So strange that spring training is done in AZ...just such a different environment than Chicago.


MostMirror

This season must have been odd for Joe Girardi. He managed the Phillies for two months, and is now a broadcaster with the Cubs.


SpawnJetpack

Im here for it, he ain't half bad at the job.


Ya_Junko

Thompson not apart of the rotation anymore?


SpawnJetpack

Ok Keagan, casually just closing the game


Hope4years

Keegan! One more K please!


SpawnJetpack

Good swings just couldn't find it


Kit_Shriek

Did Patrick just swear on television


SpawnJetpack

Why what happen?


Hope4years

Struck out


mediaddiction

Serious recommendation/request to be part of the information at the top of all game threads- And I ask specifically because it can be harder to find. I wish they would list the announcers (for both feeds if applicable)


elgenie

Keeganโ€™s stuff plays up so much out of the pen


Hope4years

Way to go Keegan!


steveofthejungle

I want to murder that Battleground America podcast ad

i got to Portland 24 hours ago and placed 9 sports bets before this game started. every single one of them failed, so I figured I was cursed . I decided to keep up the streak and bet $20 on the Marlins 10 minutes before game time. A small price to pay for a Cubs win


elgenie

Three runs on zero hit, just like they drew it up


RiceMasta5000

That's Cub?


steveofthejungle

Fapp fapp fapp fapp


SpawnJetpack

C'mon Gomes Edit: darn


jimmykane366

Still no legit hits in this inning lmao


SpawnJetpack

Nice sac Happ!


Hope4years

Happ did exactly what he needed to do!


hansomejake

Wow, crazy body control!


-_butters_-

We startin over!


mt77932

It's a brand new game!


SpawnJetpack

Nice moves Morel! Even if he caught that I don't think he had him.


Spectre211286

morel touched home with just his fingertips


Hope4years

You donโ€™t see that every day


sandrakarr

:D


elgenie

Quiroz is only good when trying to bunt for an out, apparently


flossholder2

thanks Okert!


sandrakarr

\*cackles*


Hope4years

Quiroz!!


SpawnJetpack

Good bunt!

1005thArmbar

HELLOOOOOOOO NURSE


1005thArmbar

sorry i'm late on the home run celebration, I'm currently scrolling through 250 Portland restaurants on DoorDash trying to decide on dinner


Hope4years

Iโ€™m late due to being on multiple phone calls but I did see the home run and just now upvoted your wonderfully weird HR celebration


mt77932

A reuben and a cup of split pea soup


hansomejake

Pizza, the answers alway pizza


flossholder2

see flair


hansomejake

That dinger looked like the one McGuire broke the record with


-_butters_-

I think Girardi is the only third man in the booth that actually works


Spectre211286

it kinda works with JD because now you have the Pitcher-Catcher perspective. a lot of the time the third man is another Pitcher that doesnt add anything


-_butters_-

Dempster tonight, but yeah the pitcher - catcher combo plays well in the booth


elgenie

With the current Cubs lineup, a 3-0 deficit might as well be 15-0.


MaveInfinite

COMEBACK SEASON!!


unexpectedhalfrican

My Internet just went out so I guess I'm not meant to watch this game ๐Ÿ™ƒ but then again, seeing what just happened in the box score, maybe I don't want to.


elgenie

Looks like the light bulb turned on for Canario in AAA. After *three* homers yesterday, he had two hits and two walks in five PAs today and suddenly has an .895 OPS as an ICub. He had started with a hilariously horrible .050 / .259 / .050, 10 wRC+ line in his first eight games at that level.


Spectre211286

South bend Cubs just took a 3-0 lead with a HR from Owen Cassie


unexpectedhalfrican

Gladiator Nico makes me feel a certain type of way... Edit: I started the game late so I'm catching up lol not still reminiscing over that pic two innings later ๐Ÿ˜‚


unexpectedhalfrican

Something about Pajama Higgins' eyes are unsettling to me. Maybe too close together? Idk. Great player, just an unsettling gaze.


-_butters_-

JJ Bleday is just a silly name


steveofthejungle

Pat just did a Sean Connery bit on the radio and you guys are missing out hah


curgiiiiii

Shushpenders


Sunwestcome

I love watching Stroman


curgiiiiii

I love Ron just going on about turf lol


steveofthejungle

Hell yeah radio transition music playing the original Itโ€™s My Life by Talk Talk! (Even though I love the No Doubt cover as well)


unexpectedhalfrican

I had no idea the No Doubt version was a cover ๐Ÿ˜ฎ my life is a lie


steveofthejungle

Glad that this is how you found out


-_butters_-

In only one game Wisdom making a case for gold glove in right field


ThatsCubbie

P WIZZY WTF DUDE! That was amazing.


Spectre211286

is wisdom a gold glove right fielder and noone told us?


SpawnJetpack

phew right on the tip of the glove


1005thArmbar

just won $50 from scratch off lottery tickets from the great state of washington also God bless best western for not restricting the HDMI ports on their TVs, so I can plug in the Apple TV and watch the game while i'm in portland


unexpectedhalfrican

Some people have all the luck ๐Ÿ™„


flossholder2

great pitch from Stroman there for the K


steveofthejungle

Computer still being dumb and taking forever to update. Radio it is


Spectre211286

nice catch wisdom


bodie221

Interesting rendition of the anthem...


-_butters_-

Let's win the series -- go Cubs! ๐Ÿป
