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).

    i don't think his confidence or ego any has any setting other than "10"...unless his goes to "11."

    that said, while these traits can give way to a terrible person or teammate, it seems like his sky high...ummm self determination...isn't toxic.  he seems to handle failure well and enjoy other people's success on the team aside from his own.

    Maybe a key moment in PCA’s career tonight. He was thrown behind twice by former big leaguer Wily Peralta. No warning and Iowa’s manager is tossed defending his player. Next pitch, PCA drills over the right field wall, followed by an epic bat flip. His confidence had to be sky high after that.

    Next at bat he drills a double and then scores. PCA 9 for 18 with 3 homers since being optioned.

    almost 2 hours into a rainless rain delay.

    AND now it's postponed.  july 13th double header.

    Good rehab start for Wicks at Iowa: 33 pitches, 2 IP, 2 hits, 0 runs, 0 walks, 3 Ks. 

    Good night for PCA as well with another HR and a double.

    PCA has had 2 hits in all 4 games since going back to iowa...4th game still in progress.

    3 homers.

    looking strongly like MIL. PIT, and CIN will win tonight.  CIN still has 4 innings to protect 4 runs vs LAD.

    I thought this article quote from the Athletic by Jim Bowden was interesting (since I don’t know either reliever mentioned, Finnegan or Foley). The topic was Cubs getting bullpen help but he says the A’s probably will make Miller a starter eventually. 
    I don’t think the A’s are going to trade Miller because he has a chance to become a No. 1 starter if they develop him working toward that goal. If I’m the Cubs, I’d focus on targeting relievers such as Kyle Finnegan of the Nationals and Jason Foley of the Tigers who will come at a much lower price than Caissie and Alcántara.”

    I need to partially concede on this in that Bellinger’s strike out rate is considerably lower than other players. That said, it wasn’t necessarily my main point.

    I can see players like Swanson, Hoerner, Happ and Suzuki doing things like laying down bunts, slapping the ball the other way, etc. Focusing on contact and putting the ball in play. That just doesn’t seem to be the stuff Bellinger is made of. And that’s ok - you don’t necessarily expect that from your main power guy.

    I wasn’t meaning to put Bellinger down in this instance. More excluding him from this particular conversation.
