Cubs 7, Brewers 4 (4.19.17)

In Postgame by berselius21 Comments

OSS: Addison Muscle walks it off. Three up: Addison Russell capped off the Cubs comeback with a three run bomb to end the game in the bottom of the ninth. It's certainly the best kind of rally killer. Not surprisingly he was the Cubs WPA leader on the day. He also knocked in the Cubs third run in the eighth …

Cubs 9, Brewers 7 (4/18/2017 Recap)

In Uncategorized by myles58 Comments

OSS: The bats are alive! Three Four Up 1. Miguel Montero had a very nice day, with a basket homer and two other singles. Nice to see him heat up after a relatively cold start to the season. I'm not opposed to him getting 55 starts or so this year, just to help preserve Contreras. 2. Jason Heyward is still routinely …

Pirates 4, Cubs 2 (4.14.17)

In Postgame by berselius75 Comments

OSS: Cubs leave em loaded multiple times. Three up: Bryant and Rizzo had solid days at the plate, and it's not their fault that the guys behind them didn't knock them in. Rizzo did it the hard way, as he was hit twice as part of both bases loaded rallies. It was great to see Hector Rondon back after his …

How The Cubs Went 124-33 Last Year (sort of)

In Uncategorized by myles48 Comments

If you want to be technically correct (the best kind of correct), the Cubs went 103-58-1 last year in the regular season. That said, I was curious what their record was in each 7 game tranche (as that's the number of games in the World Series. The Cubs won the World Series in 7 games last year.), and since it's …

Cubs 4, Dodgers 0 (4.13.17)

In Postgame by berselius8 Comments

OSS: Cubs cruise to an easy series win against the other best team in the NL. Three up: Rizzo's bat showed a few more signs of life, hitting a solo shot in the first and chasing Ryu with an RBI single in the fifth. Oddly enough it's the first home run for either him or Bryant so far.  Addison Muscle …

Cubs 3, Dodgers 2 (4.101.7)

In Postgame by berselius164 Comments

OSS: Cubs raise the banners and pull out a late win. Three up: The Cubs are World Series champions, in case you didn't know. I love the designs on the new banners. Anthony Rizzo's first RBI of the year was a walk-off against a guy who was one of the top five relievers in baseball last year. He also led …
