Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Yeah, I like that idea a lot. Let them work it out during the season. Keep both of their innings down. Keep Montgomery fresh and try to keep Anderson healthy. If another pitcher goes down for a couple weeks, you can slide one of them in and it would be a reasonably easy transition. And if things go ...

It's going to be really fun when Contreras and Russell are .850 OPS monsters and we don't have anywhere we can move them up.

Re: Strop signs extension: thru '18 w/ '19 club option

Yeah, that's a good deal. The club option is a nice touch, too. Bullpens alter so rapidly that it doesn't really matter, but it's good to know we have him for another year to provide stability, if he's healthy. And you get that stability without having to give numerous years to a veteran free agent...

Me too. Zobrist seems perfect for that spot. But, whatever... I don't really care. As long as the good guys go up as quickly as possible, I don't care too much on what order they bat.

Re: Pitchers and Catchers to report on...

I also wonder if the Cubs don't give a crud about injury risk, as is: either the pitcher gets injured or they don't and trying to limit the risk by changing their mechanics is pointless, especially when they end up a much worse pitcher. Other teams might. I also believe that one of the major reason...
