in left.
Filling in quite well for a special defender in left field.
Ugh. Doesn’t affect the Cubs directly, but it’s really crummy news for the sport. (Also, that elbow might be why they didn’t get him in the first place.)
The arm. It is magnificent. Even opposing catchers are impressed.
I remain sad about how things are going for Fowler in St. Louis.
Morrow was all over the place in the 9th, but he got the job done – like he has almost every time this year.
Anthony Rizzo is plenty hot right now, my friends. Also, what a good series that was against the Phillies, and what an extreme oddity for Tommy La Stella.
It was a really close one, and a really critical play.
That’s a series win, when it looked late yesterday like the Cubs were risking getting swept!
SCardenfreude: Carlos Martinez Threw Soft to Prevent Re-Injury, Mike Matheny Had No Idea That Was Coming
And Matheny did not look very happy to have to answer questions about it.
Very glad that happened for Jason Heyward. Also, it was the first time the Cubs had a comeback walk-off homer like that one since a certain very special one.
What a moment. What a night. Baseball rewards you sometimes.
I AM FREAKING OUT!!!
I don’t believe what I just saw.
This thing was CRUSHED.
Day 3 … let’s swing for the fences and fill out the system.
Hugs all around, and thanks aplenty. Also, Darvish played catch, Russell got an MRI, and more.
Boy that was just pretty darn bad all around.
Thank you for everything, Jake.
It’s time to get into the middle rounds, and get serious about bonus pools and slot values and all that fun stuff. Oh, also: prospects.
A speedy center fielder with a good bat who has already succeeded in the Cape Cod league? Yup, I like it.
This is one of those that-should-not-be-physically-possible plays.
The Phillies arrive tonight with a former Cubs ace in tow.
