Jeff Samardzija vs. the Astros. It's Shark Week on the DISCUBBERY Channel.
I learned the word "Cubbery" right here at TCR.
And it sure seems like we've been seeing quite a bit of the DISCUBBERY Channel this year.
When Jeff Samardzija broke a bat over his knee last week, do you have any idea how lucky we were that he didn't, you know, break his wrists?
And then we wouldn't have Shark Week starting Monday night.
Jeff Samardzija is 7-10 with a 4.21 ERA, and the guys runnin' the show for the Cubs think he's one big gigantic piece of the future.
Me too, by the way.
And he'll be on the mound against the Houston Astros.
A team who, as a fan, I cannot stand and now can't stand even more.
We kind of figured the Cubs would lose 100 games this year, right?
In fact, if they lose 31 more games then...goal reached.
Because a team that loses 100 games... wellllll, you'd sure figure that team would get the number one pick in the draft, right?
Well, the freaking Astros only have to lose 22.
Well said. On one hand, I thought the HBP was a bad baseball play -- down 4 runs, put a runner on for a red-hot Fowler. On the other hand, they needed to do something -- I hadn't thought about the warning/pitching inside point. Is Hurdle that smart? He does not strike me that way. By the way -- not clear which fan base you are referring to in your "first" 3rd point.
1. I hate the fact that after 162 games, a team could be out after 1 game. However, I think the system is pretty close to perfect right now. 2 of 3 isn't feasible unless they shorten the regular season, and it ices the division winners for way too long. This creates excitement, and rewards the division winners.
Call me lost.
I just noticed the Dodger's payroll today. It is just absurd. $300,000,000+!!
Here is where just some of their money is for 2015:
Carl Crawford $20MM
Brandon McCarthy $17MM
Bronson Arroyo $3.5MM
Darwin B $2.2MM
Dan Haren $10MM
Matt Kemp $18MM
Brian Wilson $10MM
Ryan Webb $2.2MM
Dee Gordon $2.5MM
Enjoyable read on David Ross.
Er, they won the first one. My bad. Carry on.
BOB: I doubt very much that Matt Szczur will be on the Cubs LDS roster.
