Cubs 3, Padres 8 (7/24/14)

Did The Cubs Win? OSS: Tsuyoshi lays an egg, and the Cubs bats (with Luis excepted) fall mostly silent. Three Up 1. Luis Valbuena hit a 3-run HR, which provided the entirety of the Cubs’ scoring. In the best case scenario, Valbuena is a super-DeRosa in 2015, and even if he starts, you don’t feel too bad. 2. Anthony Rizzo actually had a better game than Valbuena, going 1-2 with...

The best defensive plays for the week ending July 22nd

Short week? That’s OK. There was still plenty of great defense to hold us over. July 19th, Rockies vs Pirates – Jared Hughes’ quick double play. This line drive off the bat of Charlie Blackmon was just mere inches away from tying the game. Instead, Jared Hughes snared the liner and fired it over to third to finish the inning ending double play. Talk about bad luck for the...

Cubs 6, Padres 0 (7/23/14)

Did The Cubs Win? OSS: (one of the) 24-year olds homered twice, and the 22-year old homered once. Three Up 1. Anthony Rizzo now leads the NL in HR, and he is sneaking up on the ML lead. I thought Rizzo’s peak was a .250/.350/.500 guy, and he’s at .283/.385/.539 right now. Just enjoy the ride, however long it lasts. 2. Kyle Hendricks had a great stat line, but only a good game...

Padres-Cubs Preview

Although Anthony Rizzo has developed into an All-Star for the Chicago Cubs, he has yet to demonstrate that level of play against his former team. The slugger may be able to turn that around Tuesday night since he is hitting left-handers well and has a homer against the San Diego Padres' Eric Stults, who looks to avoid falling to 0-8 on the road in the opener of a three-game set...
