Game 96 Recap: Cubs 6, Brewers 5

For six innings, the Cubs looked like the Brewers and the Brewers looked like the Cubs. Luckily, Will Smith set everything straight in the seventh. Worst Play: While Junior Guerra had some trouble with command in his start — he walked four and gave up five hits across 6.1 innings — he managed to keep the game in hand. Smith…did not. Here’s how his appearance went: Miguel...

Adrian Houser and Pitching Development

When Doug Melvin orchestrated last summer’s blockbuster deal with Houston, the pitching prospect who generated the most buzz was lefty flamethrower Josh Hader, and rightfully so. Hader has since risen to become one of the top left-handed pitching prospects in the game, though his performance has hit a bit of a snag since a promotion to AAA Colorado Springs.

Analyzing a potential Ryan Braun trade

As we approach the trade deadline, rumors swirl.  Some, of course, are more likely to be acted upon than others.  Someone like Rich Hill, for example, is almost certain to be traded because of his contract status (free agent-to-be on a losing team).  Others, though, are more up in the air–and that is the position the Brewers find themselves in with Ryan Braun.

Jonathan Lucroy smashes reporter’s laptop with foul ball

During the eighth inning of the game, when many reporters are working on their game stories, a foul ball careened off the bat of Lucroy.
