So the bats were hiding in Chicago all this time. On the South Side. Who knew?

He said it best who said it last.

And most other things, to be honest. Especially a Cubs game.

Can’t beat that with a stick.

Oh wait. Can’t beat fun at the old ball yard.

“I’m mad that everybody’s mad. I’m having fun, and we’re still in first place. ... We’ve just got to have fun. We’ve just got to compete. We are who we are, but we’ve got to work. We’ve got to work for what we want — that is the championship.” Javier Báez.


The simCubs won game #110 today, with Jesus Luzardo coming in for Tyler Chatwood in the fourth and vulturing yet another win, his 18th of the season to tie him with Ryan Yarbrough for the team and league high. The 8-6 victory featured the big bats of Jason Kipnis, Kyle Schwarber, and Kris Bryant, plus an Ian Happ triple. Craig Kimbrel closed it out for his 49th save.

Alec Mills will start for Yu Darvish today, with Yarbrough scheduled for Sunday. Game time will be noon CT. All game video and related material is available commercial-free, 24/7, at the BCB Media Center.
