2018 Senior League Wild Card: Rockies @ Cubs

One or done, the Rockies meet the Cubs tonight in a Wild Card game. I have almost nothing nice to say about the Rockies other than they’re not quite as objectionable as some (looking right at you Dodgers) whereas the Cubbies are lovable losers who are now on the rise in addition to being one of the ancient elders for whom respect is due. Who goes a hundred and eight years between Series Championships? The Cubs do and they have those ivy covered walls to prove it.

Jon Lester (L, 18 – 6, 3.32 ERA) will face Kyle Freeland (L, 17 – 7, 2.85 ERA). Freeland is a product of the Rockies system and was in fact born in Denver, Lester is a mercenary. Last year Lester had a 1.88 ERA in the Playoffs even though he didn’t win any games (he didn’t lose any either). Freeland has no post-Season record. Freeland favors Fastballs and Sliders, Lester likes Fastballs and Cutters.

Tomorrow night Lola, damn Yankees.
