* From my Beachwood Radio Sports Hour notes file:
* "It was (Heyward's) ground ball to second with men on second and third and none out in the top of the seventh inning that [purportedly] got his manager most excited.
"I love the ground ball to second, RBI," Joe Maddon said after the game. "Second and third, I've been waiting for that play. I always call that the double jeopardy. Move 'em over and get him in. That gets so overlooked in the scheme of things. It was outstanding."
* The Slide/s: Joe Maddon is just wrong. The more he lashes out and more stubborn he is the more wrong he is.
* Lineuptista Diva:
Unprompted, Maddon brought up "twitter questions" about the lineup. Insists will continue to rotate everyone. No change there. And he likes what Heyward is doing right now, hence batting second.— Jesse Rogers (@ESPNChiCubs) May 31, 2018
"Joe Maddon continues to rotate his players in and out of his lineups. Tonight Ian Happ is in CF while Albert Almora Jr and Addison Russell get the day off: Ben Zobrist is at 2b with Javy Baez at SS: 'I can't emphasize enough, for those on twitter asking these questions, it's really important to balance all these guys' playing time and if you look at their at-bats right now it's pretty even.'"
Now Cubs Twitter getting into the act.
