Re: Cubs get their speedy playoff pinch runner guy

Basically a dead man’s Billy Hamilton. But if he’s essentially a set of late inning legs after roster expansion, that’s really all he needs to be.

Hopefully there’s a little bit of lightning in that bottle. Even if there isn’t, he can’t be any worse than Walkie McWalkerson.

That's messed up bro. You all know we were thinking of Jorge Soler with that misleading title. Not cool.

Re: The Yu Darvish Thread

My thinking is that his agent is just killing time while they play wait and see if the Yankees can free up some cash by moving Elsbury, and if somebody bites, then they bite.

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

Just thinking about the gut-punch dealt to the Brewers. With their win and Colorodo’s loss today, if only the Brewers could have hung onto that 6-0 lead last night, they’d have pushed a 1 game playoff to advance to a 1 game playoff.

Re: The Cardinals

Goodness, the Indians are just out of their minds. 32-2 in their last 34, is that some kind of record?

With Kluber/Carrasco to Miller, there’s going to be some very low scoring games in the post season.
