Re: Jason Heyward to CUBS!!!

I'd go with '84, but a lot of that ties into that being my senior year. This. Thirty-nine years with NO playoff appearances. The team was fun, the lineup was full of bats, Sutcliffe was the real deal and the rest of the pitching staff was pretty good. I'll never forget watching the news later in th...

Re: Jason Heyward to CUBS!!!

I will never forget Heyward's first at bat versus the Cubs. No doubt rocket home run off Zambrano.. It sounded like a gun shot. (It may have been first ML at bat) It was Soler's was just as "rocketed" and every bit "gun shot". I was eating lunch when that glorious dong was launc...

Re: Who do we want?

Cubs don't traditionally play well in LA. Mets played on Tuesday, had to travel across country, play a night game on Thursday and then would have to travel across country again only to have to play again on Saturday. Both teams have great starters, but I think the Mets for pitchers would be more lik...

Re: 10/12 Cardinals (Wacha) @ CUBS (ARRIETA), TBS, 5:07 CT

Why does Joe insist on using Strop against the Cardinals? He's probably in after 1 batter by Richard or to start the 7th. Makes no sense...his career numbers against St. Louis are ATROCIOUS!!!!

And have the third best record in all of baseball, yet sit in third place in their own division and have to rely on a 1-game playoff to try to advance. :(

Looks like he's got this fixed....at least a bit. Two games in a row with a pick off . Should at least keep the other team a bit more honest on the bases.

Starlin is 12 for 36 with 5 RBI in his career against Lynn. Does he get the start in place of Baez, LaStella or Russell?
