Hmmm, yes if only there was something they could do about it

One thing that they probably are not going to do is trust that staff 100% about Strop, who they'd love to have bounce back if he was able to.

Re: Cubs to sign Jeremy Jeffress

He horsefeathering sucks and is washed up. Can’t imagine Strop took much more. Jeffress has also never been good outside of his time with the cheating Brewers. The Cubs know Strop better than anyone and he wanted to come back. That the Cubs didn’t sign him but did sign Jeffers probably says more ab...

Oh who will think of the innocent pitchers who mysteriously all had their spin rates spike when they got to Houston?!

Only the sort of move you make if you've basically given up. Not a good baseball player and has the same flaws our roster was already riddled with.

Re: Cubs Acquire Travis Lakins From Red Sox for Cash/PTBNL

One thing I find interesting about all these bullpen pieces is that they've all been big time spin guys, but none of them have been all that exciting in terms of velocity. I wonder if that's more due to the supply side of things (all else being equal orgs favor velocity over spin) or on the demand ...

Re: The Ricketts family sucks in all kinds of ways

You were happy with the bullpen last year? There's nothing wrong with stockpiling LIAB guys with options in the hope that a couple of them will come through like Wick.
