Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 132

New, 27 comments

A lot of bad luck, followed by a bad pitch, land Hector Rondon at the top of the Goat podium on Wednesday.

I don't know about you, but I could really go for a game that doesn't have massive swings in the chart in the late innings.

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 - Kris Bryant (.280). This could be another sighting of the rare Superhero Marmol. In hindsight, though, even if you took the WPA from that play (.048) and assigned it to Bryant, he'd still land on top of the Hero podium.
  • Hero - Anthony Rizzo (.141). Connected in a major way on his homer just to the left of the batter's eye.
  • Sidekick - Austin Jackson (.108). Gained about one-third of his points via the passed ball and the wild pitch, but still had a nice 2-for-4 day nonetheless.

THE THREE GOATS:

  • Billy Goat - Hector Rondon (-.467). If there's a silver lining, it might be this: He had gone 41 straight outings without giving up a homer.
  • Goat - Jason Hammel (-.257). You just can't give up a triple to Raisel Iglesias. Well, I guess you can, but you really shouldn't.
  • Kid - Addison Russell (-.090). A pretty rough day with three swinging strikeouts, but he did have a walk to make it a bit better.
RANKINGS THROUGH GAME 132 ("x" indicates player not on active roster):
Bryant continues his march toward second place, while Rizzo now stands one-half of a point short of the 100 mark on the Hero side.
