I like that Joe wanted our guys to get a good look at Davies. And we took him deep twice.

I was at the game in Milwaukee last year when he took a no hitter into the 6th or 7th (I think Fowler and/or Bryant were robbed of near HR's in the first inning).

I don't think other teams' fans and national broadcast type people fully understand how good Contreras will be. As far as breakouts, Russell will be a popular pick, as he was an elite prospect over multiple offseasons, and obviously everyone is expecting big things from Schwarber for a full season. But they'll look up in July and realize we have like the second best catcher in baseball and be like, "horsefeathers, they have him too?"

I agree. I think he finishes with the highest WAR for catchers this year in MLB.

Javy just started congratulating Molina on a great throw on a caught steal before he even caught the ball.

Gif needed now.

I can't wait for more of the Javy Baez Experience.

And, I agree that Willson is going to be a surprising breakout candidate. I think Russell is deservedly getting love as a breakout candidate, because there's so much potential there, and with his defense, the heights can be extraordinary.

But, Willson is legit. His athleticism is pretty rare for a catcher. And I think he is going to put up really good numbers at the plate. I have enough confidence in his bat that I do think he'll be one of the elite catchers in the game.

Cool, tonight's game is on CSN+ and basically all of the starters are playing. Maybe I'll see a dong before I go to bed.

Eddie Butler with another really nice outing. Haven't seen any word on how his stuff looked, though.

turning him into anything worthwhile, much less a very good pitcher, would just be ridiculous

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

Wouldn't he also have been hitting .500 yesterday?

Oh, he was throwing 95 his last outing. I project God Mode Eddie arrives May 2018.

Additional rule: you have to have one or the other.The only exception is you have an amazing board name. davell, I'm looking at you; put up a [expletive] avatar or something if your name only sounds like somebody tried say Dave as they lapsed into a coma.

You're right, it WOULD be ridiculous if he becomes a very good pitcher. In actuality, he's winning a Cy Young.

The crazy thing about that dong was that it didn't even look like Schwarber got all of it
