Re: #NotAllPitchers

Cespedes just came up hobbling trying to run into 2B on a ball to the gap he probably wasn't even running full speed on.

Re: I like Gold Gloves and I cannot lie: the Jason Heyward thread

They were the low Derek Lee hands before they were the low Rizzo hands. Huh? He held the bat really high, comparatively speaking to Rizzo's/Heyward's hands. Are you thinking of Aramis? I think he lowered his hands over the course of his career/time with us. http://www.thedailycub.com/wp-content/upl...

Re: 4/26 World Champs (Lester) @ Pirates (Glasnow) 6:05pm CSN-C+

Stop hating on Baez. Sneaky has waited years for the opportunity, sure, but at worst Baez is a defensive whiz at 2nd, with enough power to provide value in bursts offensively. Leave Baez alone. another way of saying he's terrible offensively and provides literally negative value despite his defense...

Amazing...remember when they gave him his own show and it didn't even get better ratings than the AND1 basketball and bowling it was up against on their other networks?

Re: Sports Media Thread

If they don't cut Shefty then they aren't really serious about these cuts. He does nothing original and for what he makes you could hire 5 interns for probably 1/20 of what he costs to follow the necessary guys on twitter to break news on ESPN's twitter page, ESPNs bottom line, etc. Who cares if you...

Full count on Jay, who had seen about 11 pitches. Just trying to stay out of a double play and well Jay swung and missed on the only pitch of a 10+ pitch AB for a strike em out throw em out.

Re: 4/25 World Champs (Hendricks) @ Pirates (Cole) 6:05pm WGN

As a team are the Cubs walking a lot less so far this year? Without bothering to do an iota of actually research, it's seems like every game I check to see the walks they maybe manage to draw 1-2 at best. We have the 6th best team BB% in MLB at 10.1% only .5% separates us from the 2nd best team and...
