I, personally, do not think 7 different players will hit leadoff for us.

Happ, Zobrist, Almora, Rizzo will get his token game or 2, Schwarber, LaStella, Baez/Russell and some AAA/FA guy are all options I see getting at least a game

That’s going to be hard when Happ hits 162 leadoff dongs.


While only seeing 162 leadoff pitches.

Joe will use 7 different lead off guys in the first week and a half in September after we clinch the division in August and the whole roster goes on a bender with Theo.

He bats the pitcher lead-off for a week to see if anybody will copy him. That actually sounds like a Dusty idea, get the pitcher out of the way early so they don't kill a rally down at the bottom of the lineup!

I always pictured Dusty calling a pitchout when there’s a full count. Or issuing a IBB with the bases loaded just so the batter doesn’t hit a grand slam.

Not that it's much (if any) of a difference, but why the horsefeathers did you link to the Skokie 10-day forecast instead of Chicago?

I was slightly worried you were privy to some kind of insider info about the renovations being disastrously behind schedule.

What struck me the most about this opening series was how horsefeathers the balls and strikes were called by the umpires.
