Let’s dig into the numbers to get a good sense of what’s actually going on.
Analysis and Commentary
Looking at the rules … yeah, he should not have been called out.
Things don’t look so good now, but that’s why it’s especially good that the Cubs were so good early. Good? Good.
Hector Rondon has nearly doubled his strikeout rate because of the evolution of his pitch mix.
At least a couple reasons, actually. Plus more on Heyward, Ramirez, the strike zone, and other stuff.
He is so, so very good.
It was great to see from a guy who’s had too few of those this year.
One of the largest increases in baseball, despite already starting so high. Ridiculous.
Interesting to consider in relation to the Cubs’ performance.
Arrieta and Sale are truly magnificent. But right now, Kershaw is in another world. Plus more on yesterday’s loss, and miscellaneous fun.
You know the Bullets are going to be extra long after a game like that.
The Cubs inked the 41-year-old reliever to a big league deal yesterday – where’s he been the last couple years, and what comes next?
Maaaaaybe things are turning around a bit for him finally?
