NLCS Game One: Dodgers 5, Cubs 2

In Playoffs, Postgame by berselius39 Comments

OSS: Well, at least it's a slightly longer series. Three up: Albert Almora was the only Cubs player with a positive WPA on the day, thanks to a two run homer off of Kershaw in the fourth inning to give the Cubs a lead. They didn't end up with much to show for it, but Bryzzo were squaring up Kershaw …

NLDS Game 5: Cubs 9, Nationals 8

In Playoffs, Postgame by berselius107 Comments

OSS: That was the craziest Cubs’ winner-take-all clincher I have seen since the last time they had a winner-take-all clincher.* Three up: On a night of shaky pitching performances all around, Wade Davis somehow put together a seven out save to send the Cubs to the NLCS. He didn't have his best stuff, but he brought it for the final …

NLDS Game 3: Cubs 2, Nationals 1

In Playoffs, Postgame by berselius58 Comments

OSS: Cubs win despite getting no hit for most of the game again. Three+ up: Anthony Rizzo had the biggest hit of the game, a bloop single to left that managed to find the hole between three defenders to drive in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning. It more than made up for the double play he hit into …

NLDS Game Two: Nationals 6, Cubs 3

In Postgame by berselius70 Comments

OSS: That fucking eighth inning. Three up: Just like game one, Bryzzo each struck out in their first PAs then turned it on later in the game. They led off the fourth with a double by Bryant and a homer to right by Rizzo, which gave the Cubs a 3-1 lead that should have held up the rest of the …
