Watch and Enjoy: Yu Darvish and Craig Kimbrel Versus Kyle Schwarber, Nico Hoerner, and Jason Heyward

Don’t worry! Pitchers are always ahead of the hitters this time of year! And the Cubs also have some really good pitchers! So it’s all good when Cubs batters can do nothing with Yu Darvish and Craig Kimbrel in live BP today.

… or maybe when Nico Hoerner sends one up the middle against Kimbrel, it just means he’s really seeing the ball well, and he’s just that good!

I kid. This stuff is not something to parse or interpret, aside from the fact that Darvish and Kimbrel are throwing live BP today, which is nice for the schedule.

Instead, it’s just really fun to see Cubs batters facing Cubs pitchers:
