The Cubs can take the series with a win tonight at Wrigley Field.
That’s kinda odd. The Cubs have been adamant that Rizzo’s slide/collision was legal, and that struck me as correct.
Willson Contreras is well on his way to becoming one of the best catchers in baseball. He was INTO IT last night.
The Cubs are beat up, but they’re making their way back.
Wade Davis helped the Cubs close out their first back-to-back wins in a couple weeks. And he’s been really good. That, and much more.
It was a hard, aggressive play, but I don’t think there was anything dirty there. But I understand the Padres being upset.
Cubs, Padres. Let’s go.
The Cubs are going with just five righties tonight, but that’s mostly because there aren’t many other options.
The time, energy, and sacrifice that goes into the years-long process of bringing talent into the organization.
Cubs will probably have at least a couple All-Stars. Kris Bryant, and maybe Jason Heyward. And then maybe some selections from there.
It’s a long season. Also: Lackey was very solid, Edwards has a silly pitch, an update on Russell’s domestic violence investigation, and more.
The Chicago Cubs are suddenly loaded up on injuries.
The Cubs won their first road series since April! So it was a good weekend.
The universe does not see fit to give the Cubs breaks right now, but the thing is, they need to make their own. Also: Arrieta was sweating too much.
Arrieta has been dealing with a thumb cut/blister issue going all the way back to Spring Training, according to the Cubs’ pitching coach.
Rizzo should have had his third straight leadoff homer, but strange procedural choices by the umps cost him.
A crazy 9th inning after a crazy first inning. Bookends! Also, the slide was great.
Anthony Rizzo Hit His Third Straight Leadoff HR … Then the Umps Took It Away, and Joe Maddon Got the Boot
The craziest sequence and inning you’ll see.
