Sometimes Jon Lester gets knocked around a bit. It was always coming, and it’s all fine. Also, swing hard against Josh Hader.
Maddon was actually just trying to stick up for his own guy.
Hum-drum loss right here.
And yet he’s still only the number two bat on the Cubs!
That was very tight and tense … and then it was just very fun.
Well that was a surprise whoopin’ of the happy variety.
That’s gonna be FIVE in seven weeks.
A team of defenders made up entirely of You. Is that inning ending any time soon?
“I know they got the worst bullpen in baseball … so I’ll just leave it at that.”
Kinsler previously said that American players were raised to show emotion and passion in a “different way.” I guess so.
Could be time for a Bote breather, Quintana let it slip away, and I’ll save Sammy a seat in the bleachers.
God save the queen … from that Javy Baez monster blast.
I think it’s OK to be frustrated today if you’d like. It’s been a while!
Aren’t rain delays supposed to provide some magic strength to the Cubs?
That was an extremely fast return for Caratini.
It made enough sense when the Cubs did it, but was it a scouting and player development miss?
Edwards is just not the guy to go to with runners on base. Also, I’m on a podcast now with Sahadev Sharma and Patrick Mooney.
The bullpen drops the ball on an otherwise solid night.
Just his second homer in over a month.
He’s actually been pretty hot at the plate going on 17 games now.
It has become more and more clear the battles Yu Darvish is fighting with himself out on the mound. But how do you actually fix it?
A range of injuries, and a range of schedules.
Anyone else think this stretch “feels” like the hot start to 2016?
No, the Cubs don’t want Addison Russell to take over the shortstop job.
Let’s enjoy Kyle Hendricks’ feats of awesomeness.
Kyle Hendricks stud on the mound and at the plate!
He is SO GOOD.
What a shot by Hendricks!
Reidy is extremely gracious in her comments about what Russell is currently facing.
I say do it. I would enjoy that race …
