Yeah, they could at least try to experiment with an extension towards or past the dugouts. Some of the worst carnage was up the baselines, though.

I was just a few rows off the field for Friday's game and got to see Ryan Howard re-live the glory years.

Thumbs Up

Looks like there's still some fire in the BoSox/Yankees rivalry. Probably the biggest win for the Yankees this season. Plus, Farrell and Papi get ejected for arguing some questionable strikes at the end. Good times.

Questionable is an understatement. That second to last pitch to Ortiz was almost in the dirt.

He had a right to be pissed.

Oh yeah. That was the umpire's way of saying "Fuck you!".

So much for the battle between two of the (supposed) best teams in the league. Not even Arietta having an off day can stop these Cubs.

I'm expecting another 90 win season from us that ultimately goes nowhere.

Bryce Harper will be chomping at the bit to stick around for more NLDS exits.

Cubs run differential is +102. The next highest is the Mets with +43.

That's staggering.

They're a juggernaut currently. But its only May 8. Health will be a big key for them over the long haul.

Their team strikeout rate is starting to creep up a little after a great start, which is about the best hope I've got right now.

They look incredibly tough out of the gate.

they had the third worst strike out rate of all time last year. You don't WANT to see the strike outs, but I'm not gonna panic yet.

I'm at home in Indiana this week. Not going to Wrigley is killing me. I might crack and go to tomorrow's game, but it remains to be seen.

Health has already reared its head with Schwarber out for the season. They've only lost 6 games without him but the lineup would certainly be deadlier over the long haul.

Keep in mind that Heyward and Soler aren't even batting to their potentials yet.

I doubt you'd regret going, and it's not like tickets are expensive.

Right... which is why the Mets were able to sweep them. High strikeout hitters vs a slew of strikeout pitchers. Contrast that with Kansas City. Those fucks never strike out.
