Jon Lester vs. Mike Leake
Rob G.'s Archives
There was snow, there were home runs, but there was no victory. Cubs try to secure the series win with the roster leftovers this afternoon.
Kyle Hendricks vs. Jeff Locke
Well last night was fun...I had my KANG!!! headline all set to go before the 9th inning comeback.
Jason Hammel vs. Vance Worley tonight.
We're just an Albert Almora and Kyle Schwarber away from a full deck of prospects.
I really didn't think they were going to play this game. Hopefully the rain stays away...
Jake Arrieta vs. A.J. Burnett
Probably the two most talked about teams from the offseason face-off at Wrigley today.
Jason Hammel vs. James Shields
Let's put this all after the fold, so AZ Phil's piece get its proper notice.
The FIRST PLACE Cubs take on the NOT FIRST PLACE Reds.
Jake Arrieta vs. Anthony Spellcheck...
Cubs return home in a battle for for first place against the Reds.
Jon Lester vs. Mike Leake
Cubs go for their first series win of the year...a little short-handed.
Kyle Hendricks vs. Jordan Lyle
f'real...didn't even streak or try to beat up a base coach or anything.
After the game, jacos was DFA'd. #nohelp
Richard proving once again that, if you are really bad, it doesn't matter which hand you throw with.
Maybe time to find out what we have in Edwards?
Oof -- ugly game at the plate and from the pen, which was the hero yesterday.
Sorry Jake -- you deserved better.
k.bryant playing SS...because fuck it, that's why.
g.soto is doing horrible in AAA...unfortunately.
unless they decide to bring up g.concepcion or make a trade we might have richard around a little longer.
...that said, it wouldn't surprise me to see him DFA'd after the game...the "lefty specialist" just let 3 lefties in a row get on base. ugg.
Ahhh Richard with your 6.00+ ERA as a short reliever...
You ain't gonna be on no Playoff roster.
I'll give this to Richard: he looks the part of a good pitcher, straight out of central casting. It's a shame he struggles with the getting guys out part of the game.
Didn't take Richard long. He is an absolute disaster.
Thru seven innings the Cubs have more errors than hits and Zobrist has struck out 3 times. And now Richard is pitching.
These things do not add up to victory
It was from about 15 years ago
Guess I was on tv
Vin Scully sang the seventh-inning stretch. Along with all the great things he is known for, he can sing! He sounded like Willie Nelson out there. And he gave a nice shout-out to Harry. What a class guy.
I'm thinking Kazmir did not get the memo he was supposed to pitch like a tomato can tonight. Jeesh
yeah, she's not on this game, though.
they keep talking about things that aren't this game...a lot...rather than calling this game, doing split screen coverage of other games, doing split screen studio banter, and they just finished cutting away from the game totally (no split screen) to cover another game while missing rizzo's K and the first 2 pitches of zobrist's AB.
ESPN...because screw you, you weren't really tuning in to watch this.
Phil, I think I read an earlier take that you don't see much of an ML career for Brooks? I kinda thought when he was acquired it was as depth for this year, but with an eye on the Cahill type swing role next year?
Then again he did get hit around pretty bad in his big league time last year.
