A round of applause for Arizona Phil and his Cubs ST coverage!
I thought I knew a little about baseball til I started reading your posts here at TCR, Arizona Phil. The depth of your knowledge and your frank, watchful eye have kept us all deeply in the loop of our favorite team. Thanks.
And now...2012! Whatever the hell it turns out to be.

Javy seems to be getting progressively more clueless at the plate -- struck out on an 0-2 pitch in his eyes. HIs baseball IQ is a concern -- if you swing at the first 2 pitches that are not in the strike zone, it is very, very unlikely that the 0-2 pitch will be a strike. Pitchers seem be be almost laughing at him now -- they throw pitches nowhere near the zone on 0-2, and yet he still swings.
This can't be helping his development...time to sit for a bit.
