Reds 1, Cubs 0 (4.2.18)

In Postgame by berselius11 Comments

TSS*: Sometimes you have to tip your cap to a great opponent with a great pitching staff. Other times, your cap falls off because you facepalm so hard. Three up At least this wasn't an extra inning game. Justin Wilson had a scoreless, two strikeout inning. The Cubs struck out Joey Votto twice, which should be something like 10% of …

Cubs 10, Marlins 6 (10 innings)

In Postgame, Uncategorized by berselius10 Comments

OSS: A win's a win. Three up: Kyle Schwarber hit a 2 billion foot (est.) home run in the second inning. The early returns on the slimmed-down War Bear's defense are meh, but his power certainly doesn't seem to be affected. Ben Zobrist has been crushing the ball in his first two starts, which is great to see after his …

Marlins 2, Cubs 1 (17 innings)

In Postgame by berselius23 Comments

OSS: The most annoying kind of loss. Three up: Despite eventually blowing the lead, the new look Cubs bullpen was pretty good in this one. The Pen pitched 10+ innings of shutout baseball, including seven innings from Eddie Butler who posted a whopping .898 WPA in this one. Kyle Hendricks looks pretty good, and was hitting 88 or so on …

Cubs 8, Marlins 4 (3.29.18)

In Postgame by berselius6 Comments

OSS: Cubs power their way past some sloppy play. Three up: Ian Happ started this game off with a bang, sending the first pitch of the 2018 season into the RF seats. Rizzo and Schwarber followed him later in the game, and I'm a little surprised in retrospect that the Cubs had *only* three homers in this one. The 2017 …
