TT is so fucking bi polar sometimes.
I love Orel, but is he doing fentanyl ? Dave Roberts is a big advocate of beating the shift with a bunt ?
Serious faux pax.
Fuck off kimbrel and davey
Dodger lead in the 9th. Check.
Kimbrel in. Check.
Gets ahead of first batter. Check.
Walks first batter. Check.
Fuck it. I've seen this movie before..
Didn't watch/listen tonight. How close was the "Hoerner fly out to deep center" to going out. Because, I swear, if Kimbrel blew another Kershaw gem, I may have burst a blood vessel in my head. Can't that guy ever pitch a drama free ninth?
Ball was just shy of the track in dead center. Hit a little over 380.
To answer your last question......no.
I didn't watch either. I gamecasted it the last three innings, and while I'm glad they won, as you said... the drama is nonsense.
Just the needless pecking at the strike zone by Kimbrel ... is it in his head or are his mechanics screwed up? I don't know but he's giving me a Don Stanhouse vibe everytime.
I had faith the pitching brain trust in this organization to fix what ails Kimbrel. They're done so well with other reclamation projects. So far, not so good with Hillbilly Craig.
For every great pitch he makes there are three clueless ones. Great example was the final pitch of the game. It was unhittable. Earlier in the AB he threw a couple of other sliders that should have been crushed.
Still a lot of bite in that old Kershaw dog. Really only poor game he's pitched was the Colorado game. Only recall one solidly hit ball against him last night, the double by Hoerner. Could have finished eight with a little help from his defense.
Dodger didn't exactly wear the ball out, either. For a good portion of the game Lamb's HR was the only hard hit ball.
As great as Trea has been he has his head scratching moments. Chasing a shitty pitch and popping up with the bases loaded preceding the Freeman two run single. Then the shot hop throw that allowed the Cubs to score their second run in the 7th. Almost got Barnes killed.
Journeyman Drew Smyly going for the Cubbies today. Expect another five innings of shutout ball.
lux in left, trayce in cf…
and why is a .159 hitter the dh?
cubs 12, dodgers 3
I hate you
i went to walk the dog and told the wife, “i fully expect it to be 3-0 when i get back…”
i hate me too @Chiefdodgerslkrs24
I am at this game. Bout to run on the field and strangle Lux myself
Did he misplay a ball in left?
On the positive side, he's hitting over .300 now, and I think that's the hitter he can be the rest of his career.
He misplayed 2 balls in left
It sucks for Lux that he's being forced into a position that's not natural for him. I can see putting him out there in a pinch, but Roberts has him there way too often. Why Alberto at 2B instead of Lux? I think there are too many infielders on this roster.
And a great call by Dave calling Bickford's number at this point in the game. He's such a scumbag.
If SF beats SD, then, it will all stay at 7.
8-5 now? Wtf is going on ?
9-8. Only the 3rd inning. Holy Moly.
9-8 Dodgers now .....
This Cubs team eats may dicks, man...
