    Because they roll over and die.

    I'm saying, let's fight. 3 innings to hit.

    Not sure what everyone was expecting but the fact is they don't hit. They need walks or HRs to put any runs on the board. Just look at their hit totals...they've had a total of 55 hits in their last 10 games. Less than 6 hits a game. Not gonna get many runs like that without a bunch of walks tossed in. Their pitching is pretty good but not that good....they need a bit of run support which other than a handful of games, has not been there. The only hope was that the playoffs is a new season and maybe they start hitting better....nothing looks much different to me.

    Eh, I'm not sure I agree. The Cubs pen is not something I trust. Hendricks is a GB machine. Hes one pitch away from a double play.

    As we saw, Jeffress was all over the place. Hes been hanging on by a thread all year as is.

    I dont really agree. I still think Hendricks there was generally fine. Hendricks is one of the 2 or 3 best arms on the team. Its hard to complain with him there.

    Right, ok let him back out there but first baserunner he comes out, instead he stayed in and gave up another baserunner
    Now Ross is really playing with fire hoping Hendricks can pitch out of a jam 4 innings in a row while over 100 pitches and their top of order up seeing him for a 4th time

    The play-by-play guy is annoying.

    This is the headline. Everyone will talk about the Hendricks decision, but the Cubs offense has disappeared when it matters most, again. One crooked number and we're right back in this game, but that feels basically impossible.
