Cubs @ Reds: Hendricks vs. Roark (Game 39)

CHC: RHP Kyle Hendricks (2-4, 3.19 ERA)
CIN: RHP Tanner Roark (3-1, 3.27 ERA)
First pitch 5:40pmCDT

Hendricks has been fantastic in his last two starts. He followed up his 81-pitch shutout with an eight inning start allowing 1 unearned run. Watch out for Joey Votto, 8-18 against Hendricks but cold to start the year.

Tanner Roark has been pretty good in his first 8 starts of 2019. Last time out he pitched 6 shutout innings allowing three hits and two walks against the A's. He's been solid against the current Cubs, who have a .653 collective OPS in 95 ABs. Kris Bryant is 5-11 with a homer against him.

Sorry for the belated post!

ALMORA!!!

wow.  glove.

k.hendricks with a 3 hit night.

he's given up 3 hits through 8 innings, too.

nice.

heyward with an 0-4, 1bb night.

aside from a walk-off homer, he's had a really crappy couple of weeks.

cubs win!

highly likely STL and MIL will also win tonight, though.

S'ok.  Let 'em chase us and make no progress.

    Tom's older brother is an ass, even with an embarrassing apology.

    some higher-end high school kids not expected to go very early in the draft are taking themselves out of the draft...including some top-100 ranked talent.

    Last night, my son was shot in the eye with a rubber bullet while peacefully protesting for justice for George Floyd. His story is not unique. Countless others have also experienced this use of excessive police force while trying to have their voices heard.

    But he has vicious dogs ready to kill the nig***. Oh wait, thugs. He's a real man.

    "this idea isn't a proposal at all and may actually be a measure that is forced into action by the league if the two sides can't sort out the financial details for a longer season."

    MLBPA: Over our dead bodies. Followed by Trump sending in the military to force ballplayers and fans to perform like puppets on strings with fans to yell (and cough and sneezing) at the umpires. Ah, baseball before Jackie Robinson. The Trump Republican Party: Bring back the Cheating/Pandemic  1919 White only - White Sox. Say it ain't so, Joe.

    Trump waiving a bible in front of the church is a total disgrace.

    ...but now there's this...

    "According to ESPN's Jeff Passan, Major League Baseball views a season of around 50 games as a "last resort" option should there be no agreement with the MLBPA.

    Jeff Passan @JeffPassan
    Major League Baseball intends to propose a shorter season in which they would pay players a full prorated share of their salaries, sources told ESPN. The league believes the late March agreement allows it to set the schedule, and that this would fulfill players’ pro rata desire.

    Minor League Baseball makes the cover of SI!  Two years ago, I would have been elated.  Today, it's depressing (like the article.)

    Crunch, thanks. I can be a jerk at times, but you bailed me out. Btw I'm the whitest white boy (who grew up next to Wrigley and also worked at my dad's warehouse next to Cabrini Green). I'm truly ashamed of this president. I don't believe anyone sane wants more of him. Go Cubs!! I miss Bobby Dernier's first home run against the Padres.

    'we have a donald trump problem, but he may be a highly advanced and dangerous symptom rather than the actual disease.'

    Surely true, dear Crunch. Trump has emboldened the ugly fact that America's cruel underbelly is still racism and police brutality that forwards that original sin. 

    America NEEDS its HEROES.

    Yes, many players are millionaires too. However, a good percentage of MLB Owners are billionaires. If there's no MLB in 2020 that's on 30 owners, not the players no matter how the Press spins things.
