Finally, fast ball. Hope that settles him.

 

Edit- 10th! I wonder who will pitch theirs, Chapman is knackered and doesn't pitch for this long.

 

Ffs, rain. Also, forgot Ohio is Eastern time, it's midnight there.

Tarp coming off. Damn, that's the first home run Chapman has given away as a Cub.

 

Going to be a lot of knackered people at work tomorrow.

 

Edit- see how dark the outfield is? Must be wet and maybe slick. Arf.

Opening day of the season! Cards Cubs on ESPN now, for anyone with access. Was kinda exciting seeing the camera pan out on Busch Stadium after the (awesome, Ingrid Berry) anthem, I recognized the Build a Bear shop where my kids and cousins cost me an arm and a leg last time I was there.

 

I'm going with a Cards win toni especially to spite my wife's boss who drove all the way down to St Louis to watch the Cubs. 

 

Go Cards.

Oh man, a 1 nothing game with the Cards fairly comfortable, then it all happens in the 8th. Change of pitcher and the Cubs load their bases with Bryant on plate, but he's caught out and the next guy is caught straight out. Bottom of the 8th, Cards have a man on first, again, when Grichuk knocks a home run in the driving rain (the slow mo replayed looked brilliant). 

 

Course, we're showboating in the 9th, fluff a double play to let the Cubs get 2 on base and they get a bloody home run to draw it level.

 

Bottom of the 9th, we're bases loaded and Grichuk on plate, he taps the wall and we score to win 4-3. Brilliant :)

I ended up watching the Diamondbacks against the Giants - seemed to follow a similar pattern to the above! Good stuff.

 

My interest in baseball is always peaked by the release of the new MLB game each year. They're pretty fantastic. Sadly, after a couple of years of being drafted by teams I a) know a bit about and b) wanted to play for, this season I got drafted by the Padres and am currently sitting around in their Double A affiliate the San Antonio Missions, smashing home runs, batting in over 100 RBI's and having a season AVG of 0.320 in front of a packed crowd of about 15 people.

 

Oh well. At least I won't be as disappointed as last year, when I was drafted by my favourite team (Red Sox) and then, just as I was getting a foothold in their team, got traded to the Oakland Athletics for a relief pitcher :facepalm:

So Cleveland reached 21 wins on the bounce. That is pretty impressive. Now that Cubs have broken their curse, would be pretty amazing if the another drought went the following season. Cubs lead their division but look a long way off a repeat World Series win, guess they won't mind waiting a couple of years...

The Nationals, have conceded only 8 runs all series, were 4-1 ahead against the Cubs in the NLDS decider, gave away 2 runs then had a collective brainfart in the 4th to fall behind, and now a mis-field in the 6th to leave the Cubs 8-4 up. Bit of a clown show.

 

Dodgers must be looking on with their feet up and planning their World Series locker room playlists.

 

Edit: Cubs’ bullpen is letting the Nationals back in. 9-8 at the bottom of the 8th. Really could go either way at the minute.

 

Edit Edit!: Cubs win! 9-8. Nationals lose their 874th post-season deciding game... that was tense.

Yeah, that 5th inning was insane. Scherzer had 2 of the 3 outs needed then all Hell broke loose!

5th! Sorry, I was dizzy from the madness. It was like the Nationals suddenly forgot how to play baseball. Was pretty much chaos from that point onwards.

Fair way to go, and they’re still 2-1 down, but looking like the Yankees have that all important momentum. Lost narrowly in both Houston games, then absolutely tanked the Astros last night.

 

Looking like no repeat for the Cubs; Dodgers a cut above so far. Sure the Blue Crew would love to face the Yankees and stir the old rivalry once again.
