Jed needs to get on the radio and question his effort, that's how good teams handle slumps.

The game sucked, but at least we got to see this. It made Rizzo super happy.

Oh man, don't let the BFIB see this. Just confirms their conspiracy theory that Dexter is a Cubs' plant inside their clubhouse.

Suddenly Rizzo's season line is starting to look like every other season. 10 HRs needed to get to 32, which would bump the slugging up to normal.

That's horsefeathering awesome but I should never read these stories at my desk in front of other people. Hope the kid lives a long & happy life.

In just one more April game last year, he managed to put up a ghastly .149 .259 .189 .448 even worse than his hideous 2019 April line of .159 .312 .317 .629, sooooooooooooo...progress?

Just a hunch but I don’t think he’ll maintain a .159 BABIP all year.
