Writer's Note: The daily selections of the three Heroes and three Goats are based solely on the top three and bottom three WPA scores for the game. The selections are not based on my subjective opinion.

THE THREE HEROES:

  • Superhero - Kyle Schwarber (.216). Who else here thought that his homer was going to be a routine out off of the bat? I can't have been the only one.
  • Hero - Anthony Rizzo (.109). I'm running out of things to say for him.
  • Sidekick - Matt Szczur (.068). Only had one at-bat, but his double put the Cubs in a situation full of potential in the ninth.

THE THREE GOATS:

  • Billy Goat - Dan Haren (-.217). And now you know why his FIP was 4.59 with the Marlins.
  • Goat - Travis Wood (-.213). A single here, and a single there, and another single over there...
  • Kid - Addison Russell (-.156). Even though it scored a run, the groundout in the ninth sealed the final spot on the podium.
RANKINGS THROUGH GAME 106 ("x" indicates player not on active roster):
It's more of the same at the top, as Rizzo adds a couple more points to inch within a half of a point of his season best.
