Easter Funnies: Edwin Jackson Won!

Happy Easter.
I mean, I guess Edwin Jackson won.
I gotta check my sources...hang on...


AND Darwin Barney really gotta hold of one. The bad news with that is it may have bought him more playing time. Maybe the good news will be that another team noticed.

Nice move by Rob's new webmaster on moving the site over to cloudflare. This will be a great help for security for those of you worried about that kind of stuff.

When did Eric Wedge turn 60?

veras gives up a HR to the 1st batter he faces...ugg.

...and a 2nd homer 2 outs and a walk later...ugg.

also, j.baez returned to action in iowa...0-4, 3Ks

Free agency is a dice roll for pitchers.

Kris Bryant is striking out 26.7% of the time at AA and I just couldn't care less.

4 hr, 4 doubles, and 10 walks in 60PA helps that go down easier.

i.stewart (LAA) is hitting cleanup vs WAS tonight...lulz.

.250/.276/.571 (29 PA, 1hr + 2 triples propping that slugging)

  • I'd guess Jackson over Coghlan for the defense.

    EDIT: Now that I think about it, is Jackson a better defender?

  • Less stress on the pitching staff?

  • I recall earlier this season when the Cubs played Bryant in center instead of left due to the weirdness that is the PNC outfield.

  • AZ Phil, what is the reason the Cubs are co-oping this team? They seem to have plenty of talent that would fill a roster.

  • RF is actually easier to play than LF in PNC so I'd guess Schwarber is there and that's why he was playing it Friday but yeah I'd say that's hopefully accurate.

  • Guess for Wednesday's lineup: Fowler (CF), Schwarber (LF), Bryant (3B), Rizzo (1B), Castro (2B), Montero (C), Russell (SS), Arrieta (P), Coughlan (RF)

  • Dusty already has blue and red wrist bands.

    /cmon dude

  • a day old, but fwiw...

    Carrie Muskat @CarrieMuskat · Oct 4
    Theo and Jed at Miller Park to talk to #Cubs Maddon and staff. Playoff roster to be finalized by Wednesday morning

  • I'm guessing the order is the other way around.

  • cc sab going into alcohol rehab, missing the post-season for the yanks.

  • no bud black? cold.

  • Break up the Cubs!
    MLB.com throws out two names to manage the Nats: Dave Martinez and Wally Backman.

  • matt williams (WAS) fired...shocker. he lost control and confidence of that clubhouse way before papelbum got there.

    having a roster chock full of egomaniacs and assholes doesn't help.

    he won 'manager of the year' last year, fwiw.

  • If he were dealing with Chicago traffic, I would take my chances with the golf cart.

  • You can get to the MKE airport from Miller Park via all surface streets, no real reason to get on the expressway. Unless he is in a real hurry to get to Az.

  • CUBSTER: I would think a cab or a limo would get Motte to the airport faster than a golf cart. The maximum speed of a golf cart is (what?) maybe 15 MPH, which could actually be dangerous on an expressway.
