Duke,

I was wondering if you could pin down what's changed either in Rizzo's approach vs LHP or in how LHP have attacked him these past couple seasons.

Between 14 and 15 he basically posted a 400 wOBA against LHP. Last year that dropped to 360, and of course the sample is miniscule this season, but he's down to 300, hitting 175 against them.

do you want Rizzo to die? that's what Duke is doing to players this year.

Maybe it's just a lack of at bats against Siegrist.

6-6 with 3 HR's leading off the game. Is that good? Asking for a friend.

I'm not sure if Elizabeth Moss is a fan of shirtless Rizzo or if her publicist just happens to always use an Rizzo gif to announce good news.

Edit - woah guess she is a fan, Am I dumb for not knowing ?

Nice dig there lol. So, for people who don't know Elisabeth Moss is a Scientologist. Yeah, I can already see posters cringing after learning that...

She's also a Cubs fan, but also a freakin' Scientologist.

Schwarber would have been more appropriate. According to Al Yellon, his charity work this year caused his death.

No fielding errors on the year I believe and can’t get a Gold Glove. Paulie G down in Zona is the only other cat I’d pick to man first these days

Rizzo's throwing ability is something I'm not sure I've seen from a 1B before. It's crazy. He should win the GG every year he's in the league (not only for that reason, obviously).

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

I don't know how in the heck Rizzo got the Platinum Glove last year as a 1B, but I really don't know how you go from that to not even getting a Gold Glove this year. He was just as good.
