It should count in the standings.
One of the strangest and most disappointing chapters in recent Cubs memory.
There’s no timetable yet for Darvish’s return, but when he comes back, there won’t be a six-man rotation.
Cubs are creeping up on the Brewers, and I’m good with that.
Arrieta criticized the defense behind him, the overall play in their series this weekend, and hopes the Phillies turn things around before they face the Cubs.
That’s a four-game sweep, baby!
Hopefully it’s not any kind of serious issue.
It gave the Cubs their first run of the day!
It took the Cubs another couple months last year to get this far above .500. Just sayin’. Also, how about a six-man rotation for a bit?

Three big two-run hits in the same extra inning.
FINALLY. Thank you, bats, for breaking through in the 14th.
Ben Zobrist has found the fountain of youth for a bit, and I love it. I also love high socks, Albert Almora’s bat, and more.
Schwarber popped his 11th homer of the year. Not bad for a defensive replacement.
The Cubs couldn’t do much at the plate for six innings, and then they broke out.
It’s what he does, and I love it.
Walking just isn’t Javy’s thing. Striking out isn’t Jason’s thing.
Great night from Jose Quintana, and a great moment for Javy Baez.
The foul was probably more impressive, but only the actual homer counted.
And it ended exactly how you’d expect it to end.
Cubs have some guys heating up, and Montgomery figures to get several more starts. Also, how long will Edwards be out?
Yu Darvish wants to be out there contributing, and it sounds like it’s getting to him that he can’t be. But, no, Cubs fans on the whole don’t hate him.
The Cubs’ bats couldn’t pull off the sweep.
Can we just stop with this?
Chris Gimenez could have opted out, and Caratini was getting no playing time.
He must have thought Joe Maddon actually advocated catchers digging literal trenches.
