Soooo….not exactly a great game last night for the Chicago Cubs.
Down by a lot of runs and with an already taxed bullpen, Joe Maddon did what a lot of managers in MLB do: he decided to utilize position players to pitch.
Anthony Rizzo is one of those position players. And he REALLY wanted to make his debut as a major league pitcher, albeit as mop up in a awful game. So when the opportunity finally presented itself, he thought he was the guy. NOT SO FAST:

The look on his face! 😆
Joe Maddon certainly knows how to keep his guys loose, even in a crappy situation. The Cubs still have the best record in the National League, for reference. — [eric]
