Another lefty Padre starter and JHey gets a breather. Robel in LF (batting 5th) Almora CF (leadoff) and Bryant in RF

Mike Leake? Check that guy's locker for a genie lamp.

AZ Phil, your writeup here suggests a player on the restricted list in Zobrist’s situation cannot be reinstated between August 1 and October 31. Does Zobrist actually have to be reinstated this month to play at all the rest of the season?

base hit to lead off top 9th...aww.
killer performance and there should be enough in the tank to easily get the CG (only 79 pitches).

m.leake (SEA) perfect through 7ip, 67 pitches

STL down by 7...so they score 10 in the 6th...and barely manage to win a 12-11 game.

Of course, the Cubs knew he was delicate when they signed him, but Maddon pushed him anyway. How much value is there to an elite player who can’t be used very much?

Bote’s numbers trending down unfortunately - not far from Russell‘s

Bryant’s always been pretty good in LF. It’s RF where he looks most awkward to me. Something about staying on the left side of the field maybe. I think you’ll see Bryant and Schwarber platooned in LF going forward, though that might depend on Bote’s ability to start hitting LHP again.

Cubs win and this Kimbrel pickup paying dividends

he's a low level jerk, but i find it hard to hate the guy when he doesn't try ducking an interview to explain wtf his problem is.

Too many of our relief arms have excelled at blowing late leads. Strop and Edwards have been the primary ones.

SD defense is the player of the game.

Should the Cubs go on to win this game ... wow. Some crazy-stupid self inflicted damage that they’ve somehow skirted.

Strop has become very adroit at blowing leads giving up the long ball (same thing last Friday coming off the all star break?)
