Heyward is eyeing a return as soon as tonight against the Cardinals.
Chicago Cubs News
That 9th inning Dexter Fowler play got a lot of scrutiny, but I’m not sure you can blame him too much.
It was not clear he was ever going to get a shot with the big league team.
Cubs pitchers and hitters might need to learn a new strike zone in 2017 if new rules are passed.
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.
Good news on Heyward … but the rest of the weekend was kind of a lot of crummy news.
At least a couple reasons, actually. Plus more on Heyward, Ramirez, the strike zone, and other stuff.
The Cubs will have 10 days to trade, waive, or release Ramirez.
The waiting continues, and Heyward will sit tonight at least.
Three big-time blasts, and a whole lot of fun.
He is so, so very good.
It was great to see from a guy who’s had too few of those this year.
