Oh wow I was sure that was the game off the bat. I guess I was wrongly right lol
#FLY THE W
#[ W ]
That was close
I have a headache. Please let’s get an out.
Edit: Thank you Michael Hermosillo!
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
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.
Mervis and Canario both with 35 homers on the year is crazy
I really want to see Mervis make the opening day roster next year
Like that kind of good news
Is Ross suffering from the result of foul balls off his mask?
f u strikes
Minor heart attack there
Hopefully, just rolled it
Edit: Willson thought his ankle was OK when he first rolled it. I hope Hughes isn’t really injured
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.
Willson still on the IL
Nice quality start by Wesneski!
All star next year
I dont think Ive ever heard Boog yell that loud
Wesneski's stuff is just unfair
Well that’s what you get for the stupid flashing lights
Come on, Pittsburgh, get your nonsense together
Pay your electrical bill
Pretty clear he was taxed, don’t like him being trotted out for the seventh
Any video of the immaculate inning yet?
Hermosillo coming through!
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
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.
its interesting that 4 of the 5 occurred in september and the only one that wasnt is late August.
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.
And of course they didn’t.
Ross is not good at pulling starters (among many other things)
He looked a little tired; might be a good time to pull him.
That’s a gg for Wesneski, good quality start
Let’s fucking go Wesneski
The fuck just happened?
I’m starting the Hayden Wesneski 2023 Cy Young campaign
First Cubs immaculate inning since latroy Hawkins in 04 LMAO
You never know what you’re going to see in any given baseball game - maybe even history being made
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.
I saw it as well. I'm watching Marquee in the FuboTV app on my Roku.
Happened to me too
Thanks. Glad to know it’s not just me
Wesneski gives me great hope for the future
Whooooo! Immaculate inning!
(wonder when the last one was for the Cubs)
Wesneski is insane. He's just a rookie but he's looking like a top of the rotation arm
fuckyeah fellow Pole?
IMMACULATE INNING BABY!!
This dude is unreal
Wesneski with the immaculate inning!
Wesneski is special
I think we found something in this Wesneski kid
Brah, the polish power arm is killing it.
Wesneski is the superior Ski
Yo what up it’s Jamie fox!!!!!!!!!
Possibly one of the ugliest hit and run attempts you’ll ever see lol
The "you look like Tony Hawk" treatment
Joey Votto is my goddam hero. And has an amazing beard to boot
The laz Diaz strike zone rears its head again
im so fucking sick of watching players get called out on shit pitches like that. Please just give us robo umps already
Alright. What the fuck is wrong with [mlb.com](https://mlb.com)? I'm watching play by play and nothing is showing
Is JD a part timer at this point? I swear he’s not in the booth most of the time I tune in.
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.
What a beautiful 123
McK and 8-pitch ABs, name a more iconic duo
Wait seiya is on paternity leave? So there’s a mini seiya? Omg that’s awesome
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.
That’s real short for paternity leave. 3 games is basically 3 days.
That's amazing! I wish him the best!
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
First came the professor now comes the mad scientist. Cubs cornering the market on the academics
Right on! Successful review!
Nice work video crew!
So, he's out?
you have to be pretty certain to challenge in the 1st inning
"Who reads lips better?"
Don’t love possibly losing the challenge here so early, hope they were right!
I say challenge that
Oh man the buccos were really hyping up Hayes too, that’s tough. Was wondering where he was today
Needed franimal to backpedal a little there, try to avoid/prolong that tag
Franimal reminds me of big Mike 👉🤜💎
[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)
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
Oktoberfest beers are my PSLs, but I do love a pumpkin beer from time to time
Just missed it
Ben gamel sounds like Ben camel. Fuk that guy
How do we get laz Diaz behind the plate so often :/
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.
Game delayed until 7 eastern
Clint Hurdle is still an asshole. Go Cubs! 🍻
We’re in the stretch run. I honestly think the cubs will go 13-0 to end the year.
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
There are layers to unravel there, considering how badly they need to replace their manager to function properly lmao
Happy Hayden Wesneski Day to all who celebrate
[ Steele threw a light “touch and feel” bullpen on Wed.
• Hoerner/Contreras will do pregame work on field today.
• Recent procedural move: Suzuki to restricted list (to extend his time on pat leave).
