Yes, a couple calls were missed. It happens. Also: Hammel was great again last night, but can he sustain it? Joe Nathan update, and more.
Analysis and Commentary
It seemed a fair guess that he was being brought in as a lefty reliever, but maybe that’s not the case.
We aren’t too happy about the planned rules either.
Reading too much into last night’s game would be a mistake. Also: the Pirates’ struggles, short-season rosters, more.
Heyward’s been fairly hot for over a month now, and scorching hot for the last two weeks.
It might not be as crazy as it sounds.
Do you even remember that Lester went just 2.2 innings five starts ago? Nope. He’s been crazy good. Also, the Pirates have been crazy bad.
The Cubs’ rotation has been baseball’s best by a far cry, and John Lackey has been an integral part of that.
More bad than good so far, but it theoretically should turn around.
Something to get you through the long wait for baseball. Something very good.
The 22-year-old outfielder is getting a chance to fulfill his dream. What comes next?
Lester was so good, but there was a reason he finished up after eight innings.
