RHP Jason Hammel replaces OF Quintin Berry on the Active Roster, as the Cubs go from 10 pitchers in the Wild Card game to 11 pitchers in the NLDS. 

if the cubs make it past STL (and molina behind the plate) it'll be interesting to see if they find a home for q.berry on the roster as a running substitution tool.

For Quintin to be in the team (should they get past the Cards) maybe a pitcher gets the axe.

Lester didn't have much movement there in inning one. Doubt the long break between starts helped him. Rizzo popping out way too often the last 6 weeks. 22 pitches for Lackey through 2. Tough start.

Rizzo has been slumping the last couple weeks of the season. Very disappointed it has continued during his penultimate moment of his career to date.

    Honestly, Urias guessed wrong on that one. But he stilled managed to make contact despite being way out in front, so that breaker must have rolled.

    KB having a perfectly adequate KB stretch and it's a highlight. Sigh.

    Chafin may be reconsidering that jalopie after being the man on the mound when the wheels fell off in this one.

    i know we're only 10 games in and you can't get good numbers on that, but this is a full-team hitting slump aside from marisnick and his 12 PA.

    no one on this team is this bad, but all of them doing it at once is crazy.  bad ABs, tons of swings and misses, crap contact...

    upon reflection (and another hit in the 9th) i need to give props to k.bryant...he's a 1-man show right now for the regulars.

    I can pause it for pinch hitting - otherwise I'm locked in as there's nothing else to see here

    Me too, Eric Sogard

    Well, Chafin ... not your night I guess ... looks like its time to catch up on the latest installment of Falcon and the Winter Soldier

    It's kinda starting to feel like this team sucks? But yes this game definitely sucks.

    justin steele warming...seems like his debut is on tap.

    also, this game sucks.

    Luis Urias is not impressed 😩

    steele, wieck, and strop called up.

    btw, strop is a "replacement player" in this move and isn't subject to 40-man roster waiver rules

    cubs covid...chris young tested positive.  j.adam, d.winkler, and b.workman are now on the "injured list"

    Sorry that I couldn't access things for opening day and then got busy for the next couple series. Glad to have a baseball routine to share with you all again!

    Guessing I'm a little late to the game on this; but just read Chafin's twitter about wanting to buy a cheap car to drive around Chicago. He seems like a good dude.

    RHSP Duncan Robinson (June 2019 TJS) has retired.

    Rex Brothers and Tony Wolters reached five years of MLB Service Time this weekend, so Brothers now cannot be sent outright to the minors without his consent (he is out of minor league options) and Wolters (who has a minor league option left) now cannot be optioned or outrighted to the minors without his consent.

    It's not good to play bad teams early because they have the confidence and energy they won't have later in the season after they realize they suck and all is lost.
