  • Manager Clint Hurdle cited Bell's performance in the Brewers series as the reason he wanted him to have a day off. He wanted to sit him Sunday after going 0-6 with a walk in 13 innings on Saturday, but Josh didn't want to stay out against the division rival.
  • It's not yet official, but Craig Kimbrel is expected to sign with the Cubs for 3 years and ~$45 million. Dallas Kuechel remains unclaimed.
  • Try to work "No Scrambling Caveat" into all the arguments about foul ball etiquette from now on. For our sake.
  • The Pirates answered mightily in Game 2 of the series. Marte and the Pirates pounded Gausman for 7 runs while Musgrove practically shut down the Braves' bats through 8 innings.
