Wednesday’s A.M. Hot Clicks: Malory Henao; Cubs advance to NLCS
Cubs One Step Closer
The Cubs completed a wild comeback over the Giants to advance to the NLCS on Tuesday night. Chicago second baseman Javy Baez was the star of the game, making a ridiculous diving stop on a play that replay ruined, cementing himself as MLB’s best tag artist, and even refusing to lose a piece of gum. Giants manager Bruce Bochy will probably go down as the goat of the game for his decision to pull starter Matt Moore for the ninth inning. Moore had been dealing, and like it seemingly always does, the Giants bullpen blew the game. The Cubs will have to wait one more night to find out their opponent, as the Dodgers pushed their series with the Nationals to a decisive Game 5. (And in the AL, here’s SI’s preview of Blue Jays vs. Indians.)
What Can’t Tim Tebow Do?
Well, he can’t play quarterback, but he can (and will) pray for you and help you breathe if you suffer a seizure.
Bench Dak Prescott
Not because of his play on the field, which is outstanding. Bench him because he gave up Kanye West tickets to watch a boring Thursday Night Football game. You can’t trust someone with that kind of decision making.
