Chicago Cubs Biggest MLB Trouble in Three Years and Other Cubs Goals

I hate that ‘House of the Dragon’ and ‘Rings of Power’ are airing at the same time. They’re so different that it’s not like there’s any conflict/comparison when watching them, but I’m not super into fantasy stuff, so I’ll spread them out to be evenly distributed throughout the year. And since both of them are getting a lot of views, it’s not like you can wait a few months just to watch and avoid the actual spoilers.

  • The Nature of an Individual Game of Baseball – Its Huge luck dragons And all – is that you really don’t have high odds favorites in any game. There is no Alabama opposite Upper East Mississippi Valley State Agro Tech (With all due respect to Canary of UEMVSAT) are preferred, sure, but the rows – if you call it a . come from Sports betting Perspectives – are usually rather minor.
  • …and this is how you wind up with a random game like last night, with the Chicago Cubs pulling off the biggest upsets in MLB in three years:
  • To be sure, betting lines move around for a variety of reasons that aren’t a perfect distillation of “market predictions”, but they’re usually pretty close to expectation. And that’s true for last night, considering you had a weak Cubs team playing against Jacob deGrom on the road. This is about as big an underdog situation as you can get in baseball. Just about anyone would have expected that thing to go away, which is why I enjoy celebrating it so much.
  • Adrian Sampson’s brilliant outing (6.0 IP, 0 ER, 2H, 4BB, 3K) made for a better game score than DeGrom’s (66 to 62), so we can say, at least on that metric. By the way, Sampson actually left DeGrom behind last night — another thing no one might have seen coming.
  • The outing dropped Sampson’s season ERA to 3.48 (about 14% better than the league average) and his FIP to 3.84, which is now about 3% better than the league average. He’s generally doing this by not walking anyone and staying away from the barrel—his 6.5% barrel rate is the 37th best among all pitchers with at least 80 innings in baseball. His average exhaust velocity is 22nd best. Guys it’s just too much trouble to square it. I’ve become more sensitive in recent years to the risks associated with contact-managers (that is, they can leave a lot of runs in a hurry if they’re a little off on a given day, or if they get some unlucky bounces). are) ), but Sampson keeps doing just that.
  • More about Sampson’s success:
  • Seiya Suzuki had just one hit and three strikeouts last night (one of which was as close as we saw him actually arguing on a call, and it got David Ross in some hot water with Laz Diaz) ). But down the stretch his numbers are still outstanding:
  • Javier Assad getting TOPS call-up card:
