Here’s an open discussion thread for the playoff series going on today, with the Chicago Cubs taking on the Miami Marlins at 2:08 PM, followed by the St Louis Cardinals and San Diego Padres at 7:08 PM. Marlins lead the best-of-three series 1-0 and can advance today, while tonight’s game will decide the Padres/Cardinals series. Use the comment section below for playoff talk, Pittsburgh Pirates comments, or just anything in general going on around the baseball world.
Here’s a short video for you from yesterday, showing Pirates 17-year-old shortstop prospect Javier Rivas. He’s from Venezuela, stands in at 6’3″ and has a chance to be the best player from their very strong 2019-20 international signing class.
