Chicago Cubs vs. San Diego Padres preview, Sunday 7/21, 1:20 CT

Photo by David Banks/ The Cubs go for their fifth win in a row. Sunday notes: The Cubs have won seven of eight since the All-Star break. The only other year in Cubs history where that happened was 2007. (H/T: Ed Hartig) The announced crowd of 40,314 Saturday put the Cubs over the two million mark for the season (2,001,816). That’s an average of 37,770 per date, a pace for 3,059,379. That would be about 122,000 fewer than 2018. However, the average for the eight games on the homestand is 39,268, and with an upcoming Wrigley weekend against the Brewers next month, the overall average...

2019 Cubs Heroes and Goats: Game 98

Quinn Harris-USA TODAY Sports The Cubs stay hot with another 6-5 win. On two very warm days on the North Side of Chicago, some very sloppy baseball has been played. Fortunately, the Cubs are catching the Padres during a downswing in their metamorphosis into a competitive team. That team on the other side has quite a bit of talent and I’m seeing a team that will be a force to be reckoned with, probably sooner than later. Alas, two games in, the Cubs have two wins. That runs them up to a four game winning streak, seven of eight coming out of the break and nine of 11 dating back to...

Come ON, man. Nice radio voice but seriously, it’s not so hard. Keen-’Tahn-Uh. See? That was some weird baseball. Javy Javy’d, and that’s the big story, at least if you sneak a peek below the line. That and HOT. It was hotter in Chicago than it was here for a while, and we ended up at...

Cubs 6, Padres 5: El Mago works his magic again

Cubs 6, Padres 5: El Mago works his magic again

Photo by David Banks/ Javier Baez had three hits and an “El Mago” tag, and the Cubs won their fourth in a row. Some of the play in the Cubs’ 6-5 win over the Padres was sloppy, as it was Friday. I’m going to close the complaint department door on that, though, because it was hot and tropical at the ballpark Saturday and just as happens in extremely cold weather, it’s hard for players to be at their best in games like this. They wear long pants, heavy polyester jerseys, shirts under the jerseys to wick away moisture... I can totally understand some of the misplays and...
