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

Its April 24th and Jason Heyward got his 3rd home run of the season.

He didn't get his 3rd home run until June 6th last year. (He didn't hit his first until May 17th)

Pretty amazing that Brett Anderson is still bad but keeps skating by on sequencing

Fun to pound this punk ass team too

You're not allowed to let Bronson Arroyo in 2017 off the hook. You must punish him

Re: The Cardinals

It's a side benefit that our Victory Tour seasons will coincide with the Cardinals collapsing and looking godawful

Re: There's no tying in baseball!

All of these weird rules they keep trying to put in to increase pace of play are inferior and more drastic than just instituting and enforcing a pitch clock.

Some may feel thats a more fundamental change than the others, but I would welcome it.

Yeah I thought Adam Warren was gonna be a nice little player for us, maybe even start, but boy did he suck.

And checking the numbers now he's given NYY 40 inning of excellent baseball since going back. Guess he just likes New York.

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

hahahaha the Cubs won this game??? Thats amazing.

Team already has more exciting comebacks than the 2016 Cubs did in the first half of the year.

Stealing the heart away from your rivals is pretty fun.

this looks really impressive but getting swept in the one loss makes that W/L not as impressive

its cool though and they're gonna run the table on the entire national league

Carl Edwards as a pinch runner is an inspired pinch runner choice
