Game Thread 9/2: Cubs at Phillies

Save us, Aaron Nola.

MLB: Chicago Cubs at Philadelphia Phillies Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

What is this lineup? I can’t talk or think about anything but that, so why don’t you take a look at it.

Look at where everyone is. Look at where everyone is! In the lineup itself, at each position, it’s just... it’s really incredible.

That Gabe Kapler can still surprise us with his lineups this late in the season is a thing of beauty. Truly. A bunch of teams have used more unique lineups than Kapler has, but I contend that none of them have done it with so much flair and deep question marks as Kapler.

Go Aaron Nola. Discuss the game in the comments below.
