Quiet day in Cubs-ville, although it does look like the Mets will be calling up their top pitching prospect Noah Syndegaard to pitch on Tuesday vs. the Cubs. The two teams face off next week at Wrigley with newly adorned left field bleachers and Cubs will likely face Colon, Syndegaard, DeGrom and Harvey in the series. No rest for the weary...

As for this weekend and with what looks to be some competitive games next week, be a good time tor remind the Brewers they're not good at baseball.




we rule!! Haha! (Did you see Rizzo hi fiving the fans on way back to dugout?)

Granted I'm not watChing, but seems Pau is doing one of his famous playoff disappearing acts this series?

JD in discussing Rizzo's multiple talents: "That was probably Rizzo dressed up as the Chorizo earlier. Chorizzo."

I wonder if Strop is tipping. He doesn't seem to be fooling anyone. Most of the time they aren't even flinching on the slider and maldanado was out in front of a 95 mph fastball just now.

"Jarrod Parker was removed from Friday's minor league rehab start with an injury to his pitching elbow." damn. he's currently rehabbing from his 2nd TJ surgery. 26 years old.

Reading post game comments, the great Maddonini seems a bit miffed about the effort coming out of the bullpen lately. I wonder what that means. It's not like he can wave one of his magic wands and fix it.
