ALCS Evens Up, NLCS Gets Started, Hernandez, Soriano, Strop, Happ, and Other Cubs Bullets

I’m solo with the kiddos this morning, and so they’re not tremendous eager to provide me a lot mind area to bust out these Bullets. Forgive the brevity and/or any typos …

•   The NLCS kicked off final night time with a incredible recreation, tight all through, after which a walk-off winner for Austin Riley after Ozzie Albies stole second base. That’s simply enjoyable to me:

•   The Pink Sox opened ALCS Sport Two with TWO grand slams, although the Astros nearly made it a recreation late:

•   Kiké Hernandez homered once more, leaving him in uncommon firm:

•   That Alfonso Soriano stretch got here shortly after he was traded by Cubs to the Yankees, which is unimaginable as a result of he had ANOTHER five-homer stretch (not as many hits although) simply earlier than he was traded. That one arguably allowed them to maneuver him for an fascinating pitching prospect regardless of the remnants of his contract (the pitcher was Corey Black, who underwent a number of surgical procedures and by no means emerged with the Cubs). That center chunk of 2013, the man hit .301/.347/.677 over 144 PAs from early July to mid-August. Then in 2014, he was simply accomplished.

•   Stats which might be merely stats, and I didn’t say it:

•   Outdated good friend Pedro Strop goes to pitch within the Dominican winter league this yr for the Leones del Escogido. He final pitched there a couple of decade in the past, the offseason earlier than he was traded to the Cubs and broke out.

•   At first that is only a disappointing oops by the pitcher, however then it turns hilarious, so it’s all good:

•   La Vida Baseball:

•   Bulls are getting near the ultimate roster image:

•   Beat ’em deep right now, Justin Fields: | ALCS Evens Up, NLCS Will get Began, Hernandez, Soriano, Strop, Happ, and Different Cubs Bullets
