so i guess it's not the managers or hitting coaches fault that the cubs can't hit?
Sure Ross should've pulled Hendricks before the 7th. but they only scored one run on happs home run. fans called for madden and his hitting coaches jobs the past couple years.
all year long the cubs have had inconsistent hitting. if you take away their 13-3 start, they would be under .500 and may not make the post season.
we'll see what happens tomorrow but i'm not optimistic, even with cy young candidate yu darvish pitching. we'll see what rossy does with the lineup tomorrow. KB needs to go to 5th. contreras will be DH and caratini catches darvish. maybe put KB in LF and bote at 3rd. and nico at 2nd.
but something needs to be done to shake things up.
we'll see what happens.

It's not just the Cubs. Very few managers shake things up any more. The front office won't let them. They want their process and their analytics followed to a tee. So don't be surprised if you see the same old lineup.

Talk the Cleveland Indians fans, the Chicago Cubs World Series drought would have turned 112 years. But the Cleveland Indians fans are sick and tired of saying "COULDA, SHOULDA, WOULDA" or tired of coming this close in their 25-years of playoff experience. In 2016, the Cleveland Indians fans saying "These North Side Windy City better than we are. We are not good enough yet. We shouldn't be thinking about beating these Wrigleyville Windy City Cubs; we shouldn't be talking about this because the Indians aren't good enough. And you fellas shouldn't write about us being a World Series or playoff team and all that is a no no---that's disgusting. We ain't good enough to beat those guys and it has proven out there today. It's that simple. We're not good enough yet. This season is over; we're close, and close doesn't mean a thing. And you can put that on TV, internet, radio, or smart apps for us. We are tired of coming this close".

You mean one world series in a 100 years isn't enough for you?
