NLCS Game 2: Dodgers 4, Cubs 1

In Playoffs, Postgame by berselius64 Comments

OSS: Showalter'd. Three up: Addison Russell struck the only major Cubs blow in this one with a line drive homer to left that briefly gave the Cubs the lead. The bullpen proper performed much better in this one, especially Carl Edwards Jr. Foolish bottom of the ninth decisions aside, Edwards, Strop, and Duensing combined for four innings, allowing just one …

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 …
