  • Did anybody see that Zobrist strikeout?

    That was extremely disappointing.

  • Strangest win of the year, and one of the sweetest. Twice I thought it was easily in the bag, then after the first 2 hitters in the 9th I thought all was lost. Big game for Grimm, Strop & Rondon. But, man, those Cards can hit for power.

  • Very satisfying, gut-check win today. The beers on the trip back to Chicago are going to taste fantastic.

  • It's still very early but this game felt very important to me and probably knocked 2 years off my life. Seemed like every inning was big.

  • This is the exact game that the Cubs would have lost in years past to the Cardinals.

  • Arrieta starting. Leads of 6-1 and 9-4. You don't expect to have such a sense of relief when they win.

  • At least the end result was worth the wait.

  • I guess he's better than what they've had. He started out like the Babe there.

  • Fair enough, but Castro isn't really very good.

  • I can just hear Pat Hughes chortling "typical Cubs-Cards game..."

  • As long as Maddon uses him against RH he is good. Against LH - not so much.

    His recent HR's obviously have not been great pitches.

    So, let's just say my personal confidence in the guy is not there yet.

  • not that I'm agreeing with E-Man in anyway here, but Warren's FIP and peripherals are not really good (5.20 FIP/5.19 BB/9/.128 BABIP), although his actual results are a lot better. Well until today...

    Trade was also to make room for Zobrist and it'll be a few years before we can really judge it.

  • Eventually, the Maddon "play everyone everywhere" thing was going to create a problem.
