Yesterday's Results

Cubs 2, Brewers 1

For the second time in five days, the Brewers went to extra innings, and they couldn't take advantage of their opportunities. It wasted another great performance from Jimmy Nelson.

Other Notes

  • Free Agent Compensation Must Die
    Greg Simons, The Hardball Times
    The free agent compensation system has hurt several players, who couldn't get contracts because of the compensation attached to them. With the new CBA coming up, it will be a topic of conversation.
  • The Cause of Lengthening MLB Games
    Dave Cameron, FanGraphs

    Game times are up again in 2016, and the reasons for it go beyond needing to tighten up the pace of play protocols.
