Man Escobar has been roughhhh since that HBP. Darn shame our manager didn’t feel it necessary to retaliate that day


How would that help Escobar be better now?

Russell wanted to get the Cubs out of the inning by bunting but Lynn wouldn't have it.

Ouch. At this pace, we're going to get 5+ innings of relief pitching.

Probably just too hot outside again, that’s all.

Wow, Lester is not a good career hitter... I think we're back to bad Lynn.:banghead: Where's the puking smiley?

 

Also, that's another reason not to bunt and give the Twins a free out. I mean, there's really no way to anticipate Lester hitting a HR there but still, when you swing away, good things happen.

And Lynn doesn’t cover first base. That might be enough for me.

There’s one (family friendly) word that comes to mind with this year’s team: SOFT. Top to bottom.

It baffles me why the Twins didn't call up any fresh relievers. It wasn't hard to see coming that they were going to need some today, and just in case of a bad start... hopefully Magill is ready to go another 3 innings today.

Great. Bullpen already up in the 2nd. Over/under on 10.5 runs for the Cubs today?

Innings? We barely have that many outs.
