Last 2 games were classics, no matter who you were pulling for. Jansen was one of those top-end closers you don't want to sign for next year on both days. Shaky.

Very. The Dodgers are going to need to upgrade that pen this season or they, at best, will be looking at a third straight runner up.

Yeesh... The Cubs get mauled: https://www.mlb.com/news/josh-bell-goes-deep-against-cubs


Bell 2x+ his HR total from last year and is one away from his career high.
The offensive numbers are staggering.

Another loss, and Kimbrel gets the blown save/loss.

That's a shame.

Theo's ability to evaluate pitching is a sight to behold.

Kimbrel didn't lose that game. Playing a catcher in right field lost the game. Thanks Joe. I love a Heartbreaking Cubs Loss.

Joe Maddon continues to play his players out of position even though the risks of these types of hybrid lineups have shown those risks play out.

I think he made a big mistake by not walking the bases loaded to set up the double play when there were runners on 2nd and 3rd with 1 out.

That was fun to watch.

Ruh roh, the Cubs and White Sox are tied right now in the loss column among MLB teams.

The Cubs hace really avoided significant injuries for most of their "window"- I think the law of averages is catching up with them- whether it's the IL or just guys banged up- and that's exposing their weak farm system- no real help in Iowa or inventory to use for trade bait. Their lack of ability to develop pitching exacerbated the problem- leading to trading Torres, Jimenez and Cease to acquire pitching along with huge FA contracts to Lester (which worked out), Hamels (less so) and Darvish (not at all).

They have ridden the Bryant/Baez/Rizzo/Contreras horse about as far as they can- without reinforcements- they might not be able to bounce back.

There is a great article in the Athletic about this today. Heyward and Bryant were banged up yesterday, leading to Contreras having to play in RF. The starting staff is getting older, and really showing this year. There is zero depth in the farm system. The article discusses the possibility of them being sellers, though I am doubtful because the Brewers have been equally as bad and inconsistent. I don't know if the cubs have anything in their farm to bring them help in the trade market, though they probably have some great pieces that would bring in a big prospect hall (Gasp: Bryant).

I am really enjoying this run of crap.

Oooooh. Does this mean we'll see screaming headlines in the Sun-Times and Tribune and reporters loudly demanding that the Cubs trade Bryant for prospects?

The Padres take one from the Cubbies today. My buddy and I were talking about the game and he was telling me how Machado was not hustling down the line. Once carrying his bat to first base and then on a DP he hit into he just jogged down the line.

So, so glad JR did not sign him.

Who needs an .856 OPS and an elite 3B glove—who, as fate would have it, would be capable of filling in at SS right now—when we have a guy who can dump Gatorade on sideline reporters and 3B coaches?
