Who’s Going To Finish?

Joe Maddon needs a stopper, a finisher.  A closing pitcher he can count on.  Day in, day out.  It is the pitcher that other teams don’t want to see under any circumstances when it is time for the starter’s departure.

The Cubs don’t have that kind of pitching.  They need it.  Somebody who paints the strike zone on their own terms with an ERA of approximately 2.00 or, so.

All of that said, yesterday’s starter was Jon Lester who looked good.  He just was not sharp!  A combination bullpen replacement had to throw through 11 innings.

The bullpen did their best at maintaining nerves typically on the high end as the Reds were able to put 3 on with nobody out.   The bullpen surprised with nerves at their highest by holding the Reds to no damage done.

The Cubs would carve out an 11 inning victory 2-1 with details at the

Who’s going to reign on tonight’s parade finish with the Indians?  Rain!  It is a no go on tonight’s game in Chicago.
