Bringing it all back home. Including: The Bunt Is Back!; Keys To Kyle Vs. Clayton; Players Performing Playoffy; Problematic Pitching Problems; Jay Cutler's Thumb Vs. Johnny Manziel's Drinking Problem, and; Your World Champion LA Sparks.
* John Smoltz is good at his new job:
Wow John Smoltz is some kind of broadcaster. Notes lazy spin on Blanton's slider, then Blanton throws it again and Montero hits it a mile.— Tyler Kepner (@TylerKepner) October 16, 2016
* Funny, but unfair, according to Coffman:
* How Vin Scully Is Spending The Playoffs:
1:49: The Bunt Is Back!
* Jon "Lackey" Lester:
17:44: Keys To Kyle vs. Clayton.
* Be aggressively disciplined.
* Free Willy!
WC a little showboating on the way to first holding up his hand and looking into Cubs bench. Oh and WHY ISN'T HE PLAYING MORE!— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) October 21, 2016
It's time for Joe Maddon to sit Jason Heyward https://t.co/zioTY76EBT— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) October 21, 2016
25:52: Players Performing Playoffy.
* Javy Baez is hitting 368/.381 in the postseason. Oh, and he's playing a little defense, too:
Javier Baez had an exchange of 0.57 seconds on the bunt ground out of Adrian Gonzalez. Arm strength 74 MPH.— Daren Willman (@darenw) October 21, 2016
Baez had a 99% efficiency route on the bunt with 80mph arm strength and a 1% chance of making the play. (By my stat tracking mind)— wayne schnier (@mustangbaseball) October 21, 2016
Greatest sports play ever?
Addison Russell is also pretty good:
Zobrist said he thought about bunting "two days ago." : "I've said it before I'm not a clean up hitter I just bat fourth."— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) October 20, 2016
* John Baker: Playing The Right Way?
"I'm going to hit a bomb today, pop this rosary out of my jersey, and spin it around my neck before I walk halfway down the line."
43:28: Problematic Pitching Problems.
* Strop, Rondon, Chapman, Lackey, Arrieta. And what's up with Carl Edwards Jr.?
* The Z Man!
* Magic Mike:
3 months ago, I never could've imagined that Mike Montgomery would be saving the #Cubs' bacon in the NLCS...because I'd never heard of him.— Frustrated Fan (@Frustrated_Fan) October 20, 2016
Arrieta/Montero combo was statistically the easiest to steal on, of any pitcher-catcher duo in entire playoffs. Silly to bunt on pitch 1.— Matt Spiegel (@MattSpiegel670) October 19, 2016
55:54: Jay Cutler's Thumb vs. Johnny Manziel's Drinking Problem.
Next man up:
The #Bears should sign:— Beachwood Reporter (@BeachwoodReport) October 21, 2016
