If anyone is going to game 1, I'll be there with my son. Section 525. Let me know.

I saw some speculation on Twitter that the Cubs might add a 12th pitcher for the NLCS - because you can never have too many innings where you use 4-6 pitchers (never mind that the last three games I watched saw teams blow late leads using 4, 5, and then 6 pitchers in a single inning; in the long run, using that many pitchers is sure to start working!). That seems unnecessary and/or nuts to me, but what do others think? I see no reason to change the roster. The only reason I could see not doing so is if they're concerned that Hendricks is hurt, I could see maybe trying to add Hammel as an emergency starter. But all indications I've heard are that Hendricks should be fine.

Answering from the other thread. I think I'd be surprised if they go to another pitcher. I guess TLS and Coghlan weren't really needed, so you could theoretically drop one of them, especially if you aren't starting Heyward at least 2 games (and as many as 4 if he sits against Hill too). I was at Wrigley last year when Szczur took Kershaw deep, but I wouldn't think that would be a reason to swap him and Almora.

Baez overload, but this is a great read on the Cubs scouting/developing of him.

We've had revenge for 1989, time for revenge for 2008.

Chicago Cubs waiting too see if Miguel Montero's back pain will allow him to play in NLCS. This may help add 12th pitcher

Hendricks G2, Arrieta G3, Lackey G4 official.

The Dodgers lineup is so loaded with lefties, both Maddon and Cubs GM Jed Hoyer admitted rookie southpaw Rob Zastryzny could crack the 25-man NLCS roster.


I guess there's the likely guy if Montero is out.

Eloy Jimenez just crushed a ball into LF here in Mesa. I'm glad - the Cubs really needed something to go right for them this year.

.@Cubs prospect Eloy Jimenez hit a ball 112.7 MPH & 119.4 MPH yesterday in the AFL. Only 4 balls hit harder than 119.4 MPH in @mlb last year

Roster set: Montero is in, but Zazstrzny is added, La Stella is out.
