2011 Cubs LVP
Click here if you're having issues with the poll within the post. Previous losers were:
- 2010 - Lou Piniella
- 2009 - Alfonso Soriano
|Jim Hendry||left team with little rotation depth, and lots of dead weight on contracts.|
|Carlos Marmol||2-6, 4.01 ERA, 34 SV, 10 BSV, 98 ERA+, 0.9 WAR||blew league leading 10 Saves|
|Mike Quade||acted very confused, consistently...|
|Alfonso Soriano||244/289/469 104 OPS+, 1.4 WAR||if you care to concentrate on the value portion of LVP, Soriano gave little bang for the buck|
|Carlos Zambrano||9-7, 4.82 ERA, 145.2 IP, 81 ERA+, 1.4 WAR||similar to Soriano, money paid grossly overstated to performance given. May have kicked a puppy.|
I'll leave it open through the end of the week. Comments always appreciated.
Maybe he can even fall asleep/passout at a red light. #cardinalway
hopefully he has enough time to pound 6-10 beers before the drive back home.
: / )
Yeah, there's that....
CTSteve -- have they decided to skip tomorrow's game...? (I keed)
Not a bad thing -- Bryant and Miggy are hurt, and Ross could use a day off.
2016 .607 ops
Plus bad fielding
taylor davis moved to AAA to take the place of that other catcher guy dude person.
Who's Mr. June-August? Can't be Jorge "Mr. 1.705 Playoff OPS " Soler, can it?
Chesny Young 4-5 tonight for Tenn. Now hitting .410 with an OBP over .500.
Looks like Soler has decided to take the "can't play in the cold" thing head-on. No longer wearing the cold-weather under gear.
Cubs record for last 3 months of regular season baseball: 59 - 23. (Aug, Sept/Oct and April, with one still to go).
That's a .720 winning percentage and projects to 117 wins over 162 games.
That's a lot of dance parties.
So where does Warren G rank in the list of terrible "Take me out to the ballgame" renditions? It's gotta be near the top.
