    Chapman fires a ball past bullpen catcher that causes delay in game. That shouldn't shock anyone. Wrigley is not a good pen for him.

    So why send your worst hitter on the bench to pinch hit in that situation?
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    Dusty obviously wanted a hit and run there. Thought Valdez was the guy to make contact.

    Cozart takes the free pass as well.

    Dude can't find the strike zone. Valdez either didnt give himself a chance or Dusty wouldn't let him.

    I like Hanigan in that role, but I understand not wanting to burn your backup catcher.

    Drew looks like a completely different guy the past 2 days. Not just the hits, but the swing too. 8-4 good guys.

    Stubbs promptly swipes 2nd.

    Maybe because he's batting in front of Votto? I have no idea, but it's a theory. I will applaude Dusty for this one (I don't do that oftern, or at all).

    Gotta wonder if it's the fastballs he's seeing in front of Votto.

    Heck of a catch by Byrd. Robbed Joey.

    That AB he saw sliders and a cutter.
    Opinions are like belly buttons. Everybody has one, and they don't want someone else's shoved into their face.
