Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, Sep 18

So, who’s the better start: Doug Fister @MIA or Felix Hernandez @LAA? That’s what the rankings are for! (They also say Fister by a hair.) R.A. Dickey @NYY scares me because of the ballpark and the long ball, but I think on average this is an appropriate ranking. Tsuyoshi Wada against the Dodgers could be an interesting start as LA struggles against LHP. Vidal Nuno at Colorado...

Pirates 7, Cubs 3

The final homestand of the season started off as well as you could have hoped, as the Pirates took care of the Cubs in a game that had a “taking care of business” type feel to it. It was a strong crowd, which you’d expect despite a gloomy day / chilly night and HS football under way, but the game didn’t really generate a big time atmosphere. Everyone knew the Pirates should...

Pirates’ Offense Continues to Lead the Way

The Pirates weren’t crushing the ball in tonight’s game against the Cubs. Despite opposing starter Tsuyoshi Wada leaving his high 80s fastball over the plate several times, the Pirates didn’t bash numerous extra base hits. Yet, with a single here, a blooper there, and a few extra base hits mixed in, the Pirates put seven runs and 14 hits on the board, winning the game 7-3...

Chicago Cubs (64-76) vs. Pittsburgh Pirates (71-68)

While the Cubs have done their best to help Pittsburgh out in their quest to reach the playoffs for the second year in a row, the Pirates haven’t done much to help themselves lately. The Cubs swept the previously first place Brewers, but at the same time, the Pirates got swept by the Cardinals. So now the Cardinals are surging and leading the division and Pittsburgh is now behind...

Do not sleep on the Cubs

If the Pirates are going to somehow win the National League’s second wild card (they enter today 1 1/2 games behind the Braves and Brewers, both of whom are playing awfully lately), the easiest route to it would seem to be to beat up on the Cubs and Phillies, two teams with lousy records that the Pirates play ten times in the next ten days. There is a problem with that plan: the...

Fantasy Roundup: Scouting Tsuyoshi Wada

One reason why I watch most baseball games with sound off is because the TV analyst (usually an ex-player) uses way too many cliches. I’m about to use one of the most overused cliches in baseball, but it’s the only way I can describe Tsuyoshi Wada: He just knows how to pitch. On Sunday Wada had a no hitter after six innings despite not having overpowering stuff. His fastball...

Cubs' Wada takes no-hitter into 7th, beats former team Baltimore

  Tsuyoshi Wada was disappointed he didn't pitch better when he was in the Baltimore Orioles organization. He made an impression on his former team Sunday. The left-hander held the Orioles hitless for six innings before allowing Steve Pearce's leadoff homer in the seventh inning for Baltimore's only hit, and the Chicago Cubs won 2-1 for a three-game sweep.

WATCH: Steve Pearce crush a 7th inning bomb

With the loss of Manny Machado still ringing in the heads of the Baltimore Orioles, Steve Pearce did his best to try to keep the team from losing a series to the lowly Chicago Cubs. With the O’s trailing 2-0 and nobody on base, Pearce crunched an 88 mph, gift-wrapped Tsuyoshi Wada pitch and sent it flying out of Wrigley Field and onto Waveland Avenue. Despite the bomb, the O...

Chicago Cubs: Wada case he’s making

Tsuyoshi Wada is making a case for a permanent rotation spot. In a season filled with unpredictability, Tsuyoshi Wada has been a pleasant surprise up to this point. Coming into the season, the Chicago Cubs were being lauded for their elite position prospects in the minors. Little attention was being paid to the pitching in the minors, because it is not comparable to the position...

Every Season is NOT Sacred

I get the plan. I understand the plan. I like the plan. Tuesday night, the Chicago Cubs won a rain shortened win. Tsuyoshi Wada picked up a win after pitching five shutout innings before a 15 minute rain delay stopped the game short due to a malfunction with the tarp. That was that, the game was called, the Cubs got to raise the flag and play Steve Goodman’s classic “Go Cubs...

Giants have grounds for frustration - could protest, Bochy says

The Giants lost 2-0 Tuesday night in a game that was called after 4 1/2 innings, and they were furious with how it was handled by the Cubs. Give the win to Chicago starting pitcher Tsuyoshi Wada and the save to the Wrigley Field grounds crew, which fouled up covering the infield when rain drenched Wrigleyville as the Giants were pulled off the field before the bottom of the fifth...
