2014 seems so long ago, after all the winning.

if javy is really ambidextrous (says he is and says that's why he can tag like that) i kinda feel like he should give switch hitting a try. not like he can be much worse vs righties anyway.

I'm not saying Lester didn't suck tonight. It was more the tone of the post. It was too angry. Saying Lester pitched bad isn't a problem.

Solid game Lester. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk You might be taking April games a little too seriously if you are calling out Jon Lester, who is coming off a season where he went 19-4 with a 2.44 ERA and then gave us 35.2 IP of 2.02 ERA pitching in the playoffs, while leading us to our first ...

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-26-17

Jason Vosler has hit three homers for Tennessee today. Charcer Burks is 3-5 with a double. Rough starts for Jen-Ho Tseng and Jose Paulino. Zack Short is at it again, with a double and two walks in 3 PA, plus a SB.

Some people said that Jesse Rogers' emergence at ESPN gave him an edge over Saxon in job stability. That looks less true today than it did then.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. homered against South Bend. I'm very excited to see him in a couple weeks when I am in South Bend.

Re: Minor League Discussion & Boxes, 4-25-17

What's the word on Zack Short? Anything there? I know nothing about him, but he walked a ton last year, and he's hitting for some pop this year, while playing some short, second, and third. He's a college kid, but doesn't turn 22 until next month. He had a poor junior season in college. Heading int...

Re: The Cardinals

I thought the rivalry with them was fun in 2015, with us both being good and us ripping their hearts out in the playoffs. But, them being a miserable, 95-loss bottom feeder is going to give me so much more enjoyment.

Re: 2017 Game Thread for teams that aren't the defending World Series Champions

Not much better than sitting up top with the Pirates and Cards taking up the rear in the NL Central. The only two teams in the division with negative run differentials, too.

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

Uehara relieving Hendricks seems like it has a potential to be very bad, repertoire-wise I hadn't thought of this occurrence before. But I definitely agree. You have the chance to lull batters to sleep with Hendricks' velocity and then bring 96 out of the pen with Carl or whomever. I'm not sure how...

Agreed. But the Jake Buchanan starts in September might test our mettle.
