Sure seems Claudio if only faced lefties he'd be really good. Check stats: 440 OPS vs lefties.


For Loogy his .730 OPS for righties really isnt that bad either

B-R.com has .793 OPS vs RHB.

Not great, but not terrible.


For his career or this year? It says .723 for this year where I am looking

I'll take it.

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

Two opposite field sacrifice flies today. Just going with the pitch and driving it well enough. Good situational hitting.

Nick Ramirez got called up today. What in interesting career arc for that guy.


With how fast we pulled pitchers last year (needed plenty of pinch hitters) ... I was surprised he never got a look.

It's so much fun to watch victories playing good baseball while the opposition plays bad baseball. This is a fundamentally sound, quality baseball team a la the Giants in the early 2010s that won 3 championships.

IDK I guess I'm just not sure on using Albers at all there with the top 3 guys available. Obviously the non double switch was the start of it. Hopefully it works out and we still win, but maybe a mistake there regardless


Yeah that would've surely been Burnes' inning there had he not been pulled for Gamel. Albers made 1 bad pitch in his 2 hitters faced, so let's not get too carried away crucifying him. Contreras had a great AB and hit a tough pitch for a single, and Bote fouled off a bunch of good pitches until he got an outer half fastball to punch up the middle.


Good point. Almost had the K on that AB too but it popped out of the catcher's glove. Who knows, maybe he gets them out from there if Yaz held on.

Also, I'd guess th 3 run led to Albers and them gambling a bit so to speak. 1-2 runs maybe they go Junior right away

Wrong base Haywood.
It’s great we seem to bring out the worst from the Cubbies!

Ever since that asinine commentary from Hamels, we’ve been in their heads and dominating them.

Who is our mop up reliever? I'd rather save Guerra. Houser? Smith?

Against the Cubs I dont know if I go to a mop up reliever unless we are up 7 or more. Go Guerra again and then maybe save Hader if needed but the Cubs can score in bunches.

Yeah, two innings only up by five isn't mop up duty against the Cubs.

"You're not going to have him when you want him and you're going to run out of games. He can't pitch 90 games. It's just not going to work. If anyone thinks it's going to work, show me how."- Craig Counsell on Josh Hader.

Agree. Junior's already being used and didn't throw many pitches. Might as well go with him in the 8th then reassess for the 9th. Hopefully don't need Hader.

Knowing that Hader is there if needed makes the switch possible, but Guerra another inning wouldn't be bad.

I think they holding houser back for Peralta game, probably Smith.

A couple months from now our pen should be so strong it could be jeffress.

If they are holding a reliever back just for Peralta’s start, I think that’s a mistake. It leaves the pen continuously short handed.

Burch Smith is probably the guy for the 9th if the lead is 5+.

Actually, they pitched him a couple days before his opener, so he could pitch I think.

Cub fans incredulous that Baez could be rung up on a pitch right down the middle.
