it's def dumb when playing at a park where weather is a non issue.

i completely get why they do it at wrigley and the other places, though (so it totally makes sense that they're not doing one next year)

Re: Heyman - Lucroy to Cubs Done

Did he not pitch in Texas any of those first 32 starts with the Rangers when he had a 3.00 ERA? He did. Then he strained his oblique, came back too soon, and all that other stuff I already posted about for you happened. So that made him bad for 50 starts? No, I already agreed with you. Pennant race...

Re: Heyman - Lucroy to Cubs Done

cole hamels took off because his mechanics were off and he was reworking them leading up to the trade. He had a 10.23 ERA and a 1.043 OPS allowed his final 5 starts with Texas. He allowed 7 ER in his final start, and then It took him 8 starts to give up 7 ER total with the Cubs. he literally said i...
