Rick Monday

Billy Williams

Dawson

the first half of the 'daily double': bob dernier

Dave Kingman

Keith Moreland

1 of those 6 has got to be right....Right?

1 of those 6 is correct and it's definitely not Moreland or Kingman...

i was going to guess Dawson but someone beat me to it.

Then Dawson/Dernier Did they both get it same year?

(drum roll)...Bobby Dernier - 1984

Dernier?

Adolfo Philips?

Adolfo Philips? Jason DuBois? Glenallen Hill?

bob denier

hmm....Ransom Jackson? George Altman?

Billy Williams

or not so much...

Al Heist, Richie Ashburn or a host of others.

Bryon Browne, Jim Hickman or should have been Lou Brock!

slamdog, if your first suggestion had indeed unexpectedly won a Gold Glove, well, it would've made for quite a heist...

Andre Dawson

Yea, but that Henry Cotto covered more ground and had a stronger arm.

Brant Brown

  • video of Maddon.

    always nice that he actually tries to honestly answer questions. Does mention that he wanted to give Zastr? a chance in a meaningful spot rather than a mop-up role.

  • from Muskat:

    #Cubs Maddon: "I'm not going to make up an excuse for why I did what I did. It has nothing to do with lack of confidence" ... "It was the right thing to do today based on what I saw, what their lineup looked like and Rob Z.'s availability." #Cubs

    Hammel not particularly understanding of getting pulled out...as he should. Be curious what Maddon had to say. All I can think of is is keeping arms fresh and maybe wanting to see if Zastr? is worth considering for the playoffs and how he'd do against the Dodgers.

  • great defense

    Heyward, Russell, Baez, Bryant, Ross in particular...although Bryant's a bit hard to judge with all the positions.

    Fowler and Rizzo in the top half of the NL for their positions as well (per fangraphs)...Zobrist right at the halfway cutoff for 2b in the NL.

    I'm sure some luck is involved too, but the Cubs and Maddon knew what they were doing.

  • If all the starters have FIP > ERA, is that luck or good defense?

  • #Cubs plummet to 19-5 in August.

    Fun with FIP

    • J. Hammel   3.07 ERA/4.27 FIP (3.68 FIP last year)
    • J. Arrieta     2.62 ERA/3.05 FIP (2.35 FIP last year)
    • J. Lester     2.81 ERA/3.67 FIP (2.92 FIP last year)
    • K. Hendricks  2.19 ERA/3.37 FIP (3.36 FIP last year)
    • J. Lackey     3.41 ERA/3.72 FIP (3.57 FIP last year with Cards)

  • zastyryzryzryzny put in 3.2ip 1h 0bb 3k

    he's great when his control is "on"...problem is it's rarely "on" consistently. he could vault up the cubs prospect list if he ever gets better with that aspect of his game.

  • JD's take was just trying to get in a lefty to better deal with mostly lefty Dodgers lineup.

    My second thought was what you came up with. My first thought was he was trying to light a fire under Hammel.

  • Maybe he was trying to spare him another brutal road start? NY, Colorado...

  • joe got a pitcher up for hammel at nearly the 1st sign of trouble in the 3rd...pulled after 2.1

    not injured and though it wasn't his day so far he wasn't looking like a pure disaster.

    really short leash on him. zastryznzryzryny in.

  • Russell and Soler can attest that Urias has a pretty good curve/slider - two big strikeouts looking to get out of that jam in the first.

    Thank God we'll still have Hawk next season. (cricket cricket cricket)

  • Here's Scully's call on Bryant's 10th-inning homer:

    "And it's a long fly ball, a mean fly ball, and a gone fly ball."
