Cubs 6, Rangers 0 (7.15.16)

In Commentary And Analysis by berselius89 Comments

OSS: Now that’s more like it Three up The Cubs offense hung some runs on a crappy pitcher, a hallmark of good teams and something that they were failing to do during their recent funk. This wasn’t just Bryzzo blasting their way to the lead, it was a team effort with no particular player sticking out WPA-wise. They got some …

Kris Bryant is good at sports

In Commentary And Analysis by dmick89109 Comments

A little over 3 years ago the Cubs drafted Kris Bryant with the 2nd pick of the 2013 First Year Player Draft*. He was considered either the top prospect or close enough to the top that few teams, if any, would have passed on him given the chance to take him that high. It was somewhat surprising to see the Houston …

Cubs 6, Pirates 5 (7.10.16)

In Commentary And Analysis by berselius44 Comments

OSS: The marathon mercifully ends with a win Three up: Bryzzo combined to go 7-9 with a walk today, and Bryant drove in the go-ahead run in the eighth inning. As bad as this stretch has been for the Cubs, at least these two guys have been producing. As Matt Clapp pointed out on twitter today, Bryant leads the NL …

Cubs 5, Reds 9 (6.5.16)

In Commentary And Analysis by berselius82 Comments

OSS: Four homers not enough to overcome a lackluster Lackey. Three up Addison Muscle had a big day, hitting two home runs and raising his slash line to .242/.338/.416 with a wOBA of .323, not too shabby from the shortstop position. He might not be the best choice to start for the NL in the ASG, but at least he’s …

Cubs 10, Reds 4 (7.4.16)

In Commentary And Analysis by berselius111 Comments

OSS: The best cure for a slump is to face the Reds. Three up: Jason Heyward had the biggest hit of the day, a two-run double in the first that put the Cubs up 3-0. He was finally dropped to sixth in the lineup and had two hits and a walk. The Cubs had three home runs on the day, …
