Good to see Kang in the lineup (but get better, Jordy!).

Any word on how long the delay will be?

I am not a big Tim Neverette fan. I really don't think he is very good. His calls are misleading and his baseball knowledge isn't what I want from my PBP guy.

Now, I may be wrong on this, but he just was talking about Kris Bryant and how the 12 days he stayed down delayed his arbitration for a year. I was under the impression it delays his free agency for a year. The arbitration would only be delayed if he stayed down past the Super 2 date which is usually in June.

I listened to Olney interview a Cubs' reporter on Friday. From what I remember from the discussion, the move delayed his free agent eligibility by a year. Not arbitration eligibility.

That's what I thought No. 9. The fact Neverette doesn't know tells me a lot.

I think this happened in the clubhouse before the Brewers series.

Another delay. Fan in front row behind home plate. Foul ball hit the net, but a woman was standing there and the give in the net was enough where she was struck in the back of the head. Pretty serious injury. 15 minute delay.

It seems with AJ it always his control that bites him. He hits Rizzo and that causes a run. Last game, two walks. My point is he is his own worst enemy. Otherwise, he is pitching 2013-like.

My MLB.tv has the Cubs announcers.

Did you know Kris Bryant saved 12 puppies on the way to the ballpark, saved the fan behind home plate hit with the foul ball, cured cancer, followed up with a 5-run HR, and pitched a CG shutout?

Well, it's true.

Can I borrow somebody's knitting needles? I have to punch out my eardrums ...

Exactly the reason I no longer watch it. Tomorrow's episode will be 30 min Tebow, 30 min Bryant.

All 4 Cubs runs came after there were no runners on and two outs. That cannot happen.

Yeah, they won't mention his horrible base running or error. :shock:
