Re: The Cardinals

Imagine being so horrible that you've given up hope of winning this division in June.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Monty is legit. I really like him. Let him start forever, or at least until he runs up against an innings limit and you throw him in the pen for the playoff run.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

The handling of these injuries is mind-boggling, especially with the depth we have (or at least had until other injuries/Schwarber sucking arose). We sent LaStella down to the minors because of a roster crunch.

I thought they were bad. But they're really embarrassingly bad.

I can't even fathom that being possible.

http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/jon-lester-might-be-beating-the-yips/ Pretty good article/interview on Lester's pickoffs. It really is amazing how effective they've become, in a total team effort, in shutting down the running game when he's on the mound. This was a good article. I'm glad to see Jon ...

Transmogrified Tiger wrote:Arrieta now has 15 starts on the year.

First 8 starts: 44.2 IP, 5.44 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, 49/13 K/BB, 8 HR

Last 7 starts: 40 IP, 3.15 ERA, 1.10 WHIP, 40/12 K/BB, 5 HR


Judging by the WHIP disparity and the K/BB being similar, it looks a lot like he was getting BABIP'd.

All of those "Do the Cubs regret trading Gleyber and not Schwarber?" takes, and now only one of them can lead their AAA team to the playoffs.
