Today's game potential SWEEP. Let's get it down tonight guys!


bearssuperfan

Cubs AAA squad with no starter beats a team 10 games over .500


Aura_Masta420

LEITER JR. WITH A STELLAR NIGHT! GO CUBS GO


Shicawgoh

How we feeling dames and dudes? 4 straight wins, 3 straight series'! Could this team catch fire for a run?...👀


bearssuperfan

This run needs to last into august and survive the trade deadline. Not totally out of the question that the Cubs become buyers


Televisions_Frank

To at least stand pat we'd need to go this month with only 4 losses imo and even then the rest of this month is almost entirely against NL teams looking for at least a WC spot. So every loss to one of them hurts you. It's highly unlikely we go on a tear, but who knows. If we get some starters back and don't need to rely on Mills/Killian/Swarmer eating innings anything's possible I guess.


Shicawgoh

I picked the wrong day to stop smoking


butters_fruit_bowl

It's always the right day to quit smoking, source: few years here


killerjags

I picked the wrong day to stop sniffing glue


Aura_Masta420

Lmao.


sandrakarr

hey people in Pink Hat Guy's seat....read the room! get on your feet doshgarnit!


Televisions_Frank

Come on Robbie's Son.


Penguinkeith

Robinson mowing em down like weeds


mhoner

What the hell is going on! Cubbies playing like they are going to try for the post season.


lupin43

Well that one may have been low, whoops 😂


okay_throwaway_today

Last 4 pitches have been nasty


SpawnJetpack

Ooooo, hell of a pitch. Looked too good to call a ball.


jso__

I think it literally clipped the zone by a millimeter from the look of gameday


butters_fruit_bowl

*And here's to you, Mr. Robertson...*


Go4Lo

PA-PA-PA-**POW!**


SpawnJetpack

Just let Robertson throw them in then.


rotallytad

Robertson looking SPRY


mrfancyNOpants

Fox Box lol


lupin43

Well devers better start believing


sandrakarr

zone's been wide all night but that one was in there/


SpawnJetpack

Same spot he got ball called too. This ump all over the place tonight.


SwAeromotion

Strike 4 to Devers and he's whining.


DrewDAMNIT

ROBERTSON!


jso__

Devers is perplexed a strike was called a strike


rotallytad

Devers has not had a good game js


SpawnJetpack

Strike…


1nf1niteCS

I hate the shift


DrewDAMNIT

Fuck the shift. It worked for us for a minute, but it's bad for the game. Time to end it.


okay_throwaway_today

Getting rid of it would help the current cubs offense a lot lol


DrewDAMNIT

I hate how it ruined IF position talent. Just shove anyone there and cross your fingers, is boring. Infield defense is a fucking skill. It's my favorite part of the game.


Go4Lo

The fuck. Devers’ stance makes him look like a goddamn anime character in a fighting game selection screen.


DrewDAMNIT

That's right dude. Go back to 2B!


Televisions_Frank

Dammit.


rotallytad

Robertson just throw strikes. That’s it. That’s all


elgenie

Imagine getting small balled to death by the 2022 Cubs


ruppy99

Houck looks like the robot devil from Futurama


SwAeromotion

C'mon Robertson. Clamp down this save and raise your trade value all in one!!


Gucci9001

Someone call the Crimson Chin, because Nico is the Bronze Kneecap.


KnickedUp

Nico pls no 6 week breaks


rotallytad

Get yo ass in there nico 👋👋👋🤷🏻‍♂️


Picklewithmysandwich

Rub some dirt in it. You'll be fine


Ok_Illustrator_3985

Lmaooo


sandrakarr

....we don't need knees anyway, amirite? ^^ow.ow.ow.ow.ow.ow


DrewDAMNIT

Nooooooo! Horerner! Get up you son of a bitch, because Micky loves ya!


jso__

istg if hoerner is hurt


okay_throwaway_today

For real


SpawnJetpack

Youch


brianeharmonjr

Don’t be hurt, Nico


SpawnJetpack

Good jump Wiz!


Televisions_Frank

lmao the Cubs are fucking hard with Houck right now.


MaveInfinite

Has anyone mentioned how he looks like a young Kerry Wood.


Go4Lo

YOU GET A STOLEN BASE AND YOU GET A STOLEN BASE


Ok_Illustrator_3985

Give Ross credit for the managing this inning


coydog33

What!?! No! Only shitting on Rossy allowed! /s


SwAeromotion

I jizzy for PWizzy!!!!


DrewDAMNIT

I love that we kick ass against big dogs. Cubbies are the best underdogs, most of the time.


MaveInfinite

I would’ve loved if we couldve stolen G1 v Yankees this year. We had that game.


mighty__orbot

Boston has really been their own worst enemy this series.


SpawnJetpack

They got soft thinking easy series against cubs…


okay_throwaway_today

Cubs out here looking like a real baseball team


jso__

Nah, more like the Red Sox playing terribly. We were just gifted two stolen bases on bad throws and a run on a passed ball


MaveInfinite

That’s baseball. If baseball followed logic, then Yankees win a WS every year instead of getting bounced early.


R1150gsguy

Don’t sell us short putting the ball in play , taking advantage of opportunities Getting clutch hits , are all good signs


okay_throwaway_today

Hey I didn’t say we *are* a real baseball team


jso__

This is a completely hilarious defensive game for the red Sox


butters_fruit_bowl

VelazQWEz with the insurance run!


sandrakarr

ty patrick


lupin43

Insurance!


rotallytad

TANNER


SpawnJetpack

Hell ya Wiz!


brianeharmonjr

P RIBby


Televisions_Frank

Fuck yeah Wisdom.


Go4Lo

Houck looks like the kind of guy who would drive his F150 shirtless to the corner store for some Skoal.


Ok_Illustrator_3985

rip Happ's strikeout rate


sandrakarr

first pitch steal? cmon man...you just got lucky.


butters_fruit_bowl

Don't Bogart my steals yo


okay_throwaway_today

Are we sure this isn’t the Red Sox org’s AA infield


rotallytad

Bosox infield is sus


okay_throwaway_today

Contreras just basically doubled the Cubs combined exit velo today


SpawnJetpack

Ortega… that was just bad.


rotallytad

Who names their kid tanner


Go4Lo

Dickheads.


rotallytad

Tru


Go4Lo

Also [these people.](https://img.buzzfeed.com/buzzfeed-static/static/2017-10/9/19/asset/buzzfeed-prod-fastlane-02/sub-buzz-9235-1507592661-12.jpg?downsize=700%3A%2A&output-quality=auto&output-format=auto)


okay_throwaway_today

I hope Houck “did his own research” on Cubs batters


jso__

F in the chat to Morel's home run streak


KnickedUp

Love in the club


BillBaloney

Leiter and Givens stepped up big tonight. Hope Robertson has 4 outs in him.


okay_throwaway_today

Helps getting an out in one pitch


subliteratemoron

They’re having a mound visit to talk about how JBJ sucks ass.


rotallytad

Cubs aren’t fucking around. Great d and bullpen fuk em


SpawnJetpack

Anyone else not care about speeding up the game? I like that it’s a multiple hour thing…


Ok_Illustrator_3985

Average game length been 3 hours for a bit and climbing.


DrewDAMNIT

Yeah, I hate fast games. I want a 3 hour+ game for eternity.


Sunwestcome

The slower pace of baseball is one of its best aspects


DrewDAMNIT

"Pass time" means a thing.


rotallytad

Lassgo wick?


SpawnJetpack

Fuck blackouts


rotallytad

I like this Rivas ab


inhale-my-dong

Beer snakes and some shoeys, what could be better on a summer evening


butters_fruit_bowl

Probably getting ur dong inhaled, just sayin


DrewDAMNIT

I wish I was there.


w3_ar3_farm3rs

I haven't been watching. Leiter really went 5.1 on 57 pitches? Stepped up big


elgenie

If he’d been pulled when he should’ve been, it’d have been a scoreless 4.2 IP on under 50 pitches while facing only one batter over the minimum


okay_throwaway_today

It was wild to watch lol


Televisions_Frank

Dropped his ERA about 0.7 with it.


hascogrande

So that dude is clearly hammered lol


BillBaloney

Great vibe at the ballpark tonight. Nice weather, lots of friendly Red Sox fans.


The_Drunk_Kraken

I didn’t know Voldemort was in the new Thor movie.


Go4Lo

That’s Voldemort? Holy shit, I thought it was Kellyanne Conway.


rotallytad

It’s p obvious that when Gomes is catching the cubs staff is way better


w3_ar3_farm3rs

ERA by catcher Hendricks: 5.96/2.53 (Contreras/Gomes) Stroman 6.3/4.22 Steele: 5.19/1.86 Thompson 4.67/1.97 That's crazy


Televisions_Frank

Definitely less walks, but also robo umps are coming so Contreras' issues with framing won't matter soon.


rotallytad

Givens starting find it?


okay_throwaway_today

Honestly I think he’s just had one or two really bad games but otherwise has been very solid all year


mighty__orbot

Still hate to hear Yu Darvish is having a bad time.


no_moving_parts

Yeah. Dude really made an impression in his relatively short time here.


DrewDAMNIT

Haven't heard that. That makes me sad.


okay_throwaway_today

He’s having a decent year overall but got shelled pretty bad today by the Dodgers


DrewDAMNIT

Fuck the Dodgers.


Gucci9001

Givens them no quarter.


rotallytad

This is just a show for when we get bogarts


The_Drunk_Kraken

Finally able to sit down. Got some brats and some sharkleberry fin kool aid. Life’s good.


Shicawgoh

Bill Burr likes to travel to different stadiums, can we get him and Jeff Garlin at the same time tomorrow night?


rotallytad

No


elgenie

He reacted like that because Nico’s ball is at least a double off the Monster in Fenway, if not over it.


A_Lacuna

[Another double for Seiya in Iowa.](https://twitter.com/ballskwok/status/1543401080071102465)


Go4Lo

Fabian plays the field when he’s not on the field, if you know what I mean.


Penguinkeith

Bruh these balls are fucking dead tonight


chazbo26

Anyone else listening to the radio? This shit is golden. Acapulco taco pie


DrewDAMNIT

You have to 'splain that.


Picklewithmysandwich

50 years from now our grandchildren are going to laugh that we used to have actual people calling balls & strikes


Penguinkeith

Worst call of the night


A_Lacuna

Damn, that looked good.


SpawnJetpack

Bulllshit that wasn’t even close


jso__

Jfc, how is that strike 3


rotallytad

Unnecessary call by the ump


sandrakarr

liiiitle outside. just a little.


flossholder2

Blind ass ump


brianeharmonjr

S/O Obvious Joe for getting a national broadcast mention!


elgenie

This is more smallball than a steroid-era MLB locker room


Penguinkeith

Bring back our boy


sandrakarr

theyre talking about Fabian but thats not Fabian wtf


sosomojo

fabian has weekends off. it's like that.


RacinGracey

Fabian just made national TV and I am sitting in my boxers with a foot blister.


DrewDAMNIT

Fabian let himself go.


lupin43

WHERE. IS. FABIAN.


jso__

Omg I saw the ballboy miss a play and I was wondering if it was Fabian and the broadcasters said that immediately


rotallytad

Where’s Gavin(Fabian)?


butters_fruit_bowl

Cubs are playing what I like to call *soft*ball tonight haha


elgenie

Villar got his unconditional release and then immediately landed on his feet as the Red Sox’ infield defense coach


jso__

I keep laughing but I also feel shitty because we should be winning at least 5-0 now. Also how was that not scored an error


sandrakarr

... ... LMAO


DrewDAMNIT

Boston can't take our smoll balls!


rotallytad

Josh winkowski honestly sounds like a Chevy dealership in western springs


rotallytad

The givens experience


Dack-Ramb0

Wtf did we just witness from Leiter? we can meme that as much as we want, but that was impressive as hell.


DrewDAMNIT

He was clutch! It was great to see.


Penguinkeith

Seriously to be put in that situation is tough and he rose to the challenge


Penguinkeith

Sucks but I'd take that any day


elgenie

The pull is two-three batters too late and the Cubs are very lucky to still be ahead.


Penguinkeith

If you don't like that you don't like Ross' managerial style


elgenie

I don’t and I don’t.


BillBaloney

I didn’t like leaving him so long, but Leiter did a hell of a job under the circumstances.


DrewDAMNIT

Had to make due with the chaos factor.


A_Lacuna

I can't believe Ross got away with letting him face Devers again, nice work from the infield.


DrewDAMNIT

Fuck yes! That was a sexy DP!
