Ahhh, watching these kids grow.
Gotta take the good with the bad, right?
During their 6-game winning streak, not one error.
But last night there were errors by Kris Bryant, Addison Russell, and Starlin Castro that turned into runs.
Another pitching gem, this one by Jason Hammel, out the window.
Cubs lose 3-4 in San Diego despite 2 homers from Chris Coghlan and one from Dexter Fowler.
2 of those homers came off James Shields.
As Lou Piniella once said, "What are you gonna do?"
Maybe Big Bird has the answer.
Yesterday had some kinda huge news with the trade of Welington Castillo to Seattle for reliever Yoervis Medina, who's in Iowa.
Miguel Montero has been SO good, you knew this was coming and not soon enough for the bullpen, which was gasping for air.
Then the Cubs let Phil Coke go, sent Brian Schlitter back down, made Tsuyoshi Wada a starter, Travis Wood a reliever, and then brought up some cavalry in outfielders Junior Lake and Mike Baxter (who can also back up first).
That's alotta change.
Wada starts tonight.
Just because they're such a better/different team I wish the schedule had the 2nd Cubs/Padres series later in the season but these next 2 games will be it.
Cubs overall down 1-3 and hopefully tie it up by Thursday.
And... I still hate you, Steve Garvey.
PS: HAWKS WIN! 3 overtimes? Ow, but also awesome.
