Strop has been really good lately so I'm surprised he's in the game here.

cubs fans are doom and gloom over a single runner reaching with a 3 run lead?! Granted it's now a 2 run lead, but jesus

Pretty funny coming from the doom and gloom with a 15-game division lead camp

Yes I'm very proud of my team having a huge division lead in the worst division in baseball

Also injuries have taken out two of the best three position players on the team and the two best pitchers, both of whom have been pretty bad since coming off the DL

Brother, you do not want to start the discussion of 2017 terribleness, because there's no way of winning.

Looked pretty safe to me in the stands. Crawford's foot was a good 10in off the base.

I'm still gonna be mad about Joe Maddon making terrible managerial decisions or Cubs baserunners getting themselves out in stupid ways.

The Astros are only 54 years into their drought. You're halfway there!

Sorry but you lose drought cred once your team wins it

The Cubs are less than a year into their drought

Our bullpen did a complete 180 from first half to second half. Davis/Edwards suck now and Strop/Rondon/Duensing are great.

The Cubs are 3 outs away with only their excellent closer (who has yet to allow more than 2 runs in any appearance) to protect a 2 run lead, time to panic
