So…I’m happy

OK, so the Chicago Cubs are now tied with the St. Louis Cardinals at a game apiece heading back to Wrigley Field and Jake Arrieta Day on Monday.  I figured that this would happen, even if Kyle Hendricks didn’t do as well as I had hoped.  The player of the game pretty much has to be Jorge Soler for getting on base all night long: The game started off on a sour note as Hendricks...

Daily Pitcher Duels: Oct. 10

Here’s a look at a couple National League Game 2 matchups for your viewing pleasure: Kyle Hendricks (CHC) vs. Jaime Garcia (STL) 5:37 p.m. ET, TBS Game 2 of this division series is a bit more of an unheralded matchup, as the Cubs are already three deep into their pitching cache thanks to playing in the Wild Card game, and the Cardinals have battled injuries in what is still...

Maldonado spoils Hendricks' no-hitter, but Brewers still shut out by Cubs

MILWAUKEE -- Kyle Hendricks allowed one hit and struck out eight in six innings, and the Chicago Cubs kept alive their hopes to host to the NL wild card game with a 1-0 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday night.

Preview: Brewers vs. Cubs

Chicago's Kyle Hendricks is hitting his stride at the perfect time and although it has yet to be confirmed by manager Joe Maddon, seems to have locked down a spot in the postseason rotation should the Cubs win next week's wild-card game. It's looking more likely like that winner-take-all game will be taking place in Pittsburgh. Hendricks looks to build on a solid performance and...

Hendricks first Ivy Leaguer in years to produce three wins

The last pitch of Kyle Hendricks’ nine-strikeout appearance on Monday. This past spring, the author published a three–part series in these electronic pages with a view towards examining the amateur origins of baseball’s good players — where “good” was defined by the half-arbitrary threshold of three wins in a given season.

Game 152 Recap: Brewers 4, Cubs 1

Top Play (WPA): Kyle Hendricks, wonderfully profiled by our own Rian Watt, pitched very well against the Brewers Wednesday evening, but not well enough to best baby-faced Zach Davies in the game that will be forever known as The Battle between Two Pitchers Who Look Considerably Younger Than This 23-Year-Old Author. Hendricks cruised through four and […]

Calm Kyle Hendricks No More Volatile Than You’d Expect

On Friday, August 14th, I found myself on Twitter. This happens a lot. It’s not localized to Fridays, honestly, or to Augusts, or to days which fall a fortnight into their respective months. It’s just something I do from time to time. And on this particular Friday, I spotted on my timeline the following tweet: I am curious if Kyle Hendricks has more volatility in his outings...

Chicago Cubs: Kyle Hendricks to make debut

With the recent trade that sent Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel to the Oakland Athletics, two holes have opened up in the Chicago Cubs’ starting rotation. Carlos Villanueva made a spot-start on Saturday, which would have been Samardzija’s turn in the rotation, but he was unlikely going to be a long term fit in that role. Every pitcher in the Triple-A rotation was qualified and...
