What a nice way to end the game there, Addison Russell.
He's got 12 RBIs so far, none of them more spectacular (so far) than the 3 he knocked in with his 9th inning dinger yesterday, giving the Cubs a nice W.
Here's hoping he'll surpass the 95 he got last year.
The Cubs have come from behind in 3 of their 8 wins so far, and it's awesome and exciting to watch.
But I sure would like to see less of that, because usually it means the starter gave up some early runs.
As a fan, Kyle Hendricks is alot more fun to watch when he's missing bats and that hasn't been happening yet.
The expectations for him skyrocketed last year, and I really REALLY hope he has an awesome year this year so nobody can say "2016 was a fluke".
You ever have a conversation with yourself about.. who's your fav Cub?
I said "conversation" on purpose because that question never ends.
But I always tend to gravitate towards the guys who aren't Athletic God's Gifts.
That's not to say that Hendricks isn't an incredible athlete, but he doesn't have the power tools other do.
He won the last game of the NLCS and started the last game of the WS.
What super hero would that make him?
Isn't there a guy who can like, kill a bad guy by throwing a playing card or something?
Name should be Deadly Aim.
Anyway, I really want that Hendricks back soon - his Spring was amazing, and I'm sure that's coming.
Okay gotta get going but... after the sweepy Pittsburgh hiccup, these handy come from behinders vs the Brewers sure make life alot more smiley.
