Re: Familia to mystery team (not Cubs)

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I wonder if Chatwood and Montgomery going the same day indicates that Chatwood is about to lose his spot in in the rotation, or if it's purely because they want those two pitching on a day where they have an extra bullpen arm available. I'd imagine Chatwalk starts game 1 of the DH. He'll get knocke...

I'm very confused.


Maybe other fans realized during game and we’re giving his family a hard time.

Re: NL Central Also-Rans: Reds, Brewers, Pirates

Now that the Cubs are back in first place, I think this is the thread that should be used to discuss the VBs (instead of the "Teams that will not win the WS" thread.

Marte HRs in the first and the VBs are already down.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Maybe you take your chances with Monty on Friday to see how much pen they need. After the game, they make a roster move/Iowa shuttle to bring back a reliever for Saturday. Couple that with an addition pitcher for the two Saturday games (26th man) and there should be plenty of arms available. Have Le...

Any teams they could trade him for salary dumps? He still has almost $50 million over the next 3 years, so it would be tough for the Cards to swallow. And also tough for another team to take on. Would the DBacks take a flyer on him in order to get rid of Yasmany Tomas' contract? Wouldn't he be the t...

Justine Wilson of 2017 seems to have gone back (at least modestly) to 2018 Justin Wilson. Maybe there's hope for Chatsuck.
