Cubs need Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo to produce or else their reign as defending World Series champs is over

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 22:05:22 GMT

Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo are the yin and yang of the Cubs lineup, the right- and left-handed forces that feed off each other, two huge building blocks for a World Series team, the smiling faces of the franchise, an ideal brand for social media and two friends close enough that Rizzo became a groomsman at Bryant's Las Vegas wedding in January. With the defending champs now down 0-2 in a best-of-seven National League Championship Series – and the Los Angeles Dodgers looking like an updated version of the 2016 Cubs – winter is coming if Bryzzo Souvenir Co. doesn't start producing soon. Take away the 9-8 outlier against the Washington Nationals – where an intentional walk, a passed ball on a swinging strike three, a catcher interference and a hit by pitch sparked a big rally – and the Cubs have scored 11 runs in six playoff games this October.



Keep track of the MLB postseason, one game at a time

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 03:36:11 GMT

The 2017 MLB playoffs are here, with 10 teams providing us several storylines to watch this October, from the wild card games all the way through the World Series. We had three 100-win teams — the Los Angeles Dodgers, Cleveland Indians, and Houston Astros — for just the sixth time in major league history and the first time since 2003. There were a trio of great turnaround stories as well. The Minnesota Twins had the worst record in baseball in 2016 with 103 losses, but this year they’re in the postseason as the second American League Wild Card, the first team ever to make the playoffs one year after losing 100 games. In the National League, the Arizona Diamondbacks rebounded from a 93-loss campaign



Breaking down where Cubs can turn NLCS around and beat L.A.

Tue, 17 Oct 2017 04:33:33 GMT

"Sometimes, you got to lay your marbles out there," Jon Lester said Sunday night inside Dodger Stadium's visiting clubhouse, before the Cubs flew home from Los Angeles down 0-2 in the National League Championship Series. It will be extremely difficult for the Cubs to win four of the next five games against the Dodgers, starting Tuesday night at Wrigley Field. There is a cross section left of the 2015 team that beat the Pittsburgh Pirates and silenced PNC Park's blackout crowd in a sudden-death wild-card game.



Wade Davis won't second-guess the decision that kept him on the sideline 

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 05:50:36 GMT

The Cubs talked a good game on Sunday night, manager Joe Maddon explaining his ninth-inning strategy during a Dodger Stadium press conference and the defending World Series champs standing at their lockers answering positive-slant questions about how they've been through this before and already done the impossible. The year after Maddon took so much heat for how hard he pushed All-Star closer Aroldis Chapman – and three days removed from Davis getting the seven-out save that eliminated the Washington Nationals – all the focus shifted to how John Lackey wound up allowing the three-run homer Justin Turner launched over the center-field wall.



Why Cubs won't turn their back on Javier Baez

Mon, 16 Oct 2017 01:02:45 GMT

Without Javier Baez, the Cubs would still be hearing about 1908 and feeling the suffocating pressure from not winning a World Series. "Javy loves this time of the year," Maddon said before Sunday's Game 2 at Dodger Stadium.
