Chicago Cubs vs. Milwaukee Brewers preview, Friday 9/22, 6:35 CT


The Cubs go for two straight over the Brewers. Notes for the final Friday road game of the 2017 regular season: The comeback victory Thursday night was the Cubs’ 42nd of the season, second-most in the N.L. (Dodgers, 44) and tied for third-most in the majors with the Royals. Last night marked the Cubs’ fifth win in which they trailed entering the ninth inning. That’s tied for third-most in the N.L. with Pittsburgh, trailing only Los Angeles (eight wins) and Philadelphia (six wins). Five is a lot (the Phillies being on this list is pretty weird). Most teams win one or two games a year trailing entering the ninth. Last year the Cubs had eight such wins. Kris Bryant’s home run was his second career blast in extra innings. He also hit a similar two-run game-winning homer in the 10th inning, August 26, 2016 at Los Angeles. That’s the game when Cubs fans at Dodger Stadium started chanting, loudly, “MVP! MVP!” The Cubs are 39-27 vs. the N.L. Central (.591), by far the best intra-divisional record of any N.L. Central team (the Brewers are second at 35-32). Here are today’s particulars. Cubs lineup: Jay CF, Bryant 3B, Rizzo 1B, Zobrist 2B, Avila C, Schwarber LF, Heyward RF, Baez SS, Lackey P Here is tonight's #Cubs starting lineup.Game preview:— Chicago Cubs (@Cubs) September 22, 2017 This is a good idea and I hope the Cubs will consider doing the same. Cubs spokesman Julian Green told me, “The safety of our fans is paramount to a great game day experience. We will continue to work with Major League Baseball to discuss and explore ways to ensure the safest possible environment for our guests.” I attended the Cubs/Mets games at the Tokyo Dome in Japan in 2000. Japanese parks, as noted by Passan, have netting that goes from foul pole to foul pole. The seats I had for those games were about 20 rows back, about halfway between the infield and the left-field wall. I didn’t have any trouble or issues seeing the game and the nets didn’t bother me at all. It’s something that would be different, to be sure, but I think people would get accustomed to them very quickly. (Note: I’m not suggesting foul pole to foul pole nets in MLB parks, only that nets in general don’t obscure views.) The photo above shows the current configuration of the nets at Wrigley Field (photo was taken June 2, 2017). Extending the nets to the ends of the dugouts, as the Reds say they are doing, would be a good start. The owner of the Cardinals has come out in favor of this. As noted in the Reds announcement, they’ll install this expanded netting at Great American Ball Park for Opening Day 2018. The Cubs will, as they have for the last several offseasons, be doing various construction work around Wrigley Field this offseason. I hope they add expanded netting to that list of projects. [...]
