Does anyone want to plan to meet up for a game in Wrigley July5 or sell season tickets for game?

I guess I forgot that this is industry jargon. We manufactured the silver painted aluminum that wraps the canopies and columns that you can see behind the crowd.

Hector had a MRI on his knee but sounds like nothing serious. Probably will be back over the weekend.

This article by Jesse Rogers seems a bit reactionary after the bullpen's poor performance over the weekend. We get it Jesse, it's frustrating to lose games late but it's going to happen from time to time. He politely calls it a "concern" which maybe it is but what about before this weekend? Up until the Pirate series the bullpen had been pretty darn good with the exception of Strop.

The Good: Edwards has looked great and if we had him over the weekend the Cubs probably don't get swept. Davis has been solid and seems to play the part of closer quite well. Uehara has had one bad outing out of 7 appearances otherwise lights out. Rondon has looked very good and probably the single most encouraging thing about the bullpen. Monty's first game was a brutal loss but he's decent enough since.

The Bad: Strop didn't wake up one day and become a bad pitcher. I think he has the ability to rebound but it seems to be in his head right now, not a physical problem, and he just needs a coupe of good outings to right the ship. Grimm is a complete enigma, he has great stretches and then he falls apart again and I expect this trend to continue. Duensing was never really someone we thought would be a big contributor and was lucky to even be on the roster.

So by my count the Cubs have 5 arms to count on, two arms that are good but are under performing, and one complete dud. So those are my "concerns".

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

If i had to guess it's a number of things for each guy. Regression/aging/decline for some after a lot of innings the last ~2 years, slight calibration issues with some of the readings (tho we seem to be the only team with everyone down while others are up), or guys taking it "easy"/still getting into shape, Len said on 670 a bit ago everyone in the rotation threw the fewest ST innings of their careers this Spring.

Or, you know, pitchers suck and are going to break and all of them are going to horsefeathers at the same time.

I'm not so sure I share his exact conviction about Davis given the data at hand(b/c of the numbers themselves and their reliability), but I also have zero to complain about Davis so far and share the sentiment that the bullpen is in a pretty good place with Davis and Rondon not looking actively broken.

Flipping between games and the Brewers broadcasters said Craig Counsell thought the Brewers played a very good series, but the Cubs showed why they're the World Champs. Said the Cubs extended ABs by their ability to fight off good pitches that usually lead to outs instead of foul balls.

Just thought it was interesting as those games sure seemed frustrating from a Cubs standpoint.

Honestly I think the Brewers have a quality brain trust backing Counsell, who is going to be a really good Manager. I like a lot of the trades they made and I believe they'll be actual contenders in a couple years.

Then they'll have to accept they can't horsefeathers with us and have to blow it up again.

Completely agree. I actually think the Brewers will be our biggest competition going forward.
