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.


Mike Schildt is probably a decent enough manager but he's a deer in the headlights in this last week.

Maybe it's inexperience and maybe it's panic, but you could tell ever since the early LOOGY move against Yelich the other day, he's in over his head right now.

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.


Buehler is starting sunday fyi. I assume they'd either pull him back or he'd be 100% off limits. Especially being such a young arm.

Probably because he is a free agent after this year and he may even retire so they are going to give him every chance to go as deep as he can. I totally get it.

Baez is a human rusty gate in the wind so often, swinging at everything...it's impressive to me that the brewers managed to walk him close to 10 times - probably why they pitched him so well - don't throw strikes and let him get himself out.

I'm not sure if you were being serious there but that's insane. They need to try to win the game. You can celebrate his career later.

OOOOOO...they HBP Carpenter. Any chance that was intentional? Maybe light a bit of an FU spark?

So the Cardinals are throwing in the towel?

Horrible showing for a team playing for their lives.

So that's the priority over a playoff race for them?

I'm going by gameday, so if someone is watching you tell me. I'm also tracking the Cardinals in game thread and it seems he was legit hit. Yes...I really don't feel like doing work anymore today

There we go. Not over yet. The Cubs bullpen is fallible, and their top arms have gotten a lot of work lately.

Damn. Thought they tied it there. Judging from 35K collective groans, so did Cubs fans.

Maybe gameday is wrong, but how do cards hitters not absolutely destroy 87 mph middle middle? If they can't hit that...what exactly can they hit?
