Darvish is still on a crazy roll, but there might be a gameplanning/sequencing issue to address.

I’ll be curious to see where Hamels starts on the rubber tonight, and what we can see in his velocity.
Jose Quintana: Good at pitching.
I see it. I hear it. I understand it. But I don’t agree with it.
There’s a lot going on.
I sorta can’t believe it, but it’s true. And last night was one of the Cubs’ best starts of the year overall.
I still can’t believe that happened. Yet here we are.
That new baseball is producing some CRAZY numbers.
That’d be a better explanation than the other possibilities, but it still leaves you with some concerns.
There are a lot of reasons, but I don’t quite have the “explanation.”
Mostly good news. Some no news. Very little bad news. All in all? News.
Use the cameras and radars already. Enough of this. ENOUGH.
The right player, at the right time, producing in just the right way.
One of the best regular season moments in recent memory.
Just be happy he’s producing. Let’s leave the rest aside for now.
Sigh. That’s not ideal.
Pedro Martinez and Jack Patterson/Brailyn Marquez Are Your Cubs MiLB Player and Pitcher(s) of the Month!
Woo! Big time prospects making big time moves.
It’s probably time for the Cubs to take it easy on Cishek a bit. Also: Kyle (and Kyle!) deserve(s) some love.
We’ll see if he can keep this up the rest of the way, but right now, Darvish looks good, feels good, and is doing everything you’d want to see from him from the mound.
The Cubs will need to add some catching depth one way or another. It’s not easy after the Trade Deadline, but it’s possible.
It’s so good to have Hamels back.
Yesterday was certainly a good day. But we’ve got some charts to review.
I’m entitled to be frustrated.
The Cubs aren’t out-and-out saying Morrow is done, but I think that’s where we are.
The Cubs have nine relievers in the pen already, with two others coming back, and then a glut of options at Iowa.
The Cubs made a flurry of moves before the deadline, trying to improve the club as best they could without sacrificing top prospects.
Don’t trade Brailyn. Ever.
Kimbrel’s velocity ticked back up a bit last night, but will it ever fully return?
El Mago forever.
