Comments

Not surprised about Lester but bit surprised about Hendricks. Guessing that if something happens to Arietta right away they go to Lester but if they've burned relievers and are in extra innings they go to Hendricks.

I have never been this excited and nervous for a playoff game. I think it's the first time since 2003 I thought we had a real shot at everything and then I assumed they were going to win and was maybe over confident. Now I know they have the talent to but also know they have their share of weaknesses. And I like this team and these players so much more. Go Cubs is all I can say. Arghhhh.

TBS pregame predictions: Dusty-Pirates, but says he'd predict Cubs if game was in Wrigley. Pedro- Cubs. Sheffield-Cubs. pass the sour grapes to Dusty

4-0 Hell yea! Keep it going! This Pirates team is pesky. Keep them tamed!

No one was more thankful for that ground ball than Addison Russell. It was his chance at redemption.

Now we need to prepare for the Dodgers by playing a few practice games against the Cards.

BOB: I doubt very much that Matt Szczur will be on the Cubs LDS roster. If he wasn't on the Wild Card roster (when the Cubs went with 15 position players), he won't be on the LDS roster (when the Cubs will go with 13 or 14 position players). As it is, at least one of the three RH hitting outfielders who were on the Cubs WC roster (Denorfia, Jackson, and Soler) could get bumped off the LDS roster (probably Soler).

With last night's win in Pittsburgh, the Cubs have tied the Pirates with 98 wins, and are only 2-1/2 games behind the Cardinals. No reason why the Cubs can't finish the post-season with the best winning percentage in baseball (regular season & post-season combined).

    pretty damn bold to let neris close a game after recent performances...nailed it, though.

  • Dolorous Jon Lester (view)

    Very much so. It was noticeable to us just watching, they definitely knew. Hopefully that’s a good sign and it won’t be long term.

  • crunch (view)

    ben brown out of the pen in the 7th.

    guess we now know his current fate.

  • crunch (view)

    for a good chunk of this recent streak you could obviously see he wasn't swinging as hard.  they gotta know that in the dugout, even down to the mph with how much stuff they track these days.

    his timing is kinda tuned into how hard he swings.

  • Dolorous Jon Lester (view)

    That hand injury he’s nursing is killing him. And doing no favors for my fantasy team 

  • crunch (view)

    morel hits his 2nd hit in his last 10 games.

    2 hits in 39 PA (4bb)

  • TarzanJoeWallis (view)

    Won and lost 20 in the same year too. Quite a feat!

  • Dolorous Jon Lester (view)

    I agree, I watched a few innings of a Tigers game a few days ago and he does look like he’s put on a few pounds this year.

  • Cubster (view)

    Wilber Wood? 

    Started both games of a DH. Problem solved.

  • crunch (view)

    alright, i'm gonna take that on.

    hendricks as a closer...you obviously got started on 4/20 celebrations way before I did today.
