Teams need to watch tape on Granderson's AB's against Hendricks. Dude was like "oh, all you do is throw fastballs outer edge of the zone...I'll just pound one oppo to LC". He did that twice in 2 AB against him.

Easy to say from the couch, but I would think if these guys know exactly what hendricks is going to throw they could hit it with ease. It's basically fastball changeup on or off the outer edge with the occasional change of pace pitch inside or curveball. I don't know why guys don't look for the outer edge FB and pound oppo like Granderson did.

Same weak ass lucky crap as yesterday for the Cubs. Other teams get something going and can't cash in.


In fairness, the Cards basically had a constant rally against us for 3 games and never cashed in

Who is this announcer? Just referred to Aguilar as Aguilera in promoting Baez as MVP...

On the plus side, I can probably free up my night if the Cubs win. I don't really feel the incentive to watch with the home WC locked up unless we can catch them.

We literally clinched by a guy faceplanting going around 3rd after Shaw threw one 100 feet wide.

Whoever he is, he can stop wasting his breath. Baez isn't winning MVP.

What I find hilarious from the Baez supporters is that the statistical gap between Yelich and Baez is getting wider, you hear them throwing a lot more harder to quantify things, like, "He's such a good baserunner" or "he's so versatile."

K. You realize that Yelich is an elite baserunner in his own right who steals just as much as Baez and is thrown out much less, and plays all 3 OF positions with regularity, right?

I thought that it was Moose. I didn't say we haven't been lucky lately too.

Dumbest argument I’ve heard yet about Baez. He argued Yelich numbers mean less because he’s got more around him in the lineup. Said hitting between Cain and Aguilera make it easier for Yelich to put up numbers.

For one it’s AGUILAR, and for two take a glance at the Cubs lineup around Baez. Pretty good thump there too. Sure not realistic looking at team offensive stats.

I heard that too. The other announcer commented on how the Cubs have significantly more run scored than the Brewers. Which virtually disqualifies the argument. Also factor in Yelich has played 13 less games due to injury and has comparable or better counting stats.

It would be nice if the Cardinals showed something resembling a fight in them. They do realize they are still only 1 game out of the Wild Card, right?

Jeez cards, they are in a prolonged state of dumb baseball

They make me me hate them even when rooting for them to do something against the cobs.

You're forgetting how good Christina Aguilera was in July. If she never was injured we'd have this division lead +10.

Ahh right, it was the other 3B we were playing at the same time. Shaw was playing 3B over by first at the time and watched it fly away into RF.

If we can't win the division, a Dodgers/Rockies tie is probably a good thing to root for. Divisional tiebreaker game Monday with both teams hopefully leaving it all on the line and the loser headed to Milwaukee for the WC game the next day. Could be a big advantage.

Wainwright is a decent hitter but why were they not pinch hitting for him there? You have to act as if you're down 3-0 in a 7 game series or something here. This is your only chance and you have to take risks. Pickoff play made it moot but if they have to burn their bullpen after Waino to get some pinch hitters in there, so be it.

So can we count on the Tigers putting in as much effort as the Pirates and Cardinals?

I am not Shea Vucinich

Question regarding wildcard...I noticed Kershaw is the probable starter tomorrow. Would he really start a potential wildcard game on 2 days rest?


I'd assume Walker Buehler/bullpen. Believe hes been their 2nd best pitcher, save Kershaw for 3 if necessary series playing.
