SpawnJetpack

W


sandrakarr

:( Nice try getting it tho.


Hope4years

One more out please - I hate the Mets


DrewDAMNIT

Ugh, DeGrom tomorrow. Whenever someone says DeGrom...take a drink.


NearlySilentObserver

Are we gonna get tea bagged tomorrow?


qhsk

Start bench cut: McKinstry, Hermosillo, Villar


DrewDAMNIT

Can we trade Wisdom for Pablo Escobar? He is a great defensive 3B.


NearlySilentObserver

Wtf was that Hermosillo at bat?


DrewDAMNIT

That was Hermosillo at bat


SpawnJetpack

Hermo wasn't too bad last season... this season tho


elgenie

Cubs scorning runners on the corners no outs was capably answered by a NOBLETIGER in the bottom of the inning.


DrewDAMNIT

Did we reaally get out of that? Go Cubs!


NearlySilentObserver

It took a whole bullpen, but we’re almost there. Lol


Hope4years

I’m stunned! In a good way!


nongzhigao

The noblest of tigers


-_butters_-

Hell yeah Hughes!


sandrakarr

yaaaay


Epfabi

Come on, Ross. Again?


VistaVick

Mark Cantha


NearlySilentObserver

That’s an absofuckinglutely atrocious strike call. . . I’ll take it


sandrakarr

yech. thereve been more a few of those outside strikes.


SpawnJetpack

fuckers waving at the pitcher


sandrakarr

i blinked between the pitching changed wtf happened?


NearlySilentObserver

He changed pitchers before they totally shit the bed, but the replacement is also seeming intent on shitting the bed. Hmm. . .


SpawnJetpack

manny really?


NearlySilentObserver

Ross changing pitchers before they totally shit the bed? I don’t believe it


DrewDAMNIT

I love Seiya even more now that I know he is team r/fuckcilantro


-_butters_-

I can't believe that's a thing lol


DrewDAMNIT

Nobody wants their food to taste like Dawn dish soap.


elgenie

If you have an unfortunate genetic mutation, yummy food tastes bad. 🤷


DrewDAMNIT

My ancestors beg to differ. As I said, cilantro shares a line of DNA with plants that are toxic to humans...so...


-_butters_-

Thankfully I don't taste my dish soap! I just looked it up, apparently that's a genetic thing like the taste of broccoli or smelling asparagus piss. TIL


DrewDAMNIT

Yes, the herb shares a line with plants that were historically toxic. Certain lines of DNA taste it as a bitter, soapy flavor, myself included.


mt77932

It doesn't taste like that for me. I like cilantro.


Hope4years

Dish soap vs delicious: it’s genetic. Had my DNA tested and results said I probably like cilantro (I do).


DrewDAMNIT

Inferior! (I kid...mostly...I really hate cilantro)


DrewDAMNIT

Nobody is perfect


SpawnJetpack

Damn, cilantro fan here... but only when im eating Mexican... never fathomed using it for anything else.


DrewDAMNIT

It's in a lot of Thai cuisine as well. Edit: Vietnamese also


elgenie

McKinstry has six hits the last two days, which is more than he had the first four months of his MLB season


SpawnJetpack

Seiya eating bougie dishes apparently lol


DrewDAMNIT

Sweet knock Suzuki.


SpawnJetpack

Ouch, shin cracker. Edit: must have slowed him down.


Hope4years

Pleasant surprise to see McKinstry hitting like this


-_butters_-

Imagine a world where the bullpen can hold on to a four run lead 🤞


qhsk

Hey guys! Came from a time machine from August 2021! Where is Frank the Tank? Got to be in MVP conversations right?


NearlySilentObserver

Frank tanked


archy319

Don't eff it up, Leiter


elgenie

Assad might be a solid funky swing man for a few years.


killerjags

McKinstry hit for the cycle between yesterday and today. Not too shabby considering how poorly he was hitting up until now.


inevitablescape

Hi old friend!


lupin43

Hey I know him


Hope4years

Great outing, rookie!


-_butters_-

Assad for MVP


iamthatguythere

Was that called strike as bad as it looks on the game day zone?


DrewDAMNIT

WTF was that play Ortega?


-_butters_-

I feel like Vogelbach plays for half the teams on our schedule this year


DrewDAMNIT

May kind of looks like what's-his-name from Goodfellas.


qhsk

Why tf is Assad so good?


NearlySilentObserver

Assad is pretty alright for now


NearlySilentObserver

No way a fckn Prevagen commercial just interrupted the game


Hope4years

Somebody FORGOT they’re supposed to wait til the end of the inning


NearlySilentObserver

I imagine someone accidentally leaning on a button then having their phone blow up with the angry voice of someone above them


Jaded_Refrigerator46

Lmao


Saltmeister51

I now long for a Taylor & Franimal version of "Don't go breaking my heart"


-_butters_-

Assad is a sweater


SpawnJetpack

Assad ain't bad


Hope4years

Way to go Assad! You still have a 4 run lead


mt77932

Oh wow when I work late the Cubs kick ass


DrewDAMNIT

Yep, that's what Wisdom does.


qhsk

McChickenstry is just the goat now?


MaveInfinite

if we sweet the mets and the braves win 3 in a row...we can knock the Mets out of 1st...I would very much love to do that. All of MLB was riding their dicks at the half.


SwAeromotion

Don't look at tomorrow's pitching matchup.


MaveInfinite

Jacob who??


SwAeromotion

Ha! Love the callout.


MaveInfinite

lol no problem, I think we gave him his first L of the season.


Interrobangersnmash

Ooh, I like this box score. Go Cubbies


lupin43

Well this has gone swimmingly so far


DrewDAMNIT

RBI Rivas! 5-0 Cubbies! Let's gooo!


Spectre211286

RBI Boop


lupin43

Mckinstega raking


DrewDAMNIT

Ortega is having a night.


lupin43

Whoa that was weird, almost like he just didn’t see it


-_butters_-

McK mashing for two games, just as we all predicted


TranceScape

"What kind of picks you bet" on the dugout mic. Hopefully discussing NFL lol


SpawnJetpack

Ok McKinstry, needed that one. 2 games good hitting in a row maybe he finally turned on.


1005thArmbar

McKinstry stans rise up, now is our moment!!!


DrewDAMNIT

McKinstry dong!


1005thArmbar

#HELLOOOOOOOOOOO NURSE!!!!


Hope4years

😂


Hope4years

McKinstry is on fire!


steveofthejungle

Me: *checks Instagram after landing in San Diego* Instagram ads: “become a padres season ticket holder now!”


stretchyman3012

Sounds like a golf crowd there.


stretchyman3012

Lovely


DrewDAMNIT

Ortega dong!


Hope4years

Ortega!


lupin43

Feels like Assad is always dancing on the razor’s edge


ThePlebGeneral99

this is like his 4th start lol


lupin43

I mean yes


Hope4years

Whew!!


nuketoober27

Why didn’t he just tag Lindor?


HaV0C

Can McKinstry just like make the play instead of trying to be cute all the time?


-_butters_-

Knob talk - drink!


DrewDAMNIT

This ump...


Hope4years

🤮


stretchyman3012

Awful


divorcedbp

Are the graphics overlay missing from everybody else’s broadcast as well?


Hope4years

No problem here


Spectre211286

how much Short stop has Morel played?


-_butters_-

Go Cubs! 🍻


defnotcaleb

i was at the loss last night… think i wore the wrong jersey. i’m sorry everyone, i’ve got a different one on today. won’t happen again


Hope4years

I have never gotten over 1969. I hate the Mets. I really hope we can win at least one of these games, but oh how I would love to win this 3 game series against the Mets, especially in September when they’re making a run for the playoffs. Go Cubs go!


poundfourpound

Good thing the Bears are back.
