Cubs set World Series Roster

In News And Rumors by dmick8925 Comments

The Cubs have set their World Series roster and Kyle Schwarber is on it. Whether or not that’s a good idea, it’s fantastic news for Schwarber and the Cubs future. I personally don’t mind it. Rob Z. was left off the roster and that’s a good trade off in my opinion. Schwarber won’t get enough plate appearances to know whether …

Holy shit. It’s here. Let’s get straight to it. Catcher This is the first area where the advantage clearly rests with the Cubs. Yan Gomes has been a good player up until 2016, but in 2016 he was Heyward-esque. He was replaced by Roberto Perez, who also had a nice 2015 and an abysmal 2016. The Cubs have a Cerberus …

There were just two baserunners in the first seven innings, a leadoff single on the first pitch of the game that got wiped out by a slick double play turned by Baez, and an error by Baez was wiped away …

In Commentary And Analysis by berselius82 Comments

OSS: Three+ up: Addison Russell provided the biggest hit of the game, a no-doubter two run shot in the sixth inning to put the Cubs up 3-1, driving in who else but Javier Baez.

Russell took Julio Urias deep in the fourth for a two run shot, and Rizzo hit a solo shot in the fifth. Both were making good …
