Re: Sources: Cubs have a deal in place for Cole Hamels

1) he can

2) Darvish still exists

3) once september hits you can limit his workload since the entire iowa shuttle is in the pen

Re: Cole Hamels

I've seen the science on the Texas pitchers and I'm willing to gamble on long man innings out of our 6th best RP with Chavez, but I'm not willing to trust a rotation spot to it.

Dave Cameron still can't believe the Rays managed to fleece the Cubs out of 60 replacement level PAs from Robinson Chirinos before they [squints] sold him to Texas for nothing.

Re: General Cubs Chit-Chat

Garza would never pitch in a postseason game again; he'd leave the Cubs for the Rangers right before their postseason run would begin


This is a funny way of saying he was traded for Olt, Edwards, Grimm, and Neil Ramirez.

Is that suggested somewhere? I haven't seen any specificity to Gausman/Bundy rumors.

As for Hamels, on one hand he's definitely been hurt by the funhouse at Arlington like Chavez. On the other hand, absolutely not.

If the season ended today, the only NL teams not to have made the playoffs more recently than the Cardinals would be the Marlins, Padres, Pirates, and Reds.

Are the Cubs starters going to bounce back based on thousands of innings of past performance?

No, it is the children projections that are wrong.

Re: Cubs acquire Jesse Chavez from Texas!

This feels like ‘we need another Montgomery in the pen because some combination of Darvish being dead and Chatwood being better off dead means Montgomery isn’t going back to the pen anytime soon’.

The AL is 85-102 against the NL this year. At current winning percentages, the Indians will play about 110 games against teams with a losing record, and they are currently playing at an 89 win pace.

Cimber also going to Cleveland with Hand, Mejia the headliner going to San Diego. This feels a whole lot like the Samardzija/Hammel deal. Or like when the Nats got Doolittle and Madson in the same deal. One stop shopping to fix the bullpen. I was also thinking of the angle that they're getting a pr...

Re: The Cardinals

I do agree with the 'challenge right away or don't' sentiment. It's a bit absurd to me that they let teams delay the game to look at replays to decide whether to ask umpires to look at replays. If that team is pitching there's not a ton that can be done, although a pitch clock would help with that.
