All-star game is a joke, and being linked to home field advantage in the world series is ridiculous. Can't say I won't tune in to check out Brewers players though.

You obviously have a great grasp on how Maddon thinks.

Just reading what he said in the Trib. Frustrated being in 3rd or 4th and the big signing of Darvish so far a waste!

Pretty flattering when 7 over by the end of May is considered “season’s frustrations.”

You reading half quotes like this unfortunate Pirates broadcaster?

He's just doing what a good manager does, protecting his player ... Rizzo obviously altered his path to compromise the catcher ... manager is out there deflecting  ...

The ironic thing is that Maddon is blaming the collision on the catcher for having poor technique! Even though he was clearly in front of the plate and outside the batter's box. Rizzo was not near the plate when he hit him. Maddon either didn't see the replay or this season's frustrations are starting to boil over !

I understand.  By Chicago standards, that was a 'clean breakup' of a double play.  At least Rizzo didn't pull a gun and shoot him.

I agree that the rules are stupid... but Rizzo did break the new rules, and the umps AND the replay booth umps all blew the call... that's is a little unsettling, as it was a clear violation

I miss old baseball more than old football. Sad when a clean break up of a double play on a catcher is illegal.

Rizzo went 2 for 3 with a HR and two walks.

I wish I got the Cubs/Pirates game tonight.  Outta be some fireworks during Rizzo's first at bat after that blatant interference non-call yesterday at home plate.  They couldn't plunk him in his next at bat because it would have loaded up the bases.  Then he rubs some salt in the would by driving in both base runners.  You know they're going to get him tonight.  Should be fun to watch.
