Re: 10/20 Cubs (Lester) vs Dodgers (Maeda) 7 p.m., FS1

I have a feeling the Dodgers will hit Lester better than they did in game 1. I could see 3-4 runs from them. Cubs offense? Really not sure, could be good, could be bad. Very streaky.

Re: 10/19 Cubs (Dickbag McHorseteeth) vs Dodgers (Urias) 7 p.m., FS1

This is likely a loss. Urias is similar to Hill. The only difference is that he's younger, but he'll probably go 6 innings. Unless Lackey can hold them to 1 run or less by that point, I don't see the Cubs winning tomorrow. This series will end in 5 most likely barring a Kershaw collapse. G'day. I'm...

Re: 10/18 NLCS Game 3: Cubs (Jake) @ Dodgers (Rich Hill) & Stupid Old Umpire 7:00 PM CT FS1/670

Lineup tomorrow: Fowler - CF Bryant - 3B Baez - SS Contreras - LF Coghlan - 2B Ross - C Almora - RF Rizzo - 1B Rizzo should be leading off. At least he works the count. Fowler, he can bat 8 with the off chance he hits himself on base At this point, he might as well get plunked at every AB. Need to ...

Everybody calm down.

At least 1 of which pitched by the greatest pitcher of our generation and probably a few innings in game 7.

I'm just waiting for that inning when the Cubs hammer the horsefeathers out of Rich Hill. Still waiting..... You're gonna be waiting for awhile, they can't hit the curve. Luckily, they're upping his pitch count and he hasn't thrown more than 93 pitches since joining the Dodgers so maybe they'll kic...

They got shutout by Clayton Kershaw. They scored 19 runs the three games before that. So we're going to ignore everything about those runs and pretend all is good? OK nevermind keep being cubbyvirus. 90% of the runs the Cubs have scored are either from their pitchers or against bad relievers. You c...

Weird time to make that comment considering it was montero that just hit.

I don't blame Montero at all. Russell has to put the ball in play. Montero is going to be useless against a lefty, we knew this coming in.

We have 162 games of data that shows the Cubs struggle against the curve. It's not going to suddenly change unless Rich Hill loses it at some point.

Hate this matchup for the Cubs. Rich Hill is a guy like Matt Moore that can completely shutdown this Cubs lineup with his breaking ball (Cubs were 24th in baseball this year hitting the breaking ball).
