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

if rizzo were zach and belding were theo, we could call the red sox JFK junior high and francona miss bliss

theo as mr belding is a huge reach, though.


Ricketts is obviously Belding.

Theo is Beldings cool brother.

Good luck getting a ball through the left side of the infield when Javy and Addison are both over there.

I've seen this happen a number of times, where Javy's spectacular play prevented Addison from making his own spectacular play.

I love him so much. And his use of twitter is hilarious. He uses it exclusively to either retweet people that talk about how amazing he is or to brag after he does amazing things.

This made me laugh:

This makes me swoon. Teams are going to hate the Cubs.

He says some funny things on twitter, and sometimes they come across strangely because english is not his native language.

Yeah, he sounds like a dorky old man. I thought I was missing out on some insane tangent that he went off on.

I love the rebirth of Baez. No matter where he goes, he's pushed himself onto a roster

I have to admit, after 2014 I gave up on him as a potential useful player in the future (shocking that I would be pessimistic about something I know, but I wasnt alone), and it has taken me a long time to feel fully comfortable with him but I am completely on board now. I never would have imagined he would be a 3 win player this year (at 1.9 on FG, 2.2 on BR currently). Obviously he has his flaws, he's never going to walk a bunch, he's always going to have those ABs where he is overmatched from the start and swinging at junk, but overall he is a damn good player and hopefully will get even better. He still only has 675 major league PAs.
