A good weekend trip to Colorado for the boys. While the rest of the state was flying higher than the Rocky Mountains, the Cubs were smoking a little themselves. After taking two of three from the Rockies, they have now won 3 of 4 and could be putting together some momentum that could turn into the 10-game stretch needed to shut the critics’ mouths.
We are aware of the weather forecast in Denver and we’ll do an adequate job of keeping you updated on the status of tonight’s game. Here is how we plan on lining up. Game preview: https://t.co/SS6ALszbEF #EverybodyIn
Joe Maddon has been searching for the lineup that will jump start this Cubs’ offense and I think we are looking at just that, folks. This lineup is what will be moving the needle for Cubs fans all summer long. Almora is the only option we have right now to lead off games and the fact that this was the first time Almora/Baez led off a game this season is incredibly frustrating. And oh look… it worked…
@javy23baez is 3-for-3 tonight, a triple shy of the cycle. #Cubs lead 4-3 in the 5th. #JavyInThe2Hole https://t.co/9h0mkCdHev
@albertalmora has three hits tonight. @javy23baez has four. #Cubs lead 9-3 in the 6th! #EverybodyIn
And then any sort of Kyle Schwarber highlight that I can get my hands on will be put in every single blog I write. That is a promise folks.
@kschwarb12 puts the finishing touches on a seven-run 6th. #EverybodyIn https://t.co/bil6EKcS1K
Cubs Win 16-5

The #Cubs today placed Ben Zobrist on the 10-day DL (retroactive to April 18) with back tightness and recalled David Bote from @IowaCubs.
Congratulations to David Bote on his first @MLB hit! #EverybodyIn https://t.co/jqbyLItQPu
Very cool story here. David Bote gets his chance at the show after Ben Zobrist lands on the DL. With his family in attendance, Bote comes up and fulfills his dream by driving one in the gap and ends up with his first major league hit in his home state of Colorado. The shot of his family, and specifically his dad, while they watch David’s first hit is just a classic feel-good baseball story that shows the pageantry of the game. Little stories like this aren’t seen as common in other sports, but you see about 10 of them a season in baseball.
@albertalmora’s got it going on. https://t.co/npwrpRbh7J
Get used to seeing this. Almora might have won a 2018 Gold Glove over the weekend. Yes, I know its April but all you have to do is get on the voters’ radar with a few highlight reel plays in a short span and after that, every time you make a play for the rest of the season people will say, “Wow, Almora is making ANOTHER amazing catch?” Even though you haven’t made one in months.
Cubs Lose 5-2

Kris Bryant was examined upon exiting today’s game and has passed all tests thus far. He has a small laceration above his eye from his sunglasses, but has shown no signs of a concussion. He will continue to be evaluated.
No, Javy. You can’t stay here. https://t.co/mJMyPJocYA
This *is* @albertalmora “taking it easy.” https://t.co/WO7BfsHOZE
@albertalmora has earned himself a day off. https://t.co/KgVedkIle2
I’m telling you, I will get on my knees for Javy and Almora right now. Javy’s bat would melt steal beams and Almora could cover as much as an entire secondary in the NFL. These aren’t me over exaggerating, these are just facts.
A dramatic end to an exciting series. #EverybodyIn https://t.co/fMfLENINps
Cubs Win 9-7
Some good wins this weekend. Like I said before, the Cubs have won 3 of 4 and now have a two game series in Cleveland followed by a four game set with the Brewers in Wrigley. We could make a big splash or poop the bed. Only one way to find out.
PS: One last Javy dick-stroke.
Heck of a week, Javy. #EverybodyIn
