The obvious solution is for other teams to hit him every game using a tube sock full of quarters.

Re: Trade targets 2019

Big changes are coming in the off season. Mini rebuild here we come starting with not re-upping Maddon and going a cheaper route. No way are they signing Sgt. Girardi. If their not gone by the deadline in a week - Schwarber, Russell, Al Mora & Happ flipped for young pitching & position play...

Re: Trade targets 2019

They better get it together or we might have to flip to what prospects we want from other teams and sell the few guys in our BP who get outs. It's not the least appetizing idea ever. This group is so dysfunctional a deadline deal or two isn't gonna fix it. You have to figure a teardown is coming at...

Re: General Baseball Chit-Chat Thread

So Marisnick destroys Lucroy, giving him a concussion and a broken nose and he gets a two game suspension. Last night, an Angels relief pitcher plunked Marisnick intentionally in the upper back and gets a three game suspension. I know it’s a pitcher so he’s not going to pitch every game. I’m fully ...

Re: The Terrible Umpires Thread

If they add the rule about pitchers needing to step off to pickoff runners, all those runners are gonna have an extra half-step on their leads to make up for geared up catchers. Net neutral on the running game, the strike zone is more accurate, and we give the LHP balk pickoff moves the fiery death...

Re: It's Maddoning

I'd guarantee Maddon hates red assed Hurdle. One enjoys his glass of wine, the other is busy shotgunning Milwaukees Best This is hate speech. I am an avid wine drinker and also an imbiber of mass quantities of cheap beer. #LoveIsLove Seriously, you can do both. Why do you hate fun? But Hurdle is a ...

He has benefitted greatly from the pill enhanced ball (PEB). So many warning track fly balls the last couple of years. Going out this year!

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...
