100-Game Mark TCR Reader Survey: Question 1

I first asked these four questions after the Cubs' 50th game of the season.  You can compare these polls to the previous results for questions 1, 2, 3 and 4.  I'll keep the polls open through Saturday, and how about we discuss all four polls in this thread, I'll keep the comments closed on the other three threads.   Please be sure not to miss the importat medical and trade news in TCR posts below these polls, too.

How satisfied are you with the performance of the Chicago Cubs ball-club?

Comments

Rob, others, please feel free to post updated trade news above this stuff, as it becomes available.

As if you needed my blessing, anyway.  :)

Wow, looks like Manny has got some disciples.

Thanks, fixed it!

They had an awful 3.5 months and now they've had a great 2 weeks. I'm optimistic about the team right now so I voted 'somewhat satisfied'. They are just lucky that the rest of the division has been awful, but they are right there in the wild card race too.

Jim Hendry: Somewhat unsatisfied. Sure he put together a decent team, but I think a lot of people could take the Cubs payroll and put together a decent team. As I said before, Hendry does just fine spending money, the problem is he doesn't always get good value for the money he does spend.

I voted the same on Hendry and Very unsatisfied for Pinhead who has pretty much managed his bullpen and his corner outfielders as poorly as anyone possibly could.

Hendry did correct some of his off-season blunders with the removal of Gathright and the addition of Baker, but you can't give a guy too much credit for correcting the errors he created. Plus the 2nd catcher thing...

  • Javy's grunge dive into the stands for the popup was awesome - the hitting into the double play not so much

  • everyone but heyward with a hit and a 3 run lead with coghlan on 3rd through 5 batters. hell yeah.

    okay, this is just silly. 19 pitches in, 1 out, 4 runs in, men on 1st and 2nd...hendricks up to bunt.

    ...and almora contributes the final out. that was a fun inning.

  • Clearly, Joe Maddon is a Lineup Wizzard.

  • "Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Friday that Anthony Rizzo (back) is feeling better and it's "possible" the first baseman could return to the lineup Saturday."

  • Maddon shore isn't afraid to bat a rookie 4th in the order.

  • how many pairs of dice did dusty leave hidden around the park when he left the cubs?

  • Line-up shakeup, going all-2015 with pitcher batting 8th, Bryant 2nd

    J-Hey, Bryant 1B, Zobrist, Willson, Coghlan, Baez 3B, Russell, Hendricks, Almora

  • The Cubs are currently down Schwarber, Fowler, Soler, and Rizzo and Montero appear to be day-to-day. Maybe not surprising that they are struggling a bit as they rely more than expected on Baez, Russell, Almora, Contreras, and Szczur to provide offensive value.

  • Joe: "I loved the way we brought it today, man. We'll take this every night and win a lot of ballgames like that. Losing 4 in a row...that's nothin'."
