I don’t go to espn, so thanks for the link. That was a great read. Joe West doesn’t bother me, and from the article, sounds like he’s pretty respected by most players and managers.

Re: 2020 Playoff Race

Was thinking AL teams that are HR-hitting teams might struggle in San Diego and LA. I've always thought those stadiums were not overly friendly for HRs, at least not during the night when the air is cooler. But it looks like LAD and SD lead the league in HRs thus far. Maybe the numbers are skewed be...

Re: South Bend Shuttle

I'd bring Hamilton up tomorrow and start him against the Reds for a couple of games. You could really sit any of the three starters in the OF, although Schwarbs hits Mahle pretty well. But Happ and Heyward have been absolute trash against the Reds projected starters. Combined, those two are: 2/30 ag...

Billy Hamilton should try to bunt for a hit at least once a game (that he starts).

Re: The Terrible Umpires Thread

Rizzo, West said, had been yelling at umpires from his suite, saying things like “you’re brutal.” Because of the COVID-19 pandemic and the lack of fans in the stadium, everything can be heard down on the field. “I wouldn’t take that from a player. I wouldn’t take that from a manager,” West said, vi...

Re: It’s not me, it’s Yu

Oh, I agree. I like the signing. He started the contract a little rough. But he’s definitely been a TOR guy. And seems like a great guy and great teammate.

Of course, without the Yu signing, Theo would've signed another starter that year or the next using the money from his contract.

Re: Golf thread

A couple of things: -You probably hit too many balls. Think about it, you probably played 2-2 1/2 round of golf in that bucket of balls. You either got tired, which is why you started hitting poorly, or you got too comfortable in your good swings an inadvertently or subconsciously changed your swing...

Re: 2020 Trade Deadline Targets/Rumors

Maybe the issue isn't who the Cubs should go after, but rather, who on the roster would other teams want?

Re: Thom Brennaman is an intolerant horsefeathers

If you're gonna call a homerun during an apology for using a slur on air, at least have some balls and put a little life into the call. C'mon man, Nicky C just went yard!

This is funny. When I was a kid, I always wondered why, if baseball managers and coaches wear the baseball uniform, why football coaches didn't "pad up".

Re: Cubs TV broadcast rights

Did it also bother you mildly when they may or not have been forced to wear WGN polos, or Comcast shirts, or maybe ESPN or Fox gear for games? I mean, "forced" is a bit strong, no. Have Len and JD complained about wearing shirt/tie? I just can't see how this is even remotely an issue for a...

I can’t understand why it matters what Len and JD wear. It's typical 'rich jackasses not remotely knowing what people who only make five figures care about' syndrome .

Re: South Bend Shuttle

I know it doesn't mean too much, but the few times I watched Cotton pitch, he was getting lit up. Lot of hard contact. Cubs are no worse without him.
