That was close


Hope4years

I have a headache. Please let’s get an out. Edit: Thank you Michael Hermosillo!


-_butters_-

My kid was standing out here when their power went out. He knows all the swear words but I still don't really swear around him just because. I did however tell him we call it Shittsburgh for reasons haha


elgenie

Leiter quietly [moved up to third](https://www.fangraphs.com/leaders.aspx?pos=all&stats=rel&lg=all&qual=0&type=8&season=2022&month=33&season1=2022&ind=0&team=17&rost=0&age=0&filter=&players=0) in Cubs reliever fWAR on the season His four starts were really bad, though.


inevitablescape

Mervis and Canario both with 35 homers on the year is crazy


Spectre211286

I really want to see Mervis make the opening day roster next year


Hope4years

Like that kind of good news


GOTuIN_aSTRANGLEHOLD

Is Ross suffering from the result of foul balls off his mask?


steveofthejungle

LEITER UP!


Ya_Junko

f u strikes


lupin43

Phew


mt77932

Minor heart attack there


AutisticHistoryLover

Hopefully, just rolled it


Hope4years

Oh no! Edit: Willson thought his ankle was OK when he first rolled it. I hope Hughes isn’t really injured


elgenie

Willson was visibly limping and having trouble getting low to apply tags. He was clearly not OK and having him try to tough it out was dumb by both him and the Cubs.


Spectre211286

Willson still on the IL


-_butters_-

Nice quality start by Wesneski!


KnickedUp

All star next year


Spectre211286

QS


LegacyLemur

I dont think Ive ever heard Boog yell that loud


AutisticHistoryLover

Wesneski's stuff is just unfair


Hope4years

Well that’s what you get for the stupid flashing lights


AutisticHistoryLover

Come on, Pittsburgh, get your nonsense together


HaV0C

Pay your electrical bill


lupin43

Pretty clear he was taxed, don’t like him being trotted out for the seventh Edit: whelp


steveofthejungle

NEWMAN!

Any video of the immaculate inning yet?

Complete list of known Immaculate Innings by Cubs pitcher: *Hayden Wesneski, today *LaTroy Hawkins, Sept. 11, 2004 *Lynn McGlothen, Aug. 25, 1979 *Bruce Sutter, Sept. 8, 1977 *Milt Pappas, Sept. 24, 1971 [Team records on it scarce from 1889-1914;info via team historian Ed Hartig ](https://twitter.com/M_Montemurro/status/1573112131049951236)


elgenie

You’d need pitch by pitch data to confirm it, or a newspaper account. But, given strikeout rates in the deadball era, and the ignominy associated with striking out, you can probably assume there weren’t any incidents before 1914.


Spectre211286

its interesting that 4 of the 5 occurred in september and the only one that wasnt is late August.


elgenie

The sixth was just a wee bit harder for Wesneski than that fifth I’d pull him having ended his outing on a high note with swinging K with the tying run in scoring position.


TheDarkLord329

And of course they didn’t.


elgenie

Ross is not good at pulling starters (among many other things)


Hope4years

He looked a little tired; might be a good time to pull him.


lupin43

That’s a gg for Wesneski, good quality start


unapartita

Let’s fucking go Wesneski


steveofthejungle

The fuck just happened?


qhsk

I’m starting the Hayden Wesneski 2023 Cy Young campaign


themanofax

First Cubs immaculate inning since latroy Hawkins in 04 LMAO


Hope4years

You never know what you’re going to see in any given baseball game - maybe even history being made


Hope4years

Did anyone else see a grayish screen with AirPlay at the top? “Network Configuration AtlantisGuest, Choose this Apple TV Clark Conference Room” (I don’t have an Apple TV so I’m wondering if Marquee showed that by mistake? I can rewind on Xfinity and see that screen. Weird.


her_butt_

I saw it as well. I'm watching Marquee in the FuboTV app on my Roku.


HaV0C

Happened to me too


Hope4years

Thanks. Glad to know it’s not just me


mt77932

Wesneski gives me great hope for the future


elgenie

Whooooo! Immaculate inning! (wonder when the last one was for the Cubs)


inevitablescape

Wesneski is insane. He's just a rookie but he's looking like a top of the rotation arm


sandrakarr

fuckyeah fellow Pole?


steveofthejungle

IMMACULATE INNING BABY!!


HaV0C

This dude is unreal


lupin43

IMMACULATE


-_butters_-

Wesneski with the immaculate inning!


AutisticHistoryLover

Wesneski is special


ThePlebGeneral99

I think we found something in this Wesneski kid


rotallytad

Brah, the polish power arm is killing it.


Spectre211286

Wesneski is the superior Ski


rotallytad

Yo what up it’s Jamie fox!!!!!!!!!


lupin43

Possibly one of the ugliest hit and run attempts you’ll ever see lol


-_butters_-

The "you look like Tony Hawk" treatment


steveofthejungle

Joey Votto is my goddam hero. And has an amazing beard to boot


lupin43

The laz Diaz strike zone rears its head again


ThePlebGeneral99

im so fucking sick of watching players get called out on shit pitches like that. Please just give us robo umps already


AutisticHistoryLover

Wth, blue?


Aura_Masta420

Alright. What the fuck is wrong with [mlb.com](https://mlb.com)? I'm watching play by play and nothing is showing


artvandalay84

Is JD a part timer at this point? I swear he’s not in the booth most of the time I tune in.


mt77932

It's the first day of fall, cool weather, Cubs are winning, and I had 2 bowls of sausage stew from the crock pot. Good night.


steveofthejungle

What a beautiful 123

McK and 8-pitch ABs, name a more iconic duo

MUSHROOM MAN


lupin43

Mushroom!!!


rotallytad

Wait seiya is on paternity leave? So there’s a mini seiya? Omg that’s awesome


Spectre211286

he was on the Paternity list they transferred him to the restricted list. Paternity leave in MLB is only 3 games so this lets him stay out longer. I dont think the baby has been born yet but he is in Japan for it.


rotallytad

That’s real short for paternity leave. 3 games is basically 3 days.


mt77932

That's amazing! I wish him the best!


-_butters_-

I've often wondered what it's like to be a baseball player who hates wearing a hat, I'd like a segment with Wes on this as an anti-hat person myself


lupin43

First came the professor now comes the mad scientist. Cubs cornering the market on the academics


Aura_Masta420

Right on! Successful review!


lupin43

Nice work video crew!


Aura_Masta420

So, he's out?


Spectre211286

you have to be pretty certain to challenge in the 1st inning


Toxic_Waste

"Who reads lips better?" Jomboy.


lupin43

Don’t love possibly losing the challenge here so early, hope they were right!


AutisticHistoryLover

They were


AutisticHistoryLover

I say challenge that


lupin43

Oh man the buccos were really hyping up Hayes too, that’s tough. Was wondering where he was today


lupin43

Needed franimal to backpedal a little there, try to avoid/prolong that tag


rotallytad

Franimal reminds me of big Mike 👉🤜💎


steveofthejungle

[Beer of the game: Wasatch Pumpkin. A solid pumpkin beer that’s got some good spice. Also pumpkin gets too much hate. It’s not my favorite beer style but it’s got its merits. Also in my SB Cubs tumbler in honor of their Midwest league champs](https://imgur.com/a/LlJmA64)


-_butters_-

Ah shit didn't even think about pumpkin beer season, it's my PSL haha e: fun fact, IL is the biggest producer of pumpkins *by far*, so if you're eating or carving a pumpkin, good chance it's from IL


steveofthejungle

Oktoberfest beers are my PSLs, but I do love a pumpkin beer from time to time


AutisticHistoryLover

Just missed it


rotallytad

Ben gamel sounds like Ben camel. Fuk that guy


lupin43

How do we get laz Diaz behind the plate so often :/


AutisticHistoryLover

I'm going to take a risk and say Wesneski dominates again. He's been great so and has looked far better than the #3 starter billing the scouting reports were saying on him.


steveofthejungle

Game delayed until 7 eastern


-_butters_-

Clint Hurdle is still an asshole. Go Cubs! 🍻


rotallytad

We’re in the stretch run. I honestly think the cubs will go 13-0 to end the year.


Jdhill1188

Last night I was watching the Yankees and Pirates game with my son. It was the Pirates broadcast and they showed a Triple A update and my son was asking about the minor leagues and I explained how every team has single, double, and a triple a team and he said, "Triple A team, you mean like the White Sox?" I laughed really hard and texted that to my father in law who is a huge Sox fan. He called to talk to my son and he said, "So do you understand what Triple A is now?". My son said, "Yeah, it's a battery." Unintentionally hilarious. Probably going to be a stand up comedian when he grows up


nongzhigao

There are layers to unravel there, considering how badly they need to replace their manager to function properly lmao


jimmykane366

Happy Hayden Wesneski Day to all who celebrate
