    I thought Happ got a lot more than that but nice.

    Just filthy. I hope this is the Hendricks get all year because he's unhittable right now.

    That strike three on Bryant was three inches off the plate

    That curveball in Hendricks repertoire is going to make him such a difficult pitcher to face going forward.

    No walks for Darvish which is good because that's what got him last year in the first half but that's a ton of pitches for the first inning.

    CB is consistently awful behind the plate.

    Buckner is just garbage. That was ball three for Heyward and instead of it being 3-0 it's 2-1

    I wish they would just let us enjoy the silence of the game.

    No one has agreed with me though so I guess I'm in the minority but I really liked how KBO handled it. Just let us enjoy the weirdness while we can.

    Completely agreed. I don’t know what it is, but it sounds a lout louder/weirder at Wrigley than any of the others I’ve watched so far.

    Some of our relief pitchers are 2-3 MPH less on the FB this year... that’s not good

    Well, that weekend went as well as we could hope for with Bryant, Baez, and Rizzo going 5-35. If we can get this Happ and Schwarber this year our lineup will be stupid good when Bryant and Baez come along.

    Tied with Cardinals atop the division and Reds drop two to the Tigers.

    We can’t even get 3 games into the season before we start in on Bryant. Ffs.

    Nice series. One of those RP who lost velo found his way to the DL. The other is our closer. Still have major worries about this pen.

    This condensed season makes ever game so critical and ever series so important. Lester taking the mound against a pretty talented Reds team. Let’s keep winning series.

    Chalking up any early struggles to lingering back issues but like you said everything is magnified that much more in a shortened season.

    With the shortened season you might not see many series with teams who have tapped out. Probably looking at 60 pretty competitive games...

    Looks like we might finish the season at 2-1, aka the best record in baseball. Sounds like we're 2020 World Series Champs

    System still working it’s way past. They said rain should end around 8e. Probably 30-40 minutes later we can start.
