Yes, he went to the Ted Valentine school of officiating

Arrieta should bean him for not calling the game the right way.

Was hilarious last night that Schwarber had short-sleeves on while everyone else was freezing to death.

All I know is Arrieta has a golden arm, Schwarber always comes up clutch in the playoffs, and we will hit dongs tonight.

I remember him picking the Pirates in the WC game, then acting happy for the Cubs afterwards.

Re: 10/13 Cardinals (Lackey) @ CUBS (HAMMEL), TBS, 3:37 CT

Matt Snyder @MattSnyderCBS and now Molina out. Not surprising Damn, I kind of liked 2 pitchers in the lineup. Cruz is in..I dont know much about him. isn't he pretty bad with the bat? Yes, but streets ahead of Molina with no thumb. Worse framing numbers than Molina by quite a bit , so that helps ag...

Would think that everyone who pitched yesterday could go an inning at least... Wood maybe 2 since he threw 1 pitch.

You have Rodney & Grimm who are fresh too.

Re: 10/13 Cardinals (Lackey) @ CUBS (HAMMEL), TBS, 3:37 CT

I would prefer not having La Stella and Coghlan in the lineup Both have looked pretty bad recently, I don't really care about handedness that much Cogs had a pretty hard hit ball in his first AB last night for a single. Looked terrible striking out in his second, but I'm not sure you'll get much be...

Re: Defensive Replacements: Are They Worthwhile

The strategy's a pretty good one, although I would have been tempted to leave Soler in for one more at-bat.

I'm calling Lackey getting chased in the 2nd inning. Big game from Rizzo.

Lots of walks and dongs.

I think we'll see multiple players with big games for the Cubs with the wind howling out, but Bryant is going to go off now that we're back at Wrigley.

These sorts of crappy zones play into our weakness as a team.

I'm sure it's been discussed ad nauseam in this thread, but wtf was with them hitting Arrieta? This is the playoffs; act like you are the ones who have been there before.

What's the logic of Schwarber in RF and Bryant in LF or is that a typo?


LF is more difficult to play in Pittsburgh than RF
