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...

  • Not certain why the site has been slowed. Worked much of Wednesday on it and will continue today. Sorry for the inconvenience. I will probably take it offline for a while, but it will be up before the game against the Mets.

  • Mine has been really slow to load -- on different computers from different locations.

  • Boras is 63, maybe he'll be retired or dead by the time Bryant, Russell, Almora, Albertos all hit free agency. Doubt he will be before Jake hits there though.

  • Interesting choices when guys get healthy.

    LaStella, Fowler & Soler replace Coghlan, Almora and Sczcur? I assume they don't want Almora to sit.

    Despite MIggy's demise, I assume they keep him around to mentor Contreras?

  • I believe Willson now has more CS than MIggy. The kid has an arm. Also, Russell is amazingly good on those plays at 2nd.

  • oh yeah...thanks joe/billy.

  • Although it felt like it, Jake didn't lose to them -- he got the W. (Assuming you are referring to Monday's game)

  • Arrieta didn't lose to the Reds. He got the win -- he just didn't pitch like we expect him to.

  • almora's 1st HR!

  • it's not like this CIN team is lost-cause horrible, but aside from defense and power this is a truly horrible team.

    kinda crazy arrieta lost to them and yesterday's game had to go 15 innings for the cubs win.

  • It looked like Hamilton got screened by Duvall and that Duvall just barely deflected the ball off of his glove--redirecting it slightly without taking away much of its momentum.

    At least it didn't turn into a Schwarber/Fowler situation. Hamilton and Duvall are both pretty important youngish players for the Reds.

  • he walked off the field on his own. aside from a concussion watch and some attention to his leg/knee that buckled a bit under him, the biggest thing hurt was probably his pride after the ball knocked off his skull.

  • After last night, an inside-the-park HR seems kind of run-of-the-mill somehow.

    Sounds bad for Hamilton. Hope he's okay--listening on the radio.

  • SHOW ME THE MONEY: Jose Albertos has signed with Mega-Agent Scott Boras.

    Albertos has already received his signing bonus and won't see any additional significant money until he reaches the big leagues, so this is a long-term investment for the Boras Corporation.  

    Other Cubs represented by Boras include Jake Arrieta, Kris Bryant, Addison Russell, and Albert Almora Jr.

  • I am glad Joe is managing this team and not Old and Blue!
