Game 2, Cubs-Dodgers.


As expected, we have ourselves a ballgame.

    We just have to hang in there and hit their bullpen. It can be done, right guys?

    GREAT play by Baez!!

  3. genrebuster Says:

    Walks DON’T clog the bases…remember?

  4. genrebuster Says:

    Dammit, throw some fucking strikes…

  5. genrebuster Says:

    That, my friends was a well-pitched game. Some questionable calls (balls and strikes) but regardless, Cubs bats MUST wake up.

    Maddon’s stubborness in not moving Russell down and Baez up, and sitting Hayward and starting Soler is hurting the team. He better wake up!

  7. genrebuster Says:

    Rizzo better wake up, too. It’s time to deliver when it matters…he’s a team leader, right? I think if the next game is like the last 3 – Cubs scoring late or not all – he’ll make a change.

    I didn’t expect this series to be a sweep.

    Genre: If Arrieta fizzles, like he has the past month and a half, then Maddon will have to go with Lester in game 4. They’ve got to get that game because you know Kershaw will start game 5.

    I’ve been reading some comments on other blogs and the general feeling is Maddon must make changes in the lineup. He cannot keep trotting out Heyward out there against left-handers, and Russell cannot stay in the 5 hole. Maddon’s stubbornness is starting to anger me.

    Finally, that Kershaw performance was lights out, like Josh Beckett in 2003, and like Schilling and Johnson in 2001. When you have a pitcher like that it gives you a huge advantage against a team that struggles to get any offense going. All the Dodgers need is one good performance from one of their other pitchers, and with Kershaw looming in the future, that’s all they’ll need.

    I will stay with my prediction of Cubs in six, but it is on really shaky ground after that Kershaw game. He made the Cubs look like Little Leaguers.
