How do you barrel this pitch?
That’s number 33 on the year for Baez, and he probably owes Rizzo a cup of soup for the assist.
That could be huge news. Or maybe they’re not seriously hurt. But either way, it puts them behind the 8-ball tonight against the Reds.
Our hopes were up. Now they are flat.
Injuries aplenty, and the Cubs’ bullpen just keeps on dominating.
Good to have Heyward back in the fold.
“It’s all right. It worked. I hit a home run.” I am crying.
Hit. The. Ball. Hard. It was so nice to see from the Cubs last night.
I am not here to argue with math and computers.
Willson Contreras does not know the meaning of the words “defensive indifference.”
Hey, it’s more than one run!
That would obviously be both incredible and awesome.
A couple early-season blowups are skewing his results.
The Cubs easily could have been swept in that series. Also, that ball was obviously fair.

Schwarber’s back is still bothering him enough that extra rest is warranted.
From Pirates fan to Reds fan.
I’d call it a mixed weekend, at best. If you missed any headlines, catch up here.
Come on, bats. Where are you?
Important assists in a 1-0 win.
Heyward missed about 16 days with a hamstring injury.
Enjoy Lester’s dominance of the Reds. I certainly did.
Everybody who isn’t the Cubs loses!
It’s another win! Barely. But it counts!
The Cubs clearly have a new elite setup man and new elite closer.
Without this one, the game probably ends very differently.
The Pirates didn’t offer too much of a challenge for the Brewers and their bullpen.
Ah, so that’s how it’s going to feel without a sure-fire closer …
I AM CURRENTLY HAPPY! (Don’t take this away from me, Cubs.)
