With a day off today, we can all sit back and enjoy the lovely post-McGriff glow. If Baylor actually lets Matt Stairs play left field while Rondell White is hurt, that makes the lineup significantly better than if he decides to keep playing Delino DeShields out there. With The Franchise (finally) being sent down to make room for McGriff, that means one less outfielder out there, which means Stairs might actually get some playing time. He's not much with his glove, but he's the second-best offensive player on the team and he should be playing nearly every day.

  • Nice inning from Carl Edwards Jr - two straight quality appearances for a pen that could use it.

  • Arrieta pitches like crap and gets a W, Lester pitches brilliantly and doesn't. Baseball!

    Man, have we been giving up a lot of 2-out runs lately. C'mon Hector -- Eugenio Suarez??? Sheesh.

  • To have Billy Hamilton break your shut-out with an HR is like Iceland winnng in soccer.

  • Yeah - I was waiting for someone else to comment first so they could shoulder the blame should cubbery prevail.

  • he'd actually have to get through these last 2 innings in 13 or less pitches to pull off an actual Maddux (CG in less than 100 pitches)...and I probably jinxed the whole game with my comment so I'll shut up now.

  • An efficient one-hitter through seven innings - seems reasonable to me.

    Quite the contrast from last night

  • It's really quite enjoyable watching Lester dissect the strike zone and a lineup like this...dare I say Maddux-like?

  • Eloy Jimenez and Jeimer Candelario named to Futures Game...

    See past Cubs' participants here. Let me know if you see a mistake or any other info that may prove useful and I can add it.
