Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 103

New, comments

The best laid plans don't always come to fruition, with Aroldis Chapman's blown save proving the point as he takes his first trip to the Goats in Saturday's 4-1 loss.

I totally want one of those for my wall.

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 Gonzalez Mishap of Game 103: With two out and runners on the corners in the top of the eighth, Leonys Martin drives a double into the gap in left-center to give the Mariners a 2-1 lead. WPA impact: -.496.

THE THREE HEROES:

  • Superhero / Hero #1 (tie) - Jake Arrieta (.214). He was a runaway candidate for the Superhero before the two walks in the eighth...
  • Superhero / Hero #2 (tie) - Hector Rondon (.214). ...with Rondon earning the tie by keeping the Cubs ahead and passing the game along to the next guy.
  • Sidekick - Jason Heyward (.080). If you take away the wild pitch from Edwin Diaz, Heyward's single in the eighth still would have been enough for the final spot. No fruit basket for you, Edwin.

THE THREE GOATS:

  • Billy Goat - Aroldis Chapman (-.600). It's the first time since August 16, 2013 that he's posted a WPA of worse than -.590.
  • Goat - Willson Contreras (-.133). Hit a ringing liner in the eighth... unfortunately right to Kyle Seager.
  • Kid - Addison Russell (-.108). Still searching for his first hit in the series.

RANKINGS THROUGH GAME 103: Arrieta closes the gap in the top three while Heyward wriggles his way back out of the minus-30 crew.
