The Cubs’ transaction list under Epstein and Hoyer reads like a work of fiction, a wish-fulfillment list composed in hindsight.

I feel like the jockey on the horse at the Kentucky Derby passing all of the horses down the stretch, only to realize that Secretariat has already finished the race and is in the Winner's Circle.

I've had a good second half of the season after being as low as 12th in the standings. I nearly dropped Abreu at the ASB, but I am glad that I didn't pull the trigger.

I humbly apologize for the delayed updates during the final month of the season. To make up for it, I have already put together the necessary data for the 2017 HR Derby, and will continue to update that as the final week plays out. Then I won't have anything to do over the winter, except keep track of player movement. Once March 2017 rolls around, I can roll out the new season of HRD for the new season of MLB.

LOL - While that's likely the case, that's not sound strategy.

Even by not trying standards, getting only 1 HR between the last two updates is pretty awful. David has shamed robots everywhere with his meatbag-ways.
