a win. a road win. tyler chatwood & kris bryant again. have to get the bullpen healthy. have to ride our best players. the best 9. have to get over the road mental block. its abt survival. like actual man vs wild type stuff. taking it one step at a time. 162 & Im not leaving
Jon Lester on Chatwood: "He's kind of pigeon holed in an in between spot....we have to fig out how to use him. It's such an electric arm, such electric stuff, you want to get him in the game somehow. It's just figuring out how."
So frustrated we’ve
reached mid-August, and Tyler Chatwood has STILL not
even been tried as a high leverage short reliever. His stuff screams for it. His confidence this year shows he could handle it. The options are so limited. I’ve been calling for it since the spring.
Huge escape by Chatwood. Gets help in LF where Happ is about 75% better than he ever has been.
Chatwood gets a K so runners cant advance then a slow roller. He needs to play a part down the stretch despite some wonky control issues, at times. Nowhere near last yr
Let Chatwood be your right handed version of Josh Hader. Just without the HRs and racism.
#Cubs have 5 saves this month. By 5 different pitchers
The losing streak ends at 4. Cubs win! They blank Pittsburgh 2-0. Jon Lester with 6+ innings for the win. Tyler Chatwood with the hold Rowan Wick with his first career save. Kris Bryant hit his 25th home run.
2-0 the final. Lester with 6 shutout innings, Chatwood and Wick follow to shut down the Pirates. Kris Bryant with the game-winning HR. https://t.co/YPiwhiLi3s
I had to leave when 2 runners were on with no outs and Chatwood came in. Was shocked to see the final score. https://t.co/fVFl8FjKbT
I didn't mean it in a negative way about Chatwood. I meant that I couldn't see the game anymore with 2 on and 0 out, and was shocked to see the Cubs held the score for the final 3 innings. Chatwood has been very good the last couple months. https://t.co/tJyYFFB1Fa
Remember last year when many #Cubs fans wanted Chatwood DFAd? Now many of those same fans love him. More proof that sports fans are very fickle in a very much “What have you done for me lately” world
Rowan Wick is good. Jon Lester never gave up. And thank goodness we found Tyler Chatwood sitting in the bullpen and decided to use him.
lol, I loved the Chatwood move. He's been a stud.
I was shaking the rest of the game, though.
It’s crazy how much Cubs fans like Chatwood this year opposed to last, but he should be playing a lot more
Lester foi muito bem... apesar do número excessivo de walks o QS foi sólido. Será que nosso ace voltou? Pelo famigerado bullpen Chatwood e Wick deram conta do recado dessa vez. Um pouco de vergonha na cara é refresco nestes tempos difíceis. Fly The W! https://t.co/wjTbqgDv2U
Chatwood now has 2 saves, 2 holds, and 1 blown save.
In innings 7-9 this year, entering today, Chatwood had an ERA of 5.00 of 18 IP.
Tyler Chatwood is the most reliable Cubs bullpen arm. Have fun with that Cubs Twitter
With three ground ball outs, Rowan Wick finishes off the SAVE as the #Cubs bullpen — big contribution from Tyler Chatwood — combines with Jon Lester on a four-hitter. 2-0 final score. #FlyTheW
I've actually thought myself in some of these games, 'Put Chatwood in', and I have no idea who I am anymore.
I say let Wick and Chatwood be our 8th and 9th innning guys until they prove otherwise. Stuff is certainly there for both. Perhaps Wick is too young to be intimidated, and Chatty is up to the task of being an essential cog.

Morrow sucks but Heyward just made a huge catch in centerfield today has over 15 homeruns this year, chatwood just threw 2 huge innings for us no runs, darvish had another 10 strikeout game Thursday night for us and kimbrel has 7 saves so far and he is on the IL
Wick, Chatwood, and Ryan. 3 best relievers. Please continue to use them Joe. Nice game guys.
Tyler Chatwood for President
Dare I say, “Tyler Chatwood, savior of the Chicago Cubs!”
I feel good that Maddon finally used Chatwood in high leverage relief.
