Can Claudio and Guerra get out of another Fat Albers mess?
Yes, yes they can.
5-0 into the 9th. Gonna be percentage points out of first by dinner time.
7-0 heading into bottom of 9th.
Set these A-Holes down in order & let's go have dinner.
Nice start to the weekend. Gio and Jose were dealing for about 6 innings. Then the superior bullpen took over! Good to see our pen rounding into form (other than Albers). Now Hader should be available the next 2 days.
Loved last year's team....starting to get all gushy about this one too.
Get Shaw and Perez hitting and Katie bar the door.
Also love Gamel.
Sounds like Shaw was told he is out for the entire series. All lefties scheduled for the Cubs ..... and he is hopeless right now.
Didn't think too much of the Gio signing at the time, but it looks like he's got some life left. Really pitching well so far.
7-0 Win. Nice start to the weekend !!
F the Cubs !!
Fat Albers will get one more chance, pitch well which means he gets 3 more chances to blow games. The way the Brewers send other pitchers up and down I just don't get why Albers is still around. What does he know and why does he know it?
Albers started out well in early 2018 and I think the Brewers were hoping they'd see that version of him again. They certainly didn't see that version of him yesterday. I suspect the Brewers are pretty close to giving up on him with a couple more shaky outings.
Pretty good pitching matchup between Davies and Hamels
1 -1 bottom 7 a little rain at Wrigley Field
Burns got away with throwing some meatballs but pushed the game to extra innings. Put something on the board here and bring on the Haderade.
Chubs leave the bases loaded in bottom of 11
Brewers start top of 12 with a walk to Yelich, no outs one on.
That was agonizing.
Shaw and Aguilar are useless right now. Not sure how they work out of it but maybe time for others to step in for them.
I thought for sure this would be the start that Zach Davies would "regress to the mean" so to speak. In other words, he's been so good far I was expecting him to be due for a rough outing that would happen today. Good for Zach that he pitched another very strong outing. It's too bad it was wasted.
It really is crazy how bad Shaw and Aguilar have been this year. A couple of years ago they looked like absolute steal pickups. Now, they look like the worst guys in the league at their respective positions.
