    NLDS - San Francisco vs. Chicago

    A few hours before game time, but figured I might as well start this one.

    Is this the Cubs year?

    Theo signed an extension. Now, there is no benefit to the Cubs winning.

    Let their fans wait another year.

    No matter the outcome, that was a classic postseason game.

    Re: NLDS - San Francisco vs. Chicago

    A magnificent pitcher's duel between Jon Lester and Johnny Cueto which saw the Cubs outlast the Giants.

    Cueto made that one mistake to Javier Baez and Baez crushed it with some drama from the wind. Thankfully for Baez and the Cubs, there was a basket over Angel Pagan's head.

    Also, early baserunning blunders from the Giants cost them with Gorkys Hernandez caught stealing in the first after a leadoff single and Conor Gillaspie was picked off.

    In fact, the Giants had their leadoff man on for the first four innings and didn't score.

    Pet peeve about the coverage: It's kind of maddening the way MLB has a carouse of networks covering the games and I'm never really sure of what network has the game and at what time.

    I just bring up the onscreen schedule and scroll through until I hit "MLB baseball."

    Is no one following this one tonight? 4-0 Cubs after two, 4-2 after two and a half ... and now two Cubs outs in the third.

    Just turned it on in time to see Hendricks taken out of the game after being struck by a ball back to him.

    5-2 now, top of the 5th ... Bumgarner just pinch hit for the pitcher, hit a hard grounder and got to second on two Cubs errors!

    But the Cubbies get out of it, he's stranded on third.

    NL baseball can be real interesting at times.

    Cubs looking good.

    Yes, I missed it (I was on the phone), but the fifth Cub run scored on a solo homer by the pitcher who replaced Hendricks!

    Still 5-2 Cubs, top of the eighth. One on, one out, Rondon in.

    Chapman being Chapman ... 103 mph on the corner!

    Count me in among the baseball fans frustrated over the challenges it is to watch a playoff game. And yes, baseball has to compete with football, which is a lot more predictable in terms of time and channels.

    It's not fair. They have Chapman, he's good, and he's playing in the postseason.

    Re: NLDS - San Francisco vs. Chicago

    Both Chapman and Miller are on a different level than Dellin.

    I used to have them all somewhat interchangeable, but obviously, not any more.

    I hope Chapman comes back.

    Got the third out on another 103 mph heater ... this one swinging.

    Cubs win, go up 2-0 in the series. Like the Blue Jays, and the Indians.

    X-rays on Hendricks were negative, and he just said he's 100% sure he'll pitch again this postseason.

    Weird that two pitchers were already pulled this postseason because of being hit by comebackers.

    Re: NLDS - San Francisco vs. Chicago

    I nearly jumped out of my seat when I saw Alex Wood hit that home run. When was the last time a reliever (who has 10 career homers) hits a home run in a playoff game. You have to all the way back to 1924. MadBum even got into the game as a PH. This is why I say keep the NL rules the way they are.

    I would pay top dollar just to be in Bill Murray's section. I hope he makes it to every home game.

    [Wood] has mainly been a starter in his career, but this team has needed him to fill a variety of pen roles, and he is such a good athlete and hitter (he now has 10 career homers) Maddon has used him in the outfield when he wants not to lose the lefty for a later pitching matchup.

    Last year he made it to every game, home and away of the Mets sweep. He's not getting any younger so I'm sure he'll go to all games.

    Re: NLDS - San Francisco vs. Chicago

    The last time the San Francisco Giants were eliminated at home was back in 1997 in old Candlestick Park against the Florida/Miami Marlins when the Marlins beat them 6-2 thanks to a stunning grand slam from Devon White off Wilson Alvarez and complete a three-game sweep in the 1997 NLDS.

    The Giants have yet to be eliminated in AT&T Park.

    Madison Bumgarner will try to keep the Giants' season alive against Chicago Cub Jake Arrieta.

    The Cubs will also try to win a series on the road for the first time since 2003 when they beat the Atlanta Braves in five games.

    Angel Pagan scratched from the lineup due to back spasms; Gregor Blanco gets the start in left field.
