Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Is it me or does Joe seem very reluctant to pitch Chatwood? It seems he has earned a bit more trust This is far from a fully formed thought, but it seems like with Montgomery essentially piggybacking with Darvish for now, Chatwood is by default the long man, and needs to be saved for those situatio...

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

I'm here for the punishment. Chatwood, Heyward and Maples are all basically fixed (not perfect) and will be good contributors from here on out as the Cubs win the Central and the Series this year. Maples ain’t but I’m buying low on the other guys I bought low on Heyward 2 years ago. That, uh, didn’...

We'll see. He could end up like Miguel Cabrera, or he could end up like Pablo Sandoval.


so either an elite hall of fame career or a good career


I would say this is accurate on both (both that Pablo Sandoval had a merely but clearly good career and that that is Jr's floor.)

More evidence that Joe Maddon sucks: https://www.bleachernation.com/2019/04/28/wow-vets-came-to-joe-maddon-to-insist-that-david-bote-start-today/ This is all about Zobrist wanting to see Bote get a chance over Russell. I've heard Zobrist is not at all happy that Russell has been welcomed back.

Re: Addison Russell

The icing on this poop cake will be when Russell is lauded as having "saved the season" as the Cubs inevitably turn it around some time in the next 20 games.

"Cubs' record before Addison Russell return: 11-17 After: 41-26" or some such graphic around the all-star break.
