I am hoping that as the LaRussa/Matheny influence wanes, they stop with their easily defensive self-righteous [expletive]. While easy to make fun of, its also annoying as all hell. Unfortunately, I think the residents of St. Louis are very defensive in general so that won't completely go away.

I mean if they really do hit him, why shouldn’t the pitcher and Yadi be ejected and suspended for it? They’re clearly giving some evidence this is a planned thing when it happens.

Bryant better watch out. If he gets too close and Yadi chest bumps him, he might get stuck to a St Louisan! imagine the horrific smells!

Should be a team wide mandate: no sliding into 1st. Really excited for KB this year. He is fully capable of 300/400/600.

Yeah, dude is a fine player. Not a superstar. Not close to a $300 million player.

Prove me wrong, KB.

Not saying it will happen, but the Cubs coming back from a 3-1 deficit to win the World Series does seem like the appropriate way to cap off this season and make the 30-for-30 even better.

Speaking of Bryant and Prior, lol Mark Appel's career. Never trust a pitcher. We'll never know if the reports that the Cubs draft board was Appel first then Bryant were true or not, but damn we are lucky if they were.

It's been confirmed they had Bryant first on their draft board. I think there's even a pic somewhere (conspiracy theories >> they changed it after the draft) and I believe Keith Law said the Cubs were very high on Bryant and were worried Houston might take him first. Bryant himself said he got the feeling the Cubs were highest on him and were going to take him.

Now, I wonder if they had Appel second and how they viewed them. Was there consensus on Bryant or did Theo & Jed want to play it safe with the advanced college bat while McLeod and other scouts wanted to select the dumb pitcher. Who knows?

Off days are boring and stink, so I'm placating myself by checking out the Cubs' individual splits on BR. Almost everyone is looking pretty, pretty, pretty, pri-tay good in some way...except for Bryant.

Someone smarter at baseball than me make me feel better by pointing out some things that I'm missing when I end up bummed out by consistently mediocre his splits seem to be so far.

It's all bad, well, except for the standard "he's done it before, so he'll be fine" positive thoughts. I still worry about that shoulder issue creating a new normal for him. I sure as hell won't be just assuming he'll be fine when it's all said and done until he actually is.
