Cubs 8, Phillies 4: Cubs drop a couple of big bombs on rookie Cole Irvin
"Irvine's third start didn't go. Well gave up. Two home runs to win over four hundred feet of peace in accounted for seven of the cubs runs as Chicago beat the Phillies eight to four getting get through five. So I'm I'm really disappointing sounds like Vince Velazquez is pretty close to coming off the injured list. He was dealing with a strain forearm gave Kappler's got a decision to make. Now, I think that's something that we want to spend some time thinking about after a loss like this. And after we just kinda got punched, I think the main thing is that we go back and digest and look at what happened in the game. And really evaluate it with a little distance between what has happened. Alaska's told reporters that his rotation spot is his Kappler said he doesn't see as a right, the Phillies did not make former Philly Cole hamels pay last night. He threw ninety nine pitches over four innings. But the fills were also for fifteen invented scoring position. They will try for a series split this afternoon. Kappler's got his main bullpen pieces to work with which wasn't the case. The other night he admits if late inning. Pat shack needs more time the warm up he's got to give it to them. No matter what, you know, when I find something out about our players, which is that they need a little something a little different kind of support I need to step up and give it to talking in the Phillies radio network.

"T five Cadillac sports is recreate have staked John Lester to a lead. What's he doing with it against the Marlins? Let's find out from our Dave Kerner Wrigley field. Dave so far so good for John Lester here in the bottom of the second one. Nothing comes lead as you said Kris Bryant will they triple into the right field quarter. He would eventually score on a heavy bias sac fly. Now, the wind blowing in pretty good that buys fly. Ball might have been a home run on a normal night on the other hand, Starling Castro light well of had a three run Homer. The top of the first off of LeicesteR if not for the wind blowing in his fly ball ended that inning Lester is given up two hits through two one. Nothing comes in the bottom of the second live at Wrigley field. Dave colonels radio on one point nine FM. And they've got a chance to get back on top of the NFL central.

"john lester" Discussed on Baseball Tonight with Buster Olney
"Yeah. He's worked his butt off. Let's start with that as most elite hit. Do that are struggling his dad's been on the phone with them often? His dad is actually in town for this ten game. Homestead. Now, that's kind of his personal hitting coach. He's he's quieter at the plate. He talked about this the other day. He's he's less bat movement less movement in general, and he's is timing. His on great example was last night against the Marlins. He got a cookie in the ninth inning. Now. A lot of times guys struggling gets a cookie. He follows it straight back. This guy hit onto wavelength avenue last night. Great sign that is timing is back. So a lot of people were were confused by struggles. It's it's just like anyone else that struggles. It just happened to be the beginning of the season in a guy coming off the injury. So I didn't see anything that outrageous in terms of making changes. He did the little things any great hitter. Would and his timing got back to where it normally is when he's going well PO possibly the fact that he didn't play a lot last year. And when he did play he was favoring. An injured shoulder maybe that threw him off. And he needed a month to get back into rhythm. Because if you don't hit for seven eight months as your normal self you get taken out of who you are. That's all possible. I don't think anything that. He was going through was was a major issue for him. And he came out of it pretty well here. What are you seeing different in you Doris so far early this year? Well, there are times where he attacks. And but those times are only when he when he has his fastball. I mean, how can you attack it without your fastball? It's really difficult. I think Cole hamels. John Lester have set a great example for the rest of the staff just pump the zone with strikes. Don't worry about a solo home run. You know, what it's like this. These days BUSTER it's hard to put together four or five hits in an inning. You're only going to get beat up in a crooked number put up against you. If you give up walks, and then the hits come so Darvish in certain moments has been able to to attack better in use the the great stuff he has. He had a great start in here. Zona where he grind it through the first two innings got out of a bases loaded jam and then started getting out within the strike zone when he's going. Well, he doesn't have to get guys to chase. He can get guys out in the strikes on the problem is BUSTER since early in spring training. There have been few moments where he's had his fastball command. It's it's come and gone through basically since March and last start was a great example. He could not throw his fastball for a strike Jomon talks about it often. If you can't do that, you're pretty much screwed the fact that he's been able to throw his secondary pitches for strikes he survived a few outings. But that's all he's done is surviving really hasn't thrived more than once. So I give them credit for being honest. And I give them a everyone sees it. It's right there if you don't have your fastball, you're in trouble. What the answer is. I'm not sure, but they're working on it. I know that there are at least he's gotten past just nibbling on his own. Now, he's nibbling because he can't find. He can't find his fastball command. So I do think that mentally there's been an adjustment. But physically right now he doesn't have his fastball. Thirty seconds left. Wendy think we'll see Addison Russell in the big leagues. I think you'll see him tomorrow. If there's an injury. I do not believe that they're going to suppress him. If they need them right now, they don't need him. But I would say in two or three weeks time they're probably going to have to make a decision. Be interesting. What Scott Boris has to say and the players association if this guy's tearing it up at triple A BUSTER they've outfielder of twenty-fifth man on the roster..

"I think one of the biggest things there Ricard said the other day yesterday of SOX fest is that six or seven teams when when Vegas put out odds or whoever puts out is they've put out is who is going to get Machado or Harper. And there were six or seven teams in the White Sox and not even including her good. Yeah. Even included now up until yesterday when the Padres got back involved. Everyone said it was the Phillies are the White Sox Machado. And he said dad, we belong at the table for all these all this premium talented. That's that's what White Sox fans wanna hear. If there's a guy out there. The White Sox want to be involved in sacks fans wanted that way. Sox have spent a lot of money or ton of money is everyone now would say, Yep. Yep. You hear when jed Hoyer was on? He used to be drinking games, but we don't advocate that anymore. But. Oh, rob. Dan diker? Ten minutes in everybody'd be. But so generally well educated. Leaguer though. Well, educated I think like central Michigan or wherever they even let him sound even let him housing you'll even associated with right haircut on the right? The shirt, okay. Walk. I like sometimes even talk like, you could lose your mind. So. If you. But if he's on seven minutes, he'll say a ton seven times, it's amazing. Oh, we had a ton of success in the minors last year, and you know, shifting Rizzo unhappily at time last year and a ton of improvement by okay, fine. Okay. Can you find a new word? Let's go the other thing. The other thing is people. Remember by the White Sox wanted to go after Lewis, Robert. And they did they got Louis Robert international signing at a constant twenty four million. A penalty was gone. Yeah. They've spent a ton of money, right? They got they got. Thank you, a twenty four million dollars it cost Lewis, Robert because they kinda went outside some of the rules, and they got fined for it. You know, what they got Louis, Robert? And I saw this guy yesterday. He's a monster. And when you're going to get a guy who lose Louise, Robert, Mike or Adolfo, Louis Bassano. Somebody's guys are guys who are going to be moved to make the White Sox better as a shooter bus right now. Win those guys and all the pitchers they have you know, there's a lot of excitement out there. A lot of money big money on international signings. Jurors hopefully for fan if you want Manny, and it's fifty fifty. If those were SOX fans voting or whatever, but you would think that they set aside a little money for the John Lester type move that the cubs made a year or two before let's go to the phones. I hear chip and Villa Park wants to jump in with you, Fred. Hey chip morning, gentlemen. He had questioned regarding the replay talk. I guess this could also apply to baseball as well as football. But why is it? And I know you I think you touched on a little bit before. But why not just have in oil from the league office assigned to each game in each city as opposed to sending everything back to New York? And I guess in baseball's case, for example, I recall a game a couple of years ago. White Sox Detroit close call it went against what we were getting his replay in Chicago. But the the what they said was perhaps New York got a different freed from Detroit. Right. I guess why can't you just have everything centralized in that location, and insofar as football if you have a country of games running concurrently. At the same time. What if you have controversial calls that occur at the same time in different games? Isn't that gonna delay the time that New York has to look at it to get back to your game? Chip. I'm not sure if in the NFL they have a different guy watching each game separately. If that's the case, though, why not just do it each ballpark. Wouldn't it just make it simpler, and given it gives them access to every angle that is possible for that broadcast. Right. It makes complete sense. That's why I guess it's never happened. It's it's the easiest thing in the world. Instead of instead of major league baseball in the NFL building billion dollar video replay rooms that every call goes to New York. As we should all do it. You can do it. Live in Villa Park. You can do it in Villa Park. I can do it back L downers grove. We can do it anywhere James and frigates eighty one. Fighting over. We split them. Thanks. I'm good with is they can cut some of that pie. That major league baseball has got the revenues. I'm in on it. And it will meet over a more brewing for a few bears. Sounds good. Okay. Thank you.

I may sample one today after I go out and bring my car in because my window won't go up. This a bad time for your window to go up. I had that in the summer, and it was no good. Because I go, you know, what if what if what if it rains did it make a big clunking sound when it stopped working? And then it sell down like mine didn't halfway into the door halfway up. Then went down there. What halfway up then it went down. Now all the way in and I can tell it's completely off the track. Well, who is? Made his unbelievable noise. Once when I was trying to lower it, and it just only and it was only like about three hundred and fifty dollar apart better be less than that. Put your furnace is working. Yeah. We got that work for you. Yeah. The dealership later on today. That's what I got to look forward to. But you know, what they will prioritize this. You'll beat the front of the line. We'll see. Batteries. Now. We'll humor's window won't go. We'll see. All right. Leave it outside for the weekend. Cubs fans. Got a Twitter poll for you. In fact, I got a couple Tom Ridge's. Name will be an all of these next three so vote right now cub fans at ESPN one thousand. I work with his stick with me one-two-three number one, which is more important at Tom Ricketts, a or b a signing Harper. Remodeling the ballpark and the neighborhood and the building some more restaurants and the visitors locker room, what's more important to Tom Ricketts signing. Harper are remodeling the ballpark and the entire neighborhood. Number two. Should Tom Ricketts not a Jared Miller park after twenty years they had a twenty year deal with Miller Brewing at two million per year was a forty million dollars twenty year. They call it naming rights and American family insurance, huge in up in Wisconsin. Right and Wayne, Larry Ueno. I've I've heard him over the years on this Packer football, Neil WTMJ's. He's always is pitch, man. Snaps person for them. So they bought the naming rights. I never thought that had to be at least probably four million a year twenty and fifteen years. Conservative. So I'm glad you mentioned of number two shirt time Ricketts. Yes, sir. Now sell the naming rights of Wrigley field. Immediately. I'd say immediately if not sooner. What are you wind had called Hubner stadium? It can be called anything just like just like Camden Yards. It was because you always you add that along with the other one. How 'bout US cellular field? Yeah. Guaranteed rate field. I don't care if the if the organization is going to be able to make money if the organization is going to be able to make money eventually will help the team. I don't care what you call it. So number one is the stadium. It's just a ballpark which is. Fans are tipped off about this. Yeah. The the biggest question is are they still going to be serving Miller beer? Probably not. I don't know. I shouldn't say who knows Miller beer could they can his say the brewery is around the they could hit along the dole. The roof is hoping it could lead to the brewery Hank Aaron solid going off their back at county stadium back in the day. Yeah. So number one, which is more important to Tom record signing. Harper are remodeling the ballpark in the neighborhood and everything around it. Number two should tamra could sell the naming rights of Wrigley field. Could be five million a year could be ten million a year. Who knows right? Yes. Or no. And number three. Let's just distill this down. All right. Number three. Should Tom Ricketts sell the cubs.

"NFL? They'll favorite seemed to be without a doubt the team that won the World Series two years ago a team that has all this young talent. Team. They added Cole hamels has John Lester has Joe man at the helm added. Daniel murphy. The cubs flat out choked down a stretch take choked. The division way. They lost the game one sixty three to a better. Milwaukee Brewers team. I told you guys that Milwaukee I would've liked him against either one of these stamps. But they own the cuts down the stretch day own the Wrigley field. And when you're net winner take all game cubs. Couldn't get the big hit. Both teams had chances saying Colorado ends up pointing with that backup catcher the twenty fifth, man. That's put on the roster gets a base it up the middle. Scotto bird comes in and gets a one to three against a harder to cover order. And now, the Rockies will be advancing. Anthony LDS it'll be the Rockies and a brewers. It'll be the Braves in the LA dodgers. It'll be the Astros any Indians. And we gotta figure out one more series. And I think you guys know what that is. It's the series that is going to be near and dear to many of our hearts. And it won't be the Red Sox taken on either the New York Yankees or the Oakland A's starting Friday night at Fenway park and think about how much fun it would be if we are sitting here when we're doing the overnight show, Mr. fliegelman Thursday and Friday and not only do we have all the wrinkles football Friday show on FOX running around the league Jetson Broncos giants and Panthers. But Mike I would like to have the starter of starters, which is a Red Sox. I'm getting even more head of myself thinking about what the following Thursday night could be like with Yankees Red Sox game five and giants eagles on at the same time. And what I want. Jumping the gun quite a bit. But yeah, this Friday if the Yankee if you're previewing, I mean, we haven't seen a Yankees Red Sox postseason series in fourteen years. We all know what happened. It's the one our generation at least remembers more than any other and to have that with those two teams the rivalry renewed in the postseason. I mean that would just be incredible. And that's coming from somebody who despises bowl teams in one team really even a little bit more, Mike, no secret. And that's fine entitled to that opinion and fatal of the Red Sox either. Because who does no I mean, it's amazing with the Red Sox in the cubs. They win the championship. And it's like he just sick of them. So I said that before when they get that one. They broke their curse. But all right. That's enough. Get out of here now. No because the entitlements off the charts the cockiness is off the charts. And I like to see new blood when it doesn't evolve, of course, my team and I'm excited to see Colorado and a young talent optics said it to see Milwaukee, I'll tell you who's not excited the executives over FOX because the cubs are ratings draw. I dunno of Colorado walkie is going to be a serious. They want to move the needle and Mike. My goodness. They need the Braves out, and they need the dodgers NCIS in absolute worst as good as the dodgers are. And you have a big market the one team that the TV exact probably wanted. You have three of these four teams are advancing when they got it to Monday afternoon. The one team that they wanted more than any other to advance was a team that just lost two straight home games with no offensive production. Either game. And you look at you know, you were talking to have that have bed that is for the cubs. Murphy bias Bryant Schwartz Sobers Rizzo. All these guys that's still one team that TV executive. We're praying got through even more than the dodgers. You want the cubs in their hate seven seven hundred thirty seven sixty six sixty six now, we know the cubs will be going home and it will be the American League wildcard game. And a lot of decisions now for Aaron Boone as far as bullpen management when to potentially Paul Severino. Do you remove and do and Sanchez for defense these games that make or break you as a manager? Can learn a lot more about airborne later on tonight. Let's say to Inwood Jimmy Johns is Jimmy you're on the fat. Hey JJ. How you doing? I love the work. You do on the fan friend in Amina friend of mine have a debate going on. And that is why don't more team start their relievers. And kind of worked away from the back end forward today. Good pitches. All you're going to see more and more Jimmy. But I think you need to have a certain personnel grouping. You need to have a bullpen like the Yankees you need to have a bullpen like the Oakland A's and even Tampa for that matter or you gotta have a rotation depending. Right. Like you're not going to do a bullpen game. If let's say, I don't know you got John Lester going or Tampa, Tampa doesn't mess with gold with an opener. When Blake Snell is starting. He's one of the best starters in the American League. I didn't get makes more sense when you're dealing with the fourth or fifth starter. And you're trying to throw off a teams rhythm and the element. And all that comes with it all could it makes sense because their starting pitching, isn't that good? And they know the strength of the team is their poll pen. So screw it. That's the way they should handle it. Well, let me ask you another question. If you were the manager of the Yankees. You had personnel. Would you consider maybe figuring with something like that? No. I would not Jamie because I think the Yankees have options within their starting rotation as far as guys being capable of shutting down an opponent. See I don't think Oakland has a starting pitcher that I'd feel all too good about giving me a real good start in this game. I think their best hope is going reliever after reliever after reliever. But here's the problem you run into with these bullpen gaps. When you utilize that strategy, you are basically asking every single believer to be on their game. Sasken wa. And that's why the the Yankees you want to get at least five innings. Eddie, severino. If you can good innings, you're not gonna force the issue. You still going to six seven relievers is everybody going to be on their game for that. Tonight said to Jersey City sunny is up next on the fan. What's up Sonny K j? Yes, sunny. How are you? I want to congratulate you because next season you will be doing Monday night football. As far as doing the games. Yeah. I don't know about that study. Listen, I have good representation. I can tell you that. I can maybe give you a good poi- by play call every now and again, but that'd be so disrespectful. First of all to any of the top notch play by play guys that have put the time give you got Bob was choosing. If he did Monday night football. Who does the jets would be amazing? Bob is fantastic. Bob does good work. That is a guy who would deserve that sort of bump. Now, I know some people down on the broadcast. They weren't fans of the broadcast. I still need to hear a lot more of them. I'm kind of like the idea. I don't love them. I don't hate them. I need to give them more than four or five weeks to kind of find their groove. But I'll tell you this sunny, I do miss. Mike tirico doing games. And I know we got a raw deal, but I like Shaun McDonald last year don't Monday night football. I thought it was terrific. You're right. All right. Thank you. John. Listen sonny's trying to put me in the Monday night football. If I mean, listen. Usually say anything's possible. That is one of those situations where yeah, you can definitely go the other way and have it at bet. There's plenty of guys just from 'cuse alone who deserve that. I love you deserve that more than you a guy. Let's check in again in two thousand dollars professional sports before in his life. Negga have on the grand stage of Monday night med foul able to pull that off. I'd have a damn good agent. That's a bigger jump than the guys who go from retiring from the playing field to GM broadcast booth and coach all that. Yes. It would be venturous though. I can tell you that very very adventurous. Let's hit the Brooklyn March joins us. What's up, Mark? Yes. Mark. Marco wants Marco twice marked are paying attention. So when you're not ready to go. You're ready to go. This is wild stealth here with this game. And I know some of bellyaching about the fact that game started eight o'clock at night. Hey, guess what? Maybe I missed the memo Colorado is where geographically is in the mountain time zone. Correct. Chicago, illinois. Is where exactly it is in Illinois central time zone. So for those of you on the east coast bellyaching pitching, a moaning that Dame that went and fitter thirteenth dating too long. Here's what I'd say. When did exactly what them the start game. You want to start in a game at five o'clock in the afternoon. Nobody's gonna be watching. You think it's fair for Colorado starting at game at three o'clock in the afternoon, where if I work in Denver what if I wanna go watering hole, maybe have an ice cold beverage and Raj Mike, Colorado Rockies playoff game. You're gonna make me now watch the game at three o'clock in the afternoon. Look you're going to do that enough in the postseason. Anyway, there are plenty of day games in the ploughs this day game on Thursday. They're going to be day games on Friday is a day game, Saturday, Sunday, pun, pun pun of baseball. Stand on games, eight o'clock tonight. It's not nine o'clock at night. It's only fair one seventeen here on this Wednesday JJ after dark, John jastremski company. Right here on the fan. Eight seven seven thirty seven sixty six sixty six I will give you my pick for the Yankees. And the as coming up at all. And I do wanna get to the comments that Pat Shurmur made Mike show earlier in the day because they were much needed. They were refreshing. And you hope it's a sign of things to come as the giants.

And while he wasn't maybe a sharp as he'd like to be thinking mentioned that after the game. In his past eight starts, this is what you want to see from guy who's battle-tested in the postseason as the cubs move forward. Lester is six and one with a one point seven one ERA in his past eight starts. And so whether you grind it out or whether it's a ten strikeout game. Like, max Scherzer or Jacob degrom.

Veteran Cole Hamels a worthwhile risk for Chicago Cubs' rotation
"The good thing for the cubs is that they have a three, game lead the Rizzo hadn't been hitting this year until recently Bryant hasn't been playing their pitching staff other than John, Lester, hasn't been helping them out much and they still have, a three game lead in the division yes it's all been working in that sense, they're in a comfortable spot because the National. League has, really outside of the dodgers has not really, put any front runners out there so the cubs, are in a good, spot in that regard. But I still maintain despite this nice win today if you're a cubs fan I would be leery about feeling confident going into the playoffs with the roster. As it's currently constructed, all the more reason you need to add some depth to this pitching staff but I'll be honest because again. We're going to be kind of just tip toeing around it until we get official. Confirmation, of Cole hamels coming to the cubs even if they land Cole hamels I'm not sure that he's going to be he's a nice Name that's the thing if you're a sports fan. But, you don't follow baseball all that closely. And a day in day out basis you know Cole hamels Cole hamels is because of the World Series heroic steady provided for the. Philadelphia Phillies but he has not been that Cole hamels and. At least four years and he really hasn't been. A you know a good, pitcher in two years his last five stars he's got a ten Twenty-three ERA and it's funny because, usually when there's a possibility of a deal getting done managers usually don't talk, about a guy they'll, talk about, a guy that maybe pitched against them that day they'll talk about a guy that might be pitching the next day against them but Joe Matt was asked about. Cole hamels today and gave an opinion you've. Been pretty good I've not liked him. For a long time Put some really big games against teams that I've. Been involved with and has done really well He's a he's a great competitor Good stuff but he's just he competes and he. Knows what he's doing out there so I'd have to rank them as a. Pretty, pretty, competent major league pitcher now Jeff you're Mr., analytics and I'm the old man. But we hear a lot people you'll hear it, if in fact.

"john lester" Discussed on WEEI
"Loss of john lester they waited a year they bring in david price and what they do they bring in a guy that is the polar opposite of john lester they give him the money that they should have given a john lesser to begin with they bring in a guy that can't handle the media can't handle the attention can't handle the heat can't handle the pressure of the big game situations here in boston they give up a guy in leicester that embraced all of those situations and thrived in this media market and thrived with the attention on him and was better when the games mattered more so they overcompensate because they screw up and now we're stuck with the results in in the meantime you look over to your left and you see what john lester continues to do at thirty four years old with the cubs i'm telling you he's going to go down in history as the single greatest free agent signing and the history that franchise and as we know that's a franchise it's over one hundred years old and john lester is going to be that guy and it's ironic that the red sox sort of had this decree where they wouldn't sign a pitcher north of thirty and they had all these analytical reasons why and what they do they went ahead and they signed a guy that was just about to turn thirty in in price and they should have given the money to leicester we all know that now and it's unfortunate because you're stuck with price we're all stuck with price and we've spent dozens and dozens and dozens if not hundreds of hours here on late night on red sox review discussing the same tired conversation with david price and it's unfortunate because it's never about the baseball with david price we're all still trying to figure out what this team can do with david price can do to correct what's gone wrong with him but i don't think that there is an answer to that question i don't think anything short of david price getting the hell out of town is going to make him a winner here it's just not going to happen he's dug a hole that's too deep for him to come back from even john lackey he had the the privilege i think the best case scenario for john lackey was getting a year out of here having the surgery having the tommy john and getting out of the spotlight here after his abysmal first year in boston you know he has the tommy john after the failure of the season he's out of sight out of mind and when he came back you know he wasn't the john lanky that we expected them to be but he was so much better than the guy that we saw here when he first got the boston and ultimately he became this workhorse pitcher for the red sox and the fans ultimately embraced him was he worth the contract probably not but he was able to bounce back he was able to become somebody that red sox fans wanted to hold onto and we're pissed off when the red sox ultimately let them walk you know you're never gonna get that i don't think from david price i don't think he's going to be able to come back from this i don't think david price is ever going to have a rebound here in boston and it's a shame because when you look at his numbers at the end of the season he's going to have a pretty good win win loss total his era is going to be under four he's gonna have plenty of strikeouts but it's gonna be a situation where we remember him for the failures and not the success is because again you know as shaughnessy points out in his article in the.
