gged. And then..."MESA , Arizona — I’ve written a lot on this site about the pace of play in Major League Baseball and the Commissioner’s office has made it an important part of their message.The pace of the first two innings of the Cubs’ 5-4 loss to the Diamondbacks was awful. There were, combined: five hits, six walks, two errors and nine runs scored, and those two innings took 90 minutes. But then, the rest of the game flew by, seven innings in a hour and 57 minutes. At one point, 14 straight Cubs were retired, before the sub Cubs got a pair of runners on base in the ninth before Jacob Hannemann and Ryan Court struck out to end it (and a couple of the called strikes, frankly, weren’t, but I think plate umpire Rob Drake had had enough).Now, let’s get back to the beginning of this game. Jason Heyward, in the original starting lineup, was scratched:There’s no further information available about J-Hey.The rest of the important stuff about the first two innings involved Yu Darvish. Darvish was throwing hard, hitting 95 consistently and 96 occasionally with his fastball. His command was a little off, and he issued four walks. After the fourth walk, with one out in the second inning, he was removed in favor of minor leaguer Scott Effross. Effross allowed a single and a run-scoring sacrifice fly, and then he should have been out of the inning, but Kris Bryant made a throwing error that allowed a run to score, and then Wilmer Flores doubled in the runs that would prove to be the eventual winning tallies.This was after the Cubs pushed across four runs in the first inning off Zack Godley, who didn’t even finish the inning. Albert Almora Jr. led off with a double Jose Iglesias Jersey , and after a walk Anthony Rizzo singled him in. Two batters later a D-backs error resulted in two more Cubs runs, and Addison Russell drove in the fourth run. Russell, incidentally, was cheered when he was introduced, with just a couple of scattered boos.But the story of the game was Darvish. Here’s video I shot of his bullpen warmup.And here’s the last out of the first inning, a pitch by Darvish that was hit a long way, but run down by Almora:One thing Darvish will definitely have to work on is the pitch clock. Had it been set for violations, he’d have committed several. He was working very slowly. But his velocity was good, and:And, he’s been using more English, around his teammates and the media:Showing a sense of humor, too. I cannot tell you how much I am rooting for Yu Darvish to have a big comeback season in 2019. I thought that even with all the walks, he threw pretty well, and, most importantly:The rest of this game was pretty dull. After the second inning, miscellaneous Cubs relievers allowed just two hits and three walks. Here’s a nice catch made by Johnny Field on a sinking liner by Yasmany Tomas in the seventh inning:And even though this game ran 3:27 and the Cubs (or at least a bunch of their non-roster guys) lost, it was a pleasant afternoon at Sloan Park, with temperatures reaching the low 70s. Attendance was 10,666, bringing the season total for three dates to 35,371, an average of 11,790 per date.We have yet to see several relievers who will definitely be in the Opening Day bullpen Denny McLain Jersey , including Carl Edwards Jr., Pedro Strop, Steve Cishek and Brad Brach. Perhaps Wednesday, when the Cubs will travel to Surprise to face the Rangers. Cole Hamels will face his former team in his first start of the spring, and Texas will go with Edinson Volquez. Game time Wednesday is 2:05 p.m. CT. No TV Wednesday, audio-only on A game in Springfield, and other stories"A wildly popular Cubs-centric look at baseball’s past. Here’s a handy Cubs timeline, to help you follow along as we review select scenes from the rich tapestry of Chicago Cubs and Major League Baseball history. The embedded links often point to articles that I’ve chosen as illustrative of the scenes, from The Society for American Baseball Research, reproductions of period newspapers, images, and other such material. It’s all lightly unpacked and tidied up, just for you.You might learn something, but mostly, it’s for fun!Today in baseball history:1920 - The Chicago Cubs give his unconditional release to Lee Magee after having learned from him a week ago that he has been betting against his team. Magee will sue the Cubs for his salary of $4,500, charging that his livelihood as a ballplayer was destroyed through the sudden canceling of his contract. The Cubs will ask for a dismissal of the suit, saying that “previous to the making of the contract the plaintiff was guilty of betting against the team of which he was a member, and sought to win bets by intentional bad playing to defeat said team.” (3)1923 - Christy Mathewson and Giants attorney Emil Fuchs put together a syndicate that buys the Boston Braves for $300,000, The future Hall-of-Fame right-hander become the principal owner and team president, but due to his deteriorating health, he was no more than a figurehead , turning over the presidency to Fuchs at the season. (1)1943 - Chicago Cubs owner Philip Wrigley and Brooklyn Dodgers executive Branch Rickey draw up charter for the “All-American Girls Softball League”, which will eventually become the All-American Girls Professional Baseball League (AAGPBL). The league, originally conceived in the belief that the major leagues would suspend play because of World War II, will operate from 1943 to 1954 around the Chicago area. When the league changes its name and switches to hardball, the pitching distance is 40 feet and bases 68 feet apart. After struggling through poor attendance in its early seasons, the league will draw over one million fans in 1948. (2)1953 - August A. Busch, seeing the purchase as a marketing tool, convinces the Board of Directors of Anheuser-Busch to buy the Cardinals from Fred Saigh for $3.75 million. The beer baron convinces the former owner, who has been convicted of tax evasion, as a matter of civic pride to take less money than the offer from an ownership group that would move the Redbirds to Houston. (1)1953 - The U.S. Court of Appeals rules that organized baseball is a sport and not a business, affirming the 25-year-old Supreme Court ruling. This effectively dismisses the antitrust suits of Jack Corbett and former Brooklyn Dodgers minor leaguer Walter Kowalski. The $300,000 suit of Corbett, the owner of the El Paso Texans, is based on his belief that he lost money when Major League Baseball prohibited him from signing several players suspended for participation in the Mexican League. Kowalski’s $150,000 suit is based on the general principles of the antitrust and restraint-of-trade laws. Their lawyer in these cases is Frederic Johnson, who also represents player Danny Gardella in his suit against Major League Baseball. (3)1963 - The Cubs officially put an end to their radical approach in using multiple field bosses during the season when they hire Bob Kennedy as their only manager. With the “College of Coaches” system disbanded, the club will post an 82-80 record under their lone skipper. (1)1992 - After Hall-of-Famer Homer Simpson and his co-workers qualify the Springfield Nuclear Power Plant’s softball team for the league final, Mr. Montgomery Burns, the owner of the facility, hires nine professional MLB players, to win a $1 million bet with his Shelbyville rival. Although he hits nine home runs, the southpaw-swinging Darryl Strawberry, the only major leaguer to actually participate in the game Kirk Gibson Jersey , after Roger Clemens, Wade Boggs, Ken Griffey Jr., Steve Sax, Ozzie Smith, Jose Canseco, Don Mattingly, and Mike Scioscia are all sidelined after being involved in a series of bizarre pregame accidents, will be replaced by Homer in the last inning, because Burns wants a righty to face the opponent’s left-hander. (1)2015 - Major League Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred announces a series of measures to quicken the pace of the game. Chief among them are that a batter will need to keep at least one foot in the batter’s box at all times during an at-bat, and that the intermission between half innings will be strictly timed. Pitchers will be required to complete their warm-up pitches before there are only 30 seconds left before resumption of play, or risk forfeiting any unmade pitches. More dramatic changes, such as adding a pitch clock, are not introduced at this time. Violation of the new guidelines will result in fines, and not in game-related penalties. (3)Cubs birthdays: Frankie Gustine, Jesus Figueroa, Ryan Sweeney, Julio Borbon, Spencer Patton. Also notable: Sam Rice (HoF).Sources:(1) — The National Pastime.(2) — Today in Baseball History.(3) — Baseball Reference.(4) — Society for American Baseball Research.(5) — Baseball Hall of Fame.Thanks for reading. #Cubsnews
