Villanueva is off to a "worry start" for all of us.   We'll see just how much worry we're in for in this 1st inning.  It may be an indicator.  (nice K btw!)

31 pitches so far and the bull pen was used up last night.  Methinks Villenueva is in for an ass whoopin this evening, along with the rest of the cub team

Hope the "worry" being inflicted on us by Carlos doesn't turn into a major headache!

Weird play on that grounder to Rizzo who tagged the base and then the runner on the base.  I wonder if players know exactly what to do in that kind of instance to maximize the outs they can get.  As a fan, I'm curious what that says about a player's baseball savy.
