    110%...unlike the decision to put in t.miller to protect a 4 run lead with 1 on and get the last out of the game.

    this is the most over-managed thing i've seen of counsell with the cubs.

  • Eric S (view)

    Seemed like the right decision from my vantage! 😂

  • Eric S (view)

    What is this whole clutch hit/score multiple runs thing the Cubs are doing? They can do that? And it’s legal? Nice!

  • crunch (view)

    this game got really f'n good.

  • crunch (view)

    scoring from 2nd on a 60ft hit...a hit off the pitcher's elbow...ow.

    megill walking off the mound towards where the ball was rolling was a poor decision even if he was nope'ing himself out of the game to the dugout.

  • Eric S (view)

    Vazquez with the heads up running - Cubs could could steal this one back. 

  • Eric S (view)

    Is Adames going to steal the Cubs soul two days in a row? Yep

  • crunch (view)

    hector neris...still not a closer.

  • crunch (view)

    morel has three 3-walk games in may.

  • crunch (view)

    wesn gets the inning...and a single after a K to break the no-hitter (combined).

    it was 100% the right call to not have brown out to work the 8th.  dunno who would argue otherwise since tommy lasorda and frank robinson are no longer alive.
