Re: Funniest heckles you have heard at baseball games

I was at a AAA game on a freezing cold April day. I think it was game two of a double header. There had to have been <100 people in the ballpark. Sal Fasano came to the plate with a .204 average or something like that and some guy yells, audible throughout the entire stadium. "Hey Sal, I see yo...

Re: If we could only have one

SP, easy. There are still too many question marks with everyone behind Arrieta and Lester when it comes to a playoff series. Lackey is better than what we had going last season, but not by much.

Hammel should be considered, no?

I got irrationally upset (shocker, right?) when Lackey didn't come out for the 8th for this reason alone.

Anyway, I'll take your poison nacho recipe, tree.

Not a great day for Hammel or Cahill. Hopefully Dex is OK.

Re: Cubs sign Shane Victorino to minor league deal

Seems pretty clear that Sczcur/Murton/Victorino will be fighting it out for the 5th OFer spot. Probably isn't any more complex than that.

Re: Why is Carrie Muskat tweeting that fowler is back to the Cubs on a 1 year deal?

Pretty obviously Fowler saying that in the video. And why do you think that? It can't be the voice giving it away. Fowler sounds just as nerdy as Theo does when he talks. You don't think it's possible that it's the guy who has his head tilted back as if he's shouting and whose physical cadence matc...

It's clearly Fowler that says it.

Re: Why is Carrie Muskat tweeting that fowler is back to the Cubs on a 1 year deal?

I would have guessed that it'd be Soler in RF, Heyward in CF, Schwarber in LF with Fowler picking up ABs at all three positions as the others get off days, against tough RHP, and when Schwarber catches. Soler as a roamer makes much less sense. People are assuming this makes Dexter the everyday CF, ...

What the heck? We have 4 above average outfielders on the roster now.

Re: Coghlan to A's for RHP Aaron Brooks

Sad to see him go, but it would've been tough to find ABs for him. A RH reserve OFer makes more sense for this team.

2016 TV Schedule Out

http://chicago.cubs.mlb.com/schedule/br ... p?c_id=chc

Nothing real ground-breaking but there it is. 2 ESPN games listed for now (inc. opening night) + 1 ST game. We'll probably end up with more than any other team by the time the season is over.

Man, I can't wait.

Re: Fowler

I love the idea of bringing Fowler back and swapping Soler for a good young SP. Not only would you deepen the rotation, but put Heyward in his more comfortable position and the OF defense becomes a lot better. Having Lackey/Hendricks as 4-5 starters makes my mouth water. If the right Soler deal is o...
