Re: 4/24 World Champs (Anderson) @ Pirates (Kuhl) 6pm ESPN

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

I hope he doesn't opt out on us. Call me crazy but I still hope he opts out just because I think the last few yrs are gonna be ugly and the defense will be in decline. Also, we could allocate that money somewhere else to someone better (probably). The fascinating thing about his 8-year contract is ...

Targets on our backs for sure


He went with him for two innings against Baltimore as well. Seems like he's willing to have him pitch multiple innings and burn him for the next day.

Why if they weren't holding him on would we not be sending Heyward to stay out of DP?

Our defense has made some great plays this year, but the amount of not so good ones has been noticeable.

What's been wrong with him today? I mean, he gave up a solo homer in Cincy.

Also, Cubs have now won 5 of the first 6 series, and at 10-7 they are on pace to go 95-67. If only they could start playing well, though.

Maybe this has been discussed, but didn't this Reed dude dominate us in one outing last year? Or bad memory?

I always dreamed of the day when people could make fun of fans for being bandwagon types and they were talking about the Chicago Cubs.

Be honest. Do you really watch the Reds when they aren't playing the Cubs to know how patient they are against other teams? If you do, bless you.

Re: 4/21 World Champion Cubs (Lester) @ Reds (Adleman) 6:10 WGN

We are the best team in baseball, but we also have been positively mediocre so far this season.

However, we also won a World Series in November. I'll take it.
