    Here’s how long extra inning games can be cured and made more exciting:

    All men LOB beginning in the 9th stay on base. If their turn at bat comes around while still on they forfeit the base

    A 12 inning game WILL BE A RARITY

    Schildt needs to let Wacha stay in for as long as possible and not pull him in the 6 th because he gives up a lead off hit or not pinch hit for him in the 4th because hes trying to get a couple extra runs. Bottom line if Wacha is being effective, keep him in there esp if we have the lead. Chances are this will be Wachas last start of 2019, because I don’t foresee him being in the starting rotation for the playoffs so the next time he will pitch will probably be Thursday or Friday against the braves out of the pen.

    If we win today and the Crew lose tonight and tomorrow then the division is over and the Cubs will have nothing to spoil. Even if that doesn’t happen I still like our chances. Great American Ballpark and Coors Field can be treacherous. I just don’t see them running the table.

    Man, does this tune sound familiar. Man on 2nd with none out and then back to back Ks. I’m headed out of service to hike. Hopefully someone lays a bunt down sometime.

    First inning is a continuation of last night’s offense. JMart swinging like a maniac and Ravelo swinging at nothing. They get the same result. I think there’s a happy medium somewhere.

    This lineup almost is like the cards are conceding this game as a loss

    Besides having a Kraken hangover I’ve got a baseball hangover from that horrid mess this morning

    That and the You Tube thing is too much for me

    After a 19 inning affair, really needed Wacha to be sharp, doesn’t appear he is.

    Not sure Wacha will make it out of the first inning.

    How does a guy who throws only 50% strikes stay in the Bigs as long as Wacha has? I don’t expect every pitch to be a strike as that won’t happen, but he can’t get past 5 innings due to pitch count every outing.

    So much for Wacha helping out the pen. Do we have a long man available?

    Technically, last night they did it in 13 but the bullpen went kaboom a second time so they played 19.

    Honestly, I think Wacha would be good old school middle inning man. Come in and eat 1-4 inning depending what is needed. That role in today’s game is just gone.

    But the point you were making was not lost on me. 19 innings is way to many to get just 2 runs.

    Wacha might be good in that role but since he started today’s game and has exited he is not available. I guess I am asking who do we have available today to eat some innings? I am assuming Myers isn’t going the final 7 1/3.
