#Cubs and Hammel face Cards

Jason Hammel gets the start on Saturday when the Cubs face the Cardinals in the second game of their three-game series at Wrigley Field. The Cubs secured home field advantage through the NLDS and NLCS late Friday when the Nationals lost to the Pirates. Hammel is 10-1 with a 1.84 ERA at Wrigley Field. First pitch is scheduled for 12:05 p.m. CT. Here’s Saturday’s lineup:

Fowler CF

Bryant 3B

Rizzo 1B

Zobrist 2B

Russell SS

Heyward RF

Soler LF

Contreras C

Hammel P


Did anyone know Steve Clevenger was a racist and bigot when with our Cubs? He`s, no doubt, a Trump supporter. They both have much in common.

Today`s first inning tells you all you need to know why Hammel will not be part of the Cubs` starting rotation in the postseason.

Okay, we lost this one. Agree about Hammel. Anybody worried about Rondon?

Aloha Bruce and jhosk, that was a good ole butt-kicking. Kudos to the Cardinals for not laying down. Tomorrow the team needs to support Lester and take this and the regular series. Too bad with Hammel, he can be added to the bp like Lincecum was in the Giants last WS. I hope Rondon gets a couple more outtings to work through this. You both take care now. Mahalo!

That`s a yes, re: Rondon. Do not see a lot of movement on his pitches. He serves up far too many “cookies.” Major league hitters know what to do with those.

Aloha Folks- I am sure by now many of you have heard the news about Jose Fernandez of the Marlins. I could not believe the headlines and thought in this day and age of “no-cyber-security,” public servants having non-secured computers hacked as well as private entities that this was not real…Then to find out that it is. I loved watching his passion and joy for this game. He will sorely be missed. Prayers go out to his girlfriend and child on the way and his family. RIP Fernandez-san. Mahalo.
