Good to see Bryant get a hold of one.
Our fans are making some great catches these first two games. Love to see it. Almost forgot how much I enjoy fan watching between pitches.
Heyward crushed that!
Best outing Kimbrel has ever had for us.
Besides that opener that series went about as well as we could've asked. Davies and Arrieta both with very solid starts, Kimbrel looked excellent in both outings, Bryant, Rizzo, Baez, and Heyward hit well. Joc doing nothing was the biggest disappointment. I'm still not expecting to be a playoff team until we get this consistent production from that core, but we might be able to deal some guys at the deadline to contenders to further build up the farm system.
I think we will stay in contention long enough for people to be pissed when we eventually sell
I genuinely don’t think they sell if they are in the hunt. They’re not going to get a good package for any of the expiring contracts.
beating the shit out of the Brewers and watching Yelich suck will never get old
4th inning was fun.
I get Kimbrel can't go again but Mills is a strange choice to close instead. He's so vulnerable to HRs I'm surprised they didn't try Tepera there.
Odd choice but it worked.
I’ve revised my projection and now 100 wins seems like the floor
On pace for 120 so I’d say that seems fair.
Heyward being a great teammate again
Heyward was worth every penny he got. I don't think anyone would say that at the time of his deal.
Honestly it’s impressive how pathetic they’ve been. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a team collectively start a season hitting this poorly. Ross has to start getting some heat if this continues because while we haven’t been built to compete with Dodgers and Yankees, we still have enough talent that this offensive output isn’t acceptable. Also love how we’ve prided ourselves for years on building the farm system up with hitters and it’s the pitching that’s carrying the team so far.

You can buy only 4 tickets
He earned every penny he’ll ever make from the Cubs during the Cleveland rain delay
I know it's been discussed many times before but it's still almost beyond belief how bad they've fucked up Marquee/the broadcast in general.
Which is fine because I'm not spending another $ to (legally) watch this team until all of the non-Laura Ricketts are dead.
My Marquee feed cut out midgame. I guess DirecTV finally realized I don't pay for that channel
Free for the week... must've ended today
Well, it was good while it lasted. Back to streams for me.
Rossy needs to show some fucking fire for once. Just got hosed out of a run and he’s out there with his hands in his pockets being friendly. Makes me miss Maddon. This team is so damn flat and sloppy.
There ya go Rossy. Good to know he’s reading the thread. Got tossed but barely even stepped out of the dugout. Smh.
edit: Guess it wasn’t him who got tossed. I’m back out on him. No fire.
This team is puke puke
I have a hard time caring about this team anymore. They are so frustrating to watch and every decision ownership seems to make is just to line their pockets and not put a competitive team on the field.
Remember when we had a tinge of optimism after the first game? That was fun.
This is at least encouraging that the offense should pick up at some point.
It's truly amazing that all this young talent peaked for the world title and just about every single one of the players on this roster has regressed since.
I'm not upset at all how we are positioned going into this off-season. Get ready for a massive roster overhaul.
