And now the weather delay. Not great timing for Wacha but pretty ok for Lester.
Wacha gets out of it with only the one run. Hopefully they can get to Lester.
Not a great start to the game.
Zero issue with the comment. I hope the Cubs fans go home miserable every game night the rest of history.
Bader seems to play with a lot of intensity. It’s sort of Tommy Pham-like, perhaps without the gigantic chip on his shoulder. Nonetheless, he’s at least an average player overall it seems and perhaps a little more. It’s nice to have that kind of depth available when someone goes down.
Trading Kelly talk is hardly nonsense. There’s another guy who may be just as good right behind him. I didn’t say they should trade him right now, but down the road it makes sense to explore it.
Now trading Fowler…that’s nonsense talk. He would have to approve it and he has very little to no value to an opposing team. To think that it will happen is pure fantasy stuff.
Kelly hasn’t been good for about a year but here’s his chance to make an impression. Play good D and hit a little and he becomes a trade chip later.
These are the kind of games that can make the difference between a playoff team and one sitting at home for October. Nice to get the victory. Hope they can hit Lester tomorrow night.
What did it look like? Arm?
Pham exited again? I’m not able to watch…what happened??
That’s pretty neat, BW. And congrats to Albert!! Would have been cool if he had still been a Cardinals but I understand why he’s not and the team is better off for it.
Wasn’t easy at all but they managed to hang on for the 3-2 win. Third straight W by the same score.
Cubs are crushing Norris. Not one of the balls in play have been of the soft hit variety. Tying run now on first, one out.
Two singles and the tying run comes to the plate …
Quick half of the eighth…in comes Norris to finish it off.
Gregerson navigated Contreras and Schwarber to maintain the shutout. Good work there.
Now can we just get an insurance run or two this inning??
Really didn’t look good for Leone on all those replays. Hopefully not terribly serious but that’s the type of thing that usually means elbow surgery.
Gregerson isn’t the guy you’d want normally but probably only in for one batter.
Leone now injured during his warmup. Ouch. Now bringing someone else in.
Leone in…his homeritis is due to regress at some point.
Another chance for the bullpen to ruin a guy’s ERA. Why can’t it just be a nice boring finish to the game? Heh
Apparently Mikolas is getting a shot to go back out for the 8th. Seems risky but somehow less so than trusting Gregerson or Lyons.
Great effort tonight from Mikolas. Not sure if that’s it for him but if it is, that’s exactly what we needed. Going to be up to the bullpen to hold it whenever they’re called upon.
Mikolas with the nice K and gets Bryant to ground out to get by unscathed. That was big.
As much as the Cards have basically controlled this game… it’s one slap single from a one run game and a bomb away from tied.
