Comments

that's 3 starters no one would guess would be 2022 MLB cubs starters and a 4th that was supposed to be traded mid-season.

bit surprised and pleased that a.sampson hasn't given up 100 or so homers in his 88+ innings.  maybe he can be 2023 alec mills.  speaking of, i hope this team is done with alec mills.  we got sampson, assad, kllian...they can do long + spot start + injury...

i'm ready for the off-season.

s.suzuki's paternity leave extended and he's been put on the restricted list.

he's expected to be back some time within this series with PIT.

wesn Ks 3 on 9 pitches...immaculate inning.

4th in franchise history...latroy hawkins had the last one.

ive integrated my life into the internet rather deeply for someone that doesn't mix internet and "real life" at all.  i like keeping the separation even though i'm deeply involved in both "worlds."

wife has her kindle, i have multiple computers in multiple rooms.  we both spend a lot of time together and on "our devices."

i'm on the internet a lot, but it's not most of what i'm doing with my time.  i puke out thoughts and go do other things.

Hey, it's time to spin the Mark Leiter, Jr. Wheel of Fortune!  Where will the spinner stop?!?

crazy amount of "small ball" being played since the break by the cubs.  a lot of it very recently.

i can't recall the last time i've seen the cubs bunt and hit/run so much.

Pujols #700 !!!!!!

yeah, the big reason he's done it is because of his long contract and the sunk cost...but wow...700.

still no s.suzuki...maybe tomorrow.

nico available off the bench.

also, i know options are sketchy and 2022 is a partial audition for 2023...but i don't wanna see z.mckinstry hitting leadoff, or even a starter option going into 2023...

don mattingly and the marlins have "mutually agreed" to part ways at the end of the season.

i thought he would hang out with the team forever or something.

the whole franmil reyes situation seems to be sorting itself out.

bat has been dead for quite a while.

weird seeing him play RF today.  he did it poorly, as expected, but nothing terrible.

Kyle Schwarber hits 2 HR's today, now at 42. Phils inching ahead of the Brewers in the final wild card slot. WSox eliminated today in a week of epic failure. Kris Bryant goes a whole season as a Rockie without a home field HR. Nagging injuries are no fun.

9 games left in the season, starting tuesday.

3 vs phillies, 6 vs reds (back-to-back, 3 home then 3 on the road).

    Okay, this is completly off the discussion. I have noticed several times that organist John Benedeck has been  playing a phrase from the first movement of Carl Orff's Carmina Burana ("O Fortuna"). He has done some hilariously hip music for opposing players over the last couple of years (succeeding the immortal Gary Pressey), but I don't get this one. I ask the very diverse TCR community to help me out! What's the connection? I can't find any pattern, but maybe it's for two-strike counts. ("O, Fortuna")

    i say we rip the bandaid off.

    hendricks pitches every inning, every day, every game...in a row...until he's on the IL.

    Steele will throw 3 live innings in AZ on Friday.

    Seiya did "light" baseball activities today.

    We just need to hang in for a couple of weeks

    bleh.  cubs lose.

    day off tomorrow then it's 16 games in a row with no break.

  • crunch (view)

    dude threw 4 innings of 4 run ball and lowered his ERA...improvement!

    but yeah, i'm done.  there's a guy with 2 pitches in the pen named ben brown that seems to be doing a bit better than hendricks's 2 pitches.

    steele...how your leg, bro?

    For the love of baseball and all that's holy, please - no more Kyle Hendricks. 

  • crunch (view)

    hendricks still gets some K's, but dude is just throwing complex batting practice.

    sometimes it gets hit where a glove happens to be, sometimes it isn't.

    two pitches, both hittable.

    460ft HR later...1.1ip of perfection is gone.

  • crunch (view)

    HENDRICKS PERFECT GAME THROUGH 1 IP.

    i'm just trying to be supportive over here.  go sportsball.

  • Cubster (view)

    No Happ. Not sure if he’s still just day to day. Amaya catching Hendricks. Busch hitting cleanup.  OF is Canario, Bellinger, Tauchman. Cooper DH. Chilly (around 50 degrees) but sunny.
