I imagine some of the folks at the top of our standings are torn: root for the Cubs, or root against Arrieta getting another shot at racking up points?
I don't have these problems, since Drone Boy's performance last night still won't have dragged me out of last place, but as a human being I'm glad the Cubs didn't get routed at home.
Lester 9 (left two on)
Standings after the jump!
For much to change, the series probably has to go the full 7 and Ben Zobrist and Anthony Rizzo have to absolutely murder Cleveland pitching; some of that could happen, but all of it probably won't. In any case, 'til Tuesday:
143 Bingham 2
130s Stempel, Johnson 1, Reid Love, the Yuhans
120s MacEachern, Drake
100s Bauer 1
80s Ekard, Shotwell
70s Bauer 2
60s Bunting 2
Yuhan 2 and myself will not appear in future updates; he has no picks left and we've seen the last of Drone Boy, I reckon.
Next stop: Cleveland, Arrieta vs. Tomlin at 8 ET on Tuesday. See you then! And if you've got nothing else to watch tonight, you could clap an eye on my math just in case-ies.
